Santiago did a wonderful job! I hired him to remove household items to my dumpster and he was punctual, professional and had a great work ethic. I would definitely call on him again if I needed a handyman!

Roberto does very good work. He is sometimes hard to get up with but once he says he's coming, he'll be there. He stayed with us for 9 hours yesterday getting our list done. He knows a lot about a lot, as you would expect a handyman to do. Put up 2 ceiling fans; repaired steps and deck spindale; repaired wobbly toilet; hung pictures along high stairs/wall; replaced flappers in 3 toilets. Broken English makes him sometimes hard to understand, but he's very pleasant to be around and repeats himself as needed. Very personable. A U.S. Veteran for which we thank him for is service there. Fees are sometimes set, sometimes he accepts whatever can be paid. Plan to use him over and over, as long as he serves us well.

Mike reset/re-installed a toilet and pedestal sink in our powder room. It had been removed in order for new flooring installation to be completed. Mike quickly responded to my Thumbtack project request and scheduled a day and time that was convenient for me. He was punctual and very professional. He actually did a better job resetting/reinstalling the fixtures than the original contractor installation. His quote/price was also better than the other handymen who responded to my request, but I hired Mike based on how responsive he was to my contacts with him. Mike was also very friendly and personable - so that made the experience even better. We plan to use Mike for any of our future handyman needs. We are glad we found him!

I originally hired Alan to repaint a bathroom that had been recently painted horribly. The previous handyman, hired from another website, got paint on the ceiling, baseboards and left parts unpainted. Alan did a superb job, was on time and very pleasant. I have since hired him to do several jobs in my new house and he has been on time and done a great job on everything.

We were very pleased with Jacques and the finished project. This was our first time using Thumbtack and could not be happier with the service and how easy it was to hire an handyman. He exceeded our expectations by keeping the lines of communication open, arrived on time and most importantly kept us informed every step of the way. I would recommend him and have already started passing out his business cards in our subdivision. We will be calling him soon for additional handy projects in the near 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.

    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.

    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.
