Stephen was an excellent handyman in hanging a mirror that I was unable to hang myself. He got the job done quickly and efficiently and is also just overall a very nice man. I will definitely be contacting Stephen in the future for other mounting tasks.

Harp was great and professional. I had many small home repairs. I patched and paint my dry wall, mounted projector and two tvs. He mounted my Tv above the fireplace where another handyman failed to do so. He also installed my new shower and fixed my sink. I highly recommended him and want to work again with him.

I'm a real person, I work at a tech startup in SF, and just having moved to a new part of the city - didn't feel like assembling furniture AND having to unpack. I had some NON-IKEA, but similar, furniture that needed to be assembled. I had looked at some other popular task sites but they were showing me candidates that didn't exactly look "handyman-capable", and were conveniently charging ridiculous hourly rates. That's when I searched another local list and found Chao's post for "handyman services"; we easily negotiated a fair arrangement and he was able to come that SAME DAY. I was initially nervous waiting for him to arrive but when Chao showed up - I felt like I won the lottery. He brought his own tools and didn't want to waste time on small talk. THIS GUY IS SERIOUSLY A PROFESSIONAL HANDYMAN, & FURNITURE ASSEMBLY SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT. Within his first 5 minutes on site, He took that first furniture box with 1000 pieces and had methodically and systematically placed them in an orderly fashion and quickly began assembly -- paying strict accordance to instructions detail. WHEN CHAO WAS DONE, THERE WERE NO EXTRA OR MISSING PIECES!!! And, even though this furniture was "cheap", it was assembled as best as possible. Chao is an expert. I had some difficult space constraints that he had to work within but he just adapted. He had lots of tricks too, like unfolding the packaging box to protect my floor. Using a piece of cardboard to protect the furniture during hammer-assembly steps, etc... This guy is PROFESSIONAL and I highly recommend him.

Toby came today to help us with the plumbing problem that we were having. He was very helpful and very professional he did the job and was very reasonable I’m sure he save us a lot of money compared to most plumbers. He was very nice and I definitely think I would hire them back for more than just plumbing work I think I got myself a new handyman to come help us with things that we need to get done around this house.

Matt is awesome! Super personable and does great work! He follows his word and can make your vision a reality. I showed him some pictures of a wedding altar I wanted to build (in order to hold vintage doors) and he executed exactly what I was looking for! I will definitely have Matt back for my next project! I highly recommend you hiring Matt for any handyman or carpentry needs.

Byron really did amazing work! He gave me the most competitive quote which was a flat rate which I really appreciate. He was willing to come in early morning and arrived on time. He went to get a new part and didn’t even ask to increase the fee. At the end of the job he tested to see whether the pipe was sealed. And he was very attentive to clean up. I will definitely use him again if I have another plumbing issue.

We hired Howard to wall mount a bathroom cabinet as well as a few miscellaneous items around our home. He showed up on time and well-prepared with his own tools. He was polite and respectful and made sure to ask exactly where and how we wanted the items mounted. He made quick work of the tasks and was out in a jiffy. We would definitely hire him again for any sort of handyman type work! Thanks, Howard!

C plumbing was great! It took a couple tries to find a coordinating time for C to come install a kitchen faucet and soap dispenser due to my hectic work schedule but Cam was patient and accommodating. When we finally settled on a time, he and his partner showed up on time, and we're quick, efficient, and friendly. Our new kitchen faucet is exactly what we wanted and would recommend C plumbing for any plumbing jobs.

My first try at Thumbtack so I was a little nervous and unsure what to expect. But I couldn’t be happier with Mr. Gutierrez who was responsive to my request, professional, reliable, and an absolute expert electrician. He worked quickly, had all of the necessary equipment and tools, and was extremely courteous and pleasant. He kept everything clean and tidy and that was important in my bedroom. I have +100% confidence in Mr. Gutierrez!

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.
