Jorge is an incredible handyman. His work quality, communication, and demeanor display the utmost professionalism. I asked Jorge to reinstall a fan for my mother and he had all the patience in the world as he did the project. Highly recommended.

Was extremely impressed with max, his ability to mount my two big screen tv's with ease was a treat. We were just moving into our new home and not only was max on time , but he pitched in and help us putting our bed frames together, and unloading the truck without being asked! Plan to use max a lot as I have found out he is a handyman as well, what a find.!

We would highly recommend Jack for handyman projects around your home. He is all of the things I commented above and wouldn't hesitate to call him again. He is a true professional at what he does and it shows in his work. I can't get photos right now, but he put together a very difficult buffet for my kitchen that required a lot of work but he finished in less than an hour and the work is perfect. He also put together a 4 drawer dresser that was done with an equal outcome. Please use Jack for your projects....you won't be disappointed.

Jaime is professional, prompt, and knowledgeable. He installed a ceiling fan and closet light fixture to existing wiring. His price was excellent. If your electrical job is simple (as in, you could possibly do it yourself but don't want to electrocute yourself, fall off the ladder, or blow a fuse) and you don't want to spend a ridiculous amount on licensed electricians (there is no reason you should pay 2-3 hours labor or $100+ for a ceiling fan install if the wiring is there) , Jaime is perfect. He guarantees his work for 90 days. He does handyman work and I am making a list of tasks I will hire him for next.

Mr. Raffaele Puleo did a great job for my place. He replaced my old toilet, connected my washer and dryer, installed some ceiling lights for me, and even went out of his way to patch up my jumpy laminate floor, in a timely manner. His rate is very reasonable and his work ethics are superior. He came with a ready attitude to work and he is very punctual. He is committed to solving my household problems and never complains while working in uncomfortable spaces. Mr. Puleo is very honest. He never uses gimmicks to try to make more money out of you and always looks for the fastest and most inexpensive solution for you. He understands, listens, and doesn't take advantage of my innocence about handyman and construction services. He will be my choice if I have needs with regard to my place in the future. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family who seek handyman services.

Alejandro was fantastic! He communicated throughout the quote and on the day he was to do the job. Once he arrived, he completed the job that same day and everything was done very professionally and the entire area was left clean. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a reliable handyman.

Don't hesitate to hire All Handy LLC!! Anthony responded quickly, squeezed me in despite his busy schedule, showed up on time, and completed the work much faster than expected. His rates are reasonable and his work was impeccable. Not sure what else you could want in a handyman!! I'm already thinking of other jobs around the house for him to do!

I contacted Fabien Lewis the owner of T&F Painting to provide an estimate to paint my recently purchased home. I needed to have every room in the house painted. Fabien and his team were professional, punctual, and personable. The job they performed exceeded my expectations. They took care, they gave professional advice on the job. They went above and beyond the painting and literally helped me to move boxes during my move. They completed minor handyman work, and was always very respectful of my property. I would recommend Fabien and team to anyone needing to have paint work completed. I give this company 5 stars.

Billy was an exceptional handy man. He arrived on time, was extremely professional and polite. He relocated one towel bar to another bathroom and installed three new towel bars and two robe hooks. He patched and painted the holes left by the old towel bars and cleaned up after himself. I highly recommend Billy to any one looking for a professional and reliable handyman.

I know Jason for many years and I am very happy with his service. He is professional plumber and also does every possible handyman job. I have many rental properties and every few weeks there is a problem. It is very difficult to find in Florida a plumber and a handyman you can count on. Many people don’t come on time or don’t come at all. Many do sloppy job and overcharge. Jason is not one of them. When I call, he will arrive immediately and fix the problem. I can always count on him. He will be on time and he will do the job perfectly. He also clean after he finishes the work. A friend of mine had an emergency in the middle of the night. She called him and he came right away to fix the broken pipe. I recommend Jason as a plumber and a handyman. He is changing a very reasonable price.

The job was to repair approx. 4 sets of bi -fold doors and two ceiling fans. Nigel and his assistant, Fatima showed up on time and were very professional. Fatima explained the process and broke down the time and labor and supplies needed to perform the work. Nigel’s level of quality and efficiency in completing the project was impeccable. They worked around my schedule and the project was seamless. Thanks again for your professionalism and attention to detail. Should I need to have additional projects completed, I will not hesitate to call you! I wholeheartedly recommend them for all of your handyman repairs to your home.

He was prompt, completed the repair as well as could be expected, and did not raise the quoted price. By far the most stress free experience with a contractor I've had in South Florida.

More handymen need to give upfront quotes like this 👍 If you are any kind of a handyman you should be able to give a total price for simple jobs like this instead of an hourly price and for me to guess what it is going to cost. This just made me realize Alberto was the handyman for me.

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.
