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 had a last minute need to move a sofa up to a second floor apartment. I contacted First Service USA. They responded within minutes and were available the next day. Ralf and Gabriel showed up early and were extremely professional and helpful. Not only did they carefully move the furniture, but they assembled all the electrical in the recliners, without even being asked. They did a great job ane at a more than fair price. We will definitely be hiring them again for a number of home improvement projects we’ll have coming up. Great job!

Antonio's Painting/Contracting was fantastic. He is an excellent painter with honestly perfect cutting. He truly takes pride in his craft. From the beginning he was extremely professional and went right to work. He also cleaned every speck so that you would never know he had been there. I was truly impressed. I always feel a little nervous hiring contractors, but I immediately felt at ease and I felt completely comfortable having him work while we were all home despite a busy Sunday with kids and dogs all being their usual selves.

Dan responded immediately to my service request and arrived within a couple of hours which is outstanding for HVAC professionals. I usually have to wait for a few days especially during hot weather. He quickly diagnosed what turned out to be a complicated/non-routine problem. The repair was done with a fair price, explained well, and overall I could not be more satisfied. Do not hesitate to hire Dan Farrell- you'll be very happy with his professionalism and quality of work.

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!

David was very thorough. He articles on time with all the proper equipment. Did a great job. He didn't just fix the drainage issue, he made sure that all the drains in the home were draining properly. I also work from home and he was very considerate of that and minimizing noise and let me know when I may be interrupted. I really appreciated that.

Steve showed up on a terrible weather day to give me an estimate, driving a fair distance just to get to my home. He was prompt with his quote, and answered in writing any questions I had about my job. He showed up when he said he was going to to start the repair of my front steps and above all that, did an excellent job. He was easy to work with, stands behind his work said he would come back if needed. Would definitely hire him again.

I contacted this vendor to repair cracks in our foundation. They were able to provide an accurate assessment of the needed repairs. The repair was more involved than what was seen. They vendor was prepared. Once the repair was completed, my husband was very pleased. I would recommend this vendor and would hire them again.

Cleynira made time the same day I reached out, met me at the house, I showed home some areas in need of repair and he said, "No problem, I can start tomorrow." He and his crew arrived the next day as stated and finished the following morning. All cleaned up and very pleasant throughout. Very please with his quick response, and fast work.

Dave and his team were great. He explained the problem with my fence and how he could permanently fix. They got the work done within one week of quote. My newly strengthened fence has held up great with this most recent nor easter. The cost was very reasonable with an excellent finished product. I am so pleased with Dave and his team that they will be back in a few weeks to repair the remaining sections.

As a new homeowner, I cannot tell you how grateful I am to have an electrician as wonderful as Pete. We have had our fare share of awful contractors over the last few months, but Lev Electric is not one of them! I will forever refer to Pete as 'My electrician'! This was the second time I have had Lev Electric do work in my home and Pete was able to squeeze me in around a busy schedule and on short notice. Lev Electric will forever be my 'go to' and I will recommend to anyone and everyone in need of an electrician.

I’m so glad to have connected with Jay. He came to quote a fence repair project and I was delighted to find that his skill set extended way beyond fencing. I’ve now also hired him to rebuild deck stairs as well as replace a kitchen interior wall and exterior window sill, both damaged by ice dams. Jay’s pricing is extremely fair, work is thorough and his communication is timely. I highly recommend him for any jobs you have around your home!

I was frightened and apprehensive about the day my furnace would decide to go to the furnace Cemetery. Well that day happened on Friday October 13th. The furnace clearly malfunctioned and I was forced to replace it. On that very same day I use Thumbtack to locate a technician, in less than 72 hours I had been contacted by Mike at TopKnotch, had an appointment scheduled and had a brand new furnace and thermostat installed. It was absolutely painless, definitely affordable, and literally one of the most positive experiences I have ever had with a home repair.

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.
