My house was in desperate need of pressure washing and Chris has it looking like new siding again. I was out of town when I contacted Chris and was able to handle everything over the phone, from initial contact to payment. Chris kept in touch via text, showed up right on time and had the job done when promised. Will definitely be using Chris again when in need of a handyman.

Rodney did an excellent job pressure washing our house. When he was finished, it shined. He is dependable and conscientious and I would hire him again for other handyman projects.

First of all he is always on time. Very professional and he knows what he's doing. He helped me to put up a New double walloven after he took out the old one and wired it safely and better than previous handyman. Also he helped me with my downstairs bathroom electric problem free of charge. Very good person and I'll hire him again and again. Thank you OSCAR.👍

I have used Remi several times. He is exceptionally well trained and professional. Good prices and delivers above and beyond expectations. Others that you may encounter are "handyman" type hires that dabble with electrical - NOT Remi, he delivers every time and we've been very happy with all of his electrical work and installs - he did a large custom wiring job for us and fixed the "rats nest" of lighting/electrical that we inherited from the last owner.

Made contact with A. Hernandez on Thursday afternoon and he was here and working by 9: 30 the next morning. Every thing was done in a top quality manner. He had many construction skills and will work simple jobs . His specialty is air conditioning verified a service call I had 2 months ago. As my wife commented - he’s a very personable young man with a family looking to fill up his schedule. Will be hiring him for 2 more projects next week, and more beyond that.

This review is a little late but... I received many overpriced quotes to clean up and paint 4 pairs of shutters. I mean crazy prices. This gentlemen was honest and gave a great price and even went beyond the quote and repaired one of the shutters. House sold later on! Great job! Sorry for the very late review

This was the first time I used Thumbtack and also a first time for my painter. The app gave me the ability to receive multiple quotes and I took advantage of the opportunity when I scheduled 5 walk through bids in my home. I'll start by saying that my home is over 35 years old and I have high expectations. I wanted my walls to look like new construction. This was not going to be an easy job as it entailed floating all of the seams in my sheetrock, multiple layers of high build to give my walls a new smooth finish, new interior paint throughout, baseboards, crown molding, window sills, trim, cabinets, all new 6 panel interior doors, and a lot more. I also had a VERY tight deadline. 3 of the 5 painters that gave me a bid were one man shows and I didn't have the confidence that the job could be complete in time. I couldn't have made a better choice hiring Bobby. He is extremely easy to work with. His pride of workmanship shows. His painting crew and carpenters hold the same values. He was not the highest nor the lowest bid and I can honestly say the highest bid could not have completed this job to my expectations like Bobby did. If you are painting 1 room or an entire house, I highly recommend him. I will submit before and after pictures once I get decor back in place. I was considering putting my home on the market but everything looks like new construction so I may stay a while longer :)

    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.
