Jerome came and installed blinds in my bedroom and assembled a computer desk. Because I didn’t measure correctly one set of blinds was too snug but Jerome made it possible me for me to simply pop in the right blinds once I replaced them at Lowe’s. Jerome also came same day when he didn’t have to as he was heading home for the day when he saw my request for a handyman. I will use Jerome’s services again!

Gary was fantastic! He went above and beyond to make sure everything was done right. He was very punctual, even allowing time for parking ahead of time. He was professional and courteous and brought everything he needed to complete the job. Very well prepared and knew what he was doing around the house. Let us know if there was something like electrical that was outside his expertise which was great. A lot of guys will just attempt things they don't know how to do and mess it up. I will definitely use Gary for all my handyman tasks from now on!

Great handyman! Mr. Baptiste responded to my Thumbtack request very quickly (and was available for the job the same day!), was pleasant to talk to while he was working, and didn't charge me extra even though the lock change he did for me wound up being slightly more difficult than I'd anticipated. I will definitely be in touch with him for future projects.

Ivan was the first one to respond to my inquiry and was able to work within my budget. He was able to fix the work of a previous electrician so quickly! He even noticed we hadn’t hung a mirror yet and offered to do that as well. Ivan is our go-to handyman from this point on!

If you need a handyman, you have to hire him. He is so polite and gets the job done. We were missing screws from one of our beds (it was the fault of the movers). Can you believe Pierre ordered the screws and came back a week later to put the bed together?

Abraham was punctual, professional, and personable. We had to reschedule the work and he was flexible with the change of date. I will definitely call him for other jobs (wall hanging, handyman, etc.) in the future. He seems like a really nice guy and I'm happy with the job he did.

I had a regular handy-person for years. He did excellent work and i trusted him implicitly. He retired a few years ago. My search for a replacement was unsuccessful. James installed some wall lights and provided me consultation on other projects. He suggested other professionals to use. His work is impeccable. He returned the work area to its’ pre-project state. He is very personable. I found my new handyman.

Roman was very responsive and knowledgeable. He came and fixed my boiler with no issues. His partner Eddy was very handy and courteous as well. Roman reached out to me within minutes of searching for a handyman to fix my boiler. He took me to Home Depot close by in the neighborhood without charge. They were affordable for the time allotted. Fixed my boiler within an hour. Very quick and efficient. If I have any issues I will definately contact them ASAP. Reliability and efficiency are top criteria's for providing the best customer service. With that being said I would highly recommend their service to anyone who needs it. Be realistic about your budget because owning a home is not cheap. Do your research and happy findings :-)

This guy is great. Excellent craftsmanship. He does more than you request if he sees a problem if you had not predicted or forseen. Block out a considerable amount of time because you can expect that he will take as much time as is necessary to get the job done. His Rates are very reasonable. In fact, when you see the quality of his work you would be inclined to give him more than what he asked. I did. I totally recommend this man. If you ever need a plumber call him first. Note: this is not som hype; Iam a true satisfied customer.

Chris was very responsive and knew exactly what to do, came in with a case of anchors and screws like a full out hardware store. Very well prepared and neat, his helper stood with their vacuum to make sure no dust fell while drilling. They even had booties. Well priced for the quality work he provided. Will use him again.

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.

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.
