My serviceman was Dennis Jr., and he was professional, patient and provided knowledge on what he was doing. His customer service was A+; he took a look at our sink dispenser (it had a slight drip and we didn't use it very often) to determine if the pipe needed tightening or something else was the problem - it was the tightening of the pipe and he did it for no extra charge! I will use Just Call Dennis Handyman Services again for any plumbing needs.

Dale and his team were very professional, worked quickly and efficiently and were upfront with their cost. It's great to find a contractor who is timely, cost competitive, keeps their word and gets the job done right the first time. Highly recommended!

Davis Handyman Home Improvement Service provided exceptional service and quality work on several diverse home projects that needed quick attention. We had a few drywall repairs, exterior door and door frame repairs and fascia replacement on a segment of the exterior. Mr. Davis professionally responded to our inquiry and provided a reasonable estimate to complete the work. He started and finished on schedule and kept me informed of his progress and was quick to address any concerns. We would use his services again and would recommend him to those looking for a responsive and multi-talented handyman.

I hired Goggin Floor Installation and More to do several projects at my house to include installing a new kitchen floor, putting up light fixtures, remodeling 2 bathrooms, crown molding in the dining room, building a new pool deck, and outdoor electrical work. I could not be happier with the results of all of my projects!! Dave Goggin is the best handyman service I ever experienced, he is extremely reasonable, honest, trustworthy, and truly cares about each project he takes on, but more importantly, he cares about the customer. When I initially put out my request on Thumbtack for service, he contacted me right away, came out to my house the next day to give me an estimate, and had the estimate prepared that same night. I had other contractors come out as well to give estimates and it is now over a month later, all of my projects have just about been completed by Dave Goggins, and I am still waiting on estimates from the other contractors! Dave is also a great communicator. He walked me through every step of each project and always maintained communication. He has been in the business a long time so was able to walk in to every room or project and visualize exactly what I wanted then give me recommendations and feedback on what would work best given his experience. He also had the experience to give accurate on the spot estimates. I went with every recommendation that Dave had and I am very pleased with how everything turned out, way better than what I had could have come up with! I have Dave on speed dial now and I plan to use his services for every project I have around the house. I give him 5 stars!!

We lost our long-time handyman when he moved away and subsequently tried 4 or 5 others, none of whom were satisfactory. Then we found Shane! He charges a fair price, is friendly and competent, calls back or messages promptly, and checks up after his visit to be sure the work is satisfactory. He is also good at giving suggestions on how to improve the space he worked on, and cleans up the space when he is finished. We will definitely continue to call on Shane for work around our house and have recommended him to friends and neighbors. I recommend him to you, too!

Troy did a great job! We are very pleased with the back splash he installed. He was very prompt and he stayed with the price that he quoted. Troy also helped me with suggestions considering this was the first back splash I had done. He is very professional and I will certainly use him again as a handy man. Thank you Troy!

We hired Jeff to install some kitchen cabinets and build a deck under them, then trim them out. Jeff is punctual, reasonably priced, neat, personable and a real craftsman- every quality you could want in a contractor or Handyman! I am very particular and OCD, he worked with me every step of the way and really helped my vision come to fruition. Not to mention, he was wonderful with my 3 very young children and respectful of my home (taking shoes off etc). We are having Jeff back for a full bathroom remodel and cannot wait to work with him again, would highly recommend.

        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.
