My wife, Shelby Jones, and I, Justin Jones, work together as a team. She has been cleaning houses and businesses now for 15 years and I have been in construction now for over half my life going on 23 years. I am a carpenter by trade and started learning the craft from some of the most skilled wood workers that I have met to date, where they taught me how to build cabinets and do seamless crown molding and baseboards. I also ended up working as a plumber for about 5 year's where I learned to swap out bad water heaters and even retrofit some of them to Rannai tankless water heaters. I learned how to swap toilets, faucets sinks and more and eventually ended up spending the majority of my time repiping entire homes from the street due to a lawsuit I'm sure some of you may be familiar with because of faulty piping otherwise known as Kytek. I know enough electrical to install lights and fans with switches and most definetly can install holiday lighting and even rent out the lights if you choose to do your holiday lighting that way. My true passion lies with woodworking though and I spend any time I get to myself doing woodwork in the garage or restaining/painting things around the house for my wife. Even though my wife's cleaning started as a part time job after work it eventually turned into her full time job. She recently has converted over to all natural and eco friendly cleaning products which she decided to do for no extra cost. She has all of her own equipment, like the steamer that she uses mostly in bathrooms and kitchens to not only get the hard stains but also sanitize the areas as well. She also has her own carpet cleaner and can also clean tile and grout. We joined together to offer more of a whole home service. We are both very hard workers and we are dedicated to getting the job done and done right. We will stop at nothing to make sure this is the case. Even if that means going to the store several times or coming back as many times as it takes to ensure it's done and done to our clients satisfaction. We often check back in with clients to ensure their happiness and satisfaction. We dont typically charge by the hour because we dont rush through anything just to get it done quickly. We take the time to do it right and that's why we typically charge per job. That being said we typically estimate the time we feel it should take to get the job done and make sure that we are not charging an outstanding amount and that our prices are fair and competitive. We offer a unique opportunity as a cleaning and handyman service, and have found that most clients appreciate our combined services and use it to their advantage. We enjoy what we do and it shows in our work. We look forward to hearing from you and getting to show you how good we are at what we do.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does a handyman charge?

Minimum rates for handyman jobs typically range from $60-$100. 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.

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 fees.

What do handymen charge per hour?

On average, you can expect to pay a handy person around $55 per hour. However, this cost can range between $35 and $80 per hour, depending on a number of factors. For instance, a handyman may charge a minimum fee of $50-$100 for small jobs that won’t take much of their time. The complexity of the job will affect the price as well. Your final price will also depend upon where you live, as certain regions have higher labor rates than others.

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.

Is it worth it to hire a handyman?

It’s worth it to hire a handyman in many cases. For example, you should hire a handyman when the project’s size and scope make it challenging to complete by yourself. These projects may include major home remodels or additions, foundation work or electrical/plumbing/HVAC-related tasks. However, make sure the handyman has the proper credentials or license to perform the necessary work.

You might also want to hire a handyman if a contractor’s price is too high. Handymen often charge less than general contractors, but contractors typically have the required license to perform certain tasks.

And, lastly, think about the complexity of the job and the cost of future repairs. It’s worth it to hire a handyman when the project is complex. Doing something incorrectly can wind up costing more than hiring the pro in the first place.

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.

Do handymen offer remote or virtual services?

Because a handyman needs to be physically present to perform work, they have not traditionally offered remote or virtual services. However, if you come across handyman profiles that state they offer remote services, message the handymen to see what those services include.

Confer with your handyman to see if consulting over video calls is possible. The professional may be able to walk you through performing basic plumbing, electrical, HVAC and other types of repairs around the house. Compare the handymen in your area side-by-side online, and ask whether they’re willing to help remotely.
