The guys worked hard and were very courteous. One thing (bedside drawer) fell and was damaged, but I can fix it, and the guys jumped up right away and took responsibility (which made me more inclined to deal with it myself:)...good guys and a good price.

Their work was extremely professional. They sealed all exterior windows, plus cleaned and inspected our HVAC, and repaired a leaking sprinkler system. All the work was completed quickly and for a fair price.

Jason took the time to read my sprinkler repair requirement (including limited schedule window) and he provided a tailored response that made selecting him a no-brainer. He arrived early to my appointment, quickly diagnosed the problem, explained to me what he was doing each step of the way, and was thorough. I recommended Jason to a next-door neighbor half-way through my appointment! I also recommend him to you fellow thumbtack Users!

The valve on the sprinkler system began leaking. It had frozen and broken two winters ago and had been replaced by a sprinkler company. Marcel responded promptly to my request to fix this recent leak. He diagnosed the problem shortly after arriving and explained it to me and said what kind of repair it needed. He showed me on his computer how this part which was replaced two years ago was inferior quality and subject to freezing and breaking again. He showed me another part on the computer which looked much more substantial and it would not have the freezing and breaking problem. He was able to fix the current valve so that it no longer leaks. He suggested that I replace this part with the more substantial part before the cold weather sets in. He said he could replace it once I got the part. I was very grateful to him for diagnosing the problem and being able to fix it on the spot, and plan to have him replace this valve before the winter sets in. Would definitely recommend Marcelo.

I had a leaky shower head and Cal replaced the knob and installed a brand new shower head. Everything was done very quickly! He knows what's he's doing and very friendly and fair. I will definitely call on him again for general home repair and I certainly recommend his services!

I initially hired Arthur to service my air conditioner...but days previously, part of my fence blew down, and before I knew it, Arthur and his Dad was repairing my fence! Utilizing Art's Handyman was a bit unorthodox (Arthur and his Dad's appointment style and work flow is a bit fluid.); however, their sincerity, their enthusiasm, and their exceptional pricing - more than makes up for any difficulties with communication! I am very happy with their work; and already, I am considering them for other projects! In this day and age, where people do not stand behind their work, and try to fleece as much as they can from their customers, you see what you get from Arthur, and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again!

Mr. Sanchez of Sanchez Landscaping provided an excellent service repairing a flowerbed wall. He identified the problems that caused the wall deterioration, thoroughly discussed his plan and carried out the repair quickly, including long term prevention of the problem reoccurring. His team included a skilled, professional and courteous worker. I recommend Mr. Sanchez without reservation.

James did a great job and, in spite of a delay (stores closed and couldn't get a part) he did my water heater repair in a timely manner. He is polite, professional and friendly and I recommend him.

Repair circuit breaker. Joe was great. Came out the same day. Unfortunately Lowe's did not have the correct breaker so Joe went all the way to Home Depot to get the part. Came back to my home and finish the job. Very professional. Very friendly. Great price. Educated me on what he was doing so I learned a lot. I would recommend to anyone and call him again myself.

I renovated the upstairs of my home into a master-suite. Jaime gutted the interior, put up new framing and dry wall, converted a half bath into a three quarter bath, installed hardwood flooring, did all of the tile and finish work. The work was excellent and I had a great experience with Jaime. I found him to be completely trustworthy and honest about the work and its cost. In addition he gave excellent feedback about the overall design and specific choices on how the job should be completed. The work was done quickly and right at his original estimate of how long the work would take. I would definitely hire him again to do more work in my home.

Jesus Perez arrived promptly to attend to a leak in our cement floor. He discovered the broken pipe quickly, jack hammered the floor, and repaired the leak. The repair also required cutting into the drywall. After the area dried, he returned to repair the drywall and re-cement the floor. I will definitely hire Mr. Perez in he future as he is adept at varied repairs and works conscientiously.

IET was very responsive and punctual on assessing the job and fixing the electrical problem we had from a previous electrical contractor. Not only did they address the issue at hand, but also found and fixed other issues we were experiencing. They also did some in-kind maintenance work on our building. We were very appreciative of their attentiveness and great work ethic. We would and have used them with other jobs. We highly recommend IET for any electrical work that needs to be done, either residential or business.

Matt was responsive and hopefully corrected the problem. Too difficult to know immediately due to snow on the rooftop. I am very pleased with attention to the critical need to get the repair done and I will use him for other projects in the future. Excellent service.

I really liked how responsive Marquis was in quickly visiting my house to look over the gate to repair but also in that he offered to start work immediately after the visit and took only about two hours all told to get the work done. The gate is repaired far sooner than I was expecting and it is good for my peace of mind from a security and dog safety standpoint. The repair still holds up and is even easier to use than the old latching mechanism while also considerably sturdier.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
