Mike responded within minutes of my initial request for handyman work. I needed carpentry repair work done on my front-door jam & latch. Mike came over the very next day, assessed the complete problem, and gave a reasonable quote. He returned soon thereafter and finished the work. Thoroughly pleased with this entire transaction.

He's more of a handyman than a full service plumber (for example, he doesn't do clogged drains). But he was prompt, friendly and capable.

I've had Handyman Tom complete 2 projects for me in the last 3 weeks. He installed a new garbage disposal while my husband was on a business trip, and built an awesome washer and dryer pedestal for my new laundry room. Tom communicates well and is very professional. I highly recommend him, and we are happy to have someone we can call.

Mr. Handyman fixed a pocket door for me. He arrived on time and even went to Lowe's to get a part to complete the job. He finished the job in well under 2 hours and since it took less time than he thought it would, he lowered the original price quote. I will definitely use him again.

I'm so satisfied!!!! I requested service one day and received Joe's service the next day. Joe's very professional, thorough, and Ladies....very easy on the eyes. ;-) Joe came in and did above and beyond what was needed. He took the time to explain the work that he did and gave useful tips on the upkeep of my appliances. Being new to town, I can safely say that I have my Handyman in place. Will definitely recommend his services.

Couldn't be more pleased. I had 2 ceiling fans put in and Mr Moon came in very profession and put both fans up in a very timely manner. Did a great job on putting the fans up. He showed up on time and I feel the cost of the job was very reasonable in fact i was expecting to pay more.. I will be calling Moons Painting and Handyman in the near future for other projects.

Couldn’t be happier! After working with Joe only one time, we’ve already decided he’s our guy for our next project. He was responsive and kept communication open and clear while we figured out some of the issues with the project. He was super respectful and made sure the job was done right. We needed to install a new dryer but had an old dodgy copper line that extended almost 20 ft. He installed all new pipe to extend over to where the dryer was and hooked everything up for us. He did a thorough job and we feel much safer now! Definitely a dependable Handyman.

I was the president of a condo association and Tom was our "on-call" handyman/plumber. He was the most reliable and cost efficient guy we have had in years...he beat all prices and came out as soon as he was needed. He handled plumbing emergencies on some late nights and/or weekends without charging us an "emergency plumber fee". He took care of odd jobs, such as re-building and painting mailbox units, took care of light fixtures, sump pumps, tuck pointing, cracks in walls and ceilings, painting, drywall...pretty much anything needed...he worked directly for the condos, as well as work the condo owners would need accordingly. They would hire him for work that needed to be done, which wasn't covered by the association. I would highly recommend Tom for this kind of work, as well as regular contractor or handyman jobs as I have always been overly satisfied with his work, as well as his price.

Scott did a great job in helping to turn our Warren rental property ( of which was returned in very rough shape ) into a clean wonderful home that showed very well once listed. His help with cleaning, painting, deck repairs, and haul-away was and is tremendously appreciated. His help with general recommendations and advice during the project was appreciated as well. Since I needed to work with a trustworthy contractor being remotely located 12 hours away in Atlanta his trust and value was immense. Scott is highly recommended!!

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.
