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.

This guy knows what he is doing. He was in and out super fast, replaced my garbage disposal with a completely different type no problem. He even hardwired the electric that was supposed to plug in. This guy is the real deal. I plan on contacting him first for any future handyman needs. He was super pleasant to work with. Thank you thank you thank you! I would have given him 10 stars if I could!

Exterior painting and wood work Bud just finished the exterior of our house – painting and wood work. We are extremely pleased with Bud and his assistant. They were on time and efficient! Throughout the entire process, Bud was attentive, professional and made sure each of our concerns were addressed. His assistant was great too! They treated my entire property with great care. There were no 'shortcuts' taken. I would recommend Bud to anyone looking for a terrific handyman company!

Tom was a pleasure to have in our home. Tom helped to put together a boot bench and a television cabinet. The television cabinet was complex, but Tom handled it easily. He also helped to put up a dry erase board in minutes. I recommend Tom to any friends that need help with a handyman, whether it's assembling new furniture or repairing a sprinkler system. Thanks, Tom!

Called them yesterday just before 6pm to ask to get some security bars installed for me. they showed up here this morning. It was a job I thought I could have done myself but I had a feeling something would come up that I wasn't expecting and sure enough it did. Ken took care of everything, quick and efficiently. Great guy. Decades of experience. Great price. I highly recommend him for any handyman work you might have. Saved me a big headache.

As it turns out, we got much more than we imagined when we hired Pat: not just a carpenter and "handyman," but a craftsman. Our first project with him was a fence that "fit" the home, IPE deck, etc., and he exceeded our expectations (see photo).

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.
