I had a leak caused by a handyman's work that ran from under my kitchen sink through the sealing of my basement. Eric came on Thanksgiving Day to repair the problem. I have an older house. He even changed some of the tubes that were wearing out. It was clear from the work he did that the handyman tried to take short cuts and I payed the price. Eric stayed until the work was done. He tested the system several times to make sure there were no more leaks.. and there haven't been any. I also found his prices to be reasonable. All in all, what was a nightmare ended up being a good experience. I would definitely use him again.

Marc was friendly and knowledgeable. He was on time, responsive and reliable. Marc assembled our new Ikea wall storage unit and did a great job. I'd hire him again to work on other "handyman" type projects around our home.

John was great! He responded quickly to my inquiry and came over the next day to address a range of electrical issues (fixed back porch light, fixed motion detection light, fixed a light switch that wasn’t sitting properly in the switch box) and other random needs ( e.g., fixing latch on backyard gate, fixed a bedroom door latch so the door could close). What I really appreciated is his explanation of everything that he was doing. He even ran out to pick up a piece I needed from Home Depot. His pricing was fair and work quality was great. I will definitely use him again as my go-to electrician/handyman. Thanks John

Joe is very hard working and honest handyman. He was able to complete installing very hard to assemble swing set which came with poor instructions and also wooden pieces were not marked. He had very positive and get it done attitude throughout the project and never gave up. He made sure the swing set was safe and secure for the kids to play once done with installation. He was very patient to answer several of our questions.

Mark was outstanding. He came on an extremely short notice, right on time--on Fourth of July weekend, no less. I had tried to assemble my couch and completely messed up the threading of the screws and bent one of the legs. That wasn't a problem, he had a set of tools ready and fixed the couch to make it even sturdier than it was constructed by the manufacturer. He did it in about less than an hour. Outstanding job, definitely calling him again for any future "handyman" services.

Paul is the most meticulous and detailed 'handyman' I have ever hired. Paul's work went above and beyond my expectations with his professionalism and expert work. Paul did an amazing job hanging numerous pictures in a specific layout that required an eye for detail. I highly recommend him for any type of work, I have yet to find anyone as good as Paul!

I’m so thrilled to find my go-to guy for any project in my home! From the moment Bortie responded to my project request, I was impressed with his detailed questions and attentive direction in order for him to submit the most accurate quote. Bortie was a respectful, professional, skilled worker. He brought everything I never would have realized he needed in order to complete the project. His work was neat and unobtrusive and the final result was just as I’d hoped. No sooner than he finished my first project I hired him for additional work and recommended him to all of my friends. I very highly recommend Bortie for all of your handyman needs.

Ernie was incredibly responsive and kind. We did run into some difficultly with one job in particular. Mainly a roof that had significant rotting which became apparent as the flashing got pulled away. Not only did we have rotting wood and insulation, Ernie discovered a large carpenter ant nest nestled in the roof along with all the rotting wood. Time will tell as to whether or not all of the issues were completely resolved however I do want to note Ernie's incredibly hard work and dedication to getting the job done. Danielle

Wagner showed just when he said he would and went straight to work. He is a likeable person and easy to talk with concerning the projects I wanted him to complete which he did to my satisfaction. His number has been saved to my contacts for future jobs. I will recommend him to anyone in need of a first rate handyman.

Very pleased with Bob and his crew. After two years of being jerked around by various contractors and friends who said they could "easily do this" we finally found RM Paolino Construction. Bob met with us on a Saturday and gave us a detailed estimate with some great cost-saving design changes for our kitchen and bathroom. We signed a contract that following Friday and by Monday morning our bathroom was gutted and on its way. What a relief it's been to deal with a real contractor after all time we wasted with other so called "professionals". Bob has kept us up to speed every step of the way and the bathroom looks great. Can't wait for kitchen to start. Highly recommend RM Construction to anyone looking for a professional, full service contractor who won't give you the run around!

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.
