Mark and his son did an excellent job removing leaves from my lawn. I have a lot of trees and the previous owners had allowed the leaves to build up over a number of years. This ended up being a very time consuming, labor intensive job; but they both worked tirelessly until the job was complete. Would definitely recommend them to others.

Everything about working with Nick was great. Kimberly was very responsive, Nick showed up when he said he was going to show up and was always very professional. He had great ideas and was open to giving us the upgraded option and the lower cost option. His workers kept the work area clean and organized. There were some minor things that had to be fixed- a step reinforced and some benches extended, which were immediately taken care of. The project took longer than expected because of three consecutive weeks of rain, but it was well worth the wait. Our new deck looks beautiful. I will hire Nick again and recommend him to others.

I hired M&K to install an interior french (double) door. Prior to agreed upon date for the install, I asked Kim (the K in M&K) if they could do a couple of other jobs while at my house and Kim said sure. The door install was a much bigger project than we realized because the information we had from The Home Depot about the doors being "double pre-hung" was misleading. This was not mine or M&K's fault. This was on the Home Depot. I felt bad knowing this was now going to be a bigger project than we thought. Mark (the M in M&K) and Kim kept to their pricing for the install. Not only did they complete the work on getting the doors hung, they completed the other 3 projects which included putting in a new toilet in the master bath, fixing the hose under the kitchen sink and connecting a hose in the laundry room and all for very fair prices. Bottom line - Kim and Mark are super nice folks and did a good job getting the work done. I would recommend M&K and will use them again in the future. Thanks Kim and Mark! Ian

I would recommend Greg Girdis and his Moving and General Labor Service to anyone who needs help in anyway, and I guarantee that I will. He was there on time, worked very hard, and kept asking if there was anything more that he could do for us. I will use him again

Ronald was wonderful to work with. He was willing to answer any questions that I had. Very professional and was on time with all of the materials needed. He quoted me a price for the drywall project and not only stuck to it but was willing to give me a discount. I would not hesitate to call Ronald again for another project.

I hired Gabri to install flooring and a back splash in my kitchen. He was able to undercut the quote received from one of the big box stores by almost $1000 for labor and materials. Gabri provided guidance to help me choose good materials and did stellar work! My kitchen looks amazing and I will, without hesitation hire him for other home improvement services 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.
