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.

Martin Moore came on time to assemble a six piece dining room set. He was fast and I was happy he removed the cartons to my garage for me. I would hire him again if I need a handyman.

Wow. Mike is really an amazing handyman. I initially hired him to do some drywall work and patching in some areas. After we met him and realized how much he can do, we hired him to do: kitchen backsplash, retiling both bathrooms, changing multiple electrical outlets to decora, refinishing stair railing, changing door knobs throughout the house and crown moulding. He is in the middle of retiling and we are extremely happy with the detail and care he takes in him work. He's a very friendly guy with a great personality on top of his excellent work ethic. He cleans up after himself everyday and is very punctual. I highly recommend him.

Solid resource for those annoying handyman tasks. He arrived perfectly on-time and had all the right equipment. The job turned out to be more complicated due to something I overlooked and he wasn't the least bit fazed by it. The final job was exactly what I was hoping for.

Within 2 hours of initially bidding on my job, Sam was at my home (at 11pm on a Saturday!) assembling my bookcase/toy box! He did a great job, charged a very fair and reasonable rate, and even moved the bookcase to its designated spot, when I realized it would be too heavy for me to move myself. I will definitely reach out to Sam for any future handyman needs, and recommend him highly.

Paul went over and above and did even better than I had hoped. For example, when I asked him to paint my kitchen, I had no idea that he was going to paint the walls inside the back of the cabinets. Wow, looked brand new. He even took down ceiling lights when painting the ceiling. As for other repairs around the house, he did everything 200%. He worked on my home as it was his. If you need a handyman, hire him. You will have no regrets

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!

In addition to a speedy and professional lawn mowing, Bryan has also been working with me to strip layers of paint off the trim and molding inside my house (a job no one else seemed willing to help with). Although he has been working quite fast, he has taken great care not to damage the wood and brought his own heat gun and scraping tools with him. If you want someone detail oriented, Bryan is your man.

Nereo Lopez came out to give me an estimate and was able to make the repair right away. It turned out to be a little easier than he originally thought, so he gave me a discount! I don't think that's ever happened to me. The work he did looks great.

I can’t express how pleased I am with having hiring Aleksey to perform a much needed handyman task. He was responsive, punctual, polite, concerned, skilled, and very efficient. It’s always a bit scary to enlist the services from someone that you’ve never met before, but I am so glad that I ignored those fears and hired Aleksey. He is now my “Go-to-Guy.”

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.
