Mr. Godfrey showed up early and ready to get the job rolling. He completed some jobs that have been needing done here for several years; put up some blinds, replaced a shower curtain rod (needed cut to fit), wall mounted a fan, reattached the dishwasher to the counter, installed a new spigot on an outside water line for the garden, did some repair work in my computer room. He and his wife were such nice people; I enjoyed shadowing him as he worked, and his wife and my husband enjoyed chatting about gardening and natural health. I'd hire him back again, but it was a long drive for them to come here.

I purchased a new single stall garage door from Garage Entry Systems and Andrew did the installation. He did a great job. Andrew also went above and beyond by repairing my existing garage door opener at no charge. He's a good family man, honest, courteous, timely and went out of his way to satisfy his customer. My wife and I highly recommend him.

To say Bill went above and beyond is an understatement. We hired Bill for interior painting at our new house in Murrysville early May 2016. Our primary concern was schedule, as we were looking to have painting completed prior to new flooring being installed. Bill committed to our schedule upfront, even though the interior painting work required wall paper removal and would be time consuming. Bill went above and beyond to get the job done, working late almost every day while on the job. Bill was able to finish a 3 week project in 2 weeks as a result, and alleviated our concerns with timing of our improvements prior to our move. Bill was friendly and willing to assist us while we were working at the house together, and was not just focused on his task at hand. As a result, we found more things for him to help us with, including installing railings on a balcony and adjusting an exterior door. Bill is clearly trustworthy and reputable. I highly recommend Bill’s services to anyone requiring handy work at their home or elsewhere.

I wanted my floors redone and had several companies quote the floors. A1 was the only company that said they could repair the stain spots in the entryway and they delivered. The job turned out better than I expected. They were fast, clean, and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend A1 they are a customers friendly company.

Very flexible and accommodating. Originally hired to clean one house and added a second at the last minute. Taleah took the job and did a great job on both homes. She was able to remove a heavy pet odor from the basement of our new home and went above and beyond to make sure the house was clean to our liking. Great communication, thorough, friendly, and cares about your home. Would hire again.

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.
