Kelly is the guy you are looking for when it comes to any of the handyman services. He and team will go above and beyond for all the fixes - electric/woodwork/concrete/drywall/Carpentry/mold/haul away stuff - just about everything. His prices are reasonable and they do help pick up stuff from home depot/lowes which is a big plus. They would also shop on your behalf as sometimes we dont have the correct understanding on what materials to buy. Highly Recommend.

The handyman was a little late arriving, but he did a good job and even did another small job because the main project was finished in a timely manner.

I ordered a bed frame online. Upon it's arrival, my husband decided to back out on putting it together :(. Our handyman was prompt on arrival. My bed looks wonderful. And it was a quick build with great results.

I hired Mark to remove my old kitchen sink faucet and install a new one. He arrived on time and replaced the faucet in a timely manner. The previous homeowner did a very poor job with the original faucet installation, so the removal ended up being a much bigger job than we originally thought. He stuck to his original quote and on his way out he also repaired my doorbell for no additional charge. I will definitely hire Mark for future handyman services. Highly recommend him and very reasonable.

Finally a handyman that's handy! Max showed up right on time, and finished the work within the quoted time. He even fixed a complicated job that another handyman botched.

Shane did an excellent job from start to finish! Reliable, friendly, and honest as they come! He installed our new windows and was very knowledgeable so he was able to explain all the differences between the types of windows to help us make an informed decision! His prices were SO much better than 2 other quotes...very happy we were referred to use him! Our friends used him before and also highly recommended him to us. He also did a few handyman repairs in our basement and will be coming back in a couple months to remodel the basement! He even gave some ideas on design plans already...very helpful! Highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

As many know sometimes getting a handyman to respond or scheduled can be tricky at times, but Chuck was fantastic. Answered a request and visited the property in the same day (after normal business hours no less!). Once the materials were purchased on my end, Chuck made the necessary repairs less than 24 hours later! As a bonus, he was 1/5th of the cost of 'professional' handyman services. I will continue to use Sherman and Sons for future projects and can't recommend them highly enough.

He painted my grandma's barn, and cut down a tree in her front yard. He did a great job at both jobs. We will be having him do more work around the house in the future.

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.
