Eddie completed a small plumbing repair and was very fast to respond and fit the job in quickly. The work was completed to a high standard. The only negative was that the price was much higher than others I have previously used. Because he was able to fit the job in quickly, Eddie earned the business, but I would likely pursue another less expensive route were the lead time to exist.

I contacted Shane on two pex pipe joints leaking. Shane responded back right away & was very informative in regards to discussed repair & costs. An appointment was arranged and repairs were made today. I am very satisfied with repairs made by Shane and his assistant Jose. They are down to earth people, that to be in the same room with is as if you would know them all your life.I recommend Right Choice to everyone in need of their repair services. Thanks Shane, looking forward to hiring you again on future projects.

Don was very knowledgeable on what needed to be done on the 2 windows in my room & the living room. The job he did was perfect I am so pleased with the end result you can't tell where all the damage was done after he finished the work. The price he charge was way below what I thought I would have to pay for the repairs! He always cleaned up after he finished doing something. I would highly recommend him on his work he has done. Very professional work ethics!!!

Couldn't have been a better person to deal with. Brian came right out, gave me an estimate and was back the next morning with parts to repair the shower faucet. Better than fair on his prices with no markup on parts. Patient, pleasant, and respectful. We plan on hiring him again for other repairs/projects.

For U Builders recently completed a complete vinyl siding job and wrapping all the trim. This was a big job and there was a fair amount of trim that needed to be repaired due to rot. They entire crew did an excellent job. John, Brandon, Leon and Alex were all great to work with and I couldn't be happier with their work and professionalism. Their pricing was excellent and I would highly recommend them for your project.

I wish there were more than 5 stars to reward Bob for the incredible work he did for me recently. I waited for several months after moving into a new home to find the right person to hang my wall art and shelves. I have and OCD eye---and the slightest mis-alignment on a wall would make me crazy! Bob did an outstanding job-- and some of the pieces were difficult to hang. He stayed the course---following my direction to the letter. He took initiative to make suggestions, and I loved his creativity. In the end it was a collaboration. He was tidy with his tools and cleaned up after the job was done. I will hire him again and again. Courteous, pleasant, polite---and respectful of my home.

I did not have water and knew not a thing about wells or how a well works to get you water. In a panic, I googled well repair and 4 names came up within my area. E. Garrity Water was at my home within an hour after contacting me. They diagnosed the problem, explained the repairs to be done in detail and gave me the price right then and there for the many problems that needed to be taken care of. Then, even though it was now after hours for them, they did the repair and we had water again within the three hours from the moment I did not have a water and without any additional fees from them for after hours. They are wonderful, knowledgeable and informative as well as giving fast efficient service. Also, the price was not unreasonable at all. I wish all services I receive were as efficient as E. Garrity Water. I would definitely recommend them to anyone at anytime. THANK YOU E. Garrity Water.

The finished works looks better than I even thought it would. He was on time and did the job very quickly. I plan on using this company again for all my house projects.

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.
