Glenn installed a bamboo wood floor in our 1950's home. The floor is beautiful. Glenn is very knowledgeable about home repairs and was inventive when we had to adjust for some older home issues. I would definitely use Glenn again for home repair issues.

Zeev promptly responded to my request within 2 hours for plumbing repair on a leaky pipe under my sink. He exceeded my expectations by arriving later in the day and fixed the leaking! Zeev went out of his way to go to Ace Hardware to pick up a part that would fix my issue. I highly recommend Zeev for any plumbing needs!

John and his crew worked on a new rental home my husband and I bought back in November. He put up a new fence, built an amazing entertainers dream deck, gutted both the master bathroom and the terribly dated kitchen. The finished product left me speechless. From the counters to the cabinets to the fixtures and all the way to the wood choice on the deck it was a smooth, carefree process. I was so amazed with his professionalism and communication through the whole construction that I called him back to put in tile and flooring. The house is so beautiful that we almost disn't want to rent it but move in ourselves. This was our first rental house flip; we are in the process of looking for another home to fix up and when we do, we definitely plan on calling John and the guys at A&C to get the job done. I highly recommend to all my friends and family without any hesitation. Job well done!!

Tim did a great job repairing a hole in the drywall in our dining area. His pricing was reasonable and he was very accommodating with my schedule. The repair was done quickly and blends in nicely with the rest of the wall. If you're looking for someone professional and reliable, Tim is your guy!

I work a for a mortgage company. We needed repairs completed based on an appraisal that showed work that needed to be done before closing. Jon was able to go to the site the same day and get the job done right away at a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend!

I am giving Eric 5 stars for an exterior house painting job. My house was built in 1948 with lots of detail and issues that needed repair and attention. His bid was not the lowest, but he was the most knowledgeable. He has an excellent eye for the smallest detail and addressed them all, even some dry rot. He has good general knowledge of general contracting in addition to wonderful painting skills. He was on the job every day and his helpers were excellent. I am completely happy with Eric's job. The house looks great and everything was well cleaned up. Yup...5 stars!

Victor got in touch with me and was able to come out to temporarily solve our issue with water. He git here just before 1pm and just left before 10pm. Turns out it was a tee in the hot water feed to the kitchen ssink and dishwasher split. The pipe is some sort of PVC and splitting as he kept trying to repair. He finally had to put an exterior sleeve around by bad pipe and then his replacement into the other side of the sleeve. We figured the pressure “thump” of hot water turn on/off plus some syof bad PVC (maybe it was exposed to UV before installation 21+ years ago?). Victor did not give up until we had water again and his repair will last!! I will definitely hire this company again and ask specifically for Victor!! I’m also going to call the company Monday and tell them what a great guy they have!

Gary took my oddball request for repair of a dress maker's mannequin. Looked at photos, gave me a quote, I delivered and he worked his magic on my mannequin. Returned it speedily in great order. In fact, it is more sturdy and functional than it has ever been. I'll keep Gary in mind and recommend him to friends for any repair issues. Thanks Gary!

Rob contacted me immediately from my Thumbtack inquiry and came out to estimate the cost for the fence repair I needed done. I liked his price and he commenced work within the week. He did not try to oversell services and was able to use the fencing materials already available, which none of the other repair bids I'd previously received seemed to be able to do. Rob is nice to work with and did a great job on my fence! So Grateful!

I wanted to surprise my niece with a new fence while she was away visiting her mother. A young newlywed on a tight budget, their new home came with a fence that allowed her pups to escape. Jesus responded quickly, bid a fair price and started/completed the project in a timely fashion. We are all pleased with his work and would definitely use him again. Don’t hesitate to call Jesus for your fencing needs!

Serge was great with his communication and let us know early that he was running late. When he arrived he was friendly and listened to the details of the job carefully. His work is very good and professional. He was considerate of our home and cleaned up after his work was completed. He even took the time to repair a stair step in our home without charge. We will use Serge again for our future drywall needs.

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.
