Mr. Moreno was really really good. He knows his stuff. Very professional and very thorough. He cleaned up after himself which a lot of workers don't do and I like that. My satisfaction was guaranteed. I would definitely recommend him to my neighbors and I would definitely hire him again.

I had a projector installed but the tech that came out said that the covering of the wires were not included and that he would come back. He never did. So I spoke to a few techs on Thumbtack and I found Mark to be the most knowledgeable. He asked the right questions and was in constant communication with me. He came out within a few hours after we spoke and provided me with a receipt for the parts and labor we agreed to ahead of time. Thinking that it would only take an hour (in my mind) to complete Mark spent over 2 hours but never requested more than what we agreed to. He was very professional and thorough and we were very pleased with the outcome. We paid him double what we agreed as he deserved it. Highly recommend him!

He was very detailed and did whatever was needed to get the job done properly, which was unfortunately a mess left by a previous worker. It was far more involved than initially appeared but David Barraclough stuck with his initial estimate given to me even though it took extra time and labor. Very nice, prompt and not afraid of work!!!

Steve had to rip out an old dry rotted, 36 inch, 12 steps, outdoor stair case, and replace it with a code approved version, including a third stringer, appropriate railings and hand rail. He bid the project fairly with detailed accounting of labor and materials (shared receipts and his schedule), arrived on time prepared and ready as promised, communicated clearly and quickly on each phase of the project, respected/worked with my concerns and feedback, and completed a beautiful staircase that even the inspector admired for exact cuts and sturdy, safe, attractive construction! Steve is a young man of integrity, intelligence, professionalism, and skill, a joy to hire with a well-earned five star rating!

LA Best Handyman Services showed up on time to give me an estimate to replace steps in my garage. The cost for materials and labor was reasonable. The technician arrived on time. This is the second time I have used the service of LA Best Handyman Services . Both times I was satisfied. I would recommend them to aid anyone who is interested in a project pertaining to home improvement.

I called Steve about a dishwasher install and he walked me through the process of taking the existing dishwasher from the laundry room and putting it in the kitchen next to the kitchen sink. Not only was the job more labor intensive then originally thought, but also required several additional parts. Steve showed up on time and he already had the parts needed. the final cost was about $50.00 more than the original estimate of $150 but given the additional time and parts needed it was more than fair. Steve was great got the dishwasher in and working without any leaks in no time I highly recommend him

Fantastic experience! He actually listened to what I wanted, even though it was totally out of left field. If you need someone who can think outside the box and isn't afraid to be creative then Jose is your guy! I am already making a list of other projects I want him to tackle. He is prompt, courteous, fair, reasonably priced and does quality work. Plus, he completed the job the same day he came out to look at my project. Thanks Jose!!!

This was a fence installation and repair job. Chris responded very quickly to the service request. Although he showed up on time Chris was polite and professional. He fixed the broken door handle in 30 minutes. Charged the 3-hour minimum labor fee (perfectly reasonable) and left an itemized receipt and his business card. Will use Chris Handyman & Cleaning LA 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.

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.
