Quick, effecient, precise, and knowledgeable. Plus he has a very reasonable labor cost. I'm glad I hired him to install our garbage disposal.

Dan did a great job installing two outdoor faucets for me as well as a new bathroom faucet. Very professional and trustworthy. The job was a little more involved than we originally thought, but he did not charge for the additional labor. Will certainly use him again for plumbing repairs.

Responded to my service request within minutes. Worked with my daughter and even walked her through issues. Capped off sprinkler system so they would have water to the house, then got the job done in half a day. Sam even wanted to walk me through repairs so I could DYI, but I had fixed it before, and the time and labor for me VS. hiring Sam was way more efficient and economical. Great job Sam!

Juan and his crew were great! Juan helped me figure the deck size that fits my needs, he was great at pricing out the materials and labor, and on the day of he finished in one day and cleaned up all trash and debris before leaving. Overall, it was a great experience and if I ever need anything else done I would not hesitate to call.

Heater and fan wouldn't work in my townhome. Had one of the towns HVAC company check it out and they couldn't fix the problem. Said it needed an electrician to come in and troubleshoot. I turned to Thumbtack and in a short while, i had a response. Long story short, summit solutions came over on SUNDAY and fixed the problem. Post fix he provided me with answers to all my questions (aka what was wrong, what was the labor/parts breakout). I was very pleased to get the work done in a timely manner as the temp inside the townhome was getting pretty chilly. Great service overall.

Thom is a knowledgeable, good handyman. His pace is perhaps a tad slower than other handymen, so allot your time accordingly. Overall, I'd recommend.

Junior did an excellent job on our garage apartment floor. I had the flooring I wanted to use and ask for labor only, he was great to also identify other needs for finishing like transition thresholds. He ran out and picked them up to finish the job professionally. Thank you!

Bruce came over, evaluated the project, gave me a labor price, then researched the materials and gave me a price for that too. He was early or on time and he finished the work in the number of days he said he would. He was courteous and he cleaned the job site up after completion.

After getting multiple quotes on having my popcorn ceilings scraped and SMOOTHENED in my 2100sqft home I had chose to go with Trey and Mitchell. I talked with Trey quite a bit and felt most comfortable with him and having them in my home while I was at work. They do the work themselves without hiring laborers which made me feel good as that holds them personally responsible. The project took a little longer than expected, but at the end of the day, they did exactly what I wanted...smooth ceilings! They kept me informed throughout the process. After scraping the ceiling, taping, mudding, sanding and test painting, they were not happy how it was coming out the first go around (knowing what I was expecting) so Trey called me to let me know they were going to mud the entire ceiling, ultimately starting over and would not charge me anything for the extra labor. The end result was exactly what I visioned. Trey and Mitchell are great to work with and I plan to use them again when its time for base boards and crown molding, thanks again guys!

We've been wanting to remodel our kitchen since we moved in summer 2011. The house was built in 1999, and the kitchen looked it. We connected with Holly around 3 months ago. Her reviews are stellar and she is well-respected in our community. Holly provided us a quote that was competitive and comprehensive. We compared it with two other contractors; weighed various factors, i.e., labor, supplies, workmanship, proposed timeline, etc., etc., and decided that Holly was the best choice. We have extremely busy schedules. Holly managed the remodel every step of the way. She helped us make choices regarding colors, granite, and tile. In fact she came to our home with samples on a Saturday morning, since that was best for our schedules, and made great suggestions that we used ultimately. Everyone on her team was outstanding - granite, painting, tile. Attention to detail and quality of work was stellar. We felt our home was in good hands at all times, and were never let down. Holly asked for 10-14 days to complete the project. It was finished in 9 days. We could not be happier.

How lucky are my wife and I to have found Cesar. We have many good things to say about Cesar beginning with he is an expert craftsman and a perfectionist. We were looking for a contractor to remodel our master bathroom, which included extensive demolition, moving the shower, installing a larger bathtub, rerouting the plumbing under the concrete slab, all new marble tile (floor and walls), new marble counter tops, a new bath cabinet, texturing walls, installing a frame less glass shower enclosure, painting (he had to paint the bathroom twice because of a poor color choice). During the process of doing the above remodel, we decided that 2 upstairs bathrooms needed new floor tile which Cesar also did for us. Additionally, we had new granite installed in our kitchen and we asked Cesar to install the limestone backsplash for us. Cesar contracted for us to have a spice cabinet built to enclose the exposed side of the refrigerator, which turned out spectacular. I cannot say enough good about Cesar and his work ethic. He is extremely honest, very thorough, extremely respectful of you and your property. Cesar knows what he is doing and he does not take shortcuts to get the job done, you can be sure that he will do the job the right way. During the time he spent in our home, Cesar and his great colleague Ozzie (Oswaldo) became part of the family. When the job was done we felt like he was moving out. Sort of sad to see them go. Cesar and Ozzie will do well because they make a great team, they are very honest, and they have a superior work ethic, and a talent for remodeling. Above it all, we found Cesar to price his labor very reasonably. For our job, he presented us with the actual invoices for all materials without markup. Rest assured that should we need work done around our new home, we will be calling Cesar and Ozzie back again. Good luck to you Cesar and Ozzie. You deserve all the best!

Good communication. Polite. Professional. On time (early, actually). Good install. The only reason I'm giving a 4 star instead of a 5 star is b/c he changed the price after the project was complete. I was quoted and invoiced $250 for 5 fan installs. He broke the glass dome on one, so he had to go out and get another one (the fan itself is $60). At the end of the job, he asked for $300 and said it's b/c the type of light it has is harder to install than some fans. I should've sent him photos of the fan beforehand, but didn't think it made much difference. But, when he saw the fans prior to starting the job, he never said that they were more complex and it would actually cost $300. It wasn't until after the job was completed. I'm pretty sure he was just trying to cover the expense of having to replace the fan he broke. I highly doubt he would've attempted to charge $300 at the end of the job if everything had gone smoothly. It's fine he broke the fan...accidents happen. But, that is not something I should be liable for. Yes, he did go purchase the new fan w/ his own money, but I feel like he indirectly charged us more for the labor to cover the cost of the fan. I didn't really realize this at the time, so I went ahead and paid him the $300. And he did give me the option of still paying the $250, but I didn't want to come off like a jerk or something if I didn't pay him $300. So, yes at least he gave me the option, but when in that situation, one feels obligated and compelled to pay the higher amount. I don't think he was intentionally trying to rip me off or anything, especially since he gave me the option to still pay $250 as originally agreed upon, but I think in the moment, he just wanted to recoup his costs and didn't think as much about how it would be perceived. But, aside from that, everything was great and he did good work. I have no complaints otherwise. I'd use his services again as long as something like that didn't happen again...lol.

I had a deck built and storm door installed. They're in the process of redoing my backyard fence and will be installing a new patio cover. The guys are knowledgeable and take pride in their work. I'll call them again to do other jobs for me.

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.
