I needed same-day service and Sheila and her crew responded very quickly. When they were delayed by a half hour, she texted to tell me -- much appreciated. They faced a daunting task in cleaning the home of a heavy smoker. While a few small things were overlooked (such as the front entryway light), the cleaning was very thorough. I would definitely recommend them.

He was prompt, professional and did a nice job. He cleaned everything up when he was done. I would have liked if he could have done the finish work. I thought he was going to repair the drywall and then paint the area. He told us he only does the drywall. We still need to paint the area or hire someone to do that.

Very good communication with Pedros, on time and quick to respond always. Starting out first day power washer broke, no work that day. After that seemed like the project (painting exterior) was in a bit of a hurry, as expected. Painting got done by Pedro and his helper. When clean up touch up and walk through came, Pedro's helper went to Russia for two weeks leaving Pedro alone with no other helper. I had changed a color on a couple doors so Pedro had to make time to get that done hurriedly so some minor areas were overlooked (he had to go to another job). I understand that this is a hard business to find employees. This is not a team of workers. I did appreciate Pedros expertise in recognizing dry rot and repair.

Ken was absolutely amazing. He came out promptly to fix my plumbing issues. He was very honest and straight forward with the work that needed to be done. He is very knowledgeable in his field and he has extremely competitive prices and won't stop until the work is done. He worked into the night to make sure my problem was fixed the right way the first time. Great company and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing repairs.

I wasn't able to be there, but my roommate was there to supervise the repair. He repaired my pocket door, repainted everything, and all for a very nominal fee and extremely quick. He was even able to use my existing hardware, and didn't put anything in he didn't need to have! I picked him, eventhough his rates were higher then other quotes I received, but I thoroughly was impressed with his professional response, and a detailed background on how long he has been doing handyman work. I would recommend him anytime, and will definitely use his services again. Remember folks, you get what you pay for!

Better than I ever could have expected since I had no prior experience with this contractor. I looked them up on the internet and saw they we're licensed and bonded. That's a must for me. But above all that, Kevin the electrician was on time, professional, courteous, clean, knowledgeable in his craft and successfully completed all the diagnostics and repairs in an acceptable amount of time. Kevin also cleaned up each of several work areas and the billing process was painless. The hourly rate was fair market. I give a 5 star and for me, that is very rare. Thank you Kevin and Burnhart Electric.

Mr Carruth is a very personable and honest person. He delivered everything he promised and more. I really appreciated the fact that he explained everything he recommended with detail and not just give me a list of parts and prices. He is very knowledgeable in his field and I felt very comfortable in asking questions. He took his time with me and gave me everything needed to make my decision. The fact that even though he had personal commitments during the time that we needed help AND he gave up his holiday to make sure that my 85 year old dad could have air conditioning has made us a customer for life!! Carruth Home Solutions is the BEST!!!

Christopher actually arrived a little earlier than scheduled...A nice surprise. He assessed the problem and was able to repair it quickly and with obvious expertise. He even insisted on cleaning up the small amount of debris left over from his work. He offered good advice on a future electrical project that I am considering.

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.
