"I had a power outage in Denver, Colorado that blittzed the pilot light igniter wire on my hot water heater. The wire was worn out and frayed as well. I'm a renter, and didn't couldnt get in contact with my landowner. I posted on Thumbtack and Frank from NexPlateau called me within an hour. He asked me to take pictures, and then identified a part and drove to 3 places to find it. Since it is winter, and I'm disabled, Frank went the extra mile and came afterhours with the part. It turned out we also needed another part inside the water heater, and so he had to go out the next day and find it, at a store about 50 miles from my house, in the middle of jobs he had already scheduled before mine. By the time he was able to come over, it was late, so we decided he'd come back the next morning and install it. With all his drive time and research and repair work, I was afraid that it was going to be a very expensive job in the long run. Frank was concerned for my health and safety, and treated my job like an emergency, without charging me nearly the amount other contractors on Thumbtack bid, and within a time frame that was reasonable and realistic. Even though I was without hot water for a couple days, it would have been a week had I gone with any of the other options I had. Thanks Frank! For pushing through, working me into your already booked schedule, and doing a great job at a very fair price. I will be calling NexPlateau for any handyman and repair needs from now on. They are the best I've seen in the Denver area, and I know they cover many other parts of Colorado."

"Several days of continual rain had served to reveal a flaw in the roof of my garage. Cross-members were soaked and dripping, raising concerns that structural damage, mold, and other problems would soon follow. Of the several contractors I contacted on Thumbtack, most could not be bothered even to reply. Those that did kindly informed me that what I needed was "out of the scope" of the services they provided. (Nevermind that they were listed under the topic of the very services I sought.) John answered my call and responded THE SAME DAY. He was thoroughly sensitive to my concerns and, upon his arrival, took immediate measures to prevent further damage. Because the nature of the repair was such that it could be done only amid dry conditions, John returned upon the cessation of the rain to complete the work. He had assessed the problem and immediately knew not only what to do, but how best to do it. John did not cut corners. He was thorough and did a fantastic job. Further, he did not stop until the job was DONE. Equally impressive is the fact that, upon completion, he followed up, asking if I had experienced any further problems. In a day and age in which honest work ethics and genuine competence are in short supply, it is a genuine pleasure to find a contractor by whose honesty and integrity one finds one’s faith restored. I found John to be a good-natured and highly considerate individual. He has earned my respect and trust. I will not hesitate to call him again."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

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.

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.
