I received same day service to hang 3 mirrors in our apartment. Shujaur was punctual. He was precise about the placement of the mirrors and made sure to ask my opinion before drilling any holes into the walls. And he was able to execute the job quickly. I would happily use Shujaur again for his handyman services and I would recommend him to others.

I engaged with Thunder Landscaping to do regular maintenance on my yard. Anthony was very prompt in following up on the request and showing up right away to provide an estimate. He was clear in explaining the things that will be covered and more importantly not covered. He provided a great rate for the spring cleaning along with regular cuts. The next days, his crew did a terrific job with the spring cleaning and the yard looks as good as new. You could see how they care about you as their guy went over the patio and deck with the blower as well! I would recommend them for your yard work.

Everything you could ask for and more! I usually never write reviews, but when it comes to hiring people and it companies to do work I felt important to share. We all know how difficult it is to find a good contractor. Elsayed came out on a Sunday and worked tirelessly until the job was done. Installed 3 toilets, dishwasher, garbage disposal, 2 faucet fixtures. Also corrected numerous plumbing issues in the process. From start to finish he let me know what was going on every step of the way. His recommendations were spot on as he came across other issues throughout the project. I always felt confident everything would get done right and did it ever! Never strayed from the up front and honest pricing. I’ve already rehired Elsayed to do more work in my home as OSA is a full service general contractor. Hire with absolute confidence!!!

Sam was great! My TV looks really nice mounted on my wall; plus he repaired some nitpicking things around the house like my doorbell, front door, cabinets, closet door...that needed repairing since I purchase the house. He is an all-around maintenance and handy man. He will be my go-to-guy from now on.

I appreciate when someone says they will arrive at a certain time, and they do! Bob was friendly, courteous and listened to my requests. He suggested a way to fix the door and when he was done, the door worked again. He was fast, efficient and his hanyman services are set at a reasonable price. I asked him to come back to fix more of all those odds and ends that I can never get to.

Matt and his guys could not have been better. They got here when committed, were exceptionally polite and very skilled at all they did. They finished ahead of schedule and the work area was cleaner than when they started the siding repair. D.E. Carroll is my new go to place for construction and repair needs.

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 were very happy with the results of dealing with Kajer Construction. They did a great job in putting up our fence. In fact, many people have commented on how nice it looks; All except for the one person who is the reason I needed a fence for....my miserable bastard nosy neighbor. Not only was Billy, the owner, a pleasure to deal with, but he did the job in a professional and timely manner; especially since it was built during the hottest grueling days of this past Summer. It's commendable that the job was completed under those adverse and unfavorable circumstances and I highly recommend the expert services of Kajer Construction to anyone.

RJ Development did a great job on our electrical needs in an attic that had very little power. Pricing was fair and the job was done same day when he came to quote it. He worked hard until the job was done into the night and completed everything he said he'd do. After happily wiring and hanging 2 large light fixtures and adding several electrical outlets, we were very pleased with his work and had him return form another larger project a few weeks later to include running another circuit for more power (from basement to attic!) and installing two floorboard heaters. He worked and did it all in a day and did a professional job that works great and is discreet in keeping with the rustic decor. Very fairly priced and worked quietly and consistently until the job was complete. We're happy with our project and would hire again. Definitely recommend.

Jairo and his team were phenomenal. I received a prompt quote soon after posting my request and set up a time for the work to be done. Jairo was very communicative as we tried to work out the price and time to come. His team removed larger branches from a tree I cut down over the summer - as well as general leaf removal. They arrived on-time and worked non-stop to finish in a timely manner. I highly recommend Acorn Lawn and Landscaping for any yard care. You will not be disappointed.

I had a great experience working with Russell. I decided last-minute that I wanted help connecting my new sink following a counter install in lieu of waiting for my handy uncle who was out-of-town to return a week later. Russell was quick to respond to my post, and was very friendly and professional. We agreed on a time for the next morning, and he showed up right on-time. Russell did great work installing my stainer basket, re-routing the PVC piping, and connecting my faucet. The job was finished in an hour. He was great about asking questions to consider what I was planning to do with the sink in the future (dishwasher, garbage disposal) so set up the piping best for the long-run. I'd highly recommend his services, and will use him again when in-need!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. Fore more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
