Scott was great. He was professional, knowledgeable and prepared as he made repairs and painted the exterior of our home and rebuilt a carport. He was helpful, doing other things he saw that needed to get fixed in addition to his work. He kept the work area neat as well. I felt he was honest and I had a sense of trust and assurance that we could have a good working relationship. Scott was pleasant and easy to work with and we would hire him again.

Richard was on time, did a great job of accessing the situation, retrieved the parts and effected the repair. One he finishes the job he pulled out a can of cleaner and cleaned up. I will definitely call him again. His prices are more than fair.

Tom responded quickly, observed the problems with my sprinkler system, and returned the next day to repair 9 heads and completed the job. He and crew were efficient and talked me through the system machine when done. Would suggest hiring him to friends and neighbors.

We had our entire living area, except bedrooms, including ceilings. Kevin prepped everything very carefully, patching holes and repairing cracks. It was a big job but very well done. We are extremely happy with the results. The price was more than fair, the quality of work was excellent as was the neatness of the job. Punctuality was also excellent. They showed up when they were supposed to and got the job done. I would highly recommend Pride painting.

I've had several things done by them. Had my laptop fixed, a desktop that could not be repaired backed up and files moved to the laptop. Also replaced a shattered screen on my son's tablet. They were very helpful and fast with the service. It ended up being a very time consuming repair with the two computers but they worked night and day until they had it repaired. I was kept ed up to speed on a daily basis of my repair status. I highly recommend them for any repairs you may have.

Jay's excellent work when he was at our house working with another contractor prompted us to call him for two other home improvements we wanted done. When he was here the first time he assisted in laying new wood floors, widening doors and painting. The second and third time Jay came was to lay wood floor in other rooms. Jay always communicated with us about his availability to complete the work. His attention to detail was great, nothing was too much trouble. He is our contractor of choice and we will definitely be calling him for any future home improvements we plan to make.

Jc was very polite when he came to our home to quote. After price comparison with other painters we decided his estimate was the best. On job day he showed up on time with one other worker, Ryan, who was also very well mannered. In our house we had 2 bedrooms, a stairwell, ceiling, and trim work done. They did and amazing job ! I would recommend them too family, friends, and everyone needing honest professional painters.

I had a roof leak and hardwood floor damage. Shawn was an utmost professional. Very timely and informed. Although a battle with my homeowner's insurance coverage necessitated the use of a lower cost subcontractor for the roof repair I needed, I won't hesitate to reach out to Shawn for future projects.

Our project was a big one... It was a complete house demolition and the house was very close to two other houses so everything had to be done carefully. The house also had asbestos siding and another company I spoke with prior said it was going to cost way more than we were willing to pay just to remove the siding, not to mention the demo itself. After speaking with Rock, I found out that the other company was definitely trying to over charge us and Rock said that he would help us out as much as possible to keep the price down. This company were great and flexible with our schedule and got the project done in a timely manner.

    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.
