CRDR removed a very large treadmill from my home. Wilson and his team were very professional and took great care when moving the item in order not to damage any walls or stairs. I would definitely recommended CRDR Handyman Services.

Juan arrived on time and completed the job (treadmill assembly) very professionally and in much less time than originally expected. He was kind and courteous and was able to fix a few other things around the house during the same visit for a small extra charge. I would highly recommend him to others looking for handyman services.

Geovanny was extremely quick to come out & give me a quote. He was able to squeeze me in between jobs (by having his colleague Pedro come out) & did a great job. I have 18 month old twins so needed someone to patch/paint holes in our townhome before we move out, & needed them to work around their nap schedule. Things went seamlessly & it looks like we never hung a thing! Other things that he did: fixed a big hole where I ran our recycle bin into the wall & changed out the front door handle (lever had fallen off). Definitely recommend Geovanny & his team for any handyman/paint work that you have! We’ll be using him to do some work at our new house too.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, prompt, excellent work, great price. I had him install an exterior ceiling fan but he can do lots of other handyman jobs (plumbing, basic electrical, etc.). I would use him again.

On April 1st, he installed crown molding in two bedrooms and the job is just perfect. THANK YOU David and Thumbtack!!!

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 was looking for a handyman to help me move a 1 BR apt on Jul 28, 2018. Franklin responded to my request with his quote. Then, I sent him pics of the furniture to moved, and we talked over telephone. On the move day, even though the move was supposed to start at 9 am, he was up early - at 7 am - and promptly responded to my call from the U-Haul as they wanted to know who will be helping me move. He responded promptly and shortly thereafter arrived on time at my apartment to help with the move. During the move, brought all his tools, was thorough in packing the delicate stuff (TV, dining table) and moved things cautiously yet efficiently. Throughout the move, our interactions were pleasant and very friendly. Moving is always a stressful experience but I was glad to have Franklin by my side. I throughly recommend him and would definitely hire him again.

We recently moved into our new house, and we hired Rudy to install a chandelier and an island light fixture. Rudy was able to come out within an hour of contacting him, and was prompt. He was very accommodating, great at communicating, and highly efficient. I will be contacting him in the near further for all of our home decor and furniture needs. I would highly recommend Rudy as your go to handyman! Thank you Rudy!

My experience with Reza was the best experience I have ever had with any contractor! When I hired Reza we were in the process of preparing our house to sell. We had a long list of items that needed to be done, and were on a tight timeframe to hit our planned listing date. Not only did Reza complete everything on the list and exceed my expectations in terms of quality, communication and cleanliness, but he also identified and resolved several issues with our house that we hadn't previously discussed. Even though he went above and beyond the scope of our agreement, he still honored the original quote without hesitation and completed all of the tasks on time. The best part of working with Reza is how genuine and trustworthy he is. He took a genuine interest in ensuring our house was ready to sell and took ownership of the work because he cares about his customers. I'm disappointed that I'm moving out of the area because I finally found a contractor I can trust to do work that meets and exceeds my standards. If I ever own property in this area again, I will definitely hire Reza for all of my handyman and painting needs!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

    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.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
