Nick came out to me in Dupont Circle even though it was Labor Day. He was prompt, polite and very professional. He repaired faucets in the kitchen and two bathrooms. He also fixed leaky bathtub and shower heads. Finally he determined where there was a leakage in my dishwasher. I checked his work and the problems were corrected. When we were missing a part, he found an open hardware shop and got there and back in no time. I appreciate his work and would use him again for any plumbing work.

Eagle Home improvements did a fantastic job repairing a pipe that burst due to faulty labor from my home builder. They showed me the damage, repaired it quickly, and ensured I knew how to properly shut off the water in the future. I will definitely use them again in the future. They were easy to work with and communicated clearly through Thumbtack throughout the process. I wish every service provider were as easy to work with as Eagle Home.

I had a gas fireplace installed two years ago. Another contractor did the basic frame and sheetrock around the fireplace but didn't finish the job. Jenrri met with me in person to assessed the job and give a quote for the work. Jenrri was pleasant and professional and my two Westies both liked him. If they didn't like him I wouldn't have hired him. He said the front area around the firebox would need to have the sheetrock replaced with cement board. I was glad he knew this because not having the right materials could be a fire hazard. After meeting with him. I decided to hire him and planned for him to come Feb. 16-19, 2016 to do this job. He did this job with another worker named Melby. Jenrri and I had to buy materials from the store the first day, but Melby stayed and started working. He removed the sheetrock and also cut boards for the shiplap look I wanted on the upper front and sides of the fireplace. Jenrri and Melby completed cutting and installing about half of the boards the first day. They laid tile on the hearth and around the firebox. I had picked large tiles for the hearth and small tiles to go around the firebox. The small tiles took more time to cut and install. Some of the tile around the firebox doesn't lay completely flat because of the screws for the cement board and because the framing around the firebox wasn't level. If I had to pick again I would have picked larger tiles to go around the firebox. They would have been easier to install and wouldn't have shown that the firebox wasn't completely level. After the tile and boards were installed they painted all the boards and the two walls on each side of the fireplace. Then installed the mantle and touched up the painting. They did a very nice job cleaning up when the work was done and even put furniture and a rug back in place. They also completed the job on time. I am happy with my finished fireplace. It looks beautiful. Both Jenrri and Melby work hard and do a good job. Maybe if Jenrri did the whole project instead of finishing someone else's work it would have been perfect. I would hire him again and I would recommend him to others.

First off: great quality. I don't think I could have asked for a better realization of my plans for my bathroom remodel, which included extensive tile work and construction of a new closet. Pricing was reasonable; they were in the middle of the estimates that I got. That being said, there are a couple of negatives. The schedule was quoted for ten days, but it took sixteen. I did need to take half of one of the days originally scheduled to go into the office to support a client meeting, but a week's extra labor time to finish seemed excessive to me. Especially since after the original two weeks were finished, I had limited flexibility at work and needed to push work off to weekends. All told, with my restrictions at work, it took an extra two weeks beyond what was expected. Part of the problem was punctuality: workers were frequently late, so less got done each day. I also asked to keep a couple of pieces from the demo of the original bathroom that I never got. Overall, I would recommend this contractor if you have a reasonably flexible schedule. They truly do beautiful work, and I'm ultimately very happy with how my bathroom turned out. My designs were executed very nicely. I was just a little disappointed that it took so long.

The workers did a very good job. Most importantly, when I had a small problem with the work they came back promptly and resolved it. Would definitely hire them again.

I initially hired Henry to complete some closet and cabinetry work and changed it to tile work I wanted done in the family room and foyer. He is very skilled and careful in his application. His work product is excellent and he is pleasant to work with. I recommend hiring Henry for various home improvement projects. However be certain to confirm upfront that the price quoted is an all-inclusive price. This will avoid any confusion at project completion regarding material vs. labor costs. Other than this one issue, his service is excellent.

This is the first time using this professional handyman and the Thumbtack resources. My husband and I were impressed with Michael's work, his suggestions, his professionalism, and punctuality. He gave us a quote for materials and labor, a start and finish date timeline and he completed the work on schedule. We are glad we chose Michael to do this work and would recommend him to others. When we have future work in our home, we will hire Michael again. M/M DePriest

My chimney cap came off and was damaged, bent, and misshapen. The cost to replace with a new one by the chimney co. was $300 for material only. Mr. Yellet basically rebuilt the cap by installing new wire screening, reshaping, and connecting all parts securely. The rebuilt is much better than the original and the labor and material cost a lot less than a new chimney cap (which didn't include labor).

J-Construction is awesome!!!They were very friendly, did great work, and were very reasonable. It's scary when you use these services because you never know what you may get. J-Construction relieved all my fears and exceeded all my expectations. Jaime understood the scope of what I was trying to do and knowing I was on a limited budget, made helpful suggestions that I hadn't thought of that saved me money. They did absolutely beautiful work; I am happy to have found a contractor that can do so much and that I can trust. I was having such bad luck with contractors that I feel so lucky to have found them. I plan to use them for any and all future projects. I highly recommend J-Construction, you wont be disappointed.

Curtis so far has remodeled one bathroom for me. His crew laid a beautiful checkerboard ceramic tile floor, replaced the vanity, vanity top, mirror, and toilet, and painted and installed all new bars and a light fixture. They are honest, hard-working, and tidy workers. They laid drop cloths on floors to keep them from getting dirty and hauled away all trash. They are great at listening to what the customer wants and fulfilling those requests. They are also punctual. I love the bathroom and cannot wait for them to begin work on remodeling my master bathroom!

I recently had damage to my roof after windstorm Riley, so I called A&A and got Jose on the phone. I told him my issue and he assured me he would come out the next day. As promised, he arrived at the scheduled time and assessed the damage. He gave me a good estimate, fair prices on parts and labor. The work was done timely and with great quality. I am very happy with A&A service and I will definitely call Jose for future home improvements or repairs.

Ixin and his helper installed crown moulding in a bedroom and 2 bathrooms. He arrived for an estimate and told me exactly how much moulding to buy and what the labor cost would be. He arrived the next day on time and did a great job installing the moulding. He even painted it for a discounted price. They were done with the whole job in 8 house and left the house very clean. I would highly recommend Ixin and will use him for future projects.

I decided to go with Plumbing Solutions to replace both of my toilets because they offered one year warranty on labor and their price was competitive with the other companies on Thumbtrack. I highly recommend for future plumbing needs. They were able to accommodate my work schedule and pick up my toilets from Lowes.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
