Amin was reliable and conscientious in his communication and arrival. He did a number of projects, including patching plaster and replacing baseboards, fixing closet doors and a french door that was not closing. He was less successful with replacing dimmer switches in the kitchen but the handyman that subsequently replaced them explained that they were tricky as the original electrician that installed them did not properly identify the hot wire. Communication was tough at times but overall, Amin did a good job.

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 :)

Abel is great, he was so helpful with my kitchen project. He’s very professional, on time, friendly, knowledgeable, very responsive in communication, high quality work, and charges fairly. I highly recommend him for demo, junk removal hauling, and handyman services like cabinet installation and tile work.

TJ was wonderful. He put in a new sink faucet and two bathroom faucets for me. He also fixed our slider that wasn’t opening or closing any more. I always knew when he was coming and he was very responsive which is sometimes hard to find in a handyman. He thought outside the box to fix some problems that came up. I told him as he was leaving that he is my go to guy from now on!

Jim (Mobile Authority Handyman) is one of a dying breed. I mean he seems to take pride in doing a great job and giving good customer service. Actually, I was WOWED by his work ethics and his professionalism. Though this was my first experience in using his services, I do not feel any hesitation in recommending him to someone.

Tony did a wonderful job mounting my metal pegboard. He arrived promptly and had my project mounted securely to the wall in under 45 minutes. He was professional and courteous through out the installation process.The item happened to arrive with 6 screws and 6 wall anchors rather than the necessary 12 screws and 12 wall anchors. Tony was prepared and had extra screws and wall anchors in his tool kit, so it was not a problem. Should I have a need for a handyman in the future, I will give Tony a call!

This was my first experience with Thumbtack and Mark from Handy Panda Home Services made certain that it was a great one. I needed help with a kitchen drawer that remained broken at my house for about three months. Finding a good and responsive handyman who knew how to fix it was especially difficult and nagging my husband to fix it was even more so. Mark, however, was able to repair it in less than an hour. He contacted me promptly after I posted on Thumbtack, told me he knew exactly what the problem was, gave me an estimate that was honest and more than reasonable and immediately scheduled a day and time with me. Within hours of confirming when he would come and repair the drawer, he purchased the part that was needed and texted me the estimate invoice of the agreed upon price for his services. So when he arrived, I knew exactly what to expect and how much I would have to pay. I am currently working on a list of additional repairs around my house that I need help with as he is very knowledgeable and seems to really enjoy working on these projects and helping people.

Larry did a great job. He arrived a few minutes early and worked hard and well. The Handyman work included several potential tasks and he accepted the tasks he could do well and declined a few he was uncomfortable with, which made for a very efficient and effective contribution. The job included a trip to Home Depot and his light fixture and other choices were excellent.

John did an amazing job hanging things up in my apartment... I’m so glad I went with him instead of attempting to hang everything myself! He hung my TVs, full length mirrors, shelves, curtain rods and several other heavy pictures/decor items. He’s very friendly and his recommendations on where to hang things were great. I didn’t feel like I had to oversee him to make sure items where hung in a good spot. I’m glad I now have a handyman I can trust whenever I have a project I need help with!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

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.

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.

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.
