Do Not be off put because of the lack of reviews on the profile, I am brand new to Thumbtack. The strengths of going with me at this time is a wide open schedule and a professional who is eager to fill his online profile with excellent reviews. You will find that other contractors are likely to come in at a higher price and not be as flexible in scheduling. I run a low overhead individual operation with an interest giving myself time to do the job right, I build my schedules with contingency time so that I never end up in a situation where the work is rushed. Problem solving is my best assest and my motto is that I will treat your home like my own. I have over 7 years of experience traveling to homes and doing an array of onsite work. Something that experience taught me is that when doing work in someone's home you must treat every inch of that site with the respect it deserves and a gaurantee to spend the time to clean up after myself. I go to people's homes to create something they will be happy to live with and I love what I do. I have an incredible eye for detail and am quite aware that just one small detail that is wrong or out of place can spoil an entire job. You can expect someone who is fully interested in giving you the final product you desire with detailed updates and thorough walk-throughs throughout the process. Thank You for the consideration and I look forward to working with you!

I can't say enough good things about Jay, his company, and his crew! They provide amazing quality of work at an affordable price! From the very beginning, Jay was always professional and made himself available either by phone or in-person to answer any questions that I had and continually checked-in with me throughout the entire project to make sure everything was being completed to my satisfaction. This included careful, step-by-step planning on the exact location where the reinforcements would be built to support the hot tub. The entire crew is amazingly talented and very hard working - which shows in the quality of their work - and it all comes at a very competitive price! Jay's crew always went above and beyond! During the project, I realized that some critters had dug a couple holes around my house to get into the crawl space. Jay was really nice and had his crew seal all the holes with gravel, all while creating a mud-free storage area underneath my deck at no additional cost to me! I highly recommend them for any project needs you might have because their crews are skilled at numerous trades and even if a small part of your project ends up not being in their wheelhouse, they will definitely know someone who will get that part completed. Case in point, my foundation was originally poured too low so it allowed water in seep into my garage which meant it needed additional height added to it. So even though Jay's crew who was building my deck didn't specialize in foundation repair, they had a contact who was able to take care of that entire portion of the project, and again, at a very affordable price! And best of all, the quality of the concrete work is just as impressive as the quality of the deck work! Absolutely an A++ company and crew who all deserve an A++ recommendation!!! Thank you so much for such a beautiful deck, front porch, stairs, storage area and new foundation!!!! Cheers!!!

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.
