Jerome came and installed blinds in my bedroom and assembled a computer desk. Because I didn’t measure correctly one set of blinds was too snug but Jerome made it possible me for me to simply pop in the right blinds once I replaced them at Lowe’s. Jerome also came same day when he didn’t have to as he was heading home for the day when he saw my request for a handyman. I will use Jerome’s services again!

James was the most pleasant and also skillful electrician/handyman. I bought a condo far from my town that needed update and James did wonderful jobs for the unit. Top quality, top rated services! (As a landlord I've met many people for 16 years and James is one of the best handymen ever.) Thanks a lot, James! Sophie L

Abraham was punctual, professional, and personable. We had to reschedule the work and he was flexible with the change of date. I will definitely call him for other jobs (wall hanging, handyman, etc.) in the future. He seems like a really nice guy and I'm happy with the job he did.

Pete's service was excellent. From the first phone call, he was fair in his price and he called to confirm his appointment. He was on time. He explained his service and even gave me homeowners tips on how to maintain my carpet. Discovered he is a handy man and while he was repairing my carpet, he repaired 2 of my bedroom doorknobs. He will become my new handyman!!! Will definitely recommend him to my friends and neighbors!!!!

This guy is the best. He saved me from a bad installation of my murphy bed (handy.com) The collapsed and could have seriously injured me. I was actually traumatized by that prior experience. Gino listened to my concerns and did the job right. He came back and built the additional console units. He spent the time to complete everything perfectly. He is a handyman you can trust for any project. He's very reasonable and trustworthy. I have other projects in mind and this is the only person I'll be using. You'll want him coming back for more projects too once you see the quality of his work.

Daniel backed me up when the handyman I initially hired was a no-show. Even though I had already moved out, he was willing to help with repairs based on my instructions, whereas the first hire demanded I be there to show him what I wanted done. He documented everything he did and sent me photos. He even took photos of the receipts he obtained when he went to purchase materials and I paid him exactly what he paid for them, no more. Very professional. I highly recommend Daniel.

Roman was very responsive and knowledgeable. He came and fixed my boiler with no issues. His partner Eddy was very handy and courteous as well. Roman reached out to me within minutes of searching for a handyman to fix my boiler. He took me to Home Depot close by in the neighborhood without charge. They were affordable for the time allotted. Fixed my boiler within an hour. Very quick and efficient. If I have any issues I will definately contact them ASAP. Reliability and efficiency are top criteria's for providing the best customer service. With that being said I would highly recommend their service to anyone who needs it. Be realistic about your budget because owning a home is not cheap. Do your research and happy findings :-)

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.
