Joe gave me an estimate online and came over that evening to do the job. He ran a 240v outlet from the breaker to the garage, and rearranged the breaker box to make room for it. His rate was affordable and fair, and didn't nickel and dime for parts, etc.

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.

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!

As a single woman, Mr Fixit affirms with every task he is truly a handyman hero. Whether it's a vacuum cleaner that is not working correctly, a piece of siding on the house that the wind removed, blowing out gutters, fixing a tub drain that only drained very slowly and now no water collects during a shower at all... he's proven to be very reliable and timely. Highly recommend. Thanks Mr. Fixit! ... again, and again :D

Wade and his painters were at our new home numerous times! They painted the LR, DR, hallways, bedrooms, trim, and doors. We plan on having them come back to paint the basement this winter. They are professional, nice and great painters!! I would recommend them in a second! They asked questions , and really took the time to paint and do a fantastic job. Great pricing and friendly service- priceless!!

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        What does a property management company do?

        Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

        • Marketing the rental property
        • Collecting rent
        • Handling repair problems
        • Responding to tenant complaints
        • Evicting tenants  

        A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

        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.

        Why is property management important?

        A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.

        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.
        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
