I had the pleasure in meeting with Adam to hang two oversized décor pieces. The initial contact in regard to the service performed was handled very professionally. Adam presented an offer and also disclosed that he was insured for unexpected liabilities which was very important to me due to previous experiences. Adam was EXTREMELY knowledgeable about how a wall art piece should be displayed based on eye level and balance. He did not push his ideas on where to hang my décor pieces but simply made suggestions based on his professional background. I have Adam free reign and the job turned out beautifully! I will be using this company in the near future and I would recommend to anyone looking for handyman services to contact Perfect Frames. Pictures attached for reference.

Dale is the perfect handyman. He strives to be accurate, precise, can walk in the door and do a variety of jobs. I needed shelving and didn't know how to buy it. He went shopping with me. He helped me up pictures and was good with me changing my mind. He is easy, personable, accurate, and works fast. You need to know Dale.

I needed to hire a painter for my place of business which is a hair salon. I hired Jose and he was just fantastic! His communication was very thorough and he was on time and he did a wonderful job. I actually needed him to repaint the room from a prior painter who did a very sloppy job. Jose made my room look bright and beautiful and on top of it he cleaned everything so thoroughly. He wanted to leave my room spotless and I could tell he took a lot of pride in his services. I was very impressed with his work and I have already hired him to do a plumbing job next in my salon. He is the nicest guy you want to work with and he has an excellent work ethic. He is very upfront and honest he will tell you what he can or cannot do and his prices are very fair. Jose is going to be my go to guy for any handyman work I need in my salon going forward. I highly recommend him for whatever your handyman needs maybe. This man is a true professional!

I had just bought a house, and was in need of a handyman after the original one fell through. It was truly a blessing that he did, because I was lucky enough to find Gary! He responded to my request immediately, was available quickly and let me say he is prompt! From the word go, Gary and Justin were off, and any challenge that presented itself, they pushed through and we're done early to boot. They did several repairs (thanks to a previous owner who tried to do things himself), including garage door bracket/ceiling repair, replacing glass in two metal windows (way more labor intensive than I thought), rerouting pvc pipe off a large water heater to an exterior wall and completely removing/installing an attic door. When the attic door we just bought was broken, he rushed out and got a new one and was back in a flash. They were fast, thorough and extremely clean. They even swept the garage when they were done. Before they left, Gary was happy to answer any questions I had about things that needed fixing, and even gave me some tips on things I could fix myself. I will definitely be calling them again. They are very reasonable too. I have found the perfect handyman!

Carlos and team did an excellent job on my tasks, and my wife readily approved of their work (we all know that's what really matters). They were very responsive, arrived on time, and did quick work. They did so well, I immediately grabbed them for a few other handyman jobs I had on my queue.

I hired Latimer Handyman to caulk the shower in our master bath. Robert did an outstanding job. The shower looks brand new again! He arrived on time, was quick yet thorough, and left the work area clean and neat. I would hire him again for future projects.

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.

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.
