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.

Computer Repair: Tech -Pro Solutions Henry Meyers provided excellent customer service. He communicated with me from the very first time we spoke until my computer was returned completely repaired. I was having a problem with my schedule and he sent his technician to my work place to pick up the computer. The computer was repaired and returned to my home the same day. The repair cost was very inexpensive. The technician, Josh was very polite and professional. He set up the computer and made sure it was operating correctly. These guys are awesome. I will use them again. I highly recommend their services.

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.

Thomas installed a sliding barn door for me in my guest room as well as helped me with another small repair to a plexiglass window. He was on time, did an excellent job, and even swept up the area and took out the trash which I have never had anyone do before. I will be saving his # for future issues that pop up and I highly recommend him. Thanks so much Thomas!!

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!

I used Legacy for a paint job. Not only were their prices fair, they did an awesome job. They were very professional and completed the job before the deadline. I was a bit nervous as I never used them before, they definitely put my mind at easy with their quality of work. I will definitely refer them to family and friends. I will also be hiring them to repair my roof!

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.
