Great guy and runs a solid honest business. Caleb was clean, hard working, and very easy to talk to as well. I had him remove my laundry closet that was located in the dining room and relocate it into my sun room. He did all the demo, drywall repair, texture, paint, tile and baseboards where it was removed from. Then, he built from scratch the new closet - framing, drywall, texture, paint, door casings, etc. He re-used whatever he could, like the bi-fold doors that were on the old closet, to save me money. Even moved and hooked up my washer and dryer which wasn't part of the deal. I had my own plumber and electrician, but Caleb said he could do those things as well, and even fixed something that the plummer did wrong. Caleb is my go to handyman now for whatever I need done.

Justin arrived within 24 hrs and provided excellent service. We had a dryer vent hose which disconnected from wall and the receptacle recessed into the wall. Justin fixed the problem with a very reasonable quote and then re-situated the washer and dryer in the laundry. I will definitely call him again for handyman issues.

I needed a deck built and some handyman work done around my house. He gave me a very reasonable estimate. The work he did was quality work. He said he's been doing it for 30 years and it showed in his work. I would highly recommend him.

I do general contracting, mechanic, handyman, clean up, pressure washing, etc. Just let me know what you need.


I have worked on many different jobs from being the bottom to the top and helper to the Boss and by doing so, I have grown to understand that all aspects of the job are important. From drawing the plans to cleaning the job site, at the end of each day, in my opinion, the most important is what the last thing the customer sees. I have worked for about many years off and on for a man who was a handyman for a large real estate company in Beaumont. I took farm, mechanics and welding one and two in high school and have a year of sheet metal apprenticeship school.

I am safe and thorough and willing to do the job. I will look for and offer cost-cutting measures for my customers. Most who need a handyman are working with tight budgets and need someone who can get the turn-key finally done with far less expense than would a large contracting company. I am that man.


I have been working for other companies. I was getting paid low wages making them look good with my work. I was tired of that, so I started trying to do it myself. It's been good; thanks to God above. So, if anyone needs a handyman, I'm your man.

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.

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.
