Needed a handyman to repair several items before I sold my condo, including multiple cracks in drywall and a broken faucet handle. Walter and his team not only repaired everything perfectly, but the price was more than reasonable when compared to other offers I received. Not only that, but I live out of state, and Walter was in constant communication and provided detailed before and after pictures. Very happy with the level of work and service provided.

Herbert was great to work with. We had work on a few things for our office, handyman tasks including building a wooden frame to cover a bunch of wires, cutting a table, fixing a door, hanging few things. Our job was 2 days long. He arrived on time both days, the first day he went to home depot to buy some supplies we didnt have, kept the receipt, he was very honest about his costs and time. Proficient with his work and is very handy, easy to communicate with, nice guy. Will definitely work with him again!

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.

I hired Cesar Velasquez of Cesar Design to mount a flat screen TV and repair a bi-fold closet door. Cesar and his team were great - they showed up on time, were very friendly, listened to what I needed done, and did the job well. I would highly recommend Cesar Design for any handyman project.

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.

Rob came out to finish an IKEA cabinet that had us stymied about 90% through. He was terrific...immediately saw what the problem was, fixed that and finished the assembly. He's a very nice guy, and we are thrilled to have found a great handyman.

Wes came after regular business hours and put up 4 heavy shelves in the kitchen, installed a ceiling fan, and assembled side arms to a sofa. He was quick, methodical, quiet, clean, and did a phenomenal job. His main concern was customer satisfaction and offered to return in the future if I found that I wanted adjustments to his work. I will definitely hire Wes again and will be sure to let my friends and family know about him for when they need a handyman. So glad I selected him!

Juan was absolutely wonderful. An honest man - which i think is a value and trait that you seldom find nowadays. For a homeowner like me, it's important to find a handyman that is honest, professional, responsive and punctual. He comes to the job on time, he updates you about the job progress so you are aware of it. Best of all, Juan gives you a fair price. He knows the value of doing a great job for a fair price! Because of that, I have no doubt that I will hire him again for any any minor repairs or major projects in my house. I highly recommend him and his company!!!

Lee was great. He was early and ready to work. Thankfully he was able to prevent us making a big mistake as parts were missing from the showerhead we purchased. While I ran out to get a new one he worked on other projects I requested. I will definitely be calling again. Once he left I thought of a few more things that needed his handyman services.

I was very happy with work done by Kelvin from Gifted Hands. He was punctual and professional. He finished my fence repair work along with another drywall repair job. For both cases, he gave me his options, pros and cons of each and he also listened to my needs and requirement. He is very neat in his work as well. I'd highly recommend him for any handyman projects.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

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.

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.

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.
