Michael responded almost immediately and sent a worker (Scott) to meet me that day who could start the next morning. They finished in one day except for a weird old style kitchen drawer, which Scott is checking on as a special order. Haven't experienced this type of service/caring in a long time. Powerhouse just became my new go to handyman service! Randy Sotka, Broker Sotka Realty (702) 556-6354

I have experience in commercial and residential remodeling and maintenance. I'm a master at antique restoration, repair, and preservation. I also refinish, repair, and customize all manner of furnishings, cabinetry, and all things wood. If you need a custom cabinet, rack, shelving, or closet organization system, I will design, fabricate, and install said item to your specification (all wood Items are hand crafted, the only nails and screws used are for hardware and moldings, I use dowels and dovetails for joining, sorry no exceptions). I install security doors, garage door openers, doors for doggies and kitties, and closet doors. Insulation of walls, pipes, ducting, as well as elimination of gaps and cracks that cause energy waste. Change-out of household filters, refrigerator filters and coil cleaning, smoke alarms batteries and base units. Winterizing of sprinkler systems, yard equipment, and vehicles. Sprinkler system repair, design, and installation including drip and soaking systems. And much much more, if you have a project that includes something not listed shoot me an e-mail chances are I've done projects like it or can recommend an expert. I am not a general contractor as of yet so I do have some limitations, Electrical, Plumbing, and HVAC systems work must be preformed by a licensed technician. I am a seven year Veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard, am married and have two children. I'm detail oriented, and a bit O.C.D., so I might take a bit longer but the end result is superior in quality, construction, and installation. I guarantee my work against defects in manufacture (when applicable), installation, and performance. Contact me w/any questions or comments. Sincerely, Joseph Garcia

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.

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.
