Tony came out and took a look at the total job needed; he trusted my measurements and gave me an itemized price for the whole job. Along the way he provided suggestions and tips that were only an offer; no high pressure sales, no tact’s- straight shooter. They were done in 2 days as planned and it came out beautiful. His crew even provided some extra labor at no cost. Old school service at a fair price! Highly recommended for at least an estimate. You’ll be happy you did! Thanks again!

Absolutely stellar work. Patrick was here every day as promised and worked his tail off on a very difficult project. The deck looks like new and Patrick's attention to detail was the best I've seen. In addition, Patrick fixed a few things that weren't right. Patrick is a positive, decent guy who really knows his way around skilled labor.

The most frustrating aspect of home renovations is finding experienced and capable people to do the job. I certainly found those characteristics with Herrick Construction. My calls and emails were returned promptly, they came out to the house, listened to what I needed done, offered opinions and suggestions and followed up with an estimate promptly. I needed a flat roof rebuilt and repaired, a covered deck replaced, as well as an outside wall replaced. After our contract was agreed on, Herrick was out the next day to start the job. Aside from doing a complete tear off the roof, Herrick replaced a good portion of the plywood, removed a leaky sky light, ice shielded the entire area, and shingled. Throughout, Herrick went above and beyond by not only repairing a roof that should have been condemned, but strengthened the infrastructure of the area, rerouted some of the gutters to ensure a better water exit and made many minor repairs along the way at no additional cost. The rebuild of the outside wall went exceptionally well. Herrick ensured that the wall will be stable and that no further water damage or decay will occur. The deck was a very labor intensive job and Herrick Construction did a great job on a structure that should not have been a deck to begin with. Don Herrick and his crew have a great deal of experience and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others or using them again for future projects! Most importantly, NO LEAKS!

      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.

      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.
