Marc does FANTASTIC work and for a very, very fair price. He's also been flexible with my schedule, which I deeply appreciate since I've been in the process of moving this months and it would have been very problematic for me to not have some of the work done when Marc did it. Marc is the first handyman we've ever hired, but he's been so great to work with that I already know I'll be requesting his services again and again and recommending him to all of my friends and colleagues. Thanks again, Marc! And we'll be sure to be back in touch soon!

Michael is a handyman, but a really good one. I would (and will) use him again. He strikes you as very honest and down to earth, knows how to get things done and besides, my dog LOVED him (not always a given with men).

Chris took care of the following for us: Mount tv to wall, hide all cords, attach an HDMI splitter, overall cord organization, get Netflix running on tv's. Chris was efficient, friendly, affordable, and experienced. He also provided some of the equipment to us at better rates and quality than we could have gotten at a store. Chris even found ways to save us time and money on the project. We are so happy with the work that he did for us, the tv looks and operates great. We will be calling him for any and all of our electrical/handyman needs in the future.

Highly recommend. Quality was outstanding. The new fixture I purchased was smaller than the old one so i expected to have to do more painting but however he did it it looks great. Excellent price. Excellent care for my home (clean, etc). And so nice to have a handyman and not a salesman!

Chris was terrific! He was punctual in contacting me and coming by both to give an estimate and start the work. He did a fantastic job of explaining in layman's terms how he thought the work should be approached and the options available to repair our fence. Chris is skilled, fair and trustworthy. I will be calling him to do any future fence and/or other handyman projects we need done.

One of the best service experiences I have ever had. Communication was extremely easy. Matt was so flexible and worked around our changing schedule to come over to put together a backyard trampoline and replace a faucet. He was prompt, professional and explained everything we needed to know. He even kindly answered every question from my kids who were fascinated by everything. Quote was extremely reasonable, and he offered to come back to look over all the work after some time to ensure everything was staying intact. I will be hiring Matt for any and all handyman or projects around the house.

I had Scott do some painting at my house and glad I did! He did my interior and did a great job paying close attention to detail. I also replaced a counter top that was a challenge but Scott was patient and handled it very professionally. Call Prime Handyman and rest easily!

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.
