Very trustworthy. Mike saved me a visit and money by giving me simple fix-it ideas for my refrigerator over the phone. Afterward, I brought him in for a different job and felt very comfortable with his service. Clearly he is an expert at his craft. The next time I have a home repair issue he will be my first call.

We had to re-schedule an appraisal for the cost of the project and he actually came on a Sunday. Texted me when he was on his way, he came on time and gave us an estimate. A part had to be ordered and Toni let us know when it came and again was on time for the repair. He was quick with the repair, very polite and cleaned up after he finished. Very pleased and we recommend Toni!

I met with Jimmy Soles, the owner, about installing new flooring in my Hartville ranch home. His pricing was right. but more importantly, he was very knowledgable and I was impressed enough to hire him on- the -spot. As the job progressed it unexpectedly required installing replacement under boards, dry wall repair, and custom cuts for both my newly installed Pergo XL and baseboards. No problem with any of it. And he worked on my schedule! (He worked his ass off) He has since installed a new "Disposall" and fixed my fence's gate He is scheduled to return early next year to advise me on a patio enclosure and some electrical issues. I would, and will hire Jimmy for all of my property repair needs. (ask for a senior discount)

This repair was for a re-installation of a kitchen sink and minor damage to the pvc pipes under sink. The price for this job was fair and the same as the final price. Yuriy Kononets from KYT Properties is completely professional, on time, and does quality work at a fair price.. I will be calling on him for future jobs.

Brian responded promptly, stayed in touch and was quickly available. This was a small plumbing job, replaced 3 shut off valves and was treated in a very professional manner. Will certainly keep him in mind for future repairs.

I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with John Mullinax. I needed my Plasma TV mounted securely above my fireplace with the cables concealed in the wall. Out of the 5 quotes I received, John’s was the most reasonably priced. When John showed up at my house for the installation, he was very friendly, professional and just a very knowledgeable guy. I had purchased both a TV wall mount and an A/V wall shelf for my cable box, etc. The TV mount came disassembled, but he assembled everything and had my TV mounted on the wall in no time with the wires concealed in the wall and going down the side of the fireplace in a neat bundle. He told me the A/V shelf I bought wouldn’t really work for my setup and suggested I buy a better one—he even offered to come out a few days later to install the shelf after I bought it. When he came back to install my shelf, he ran into some difficulty with the sheer amount of equipment/cables I had (no fault of his own), but he still managed to make sure everything was secure and looked neat and tidy. Overall, he treated this installation as if it were for his own house and made sure that everything was to my satisfaction before he left. John has a great work ethic and genuinely cares about customer satisfaction. I will definitely be using him in the future for any installations or repair work. Thanks, John!

Mike and his assistant were on time each day, kept to the promised 2-day schedule and price quote, did a great job -- you now cannot tell the walls of our foyer were ever papered -- and cleaned up when they were finished. Also, he was able to repair a dent & small hole in the upstairs hallway before painting, and last, he provided a separate quote and returned to repair some minor water damage in the ceiling of one of the upstairs rooms. We would not hesitate to use Mike again. And the price for his work was fair & reasonable.

Martins Home Improvement ordered and installed windows in my home. Dan the owner was very professional through the whole process. Dan and his crew was always on time and very professional while on the property. Martin went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with the install and always made sure the areas were neat and tidy before leaving for the day. I also added some gutter repair while dan and the crew was here and was also very pleased with this repair. If your looking for home repairs from a quality company and crew I would highly recommend Martin Home Improvements. A plus rating on install and professional service. Martin was also very fair and upfront on the pricing!

The Village Plumber did a fantastic job installing a new water heater. They were very responsive to my questions and considerate with scheduling. The value was unbeatable and I feel that the pricing was very fair, finally someone who is not trying to take advantage of the customer and understands the struggle of every-day homeowners! They worked very quickly. Only took about an hour to drain, install, and remove my old tank. They were very clean, laid down protective coverings over my floor and cleaned up their mess after the job was finished! Most of all I appreciate them working with my home warranty company (as many other plumbers decided it was too much of a hassle for them to make a phone call). I am very satisfied and would highly recommend them for any plumbing job you have! You won’t regret it!

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.
