We hadn't painted in 14 yrs, and were putting it off due to our nervousness re: price and quality of work...but on a whim, I went to thumbtack and am so glad we did! Reitmeier was quick to respond, came over immediately to give me a (very reasonable) quote, and to my surprise was completely turnkey ... They were quick, helpful, clean, responsive and affordable. So happily surprised! Thanks so much!

Steve really is an awesome handyman! He put a bathroom door on, a towel rack, bathroom fan and fixed a toilet leak. He really knows what he is doing and he has such a positive personality. He answered my emails right away and was very punctual and reliable. He was a perfect handyman to work with and his work quality was really done. I can't say anything bad about him and will hire him again for sure.

Donald White is wonderful. Though I had accepted his bid for a variety of tasks, including powerwashing the deck, it turned out to be too late in the season to stain the deck, so he lowered the price and took on a number of smaller tasks instead. He saw what needed to be done and agreed to come back at no charge when the carpet runner I had purchased for stairs turned out not to be the best idea. He reattached a set of stairs that I didn't even realize were unattached from the wall on one end. He goes above and beyond. Donald White is definitely at the top of my list of people to call for all kinds of handyman jobs in the future.

Shae was quick to respond and the price was hard to beat. He clearly explained what had to be done, showed up right on time, and was done and cleaned up quickly. The work passed a home inspection later that day. Easy, affordable, solid work; give him a call.

Dusty is a great guy and a true pro! He came over to our house within 24 hours of requesting a quote, and then squeezed us in between projects because we are having a baby and were under a time crunch with our projects. The trim looks fantastic and he also recommended a shoe trim finish on our wood floor, which took the rooms to a whole other level. The price was affordable and both my wife and I could not be happier with our decision to use DF Carpentry. Justin -

We hired Kel to take care of a few important baby prep projects at our home. He helped us install new baby gates in three different places, as well as fixed a wobbly door knob for our garage entry door. Kel was courteous, highly skilled, and able to make adjustments on the fly to help get our project wrapped up as promised. In addition, he was very friendly with our puppy and made us feel comfortable having him in our home. I would highly recommend Kel to anyone that is looking for a skilled handyman. Thanks Kel!

This is a Handyman Reference for Richard (Rick) Toboz. I have known Rick of nearly 30 years. His expertise in home ownership/handyman repair rivals general contractors. Neighbors, including me, seek his input and sometimes assistance, when tackling home projects. He has the tools and knowledge to fix/repair/build virtually any home project. And I will add he does not use a “that’s good enough” phrase – his projects are ALL completed with an excellent finished touch. I have consulted him on a few projects and would not hesitate to consult nor use him on any future home improvements

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

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.

Why is property management important?

A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.

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.
