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!

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.

Before I selected moving forward with CJ's Handyman Services, Chris reached out to me understand my Pocket Door replacement project, clearly explained my options and his recommendations on how to best move forward and what it might cost. Chris is a fantastic communicator as we finalized our next steps and project start date. Chris completed the pocket door (and trim and drywall patches) within his estimated time period. The pocket door is perfect and we can open close it with our pinky finger. Excellent work quality!!

Matt is terrific. He showed up on time, finished on time, and his estimate was spot on. Not only that, but he's incredibly friendly and professional. I hired him to rehang the wooden gate of the fence in my front yard. It's a really old fence, and he was able to handle the job quickly. Thanks a lot, Matt. I would definitely recommend him for any handyman work.

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!

Clint was great! We originally contracted him to install four bike rack hooks - ended up installing five. He was really patient and provided great insight working with the confines of our cozy garage. He even ended up fixing our garage light, which wasn’t even on the list, but was driving me insane every day - so thankful he brought it up, it’s like he read my mind. :)

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.
