Darryl fixed our garage ceiling for us that fell and was sagging due to someone not fixing properly before we got the house. He was professional and showed up exactly when he said he would. The ceiling now looks wonderful. He reinforced it and patched up everything so you can't even tell we had a problem. He did a fabulous job for us. I highly recommend him for your hangman needs and plan to use him again!!!

Over the years, I have hired many different service companies to maintain my yard and landscaping. Property Masters hands down is best company I have ever hired. They did exactly what I asked them to do. Their staff we're all very courteous. My yard and landscaping have never looked better! They definitely exceeded my expectations. It is nice to know I can call one company to take care of my lawn care, landscaping and handyman services. Thank you, I look forward to working with you for many years.

Greg did an excellent job. He finished in a timely manner, as described. Charged fair prices and even went above and beyond to ensure that I was satisfied. His team removed packing material, moved the furniture into place and ensured that everything was to my liking. Also, he and his team had wonderful personalities and were extremely polite. Will use again for various handyman jobs!

My experience was delightful. Although their truck had an issue, they still managed to arrive on time, so that the furniture delivery scheduled after them was not needed to be moved. They were very responsive to all my requests about several reschedules. I will certainly request their help not only for junk removal but also for handyman work.

Miguel and his team were efficient and professional getting our home readymade during our move. Very professional work patching up our lease home so we could get our deposit. The landlord commented on the drywall and joint compound work as being very clean and ready for paint. I would hire Miguel and his team again without hesitation to do handyman work.

I actually had my project work done at my home near Halloween 2017 but the guys weren’t on thumbtack or anything yet but now that they are I wanted to do a review for them. I had them out to redo my kitchen cabinets and counters. They did excellent job and came in under initial material budget and even came back out no charge a month later when my wife broke one of the shelf brackets and fixed it for us. Will use for our next project

James is honest and gets the job done. He seems to know about anything to do with houses - plumbing, construction, etc. He is currently working on a few different projects in my old house (caulked outside of windows, caulked gutters, fixed door hardware, fixed toilet issue). He's going to help repair my wood balcony, other door issues, fix concrete cracks... so far, so good. I definitely recommend him.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
