I have known Neal for thirty plus years. I have 19 rental units and He has worked on them for me for approximately ten years. He has done everything from roofing, framing, all types of flooring, windows, decks, porches, windows, cabinets , and most anything else you can imagine. Neal is an honest and good man. I consider him not only a good Handyman, I consider him my friend.

I am so glad that I went with Mark for my frame installation needs! Mark is hard-working, personable, methodical, and extremely effective at accomplishing the task at hand. I recently moved to a new apartment and built up a collection of posters, photos, cards, and a neon sign that needed to be properly hung on my walls. I knew that I needed a professional who could ensure proper spacing, leveling, and general aesthetic taste, but after getting some ridiculously high quotes from other LA-based framing services, I hoped that I would be able to find a handyman who could do the job at a reasonable rate... and was available on a Saturday. Well, Mark met those criteria and far surpassed them! He had every tool that could have been needed, including a portable vacuum, and despite working for over 3 hours, he never once slowed down or made any mistakes. He helped me to determine the best placement of certain frames, and he did a beautiful job in grouping the pieces, from six vinyl record frames to three differently sized family photos to four trading cards, making everything perfectly level and spaced. Finally, he installed a custom neon sign whose backing was far from precise and orderly, and he triple-checked his measurements to ensure that he didn't have to drill more holes than necessary. Throughout it all, Mark maintained a sense of humor, patience, and thoughtfulness. Mark delivers 5-star-service at every turn and if you want the privilege of working with a handyman who does an outstanding job and leaves you feeling better about the world, Mark is your man.

Mike built a tile walk-in shower in our basement. This involved moving a toilet which I didn’t know could be done. It turned out beautiful. He also completely renovated our master bathroom. Again, he was able to solve building issues and give us exactly what we wanted. We now have a large soaking tub with porcelain tile walls and surround. He handled all the electrical and plumbing. Outside resources handled the custom cabinets and vanity tops, and Mike brought it all together. He also installed a new cabinet in our laundry room with a new sink, faucet, and garbage disposal. There were other jobs that he did for us around the house. Some were updates to a 30-year old home, and the others were embellishments. One of the most important things about Mike is that we felt comfortable with him in our house even when we weren’t home. He is an honest family man. One thing that could be better—paperwork. Getting all the paperwork and receipts was a slow process. But I know he is converting to a new computerized system to handle this, so I would not expect this to be a problem in the future.

Bryan arrives 15 mins before the time we scheduled and immediately told us where the problem resides on all 3 small projects we have for him. Each one was completed under our satisfaction and the best of all; the final price was very affordable. I definitively recommend Bryan for any handyman job you have out there. I will continue doing business with him and his company.

Jeff did a phenomenal job on our home repairs. He pressure washed the front of the house, porch and part of driveway (I didnt think the rest was that bad, oops! We will be having him back to do the rest). The front of house looks brand new after the pressure washing. Jeff went above and beyond to fix the fence too. It hasn't looked this good ever! Great job and highly recommend!

Justin has taken care of jobs of all sizes for us. We have built a very reliable relationship. When we had discovered our deck had sever post issues, justin made the process of what we had to do very easy with complete regard to our financial stresses. He is also our "go to" guy for all our handy man needs for our rental property. With how busy my family is on a daily bases, it's reassuring to know if something goes wrong with our rental property that Justin is just a phone call away.

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.

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.

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.
