Tom is a fantastic handyman. He showed up on time, was prepared for the job, and knew exactly how to get the task done. Most importantly, he was incredibly friendly. Will most definitely hire him again. Thanks, Tom! The whiteboards look great.

Amin was reliable and conscientious in his communication and arrival. He did a number of projects, including patching plaster and replacing baseboards, fixing closet doors and a french door that was not closing. He was less successful with replacing dimmer switches in the kitchen but the handyman that subsequently replaced them explained that they were tricky as the original electrician that installed them did not properly identify the hot wire. Communication was tough at times but overall, Amin did a good job.

WOW! Totally exceeded expectations! On-time, charged me EXACTLY as promised and the work was so good that I keep pinching myself that finally I’ve found a handyman and electrical/plumbing service I can trust! I realize this may sound like I know these guys but I just found them on Thumbtack on a whim and I’m now in disbelief that—after YEARS of being BURNED by incompetent, unethical, tardy or just “meh” service persons in various handyman type jobs—there does indeed exist a company that gets it RIGHT. “But wait, there’s more!” I liked so much the before-hand clear communication and the fair pricing, NO GAMES approach to cost as I was booking services, that I scheduled them to also clean my windows (they were more nit-picky that I am! They cleaned my skylight!) and a car wash: LISTEN PEOPLE: I watched them, unbidden by me, WIPING DOWN MY ENTIRE FRONT GRILL DRY, nook-by-tiny-nook in my brand new KIA Stinger (just google that history-in-the-making car to understand why it DEMANDS to be babied!) Never in my life have I had a better car wash! And they came to me?! Here is what I paid (I tipped 15% on top of what I wax charged, pricing below was what I was quoted and charged): $49 Fixed my garbage disposal $49 Fixed my broken heater $6-$8 per window (I don’t have grids) $40 car wash (3 people worked on it!) These gals and guys DESERVE to succeed! Finally somebody determined to keep their word! WAAAAY OVERDELIVERED on their promise! BRAVI to everyone who evidently cares so deeply to hire such professional, NICE, communicative, COMPETENT staff with a can-do attitude! GRAMERCY OC Consierge! Will be using you for everything I need from now on!

This is my 2nd time working with John. During the process of our recent home purchase and its renovation, we've met many contractors & handyman in Orange County but it's very rare to meet a handyman/contractor like John. It was not just his great valued service but his exceptional professionalism & honesty that we were mostly impressed with. Regardless of the work size, he always tries to help you, which is rare quality to have, especially here in this Orange County. We definitely hire John again!

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.
