I would highly recommend Kennedy and Sons for your moving needs. I had an extremely heavy and awkward piece of equipment that needed to be moved from the driveway to the lower level of my home. Dustin and his son were able to accommodate the transition very well. They were prompt to respond to my request, they showed up on time, and handled everything very professionally. Great work!

I needed my gutters cleaned after 3 years of not being done and the gutter over the living room needed to be nailed back up. Randy swung by and gave me an estimate to do that and also remove fallen limbs from my roof and the pile of accumulated limbs next to the driveway. He emailed me when he was done since I was at work and left an invoice in a self addressed envelope (another company had wanted me to leave a check in the screen door, which I was not comfortable doing). When I got home I found that he had also taken away a driveway full of leaves and some acorn litter from near the back door and under the patio table - an unexpected surprise. I will definitely use him again. The Thumbtack experience was easy and quick and took the stress out of figuring out who to choose in the first place.

Professional, courteous, dependable and knowledgable. Kenneth was easily accesible to answer questions and accommodating to my requests and busy schedule. He offered a fair price quote and only took 10 days from our initial meeting to have a new roof and gutters on my house.

The Avila Brothers reconstructed our family room so we could have built-ins for TV and DVDs etc. They matched our other oak shelves and put in glass shelving to match our other glass shelves. They hung a mirror that we could not begin to lift, built new steps for our back porch and fixed fence gates. They cleaned up after and even worked on gates in a hail storm in order to finish on time! They were AWESOME! I would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting quality, timely construction.

They built me a 6 foot wooden privacy fence with 2 gates. The communication was excellent and they were great to work with. I had a good quality fence built at a good price and am very happy with my choice to use them. I am looking to possibly use them for future projects also because of the great experience.

    I loved working with Todd. And if I ever build again, he would be my go to. This is the second home my husband and I have built (one out of state and now the one we live in). And working with him was perhaps one of my very favorite experiences. I have very particular tastes (both aesthetic and functional), have always been very detail oriented, and I am a very hands on client (probably a bit annoying for him and Gloria). He was always accommodating, very involved, and always able to put things back into perspective (to the functional reason). The contractors that he employs have been top notch; always going above and beyond and informing me what they were doing if I stopped by (which I did do daily). I actually got to know most of his contractors and when you realize that they love what they are building, I think it actually shows in their craftsmanship. As for Todd, his attention to perfection just suited my own anal retentiveness. He absolutely puts himself into building this home and I could talk him up forever. I loved working with Gloria. She gives great advice and makes sure that things are communicated. She's also very detail oriented and will keep things on track. We have been in our home for a year. We have had a handful of things that needed repair after a year that involved Todd, but all minor (lighting, driveway cracks due to foundation settling, grout that has some cracks). Probably one major thing that could not have been predicted and really no one's fault was handled immediately. I absolutely LOVE my home. I loved building it. I have maybe two things that I would change (light switch placement on one light and maybe having added the potential frame-out of a fireplace in the semi-unfinished basement). Todd and Gloria both received hugs when we were done. Hands down, when we complete the basement, I plan to have Todd and his contractors back out. He always seemed to see my vision and listened to me when I was very specific in what I had in my head. And when the materials weren't available (or "not in style for Omaha," as one supplier had the gall to tell me), Gloria made sure to hunt down another option that fit what I was looking for. There's something to be said about the Menards. They are a pretty amazing team. It's one thing to listen, one thing to envision, and the other thing to build. So they are a pretty complete package. And let me add, that when I went through a model and expressed that it was and wasn't entirely what I was looking for, I knew that Todd and I would get along when he asked, "Well what would you want to change?" and he took no offense to it. In fact, it solidified our business relationship when he took me room by room and when I expressed something about a nook not being what I would want, he immediately offered other options... It resulted in a giant closet. When we weren't able to install two shower heads, his suggestion were more body sprayers... BEST idea ever. And when I saw something during building that I thought wasn't going to turn out exactly how I envisioned it, there was always the work towards getting it to the best of the availability. One last thing, my husband and I have expressed that we love our home so much that going on fancy vacations won't ever beat being at our own home, we enjoy it so. :)

    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.

    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.
