Gino was a pleasure to work with. He did an outstanding job all around. He was very polite and respectful of me and my kids. I would definitely use him again if any thing pops up. He moved us from our old home to our new one, then the completed a list of imperfections. We needed some framing, drywall, painting and he even fixed our leaky faucet. He finished all the work in great time and a wonderful finished product. I would advise anyone to hire Gino if they had to move or any home repairs.

I am extremely satisfied with R & J's Plumbing Repair !! Starting with the moment I spoke with Jen on the phone. I have hired R & J's Plumbing Repair on 2 separate occasions now. I could immediately tell this small business is very different than any of the other plumbing companies I have used in the past. I have used small local plumbing businesses and some of the larger ones. I have never been satisfied like I am with R & J's. They provide free estimates and affordable prices. They are very knowledgeable, professional, and I now have a plumbing company I will continue to use for all of my plumbing needs. I will also make sure to recommend R & J's to all of my family, friends and anyone else needing a affordable, trustworthy and professional plumbing business.

Thanks for the great job on Thanksgiving weekend replacing the cartridge on our shower so that we had water in the house again. You were so professional and friendly and provided valuable information to my husband as you repaired the shower. You minimized the cost of parts for us and completed the job for the quoted price. You even made a recommendation for preventing a leak in the other bathroom which we greatly appreciate. We will definitely call you again in the future. Thanks for your quick response and professional completion of this job. We are so grateful to have water in the house again and will know how to handle the cutoff valve more completely next time to avoid the high water leakage charges. Thanks again.

Oscar is a professional, comes prepared with tools and supplies. He never takes a break other than to take a sip of water occasionally. His work quality is phenomenal, I would and will use Oscar again for any work needed. He hung lights, fans, he fixed closet doors, repaired Sheetrock, changed the front door entrance lock and deadbolt and many other things. I can’t come up with the words to describe how good he was. Stop looking and hire Oscar now!

Finally able to leave a review for this great company! I hired them to repair my roof. I had recently had my roof repaired, so I thought. The contractor ripped me off and left holes in my roof which I didn't find out until our last big rain when it was raining in my house! A friend of mine referred Legacy Restoration to see if they could help me. I was nervous because I had been ripped off already. I contacted Legacy, and their response time was great. They were here within 24 hours of me contacting them. Their quote was so reasonable, I was shocked. They completed the job within a weeks time. They kept me informed through the whole process keeping me at ease. There was no disruption to my household during their work. They did a fantastic job. Even the insurance company rep who came to inspect the work was very impressed with the job Legacy did. I would highly recommend them. They will also be my go to company for any future issues I may have.

Rafael Chacon has serviced my plumbing needs twice now, and I can safely say that he will be my home's plumber for the indefinite future. He was incredibly responsive to my needs, and incredibly thorough...his work stands the test of time. I cannot recommend Mr. Chacon enough.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
