Erick's team was fantastic. They came out and in two hours completely cleaned the apartment. I was looking for a deep clean and they went above and beyond. Ensuring baseboards to ceilings were clean. Would definitely hire again anytime!

The Name on his business card "handyman" is both consistent with his own assessment of his business model and technical capabilities, and in my opinion, he is a very honorable professional smart enough to not take on a project that has any chance of disappointing the client. I would strongly recommend him to anyone.

We wanted to start off saying that we love Thumbtack. We hired Tim because of the wonderful reviews that he had and he was so quick to get back to us on a proposal. He was very fixable with his schedule and ours. We were amazed that he offered to come out New Year's Day to patch up/fix our dry walling in our up stairs bathroom. Tim arrived in a timely manner and immediately started tackling the job. Another thing that was so touching about hiring him is he brought his wife along to watch him work because he had a busy schedule the next couple of days and wouldn't get to spend much time with her. We both enjoyed their company as he worked on the bathroom. He actually taught my husband how to patch dry walling, which was very nice because we are getting our house ready to sale. He finished the bathroom project in a few hours and we were very happy with the results. We will definitely hire Tim in the future and recommend him to anyone that needs an all around handyman.

John did an excellent job with painting our condo unit. He was very professional, and paid attention to all the details. We are very happy with the results. John has years of experience in this field, and you could tell by his work. Would recommend him to anyone looking for a skilled handyman/painter.

I highly recommend Stavo/ All Seasons Pro... you won't be disappointed. From my initial inquiry about needing a handyman, Stavo responded immediately and even sent pictures of previous jobs he did. He followed up and stayed in contact with me until I was ready for him to complete the job. He was punctual and came ready to work. Best of all, he was honest and up front about tasks that I thought needed to be done and saved me money by making more reasonable suggestions. I will definitely use Stavo and his team again. Thanks Stavo🤗

Where do I start? Matthew was amazing! If you have needs for a handyman, you have found one. From responsiveness to punctuality to expertise of his craft; he does it all. This guy is amazing. He asks questions and genuinely wants to please the customer. "The customer is always right" is his motto. Trust me he treats your ideas as if it's the Holy Grail of his project and even stays later to make sure you are pleased with his work. He cleaned up after the work was done making sure to leave my place as neat as possible. Pricing was more than reasonable for the amount of work that he did. So a big thank you to Matthew for making my apartment look fabulous and just being overall a great guy during the whole process. CHOOSE HIM!!!

We hired Nico for handyman projects around our 85 years old house. He did excellent job with drywall and window sill repair and also helped us install kitchen cabinets. Nico is super nice and easy to work with. He came well prepared with tools and showed up on time. Don't get fooled by his company name. He does more than painting and does it well. His repair was so flawless we forgot where the holes were. We hired him hourly and his rate was very reasonable. We will be his repeat customer.

I needed a plasterer for a pretty small job, finishing an 8' section of drywall. I don't have the skills or the patience to do it myself. Mike was super-responsive, turned up when he said he would and gave me a good price, great service and cleaned everything up when he finished. He even did another little repair for me in another room. I would definitely use him again.

I cannot say enough good things about United Construction. I had to remodel my kitchen and, after having to suffer a bathroom remodelation with another compamy, I was very skeptical about going through this process again. But I was lucky enough to find Carlos and Ulrich. They were simply the best. Not only it was the best rate that I could find but also their work was impeccable. They did all of what they'd promissed in the given time frame. I wish I had found them before! I am sure I will call them for future works and I highly recommend their services to anyone having to remodel.

The work performed by Dave was great! He responded within minutes of my initial post and was extremely responsive with my needs. He was able to complete the work in short notice and was quick, clean and extremely professional and polite. He fixed a drywall repair that another contractor did and made it look like new! He works fast but the quality of his work is impeccable. I will definitely hire this contractor for future jobs.

Mr. Handyman is a passionate professional that performs above and beyond the bar. He responded immediately with a rough quote and came out to our home to complete an on-site estimate, paying attention to the details of the scope of work requested. He also identified some areas that we were unaware of which showed us he knew what he was doing. We decided to choose Mr. Handyman and we are very happy with our decision. Our project, which consisted of framing and installing drywall, had a tight schedule, yet Mr. Handyman and his crew were committed to completing the job. They were timely arrivers and good with communication as they updated us daily on progress. The completed outcome of the project was satisfactory and professionally done as we asked for. These guys are dedicated workers and we hope to have more projects with them in the future when new funds become available because they DO IT ALL!

Jesus was great! After another company tried to upsell me on expensive work to my front porch that I didn't want or need, "Master Handyman" Jesus Paredes gave me honest information on what repairs I actually needed and offered excellent work at a fair price. The work took less time than expected, and Jesus left me the unused materials so I could return them to Home Depot for a refund, so the project wound up costing less than the original estimate. I will certainly call Master Handyman for future projects -- they do carpentry, painting, electrical, plumbing, drywall, pressure washing and more -- and I would recommend them without hesitation.

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.
