We had 7 solid wood doors that we needed installed. Jim quoted us an awesome price and said it would probably take about 2 days to get them all done. Not only did he show up exactly when he said he would he knocked out all 7 in one day! I have never seen someone so determined to get a job done right the first time and work so hard to ensure that I was pleased with the work he did! Jim was very professional and a pleasure to be around. He is very knowledgeable and good at what he does! We WILL hire him again for future projects! You won't find a better handyman and you won't be disappointed! Very highly recommended! Thanks Jim!!

Bill went more than an extra mile! He not only saved me more than $450 on an unnecessary toilet replacement, he crawled under my house to check for leaks which the professional plumber didn't do! He was on time, knowledgeable and friendly. I would not hesitate to use his services again!

We recently employed Altecca for a modest remodel in our home. Troy, Jay and crew had good suggestions and worked hard creating a functional, attractive utility room for us from 2 smaller useless rooms. They also demolished a defunct hot tub, tore down and reworked our deck, put in a closet and moved electrical and plumbing utilities for the laundry. All in all we are quite pleased with their work and their pleasant, professional attitude. We highly recommend the Altecca team for anyone looking to remodel. We would definitely use them again.

Denning Handyman Services are an exceptional couple of men. They worked hard, where very professional, on time and even did some extra work for no extra charge. They were very accommodating to our work schedule and work very late in the day. I would recommend them for any work required.

Ryan and Joseph showed up on time (a bit early, actually), got the job done quickly, cleaned up before leaving and were very friendly. Would strongly recommend these guys!

Scott has been our "go to" guy for several projects, including fencing, landscaping, home inspection, and plumbing and flooring installation. He is always prompt, reasonably-priced, does a great job, and a pleasure to do business with.

I had john do a remodel for my kitchen. He did some tile work behind the sink and put in some cabinets. He also put an island for me. The best part, he did it on time and under my budget! I highly recommend this handyman.

David was highly flexible for scheduling, communicative, and professional. It was a simple VERY quick job to move a small couch upstairs. David charged for the amount of work at a reasonable price point - versus other quotes from movers with a minimum 1 hour rate! While here he asked if there was anything else I needed done, and efficiently accomplished another task -again at a reasonable price point. I've kept his contact information as my go-to handyman, and recommend him without reservation.

I had a very challenging job to be done in my home and the guys from Mobile Pressure Wash and Painting, ( and might I add, "Handyman Service"), completed it just the way I wanted. They installed a HUGE ceiling fan and light in my entryway, which has a 16 foot high ceiling! (Scary!) And if that's not bad enough, some old wiring needed to be fixed and updated to make it work. Anyway, they got it all fixed up and I love my new light and fan! Also, the guys were funny, really nice, and the price of their service was great! I will be hiring them again when I need any kind of home repairs or painting 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.
