Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I hire the best handyman in Atlanta?

To find the best handymen in Atlanta for your home project, start by comparing the professionals in your area. Make a list of all the repairs that you need completed, and ask the handymen for an estimate for these services.

If the pros have a website or online profile, read reviews from past customers. Try to find project photos that are similar to yours, and make sure they have proper insurance. You may also want to see if the handymen you’re considering are licensed.

Lastly, ask several handymen in the Atlanta area to send you free estimates for your project or repairs before you hire anyone.

How much should I pay for handyman services in Atlanta?

If you hire a handyman in Atlanta, you should expect to pay around $45 to $80 per hour for their services. This cost is subject to change based on the job itself, the parts required, the distance the handyman has to drive and possibly other factors. Those offering lower prices may also be new businesses hoping to gain more experience. 

To find out exactly how much you’ll pay for handyman services, contact the best handyman in Atlanta today.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a handyman during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Setting up a safe consultation or appointment with a handyman during the COVID-19 pandemic starts with comparing local professionals online. Message or call the handyman to ask about performing a consultation over the phone or, better yet, a video call. This will allow the handyman to assess the problem without increasing the risk of transmission by visiting your home. If the service is essential and the handyman needs to enter your home, you’ll need to take stringent safety measures for the visit. Discuss temporary fixes if possible, and come up with a plan for safety and digital payment.

How can I find out if a handyman is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Depending on the service needed, a handyman may be considered essential during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can check by visiting your city or state’s government website. In addition, CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage offers national guidelines for determining essential services. Their page delineates 16 essential infrastructure sectors that can continue to operate during the pandemic. But note that not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a handyman when social distancing?

If you hire a handyman, stay 6 feet away from the handyman at all times. If you have an indoor emergency and it’s considered an essential service, take extra social distancing precautions with your handyman. Do not make physical contact, stay at least 6 feet from the handyman, and exchange payment through digital services instead of cash or check. Talk with your handyman and agree on a plan in advance.

Can I use digital payments to pay for handyman services?

Many handymen accept digital payments for work done repairing homes. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the urgent need for social distancing, this trend is likely going to increase. Handymen often accept payment through popular platforms like Paypal, Google Pay, Zelle, Venmo, Square Cash and more. 

Consult with the handyman before you begin work to ensure you’ll be able to conduct the transaction safely and in compliance with official guidelines.

Does a handyman need to enter my home?

In many cases, a handyman will not need to enter your home for outdoor repairs, but they’ll likely need to enter your home for indoor repairs. With the pandemic’s associated safety guidelines, it’s important that this only occurs for absolutely essential projects. Avoid any physical contact with the handyman if this is the case. Sanitize surfaces, and conduct payment through a digital platform like PayPal or Venmo. Be sure to contact your handyman and develop a plan before the job commences.

Is it worth it to hire a handyman?

It’s worth it to hire a handyman in many cases. For example, you should hire a handyman when the project’s size and scope make it challenging to complete by yourself. These projects may include major home remodels or additions, foundation work or electrical/plumbing/HVAC-related tasks. However, make sure the handyman has the proper credentials or license to perform the necessary work.

You might also want to hire a handyman if a contractor’s price is too high. Handymen often charge less than general contractors, but contractors typically have the required license to perform certain tasks.

And, lastly, think about the complexity of the job and the cost of future repairs. It’s worth it to hire a handyman when the project is complex. Doing something incorrectly can wind up costing more than hiring the pro in the first place.

Do handymen offer remote or virtual services?

Because a handyman needs to be physically present to perform work, they have not traditionally offered remote or virtual services. However, if you come across handyman profiles that state they offer remote services, message the handymen to see what those services include.

Confer with your handyman to see if consulting over video calls is possible. The professional may be able to walk you through performing basic plumbing, electrical, HVAC and other types of repairs around the house. Compare the handymen in your area side-by-side online, and ask whether they’re willing to help remotely.

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.

Great experience. He knocked out the work in less time than expected and put in a great vanity along with some other electrical and caulking projects. I’ll definitely be using him again.

I needed someone to help me pull my dishwasher away from the wall and out of the “nook” so that a hole from behind the dishwasher could be caulked. Roaches living in the walls have been using the space around the hole/opening for the power cord to the dishwasher to get into my kitchen. Removing a dishwasher is a delicate thing and you really have to be knowledgeable about appliances in order to do it. Mr. Lynn did a fantastic job in no time flat!! He clearly knows what he is doing. He even cleaned behind my dishwasher and did a great job with the caulking. I would highly recommend Mr. Lynn.

Initially had a good experience. was communicative, showed up & completed a few minor jobs. only issue was he was messy, leaving caulk on my sink and floor. after a few weeks I realized that one of his repairs was done incorrectly. contacted him & he admitted to installing the vent backwards. Said he’d come back to fix it & now after 3 weeks of me texting & calling him with no response, I had to hire/pay someone else to fix his mistake. Extremely unprofessional & I would not recommend him

Chris did an amazing job with a number of repair jobs at my home: 1) Installing a new garage door opener 2) Installing (5) new smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms 3) Re-caulking my guest bathroom 4) Installing (3) new light fixtures 5) Installing (1) new fan in my guest bedroom, repairing my master bedroom fan, and removing my living room fan 6) Repairing (3) blind valances that required new clips 7) Installing new hand towel fixture for my half bath Chris was extremely friendly, thorough, patient, and all his work was of high quality. He arrived on time and cleaned up after himself and removed all the empty boxes, old garage door opener, and took them to the dumpster. I would absolutely recommend him and would rehire him for additional work as well!

We contacted AJ to help us with some misc. home repairs - repair exterior posts damaged with wood rot, sheetrock repairs. AJ was always responsive and would let us know when to expect him. He cleaned the work space very thoroughly and was extremely respectful of our home - he treated it as if it was his own home. AJ's prices were reasonable and he is detail oriented. AJ also knows his own limits and is comfortable saying no in the instance he feels that he is not the right person for the job. AJ also made recommendations on a few other small projects that came up while he was at our home and dispensed advice, which we appreciated. Lastly, my husband and I are very detail-oriented people and at one point we asked AJ if he could add a little more caulk around a few seams, and he did. He has high standards and great customer service. Thank you, AJ! We look forward to working with you on the future projects we discussed!
