We needed and entire bathroom remodel and Antonio's son, Sergio met with us to work out a quote promptly. His initial quote was very fair and he and his guys did a BEAUTIFUL job. They installed a new tub/shower, vanity, toilet, light fixtures, tiled the floor, caulk, grout, painted, hung dry wall, installed shoe molding, new plumbing, and even changed the direction that the door hinged. These guys really seem to know what they're doing!

This was a complete shot in the dark for me, never having used Thumbtack to find a handyman. However, I was desperate to have this job done quickly, and AA Home Improvements proved to be a great choice. James was prompt, communicated clearly, worked hard at removing some really stubborn moss from the roof of an old garage, and was pleasant to work with. I will use him again for handyman services. I have a sense that he is someone who can "put his hand" to any project and get it done in a professional way. Completely satisfied.

I needed a handyman to repair wall tile in bath and install bath fixtures, both of which were challenging. Steve is not only great at problem solving, he's also very versatile. He not only fixed the tile and plumbing for the toilet, he installed the electric wiring for the bath; repaired ceiling damage from roof leak; repaired door frame in bath due to old fixture removal; repaired cracks in walls; painted interior and exterior of house; repaired and painted front porch. His work ethics are admirable. He is on time and cleans as each job is finished. I highly recommend Steve to anyone needing a handyman service! Thank you Steve and Zach!!

Jeremy installed several lighting fixtures for me, including a ceiling fan. He also put together a desk hutch I had purchased 3 years ago, but was unable to assemble. He is hardworking, and has good attention to detail. I was very pleased with his work, and have already scheduled a follow up visit for additional work to be completed. I am very happy to have found a hard working and honest handyman, and am thankful to Jeremy for his excellent work.

We needed someone to mow our yard because my husband had surgery recently. A&L did a great job for us. They came right away and did a thorough job and did it quickly. I would definitely recommend A&L and would call them again if needed.

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.

    I have a space, approx 20' x 20', formerly a carport that the previous owners enclosed into a great room. I will empty it and remove the carpeting. It is a slab floor; I'm not concerned with leveling the slant. I will need linoleum laid down, and a ramp with handrails built from this over the two steps into the kitchen. Also the door btwn this room and kitchen replaced. It is adjacent to a laundry room, and I would like to explore what plumbing options are feasible: sink/shower/toilet. This room will serve as a suite for a family member with a foot prosthesis. Also, fencing a portion of the yard outside this room's exterior door to contain a Rhodesian ridgeback, so prob 6' fencing, with at least one gate.
