I had Jeremy out to fix a dryer at my rental. The problem seemed simple at first but ended up being a bigger challenge. Jeremy was very knowledgeable and was able to make the repair the same day at an affordable rate. These guys are honest and hard working. You should hire them.

I used Besom for cleaning during my move out of my apartment. This company does excellent work! Ceiling fans appliances, fireplaces, and hard to reach places were included. Trustworthy service at an affordable price. This was my first time using Thumbtack to find any type of service, and I have to say I scored big time with Besom!

Todd was on time, did quality work for an affordable price and in the time stated to do the work. I hired him to install a very large 23 foot long kids playground set. I was very please with him and would use him again in a heartbeat.

Kelly is the guy you are looking for when it comes to any of the handyman services. He and team will go above and beyond for all the fixes - electric/woodwork/concrete/drywall/Carpentry/mold/haul away stuff - just about everything. His prices are reasonable and they do help pick up stuff from home depot/lowes which is a big plus. They would also shop on your behalf as sometimes we dont have the correct understanding on what materials to buy. Highly Recommend.

The handyman was a little late arriving, but he did a good job and even did another small job because the main project was finished in a timely manner.

Porter and his business TTMB Home Improvements are amazing! Porter is always easy to get a hold of, quick to respond, on time and does fabulous work. He has painted my kitchen, cabinets and my china hutch. The work was quickly completed on a tight schedule before a holiday weekend. He was kind, did not cause any disruption to our home or lives during the job, and was affordable. Porter and his team are so amazing I refer him to friends and clients whenever I can. You should definitely give him a call if you're looking for quality work!

I hired Mark to remove my old kitchen sink faucet and install a new one. He arrived on time and replaced the faucet in a timely manner. The previous homeowner did a very poor job with the original faucet installation, so the removal ended up being a much bigger job than we originally thought. He stuck to his original quote and on his way out he also repaired my doorbell for no additional charge. I will definitely hire Mark for future handyman services. Highly recommend him and very reasonable.

Kyle from Elements Chimney swept my flue today. He was very professional and made sure to move items carefully and kept his work area as clean as possible. I just purchased this home and Kyle was able to give me all the information I needed to operate the fireplace properly. I am pretty knowledgeable about fireplaces in general, but Kyle was able to tell me some things about this particular model that I did not know and I really appreciate that. He also was very honest with what needed to be repaired soon and other things that could be put off for a while. Overall I will use this company again and would highly recommend using them if you're on the fence. My experience, they were on time, affordable, honest and trustworthy what else can you ask for?

Shane did an excellent job from start to finish! Reliable, friendly, and honest as they come! He installed our new windows and was very knowledgeable so he was able to explain all the differences between the types of windows to help us make an informed decision! His prices were SO much better than 2 other quotes...very happy we were referred to use him! Our friends used him before and also highly recommended him to us. He also did a few handyman repairs in our basement and will be coming back in a couple months to remodel the basement! He even gave some ideas on design plans already...very helpful! Highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

He painted my grandma's barn, and cut down a tree in her front yard. He did a great job at both jobs. We will be having him do more work around the house in the future.

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.
