Mike was wonderful. He arrived on time, was very efficient and incredibly quick at putting in my window AC unit (I tried for 2 hours the day before!!) as well as putting in the brackets for my blackout curtains on my dormer Windows. My new place is a breezy 63F with privacy and I couldn't be happier 😎. I highly recommend him for anyone needing a very kind, respectful, swift handyman who doesn't cut corners or overcharge. I will definitely be contacting him again if I ever need any help with house-related things.

Within 2 hours of initially bidding on my job, Sam was at my home (at 11pm on a Saturday!) assembling my bookcase/toy box! He did a great job, charged a very fair and reasonable rate, and even moved the bookcase to its designated spot, when I realized it would be too heavy for me to move myself. I will definitely reach out to Sam for any future handyman needs, and recommend him highly.

Michael Keith provided excellent handyman service for five separate tasks over two visits for a total of 7 hours. This did not include his personal time researching how to install a grab bar on a one piece bathtub fronted acrylic and fiberglass wall. He ordered the kit required to fit onto the grab bar in order to attach it to the stud behind the wall. His initiative was impressive and deeply appreciated. He hung several pictures, all of which required the use of a ladder and precise measuring. He also figured out that a kitchen island stool needed tightening of loose screws. Finally, in a matter of minutes, he installed two shelves in a closet armoire. Throughout, Michael worked in a calm and knowledgeable manner, explaining what he was doing. His hourly price was reasonable and of value. I was very pleased with the work he did and highly recommend him to Thumbtack clients. I would use his services again in the future. Theresa Ware

Rich Higgins of The House Mechanix did two projects for us. The first was to install a sliding shower door that we purchased. He did a very professional job. We hired him again for a second project that included a long list of interior repairs. They included patching ceiling and wall drywall, priming and painting, and a large number of miscellaneous handyman items. We are very satisfied with his pricing and quality of work. We also found him very ethical and easy to deal with. Steve McEvoy West Chester, PA

He came out when he said he would. He was extremely hard worker, he gave me a fair price and his workmanship was A+. He put down flooring, did trim around my bathroom mirrors, and repaired title on my bathroom walls that was damage due to a leak in the walls. He did such a great job. He is my go to handyman.

Mr. Patrick Brown has a unique ability to inspire those around to find better ways to solve problems and reach joint solutions on and off work sites. He also knows how to take charge if and when the situation dictates. In addition, he has a great reciprocal learning capacity; in that he has no problem imparting his knowledge to those willing to learn, but also displays a positive attitude when others have something they can teach him. Possessing these qualities and more make having Mr. Patrick Brown and his team a great addition to any team.

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.
