The serviceman from Cutting Edge cleared a tub drain for me. He arrived at the agreed upon time, was polite, and got the job done. It took about 1/2 hour. I would not hesitate to recommend to friends or hire again.

Jacob was great with email communication. He gave me his honest assessment of my project and didn't try to talk me into anything more expensive. He stayed within and even under my budget for this project (driveway retaining wall). I love the results! He also showed up when he said he would and the work was completed on time. I would definitely recommend Easy Landscaping!

I had my interior trim and doors installed and painted. I had started the process a couple years ago, but was having difficulty finishing the project with 3 young boys and all there activities. I hired Adventure 25 to come out and give a bid and they could start the project in about a week. The first part of the process was to finish the trim work and rip all the basement trim out and a couple of doors that had not been replaced yet. The trim work was done in a couple of days. The painting was delayed because of rainy weather. This is where the stress begins. The prep work that comes before painting can be a lot of work and time consuming. There was little to no prep of the trim. Lots of missed nail holes, lots of missed caulking and the stuff that was done was very poor. I was told that this is high quality paint and it will cover in one coat. I know better. It can take several coats to make the white trim look good. There was paint all over the wood floors, tile in kitchen, paint on the cabinets, paint on my trees outside, paint on the concrete driveway, paint on my fire pit. There seemed to be no care in the world. Jaimie kept telling me that we are not painters. I understand that but my 5 year could of done better. It was supposed to be rolled and instead there was pain brush marks all the trim. The one painter said he thought it would look cute to but swirls with his brush on the top of all the door trims. I met with Jaimie 4 different times to which he said how do I make this right? I would go through things with him and come home at the end of the day to find more of a mess and continued poor quality work. I have never seen anything like this. He would say it would be fixed but I don't think he would watch over his workers and forget to tell them things. I am stressed out beyond believe as my hope was to have this finished to spend more time with my kids. Instead I have to redo most of it. I had another contractor come out and told me it would be about 10 thousand to fix. He never had seen such poor quality work. I would not recommend him to my worst enemy. Very nice person but I think he was over his head and always in a rush, hence the poor quality work. Since I cant pay 10 thousand to someone to fix it, I am now looking at a year or so to fix my trim. Very frustrated and angry customer.

Larry updated our 27 year old original deck. He guided us on design and materials --presented several options and worked with our budget. He was meticulous, and dedicated to our project. His work is top quality. The deck is large: second story, 12' x 30' with stairs, railings, and gate. He completed the project on time- and communicated with us thoughout the construction. We are so pleased with our new, updated deck! Thank you, Larry.

I needed someone to fix some fence posts and a gate that was sagging. Reid responded quickly and gave me a very reasonable quote. I am thrilled with the work he did. Great work, great price, done quickly, even ended up a bit lower than his original quote as it took him less time than he thought. Reid is a man of many talents, and I now have him lined up for several more projects at my house. Great handyman, highly recommended.

Brian redid the roof on our spa/jacuzzi. He also repaired our patio roof and our side gate. He was very honest, professional and work was completed in the timeframe expected.

Allan was great. Helped fix our gate latch and it works better than it did when it was first installed.

Doug's work has been fantastic. He has patiently answered all of out questions and helped us decide based upon our needs. We needed to replace our deck and decided to expand it as well as go minimum maintenance. We also have two dogs who are home and Doug kept the yard picked up throughout the whole project to make it safe for the dogs. He communicated well to make sure there were no issues with the dogs getting out through an open gate. He helped us pick a product that would hold up to the dogs. Kept the stairway blocked off to keep the dogs from getting in trouble. I will hire him again for any additional projects we may have.

Old hot tub and deck had to be removed and replaced with new composite deck with wrap around step. Front section of privacy fence with gate also needed to be replaced. Both projects turned out beautiful! Recommended Custom One - Dennis to neighbor and brother in-law. Both need work on their decks.

Nick did a great job for us. We had a leak in a tub/shower that had ruined the ceiling and wall in the lower level bath shower. And our master bath shower needed to be redone also because the grout was falling out.. We had some water damage on one wall in our family room and we needed to have a new door installed at the bottom of our basement stairs. Plus we needed a new driveway, porch and sidewalk and new gutters. Nick was able to get the plumbers, painters, cement and gutter people in to do their work exactly when they were needed as well as the cultured marble installer. Nick did all of the demo and rebuilding of the showers and tile installation himself. It all took about 6 weeks. Part of that time was to finish one bathroom before proceeding to the other 2 so we would have one usable bathroom at all times. I felt I had an open line of communication with Nick the whole time. We couldn't be happier with the results.

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.
