Chris did a fantastic job! He was responsive leading up to the scheduling and the installation. He walked me through the process of installing the closet organizer and was collaborative. He was fair on his pricing. I had a few other contractors reach out and quoted double the amount that I paid for the organizer from Lowe's. I could not have asked for a more helpful and engaged handyman/contractor! Thanks Chris!!

I recommend Mr. Cid, Carpenterz art as a handyman. He is responsible, punctual and a quick worker. Mr. Cid is also a nice person. Yesterday, he assembled an Ester Audrea Queen Wall Bed with Two 25" Storage Units and Drawers. The instructions said it would take approximately 15 hours to put together, but Mr. Cid had it up and ready to go in one day. We could not be more pleased with Mr. Cid's skills and work ethic.

After being jerked around by Sears on my washer install, I got an immediate response from Right Hand Handymen. I explained the situation, he said he could resolve my issue. He showed up on time, came up with work around for obstacles that came up. He and his son completed the install within the estimated time frame. Everything works as it should. I will rehire when needed.

My yard looks great and the mailbox is now new! I will definitely call Mr. Mitchell again when I have another project. Great handyman services.

I would like to express how absolutely pleased I was with Do It Right Handyman, Thomas Turbilt. After wanting and looking for a handyman I truly lucked out when I found him. First of all, he followed up with me immediately online with questions regarding the projects I needed done and again before the appointment we had scheduled. He was very professional, on time, and the quality of his work was just what I wanted. The cost was very reasonable. I already have a list of additional projects for him and have been singing his praises to my neighbors, friends and family.

Gerry helped build me an incredible storage shelf in my garage over the door, 20ft by 4ft. He responded quickly and was at my house in a few days. Showed up early and did a top notch job in a few hours. His price was incredible. He brought along a friend who helped - thank God because I am not much help. I had given up hope on finding a Handyman to tackle this job but Gerry was worth the wait. He is a true perfectionist, craftsman and gentleman. I will call him back for other work. I cannot say enough about Gerry.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

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.

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.
