I'm not sure where to begin...I hired Larry to assemble a gazebo that I thought would take a day or two to put together. Unfortunately, it was a much bigger project than he and/or I anticipated. It took several days to complete the project and rather than complaining about the extra time he was going to have to commit to the project, he continued to show up every day on time, with a smile on his face and ready to work. I could not be any happier with the end result. The gazebo has been put together absolutely perfectly. I now plan to hire Larry for all of the other things that need to get done around my house. If you need a handyman, he's your guy!

Nick is worth his weight in gold. He painted my kitchen but also did some other jobs for me. He is also quite the handyman, carpenter, trouble shooter and he is proficient in his job. I would definitely hire him again.

Brian did a great job on our project. He restored our deck and even power washed some items that really needed it which was above and beyond what we had asked of him. He also cleaned an area behind our walls that had been infested with rodents. He did an extensive assessment and even guided us to areas we hadn't realized had been affected. He really goes above the standard of the work request and works hard to make sure we were satisfied. We are lucky we found him as he was able to complete the job in a timely manner and stay within our budget. We will definitely be calling on Brian to complete any future handyman projects around the home. He is reliable, professional, responded to the original post quickly, and extremely knowledgeable in his work. Thanks Brian!

I recently hired Albert to repair the fence on my rental property in SF due to storm damage. He was prompt & courteous and attentive to my needs as a remote landlord. He gave me a fair estimate and sent pictures of the damage and explained the scope of the repair involved. After approval of the proposal, he executed the work in a timely matter and kept me updated on the progress & worked well with my tenant. Within 2 weeks, another storm caused some further damage to the property and he came promptly and repaired the problem, saving me hundred of dollars in the process. After 2 wonderful experiences, I employed him again to repair some lock and door knob issues that recently occurred as well. I would highly recommend him for any handyman services you might require as he is both honest, co-operative, punctual and trustworthy.

    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.

    • Details
      I've been living in my apartment for about 3 years now and it's starting to show bits of wear and tear. The entire place is wooden flooring with flat, slightly mottled white walls. There are a number of small things that need attention: * Replacing a chandelier-style light with something more sane so I stop banging my head into it * Filling a few old screw holes. One has some hammer damage around it * Help me route my audio and power cables properly, they're a bit of a mess at the moment * Some of the walls have scuff marks on them, I'd like to make them pristine again. These patches are small and fairly sporadic * There's a broken tile near one of the exit doors (a corner just broke off). I'm hoping there's some way to stick it back together or otherwise improve its safety and appearance * I'd like to paint one of the walls in my office with Idea paint (it's a whiteboard-style paint that works with dry-erase pens). Getting the application right with this stuff makes all the difference and I've seen it go right and wrong so bonus points if someone have experience in doing this before. The wall is about 100 sq ft. I'd like to learn how to do these things for myself so if I can competently help I will...
