I had Blast build a custom accent wall piece for our Master bedroom. I had the pattern drawn out in Autocad with dimensions and angles to help aid the work being done. Blast did a great job turning my design on paper, to a work of art on our wall. My wife and I were very happy with his work. I would use his services again on my next project.

Geovanny is an absolute pro. We needed to get our plumbing installed and hook up our kitchen sink and disposal in a bit of a hurry. He made sure to get to us the same day we contacted him. He did an excellent job and was very informative and personable as he did the work. We would definitely hire him again for plumbing or any other general contract jobs for our house.

'Little Shepherd's Services' Arturo Ibarra Tree Service is just a good, honest Service that does what he says and knows what he is talking about. That’s the Service you want when a service can speak what you want when you are thinking about what you want. I searched 3 Tree Services to do the job I wanted and one wanted $400.00 to embark 2 Trees. The other $375.00 and I saw the work they were doing in Katy but the bark of the Palm tree they were skinning did not have that deep rich gold brown color. Then I gave Arturo Ibarra a call and explained to him what I wanted done to my two Mexico Fan Palm Trees and he actually started explaining to me what I wanted and he was in my head and on the money. He even educated me about how to leave the top of the tree because of different seasons. He was the man AND his prices was very reasonable that they beat all the other previous estimates and delivered a job well done. Ok, say no more... LITTLE SHEPHERD’S SERVICES. Give them a call. Also, check out the before & After of my Trees! Priceless!!!

Richard exceeded our expectations. He truly went above and beyond to ensure excellent quality services. We are first time home buyers and purchased a fixer upper. Richard painted, completely reconstructed one of our cabinets in the kitchen, and did some plumbing work for us. He was very pleasant to speak with and patient when answering questions. His price is unreal for what you actually get!

Great cleaning service! I called Eric on a Tuesday evening and he was out to clean our home the next morning. I was very fond of hiring veterans to clean our home! He is prompt and works diligently from start to finish. I was extremely impressed with his work; he exceeded all of my expectations. Eric is also dedicated to getting things the exact way you want them. I unfortunately wasn’t at home the first time he came by and I prefer the home to smell sweet/fruity which I forgot to tell him before and mentioned after he left. He came all the way back out to my home to re-steam the floors with the scent I preferred. I was able to wipe crevices that hadn’t been touched in years and they were free of dust. The kitchen looked spotless as well as the rest of the home. Definitely will be using Warehorse Maintenance Solutions to clean my home again!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

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.

Why is property management important?

A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.

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.
