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!

Jose built multiple pieces of furniture, hung curtains and swapped out light fixtures for us. He was punctual and highly efficient. A knob on my sister's dresser broke when he was putting it together and he went out of his way to replace the knob even after we insisted that it wasn't necessary. We will definitely be calling on Jose for all of our future handyman needs.

My husband and I were introduced to Ruben's Handyman Service through our NextDoor Neighbor forum. On a ridiculously hot and humid summer day, Ruben got a Texas style workout, installing wood flooring in a large closet in our home. This Army veteran receives a 5-star rating for his service to our country and for his skillful workmanship! Nice job, Ruben!

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.

I was looking for a handyman to help me in my move, when I met Peter. He blew me away from the very beginning. He came over to look at my furniture and we went over what the job would entail. My son has a trampoline that I was very worried about moving. Peter talked me about the research he had done on trampoline building, and he did an amazing job of putting it together. He was incredibly punctual and detail oriented and I will never move again without calling Peter first!

Bobby was great! I 100% trusted him at my home when I wasn't there, my dog loved him too! He got the work done, didn't leave a mess, was kind, affordable and prompt. As a realtor, a good handyman is hard to come by and I would totally refer him to my clients and use him again!

Jose did a cement repair job for us and we asked him to look at our kitchen ceiling while here. He quoted a price and even though it was a harder job then any of us thought it would be he worked hard to get it fixed. It looks so much better! We would use Jose again for any of our home needs and repairs. I highly recommend Jose and his work.

I hired Derby to take down 22 feet of 6-foot-tall fence and put up 22 feet of 6-foot-tall fence that included a gate. He provided a quote that was in line with the other estimates and was able to come out and do the job the next day. He was easy to talk to, answered my questions (I had quite a few), and did the work as promised. He's a good guy - very personable. We even talked after about some other work that I may have him do later (he has a background in landscaping and has other handyman type skills).

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.

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.
