Andy and his team did an absolutely fantastic job! I would highly recommend his company to anyone looking for a first class paint job and painting company. There are very few people left that put their customers needs first, pride themselves on professionalism, and are truly focused on customer service. Patriarch Painting should be your first and only call!

Great job. Gregg and his crew worked really hard on a difficult job that few contractors would do. Gregg was an open communicator who kept me in the loop about the job as it developed, and talked to me before he made any changes to our agreements. I felt like he treated me very fairly, and he and his crew worked really, really hard. Thanks to Gregg and your crew!

Gerry was great to work with; he responded quickly to my request and arranged a time to see our job and give a quote within days. His quote was very detailed, giving a good idea of cost of supplies needed, as well as his estimated labor. In the end, the total was only 7% more than the estimate. Once we gave the go ahead, he was right on time with his estimated start and finish date. Gerry did quality work in repairing rotting beams on a swing set, stripping/sanding/re-staining front porch and railings, fixed sunken patio pavers, repaired a gate, and a few other misc items. I would recommend Gerry and I would use his services again.

Representative promptly visited the house in late February, immediately diagnosed why the roof was leaking and recommended replacing all the shingles. Started the job less than a week later, when weather permitted (i.e. snow had melted). The crew was very polite and considerate, answered all my questions, and very efficiently stripped off the old shingles and replaced with high quality replacement shingles that look a thousand times better. Crew came back two additional times to finish the roof because the job was interrupted by weather and the need to rebuild the chimney. Each time I received courtesy calls from the coordinator telling me when the crew would arrive. The crew left the lawn spotless after each visit. This workers for this business are superbly skilled, very courteous and extremely conscientious. The cost was very reasonable. I would recommend (and in fact have recommended) them with enthusiasm to friends and co-workers for any roofing job .

Christian and Maurice were great! We had a bit of a mix-up at first, but he was incredibly flexible and willing to work with us during a busy day: Labor Day in Minneapolis. They were fast and efficient - our belongings were in safe hands! Their service was great, I'll definitely be using them again if I have to move :)

I had several projects around the house. Handyman matters sends a confimation e-mail a day in advance and has the professional call you themselves to see if you want to discuss your project (s). They sent Mike Burns. He was excellent, friendly, and professional. He gave me a quote that included parts and labor and was able to do the work right away. And the quoted price didn't change! They also guarantee parts and labor for a year.

A bathroom remodel that included gutting everything except the vanity. Jim and those he works with were in constant contact and kept on track as promised with timing of the project. Jim will help you coordinate all materials with the best merchants to ensure the best price. He has relationships with all of them which ensures best prices possible for countertops, cabinets, tile (including design) as well as labor. We had no idea how to approach a bathrom remodel and knew we didn't want to act as our own general contractor. Hiring Jim to oversee it, helped us get the remodel done quickly, with good quality materials at a lower price than we would probably have been able to realize on our own. The tile installer was incrediblly meticulous. It looks perfect throughout the room from the shower to the bathroom floor and other walls. They took extreme care to keep the area clean and always cleaned up at the end of the day. We won't hesitate to work with Jim and Cady Handyman in the future for other remodeling. We highly recommend Jim.

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.
