Service is quick, professional and thorough. Jonathan took my overgrown jungle of a yard and turned it into something I enjoy coming home to. I will continue to engage Jonathan's services for future landscaping projects and maintenance.

He is down to earth and family friendly. He did the repair work quickly and for a reasonable price. I would hire him again for other projects.

They communicated well from the onset and arrived promptly and gave me a very fair estimate. They actually came out the very next day which was a Sunday and completed the job. They cleaned up the debris before they left and I think they did a wonderful job. In fact, I already hired them to come back and complete another job for me. I am happy I chose them to complete my deck repair. Highly recommended!!! thanks guys..........

Repairs around the house including fixing water and termite damage on inside and outside walls and replacing the siding on a separate storage building. Jon and his team showed up when they said they would, communicated with us about what they were finding and worked with us to find the best fixes and solutions to what was wrong. And the price was a little less than the original estimate. They did a great job!

Mr. Jean did awesome work... he was very reliable. When he came to do a quote he took his time to explain the entire process. He provided me with a labor only quote and we went to the store together to purchase supplies. Mr. Jean actually worked the entire time he was at my home.... I had to let him know it was ok to take a break.... he did not waste anytime. He was very professional. He answered all my questions and even gave me some great suggestions and recommendations on saving money on supplies for future projects. I am working with Mr. Jean on my next project now...

Very pleased with the service and the professionalism. Even though the news was bad (have to have a new furnace), Reginald Ruffins was courteous, professional, and there at the appointed time. We were not charged for his looking at the furnace, either. Will not hesitate to contact again!

Louis was very professional, personable, and helpful. He was willing to work around my schedule and made several trips to complete multiple projects. He installed a chandelier, removed my laminate counter tops and created a plug for my range where there had been direct wiring before. All the work was done well, quickly, and for a very reasonable price. I'm in the process of doing several home projects myself, and Mr. Reed even took time to offer me very helpful advice to help me successfully complete the projects. I highly recommend him!

I had a water leak behind my bar sink, might I add, on a Sunday. Out of the 3 plumbers I called, his was the only one who answered the phone. He came and fixed the leak and then, designed and built us the most amazing cabinet to replace the one that had to be demolished. It is beautiful. I must say, very handy to have a plumber who also knows carpentry. I highly recommend Marvin and I am already working on a list of things he can repair for me, and build. me,

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.
