Jason came out very quickly and fixed the leaking pipe under our sink. There was still some water after he fixed what we thought was the problem. He took the time to repair that part and didn't charge extra labor. He even took a look at the dishwasher. The price was really reasonable and the work was done well. I would definitely use him again.

Jamel and his assistant Steve were great! Jamel was very responsive, he made himself available on a day/time that worked best for us. They arrived on time and did everything from putting the faucets to assembling the coffee table and TV unit. The team is very professional and my living room is looking great!!! Jamel & Steve are extremely nice guys and it was a pleasure having them do work in our home. I will definitely be working with Jamel again and I highly recommend him.

Although I was extremely skeptical about hiring a stranger online to do work in my home, Travis provided me with a wonderful experience. Not only did he do exceptional work, he was very neat, well mannered and thoughtful. He even offered to mount this huge mirror I had resting against my bedroom wall. I will definitely hire him for all of my future home construction and installation needs!

Bertie and his guys were able to do what I couldn't and really saved the day. The elevator in my building has been in the state of repair for over 2 months and after being told it was going to be up and working this week, I went ahead and ordered a new couch and tv stand that I've been waiting to order. Long story short, furniture arrived, elevator still not working, and I live on the 5th floor. Bertie responded to my cry for help very promptly with a reasonable quote and was able to help me same day. He and his team carried all the heavy stuff up 5 flights and took my old stuff down to the trash as well. I write this from my new couch very happy that Bertie was here to help me. I definitely recommend!

I want to say that at first, I wasn't sure about Mr. Almonte's 5 star rating but, after working with him, I understand why he has so many 5 star ratings. He was very courteous, prompt (actually a little early), professional, CLEAN, and best of all, open to questions from a guy who doesn't know much about home repair. He worked very quickly and efficiently. I would recommend Mr. Almonte to anyone. He mounted my TV. I can't speak to other projects but, I'm sure he would bring the same level of professionalism to any and all future projects.

Kenneth was absolutely amazing. He was extremely communicative from the start and throughout the entire process. He was punctual, professional, insightful, and very nice. He worked on a couple home maintenance projects and helped us assess some other projects for further down the road. He showed up on time (he even said he could be early if need be!) and had all materials with him. I will absolutely hire him again and no one should hesitate to. Thanks, Kenneth!

We needed a plumbing repair late Sunday afternoon at my parents home (60 year old house with original copper plumbing). They had found water on the floor of their finished basement. It was not gushing, but a steady drip. We shut off the water to the house. Matt responded quickly through Thumbtack, and was at the house within a couple hours. It was a cracked fitting, which he repaired. Price was reasonable, he was professional and we will use him again. He also called the next day for follow-up.

Pete was a pleasure to work with. He was very easy to communicate with about the details of the project in advance and I appreciated his willingness to brainstorm about the best possible ways of addressing the problem. During the job he was good natured and prepared. Pete was flexible about making sure I was truly happy and that everything was turning out exactly as I had hoped. The job turned out perfectly and I would definitely recommend working with Pete for any home repair needs!! Thank you Pete for all your help.

Anthony was the wonderful to work with. When I came to let him into the unit I was managing, I realized I brought the wrong set of keys with me. He was patient and understanding as I went back to get the right keys making a really crappy situation that much better. He finished the job flawlessly and I would hire him again for any future repairs. I highly recommend him.

Felipe is excellent in every sense of the word. He came on extremely short notice as my furnace pump decided to start leaking water all over the floor. Within hours he had the problem diagnosed and repaired. He recommended some other repair-work that was very much needed in my utility room and also handled that also. All for a very reasonable price. He's very communicative and on top of the job. Highly recommended.

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.
