Joe came here to fix our garbage disposal, which he did quickly and also advised us on some other home repair questions we had - also was super considerate, even made sure cats were ok while he was looking at some swelling on our patio door frame (door was open)

I lucked out choosing John. I think his engineering knowledge brings excellence to whatever he needs to repair and/or fix for you. He took care of a intricate Bose speaker disconnection problem and took the time to trouble shoot & straighten out cable connections for surround sound & TV picture problem. All at a reasonable price and in a timely manner.

I like that I got an immediate response. The appointment was kept as planned according to my schedule and the fee was exactly as I had been told ahead of time. Mr. Rehman was both friendly and helpful in determining placements of the lights and I will definitely request his services again as needed (great to have a handyman on call!). Quality of work and value was very good. This was a job that has been on the "to do list" for almost a year; wish I had used Thumbtack and Renew Home sooner as it was so easy!

I had a small repair job that I needed done on my carpet. I had a really hard time finding someone who was willing to do such a small repair. Thankfully, Shawn Selden from Sharp Skill Floor Coverings saved the day! He came out to my home and took care of the repair, no problem. He was an incredibly nice guy! very courteous and honest. Shawn was upfront on pricing and was very reasonable. I will most definitely hire him again and also recommend Sharp Skill Floor Covering to any friends, family, or anyone who needs a flooring project done. Clearly, no job is too small...Thanks Shawn!

This was my first Thumbtack experience, and I'm glad I was working with Robert from Reliable Handyman Services. He took the time to understand the issue and, even though he only had pictures I texted him, provided a reasonable quote prior to starting the work. He was always prompt when replying to my Thumbtack messages and text messages. He showed up on time, did a great job, resolved the issue the first time, and stayed true to his original quote as nothing unexpected popped up during the repair. I'm not sure about other companies on this site, but I would definitely recommend this one.

Needed a drywall replaced due to water damage. Reubert walked me through the work and gave me a very fair estimate for the work which was completed 2 days later. I have no problem recommending Reubert for drywall installation or repair.

Don was knowledgeable and forthcoming with suggesting solution options. His billing was very transparent and clear. He was timely and tiddy. His work was completed with precison. He was extremely professional and considerate of my home. For instance, he removed his outisde shoes, didn’t talk on his cell phone while working and he ate lunch/snacks in his car. One part he ordered didnt fit properly, he quickly ordered a replacement and only charged me for 1 part. He did a multitude of projects (electrical, plumbing, general repairs). He was honest when a task could be handle better by someone else. I would hire him again without hestitation.

We hired Van to repair some drywall and paint some of the interior rooms of our home. He arrived and gave an estimate. Then he came back at another time to meet with us to discuss exactly what we wanted done. He was timely and professional and very courteous. He came back the next day for five days to take care of all the things we needed to fix and paint. He and his partner showed up at the exact same time everyday and put in a full day's work. Everyday when they left, they left my home very neat and tidy and were very diligent about that. They did an awesome job. It looks great. I felt they were trustworthy and if I need more work done, would definitely hire them again.

Ken did some tile work in my kitchen recently as well as some repairs to my doors and caulking our kitchen cabinets. From start to finish, Ken did a fantastic job! He communicated with me from the get-go, had a fair price, and was flexible with the times that he could come. He arrived on our agreed-upon time, performed the work as promised, and did a phenomenal job. He was done quickly and my wife and I were thrilled with his work. We will definitely be utilizing his services again in the future and I recommend him to anyone who needs any type of handyman work done.

I hired JL Masonry to repair the front stairs of my house. Jon was prompt, professional and neat. He replaced one of the limestone treads and the bluestone on the landing. He also repointed some of the brick and repaired the walkway at no extra charge! I would definitely recommend him for your next masonry job.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a general contractor?

When starting a home remodel or new construction project, you will probably hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to take a set of building plans and construct them as outlined. The general contractor may help perform the day-to-day building, or they may just hire workers and oversee all the work activities. In either case, the job of the general contractor is to see that your project gets built.

When you have a building project, ask for bids from various contractors. The bids tell you how much each will charge and what their scope of work will be. Once you have selected a bid, you sign a contract with that general contractor outlining the specifics of the project and the milestones during the project when they will receive payment installments. Once the contract is official, the general contractor will bring in their crew to begin construction. The contractor will manage the workers and subcontractors (anyone who doesn’t work directly for their company but that they need to outsource, like a marble installation pro), order all the materials, obtain work permits, and confirm that all the workers and subcontractors are completing their projects as planned. They typically handle all the payments to the workers and subcontractors, and send you invoice. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.  If you are organized and competent to oversee construction projects, and are able to make sure everything is being built properly and meeting code, it’s possible you can be your own general contractor.  

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

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.

Why is property management important?

A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.
