Texan Handyman Service did a few touch up jobs for me in my bathroom. I asked him to replace some of the hardware in the tub, install a new towel bar and also tile the floor which was previously stick down tile. He messaged me via text to confirm the tile of my choice, and also let me know when there was an issue and of price changes that occurred accordingly. We found some unexpected damage (as always happens) and he was able to handle that as well and add it into the price at the end (he okay-ed the additional cost with me). Offered an option to pay with credit card which I really liked. Afterwards I found an issue and he was responsive to texts to confirm it probably wasn't anything to do with the work he did, and offered to come out and also resolve if he happened to be in the area the following week. I will probably see if it's something I can fix myself and if not will follow him up on his offer, but I think I would definitely reach out again if I had a whole series of small projects I once again needed completing.

Love Powell's Lawn and Handyman service, very fast response time and was super reasonable. Charged me only $45 to remove a downed tree, when others wanted $100 or more! Will be utilizing him for more jobs in the future, for sure!

Angel was awesome! He gave fair prices, performed the work as soon as he could, gave honest feedback (won't try to get you to do something you don't need) and was a super hard worker! On top of that he is a VERY nice guy. I have read horror stories, so thankful our first time using a handyman was with Angel. We will absolutely be using him for our future needs!!

Tim is just terrific. I hired him to put together a playset and he got the job done for us before Christmas so the kiddos could play on Santa's early delivery! I would absolutely hire him again for any handyman task. So professional and polite.

Jon was so great to work with. He was extremely professional, fair and responded very fast. His communication was awesome, which I really appreciate. We asked him to help us organize our garage, and he went above and beyond. Everything is put up neatly, and the tools are organized by type and brand. He even blew the garage out and drive way, without being asked. I'm really looking forward working with him on additional projects in the future, we found our new handyman!

Juan with One Stop Services is nothing short of EXCELLENT. He showed up to the job site prepared and with a positive attitude. When things got dicey due to my poor planning he remained calm and was able to effectively trouble shoot solutions. Juan is very patient, able to adapt/adjust to changing circumstances and will stay until the job is done. Juan was very flexible with my changing scope of work and helped me out with additional small jobs while on site. Juan was very honest and fair with both estimating and invoicing. I will certainly use Juan for any future carpentry/handyman need as well as recommend him to my friends and family.

Manuel, Handyman Walls, and his crew did an excellent job on this project which consisted of removing popcorn ceiling, retexturing and patching up the ceiling and walls. When you hire Manuel, you get someone that is diverse and has the ability to do things that are beyond the typical paint job. He was able to come up with solutions for some issues I wanted to address. He was able to take out an old return air filter vent of an unusual size and replace it with a new one of a normal size that required a little structural change. He finished out the tile in a bathroom and redid the thresholds. Installed some new fans as well. All of this was done in a timely manner. Manuel is flexible, competent, has a good eye for detail, and is passionate about delivering a fine quality of work.

Okay so the job I asked for was admittedly simplified, but when Bill and Tony showed up they immediately sized up the job and began work immediately. They removed the existing cabinets and placed them in my garage for later use. Then they installed the new light fixtures, patched and painted the wall and installed the new cabinets. I was impressed at this point, but when the Master Electrician came to inspect the electrical work, I was amazed! My wife is so happy with the work that I have been given permission to hire Fixed again to install the old cabinets in my garage! Stay tuned, guys! And great touch with the door mat and shoe covers! That was the icing on the cake for my wife! Thank again!

Jim removed a load bearing wall between the kitchen and living room leaving a load bearing post, opening up the house. He was very prompt and professional. He finished on schedule and cleaned up everything before he left. The end result was exactly what I expected from a professional handyman.

Exterior painting and wood work Bud just finished the exterior of our house – painting and wood work. We are extremely pleased with Bud and his assistant. They were on time and efficient! Throughout the entire process, Bud was attentive, professional and made sure each of our concerns were addressed. His assistant was great too! They treated my entire property with great care. There were no 'shortcuts' taken. I would recommend Bud to anyone looking for a terrific handyman company!

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.
