How much does a handyman charge?

The national average fixed rate for handyman jobs ranges from $120-$175. 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.

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 fees.

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.

What do handymen charge per hour?

On average, you can expect to pay a handy person around $55 per hour. However, this cost can range between $35 and $80 per hour, depending on a number of factors. For instance, a handyman may charge a minimum fee of $50-$100 for small jobs that won’t take much of their time. The complexity of the job will affect the price as well. Your final price will also depend upon where you live, as certain regions have higher labor rates than others.

Does a handyman need to enter my home?

In many cases, a handyman will not need to enter your home for outdoor repairs, but they’ll likely need to enter your home for indoor repairs. With the pandemic’s associated safety guidelines, it’s important that this only occurs for absolutely essential projects. Avoid any physical contact with the handyman if this is the case. Sanitize surfaces, and conduct payment through a digital platform like PayPal or Venmo. Be sure to contact your handyman and develop a plan before the job commences.

Is it worth it to hire a handyman?

It’s worth it to hire a handyman in many cases. For example, you should hire a handyman when the project’s size and scope make it challenging to complete by yourself. These projects may include major home remodels or additions, foundation work or electrical/plumbing/HVAC-related tasks. However, make sure the handyman has the proper credentials or license to perform the necessary work.

You might also want to hire a handyman if a contractor’s price is too high. Handymen often charge less than general contractors, but contractors typically have the required license to perform certain tasks.

And, lastly, think about the complexity of the job and the cost of future repairs. It’s worth it to hire a handyman when the project is complex. Doing something incorrectly can wind up costing more than hiring the pro in the first place.

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.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a handyman during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Setting up a safe consultation or appointment with a handyman during the COVID-19 pandemic starts with comparing local professionals online. Message or call the handyman to ask about performing a consultation over the phone or, better yet, a video call. This will allow the handyman to assess the problem without increasing the risk of transmission by visiting your home. If the service is essential and the handyman needs to enter your home, you’ll need to take stringent safety measures for the visit. Discuss temporary fixes if possible, and come up with a plan for safety and digital payment.

Can I use digital payments to pay for handyman services?

Many handymen accept digital payments for work done repairing homes. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the urgent need for social distancing, this trend is likely going to increase. Handymen often accept payment through popular platforms like Paypal, Google Pay, Zelle, Venmo, Square Cash and more. 

Consult with the handyman before you begin work to ensure you’ll be able to conduct the transaction safely and in compliance with official guidelines.

How can I find out if a handyman is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Depending on the service needed, a handyman may be considered essential during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can check by visiting your city or state’s government website. In addition, CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage offers national guidelines for determining essential services. Their page delineates 16 essential infrastructure sectors that can continue to operate during the pandemic. But note that not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Do handymen offer remote or virtual services?

Because a handyman needs to be physically present to perform work, they have not traditionally offered remote or virtual services. However, if you come across handyman profiles that state they offer remote services, message the handymen to see what those services include.

Confer with your handyman to see if consulting over video calls is possible. The professional may be able to walk you through performing basic plumbing, electrical, HVAC and other types of repairs around the house. Compare the handymen in your area side-by-side online, and ask whether they’re willing to help remotely.

The appointment was set 3-4 days in advance and the handyman came around 1.30pm instead of 9am. Installed screen door, smart lock and a latch. Couldn't get the smart switch working. Had to hire another handyman to complete the job.

Most of us know how tough it is to find a great handyman. Some are nice but not dependable. Some charge fair prices but are not professional or personable. Well, your search is over. Call Jesus. The man is professional, friendly, efficient, punctual, charges fair prices, and does great work. A++

He saved me loads and knew what he was doing; one handyman came out prior and didn’t fully look at the issue, but Steve did. He found the issue and was able to fix the sliding door I had instead of looking into replacing, and it works like new :) I will definitely continue using him for my house and work

I contacted Ryan as one of several contractors to bid on a job to replace some rotting columns from my front porch. He and his team were very responsive and thorough in the bidding process. I am very particular about leaving the workplace clean and tidy and they did. The work was done great and they cleaned up afterwards really well. I'd highly recommend HandyMan and Beyond.

I truly I wish I can give 6th star to Al(Mustafa). Al was punctual, professional and dedicated for the job I hired it. He completed the project on time, patiently answered questions during the project installation and made sure the place is clean once the work is done. I will be hiring him for all my future projects. Its very tough to find dedicated handyman like Mustafa. Thanks Al for doing a great job.

While he was a nice guy, his services fell short on a variety of ways. 1. He was 45 minutes late 2. I emailed him the day before to show him what work we needed done and he never responded. We did had a lot of tricky work that we had a commercial handyman service do the week prior and I wanted to make sure he could do it. When I contacted him in the morning to ask if he was still coming he said all good. When he showed up he said he couldn’t do any of it but install a chandelier. So we agreed to that but I wondered why he wasted our time and didn’t tell me before he came that he couldn’t do it. 3. He took 2.5hours to install a chandelier which my husband(not a handyman) can do in 45 minutes. 4. The chandelier was installed improperly because it keeps tripping the Braker and now we have to hire someone else to come and install in correctly. So no I wouldn’t recommend him.

I would like to thank Thierry’s Handyman Service for all that they did and going above and beyond with fixing my pipes in both bathrooms and was only coming to check for one. He also fixed my towel rack as well. Your hospitality was amazing. I will use this company again. The customer service and professionalism was amazing. I would use this company again and would refer people to this company. You will not be disappointed. Keep up the good work. You two rock together😊 LaTasha Pennie

I hired Mike to replace a garbage disposal unit at one of my rental properties, and not only am I pleased with the work provided, but I am extremely impressed with his professionalism and level of communication with me and my tenant. His price was fair and reasonable for the work. And, let's be honest, it can be tough to find a reliable handyman that follows through. Mike follows through. I have Mike at the top of my short list now for future jobs and would highly recommend him to others. You won't be disappointed.

I contracted Mike to remove and replace an attic door. I was immediately impressed with his responsiveness. One thing I really dislike is when someone says they’ll be by at a certain time and then the time comes and goes with no contact. Mike is not like that. We agreed on a time for him to come out, and when it was getting close to that time, he sent me a message with an ETA, and made it to my house at the time originally agreed on. Not only was he knowledgeable, and reasonably priced, he went above and beyond. My attic door was broken and it looked like it would fall at any moment. I mentioned that the room it’s in, belongs to my elderly grandmother and we were afraid it was going to fall on her. Before he left , he told me he wanted to secure it so it would be safe. I didn’t expect that, but again I was super impressed! He explained what I needed to buy, in regards to a replacement and other materials, and we agreed on him coming by the following day to do the job. He did, and let me say, quality work! I have found my handyman! I will only contact him from now on.
