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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

Russ didn’t actually do any work for me only because we found the problem before I hired him. But we spoke on the phone about the issue I was having and he was extremely forthcoming and helpful. I will be calling Russ next time I need a handyman.

Our job consisted of two floor-to-ceiling oak built-in cabinets with doors and drawers topped with bookshelves, one 16' and the other 8' in length, in our living area; and a 10' painted built in bookshelf in our bedroom. All were nicely finished and trimmed with crown moldings. The owner, Bob Zirpoli. did the room measurements and incorporated our design ideas into the finished product. He and his helper delivered and expertly installed the cabinetry in a very timely manner and cleaned up thoroughly before leaving our home. His price was fair and he did an excellent job from start to finish. We highly recommend Supreme Cabinets and More to anyone in need of quality custom cabinetry.

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.
