Venkatt G. says, "Contractor Review for Samuel Construction Group (Sam). Summary: I highly recommend Sam. (Work was done in March 2022) Project Summary: - Install approx. 30ft linear wall to enclose one new room with a closet - Install one french door for room, one swinging door for closet - Remove two lights from ceiling and install cover plate - Install new ceiling light with a switch in closet - Add three outlets with one activated by switch in wall - Paint new wall to match existing color - Install wire shelf - Install same trim and molding to match the existing I reached out to Sam on Friday morning and he came by Friday afternoon to hear my idea and provide me with a verbal estimate before he left and a written estimate on Saturday. Prices quoted were very reasonable. The job involved partitioning the basement to create an additional room (13' x 15') with a closet. I was surprised when he said that he can start the project as soon as Monday and get it done by Friday (5-days). Upon agreement to proceed forward, he showed up promptly on Monday at 8am with his helper Will. Both of them worked each day till the end of the day and I quickly began to see the work progressing forward at an unbelieveble rate. He was promptly there by 8am each day and up until 5pm. He completed the work one day ahead of the schedule and left the job site in an immaculate condition. I am very satisfied with his work. Hard to belive that they were new rooms. When completed, it looked like there were always there as part of the old house. Matched paint to the dot. He did all the electrical work, drywall, framing, etc himself. Overall, I give him a 10 out of 10 rating. Very prompt. Clean and detailed in his work. I highly recommend him to others looking to get some projects done around the house. He has a background in masonry, construction, electrical work, dry-wall, plumbing and more. Give him a call and you will be glad you did."See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does a handyman charge?

Minimum rates for handyman jobs typically range from $60-$100. 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.

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 fees.

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.

Is it worth it to hire a handyman?

It’s worth it to hire a handyman in many cases. For example, you should hire a handyman when the project’s size and scope make it challenging to complete by yourself. These projects may include major home remodels or additions, foundation work or electrical/plumbing/HVAC-related tasks. However, make sure the handyman has the proper credentials or license to perform the necessary work.

You might also want to hire a handyman if a contractor’s price is too high. Handymen often charge less than general contractors, but contractors typically have the required license to perform certain tasks.

And, lastly, think about the complexity of the job and the cost of future repairs. It’s worth it to hire a handyman when the project is complex. Doing something incorrectly can wind up costing more than hiring the pro in the first place.

Does a handyman need to enter my home?

In many cases, a handyman will not need to enter your home for outdoor repairs, but they’ll likely need to enter your home for indoor repairs. With the pandemic’s associated safety guidelines, it’s important that this only occurs for absolutely essential projects. Avoid any physical contact with the handyman if this is the case. Sanitize surfaces, and conduct payment through a digital platform like PayPal or Venmo. Be sure to contact your handyman and develop a plan before the job commences.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a handyman during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Setting up a safe consultation or appointment with a handyman during the COVID-19 pandemic starts with comparing local professionals online. Message or call the handyman to ask about performing a consultation over the phone or, better yet, a video call. This will allow the handyman to assess the problem without increasing the risk of transmission by visiting your home. If the service is essential and the handyman needs to enter your home, you’ll need to take stringent safety measures for the visit. Discuss temporary fixes if possible, and come up with a plan for safety and digital payment.

Can I use digital payments to pay for handyman services?

Many handymen accept digital payments for work done repairing homes. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the urgent need for social distancing, this trend is likely going to increase. Handymen often accept payment through popular platforms like Paypal, Google Pay, Zelle, Venmo, Square Cash and more. 

Consult with the handyman before you begin work to ensure you’ll be able to conduct the transaction safely and in compliance with official guidelines.

How can I find out if a handyman is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Depending on the service needed, a handyman may be considered essential during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can check by visiting your city or state’s government website. In addition, CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage offers national guidelines for determining essential services. Their page delineates 16 essential infrastructure sectors that can continue to operate during the pandemic. But note that not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Do handymen offer remote or virtual services?

Because a handyman needs to be physically present to perform work, they have not traditionally offered remote or virtual services. However, if you come across handyman profiles that state they offer remote services, message the handymen to see what those services include.

Confer with your handyman to see if consulting over video calls is possible. The professional may be able to walk you through performing basic plumbing, electrical, HVAC and other types of repairs around the house. Compare the handymen in your area side-by-side online, and ask whether they’re willing to help remotely.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a handyman when social distancing?

If you hire a handyman, stay 6 feet away from the handyman at all times. If you have an indoor emergency and it’s considered an essential service, take extra social distancing precautions with your handyman. Do not make physical contact, stay at least 6 feet from the handyman, and exchange payment through digital services instead of cash or check. Talk with your handyman and agree on a plan in advance.

Thank you so much for helping with drywall and water damage/mold. It was great bc it allowed us to address the drywall but also treat/remove any old mold. I wouldn’t have had that option with a handyman!

Not only did they respond quickly and come out within a day they figured out a solution that no one else had thought of. Their work was excellent and they were neat and quiet while they worked in the house. The best experience I’ve had with a handyman. I would call them again in a heartbeat. Can’t say enough good things.

I needed 35 cabinet / draw handles and knobs installed, and Marcelo arrived from Titan Remodeling on time for our appointment and had ample tools for the job. He was very thorough and meticulous, and I appreciate his attention to detail. I’m really happy with how my cabinets look, and will hire Titan Remodeling in future for other handyman services.

Todd did an excellent job removing a heavy duty mantle that required drilling on stone before mounting my TV above the fireplace. Other businesses contacted for TV mounting recommended to have a handyman first remove the cemented mantle prior to them mounting my TV. But Todd was willing to come in the house and have a look at the project then came back with the necessary tools to first spend time removing the big mantle before mounting my tv. He also charges reasonable fees by the hour, cannot beat that. Highly recommend.

Edson and his team were great. We had them take out old carpet and put in new vinyl flooring, install new vanities, clean and repair the gutters, and perform some minor plumbing work. They worked within our timeframe (we wanted everything done the week before we moved in) and did high quality work. They even stayed late the last day to ensure everything was wrapped up. As a new homeowner, I’m really happy we found Solution Handyman! If you’re looking to have work done in your home for an affordable price, I highly recommend them.

Cristian and Luis were responsive, reliable and hard-working. I had to have a bathroom remodel finished very quickly and they were able to start immediately and completed quickly. Also, the estimate was very reasonable. I had asked for some extra work and they were accommodating and when the total bill came, they were spot on with the actual cost compared to the estimate and the extra work added to the bill was very fair. It’s difficult to find a good dependable handyman that you feel comfortable working with, and I found this in C&L. I already have other projects with which, I will be asking for their services. The work they did for me was drywall and tiling of floor and walls of a full bathroom and extensive drywall repairs in other areas of the home.
