TJ was a Godsend to me in my third trimester of pregnancy! He was extremely professional, knowledgeable and courteous from our initial consult right thru the completion of the job. As others have stated in their reviews, it's a comfort to know his prices are what he quotes. Technically, the jobs I needed done were minor plumbing fixes but they were enormous to me pressed for time with family guests flying in and no clue of how and when I could fix them. TJ is friendly, timely, considerate and most of all efficient in getting my kitchen sink leak and my master bath leaks fixed in no time. I actually look forward to having him back to help me check other items off my list of home repairs and maintenance todo's. So worth every dime ;)

Glad I hired Rob instead of taking the advice of my plumbing company to replace my two toilets. Rob fixed them and only replaced faulty parts, saving me lots of money. Communicating with Rob was very convenient. He asked I text him pictures of the toilet parts. He then researched them and order replacement parts on my behalf, thus saving me time as well. I will definitely retain Rob's services for future maintenance and remodeling work for my home. Great guy to have a conversation with too :)

Very happy with the work done! I had 2 TVs hung. One of them was a 60 inch over a fireplace with a sound bar. I thought it was going to be a simple job, but boy was I wrong! The Fireplace ended up being a lot more challenging than I had assumed. The Diaz Bros were able to come up with a plan, and got the job done exactly how I wanted it. I will definitely use their services again when needed and refer them to my friends and family!

Thank you New Life Moving Co. for helping us with our move, which wasn’t an easy one. We moved out of a large multi building complex and our apt to their truck was not close by. From 3pm-12:30am these guys worked, non stop and hard. They were awesome! I’m very grateful for them!

I really enjoyed working with Renato Gudiel. He did most most of the deck work himself. He was always punctual and very dependable and most of all easy to work with. I was able to save a lot by reusing my trek. Renato was really good about cleaning up the trek before reusing it cause there was a lot of junk that had to be scraped off. And he made sure all the trash was hauled off. He also helped me by suggesting different options for railing because I wanted everything to be maintenance free so we decided on vinyl. During the process he would text me pictures of what I might like and I would text him of what I found and he'd look into it. Thank you Renato I love my deck and I especially love my maintenance free vinyl gate and railing. I'm still looking for my deck cover! LOL!

Zuriel, is the best person I’ve ever had come and work on my projects. Very professional from the initial phone call, showing up on time, assessment of the project and providing constant updates to me and my sister. He had a person repair my broken water pipe, and then he drywalled the area after a few days to determine if the pipes were not leaking. Then another few days of painting and texture on the ceiling, drying and repeat. He matched the paints perfectly. Great value for the price and expertise. My schedule was chaotic and he worked around it and also with my sis to get the job completed on time. If he was running late, he sent me a text or called. I’m so pleased that I’ve walked him thru my house showing other projects. I know he is advertised as a painter but he is knowledgeable about other house maintenance projects.

I use them for maintenance on my own home.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

What does a handyman do?

A handyman is a skilled laborer who provides basic home repairs. Anyone can call themselves a handyman, although most who do so are skilled with repairs and home projects. Reading reviews is a good way to determine their fitness for your job. The tasks a handyman can perform include assembling furniture, painting interiors and exteriors, repairing fences, repairing broken doors or replacing trim, hanging lights, hooking up appliances, and much more. Handymen may have flat fees for certain services, or charge an hourly rate. Handyman rates are often lower than those of a contractor, as they don’t have the same specialization. Some states have no limit on the work a handyman can perform, while others do. For example, California’s Building and Professions Code section 7048 (small operations) permits handymen to provide work similar to that of a contractor (floor installation, painting, etc.) provided the total cost of labor and materials does not exceed $500. A handyman is a great resource for minor home repairs at a lower cost than a licensed contractor, but for more complex projects, it pays to hire a specialized contractor.

How do you find a good handyman?

Finding a good handyman can change your life. Within days, the endless list of insurmountable tasks that were either out of your skill range or impossible to fit into your busy schedule can be completed. If you know you want help but aren’t sure how to hire the right pro, ask these questions to find the right fit:

  • What is your work experience? If you are putting in a tile backsplash, you want someone experienced with the task, not someone who generally does painting and junk removal.
  • How much do you charge? Handymen often charge hourly rates that vary based on the complexity of the task they’re hired to do, as well as flat rates for standard jobs. Be clear about what they’ll charge before you hire them.
    • On that note, discuss payment details. It’s wise not to pay all the money up front, especially for larger projects. You may be able to pay a deposit for materials and pay the remainder upon project completion.
  • How long will the job take you to complete? If the handyman is as busy as you are and a fence repair is going to take months, you should probably find another qualified handyman for the job.

Read client reviews and follow up with references to make sure you’re choosing the right handyman for your projects. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

Why is property management important?

A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.

Can a handyman do plumbing?

In some states, a handyman can provide plumbing services, but it may be in your best interest to call a plumber, particularly for issues more major than unclogging a drain or attaching a new sink. Hiring a plumber is important because mishandling your water and gas lines has the potential to do great damage to your home, your family’s health, or even the safety of your neighborhood. A handyman is not legally required to have any training or licensing in plumbing matters, while a licensed plumber has undergone years of education and on-the-job training. In some cases, homeowners insurance won’t cover damage caused by plumbing repair done by an unlicensed handyman.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, most plumbers learn their trade through a four- or five-year apprenticeship with 2,000 hours of paid on-the-job training. They also receive classroom education including “safety, local plumbing codes and regulations, and blueprint reading. They also study mathematics, applied physics, and chemistry. After completing an apprenticeship program, plumbers … are considered to be journey workers, qualifying them to perform duties on their own,” according to the DOL. Licensed plumbers should do continuing education to keep abreast of safety and technology changes. Poor plumbing can lead to sewage backups, a flooded home or even natural gas leaks, so it’s best to leave it in the hands of a specialized professional.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
