Juan was an excellent handyman. I had him come to hang a few pictures and with a few quick instructions he hung everything up with care and attention to detail. Would definitely hire him again in the future! Thanks Juan :)

Hardworking and got the job done before I even received a quote from someone else! Daniel was very competitive with pricing and pleasant to deal with. Since, he is a handyman, I will call upon him for other tasks in the future.

Edward helped me install some picture wall shelves that expanded across a large concrete wall. Communication was smooth and prompt; he arrived on time and ready to go. He helped me design a layout and was very professional, yet, personable. He takes a lot of pride in what he does and it shows in his work. The work took about 2 hours total and I am very pleased with the outcome/product. I would highly recommend him for any services requiring a handyman/electrician!

We had a great experience. We had a heavy mirror and chrome kitchen shelf that needed to be hung in plaster walls. He was professional and efficient. Thanks to him our dining room and kitchen look SO much better. We will definitely be asking him to help us out in the future for all our handyman and plumbing needs :)

Jesus installed an ac unit for us. He was running late, but he made sure to keep me updated of when he would arrive. He did an excellent job installing the ac unit for a fair price. We will definitely use his services again for the next handyman project.

For the last few years, we've had 3-4 windows that did not open or close properly. Window companies and local stores only wanted to sell me new windows. Then along came Bruce. He came to our house, looked at the windows, and said "no problem." He ordered the necessary parts, and came back to the house within a few days to make the repairs. The windows now glide like brand new. Throughout this transaction, Bruce was great. He was very prompt, respectful of our home, and his price was very fair. In addition, he fixed an interior door that wasn't aligned properly. I will highly recommend Bruce to anyone that wants to discuss his service and performance.

Vahe was extremely responsive to my post. I just moved here from Colorado and was looking for a Handyman to do several jobs. He was prompt, did an outstanding job for me. He has an eye for detail and was very precise. I gave him several more jobs to do in 2 weeks. I’m fortunate to have connected with him. Thank you Vahe

Ray was great! I needed a bed put together and Ray was able to do it same day. He showed up early. We didn't have the instructions anymore but we showed Ray a couple pictures and he did it perfectly. We already talked to Ray about some other projects around the house that we will be needing. Definitely recommend Ray for your handyman services!

I needed a lock changed out with a stripped screw and a closet shelf reinstalled; and I needed it done ASAP. Mark was great! He made himself available within a couple of hours, he was on time and completed the work efficiently and quickly. He was extremely respectiul, takng off hs shoes before entering my home and he even cleaned up after himself. He also went above and beyond installing a extra security measure for my safety incase of a break in which I really appreciated. I would definetly recommend Mark for any handyman work needed. He is a very competent and a super nice guy. Thank you for your help! Kirsten

Carlos is hands down the best brick repairman in the business. High quality work at affordable prices. He is quick to respond and always on time with his appointment. I will never use another brick mason again and if you are smart neither will you. Give him a call tell him Big Vee referred you. You have my word you won't be disappointed.

Geoff Davis is truly a godsend! I was searching for a handyman to help with repairs around my mother's home. . Other handyman services were truly price gouging her. In the past, we had horrible experiences with handymen doing terrible work costing us more to repair what they "fixed". We found Geoff Davis while searching for someone to repair my mother's patio cover which was damaged by the wind. Geoff was able to come up with a beautiful and creative way to repair the patio cover that was also affordable. After the repair of the patio cover, we had him paint her home, repair the rain gutters, repair the stucco walls and wrought iron fence, fix the shed door then he came to our place to repair the ceiling after a pipe leaked and replaced our hot water heater! His work is brilliant. He takes great pride in doing a job well done and treats you as if you were his family! With decades of experience as a private contractor, i truly believe there isn't anything he can't do! He is truly an answer to my prayers as knowing he is there to help my mother and to help us gives me huge peace of mind!

We needed (3) gates built and painted. We also asked Scott if he would consider building a pen and shelter for our African Sulcata Tortoise (as she had made her way through her existing pen). We were unable to find anyone willing to tackle this project. Scott was willing to take this on and provided a quote. We are very pleased with the new gates, the tortoise pen and the tortoise shelter. Scott is professional, well organized, talented, detail-oriented and dedicated to his craft. He arrived when he promised and the gates, pen and shelter are so well constructed that they will probably outlast us! We will definitely contact Scott when more work is needed and have already recommended him to our friends who need work (or any handyman work) done. Thank you very much Scott! We appreciate you!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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. Fore more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

How much does a handyman charge?

The national average rate for handyman jobs is $90-$160. A handyman performs general maintenance and repairs for residential and commercial properties. A handyman may charge a flat fee for standard services that take a predictable amount of time, such as installing a new appliance, as well as an hourly rate for larger projects such as digging out and replacing a rotted fence post. A cost-saving strategy when hiring a handyman is to bundle all the tasks you want them to do into one visit to make the most of any minimum service fee. Hourly rates for a handyman can average $50-$100 per hour. Pricing will depend on skill and experience required for the job, as well as regional labor rates. Here are a few examples of average handyman flat rates.

  • Attic ladder replacement: $150.
  • Toilet replacement: $75.
  • Ceiling fan and light fixtures: $75.
  • Faucet replacement: $125.
  • Garbage disposal: $75.

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.
