I received a fast and fair quote for the repairs I needed. John came out to my home to replace faulty pluming in my shower and to replace my leaking garbage disposal. He was on time, very pleasant, and completed the job with expert skill. I have already hired Unstoppable Handyman Services to do more work at my house and I plan on referring them to my family and friends who have homes to take care of their handyman needs.

Leo is awesome! He was very responsive, kept me up to date on his availability, arrived on time, and completed the job as promised. His work quality is very high and I couldn't be happier with the installation. I highly recommend Leo for TV Installation or other electrical repairs throughout your home.

What a great guy! Polite, honest, reliable, proficient and completely a pleasure to work with. And, more reasonably priced than most. John did some drywall repair and some other miscellaneous things. Then, hired him again for a few more projects and have given out his info to friends who need a handyman. I would definitely recommend John.

Jason was easy to communicate and work with. He was very responsive and able to commit to an appointment quickly. He arrived on time and completed the work exactly as we discussed for the same price he quoted. I would recommend him for any drywall repair project and would work with him again in the future if his services were required.

Thumbtact did the "Blind/Shade Repair" research for me and several companies contacted me and gave me a quote to repair my two sets of French door shades. I went with Todd Ashley of AB Blinds. Upon arrival Todd examined my two sets of French door shades and told me that only one set of French door shades needed repair. Todd completed the repair in less than an hour. The final price was obviously less than the quote. The shades work like new and I am very happy with the work that was done and the price I paid.

I own several properties in North America and I wish I could have Sunny Coast Manage all of them. Sunny Coast has been managing my SanDiego properties for over 5 years and have been doing a fantastic job. They take care of everything including managing repairs and services, tenant placememts, and paying property expencies. Their management fees are very reasonable. They are responsive and provide a high level of service. They also have a good eye for the right tenant. All my tenants were evaluated and qualified by Sunny Coast and each tenant has been great and headache free. Best of all they don't bother me....they take care of the issues quickly and efficiently on their own. Their accounting is extremely transparent and all property expencies and revenues can be found very easily online where it's updates regularly. You can filter different categories such as taxes, rent income, repairs, etc....they also upload scans/copies of services invoices and bills to your account. Very user friendly.

The stitching on my leather sofa was coming undone for years and looked awful. Expensive couch with high quality leather. Spent a couple years getting declined by other service providers saying they can't stitch it by hand. Albert was the 1st person to say, "no problem," and I am happy to say that he made a difficult job look easy. When other professionals service providers said, "no can do, sorry, good luck with that," Albert made it happen. Very impressed with his passion for his trade and his attention to detail. Polite, professional and went out of his way to accommodate my schedule. When he was done with the stitching, he even offered/suggested to get the padding and stuffing replaced in the cushions. He came back the next day and within a 24 hour period, I basically have a new couch that will last at least another ten years. Thanks Albert for doing business the way it should be done. This is a man who takes pride in his work.

Larry and John came out, provided a quote for the work - explained the work that needed to be completed - provided pictures of the problems they found with me roof. They were prepared to make the repair when they arrived and once I gave them the ok - the work was done thoroughly and professionally. Again they provided pictures of the entire process and then guaranteed if the problem reoccured they would come back - 100% guaranteed. Both men were pleasant, I never felt like they were going to try and force me to authorize work that wasn't necessary. I would call them again if I had any other roof issues!

I will be happy to refer him to anyone who needs some repairs or installations (in plumbing or construction...). Thank you, Jesus. Nguyen.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a general contractor?

When starting a home remodel or new construction project, you will probably hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to take a set of building plans and construct them as outlined. The general contractor may help perform the day-to-day building, or they may just hire workers and oversee all the work activities. In either case, the job of the general contractor is to see that your project gets built.

When you have a building project, ask for bids from various contractors. The bids tell you how much each will charge and what their scope of work will be. Once you have selected a bid, you sign a contract with that general contractor outlining the specifics of the project and the milestones during the project when they will receive payment installments. Once the contract is official, the general contractor will bring in their crew to begin construction. The contractor will manage the workers and subcontractors (anyone who doesn’t work directly for their company but that they need to outsource, like a marble installation pro), order all the materials, obtain work permits, and confirm that all the workers and subcontractors are completing their projects as planned. They typically handle all the payments to the workers and subcontractors, and send you invoice. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.  If you are organized and competent to oversee construction projects, and are able to make sure everything is being built properly and meeting code, it’s possible you can be your own general contractor.  

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

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.

Why is property management important?

A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.
