We had a fantastic experience with Greg. He came and immediately got to task installing a bike rack, shower rods, hanging curtains and correcting the work of a previous handyman. He was a delight the entire time and everything looks great. Would definitely use him again and recommend to others.

I was looking for a handyman to help me move a 1 BR apt on Jul 28, 2018. Brady responded to my request with his quote. Then, I sent him pics of the furniture to moved, and a week before the move day, we talked over telephone. At that time, given his amazing reviews, he was first choice as a handyman to help me move. As the move day drew closer, for a couple of days, Brady stopped responding. This seemed to be strange as he had been very fast in responding to my text messages beforehand. So, I thought he was no longer interested and started looking for someone else. Then, a day before the move, he responded that he had been out of town. Given his amazing past reviews, as I needed a second handyman to help me move, I hired him as well. On the move day, he arrived on time and moved things cautiously yet efficiently. Regrettably, in our conversation, while he had indicated he had a moving Dolley and moving blankets, on the move day, he did not bring them. All the same, throughout the move, our interactions were pleasant and very friendly. Overall, I appreciated his work ethic and punctuality. Had Brady not have stopped responding to the texts while traveling and brought the moving Dolley and moving blankets, I would have totally given him 5 stars. All the same, moving is always a stressful experience but I was glad to have Brady by my side.

Adan was timely & did a fantastic job. He is trustworthy, hard working & above all, knows exactly what he is doing. To top it off, he's extremely communicative & polite. I would refer him and would definitely call on him again. He did an excellent job concealing my cords/wires by going behind the wall and I was very pleased. Highly recommend.

Sammy with HD handyman and construction has been doing work at my 4-Plex since the past month-and-a-half. I have gave him three Apartments to remodel he has completed two of them so far and half way through the last one. He has done sheetrock, flooring, Plumbing, kitchen cabinets, installed tubs and few other things. He did an excellent job and I was very impressed with the quality of his work and attention to details. He also helped me with Section 8 inspection and needless to say it passed in first attempt. Sammy is a good honest working man. He does what he says. Thank you Sammy for all the work and all the help that you have given me.

I hired this professional for T.V. Mount Services. From the beginning, this company had a speedy response from the time I requested a quote. They were very accommodating, flexible and conscientious of my time. I informed them that I had ordered the wall mount and was waiting for a email from the store saying my order was ready for pick up. After hearing this and also hearing the small time frame I was able to fit installation into my schedule, he offered to purchase a wall mount that was compatible with my T.V. , and that was in my price range on his way to my installation appointment. Given that the request I made on this site for an install said I had already had my equipment, he still was nice and courteous, although he had other jobs/appointments lined up. Upon his arrival he was ready to begin but, it took me a little while to decide where I wanted it mounted, because I rearrange with the seasons, but wanted a spot where I wouldn't have to move the TV. He was patient while I came to a decision. When he finally was able to begin, he informed me of what he was going to do , before he did it, in case I had another preference. He works quickly and efficiently. When the installation was complete, I was satisfied and pleased with the job. Great customer service from the company and I WILL hire them for my next handyman job.

Al is quite possibly the best handyman I've ever encountered. Polite, on-time, reasonably-priced and very skilled at his job, I have nothing but praise for his work. I wholeheartedly recommend him based on the work he has done for me. This included laying turf, planting shrubs, putting down dirt, burying cables under my pathway, and installing sports equipment in my garage. Simply put, if you choose Al, then you can do no better.

We had a fantastic experience with Phillip Edward Construction, and specifically with Luis. We needed to have a closet built in our house in order for one of the rooms to count as a bedroom when we listed our house for sale. The project needed to be done quickly and done well. From our first meeting, Luis was the utmost level of professional. Throughout the project he kept us updated on the progress as well as the timeline. He was very flexible as we had a lot going on leading up to our listing. The finished project far exceeded our expectations and was very reasonable price-wise. We will be calling Luis in the future for our handyman needs!

I hired Mr. Nice Guy to remove 2 gates and posts and install them at another location. In setting up the appointment I had to reschedule several times. Mr. Nice Guy was very accommodating and did an excellent job for me at both locations. I will hire him again to assist with handyman services at my new home.

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.
