"MMM Flooring is the best - I would definitely recommend (and use again) for any flooring or tile project (big or small). I hired Marcos Alves based on a recommendation from another customer. He was quick to respond to my request for a bid and his price was incredibly competitive - while still maintaining the highest level of quality. Because I was still residing in TX during the install, it was important I hired someone who was responsive & someone I could trust. Marcos Alves is both. He responded very quickly to all of my texts, phone calls and emails. I entrusted him with the keys to my home and he insured it was always secure at the end of the day. He was willing to go out of his way to pick up extra materials that were needed and maintain the receipts for me to pay later. Thus was so helpful as I was not residing in Naples, FL yet. His payment schedule is reasonable and fair. He stands behind his work - which is impeccable. I was so impressed with the quality of his work I hired him to remodel my entire master bathroom which included a shower and bathtub area. I hired him to do the remodel without getting his bid or getting a second estimate because I was that confident in the price he would quote and the quality of the work he would do- and I was not disappointed with either! He was able to handle the plumbing needs as well as install a light above the shower. He also has great ideas & suggestions as to where to purchase various materials. I also needed beadboard be put in the bathrooms and again his skill at woodworking was amazing - he is so multi-talented. He completed the 2400 sq ft of wood like tile floor installation in schedule and to perfection. He even made sure the closets were trimmed out with quarter round to give everything a very finished look. Many of my neighbors stopped by during the 5 week project to see what I was going - and 3 were so impressed they hired him to remodel their bathrooms and install tile throughout their homes! If I could give a 10 star review to MMM Flooring I would - and I am a VERY picky customer who expects perfection. If you hire MMM Flooring you will not be disappointed. "

"I believed Mr. Carrazana and Aquashot Property Services to be the most knowledgeable and experienced company to install my hot tub. My electrical panel was too full accept another double breaker for the necessary 240V required by the hot tub. Other electricians suggested that a separate and additional electric box be installed just for the hot tub. However, Mr. Carrazana noticed the fact that I had a 100 amp breaker powering my AC, but since the AC unit had been recently upgraded, it now only required 60 amps. Therefore he was able to replace the big 100 amp breaker, taking up (4) slots, and install a new 50 amp breaker for the hot tub and a 60 amp breaker for the AC. The hot tub I was installing was a pre-owned one, and the original wiring was not long enough, nor of the proper gauge, to meet the required electrical codes. So, I agreed that he and his assistant should replace the hot tub wiring with the proper gauge and length, so that the 50 amp GFI breaker could be installed high enough on the wall, and far enough away from the hot tub to meet code. All, this they did while it was raining, and hot tub was being installed outside by the pool, but they never complained about it. They even used a paver on the floor to bolt down the hot tub cable by the GFI breaker, so as to keep it down, but not put holes in the pool deck, and they checked with me first, before doing so. Finally, after everything was finished they cleaned up both the pool and garage areas, then went over with me the changes to the electric panel in the garage and the testing of the GFI breaker at the hot tub. They then tested the hot tub pumps, heating and lights. Everything worked perfectly. Mr. Carrazana and his knowledgeable assistant were both courteous, and highly skilled electricians, that continued work to get the job done as soon as possible. I am very pleased with all aspects of the job they did for me, installing my hot tub and satisfied with the price that beat most others. Also, I now feel more safe and secure knowing that my previously over powered AC and the hot tub now meets all electrical codes. Sincerely, Gregory Harris"

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.
