John was very nice, professional, and a very good handyman. He fixed hinges on a shed door and a latch on a storm door, and sanded part of a desk. Efficient, very experienced, and able to anticipate possible problems. Cheerfully went to Home Depot to pick up a part he needed. Overall excellent. My only complaint is that he was 1/2 an hour late, which was annoying, and did not call on the way to let us know, and didn't mention it when he arrived. Otherwise, top notch. We would recommend him and use him again.

They're good people. They actually did my kitchen twice because the first time wasn't right. I respect that and recommend them to anyone looking for handyman services.

Mr. Santos did a wonderful job installing tile in my kitchen and powder room. He was professional, ON TIME, and went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with the job. Mr. Santos IS a professional flooring installer not a fly by night handyman who does tile on the side. I've already recommended him to my friends and neighbors.

You can't do better than Gillaspie Handyman Building & Maintenance. Nick Gillaspie is a true professional with an artist's eye. He recently completed a job for our family, rebuilding our house in Dilworth which was over 100 years old and in very rough condition. Before we started with Nick, a real estate agent told us that it was a tear-down. Now that Nick has finished his work, it's structurally sound and beautiful. As someone who's done a little bit of construction and carpentry myself, I know good work when I see it. Nick can do just about anything in the building trades himself and do it well: frame and finish carpentry, drywall, flooring, tile work, painting, roofing, landscaping. But, when extra help is needed, he hires the best. His crews are mature, very hard working and fun to hang out with. Nick himself is a pleasure to work with, a really nice guy with a good sense of humor. He's a family man with a serious work ethic. He talked through different possibilities for solving construction problems and cleared every major decision with me in advance. He worked hard to find the least expensive solution to problems that could have been costly. And he came up with creative ideas for how to make a very old house not just functional, but a real pleasure to look at and live in. I'd work with him again any time, for any kind of job. If you're looking for someone for any job, large or small, and would like a reference about Nick Gillaspie and Gillaspie Handyman Building & Maintenance, please email me at with your phone number, and I'll give you a call.

I highly recommend Steve Ullius for handyman services and more. He was very responsive on short notice and helped me today by hanging a very large and heavy mirror in my dining room. He also hung 3 sets of curtain rods from Restoration Hardware at the top of high plaster walls. They all look great! Steve also gave me advice on safely hanging artwork near a power source. He was very careful with my belongings, which were everywhere since I just moved in. He also cleaned up everything when he was finished. I will be calling him again!

I can't say enough fabulous things about Geoff. He was quick to respond, well presented, on time, communicated very well. We needed a LONG list of SMALL tasks done from securing a light switch to patching a hole in the ceiling, matching and touching up old paint, caulking around the front door, filling in grouting in the bathroom, etc. to ready our house to sell. He worked around our schedule, showed up when he said he would, finished when he said he would, was neat and well organized with his billing. The one item that he could not fix (which he told us upfront he was concerned about) he deducted from the final bill. Call this guy! Hire this guy! We put our house on the market and had a contract in 48 hours. Thanks Geoff. Wish you could move with us. You would be my forever handyman!

Jeff is an awesome handyman. He was professional and a pleasure to be around. He came right on time and finished the project in a timely matter. We hired him to fix our back door and he did exactly that to a tee. He even showed me how to fix it for the next time so I won't have to hire someone going forward if the door becomes an issue again. All around solid individual and is well worth the hire!

I unhesitatingly recommend Daniel Wilson to anyone in need of handyman services. Daniel is extremely competent and professional. If things are not straightforwardly simple, he’ll figure out a way to get the job done. He answers all communication, is punctual, wastes no time, and is extremely courteous and personable to boot. His price is very reasonable and the finished result will surpass your expectations.

The flange on my toilet needed to be replaced. I was quoted $972 by a National plumber; The Handy Tool Belt did it for several hundreds less and did an amazing job. I will definitely be using them again in the future.

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.
