Chris and his helper did a fantastic job restoring my carpet. With my two 1 year old puppies my carpets got trashed during the last 3 months due to working extended hours. I did not expect them to look new again and was headed toward just replacing the carpets completely. Due to Revolution's restoration on my carpet I will not have to get new carpets, but can now wait until spring when I purchase another home. Thank you so much Chris - you did an awesome job and will not need to look for another carpet cleaner again. I highly recommend his work on any type of carpet stains and restoration.

I hired Aaron to come out and run an HDMI cord approximately 30' in the ceiling and walls. Aaron was knowledgeable and even gave advice on how I could upgrade my home theatre in the future. His prices were very fair and reasonable. I will definitely considering using Aaron and Masterpiece AV again.

If there was a 6th star option I would have chosen it. I had a huge hole in my closet from drywall being removed due to needed internal repair. Michael replaced the missing drywall and retextured it to perfection. The repair is seamless! I never expected such a beautiful job. I'm a Realtor and I now know I can refer my clients to Michael for their home repairs. I will stand by his work and I'll stake my professional reputation on it. I was extremely impressed. Nothing about his work could have been better. It was superb.

I needed a heavy storage cabinet hauled out of my home that required going down porch stairs. Kendall at first didn't think he could do it because it was just him, but he made a call to a friend, and they both came soon after my request and did the job!

I got three bids and VML was in the middle. What I liked was that they not only looked at the damaged gutter that I pointed out but also noticed that the downspout needed repair. Great attention to detail and easy to work with.

Could not be happier! Tim was so helpful with saving me with my one main issue but also ended up taking on so much more. I can't explain how relaxing it feels to have someone so knowledgeable and trustworthy in my home for any type of repair! I will be highly recommending Tim for many years to come.

Communicated the problem clearly. Offered multiple options to repair the old valve versus updating to a newer valve and completed the job the same day. Thank you for fixing my Mom’s home and treating her well! If you’re looking for a good plumber here you go!

I hired Bob from Handyman Professional Services to repair 28 ft of fence that had blown down. Bob was fast at responding to my post and quickly came to give a bid. He gave a very professional written bid and was in constant communication about the job. Him and his crew did a great job on the fence only took 2 days to complete.

Howard is very contentious and did a great job repairing the joists on our deck! He also recommended against a suggestion from the Home Inspector that the new joists be married up to the rotting joists. He said this would give you double the rotting joists! He replaced them instead and I really appreciated his suggestion and candor.

Gerry was great! Contacted me right away. Discussed my issue and was sympathic and caring. Came the same day to assess the water heater issue. Took the time to explain to me his thoughts and course of action. He took a part with him and returned the next day with the part repaired and he installed it and had it working in minimal time. He explained to me what was going on and was courteous and professional all the way.

I hired Allen home repair to inspect a sketchy looking breaker box on a home recently purchased. He was very thorough with his assessment and explained everything to put my mind to rest. I will be using him again as I continue to renovate the house and outbuilding.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
