Excellent service at an excellent price. I could not be happier. The fast repair saved me from a $1200 repair suggested by another plumber! It is nice to have a quick, professional, plumber that I can trust for future work.

I would recommend Obsolete Tile & Roofing highly to anyone needing roof repair. Francisco showed up when he said he was going to and did the job at the price that was quoted. I would refer him to friends and neighbors and will not hesitate to call him again if I need work done on my roof at a fair price.

Mike was very responsive and called me within minutes after I entered my information at Thumbtack.com. He quoted me a price that was over $200 less than a big plumbing company. I hired Mike and he was very helpful and focused on my issue. He was on time and did the repair within 45 minutes. I am very satisfied with the work that Mike did for me and I would highly recommend him for any plumbing meet.

Johnathon gave a fair quote and arrived on time to do the work. He got the work done quickly while still paying attention to detail. He was able to fit us in or his schedule quickly to help with a leaky bathtub faucet and completely replace all the fixtures in the tub and shower. He was able to replace the valve without needing any tile repair. And all with a two year warranty. We would definately use him again for any plumbing needs we have.

James repaired two holes in our walls where an old security system had been and some plaster on our ceiling that was peeling from water damage. He gave us a MUCH better price than the three other bids that I received. So much better that I wasn't sure he fully understood the job. But, after seeing the damage, he was confident he could fix it easily. He did a great job-you can't even tell anything was ever wrong! James was very pleasant and easy to work with and I could tell that he is a very honest person. He even told us how we could fix it ourselves if we wanted to. I'm glad we had him do it though because it turned out beautifully. We will definitely call BKC painting for any future painting projects.

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.

Do not hesitate, this company is honorable. Jose arrived on time as scheduled. He came and fixed the connection to my deck awning, replaced a broken outlet and did several other repairs for a fair price. He is smart, very skilled and a true professional. Another electrician from Thumbtak worked here prior, charged me for 4 hours and couldn’t even fix what Jose fixed in 30 minutes!!! He is the only electrician I will hire from now on because he knows what he’s doing, plus he’s very polite and sweet.

I hired Scott this week to do some interior painting and help repair some drywall holes from tenants I had in a rental property. Scott was very efficient with his time and did a great job with the repairs and painting. I will definitely be keeping Scott's number for future painting needs and highly recommend his services.

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.
