They were very quick to respond to my request, communicated often and did a fantastic job repairing my roof. They even sent pictures along with the invoice that I could use to show evidence of the work done (we are selling our home and this was a repair we agreed to complete per the inspection). They were awesome to work with and I would use them again if I ever need to.

Jerry and Gary completed a punchlist of about 20 items around our house from changing light bulbs in a 20 ft ceiling to repairing plaster in a shower ceiling to refinishing an antique table. These two are trustworthy, talented repair artists. From quote to completed work they were on time, efficient, and detail oriented. They were meticulous with their work and left the area cleaner than they found it. I would highly recommend Jerry and Gary for handy man work.

Alex was on budget on on time. He was efficient and polite. Alex expertly defined the job (roofing repair) explained it so even I could understand and reviewed exactly what he and his crew had done. He even repainted a section of the trim close to the roof repair that had been damaged that I had not noticed. I would wholeheartedly recommend A&A Contractor and Alex.

Coastal Interior Design helped us with a problem on some fascia board on our house. Not only was he prompt, professional and very knowledgeable, but he was very honest. After he assessed the problem we were having, it turned out to be much easier to repair than we had anticipated. Very much appreciated his help, we are very pleased with the quality of his work and couldn't recommend any more highly!

Hurricane Matthew left us with siding damage that wasn't enough to cover our insurance deductible so it was up to us to fix it. I saw some comments on Facebook about Nailed It! so I decided to contact them. Shane and Sherri are two of the nicest people we ever met and they were very prompt in getting us an estimate. The work was started a few days later, took just a few hours and looked great! I'll be calling on them for everything related to home repairs going forward!

Climate Makers was actually my second choice on this project but when my first choice fell through, they were there for me. John came out to the house and was extremely professional in diagnosing the issue, and within the same day he had a crew out to get the job done. They did quality duct work as well as repairs. Would definitely recommend.

Hired John (owner) repair and retire my shower. It involved taking up and replacing marble tile, taking out and reinstalling frameless glass shower door and panel and replacing pan. He did a beautiful job. Left a clean work area and was trustworthy. We hardly knew he was there! Highly recommend. Will use again and for other types of services as well.

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.
