Cora came to my home today to give cost for cleaning monthly. She was very professional and I am looking forward to working with her. My initial assessment was very positive, so I am giving her 4 stars only because she hasn't cleaned my home yet. I am optimistic she will do a great job cleaning my home when she come on Monday.. Will do another review after the first cleaning. GNS

Jorge is a very dependable honest person. He works with you and suggests avenues that gives you insight in relation to your project. He did drywall repair, painting, cabinet installation and pressure washing at my home . I was very pleased with his efforts and attitude. He went the extra mile and ended up painting the cabinets without us asking. He is communicates well and gets back to you quickly. He finished the job in three days and really help us. He went with me to Lowes and Home Depot to help me in my selection of paint and supplies /cabinet . I would not hesitate to use him again. My wife also was pleased with his efforts.

D&D Odd jobs services did a great job repairing and painting my mother's home last week. They gave me a estimate over the phone, showed up the following day and went straight to work. The repair and paint job came out perfect. They even protected my Mother's flowers. This a great company that I will definately use again.

Needed multiple repairs done around my house as well as interior painting . I heard of Mr. Crosby through a co-worker who highly recommended him. For beginners he was very courteous and flexible with when I needed the work done. The work he did was top notch amazing, I was very pleased and his prices are very reasonable. I have actually got him coming to do work for a neighbor and a relative, I know they will be equally pleased!

I contacted Jonesy about a home repair. After some communication he dropped by. He had all his tools and started the job immediately; put in some lifting and sweat. Unfortunately, a part has to be ordered. I wasn't billed for today's visit and given an estimate. Great personality and pricing, straight to the point and very punctual. Plan to use to complete the job.

Truevolt was the electrical subcontractor on a major remodel that we did on our home, to include installing smart switches throughout. We also contracted with them to run ethernet wiring and to install additional outlets, lighting fixtures, and TV mounts outside the scope of the remodeling contract. Because of the excellent work done we now consider them our electrical needs provider.

I will call Mr. Ed's Home Repair for all of my HVAC issues in the future. He came in, look to see what the problem was and fixed it. A previous HVAC company charged me $120 and did nothing. Thanks Mr. Ed!!!!!

Matt did a great job on pressure washing my home! He showed up at the time we discussed. I provided the water and power supply and after about 15 minutes getting organized he got started. I wasn't crazy about using cleaning products since I had landscaping plants so he showed me how it would look with and without the cleaner. I decided to skip the cleaner and the results were great and I'm pleased with the outcome. Matt's rates were really good too. He was a lot cheaper than most of the quotes received, he came out right away and the exterior of my house sparkles. Thanks Matt!

    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.
