I had a leak caused by a handyman's work that ran from under my kitchen sink through the sealing of my basement. Eric came on Thanksgiving Day to repair the problem. I have an older house. He even changed some of the tubes that were wearing out. It was clear from the work he did that the handyman tried to take short cuts and I payed the price. Eric stayed until the work was done. He tested the system several times to make sure there were no more leaks.. and there haven't been any. I also found his prices to be reasonable. All in all, what was a nightmare ended up being a good experience. I would definitely use him again.

I had a great TV installation experience with John. He answered questions quickly ahead of the appointment, made wires and big boxes like a router disappear behind the installation, and was clean even taking trash with him. He also went above and beyond by helping me secure a curio cabinet to the wall - something I'd been wanting to do for a year. I recommend hiring John for TV mounting work, and he's probably available for other handyman tasks too.

Shujaur Rehman arrived exactly on time and he was supremely efficient and affable. I hired him to do some furniture assembly and to move some things that were too heavy for me. In the future, I will absolutely hire him to do other jobs around my apartment -- various repairs, painting of some walls, and hanging of artwork. I recommend him highly and enthusiastically. I am so glad to know that I can call on him in the future!

John was great! He responded quickly to my inquiry and came over the next day to address a range of electrical issues (fixed back porch light, fixed motion detection light, fixed a light switch that wasn’t sitting properly in the switch box) and other random needs ( e.g., fixing latch on backyard gate, fixed a bedroom door latch so the door could close). What I really appreciated is his explanation of everything that he was doing. He even ran out to pick up a piece I needed from Home Depot. His pricing was fair and work quality was great. I will definitely use him again as my go-to electrician/handyman. Thanks John

John was everything that I was hoping for. He was able to do the handyman carpentry work that we needed. He installed some stair railing's and put in some doorframes and installed baseboards. His price was extremely fair I felt like I more than got my moneys worth. I've never felt that I've gotten my moneys worth out of a contractor the way I have with him. I look forward to using him again.

Steve helped me get my son moved into off campus housing by assembling our Ikea furniture, (an entertainment center, coffee table, nightstand, and desk). Additionally, he helped us out with a multitude of small repairs that were needed including replacing a toilet seat, changing front door locks, and replacing a light socket. He was punctual, professional and took pride in his work. Everything was completed with care and to perfection! He knows so much about so many things, that we only needed to have the 1 handyman help us with our projects. I highly recommend Steve for your projects. We will definitely be using him again in the future.

Jeff was easy to correspond with, showed up a little early to get set up and adeptly completed our furniture assembly. He was able to finish in a little over 3 hours what would have taken my husband and I two days. He was also neat and organized, which I really appreciate. I would highly recommend Jeff for your handyman needs!

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 Mead Handyman Service to clean and stain the back deck of my home along with a tree house and swings in the backyard and I am very happy with the results. Both the deck and the tree house look great and Matt was very easy to work with - very responsive via email, text or phone. I would definitely recommend hiring Mead Handyman Service for an outdoor staining/painting project.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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 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.

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.

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.
