Tony was the most professional, reasonable, analytical, friendliest, knowledgeable, punctual and courteous handyman my wife and I have ever met. In pursuit of our unsuccessful attempts to repair leaky kitchen and bathroom faucets, we found Tony through Thumbtack and hired him based on his excellent quality of work and competitive pricing. He successfully resolved our problems in the most proficient and cost effective manner no matter how long it took and always put the customer's opinions and requests above his own. My wife and I were so impressed with his exceptional quality of work that we decided to use him for any and all of our handyman service needs. He has an awesome personality and a delight to work with.

Mike was wonderful. He arrived on time, was very efficient and incredibly quick at putting in my window AC unit (I tried for 2 hours the day before!!) as well as putting in the brackets for my blackout curtains on my dormer Windows. My new place is a breezy 63F with privacy and I couldn't be happier 😎. I highly recommend him for anyone needing a very kind, respectful, swift handyman who doesn't cut corners or overcharge. I will definitely be contacting him again if I ever need any help with house-related things.

Loved loved loved working with E! I hired him to paint the interior of a home I was about to move into. Painted every single room plus all the trim inside my home for an extremely reasonable price- he even offered to come back after we move in to touch up anything that may get dinged up during the moving in process. Completed the job a few days early as well. Open communication throughout the entire project. I will totally hire him again in the future for any other handyman jobs I have!

The pulley system on my garage door snapped one day, and Bill was able to come out and fix it the same day I put in my request on Thumbtack. He was professional and personable, did a great job, clearly knows what he's doing, and I will absolutely hire him to help around here again. His hourly rate is the same as another handyman we've used, which leads me to believe it's pretty standard around here.

Was very pleased with Sam the Handyman! Having replaced 3 of my own bathroom exhaust fans, I immediately saw the downstairs guest one was a problem due to certain installation issues the builder made. Decided to turn to outside help and Sam and his partner John pulled me through what would have been a very frustrating and, dare I say expensive process. Their no muss, no fuss experience pulled me through. As jobs crop up, I know who to call.

Randy thanks for fixing my Truth crank vinyl replacement window. Services planned during free estimate were no different than those rendered. Once the scheduled parts were ordered, we got exactly what we needed without being overcharged. Friendly customer service from a very professional team. When hubby doesn't have time to do the needed house repairs, we will call upon Randy--our new handyman. Thanks for our first well done job. We look forward to working with you and De again.

Michael Kiesling has completed various jobs for us from a condo rehab to smaller side projects. In my interactions with Michael I found him to be very professional, knowledgeable, dependable, honest, trustworthy and personable. He was able to provide accurate quotes at the onset of the project. Not only did he offer great value for the money but he also generated great quality results that are without reproach. He has met all of my requirements and addressed all my concerns without issue. I am highly recommending MIchael to anyone who needs a skilled handyman for their home improvement and maintenance projects.

Our flooring issue was complicated. Pet damage (urine) had to be addressed and permanently fixed. We moved from expensive carpeting to high-end waterproof vinyl flooring (lumber Liquidators). Removal, replacement of sound/insulation board, installation of new flooring and all trim work was meticulously done to perfection! We could not be happier..highly recommend this contractor.

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.
