He was prompt, professional and did a nice job. He cleaned everything up when he was done. I would have liked if he could have done the finish work. I thought he was going to repair the drywall and then paint the area. He told us he only does the drywall. We still need to paint the area or hire someone to do that.

I had problems finding an electrician that wasn’t booked for 2 months for our project. I went to Thumbtack and within 30 minutes PKS responded with a quote. PKS was able to get our project completed within 2 days and were prompt each morning. Project included a 100 Amp sub panel for the garage, 30 amp rv plug, 7 outlets and a 8’ led shop light. Everything looks professional. One last comment, the price. PKS was much lower than the quotes I was getting and those didn’t include outlets or lights. Thanks PKS!

He proceeded with repairs and needed replacement parts and finished the job as agreed upon with regards to price and in a timely fashion.

Pedros house painting

Very good communication with Pedros, on time and quick to respond always. Starting out first day power washer broke, no work that day. After that seemed like the project (painting exterior) was in a bit of a hurry, as expected. Painting got done by Pedro and his helper. When clean up touch up and walk through came, Pedro's helper went to Russia for two weeks leaving Pedro alone with no other helper. I had changed a color on a couple doors so Pedro had to make time to get that done hurriedly so some minor areas were overlooked (he had to go to another job). I understand that this is a hard business to find employees. This is not a team of workers. I did appreciate Pedros expertise in recognizing dry rot and repair.

Thumbtack, once again, sent me Angels in disguise!! Sam was true to his quote. He came out on a Saturday and realized this repair needed to be done ASAP. He and Nick gave up their Sunday, longer than they had anticipated, but stayed until completed. Very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. I would, and will, recommend Sam. I will keep his card handy. Thank you Sam and Nick...AND THANKS to your family for letting me have your Sunday!!! -Sharon

Ken was absolutely amazing. He came out promptly to fix my plumbing issues. He was very honest and straight forward with the work that needed to be done. He is very knowledgeable in his field and he has extremely competitive prices and won't stop until the work is done. He worked into the night to make sure my problem was fixed the right way the first time. Great company and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing repairs.

Ref from Sacramento Electric drove out to my home in Davis from Carmichael to evaluate a concern that was identified when I had solar PV installed at my home earlier this year. The solar installers had noted a burn mark in the back of the electrical panel box that could indicate an arcing event. After visually evaluating the condition in the box and of the other circuits and wiring, Ref determined that a repair was not warranted and things appeared to be in good condition. I sincerely appreciated Refs honesty with respect to whether a repair was needed, and while he didn't request or require it, I reimbursed him a trip charge for his efforts. Ref was very personable and professional and a pleasure to work with. Thank you Sacramento Electric.

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.
