Gary was very professional and knowledgeable in a variety of tasks, he is punctual and you just simply can't beat the price for his services. I recommend Gary for any handyman work that you just can't find the time to do yourself or if you simply don't know how. Give Gary a call and you won't be disappointed.

James did a variety of jobs for me- plumbing, electrical, sprinkler system. Work was done quickly and well. The bill ended up being a bit less than expected. Finding a good, trustworthy handyman when moving to a new city can be difficult, but I think I hit the jackpot with James.

Constructed a 16' X 12' deck with composite decking. The final product was better than expected. Armando and his son took the time to do it right. They were very understanding and able to work with our last minute requests. I highly recommend him and will also use him again.

Started with all interior walls including closets - had to paint them before heavy furniture was moved in. Exceptionally detail oriented, cost conscious - saved me money on paint, great prep work, and cleaned up everything daily. Found things I had missed, gave me options to fix them and delivered a wonderful service. Several months later, called him back to do trim, windows and doors. Again excellent work, delivered a great finished product. Since then, I have used Jeff for handyman chores: replace shower faucet, caulk tub, seal gaps outside of house, rebuilt base for desk, and many other things. Jeff is reliable, reasonably priced and never leaves anything undone. Highly recommend him for any projects. He charges by the project or for smaller jobs charges hourly. Prices were reasonable. He is trustworthy - gave him code to come into house even when we weren't there.

Robert was able to pick up my request and turn it around in about 24 hours in this case. They tackled my project in a quick and efficient manner, but still paid attention to small details. Would definitely recommend, and will call back whenever I need handyman services around my apartment.

We contracted Nestor and his crew to paint our kitchen, great room, master bedroom, master bath, water closet and laundry room. From baseboards to trim and ceilings, the job was completed in a very timely manner. We also asked him to paint and seal our front porch floor and patio. Everything looks great! Nestor and his crew we're on time, super friendly and very neat. Our house looks fabulous! We highly recommend Nestor to do your job!

    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.

    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.
