Zarif did a great job. We had a unique TV mount that required assembly and can be pulled down and twisted. I highly recommend him as he was most economical and professional handyman. He ended up spending more than 3 hrs due to the complexity of job without any complaints.

We were very pleased with this service. He was responsive, punctual and courteous. He was able to handle a wide range of tasks around our house..The best part was that there within 24 hours. Will definitely be using them again. The long- We needed to have a number of items taken care of after the purchase of our new condo, and after several days of research I decided to reach out to A Good Handyman and one other handyman service for quotes. I heard back from Candace at A Good Handyman in less than 24 hours, and I never ended up getting a reply from the other service so I went with AGH.

I had plumbing work done by J.R. Electrical and handyman services. They were courteous and professional. They did the work in a timely manner and at a fraction of the cost of a big plumbing company. I will definitely be using them again

We needed some electrical and lighting repairs. Doug arrived on time and stayed in communication through out the process. He is knowledgeable and was able to meet our needs. Additionally, worked on several 'handyman' projects that we were also needing. Would very much use Doug and DMN Electrical in the future.

Jerry Reyes does fantastic work. He has completed three projects for us and we have plans for two more. His work is complete, finished, and done extremely well. He has mastered many trades and does each one with tremendous skill. I highly value his work and will continue to utilize his services in the future. If you value a job well done, then do not hesitate to call on Jerry Reyes of Pro Handyman. Call Jerry for plumbing, electrical and carpentry and any other household repairs. If the rating system allowed it, I would give Pro Handyman services a 10 star review. Superior work at a very affordable price.

Tim is a very pleasant gentleman to work with. I'm sure my job was a lot more than he expected, because the price quoted was much less than I thought it would be. He never said anything about an increase, as I expected, hiring someone online. The job was definitely done to my expectation and I've already scheduled more work for Tim. I found my new handyman! Thank you again, I'm the happy camper :)

Shawn did a great job under pressure when me and my fiancé moved into a house that was not taken care of by its owner. We almost broke the lease until Shawn found an inexpensive way to make the house look good again. He said he could finish it in two days and he did. I will be using Shawn as my go to handyman for anything that might come up in the future.

Ercan is very reliable and has a wide range of skills for handyman work. He came to my house and assessed what needed to be done and then went to Lowe’s to buy the things needed on the same day. I would highly recommend him for his service, work and reliability. Plus, he is very reasonable when it comes to price.

I hired Thomas to patch up the wall around my baseboards, fireplace, and a spot on our ceiling. He was very communicative and organized. He left my house cleaner than any contractor I've ever hired. First one I didn't clean up behind after he left. I recommend him.

I recently moved to Beverly Hills and bought a beautiful antique bed frame. The only problem with the bed frame was the open space underneath it. I have a beautiful little Bengal kitten that would have loved to have crawled under my bed and hid all day long. I considered purchasing a brand new bed frame that extended all the way to the floor to prevent my kitten from running under the bed, but thought perhaps an experienced carpenter could match the wood on the frame exactly and extend it all the way to the floor. I decided to place an ad on Thumbtack and Ricky responded to my request immediately. He did an incredible job. He responded to my request right away, offered an unbelievably inexpensive quote, and offered to come over as soon as possible to resolve the problem. He did such a wonderful job from start to finish - he not only matched the wood perfectly but made the installation seamless with the rest of my bed, which I thought would be nearly possible with an antique. I cannot emphasize what a fabulous job he did - I highly recommend him.

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.
