Harry did a terrific job in every respect — from installing blinds, a smoke detector, and a full length mirror, to hanging cabinets and various pieces of art (including one more than 7 feet wide, which he mounted on a plaster wall perfectly level), fixing an outdoor gate, and staining outdoor steps. All the work was done with meticulous care and concern to be meeting our needs. We will definitely have him back for other projects. It's a privilege to recommend him to others!

My home is for sale. On 3.27.17-an abandoned underground oil tank was removed from the driveway. The great news is that it passed inspection! However-the front of the property was understandably a muddy mess. David responded to my request promptly and was quickly completed the clean-up on 3.26.17. David and his assistant did an awesome job-and the exterior is ready for appraisal review this morning! Also-David installed 3 battery fire/carbon alarms-I am now ready to submit my fire inspection application. Additionally-David and his assistant removed small items of junk from the backyard-the home looks even more "move-in ready"!!! Lastly-David was friendly-polite-and professional. He has worked in the past with realtors concerning renovation projects. He knew exactly what was needed-I felt confident returning to work and leaving him to complete the projects-which he did. Thank you David! I would hire again.

John and Jake repaired my brick walkway and gate. The project came out much better than I expected. I would consider John for other projects around my house.

Working on house repairs while you're out of town could be very stressful, but Dave made it such a good experience! Dave came to my house to repair the front door shortly after I posted my project. He kept the price true to his estimate, and made sure every detail was taken care of. He returned the next day to do some repairs on the chimney. He showed up on time, and got the job done on time. It was very easy to work with him -- he responded to my texts and phone calls immediately, and kept me updated of the progress he made on the work. He was very honest -- my house sitter somehow overpaid him in cash and he let me know immediately after he found out. I highly recommend Dave!

Very pleased, Steve and Gary did a great job. The price was exactly as estimated. They were clean and neat, set up an industrial dust collector in the driveway and there is not a speck of dust in the house from the operation. I highly recommend this company.

All I can is WOW. My wife and i just pulled into our driveway and saw a very professionally power washed house that looked excellent. We had some dirt streaks on our white gutters and although reluctant about the small extra charge, the came out great, it was the first thing my wife noticed. I have had my home power washed in the past, but never this good. I look forward to rehiring when the home needs to cleaned again, GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!

Excellent job on my driveway and concrete repairs! Aduke and his crew were meticulous, fast, and very professional. They paid close attention to details and were thorough in their workmanship. There were no cutting corners with these guys! They were very conscientious, neat, and they left my home and yard clean asterward. I feel that I received a good value for the cost. I will hire them again for any project I have in the future. I recommend them highly!

John did an awesome job the initial consultation to the completion of the patio install. He kept us in the loop as far as where the project stood and treated our project like it was being done at his own home. I couldn’t recommend him enough.

I have known Tony for approximately 15 years. During that time he has built a deck, a porch, recreated a sunroom, tiled a backsplash and multiple floors, painted various structures/rooms, built a greenhouse and most recently a custom fence with gate. He works when he says he will and always hits the agreed-upon budget. I look forward to many more years of trusted improvements to my home.

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.
