Jon was initially contacted to repair a gutter and downspout that was damaged by a falling tree. Not only did he take care of that project quickly, he also repaired a sliding door track that had been damaged. Jon's work was done timely, effectively, and for a good price. I will certainly keep his number in my contacts for future handyman projects.

I had an outdoor light that a previous handyman had "fixed", but still wasn't working. Bill came in and taught me something new about my house of 20+ years (I had an additional switch for that light!), replaced the light and the switch. He was thorough, extremely knowledgeable and left making sure it all worked properly. I would strongly recommend him!

Ed replaced two flapper kits in our toilets. The most important about Ed is that he never gives up to the challenge as complicated and difficult it be. Good job, will hire Ed for other handyman projects for sure.

I thought I hired a decent, experienced handyman but proven wrong. Jake insisted the gate I built was higher than the fence line. I agreed that he could cut a little off the bottom. He cut way too much off, which left a gap that my dog could get under. I think he knew he screwed up but took the money and left. Never got back in touch with me even though i talked to him about additional work around the house - another indicator that he knew he screwed up. The gate took me hours to build and he should've offered to make it right by replacing it when he cut too much off. Very disappointed!

I highly recommend Vince to anyone looking for a reliable handyman. We had an issue with our back door not being secured to the building. It was a safety issue as well as a major problem with ice buildup around the door frame in this cold weather. Vince was able to get out there same day, make the repair, and the price was well within my budget. We're so happy to have this done!

I wish I could choose every highlight option for this pro! (It only allows three but he was also responsive and professional!) He remained in contact with me at all times while we set up at date. His price was very reasonable. His workmanship was clean (installation of a storm door.) He was prompt, polite, and completed his work in a timely manner. He provided explanations that I could comprehend. He was very honest in what my options were. I will refer him and use him in the future for all of my handyman household needs!!

What a relief it has been to have finally found a trustworthy, professional handyman! The first thing Steve did was tell me requests I thought I might have needed that weren't necessary--literally saving me thousands of dollars that I would have paid him and he easily could have done. Not only that, he could do anything from painting to electrical to landscaping. I cannot recommend him enough! He will be my go to guy from here on.

Hector Enrique showed up right on time, was friendly and personable. He did the job quickly (re-attaching aluminum covering on a barge board (on my roof). He had time leftover in the hour so he asked what else he could do for me. All I could think of was my gutters, so he cleaned those for me. I will certainly ask for him again, the next time I need a handyman.

I contacted Mustard General Contracting, Home Improvements, Handyman Service to install and stain four interior doors. Mark was highly professional and efficient in his work. He did a superb job of matching the stain of the other doors. I particularly liked the fact that he responded quickly to my call. I will be using him for additional projects in preparation for selling our house.

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.
