Marc has been wonderful to work with. He is patient, and takes his time on every job, doing the job correctly and with significant conscientiousness. He did not hesitate to inform me of any concerns or issues with each job. I had 50 cabinet pulls to put on new construction cabinets, many of which had been handmade and were inconsistent. Marc took extra time and care to make sure that every pull was level and consistent on my cabinets. I will use Marc for every household handyman need from now on.

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!

I cant say enough! I'm a landlord so I deal with many different contractors. I came across Keith through Thumbtack to do a general handyman door repair. I couldn't be happier with the work he performed and the quickness of his communication. I highly recommend Keith

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.

We hired Gil to do a variety of handyman services (flooring repair, shower door and appliance installation, updating fixtures, blinds installation, etc.) and he did a great job with everything that we were looking for. He also was very accommodating and flexible with his time which made it easier on us to schedule during our time off. We will definitely reach out to Gil in the future if/when we have additional projects to complete.

I had three exterior doors replaced, one with a cat flap installed in the new door. LeRoy and his assistant were very friendly and knowledgeable in the work. There ended up being some unexpected challenges, which they were able to figure out without an issue. The job took a little longer than any of us expected, but LeRoy stuck with his initial quote amount and worked tirelessly until it was all complete. I am keeping his contact info for future handyman jobs.

Shawn is a pleasant, competent professional. He tackled my repair job with a quick, thorough assessment. He had everything with him that he needed to do the repairs efficiently and effectively. He organized his work and never missed a beat until he was done. And, he was willing to take up another related job right afterward, completing it quickly. His rates are competitive in Denver's overheated handyman world. And Shawn did all this with a smile and with respect for his customer. I will definitely have him at the top of my list to call the next time.

TC cares about getting the job done right the first time. He helped correct a shoddy job from a previous handyman, but also did a great job on the original task (perfectly centered my TV mount), all while being friendly and easy to communicate with. He goes over and beyond. Thanks - look forward to hiring you again in the future.

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.

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.
