Hi Solutions is awesome. We have been looking for a handyman for awhile and we feel that we have found our handyman. Walt was very responsive and within 24hours of our project post, they reached out and preformed the services. We needed our kitchen faucet replaced. Christopher came out to install our faucet. He was personable, knowledgeable, and worked hard. He explained what he was doing and assured us that we bought a decent faucet. We look forward to hiring them again to do some more work.

I hired Antonio Originally to paint some windows, I was so impressed with his quality of work that I had hired him for 2 other jobs. What I have come to appreciate is Antonio’s ability to be a real handyman, he can do painting, carpentry, plumbing and electrical. I intend to hire Antonio again and 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.

7/3/2015 Mr. Trenton Snyder is the ultimate personable professional! He showed up at my home on time and was ready to get the job done. This was my first time hiring a Handyman, to assemble my entertainment center that had a million pieces. I automatically felt that I was dealing with a true professional, like myself. He answered and explained any and all questions that I had and offered logical and functional solutions. I highly recommend Mr. Snyder because his price was perfect/reasonable for the task at hand; and within 2 hours my entertainment center was assembled. It would have taken me an entire day to do it myself....before I knew it the job was done. He put my electronics items on the shelves after the assembly. I was quite pleased with the service that I received. I will call him again anytime that I have something that requires a Handyman, He'll be my first choice!. Hire Mr. Snyder, you won't go wrong.. Thank you!!!!! Keith Brown

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.

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.

Stavo was great. I originally hired a different plumber, but he was not able to come to the two times we agreed on an appointment time. Once I contacted him, Stavo was able to come out the very next day and at a time that worked well for me. He completed the job fast.

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!!!

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.
