Vickie is just the perfect person to have cleaning our home. She has the energy of the energizer bunny, she's easy to talk to, honest, funny, and has a positive attitude. She's incredibly fast....she accomplished in three hours what would have taken me six (our home is 3400 square feet). Sure, there were a few minor things she missed the first time but she was completely willing to work with us openly about what we wanted done, and what she can do to make that happen while matching the price point we need to meet going forward. She's getting into a routine that will allow for her to do as much as possible with her time at our home. Vickie is also patient and kind with our dog, a huge Italian Mastiff. His slobber and dirt from his paws gets everywhere, so she cleaned spots off cabinets, walls, and is working on cleaning all the baseboards around my home. Really, Vickie is just respectful of everything and everyone in our home and we are so excited we have found someone like her to come bi-monthly.

Had never heard of Diversified Services until I received a phone call as a result of using Thumbtack. The initial service needed was removal of a tree; however, I am using their services for other things...fence repair, landscaping, etc. They are truly diversified! The cost is very reasonable and the work is excellent. The owners are awesome people. There was a small miscommunication; however, their attitude was "let's chat about it and make it right." I see a long "repair" relationship in our future. They were prompt, polite, and very professional. All debris was removed. They provided a sample of what could be expected if the fence was pressure washed after repair - looks like new! I will definitely call them first for any services I need that they provide!

A storm took a tree down in our backyard...halfway. It was a danger to our home, our fence & anyone who wanted to go outside. Mr. Lee came immediately - I am not exaggerating...he was at my home within the hour. He knows trees - 30 years of experience! We are having him come back to take care of others that need to be pruned or removed. He left our property clean & he neatly stacked wood we wanted to keep. He made sure the rest of the tree was at the curb - neatly so it could be picked up without being a mess for the city. He puts thought into everything he does. He gave us great advice to keep some of the wood bc it was a cherry tree - great for the grill! The price was great...he beats everyone by a mile. A side note, he can do anything...not just trees & painting...if you need something, just ask him...including cater a party with the best bbq you have ever eaten! His family is part of his business & they are all wonderful.

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.
