Me. Lopez is extremely professional. Extremely fair priced and right on schedule with his arrival time. He takes the time to explain what he will be doing, he communicates very very well, there are no hidden fees. He doesn't try to just upscale you on a job. I couldn't be happier with how he presents himself and the quality of his work. I am extremely happy, Mr Lopez will be my go to guy for all of my handyman projects now and in the future. I don't hesitate at all to highly recommend him. I feel very lucky to have made contact with him.

I had a very complicated twin bunk bed and desk system to be assembled, and Travis exceeded every expectation I had. First, he was super polite and friendly on the phone, and his quote and final price were extremely fair. Second, he arrived right on time, got right to work, and finished in what felt like no time at all. In addition to doing an amazing job on the bed (he even helped me make the bunks once he was done assembling them!), he showed me how to hang a shelf and camera in my son's new room. He also disassembled and hauled away his old bed. If you have any handyman needs don't hesitate to use Travis!

I contacted Luciano to on Thumbtack to pressure wash my driveway. I live in a different state and I was scared to hire someone i can trust, but although other people contacted me, Luciano made me feel comfortable and at ease. In addition to that, he also offered to fix some bee damages i had on my porch at no charge. I don't know Luciano personally, but i can say he is a good person and really cares about helping others. I will recommend him to anyone who needs a handyman or pressure washing. He is definitely trustworthy and you won't regret it. Thank you again Luciano, you were awesome!

James is fantastic. He was punctual, honest and had the right attitude to get the job done. He helped disassemble the treadmill when it would not go through the door and also took away the electric grill that was not part of the plan. I would not hesitate to reach out to him again for any handyman, moving related work. Thanks James!

James responed to our request and did a very professional job at taking down a wall of 12x12 tiles (that were falling off the wall) at the restaurant. He put up new backer board and tiled it properly. We were pleased with his work and would recommend James for handyman jobs.

It was all great. He knows what he is doing and knows how to add value and provides own suggestions that we did not think of to save material and money. He knows and can carpentry, electric and plumbing. Overall, this is how we would like all handymen to be, but few are/have been. So we can totally recommend Joel for any handyman/home improvement project. I also know he'll get his GC license soon.

Mike quickly knocked out my long list of small projects and odd jobs around the house, and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the work he did. Nice guy, very professional, fair prices, and my dog (who is a good judge of character) didn’t bark at him! 😄 I will definitely hire him again in the future!

Chris offers his clients excellent work quality, he is very professional, punctual and responsive. We have used Chris twice on projects in our home, the last being a complete kitchen remodel. He did an outstanding job. I could not have been happier. He will offer hints that will save customers money and he prices his labor fairly. He does not waste time or material. I have already got him set up to do a remodel on my main bath as my summer project next year. I would not consider hiring anyone else to remodel my house. I was very fortunate to find Chris and I highly recommend his services.

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.
