First, I would like to say that John was HONEST!!! I needed a short-notice repair on one of my rental properties and expected higher than normal quotes. Not with John. He gave me a very honest and reasonable quote and remain true to his word. There were no surprise up-charges. The work was done professionally with no issues. And he showed up on time. I intend to hire him again and highly recommend his services.

George arrived at my home 15 minutes before his scheduled appt. at 9:00am to repair/replace my toilet fixtures. George came completed the job, cleaned up the area, and made sure it was working properly. Plus, the price was PERFECT. Within a couple of hours he did a follow up text to make sure everything was still working properly. Excellent. I will call him for future repairs. Thanks, Corey

I had 4 fence posts replaced on a wooden 6 foot tall privacy fence. He was on time and very professional. His work was well done and pricing was very competitive. He did exactly what we agreed on and went over and above. He also cleaned up everything after the job was done. I am very glad I chose Jenson to do my home fence repair.

Excellent! My husband and I are so pleased with the work completed on our home by Steve Germann of Specialty Home Services. Steve’s promptness with an onsite visit was a big factor in going with his bid. The repair work completed on the damaged soffit was impeccable. Steve’s attention to detail while repairing and painting was such a benefit for us as homeowners. We are very thankful we found Steve Germann and would rehire him for services in a heartbeat.

I had Jermey come out to give me a quote on several repairs. His communication and professionalism were great. He was very detailed oriented in his walk through. He was well versed and knowledgeable, explaining what I may or may not need to get repaired. He provided a detailed quote and had things very organized.

We had a great experience with Nick at Absolute Construct HVAC Service and Repair. He showed up on time, explained the work that was to be completed and updated me along the way. When complete, he explained and tested all new features. Our Generator will now power our whole house, when we lose power. Thanks again Nick.

Words cannot express how delighted I was to find Tyler who completed the trim installation in my home within (8) hours when other companies said it would take 2 - 3 days. Tyler was available to work immediately the day after providing his estimate and worked very efficiently. He was receptive to our concerns with the previous unfinished job and came up with ideas to make the finished job look excellent. He was very friendly and courteous. Don't let the number of reviews fool you. His work was better quality than the previous "Top Pro" we hired.

Eric was very efficient and nice. I had to cancel my first appt and Eric followed up with me. He had to go back to his shop to get lumber to fix my window and didn’t charge me extra. I would recommend him to anyone needing repairs and he has the bluest eyes.

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.
