Neil came to install our "Sense" intelligent power meter on very short notice, and was very flexible about timing. He quickly installed the device on our main circuit breaker box (and installed a new breaker too). He even explained some aspects of the work as well, just in case I ever have to go in and change any of the wiring (unlikely, since he also nicely bundled all the wires together for easy maintenance). I would definitely hire him again for any work!

Overall very happy with this company. Scheduled me on very short notice after things fell through with another service provider. The work was done at the time that was promised and under budget. Happy with the quality of the work done and would recommend and hire them again.

Stephen's quality of work and expertise was exquisite. He's goal was to provide us the best granite steps and took extra time to do it right, versus "getting in and out". I would highly recommend he and his company for any masonry work.

Excellent work, exceeding expectations. Highly recommend A+. Jeff and his team went above and beyond, renewing my confidence that there are still those who can do a job right and give it 110%. They have restored my garden and made it beautiful. The work involved hedge cutting, grass cutting, weed whacking, strimming, blowing, recking and bagging. I will be retaining their services for all my grass and garden maintenance. Thank you again.

John was a pleasure to work with. His master carpenter, Dave was easy to work with and helped to repair a badly rotted screen porch. I hope to hire them to repair my roof this summer.

Jeff and his team recently completed a project of repairing extensive damage to the sill infrastructure in front of my house. They also replaced clapboards and installed a new front door. I am very happy with the quality of the work done. His team arrived when they said they would and kept a clean work area. I fully intend to call on Jeff on any future home carpentry projects that I might have. Thanks Jeff.

These are the pros. I was new to contracting so I really had to be walked through the process. They were very patient while I gained an informed opinion and helped me to make design choices that were in my best interest and not to line their pockets. The responsiveness was fantastic. I have received fast responses to all me questions and been kept apprised of the daily schedule. Sean seamlessly schedules his crew to affect little downtime for his pros and timely work completion for the customer. I was impressed by the expertise, knowledge and friendliness of every pro he sent to my house. He handled problems and changes with experience and aplomb. I had one bathroom remodeled and another newly constructed. Sean supplied a detailed appraisal and brought the project in on budget except for the curves I threw him. The project time was extended mainly due to my special requests and unforeseen problems. The results are two show stopper bathrooms. Quality, workmanship and design are outstanding. Would I hirer him again? I am already looking at new projects and upgrades just so I can have him come back.

Sean did an excellent job clearing debris, rusted furniture, old tires and building supplies. He cleared all the brush and overgrowth surrounding a platform that was not being used. Sean will be coming back to do other job as he did a complete and cost effective job. Thank you Sean for a wonderful job and taking care of my parents needs.

Our home was in desperate need of a bathroom makeover when I first contacted Matt Clarke for an estimate (new tub/shower with tiling, new fixtures, new floor, linen closet and towel hooks). From the very beginning, he was professional, thorough and prompt with his questions and his work estimate. We decided to accept his estimate after shopping around, and I'm so glad we did! Matt was a real pleasure to work with. He provided an "allowance" for materials so we could shop for the tile and flooring, and shared our ideas about what we would like to see done with the space and what kind of fixtures we wanted to have installed. Every day, Matt showed up in a timely manner, would lay down drop cloths to catch any clutter, and vacuumed up behind himself before leaving. We hardly even heard him in our home while he was doing demo and work! I would highly recommend his services for whatever project you have in mind for your home. Our bathroom looks great, and we're so pleased with his work. We're hoping to have him back next year to finish off our basement!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

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.

Why is property management important?

A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.

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.
