Friendly and quite personable, AJ installed our new toilet, expertly and efficiently. When it became clear that the new fill valve was defective, he attempted to fix it, but without success. He then took the extra time to replace it with the one from the old commode, and made sure it was functioning properly. He is an all-around handyman, not just performing plumbing work. I strongly recommend him, and will likely call upon his services again.

We are a major franchise in Ohio and it has always been trying to find a handyman that can report for various duties and has a strong turn-around time. Mark is not only heavily skilled but is SUPER professionally, friendly and simply put, "just takes care of business." If your looking for dependability, professionalism and comparable/competitive pricing, please don't limit your opportunity by NOT selecting Mark Davis & Associates. You'll see how exceptional this partnership can be. All the best, Charity

Herico's team did a great job for me. I never knew him before hand so I took a little chance but I was very happy with their work. They did some outside painting and changed some rotten boards for me. The paint job was very good. So was the edge work and a clean work site when they finished. And all for a reasonable price.

Jay built a bench for our kitchen table with storage underneath the seats, and did some other related work such as hanging/moving a chandelier and moving the electrical outlet So we could use but keep hidden inside. The work was great - the bench is sturdy, looks great, the seats raise to open for a storage area (and have piano hinges so they don’t close on the kids hands). Jay thought of all the small details and completed in a timely manner. He was also very transparent about everything. The cost quoted was the final cost, and was a fair price. This was pretty much our third attempt to get this built - other handymen had committed but either couldn’t or wouldn’t. Jay not only did a great job, but was great to work with, and we will definitely use him again and recommend.

Nate has done several internal and external carpentry and related handyman tasks (box gutter repair/replacement, door replacement, toilet and sink replacement, etc) at our house. He is a hard working, self starter that can be counted on to finish jobs in a timely basis. He is creative and works toward effective solutions to issues presented by an older home. Additionally, he is honest and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend him for your handyman tasks.

Derek is a good worker who quietly goes about his work..he accepts any work that you give him..but the problem is sometimes he takes up work that he is not comfortable one hundred percent.. for Example, he tried to change my thermostat but couldn't complete the installation and couldn't put the old one back. Now I'm in the process of hiring a electrician to get the job done which is gonna cost me.. Nevertheless he is very good with the usual handyman work and I'll surely recommend him to anyone who's looking for a handyman.. Just don't give him any hardcore electrical work

Steve has experience in all forms of handyman services. We were able to go from plumbing, to electric work, to water valves, all the way to exterior brickwork. It has been an easy partnership working with Steve and I recommend his work to anyone.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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 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.

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.
