Best handyman to date. Originally I called Kevin to change my shower head but by the time he arrived I had a short list of things that I needed help with. Not only did Kevin take care of all my shower but he also completed my list walked me through the the process so in the future I can do it myself. Kevin is very pleasant, and knowledgeable and I would recommend his outstanding service.

I needed door bolts installed into my doors. The cuts in the doors where measure out correctly and placed perfectly. The latch on the opposite door was perfectly positioned and the door latches in a perfect fit. Harp is punctual and professional. He introduces himself, gets to work quickly. He is meticulous about getting the woodwork perfect and astheticallly pleasing to the eye. Unlike every other handyman I called, Harp answers the phone or will call back within an hour or two. He is available, even into the late hours of the evening. He was available to help me with a 24-48 hour notice. Every other handyman I called either didn't return the call, called back several days later or just outright not available for several weeks out. His prices are reasonable. He will give you an estimate prior to the job and will keep that promised price even if the job becomes difficult. He is also generous. Although he was hired to install doorbolts, he fixed a problem that I had with my door knobs just because he wanted everything to look uniform. Harp is available for work, professional, and does really good work. I will be hiring him again.

Fixed my fence faster than expected and looks good. Very responsive to messages and payment was also easy through Zelle. One small issue was that they did not do enough cleaning and shards of wood were left on the grass, which isn't safe for kids.

I recently used Hairston to help with the assembly of an Ikea bed. We had scheduled an appt for 5 pm as delivery was supposed to be between 1 and 5. Ikea ended up delivering the item at 11 am. I contacted Hairston about possibly moving our time up. He responded quickly and fortunately he was able to come earlier. He was on time and did a wonderful job assembling the bed in a timely manner. He picked up after himself, and left the area as clean as it was when he got there. I highly recommend Hairston, and will definitely be using him again in the future for our handyman needs!

I appreciate his diligence and integrity! He installed new laundry room cabinets and worked on a minor cabinet door alignment issue until I was satisfied. Installed a new toilet, bathroom vanity light and a 16 lb. dining room flush-mount light. When I had a issue with the new toilet he corrected it immediately. He's now my go-to handyman and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a handyman!

Marquis did an outstanding job moving my kids sofa, dining table and assembling bed, desk and other items. He was patient and spent extra hours when the bed needed additional unexpected assembly work. He’s on my top handyman list now!

Alfonso was patient with us while we took our time deciding on the what/when and where of the details! He honored the price (despite the difficult request to only have 1 switch!) He was timely, professional and fair in pricing. I'd highly recommend him and will call him again for our next electrical/wiring need

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

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.

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.

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.
