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.

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.

My garage was a MESS and with winter coming I needed to clean and reorganize everything so I can park the car inside. Daris wasn't at all daunted by the task and just got right to work. He asked thoughtful questions, took great direction and brought a creative mind to the project. He was able to condense and consolidate my things so smartly and efficiently. He's pleasant company, kind and very professional. He was nicer to my things than I would have been! I will definitely call him again.

I followed after weather was warm enough to get into the roof. Brandon showed up on time and fixed the issue and I think he did a good job. He is a nice guy to work with. Planning to hire him for some more handyman work at my house.

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.

Avi was very nice and did a great job with the project. My 5 year old daughter was asking him questions the entire time and he patiently answered her and showed her what he was doing. Then he gave her a handyman pencil when he left. He was very kind. The price did seem a tad higher than some of the others quoted on Thumbtack. But, I had hired a “cheaper” handyman the day before who kept pushing back the time and never showed up. So, in the end I’m glad that we got Avi and I will use him again!

Glenn did a wonderful job with painting work and some handy man stuff at my Condo. He arrived on time and was diligent to take care of the in very detail. In order to make sure that the job gets done on time, he had one helper - so that his customer is satisfied. I would recommend him fro any handyman related work around your house.

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.
