Dan came to mount a tv over my fireplace. He was on time (even early which was better for me!) and immediately got to work. After mounting my tv perfectly he even offered to help hang decor on my walls and helped me move furniture in my house without even charging any extra than what he originally quoted me just for the mounting. He is a GREAT handyman and the nicest guy. I nightly recommend you use him! Plus he works for an unbeatable price. I took his axes and plan on using him in the future!

Great work at a fair price and he’s a solid guy. Josh gave me a price that he stuck to, showed up when he said he would be there and did quality work. Highly recommended for any handyman work.

Michelle and John R.
Verified review

Far surpassed my expectations. He arrived on time and was very easy to work with and had reasonable prices. His work was very high quality. He has a long list of services that he can do. However, he was also very upfront if there was something that would be better to get a specialized professional instead of a handyman (himself) to do. He also came to my rescue with the AC repairment who were also working while he was there. They had to cut a hole in my ceiling and he gave me a second opinion, measuring the space to confirm there was no other way. He then offered for them to use his (superior) tools and even helped them cut the hole. As brand new homeowners with a list of things to get done, we're already starting on the next list of things for him to come out and help with. We're thrilled with his work and will use him again and strongly recommend him.

Awesome awesome awesome professional. Very skilled, polite and honest. He was very patient resolving and repairing the mess the other tech caused along with the original issue. He even ended coming back to fix more surprise issues and didn’t charge me for the leak. Hire this man. You won’t be disappointed

He was able to meet my immediate schedule request and perform various tasks such as basic plumbing and woodwork that reduced additional resources. Although a small repair, he was thorough in addressing my problem concerns and communicated his two phase approach and two day schedule but did not change his cost estimate.

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.

If you are looking for a patient, honest, hard-working and just an all-around reputable handyman, don't look any further. I had the pleasure of working with Joel today. He installed my dishwasher and over-the-range microwave to complete my updated kitchen appliances. If I could give him 10 stars I would. His quality of work and attention to detail is second to none. As he was working on those appliances, I was already looking around the house to see what else I could have him work on in the future. Trustworthy, reliable, reasonably priced and honest. I would recommend him to anyone. You will not be disappointed.

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.
