I had an outdoor spigot come loose from the hose bib over a weekend, and water was trickling in behind my hardiplank siding. Ben responded to my inquiry on Thumbtack almost immediately and said he could come out to provide a free estimate. Being a Sunday afternoon, I asked him when, thinking it may be an upcoming weekday. He responded "Now - I'm on my way!" I gave him my address, and he said he would be there at "1:56 pm," according to his GPS. Sure enough, he pulled into my driveway exactly when he said he would. Ben and his associate diagnosed my issue, offered a very reasonable quote, and jumped right into the work. He even threw in a new local cutoff valve for free. I then mentioned I also had an issue with overall water pressure in my house being too high (pushing 120 psi). It was an issue I had been putting off fixing, as another plumber recommended I replace both the Pressure Reduction Valve (PRV) to my city water intake and add an expensive expansion tank to my hot water heater. Ben explained that the PRV was my main culprit, and the expansion tank wasn't really necessary at this time. He quoted me another reasonable price (far below that of my previous plumber), then went out to purchase a part and completed the work - all in the same day (and on a Sunday, nonetheless!). Upon completion, Ben walked me through all the work that was done and made sure I understood how to maintain and operate everything going forward. I was thrilled to see my overall pressure to my house and general plumbing was now at about 60-70 psi, instead of the 120 it was running before. Ben saved me a boatload of future headaches with a quick and simple fix. Ben did an extremely thorough, high-quality job that was very reasonably priced. He's my new go-to plumber from this point forward. I will be highly recommending him to anyone in need of plumbing services!

I am elated to have found Mr. Cox on thumbtack. I needed someone to come in and do some maintenance and repairs on a rental. Mr. Cox was able to come out the same day and was prompt. He repaired everything and made sure that I was satisfied with the work. His fees are reasonable and he tries his best to work with your budget. I will be using him again in the very near future.

I was looking for someone to do routine yard maintenance at my new house but I needed a 100 foot tall dead tree taken down first. It was a monster tree. Gerardo did a fantastic job getting the tree down at a very good price. It was a difficult job and he was very professional and is a nice person to work with.

We had general home repairs and painting done by Nando and we are very pleased with all the services provided. We had drywall repair and interior and exterior house painting done that was of very high quality. Also had shower cleaning, re grouting and resurfacing done that was excellent. We had an exterior water faucet replaced that is working very well with no leaks. We also had some door seals and rotten would replaced around door frames. Nando employees were polite, prompt and very capable. We were very pleased with Nando handyman services. The owner is courteous and answers all calls promptly and ensures that all work is done to your satisfaction. We give Nando 5 plus stars!

Scott did a great job with mowing/edging/blowing my lawn today. I'm very impressed with the speed the job was done and done well. His price is tough to beat. I did get two other firm quotes before Scott, but they had higher prices because of additional services they required besides mowing, etc. He is now doing recurring work (every other week) with us and I look forward to continue reviewing his service each time.

Inmer did an amazing job on my house by replacing old GP siding with new Hardi board. He and his crew worked non-stop and were very detailed. He is one of the most honest, nicest contractors I have ever hired and would hire him again instantly. My home now looks amazing and the paint job was done to perfection! I highly recommend his services. - Lawrenceville

I will use Maddox Chore and Maintenance for all my future projects. And I will recommend him to friends. Carl did a great job! While my project was furniture assembly; Carl took a look at my laundry room and suggested options for making my washer and dryer easier to access. The service Carl provided was second to none and the price was very affordable, too!

Bruce and Mike are all around great guys. No job is too big or too small. We hired them for a series of small/medium jobs around the house, and outside, as we prepared to put our house on the market having tight time frames. Bruce was happy and ready to oblige completing the work timely and efficiently. I truly appreciate them and they are definitely worth keeping in your hip pocket for projects you'll have in your home throughout time. You really cant go wrong hiring these guys. They're professional, ready to make it happen for you, quick, and dependable. Thank you Bruce and Mike (although Mike doesnt say much, LOL). We appreciate ALL you've done to help us make our deadline and for the great work you performed to help us sell the home!!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What does a property management company do?

    Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

    • Marketing the rental property
    • Collecting rent
    • Handling repair problems
    • Responding to tenant complaints
    • Evicting tenants  

    A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

    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.

    Why is property management important?

    A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
