Jorge need to fix a few lightings and repair some existing issues with light. He was really fantastic and on time. First he thought about it and then he started to make a solid and clean job. He needed his time but I must also say the problem wasn't easy to solve and we needed new material. Also we had a beautiful dining table pendant which took a lot of time since we needed to assemble all the little pieces. I would recommend him to everybody. Our next appointment is already booked.

They were on time, amazing, came right in and got to work quickly and loved cleaning my home. They did a complete and excellent job. They were also friendly and pleasant with a "can do" attitude. I will be hiring them again. I then got a follow up call to see if I was pleased! (That is rare these days!)

Jerod came to repair a number of outlets that weren't working. He managed communication well; he was efficient, polite, direct, clear and easy to work with. The issue was diagnosed and solved quickly. I'd both recommend him and work with him again.

Jack was so knowledgeable and did an excellent job on repairing our front garden water fountain. He immediately knew what was needed to be done and got it fixed. He quoted us a price and that was exactly what he ended up charging. Jack is a very kind and professional person . We recommend him to everyone. Excellent experience and service .

Marcelo was very professional and did a great job. He was prompt and the job was done within 2 days! He had good suggestions, was patient with all my questions and did exactly as we asked. We have a strict HOA and he was patient while we sorted out getting approval on colors. They also repaired facia board and pressure cleaned the property beforehand. Everything was cleaned up afterwards as well. I would highly recommend and use again if needed.

My request was simple: fully paint three rooms and several doors plus touch up walls where needed. In preparation for my house to be put on the market, I needed it to show well without investing too much money. Fabian gave great advice, pointing out areas that should be painted and even suggesting a lovely neutral color. He was very accommodating (next day service!) and willing to negotiate a very fair price. His crew was timely, professional, and they clearly took pride in the work they were doing. They expertly painted three bedrooms, multiple doors and touched up walls throughout my house. They also did some repairs on a ceiling and on outside planter boxes. It was a pleasure to have T & F Painting work in my house and they did an excellent job!

The ABSOLUTE BEST experience I've ever had from any service related company to date! Upon calling I received a refreshing greeting from a clear and decent sounding gentleman whom I felt paid attention to my description of my issue very well (in comparison to ANY call Ive placed to any type of business in the past). After conversing a few minutes, he stated that himself or another technician could then come assess the issue in person at no cost or—even a feeling of—obligation. I called at 3:30pm, when he told me someone could come that evening if necessary, I mumbled that I'd be home around 5/5:30 and was pleasantly surprised when he swiftly replied that he'd have someone there between 5:30 & 6. The technician (not sure if it was the same gentleman or not) who arrived, did so right at 5:45. He was very professional and surprisingly clean, especially for someone in the Plumbing industry! He was able to assess and provide a general diagnosis of the issue fairly quickly. The quote he then gave me was just as pleasantly surprising as the rest of my experience. He was also very informative of all that was necessary to complete the repair and also of any instances that might require additional cost. I could continue to rant and rave about each detail, and if I wasn't worried about running out of allotted space or "characters" than I would! So, to sum it up: he completed the repair and was on his way out the door in under an hour, BUT wound up being able to repair certain parts instead of replacing them, in order to "save me money" (his words!) and so he attempted to HAND ME BACK MONEY on his way out, as he explained how his company's unique warranties worked in my/the customer's favor, should there be issues within the same area in the future—ANY time–ever in the future! Needless to say—I was so blown away at the quality of his work, character/ honesty/ humanity and the overall customer service from AAA DRAIN & SEWER as a whole—that I refused the money he attempted to return to me. This is an outstanding company by all measures and I'll remain their advocate for life!

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.
