The presentation was fantastic. I had my back yard landscaped as it is a new home, and did not have anything but grass. I am enjoying my back yard tremendously. The deck that was added was a nightmare. We went through several carpenters, finally got a good carpenter. I am really happy now with my back yard and the deck.

Bought a new metal bed frame that was great but a bit too high. Not your normal handyman project. Chris from VNC got in touch with me and after I described the project he assured me that he would complete the job and make sure the cuts would be precise and smooth. Met Chris and he used a precise cutting tool and delivered on his promise. New metal bed frame is now the perfect height and looks great! Thanks Chris!

This was my first time using a company from Thumbtack. Ace Handyman Services was quick to respond to my request. The plumber knew his stuff regarding my water heater and was upfront about pricing. The company showed up right on time as request and worked with my schedule. I would definitely recommend others to use this company!

After the realtor told us that a spotless house would be critical for the improving our odds for a quick sale of our home, we decided to hire a cleaning service. Living in Cibolo, Tx, I wasn't sure about who did good work. Long ago, I had good experiences with two different cleaning ladies and was charged about $30 an hour for a reasonable cleaning job. But neither of these ladies were available. So I looked at reviews on Thumntack and tried to schedule with one but could not work out a time that worked. Frustrated, I tried the next one on the list, HandySpurs. They returned my call immediately and scheduled for the next day! When Luis and his team arrived, (three altogether), they were right on time. They brought their own supplies and worked for three hours straight. Our house was a two story 4 bedroom with three bathrooms. When they were finished, our house was amazingly clean! They cleaned better than any service I had ever had. Then I was stunned when he wanted to charge me $70! Needless to say, I became a regular customer and loved that I could always schedule appointments by text anytime. I could quickly reschedule a cleaning by text if we had a sudden showing and that flexibility was a pleasure. Well, we sold our house quickly but we kept using HandySpurs. The day after the movers came, Luis and his team came out and cleaned the house so well that all I had to do for the new owners was clean the fridge and oven. All else, walls, windows, base boards, vents, light fixtures, all floors, everything ! was so clean it sparkled. I told Luis that when I got situated in our new home in Kansas I would write about his good work. I'm keeping my promise. I'm not one to write reviews but I sure appreciate reading others so I thought I should contribute both to praise HandySpurs as well as assist future potential consumers. Honestly, I don't know how he makes a profit. He does not overcharge but more than that- he and his team are simply the most hard working cleaning service I have ever used. I hope my glowing but truthful review doesn't cause them too have too many new referrals! Ha! I actually worry about the working TOO hard to please their customers! Hopefully, they will settle down to a group of customers who are happy to pay for excellent work and who appreciate their flexibility, professionalism, as well as friendliness. We gave them a big tip for their final cleaning the day we left but it still wasn't enough. They were simply wonderful.

He was able to come over right away which was a huge help. Did a great job of removing some sheetrock behind a dishwasher that had been damaged by a leak and put in new sheetrock. The original electrical socket was rusted as it was just laying on the floor. He bought and installed a new electrical box and installed it in the wall. He bought all supplies, got the job done quickly, and even patched some sheet rock under the sick which I had not originally requested. All was done professionally for a very reasonable price.

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!

November 30, 2011 Chris is a great guy and definitely a very handyman, i have had several people fix things and have never been 100% satisfied. With Chris he has always done a fantastic job, i am so grateful to have found a wonderful handyman. We will use him as long as we have things to be worked on, he has a great and sweet personality always in a good mood and i trust him to leave him in my home alone if i have to go run errands. I highly recommend him, even my husband is so grateful for him (no more honey do lists for him)!

Daniel repaired baseboards and window sill that were damaged by my dog who used it as a chew toy. Daniel was very friendly, on-time and knowledgeable. He repaired everything to almost like it was before and I'm extremely picky. We would without hesitation hire him again. Also, the price was right! We've used Handyman Helpers and their price would have been double what Daniel charged.

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.

Great guy who was here within an hour of the job posting, absolutely unheard of. The desk he assembled was no piece of cake and let me tell you he didn't complain once, he stayed until the job was done. LoL He was more like friend doing us a favor, than a stiff collared worker aggravated worker types I've dealt with with say RTG. I trusted him with our project and now I've gotta say he set the bar pretty high if I were to ever "post another job" or request help! Thank you so much Thumbtack and RG Bear!

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.
