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.

Chano and his team did an excellent job on my laminate hardwood floors. It looks beautiful! They were on time and even were able to finish the job earlier than expected. I would definitely use them again and recommend to others.

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 😉

Very experienced handyman with plumbing knowledge. He was able to install the vanity and faucet with out taking down the mirror that rested on the vanity top. The finished result is very nice and makes a difference.

We were blown away by the work Fernando did for us! There is nothing more difficult and time consuming putting together IKEA furniture and not just 1 but 3 dressers! All while listening to my crazy family all home at once. He also hung 2 televisions for us. I will never call anyone else for my handyman needs! Thank you again Fernando!

Roberto was the ONLY handyman that showed up, on time and followed through with his appointments. Refreshing! We had 2 good sized holes in our wall as well has deep scratch marks, from our (then) puppy. Roberto took care of ALL of the damage, looks brand new. We would definitely hire him again...:)

I hired Claudio to tile my backsplash in my kitchen. He quoted me a very fair price, showed up on time despite a snow storm and did an excellent job! He was cheerful and pleasant throughout the whole process and cleaned up everything leaving the kitchen the same as when he arrived (except nicer with the new tile)! I plan on using Claudio for other projects in my house and am happy to have found a handyman that not only follows up but shows up and does a great job.

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.

Cleo helped me move several heavy pieces of furniture from my storage unit. He was friendly and flexible in discussing the details of the job in advance, and he was courteous and efficient in performing the job. Overall, he was extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. I definitely recommend his handyman services to others, and I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again the next time I need a hand.

Hose and Steven came over to install the kitchen Faucet, sink and the garbage disposal. They did a very good job with it. There was an issue where the dishwasher drain was leaking and they came over next day morning to fix the problem. There were some instances where they had to run to Home depot to get some required plumbing parts.

I was a little hesitant at first, I've had such bad luck with "handymen". Jake is a nice, peaceful guy. What I liked most was he didn't pretend to know something. He came by on Saturday, finished up the little jobs, found the problems with some others. He was friendly, thorough and didn't mind the questions. :) He is definitely a keeper. Thank you Jake and thank you Thumbtack.

All of the above. Arrived on time, completed both jobs in a very timely manner and gave me pointers on how to maintain drains. I think I have found my handyman for future problems that may arise. Was very professional and pleasant to deal with and was very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend Zachary to anyone. A++
