Jason came out very quickly and fixed the leaking pipe under our sink. There was still some water after he fixed what we thought was the problem. He took the time to repair that part and didn't charge extra labor. He even took a look at the dishwasher. The price was really reasonable and the work was done well. I would definitely use him again.

Jerome was great! He his communication and quick responses were greatly appreciated. His quality of work was tremendous and he will be the first person I call next time I need an installation, repair, or any home maintenance questions. Clean and efficient job while installing a TV mount in my place and made sure we were satisfied with the results. Jerome was very personable and enjoyed having him install the TV wall mount.

It was a pleasure to have James Roa work in my home. He kept in communication with me beforehand, was on time and did what was requested of him and more. He could have assembled the pantry and left and really that’s all that was expected of him. BUT he did so much more. He accurately centered the pantry on the wall, made sure it was level, wiped out the inside and removed the stickers. Who does this???? James does! Afterwards he not only cleaned up after himself, but in addition vacuumed the carpeting to get up all the bits and pieces of Styrofoam and took the box and all the packaging outside. On a personal level he is enjoyable company with his good sense of humor and positive outlook. Hire James. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Joseph's company assembled an ikea dresser that I previously had paid to have assembled through Ikea and they did a terrible job. Within months my dresser was falling apart. Unlike most companies, Joseph did not give me a window of time that my repair would happen rather he let me choose an exact time it would be assembled! His staff showed up on time called me when he arrived and went above and beyond. I had my dresser assembled early in the morning and there were several people sleeping in my apartment and he consistently apologized for how loud it was when he wasn't being loud at all! Joseph called me while my dresser was being assembled to make sure everything was going well. Most importantly, Joseph offered me the best rate out of anyone I called! The entire assembly took about an hour and other companies were trying to charge me $150! Overall, I am more than satisfied with my experience and will definitely be using him again!

"Mr Kurt Anthony" did wallpaper removal, wallpaper installation, wall repair and paint for me. He did a remarkable job across the board. He came on time with all supplies and a pleasant attitude. He was patient and never rushed, and actually quite a perfectionist which was a pleasant surprise. We worked out a fair price and the work was excellent. Thank you and praises to "Mr Kurt Anthony!"

I want to say that at first, I wasn't sure about Mr. Almonte's 5 star rating but, after working with him, I understand why he has so many 5 star ratings. He was very courteous, prompt (actually a little early), professional, CLEAN, and best of all, open to questions from a guy who doesn't know much about home repair. He worked very quickly and efficiently. I would recommend Mr. Almonte to anyone. He mounted my TV. I can't speak to other projects but, I'm sure he would bring the same level of professionalism to any and all future projects.

Kenneth was absolutely amazing. He was extremely communicative from the start and throughout the entire process. He was punctual, professional, insightful, and very nice. He worked on a couple home maintenance projects and helped us assess some other projects for further down the road. He showed up on time (he even said he could be early if need be!) and had all materials with him. I will absolutely hire him again and no one should hesitate to. Thanks, Kenneth!

A pleasure to deal with, he was professional enough to discourage the repair of an old air conditioner, even though he would have made more money had he done it. We would surely hire him again for other jobs.

Konstantinos went above and beyond. I needed to repair damage to my living room walls and paint over a dark accent wall to match the existing paint in the unit. I was not able to find the same paint but Konstantinos did a beautiful job blending and completely covered up the areas where plaster had been ripped off from removing a pressurized wall. Not only did he do a great job on my painting / repair but he also helped me patch up some damage to my floors as a courtesy and all at a very reasonable price (and really the best price I could find after searching Thumbtack and Yelp). Would definitely hire him for future jobs.

Anthony was the wonderful to work with. When I came to let him into the unit I was managing, I realized I brought the wrong set of keys with me. He was patient and understanding as I went back to get the right keys making a really crappy situation that much better. He finished the job flawlessly and I would hire him again for any future repairs. I highly recommend him.

Leonardo is outstanding! He is an artisan with many talents. He did a beautiful job repairing my coffee table and we chatted a bit during the process. I learned he is also a millworker and lighting designer so we're now working on more projects together. He is charming, honest, and fastidious.

We had an excellent experience with DHI. Hugo and James were professional and thorough in the the work they completed for us. They went above and beyond what we contracted for a fair price. My house was left clean and they saved us money by salvaging our existing tiles and repairing a window instead of replacing it. We were completely satisfied with their work and are already planning on hiring them do another project.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
