John did an outstanding job in getting rid of our stubborn sink clog and I am very pleased with the results! He's very knowledgable and professional and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needed any handyman work done. If I have any projects I'd rather outsource again in the future, I'll definitely be giving him a call.

George did a substantial amount of handyman work at my home i just bought. He is a very meticulous painter that doesnt miss spots or leave a mess. George can handle jobs as routine as mounting ceiling fans or hanging pictures or window shades, all the way up to stripping, sanding and staining natural wood stairs that were hidden underneath carpet. These turned out great thanks to George. George works quickly and wont stop until a job is done to your satisfaction. I highly recommend him and will use him again myself.

Kevin contacted me to arrange a time to perform the work. He was on time. Did a great job with the installation of the new ceiling fan and wall switches that I wanted replaced. He also checked with me before leaving to be sure that I was satisfied with his work. I will defiantly contact him again in the future when I need handyman services.

Paul, The Hawaiian Handyman has exceeded our company's expectations. He is a true professional with an excellent work ethic. His expertise in many areas of construction and remodeling are superb. He is honest and perhaps one of the most skilled individuals we have ever hired. Should a project require outside subcontractors, he has the most reliable and diligent resources. We are just so relieved to have found this individual and anticipate hiring him for the many projects we have slated in 2017/2018.

Jose is polite, attentive, and very knowledgeable in his trade. He is a handyman! He fixed my security lights outside, my sink plumbing, and replaced my water heater. I am in the process of switching from my current landscape maintenance company to Cape Homes because I come to find out that Cape Homes Maintenance LLC can do almost any kind of repair work. In addition, they do landscape maintenance, painting, lanai screens, and pressure cleaning. I rather have one place to go for all my homeowner needs than to spend my time calling different companies. Whatever you want fixed, they will work with you, and their prices are reasonable.

I received an almost immediate response for plumbing services. After some "on-line" communication Bogdan showed up the next day, on schedule and solved all my faucet and toilet problems at a most reasonable cost. Bogdan was very polite, professional and explained exactly what the problems were and how he fixed them. I would definitely contact Tim Tech Services again.

Julius came out right away and gave us a quotation within an hour via text. We came to an agreement on price and he had the repairs made the next morning. Work was done very well and job was completed without any sort of re-do. I would recommend Julius's company to anyone looking for this type of carpentry work.

These workers responded right away, gave me a solid budget then met me at the site prior to the job. When we got to the job the following week they completed their job very well AND were happy to do several other items I hadn’t noticed before that needed attention as well. When my cleaner didn’t show up they offered to do the apartment cleaning for the same cost as the first cleaner. It was a wonderful experience. I will definitely use them again.

Initially hired a handyman to install tile flooring. After 1 day he hurt his back and quit, leaving me in the lurch. Called Prine and they stepped in the next day and finished it the day after! Their crew did an excellent job - very professionally installed tile!

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.
