Tim and Craig did an excellent job. Projects involved assembling and mounting TV, assembling desk, bed, garbage pull-out receptacle, hanging a mirror. Price was much more reasonable than any other local handyman. Both were very respectful, kept the place clean and cleaned up any mess from boxes, styrofoam, etc. that was remaining. Would strongly recommend for any projects you have, I will go to them with my next projects.

I was looking for someone to take down a wooden shed for me. Helio responded quickly to the request with a reasonable price for the job. He is professional and well experienced. He finished the work on time and even worked in the rain no less to get it completed!!! I would definitely call Helio if you need an honest and hard working handyman.

George Decker was terrific. He responded promptly and went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that everything was finished appropriately. The quality was excellent and he is very concerned about customer satisfaction....a rare quality. He did landscape/lawn work and some handyman work for us. I highly recommend him. Chris

I asked Jim to install of an under mount bathroom sink to replace one with a crack. I usually do home repair projects myself but after getting under the sink to attempt it I decided to hire this one out (wasn't sure how to detach the sink since the screws on the mounting clips wouldn't move and I didn't want to damage the granite). I sent Jim a few pictures of the project to be completed, we were able to coordinate our schedules very quickly and easily, and less than a week later I have my new sink installed and a new go-to for handyman work that I'm not comfortable with. While he was there I asked Jim to give me a quote on another project I plan on completing this winter that is outside my comfort zone. Nicest part was that it was easy to get the project done- I didn't have to screw around with cancellations (which I have had to do before from other contractors) and we didn't have to go through a multi-step quote to completion process.

My boyfriend and I recently moved to the Rochester area from Albany and purchased a house in February. Not being from the area we did not know a good handyman so we thought we would try thumbtack and use advice from local referrals. We were looking to install a new composite sink and faucet in our kitchen and posted an add under plumbing, within a couple hours we had a response from Jeff. We purchased the sink and set up a time for him to come to our house and install it. It was a flawless process and the sink looks wonderful. Being new to our home we had several filters in the basement connected to our kitchen sink and he removed them for us, significantly increasing our water pressure. We have scheduled him to come back to our house to install a backsplash in our kitchen and I am sure his attention to detail will be evident. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone in the area.

Best hire I have ever made. Capable, applied, knowledgeable, focused. I will now always call Dave in the future when I have a handyman project in my home. And He is truly a very nice guy. I felt at ease with him at all times. He is a good listener as well. The carpentry and painting done on my shed made it look like new; like it did when I bought it some 20 years ago.

Jarad's Handyman Service

I finally found an amazing handyman/painter. I have hired painters in the past only to regret every dollar spent. Jarad's work was phenomenal. His response was prompt and he showed on time not just for the estimate but for the job itself. I can't say enough about the quality of his work. He paid such attention to detail. I had my family room painted which included ceiling, walls and trim. Some of the trim was stained wood and had never seen paint. The window sills were in bad shape, gouged, scratched, and 27 years of weathering. I actually wondered if they should be replaced. I don't know how he did it but they look like new. They are filled in, filled out sanded and painted. Unbelievably amazing!! The walls, the ceiling, ALL the trim work as well as the cutting in; everything looks amazing. I won't use anyone else from now on. I never thought the room could look so nice. The phrase, you get what you pay for is an understatement. I got more!!

Never used a service like this before so I was nervous about hiring a complete stranger. I am now so happy I found Brian through Thumbtack. My projects turned out to be more complicated and time-consuming than expected but he took the time necessary to troubleshoot the problems and corrected a dangerous wiring situation as well as satisfactorily completing installation of a new outlet for my AC. Brian was professional and courteous, arrived as scheduled, and charged a very reasonable amount for his work. Would 100% recommend him to others seeking help with electrical as well as handyman-type jobs. Thanks Brian and Thumbtack for saving the day!

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.
