The problem with home repairs is that they don't always go as scheduled. The good news is mine was not an emergency and I was willing to work with Jason. Jason called, let me know what was happening on his current job and that he was running behind. We agreed to reschedule. He showed up late the next day. In his favor, he did call me and let know what was happening and the reason for delay. He did make it to house, found the problem with my plumbing and was on his way in 30 minutes. I have no issues with hiring him again if and when needed. Sad part is, even though he was done in 30 minutes he was still running behind for his last job of the day. Told him I would keep his number on file for future use if he was ok with it. He was. Will not hesitate to call him again if needed.

Sam came to my house to replace Kitchen Garbage Disposer and performed excellent work. He is also knowledgeable in many other trades. He also fixed Valves for my Sprinkler System which was an unplanned ad hoc request from me. He even went to hardware store to get the needed parts for repair. I also asked him questions related to other issues I had in the house with plumbing and electrical and he provided some suggestions to guide me in the right path for next step. I highly recommend his service.

Joel was awesome! He asked detailed questions about the project before coming out, and was ready to complete everything when he got here. He got it all done quickly and easily. He's nice, well-qualified in several areas of home repair/remodeling, and is reasonably priced. Great experience and now I will be referring him to all of my Real Estate clients for their jobs too.

A shingle from our roof was torn off by a storm. I called Jessie at 2:12 PM, and he was able to adjust his schedule in the moment and repair our roof by 5:00 PM the same day while I was at work. Everything was settled over the phone, and I was able to pay Jessie through PayPal for less than half of what he had originally quoted me in Thumbtack. Jessie gave me frequent updates by text, and our roof was repaired before I even got home from work. My experience with Jessie was the best I have ever received from a contractor, and I wish that other home repairs and maintenance could be this easy. We are sincerely grateful.

AG Perfection Cleaning did an excellent job of cleaning my home. I like the special touches of placing the paper strip on the toilet saying it was sanitized and folding the toilet paper into a triangle. It reminded me of being in a nice hotel. My whole house looked and smelled clean.

We wanted to install tankless water heater at our home and Caliber was one of the few quick responder. Adam is professional, understood the situation and provided the reasonable quote. Since our house has old electric panel and meter base, installing the 36KW water heater was not feasible so we drop the idea of tankless heater. Even though Caliber did not do the project, Adam is for sure on the list for next project.

I hired Dan to replace a garbage disposal. He was on time, very friendly, and worked hard. It turned out that the garbage disposal did not need to be replaced - Dan was able to repair it, which saved me a lot of money. He also mounted a dishwasher! I was very satisfied with his work, his work ethic and will definitely be using him for future jobs! Highly recommend!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
