To say our job was complicated was an understatement. Al was very thorough. We have an old home with fabric insulation. Not to mention wires used years ago were not the typical color coding used in electricity, but the opposite, which is confusing and dangerous. Al was stumped for a bit and thru his going and opening other recepticles to find out how to correct properly. Which should have been a 45 min light install was a 2-1/2 hr project. We are very happy with Al's willingness to find solution and correct previous years errors and get the job done correctly. We highly recomnend Al for your electrical needs!!!

Chano and his staff did a great job with painting our basement ceiling joists and pipes. Our old house put up a good fight when the the existing old cheap paint wouldn't allow them to primer / paint over it but they did their research and found the perfect solution to achieve the desired look we wanted. We would highly recommend and use A Plus Decorating again for our future painting and construction need.

We hired Ron to install a new garbage disposal which might include moving the existing pipes. I had originally asked him to install a new kitchen faucet also, but then my husband decided to do that part himself. Ron was still happy to come out just for the disposal. He gave us a quote for the installation and communicated very thoroughly with me about the details of the job. When Ron came out for the installation, he measured the disposal and suggested exchanging it for a smaller model to avoid moving the pipes. My husband agreed and Ron went to store to purchase a smaller disposal. Overall, we were happy with his work and price for the job.

Commercial job. He worked around my customers and didn't cause a disburse. He even found a issue my past electrician failed to show me because it was difficult to do, but he knew of a quick fix with a short piece of pipe at a different square box. I even referred him to my wifes parents who run a Whole Foods.

I had George install a new vanity/sink/faucet, toilet and a kitchen drain. All looks great and works perfectly. After I saw his work I had him replaced a sewer drain that needed a new seal and a clean out pipe. I will definitely use him again and recommend him. He is very professional and his prices are reasonable.

I hired Kosterna Construction to do various drywall projects, including building the framing and insulating the walls. They also put in support beams where needed, built a sub floor for tile in the kitchen, installed an exterior door with frame, built frames/molding around windows, evened out a sloping floor/ ceiling. I was able to buy my own materials and paid them for the labor. They are very experienced in all new construction and remodeling. Very nice, reliable, easy to work with. I thought they did great work for a fair price and plan on hiring them for future projects! attached are some photos

I had what I thought was only frozen pipes at a rental property. Mike arrived on short notice in 5 degree weather, diagnosed the issue, found a second issue, fixed both, kept me in the loop the entire time, and insulated everything to prevent future issues. I'm very happy with his work! Highly recommended!

Had them out for a hot water heater install. Communicated in advance with Paul via email to determine heater options and arrived at best selection. Installation tech arrived on time and we had no issues with his work. The job ended up being slightly more expensive than quoted because the new heater was a bit taller than the old one; required the existing PVC pipe connectors to be sawed down, the tech explained the issue, recommended a solution, and asked for my permission to proceed at the (slightly) higher install cost. Overall good experience.

I have a small home rehab business learned the hard way that a qualified insulation team is very important. I reached out to Thumbtack with my latest full gut rehab home project and hired Illinois Insulators. Luke and his team were timely, professional, knowledgable, and passed the Village Inspection with flying colors. Illinois Insulators have the tools; labor pool and required compliance to do any level of insulation project. For this home they used BIB except for the basement which is BATT; they also do fire stopping prior to inspection which I did not know and will use this service in the future. I was 100% impressed with the results and price point. Highly recommend and will be using them exclusively for future projects!

Very professional work, applied drywall to a complicated situation involving an exposed wall with external piping. Per my request he created openings for certain access pipes but did this in an artful manner. Otis is a cheerful professional who completed the work promptly in a short period of time and left my condo without any debris or signs he was there, just a perfect wall. Very reasonable price.

My wife and I discovered that part of our finished basement had no insulation installed. Through Thumbtack we quickly found Alfredo and Midwest GREENsulation. They responded immediately to my request and we very quickly were able to set up an estimate appointment and then a project date. Alfredo and his team worked quickly and efficiently and did a wonderful job installing insulation and fixing an existing drywall problem we had. After having several projects done with other contractors I can easily say that my experience with Midwest Greensulation was the smoothest process and I would definitely work with this company again int the future!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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 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.

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.

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.
