I would highly recommend CRDR HANDYMAN. We had a billards table moved from one location to another and we couldn't have been more pleased with the set up, time it took to complete the job, professionalism and attention to detail.

He drove more than 1 hour to install my elliptical, and he did an amazing job. Truly a handyman - someone you can trust to do the job right when he said he will do it.

Hired Cody to paint 3 rooms (closet, 2 bedrooms). The ease to hire them was straightforward. Even helped with calculating amount of paint I should buy. Called day before to confirm appointment and showed up on time. Very professional and did a great job. What's even better is that they also do handyman jobs. Considering I'm new to Houston, it's great to find a trustworthy handyman that I can call upon.

Jeff was very polite and provided excellent and patience service. He removed and installed a game room ceiling fan and fixed faulty wiring to a bedroom ceiling fan. I would without hesitation use and refer him for all handyman type work.

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.

Eduard did an outstanding job installing dimmer switches in our home. He was knowledgable, courteous, and thorough. Eduard even asked for a vacuum to clean up from the drilling work. I would most definitely hire Eduard again for any electrical or home improvement needs we have.

This is my first experience with Thumbtack and I'm very satisfied with the service that HDs Handyman Services has provided. David answered my request within an hour and the very same day came by and wrote an estimate for the crown molding work. 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.

Darren actually came on Saturday because I had a water leak and he explained the importance of getting to it quickly. He came and looked at the scope of work and said he would be back on Sunday morning. This morning he arrived on time and completed the project. Removed the damaged areas and did the repairs. I would recommend Darren as a handyman and will use him on future projects.

I called Handy Dude Service to install a new kitchen sink, disposal, and dishwasher to replace my existing ones. Not only did they show up within 24 hours' notice, the end result was exactly what we needed! During their work, they went the extra mile to make sure our concerns were met, and walked us through the installation once it was complete. I was so impressed, in fact, that before they left, I presented them a list of other projects I have in mind for the future. Definitely call Handy Dude Service. A very cordial, professional, and versatile team.

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.

I used Xpress Handyman for several small jobs around the house - adjusting the position of a dining room light, hanging a large mirror and placing curtain rods. They were on time, worked efficiently, and cleaned up completely. The work was high quality as well. I will use them again and have recommended them to others.

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.
