When I looked to hire someone for the renovation work in my bathroom I had three separate contractors do a site visit to review the scope of work so I could walk through the job and my expectations with each one of them in order for them to provide a bid for the work. Kurt's consistent punctuality started with that first site visit and continued until the completion of the work. His bid for the work contained enough detail to assure that he understood the scope of the project for a competitive price. During the initial site visit he demonstrated the hands on knowledge required for the work through his understanding and questions concerning my intentions on drywall work, vanity/plumbing changes, trim adjustments, tiling and the small amount of electrical work contained in the project. Once the details of the proposal were worked out Kurt got started about a week later as he had clearly communicated his timeline for starting the work to me while pricing the job. All the demo and drywall work was completed in the first two days, with the new tiling, vanity install and trim/finish work completed early the following week. I was so impressed with the quality of the work that I added new tiling installation into a second entire bathroom and some additional drywall and trim work in a third bathroom as well. As a project manager for a commercial construction firm I would highly recommend utilizing Allthingshome for future work based on the quality of their work, timeliness of completion and competitive pricing.

Excellent handyman. We were moving and needed a door installed asap. Tom was there the next day and had the time and patience to make sure the door was installed perfectly. He also stained the door for us. He is very professional, dependable and reasonably priced. I will recommend him to family & friends.

While visiting the Omaha area, I learned my elderly father-in-law was in severe need of some safety devices to be installed at his home. Because the handyman I used previously was no longer doing business, I needed to resort to the internet. Low and behold, I was led to Daniel Moyer, owner of 'On The Level'. Dan was gracious enough to come out on a Saturday afternoon. When he was unable to find a straight piece of railing for our project, he didn't just run to one store, he went tob multiple stores, he even called around until he found one. He returned 2 days later to complete the install. His work is professional. His prices fair. His personality warm and his timelines and communications TOP NOTCH!! For our next project, he will be called first! I wish there were more honest, "good guys" out there like Daniel!!

Amazing professional,Ken, is a gem and the best person on Thumbtack. He is the best and saved our bacon when another handyman walked off the job after giving him tens of thousands. He is on thumbtack so be weary of the other guy he is a thief. Ken Grey is HIGHLY recommended and you will not be disappointed!

Luke was very flexible with the times he could meet and was very good about getting back in touch with me. He originally came out to clean the faucet however the faucet still leaked but he came back to install a new faucet that we purchased at a very fair price! Also, as he replaced the faucet, he talked through what he was doing to give me a better idea of what was happening should i attempt to do it myself. I highly recommend Luke for any handyman needs!!

The day after I contacted Joe Morrow he came to our home to quote us the labor cost for taking out an old bathroom vanity, install a new one, do the plumbing and also to install a new bathroom light fixture and vanity mirror. I had purchased my vanity, vanity top and other items at Home Depot . The store clerk told me it would fit perfectly. Not! The fact was the new unit needed to be modified and the unit was not as well put together as we anticipated but Joe was able to make it stronger and fit perfectly. I can't lift heavy items and Joe offered to go to the store and picked up the vanity for us. I am disable and not able to do heavy work but I am able to paint and do the small things for our bathroom remodel. Joe found and marked the studs for me so I can install a hand bar. He also gave me some advise on the finish work I will do myself. Joe is very professional and friendly. You can tell he enjoys his work and his work was excellent. You could not ask for a better handyman for any job you need done. We asked Joe for several business cards so we can share them with our friends. If we ever need any work done in the future Joe will be our go to guy! Thank you Joe, we really appreciate you!

Corey helped me with various maintenence and move out after 7 years. He did a great job, hard worker and doesn't waste time. He was friendly and did not have a problem with my 4 year old's numerous questions. His price was more than fair, and he even did a couple of things that weren't included in the estimate because he noticed them and didn't want to leave them in disrepair. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a handyman. I know I will be using him for any future needs I may encounter in my new home. Thanks Corey! I'll be in touch.

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.
