Interior painting, Jorge did an outstanding job. He arrived when promised and worked into the evening to get the job done. Professional and works very hard to make sure the customer is satisfied. For all the painting he did in my house I expected to pay much more than what he charged me. I would highly recommend Jorge to do painting or any other handyman services that are needed.

Jorge did a great job assembling my furniture and installing my screen doors. When we realized one of the doors wouldn’t work, he suggested an alternative and even helped me do the exchange. Definitely a good handyman to have around!

Since my husband is seriously ill, I really needed to find a knowledgeable and trustworthy handyman to help me with a wide range of tasks. David started working on projects for me recently. He's extremely hardworking and reliable. I will be using him on a monthly basis or more.

The guy who owns swift waters guttersdid an incredible job installing the new gutters. And the quote was excellent. I would recommend that anyone call this business first for gutters and just about anything since he is also a handyman.

Bob was excellent, I called on a Saturday and he was the only person who called me back right away. He made himself available for the following day as this was my only free time. Bob organized two areas of my house that I have been struggling with for over one year!! I plan to have him back over for handyman services in the near future. Bob works with a great detail of Professionalism, customer satisfaction, an organization.

Michael offered great suggestions for paint that worked out incredibly well. My apartment is older and the walls were dull and showed their age. However, after Michael was done with them my apartment looks like a totally different place. He knew exactly what type of paint to use for each surface. I highly recommend Elite Handyman Services.

I hired Jason for helping me with my new home misc handyman tasks. He is a very responsive and thoughtful professional, sharing with me many insights, even at my shop-around stage. Jason came to my home given a short notice when I nailed down the date for handyman's work, right on time, completed all tasks in a timely manner. Though I hope I won't have too many future handyman jobs, I know I will go to Jason first next time.

I have used Browns HandyMan Services for several years now. He has replaced windows for me, painted many rooms and all the trim inside our home. Did major painting on the outside of our home as well. He did a wonderful job on the remodel of our master bathroom, which was not easy because we had to meld the old with the new. He is currently building an English Greenhouse for me. I find him to be very detailed, works very hard and in a timely matter. The site is always kept clean. I have never been disappointed and he exceeds our expectations. He is very honest and trust worthy. I call him first with my ongoing projects and home improvement needs. Rena' - Canton, CT

We initially contacted Bob to help with a couple of small household projects. We ended up not needing one of them, but he did the other promptly and well and communication was timely. One note: we did have a misunderstanding in that we'd hoped he could help us with a project that required ladder work, but he doesn't do that. Definitely call on him for small handyman jobs though!

    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.
