I needed to have a ceiling fan repaired. I went into thumbtack/affordable handyman and heard from Al Rotolo within 10 minutes. He was at my house shortly thereafter. He tried to fix the existing fan, which was 10+ years old, but it kept 'shorting out.' I then ordered a new fan online and Al went to Loews, picked it up and installed it. Al is very dependable and professional. I would highly recommend him and will definitely call him when I need an electrical handyman again.

My husband needed some outlets put in for his basement and an outlet turned around and I wanted an outlet in my walk-in closet Al completed both jobs for an AMAZING price. He is PUNCTUAL, POLITE, and PROFESSIONAL ....I no longer need thumbtack for an electrician because Al is our go to guy from now on!

Al was great! He replaced a couple doorbells and installed a motion detecting light. We would definitely hire him again in the future for any electrician needs.

Katie, Matthew, and Paul repaired, powerwashed, and sealed our deck so beautifully it looks like they built us a new deck! So meticulous, helpful with advice, and we'd use them again anytime. They also cleaned out front and back porch gutters and fixed a disconnected drainpipe. Fantastic. This is a lot more than I would have expected from a "handyman" service.

After spending years trying to find a good handyman I found Fixer on Thumbtack. Matthew (I hope I'm remembering that correctly), showed up right on time and finished a job I thought would take a couple hours in less than a half hour. He knew what he was doing. I HIGHLY recommend Fixer.

Jack was very efficient, kind and got everything done that I had asked. I had him out together two end tables and a rolling rack, he got all of it accomplished in 1 hour and my items looked great! He brought all of his own tools so he did not need anything from me. I would highly recommend him for any of your handyman needs: he can, paint, assemble furniture, hang pictures or shelves and mount tv's so really anything you need can be taken care of.

Jack Burbano is the man! Extremely smooth and quick install all with some great conversation. We ended up pouring some rum and talking before he headed out! He was very communicative about when he would arrive and about the process. I felt very confident in his ability and am happy with his work. I am glad to recommend him and will absolutely use him in the future if I need anything!

I needed to find a handy man to assemble some furniture for my daughters apartment in Chicago where she attends college. I live in Los Angeles. I ordered furniture from IKEA and since I placed the order online the delivery service would deliver to her apartment but not assemble pieces. So my search began and I found thumbtack through my search online and put in the description what i needed done. Within a day I get a reply from Auburn with a price and he could assemble furniture. His prices are affordable and he was very professional and courteous and friendly. I had to coordinate with him and my daughters room mate since my daughter is not in Chicago yet. Her roommate said he was very efficient, friendly, quietly worked and cleaned up and was on time.He was there for about a couple of hours. I am so happy to have found him and he is excellent for any future projects that my daughter may need for her apartment when she gets back to Chicago! Thank you Auburn for your service.

My son got a freestanding basketball hoop for Christmas and we finally had a nice enough day in March, so I contacted Thumbtack to find a handyman. Auburn contacted me first with a fair price. He was so efficient-getting the whole thing together in about an hour. My friend's husband took 5 hours to put theirs together! I will definitely be calling him again for other projects around the house.

We had a last minute need for a carpenter and dupage home services really came through. Not only was their carpenter able to come out on a Saturday morning, but he did an excellent job as well. And to top it off, the work came in under quote so they even shaved $125 off the bill. I would recommend them for any home repair job you may have. Outstanding!

Ramp replaced on yard shed & put in place a deterrent for small animals wanting to live under my shed. The handyman was punctual & professional. He understood my needs & was able to come up with solutions. Even though he underestimated the time it would take he never faltered from doing an excellent job. I highly recommend Rob for your next project!

Jason did a great job on several handyman projects for us. He was accommodating and knowledgeable. He didn’t bat an eye when I asked him to hang a square piece of art sideways like a diamond. I wasn’t sure it could be done, but he had it up perfectly in no time. He was also flexible when I asked him to rehang curtain rods that were a little low for what I wanted. He was here about 4 hours and hung a large heavy mirror, an over sized painting, art in diamond shape, smaller mirror, 2 shelves, 5 curtain rods and installed 6 cabinet pulls. Photos below. We would recommend Jason for all your handyman needs as long as he’s not back working fir us 😉

Jason provided handyman services for our TV Mounting, ceiling fan and shop light installations in basement. He was straightforward and easy to work with. He told us pitfalls and workarounds where needed, I was little confused with the pricing however i think the mix up was more on my end. I would recommend him and use him in future .

Fernando is hands down the best handyman I've worked with in years! I had him hang a heavy mirror, a few pieces of art, replace a torn screen door, and adjust curtains. During this time he was kind enough to address a few smaller things for me that I mentioned in thought (crooked power outlet, squeaky door). Fernando is a skilled worker, very professional and gives an incredibly fair price. I will be hiring Fernando for all my future projects!

Rob was terrific! We are renters and our landlord wouldn’t fix a broken gate when we moved in. We sent a request to Rob, received a response in 30 minutes, and less than 18 hours later he came out and fixed it. He was on time, got straight to work, and was gone in an hour.

Tom of Affordable Handyman was really easy to work with. He was quick to respond to the project with a bid. He was available to discuss details by phone. He fit me in his schedule in just a few days. They showed up early when they said they would be there. They had extra parts available when my parts did not fit in. His assistant was nice and ensured all the work was done properly and they cleaned up everything. The price for his work was a very good value.

Tom quoted a very competitive price for installation of three ceiling fan boxes with wiring and the relocation of two switches and a wall outlet. We had to reschedule due to a family emergency on his side but we rescheduled promptly and the work was completed in a little over one day with very good competency. His guys were very very clean and kind. Will look to Affordable Handyman in the future.

I needed an experienced painter in a short amount of time who could work on a tight schedule; to paint an interior, resale shop booth in an older building with cement walls, at my place of business. With below freezing temperatures outside and having to paint after hours/in the evening which included a high, industrial ceiling, Nick did an excellent, very professional job for me. I will definitely be sending or requesting additional work his way!

Patrick was right on time arriving.I explained what I needed, showed him where the tools were and he took over from there. He knew exactly what to do. It hook him all of a half hour to complete the task. He put away all the tools and ladder and rolled up the 100ft drop cord like it just came off the shelf at Home Depot. He was very neat, considerate, and thorough....a true professional. Went above the call of duty and took care of things I never thought of. I WILL use Pat again, and so should you! Harry, a satisfied customer PS. When it comes to a skilled handyman experienced in a variety of jobs Pat should be the standard by which all others are judged.
