Kris and his team were great. They did the work when I was at work and I came home to a professionally paved driveway extension. They under-estimated the cubic yardage of cement needed, but worked with the cement company to get more. And though this did bring the total price up, it was fair and he kept the labor cost the same. I would definitely consider hiring again for future projects and recommend them to anyone who need professional help around the house.

I’ve asked InsideOut to do many a job ranging from small to large, general to highly skilled and labor intensive, all resulting in a finished product full of attention to detail and quality work. Makes each project worth showing off to others! He’s solely operated by word-of-mouth due to his continual impression of skills. He listens well to the wants and needs of home owners and takes careful attention to help save cost and time when possible.

Isaac did an excellent job on our hardwood flooring install. His crew worked so hard. There was about 600 +/- sq ft of existing tile and hardwood that they had to demo and another 600 +/- sq ft of carpet. If you have never had to demo tile and glue down hardwood before, it is no easy or clean task. Especially with a house full of furniture. Isaac and his crew took great care and worked really hard. No damage to any furniture or anything else in our home, cleaned up as much as possible each day, finished the project on time as negotiated, and his prices were really fair for the labor intensive work they did. I was very pleased with Isaac, would recommend him to anyone, and will certainly use him again on any future projects.

Carlos is very hardworking and honest. He made sure I was happy with all of his work. He truly wants to please his clients, and he offers suggestions in order to do the best job he can. Fyi, Carlos quotes his jobs for labor only. The client needs to be involved in getting the materials. We went to Home Depot together and got everything necessary. I highly recommend him.

It was a breath of fresh air working with Mr. Brian Napier. He had investigated the maintenance problems that I was having. He had given me his game plan and immediately FIXED what was needed with care and then some in a timely manner. He is trustworthy, reasonable and up front with his labor/ material cost which is a huge plus with any client that's on a tight budget . I will definitely call him back for my future maintenance projects. He's good ,prompt and knows what he's doing. He's a keeper!!! Thanks for doing such a great job.Much appreciated. I couldn't be happier. :-) Lenell B.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
