Needed a hot water replaced in a downtown condo, and Jeff gave a reasonable estimate especially in light of Hiller HVAC giving us a $2300 estimate. After talking to Hiller, I was told we needed a shutoff installed and that half the building needed water shutoff to do the job. I immediately hired Jeff who after inspecting the unit stuck to his $800 estimate to replace the unit, install new supply lines and eventually returned to replace a shutoff valve at no expense. Jeff was upfront, honest thorough and proficient. He is now our go to HVAC/ plumber. A complete professional.

I can't speak highly enough of Tim and Wanda. What a dynamic duo!! Tim is a master craftsman, and Wanda is a design genius. It was so great having both of them spear-head my renovation project. Tim did whatever was needed; Wanda added that interior design touch. They were professional, reasonably priced, and so nice. It was a pleasure to get to know them both, but their work was fantastic. I highly recommend them for your "handyman" or renovation project. You won't be disappointed!!

Greg responded to my inquiry very quickly AND gave me same day service. We passed a few thumbtack emails back and forth and I accepted his first quote for hanging artwork and whiteboards in our office. He was extremely reasonable as to pricing! Prompt, courteous and very professional. I will definitely call him again in the future for handyman work. He truly is a jack of all trades!!

Allen was FANTASTIC! He was able to do my install last minute in the same day. He was very flexible and even picked up the wall mount that I wanted (at a great price BTW) and worked around my schedule to get it done that day. I would definitely hire him again for other handyman projects.

Victor was awesome! He was willing to come on a Saturday morning and install a new water heater. He brought/installed new parts and even hauled the old water heater away (which was totally unexpected and a HUGE help). He was completely finished within a couple of hours, and the new unit looks great. Can't say enough good things about Victor's work, and he is going to be my go-to plumbing guy from now on!

I had initially hired a handyman to do some work around our new house, and there was some drywall that was stained from an old leak. Our handyman tried to repair it, but ran into some issues getting it flush on the ceiling. While he knew drywall, he was not an expert. In comes Mike with MVM Construction, and he was able to swing by, take a look, give me a reasonable quote, and had guys there by that afternoon since I was hoping to get it done before move in! Whatever issue our handyman ran into was no problem for Mike's guys. They quickly patched things up, and it looked beautiful. As they were doing the work they made some marks on the wall, so while the drywall mud was drying, they took a trip to the store, got a perfect match on the paint color for the wall, and fixed that, too! That gave them the time to put on the second coat of mud, get the ceiling painted, and you'd never know the drywall was cut out. Very impressive work. The quote was a little higher than others I had received, but it was worth every penny.

Camellia went above and beyond and prepared my house to list for sale, after she was through, the house was spotless. Stayed longer than I expected her to and was very thorough, even doing things I did not expect like cleaning the interior of the oven. All this for the original price without any up charge for the extra work she did. I could not be pleased with the experience, and would definitely hire again.

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.
