I had them replace two hose faucets outside, relocating one of them and replace my old 3-handle shower valve with a single handle. The work was done correctly, to quote (which was really competitively priced) and on time. Bill and Roxanne were sure to clean up and explain everything that they did. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again for any of my maintance or plumbing needs!

Kenneth is incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and humble, with an extraordinary ability to bring your vision to fruition! My husband and I just bought our first home, and found lots of surprises as we settled in, especially in the kitchen! The dishwasher wasn't hooked up properly and where there had been a garbage disposal previously, there was nothing! When others said we couldn't install a garbage disposal due to the existing, (also illogical) plumbing architecture, Kenneth found a way to make it happen and at a very affordable price. One thing is for sure: Kenneth is our guy for all handyman projects going forward!

Daniel did a great job on our fan, he showed up exactly on time and stayed until the job was done and the fan was working again. I would definitely hire him again and would recommend him to anyone in need of a handyman.

Andy was prompt, skilled, and very helpful in showing me what could and couldn't be done in my condo reno. The reason I am giving him 4 stars instead of 5 was the time it took to do the job, which ended up being several months instead of the 3 weeks he had thought it would take. He had some trouble with his helpers quitting, which is why it took so long to do. I would highly recommend him for anything from small handyman jobs around the house, up to big jobs like tile and laminate installation.

Gregg is an excellent handyman. He can do pretty much anything. He shows up at agreed upon time and does a great job and he does it right the first time! Best of all, his pricing is very reasonable and has allowed me to do all those small jobs that small service businesses don't want to bother with.

This was one of the most pleasant experiences I have had with a handyman in a long time. You don't find people who take pride in their work anymore, but these two men sure did. They arrived before the time we was given, they both got right to work. I have hired by the hour handyman before and they take their sweet time to do everything! I was very impressed with their professionalism, friendliness, work ethic and most importantly great work! If your looking for someone to do the job and do it right this is your guy!!! When they left the job was done! Thank you so much for all your hard work. P.S we might have another job for you next week😉

I love Doug and Christina. They came to my home to resolve a plumbing issue I had upstairs. While they were there I discovered they are multi talented. Christina cleans homes and I would definitely give her a try. Doug can fix almost anything and will be honest if he can't do the work. They are helping me now with one of my real estate clients with repairs after purchasing her new home. I will be calling them to do repairs on my home prior to selling. Keep up the great customer service and work..

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.
