Prompt scheduling, even accomodated me at late notice. Juan arrived on time, and diagnosed a tricky pool switch problem in my crawl space as quickly as I think it could have been done. Very reasonable price. Will use again, and certainly recommend.

Was prompt to show up, gave honest advice, and went the extra mile to make sure he didn't have to make a hole in our ceiling by finding crawl space we didn't even know we had!

Josh handled some repairs and installs that came up during a home inspection. He was very responsive and came out that week and took care of everything in half a day. We were so pleased with the timeline and result that we used Summit for additional work on the house. They installed a vapor barrier in the crawl space and once again, the timeline and finished work were excellent. I would not hesitate to call them again for any household work.

Seth built a flat-roofed structure and attached it to our existing house. He tied in the flat roof to the existing peaked-roof, built the walls, installed the windows and doors and finished the flat roof on the new structure. He also built a crawl-space above an existing utility room inside the main house. In the crawl-space, he installed a floor and also installed a pull-down staircase for access. He built custom kitchen cabinets inside the main house, which included a built-in refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher and stove with a vent-a-hood. He also repaired a section of roof on the main house that was leaking and repaired a part of the wood flooring in an upstairs bedroom. In the same bedroom upstairs, he finished the ceiling out with wood. Also, in two upstairs closets, Seth built shelving for storage of linens in one, and clothing in the other. Overall the work went very well considering the many problems he faced with working on existing and older structures. I couldn't ask for more. We are very pleased with the end result and would recommend him in the future.

Adam has completed 3 projects for me and did an excellent job on all! He put a new roof on my detached garage, patched a hole in the crawl space of my house to keep rodents from coming in, and built shelving in a closet. He showed up on time, worked efficiently and cleaned up during and after job. I have referred Adam to friends and will be calling him again for new projects. Adam brought samples, provided recommendations and coordinated with the roofing company to deliver the materials at a specifc time. I am very pleased with Adam's work.

I needed some help with removing storage items from a crawl space about 12' above my garage. Sam was very professional and responsive during the vetting process, which was what made it easy to go with him for this job. He arrived on time, was professional during the job and got everything done quickly & carefully. He was very mindful and respectful of my items. Will use Sam's Services in the future for other projects and will recommend to friends.

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.
