Nick and his assistant were prompt, professional and did an excellent job. Nick diagnosed some challenging problems and spent the time to repair all the issues. I would hire them again for future projects.

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.

The team was on time and were very nice people. Very friendly. They gave me a package deal on cleaning my home and the carpet. Robert worked hard on the spots in my carpet by hand brushing the spots. He was able to get spots out that Stanley Steemer was not able to remove. thanks Robert and kisha.

Frank was able to come out to my house next day and fix my air conditioner at a very fair price. Highly recommend Frank's services to anyone looking for AC repair. Will also be using him in the future for some skylight replacements.

I worked with this contractor for concrete repair and can not say enough great things about the experience. He was the first contractor to take the time to schedule a free consultation for my project right away. From the onset he was professional and took time to explain what the process would be in detail. The job was completed ahead of schedule and the contractor made sure to keep me informed as to the progress of the job throughout the day and provided picture during and after for my approve of the finished project. Please consider hiring this company. I assure you that you will be well pleased with the quality of his work.

Alex fixed my basement baseboard trim issue that was left over by my previous service man. He did a fine job by customer made the trims and re-stained them. He also repainted part of the floor and walls, and repaired some bad ceiling tiles. He made my basement look nice. In addition, I also hired him to replace blinds in my finished sun-room. He made good suggestions. He also cleaned my yard. All his nice work helped me to land a tenant. His price is reasonable. I will hire him again.

Louie asked us to leave a review. I'm delighted to do so. We met Louie before he was Sentry Construction. Skeptical, we had him paint the laundry room. He did such an outstanding job we had him paint our whole house room by room. Four years later and I have nothing bad to say. He cleaned up everything after himself on a daily basis. Honestly he left my home cleaner than I expected. We anticipated dust or something to become a problem but Louie covered everything in plastic and vacuumed more than his fair share of mess. I never had work done by anyone who has their own cordless vacuum, forever a lasting impression!! Louie is a very meticulous in everything he did. The quality of the work was beyond my expectations.

Adam repaired my wooden fence that the wind blew down. He installed new posts and it looks better than it was before. He came out to survey the premises within 24 hours and was on time. Would recommend.

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.
