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.

I thought there was a bigger problem with my bathtub faucet then there actually was. Was quoted a high price and paid less than half for the repair. Seems the only thing wrong was some washers that needed to be replaced. I truly appreciate the help, although I think the price for replacing 3 washers was astronomical. We all have to make money some how, but I only hope this quick fix will not cause more headaches.

Steve is a true professional. He contacted me and scheduled the repair right away. He communicated well every step of the way. He even sent me post work instructions. I believe his prices were very fair and he diagnosed and repaired my tub issues perfectly. I’d certainly hire him again.

Genie in a Bucket completed a very thorough deep cleaning and brought their own supplies. Living in California, I contacted Joni to clean my daughter's home in Ypsilanti as a special gift. She was very professional and responsive to my phone calls and text messages. I felt very comfortable hiring her after she answered my questions. She worked out a time with my daughter, was prompt and I think charged fairly. An additional plus was that she sent photos of the rooms along the way of cleaning. I visited a few days after the cleaning and found the home as I had hoped. It was clean and fresh. I only wish she worked in California! Thank you Genie in a Bucket.

I was very pleased with the work Robert and his partner from Freedom Painting did for me in December of 2015. I needed some drywall repair, some small painting touchups and some wood trim repair done. They did a wonderful job. I could tell they took pride in their work and were very professional.They cared about perfection. The wall repairs turned out much better then I ever expected they would... you couldn't tell there had been a problem before.I was pleased to learn they do much more then minor repairs - they paint houses, etc. I have been telling friends about their work and would definitely use their services in the future. THANK YOU Freedom Painting, Robert and your partner(sorry - I forgot your name). They helped me out with very short notice and were very prompt!!!

I used Anvil to complete a front porch repair. He removed existing brick, fixed the foundation, and relayed tile and brick to repair it. He was on time, affordable, and professional. I would hire him again to do other household repairs.

Joe is detail oriented and communicative. He does great work. He changed several doors in my house including repairing my old front door which looks like new now. He can tackle any job big or small and always finds solutions which was great for an old home like mine. I definitely recommend Joe and will be calling him in the future for other repairs.

Kal is a very respectable young man! He's great at what he does and also made me feel very comfortable as the woman at home waiting for his repair service. I have no problem with referring him or recommending him to my friends and family and also using him again for future needs that he can take care of. Thank you Thumbtack, for recommending Kal!

Scott and his partner did a remodeling job for us. They did the demolition, then did the drywall, painted and added a tub surround and new sink vanity. They installed a new light fixture, too. Then, they put in a new ceiling in our kitchen using drywall, painting, and added a new light fixture. We would hire them again! They did a great job at a reasonable price. My olny suggestion is that they should change the name of their company. They do construction. My sister was concerned because the name says Scotty Mobile Repair. They are more of a construction company and I am sure that they can fix a mobile phone, but we were very pleased with the work they did on an old 1922 home.

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.
