Eric is my go to guy for all my plumbing needs. He came in and helped fix a bathroom that a previous contractor had destroyed at a reasonable and fair price. He is trustworthy, knowledgeable and goes out of his way to accommodate my schedule. I don't even bother bidding projects out anymore. I trust his opinion and his skills. I will be using him exclusively for my future home repairs and plumbing needs.

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!

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.

Neil did an excellent job on our ceiling fan. He is knowledgeable and professional, and could offer advice on the latest Panasonic models. He was very kind and respectful to my 80 year old mother, who supervised the project that afternoon. She felt very safe with him in the house and enjoyed his wit and personality. I recommend Neil to expedite any of your home repair needs. He is a gem!

John and his team were wonderful to work with. They quoted the job fairly, scheduled a time for my “junk” and old hot tub to be removed, they showed up on time, and I came home to a clean area! I couldn’t have asked for an easier experience and had wanted to get rid of that stuff for so long. John was such a pleasure to work with. So nice. Thank you!!

Joe Bono of Northern Restoration quoted me a price and it was a fair price. But when he got to my home he saw what I had for pick up and said that the price was too much and came down on the price. That's a honest person. I plan on using Joe for other projects I have. Thanks Joe, Russ Smith of Lynn, Ma.

Our shower started leaking and Marcos was able to diagnose the problem over the phone and had it repaired in 45 min. He also quoted a fair price, which is more than I've experienced with other plumbers. I would definitely recommend Marvis to anyone!

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.

Joe responded quickly, was completely professional and easy to work with. I will absolutely call Joe again if I need this kind of carpentry/repair house job done. Joe and his assistant (sorry can't recall name) replaced an aluminum siding piece that had blown off and did some gutter repair - not "big" jobs but ones that required professionals in my opinion. Glad to hear of Joe through Thumbtack.

Kyle was great! He was the first to respond to my request, gave a reasonable quote, schedule time for the repair on the same day (day after Christmas), and finished the job in 20 minutes. I highly recommend Kyle as he is skilled in many different areas.

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.

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.
