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 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 would recommend Neil for any handyman work needed around the house. He was able to fix my noisy toilet and dripping faucet in a fast and professional manner. I even had him do an additional project while he was here, adjusting an ill-closing door, and replacing the weather-stripping. His quick response on Thumbtack and accommodating scheduling made the process even easier than anticipated. I will be using Neil for any future projects that come up at the house I need professional assistance with.

Marc was friendly and knowledgeable. He was on time, responsive and reliable. Marc assembled our new Ikea wall storage unit and did a great job. I'd hire him again to work on other "handyman" type projects around our home.

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

This was my first experience using Thumbtack or ever hiring a handyman. Joe was very responsive and made himself available for the job within a couple of days. He and his female companion worked together to hang two large pictures and a (relatively) heavy mirror...I also had several plastic containers full of seasonal clothing that I’d asked to be moved up into our attic. I wasn’t sure if I’d mentioned this to Joe...and when he was finished the hanging job HE asked me if I still needed that done. I was relieved because I really did need it done...I’d hurt my back...but I didn’t want to ask him to do more than the $100 we’d agreed upon or take more time and than he’d planned. I was so relieved! As a single Mom I appreciated his honesty and efficiency. No muss, no fuss!

Paul is the most meticulous and detailed 'handyman' I have ever hired. Paul's work went above and beyond my expectations with his professionalism and expert work. Paul did an amazing job hanging numerous pictures in a specific layout that required an eye for detail. I highly recommend him for any type of work, I have yet to find anyone as good as Paul!

I hired Justin to accomplish a number of handyman projects around my house that had accumulated over time. He looked at my list & gave me a fair estimate for the work and scheduled a date for the work to occur. He showed up on correct date and time and with his assistant accomplished the projects in an efficient manner. The work was done in a professional manner and we have planned a second day for additional outside projects to be done when the weather turns warmer. I found Justin and his assistant Patrick to be pleasant and trustworthy in nature. I would recommend Justin Cameron for handyman type projects. Barbara

Ernie was incredibly responsive and kind. We did run into some difficultly with one job in particular. Mainly a roof that had significant rotting which became apparent as the flashing got pulled away. Not only did we have rotting wood and insulation, Ernie discovered a large carpenter ant nest nestled in the roof along with all the rotting wood. Time will tell as to whether or not all of the issues were completely resolved however I do want to note Ernie's incredibly hard work and dedication to getting the job done. Danielle

I needed two ceiling fans installed within a very short period of time. Akil answered right away, was extremely courteous and professional. He was able to adjust his schedule to get to my project the same day and was more than fair on his pricing. We agreed on a price beforehand, he stuck to it upon completion- absolutely no surprises. He treated my home as if it were his own making sure the mess from the job (dust, wire clippings & debris) was cleaned up before leaving; even cleaning as he went. Bottom line is, as a homeowner, I’ve now found a dependable handyman I know I can trust and that is an invaluable commodity! You won’t be disappointed hiring him for your home projects. Thanks again Akil; my family noticed the new fans immediately at the party and were all very impressed!

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.
