I requested a service on Thumbtack since I am new to the area and don't have many contacts. Emilio was the first person to respond. He was completely professional, prompt and reliable. He made immediate contact with me and followed up throughout the quote and job process. The job was performed as promised. He provided me with detailed photos throughout the job since I was not able to be at the location at the time of service. Emilio was affordable, experienced in his field and more than anything.... Reliable. Should I need further painting services, Emilio is he first person I would contact. Laura K

Orlando replied to me right away he was very professional and courteous. I had part of the gutter hanging from the storm so he realized it was urgent. He came out the next day and by the time I got home he had put it back on. He even went to store to get more supplies and cleaned up before after himself. . The value was great and I appreciated how he handled everything and how he communicated with me. I’ve been trying to find a reliable handyman for awhile now so felt great this worked out!

My wife and I hired Daniel to paint multiple rooms in our new home (ceiling, doors, walls, etc.). We could not have hoped for a better experience. Daniel's pricing was very reasonable. He was fast and neat. He was helpful to us as first time home buyers and just a great guy in general. We already plan to have him come back and paint some other areas of our house. If you want top notch, fast, affordable, friendly service go with DAC Enterprises.

My Wife and I moved into our new home and was looking for a handyman. We hired Sean to stain our fence and to build shelves on our garage. Sean and his assistant were on time and completed the jobs to our satisfaction. We extended the list of things that we wanted Sean and his assistant to do. Everything was done in a professional manner. I hired Sean again 4 months later to assemble and level a storage shed. Sean delivered again, we were very satisfied with the finished product of all the projects that we hired him to do. Sean was on time and gave us a fair price quote for all of the task that he was scheduled to do. We would defiantly hire Sean again for any other handyman projects that we have in the future.

I needed some fiber cement panels replaced on the side of my house. P&D Mendoza Construction was able to quickly come out and provide an affordable estimate. David and his team came out the next day and got the job done with care and professionalism. Check them out for your next siding job...or any of the other services they provide.

Eric was Professional, Fast and Affordable!! I just purchased a home build in 1968, needless to say the electrical was old. The previous owner did their own electrical work that was all messed up. So, I had A LOT of things that needed to be fixed. Eric was able to get everything done in a couple days. I was extremely impressed!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a property management company do?

Property management companies manage the rental of residential homes, apartments, condos, commercial spaces and retail spaces. Property managers can oversee just a single unit or many properties, whether those sites are inhabited full-time or are vacation rentals. A property management company helps a property owner or landlord find tenants; collects rent; takes care of accounting, property maintenance and repairs; handles on-site management; and manages vacation rental check-in and checkout tasks. Although many property owners or landlords successfully manage their own rental real estate, a property management company can help you handle tenant issues and maintenance problems, especially if you are not located in the same city or state. Most property management companies deal with tenants directly, and their tasks include:

  • Marketing the rental property
  • Collecting rent
  • Handling repair problems
  • Responding to tenant complaints
  • Evicting tenants  

A property management company may be a good choice for property owners who have several investment properties, live far away from the rental property, or don’t have time for hands-on management.

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.

Why is property management important?

A property management company can be a landlord’s greatest asset. As a neutral third party, the property manager handles the day-to-day operations of a real estate investment, from a single vacation home to a large apartment building or several rental properties. A property management company can be especially helpful to landlords who own several units and can’t manage each of them individually, or those who live too far from their investment properties to meet with renters and oversee maintenance. Property management is particularly important if your rentals are part of an affordable housing program. To receive financial assistance from the government, the landlord must comply with a complicated set of rules; property management companies should have both experience and expertise in complying with the rules specific to each housing program.

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.
