I cannot say enough nice things about the wonderful and thorough job Steve did. He cleaned up the area from the basketball pole removal with the cement and dirt and debris. He topped it off with extra top soil with sod on it. Later in the day as I pulled in to the driveway, I had to look hard to find the exact spot where all the hard work had been done only hours before. Steve has a very strong work ethic. He is available for work on roofs, cars, plumbing. I as so glad we called T & C. Christina made all the arrangements and was very accommodating regarding setting up a time. If there were more than 5 stars to rate.....I would add additional stars. B.Rosen

We hired Robert to do a pressure washing job for our entire driveway and carport area. Robert was very responsive and competitive on his bid. He was also there when he said he would be. The quality of work was very good. I think the job was bigger and tougher than he thought but it was done completely, timely and very much to our satisfaction. We would use Robert again.

I received the best service on my hall getting painted. Phil did a great job and did the edging like a pro. Mitch did the power washing of my entire house, including the sidewalks and driveway. He worked diligently for hours, getting all surfaces clean of mildew and dirt. This was a huge job since it hadn't been done for years. The guys were respectful, honest, and I don't think they took any breaks. Work, work, work, is what I saw at all times. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.

Mr. Calabrese was very professional and worked efficiently. I hired him to clean the gutters. He was even flexible enough to take on a little more than originally scheduled. He left my roof, driveway and sidewalk even cleaner than he found it. I highly recommend him.

Paul came out to replace a large wooden gate with a double gate for my property. From the estimate to the actual demo and construction, the process was quite swift and he was always in communication about progress and completion. Quality work at a fair price. I recommend his services to anyone looking for a great looking and soundly built fence/gate.

James, his brother, (and his wife) all came to my house to take a look at my gate. I had only put in my request an hour or so before, and was pleasantly surprised that he was able to come by so quickly. James offered various options as to how to keep the gate from sagging. Most of the work was performed last night and then James and his brother returned today to finish things up. He grew up in this business, is very dependable, and did what he said he would do- fixed my gate! I would definitely recommend him for gate repairs.

Tom is great! I bought a house just over a year ago. He has basically redone my house. He has always been friendly, on-time, cost conscious with materials, and has competitive prices for a professional of his experience. I have always felt safe around him and am comfortable with him in my house even if I can't be there. I would recommend him to anyone! If you are interested in the work he has done for me, see below. Electrical: all fixtures, replaced all outlets and switches, installed additional outlets and cable jacks, rerouted switches, garage door opener. Walls/Ceilings: scraped popcorn and refinished ceilings, major wallpaper removal, repaired holes (big) in walls and ceiling, retaped and finished broken seams, fresh paint throughout (the best painting I have ever seen). Flooring: removed carpet, installed hardwoods, installed travertine tile, repaired subfloor water damage. Plumbing: replaced various water lines, replaced broken water heater, installed new toilets. Misc: removed all old appliances and installed new appliances including a built in microwave, repaired rotted wood on exterior trim, painted exterior door/trim, pressure washed driveway, trimmed tree limbs back from house, installed new towel bars/tp holders, removed plate mirrors and installed medicine cabinets, refinished some cabinets, changed all the cabinet hardware, replaced all door hinges and knobs.

Since I moved to N. Charleston about two years ago, I needed to have numerous repairs done to my home both inside and outside. I needed a cement walk leading to the front entrance, a new driveway, a small enclosed back porch built, landscaping, various plumbing and electrical work, painting porch and installing new fencing in back yard, etc., Nick Fazi was the only contractor who answered my requests promptly, worked with me in a professional manner and I found to be honest and reliable. He answered all my questions and sent excellent workers to provide the services required. I find the quality of work to be to my satisfaction and found his workers to be dependable and courteous. All work was done in a timely fashion and Nick follows up on all work to make sure everything is done to his satisfaction and mine. I am quite satisfied with East Coast Doctors and will continue to utilize this company for future needs.

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.
