Since first finding Tom on Thumbtack - he had helped me with a handful of projects ranging from dresser assembly to installing kitchen pendant lights, ceiling fans and most recently - building a Barbie dream house for my girls Xmas! He has consistently shown accountability, professionalism and fantastic work quality. I would highly recommend him for any Handyman needs!

My husband and I planned a very assorted list of repairs that included painting, planting plants, electrical work and design of a flagstone path around an existing path that needed to blend in as nearly as possible. They showed up (Yeah!) on time (imagine that!) and worked vigorously through the list, coordinating each effort in a priority that suited my needs. This is the second time we have used this service, and their skill set and my demands, were exceeded. They shopped for my materials and cleaned up after themselves everyday. They were cheerful, very polite and were intent on making us happy. They truly seemed to enjoy working together and always asked questions to assure they were on the right track. I will not stop using the Unstoppable Handyman, and will continue to call them for future work because of their work efforts and their versatility.

We needed our yard cleaned so we decided to find out what kinds of services would fit our needs. That's when we came across Sufficient Home Improvement. Justin Frost the owner of Sufficient Home Improvement was the one who came out to do the work. Which is great to see a boss who's not afraid to get his hands dirty too. He was very courteous and did an excellent job cleaning up our yard. He was very professional and when he was done he made sure to show me everything he had done to make sure that I was satisfied with his work before he left. I would recommend Sufficient Home Improvement to anyone that needs a handyman.

Leo was exceptional, I had 2 other handyman come and they couldn't fix my faucet but Leo kept pursuing and figured out a way to fix it. He stayed longer than expected but made sure the job got done and didn't charge me extra. I would hire him again for future jobs no question.

As a handyman, Dave is right on. He is versatile and knows what he is doing. If he doesn't, he figures it out given his innate ability to problem solve. His work is clean and he works efficiently. I will recommend Dave to my friends and family. Also, he is timely. When he says he'll be there, he is there. And if not, he will call. Larry National City.

Don Bill was my handyman in Hawaii for an under equipped house both electircally & plumbing wise that had been hit by a tidal wave so had systems that were constantly breaking down. He was a genius at creating ways to keep systems going with minimal expense. I called him the bobby-pin, duct tape, gum king of repairs. Sincerely, Cathrine Grace

We found our handyman! He did an excellent job completing the tasks we have for him- even provided an affordable solution to a home aesthetic issue we have since we bought our house. Awesome multi-tasker, he knew how to prioritize work such that he did work that would take longest time first and was able to complete other tasks concurrently. Stephanie is very responsive and coordinated the project well.

Russell did an awesome job mounting our outdoor shutters! He was on time, easy to communicate with, and left our house how he found it, meaning he cleaned up afterwards. I’ve already had him look at some other jobs to do in our house. Consider Russell for any of you handyman jobs!

Peter did a great job that was well worth the money. He was friendly, asked plenty of questions prior to beginning work, and got the job done right. He’s the type of handyman I’d trust even if I wasn’t around while he was working. I’ll definitely be hiring Peter in the future and highly recommend him for any and all projects in San Diego.

I will be calling on Matt from now on for any tasks that need a contractor, handyman, or jack-of-all-trades! He is ultra responsive and his rates are extremely reasonable - especially considering the excellent skills he brings to the task and his “let’s get this done” work ethic. Matt is professional, courteous, very conscientious yet flexible: so easy to work with! He responded to my handyman request within minutes of my posting it. We worked out details at that time, he accepted the job and he had everything completeed at my home 36 hours later! While working steadily, quickly and effectively, he still took the time to involve me in “design” or “installation” decisions when there were options - something I really appreciated. He’s a great person; left the work areas clean and tidy and left me feeling I’d found a great resource!

I moved to San Diego about 4 years ago after buying a fixer, and that's when I met Alejandro. Alejandro can pretty much do everything. He has decades of experience with building homes from the ground up. Whether it's tile, electrical work, plumbing, stucco, drywall, painting, custom cabinets, landscaping, fencing, driveways. .you name it! And he does them all REALLY well with professionalism. And he knows city codes and can provide you with architectural design ideas and drawings. He communicates well, is jovial, and most importantly trustworthy. Also, he respects your house and is understanding of deadlines. He is definitely my go-to when I need work done on my property.

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.
