Scott came out after 6:3pm on a Friday. He was able to find the leak and repair it fast. Honest and friendly man to do business with. Far better than hiring a plumber. I recommend you use him for all your home repair needs.

Ivan was a pleasure to work with, he was prompt, courteous and gave us an excellent price to paint the interior of our rental property and repair some popcorn ceiling water damage. He finished two days ahead of schedule and stayed in close contact with me through text and email throughout the entire process from estimate to project completion. The finished work looks excellent. Will not hesitate to use him again.

Not only did they do an excellent job removing the old water heater. The new one is much more efficient, the expansion tank is also new and the additional copper was soldered on nicely. I asked them repair a side spigot on the side of my house and they were able to do so before they left. Will be recommending them!

Duane arrived on time and was able to repair the shortage to our dryer, quickly. Before he left I asked if he would troubleshoot why the light in our ceiling fan did not work, and he didn't hesitate to check it out. He fixed/replaced the dimmer and it now works perfectly. Duane is very pleasant, and the cost was very reasonable. I plan to use him again, and recommend him to family & friends. Kat

Thomas was everything the other reviewers said he would be. He was on time. He explained the problem that we had him out for and we then had him do that repair and some more "wishlist" items that we were just leaving undone. I think his pricing was very fair. We had also asked about a problem at my daughter's house which was within a mile of ours. He went there explained what was going on - did not require his services at this time. We will definitely use Thomas again as the "wishlist" gets more items on it.

Eric is hands down the best handy man that I have come across. He is very knowledgeable and detailed in an array of things involving home improvement. He was able to come in and fix some previous mistakes made by another hand man that was hired. I will recommend him to anyone I know and will hire him for all future jobs.

I am painting the interior of my home. Traci came out to provide an estimate and I must say that I was impressed with her customer service, promptness, and cost of the job. Final Touch Painting ended up staining some stair rails and the quality of work was amazing. Traci and her crew will be painting my interior when we find a better time. I highly recommend Traci and her crew to anyone who is looking for quality work.

It turns out there was no repair needed; just a simple screw tightening so I hated to blow that money but he did assess and solve the problem which was most important. He responded quickly and showed up when he said he would. I'd hire again for another job.

Having a reliable woodworker/painter/electrician do it all type of guy is invaluable. Marcus has been tremendous and has exceeded all expectations. The thing I appreciate about Marcus is not only will he fix the issue he will show you how to do the work yourself. The teach a man/woman to fish mentality is not one you run a across often in the repair/renovation business. Not only will I continue to use the services of Marcus; I would highly recommend him for any repair/renovation.. Ive learned over multiple projects he will either fix it or have someone reliable to refer you too that you get the job done.

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.
