We won't be calling anyone besides Ricky for around the home repairs. He was incredibly professional and took time to do the job, as well as an extra last minute one, without complications or damage. Ricky is exceptional and we highly recommend him.

Johnny responded quickly, confirmed his appointment, showed up when he said he would, and did the job in half the time he said he would, despite the fact that he had to repair a part of the fan that came apart during shipping!

He had the front yard done and weeds gone, all before I even got home from work. He did all the backyard with all weedeating. He was very polite and quick. Great job! I'll definitely have him back!

Phillip responded first to my repair request. Got out there first thing the next day, which was a Saturday no less. He didn't charge a weekend fee and got the issue resolved with my tenant's AC. Did a great job taking care of my tenant, which in turn means he did a great job taking care of my investment! I will seek him out again for any future AC repair work that I need to be done.

Gets the job done better than anyone else will! Affordable and flexible hours, even on weekends. The owner was friendly, is reliable, trustworthy and will get the job done correctly. We asked him to return to do more work for us, based on the first repair work that he performed. I've never written a feedback rating for anything one or any service before. That should say something.

Our home was flooded with water and the damage was tremendous. It happened from a pipe blowing off its cap from a very poor plumber's work who forgot to cinch the sleeve against the cap and stem in our upstairs bathroom wall's water pipe. We were lucky one of us was home to turn off the major water valve in the house. Kaphar came out immediately at an extremely late hour as soon as they heard about our incident. They came the same night it happened and were at our house within 20 minutes. They found the problem in the wall in about 5 minutes! The Kaphar professional that came that night was Chase Holmes. From that point forward our home was in great hands with the owner Charles, Chase and many wonderful team members doing quick demolition and water mitigation with sophisticated moisture review and analysis until everything was dry and ready for repair. The damage was extensive from several upstairs rooms to major portions of the downstairs. We even had structural issues caused from water soaking an area upstairs which made the heavily weighed section of our home sag down about 6 to 8 inches! The whole section had to be torn down and rebuilt. It's perfect! The repairs are impeccable, the team members experts in their field of construction work and all of them were very polite, considerate and professional. Kaphar was quick to take care of our home, and they also made sure to contact us and visit our home at least once a day if not two or more times a day. Their communication was clear, next steps were explained and planned WITH US throughout the whole process and the ATTENTION TO DETAIL made our home look brand new - it's 1,000 times better than when we bought it new! And the best part is they SHOWED UP WHEN they said they would, did EXACTLY what they said they would, worked above and beyond taking EXTRA STEPS to fix what needed to be fixed including correcting a different contractors poor workmanship from repairs made when our home was damaged from the 2013 tornado. They hauled off the damaged, unused materials, cleaned up everyday, and hired a professional cleaner several times throughout the process to keep our home clean and tidy while under construction. They worked with our insurance company on our behalf ensuring that all parties were treated FAIRLY AND EQUITABLY and satisfactorily. It was very comforting to have Kaphar by our side during this disaster. They gave us advice, offered options and kept us informed, and all along the way they educated us about what they were doing and why they were doing it. They provided an exceptional customer service experience, gave us quick responses to our questions or concerns, included us in decisions in every step and we TRUSTED them implicitly. We cannot express our GRATITUDE enough. We had someone care for our home, treating it as if it was their own in Kaphar. We highly recommend Kaphar, they are a very dependable and reputable firm. Their work is superior to ANY other contractor we have worked with - and unfortunately for us we've needed major repairs much too often. No one else will EVER touch our home again, Kaphar has us as life-long customers! Trust us, when you need help fixing your property after a major incident call Kaphar. You will be ecstatic about their service and so pleased with the exquisite end results from their work. We are expressing our gratefulness for them and giving them the highest praise and scores possible. We would give them 10 stars if that was an option. We hope you never have a disaster like this in your home but if you do choose to hire Kaphar. We are so happy! Kaphar is a top-notch company.

Rockin R Services really ROCKS. Very pleasant and will perform professionally on any of the tasks that I have requested. Good about calling to let me know if they are running late or even early to see if they can come earlier than scheduled. I am not through hiring Richard and Gina and actually look forward to next job I will have for them. So far painting, clean and repair rain gutter, clean out storage bin and organize, clean and organize work shop, haul litter to dump, clean house including wood floors, dusting, help in hanging and arranging art-work (photos) on walls. They like good music also - As their name implies they really ROCK!!! Thanks Thumbtack. Much better than other hiring services I have dealt with.

Janae inc. installed a wood fence for me. The job was tough because of tree roots and rocks etc. Janae’s team worked hard on the installation and the fence really added a great look to my home. The owner of the company “Janae” was knowledgeable and helpful in the design and material selection. The cost was less than I had expected which was a very good surprise for me. Thanks.

We needed ceramic tile in each bedroom and also backsplash in the kitchen. And we received several bids and although all of them guaranteed their service. It was LDN who we went with due to David's attention to detail in explaining each step by step process. And although we had changes, his motto was " the customer is always right". Me and my wife are very happy with his expertise and his attitude towards us as a customer. We also hope to use him again in the future with projects we have to do on our house.

Craig is the best. I’ve worked with him for many years, on well over five homes now, and he is the only home inspector I will use. Craig knows his stuff. He’s honest, thorough, and doesn’t cut corners.

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.
