We had Mr. Boiko put up a mirror in our guest bathroom and he also hung up 2 large, heavy pictures. He did a great job and we will be using his services for future projects. Thank you so much!

Mr. Spiker contacted me promptly, communicated frequently, set a time, and showed up precisely when he said he would. He completed the job thoroughly and cleaned up afterwards. I plan on using his services in the future and will refer him to family and friends. 5 stars. (6 if I could.)

They are very professional. My questions were addressed in a very timely manner. They were able to complete the job without me having to be at home which worked very well with my schedule. I was very happy with the results. Ryan went above and beyond by purchasing extra necessities that I would need for the proper maintenance for my lawn afterwards. I highly recommend them.

The technicians were very professional and on time for the project. I had been trying for months to get someone to fix my ceiling. They made sure everything was to my liking. I would use their services again for any project.

Weed control, leaf and debris removal, mowing and lawn care. Ongoing 2 week lawn maintenance. Devin and his brother were on time and did a fantastic job. We cannot use herbicides on the property and Devin worked us to still do the needed weed control. They clearly care fr and love what they do as the pride shows in their work. So much so, Devins brother shared that he had known that since he was 6 years old he wanted to runs landscaping business!

Bordeaux Construction Services did an outstanding job on a water damage repair job for my currently leased home. I believe the price was just right especially for the quick response from Lee. The home had first floor drywall damage caused by a plumbing leak in the 2nd floor master bath. Lee contacted me within 30 minutes of my quote request on Thumtak.com and asked to take a look at the water damage to the property two days later, on a Saturday, in order to provide a quote for the repair. After confirming with the tenant, we solidified the time. I was so happy with the expedited response and his response to me in general on the website that I then explained the problem to the best of my knowledge. I wanted a single general contractor to take care of my problem! It is such a pain dealing with multiple contractors for a repair job. I asked if Lee would could find the leak, repair it and the damaged drywall. He told me he would definitely do his best to fix the problem but he really needed to look at it first. I authorized him to do what he could. When Lee showed up at the property on Saturday, he did just that. He removed the damaged drywall, inspected the master bath plumbing, troubleshot by testing the bathtub plumbing and found the leak. He repaired the plumbing on the spot. He explained to the tenant they needed to allow time for the water in the ceiling to dry and for the repair to cure. On Monday, he called the tenant and asked them to test the repair. All went well and he scheduled the drywall repair two days later. The ceiling is dry wall with knock-down plaster which can be extremely hard to match in the middle of the ceiling. The tenant was extremely happy with the workmanship. I couldn't be more happy with his efforts as a property owner who is currently deployed overseas. He turned a truly stressfull situation for myself and the tenant family into a total success. Thank you Lee!

I hired Jerome for a landscaping project prior to putting my house on the market. I needed an overall cleanup of my property as well as mulching the beds, repositioning some plants, and planting new flowers. Jerome was extremely responsive with communication and very knowledgable about what would work best for my yard. I recommend him for landscaping services and I would definitely hire him again.

ALM built large a flowerbed, maintained existing ones, trimmed several large trees, buried drainage pipe, and hauled all debris away. Jerry had some very good ideas and suggestions, and his crew was friendly and hard working. I will use them again for future landscaping needs.

A plus home repair did great work on a number of handyman jobs. The price was affordable, he adjusted the turn around time to fit my needs and the old school customer service coupled with quality work has me guaranteed to be a returning customer.

Mike is top notch. I hired him to come in behind the original handyman I got off Craigslis. At first I thought $50 an hour was a bit pricey, but decided to give him a shot, and I'm glad I did. He arrived right on time, gave me exact time frame. Actually finish ahead of time and instead of taking the money and running he asked if there was anything I needed done to use the rest of the time I had paid for. The knowledge he had in so many different fields was impeccable. He is my go to in my home maintenance from now on. 5 stars for sure.

I had Dani’s services clean a office building of mine a few months back and they did so well that I used them for my own home after having family over for Father’s Day. The attention detail is what really blew me away. I was expecting great work but when I seen things clean that no one has ever even tried to clean or realized was dirty, I couldn’t help but give props. This is one company that I can say isn’t lying about work. Great Service!!

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.

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.
