EBRR Property Maintenance Services is a well-organized and Trust worthy company. I received an estimate in just one day and started the work next day after the estimate. If you need an immediate solution/work I would recommend EBRR Company. I have had many companies and individuals coming in with their estimates, but none was as detailed as they were. Added advantage is; the service is good, they are very professional and ready to take the extra step to keep the customer happy. I would suggest EBRR to anyone who needs Insulation done. Thank you!

Anthony did a really great job with our yard and was reasonably priced. He was very responsive when we reached out to him and we'll definitely be using him again. We had him do general yards maintenance (cutting grass and trimming shrubs) and will likely have him help with more landscaping at a later date.

Jose and his assistant provided a great experience. Jose responded right away to my request (as did one other provider). His note was clear. He picked up right away when I called, and explained how his service would work. He came the very next day, right on time. He presented his insurance information and got right to work. He and his assistant were thorough and professional the whole time. After the cleaning (and replacement of some conduit) he stayed around to help me evaluate the performance of the dryer, to make sure that everything was in order. I will definitely use EES again for any vent cleaning needs, or other services they provide.

Jeff was very professional. He answered all my questions and helped me understand the operation and maintenance of a wood fireplace, with which I had no experience. I needed a chimney inspection and sweep. He found that some minor repairs were needed, as I knew from my home inspection, and he completed the job on the same day at my request.

Being a single woman you don’t know who to trust. From the time he walked in the door, I could see by how he presented himself in a respectful manner, that he respected my home. He offered to put covers on his shoes whereby he would not track dirt from the outside on my carpet. That morning I had left massages for several companies, who never returned my phone call. EGH services was the only company who responded in a timely manner, and provided excellent service, answering questions that I had. I would recommend and use EGH services, when I have other projects that I need help with.

I had a tenant move out and left the yard of the townhouse a disaster. It looked as if they hadn't done any yard maintenance in months with piles of leaves blown into the corners and weeds and vines all over the back yard and fence. Reinaldo did a great job on short notice getting the yard fixed up and ready for the next tenant. Great job! You guys got the work done exactly as requested and faster than I could have imagined. Thank you. I will hire Del Ray again to take care of future yard maintenance and landscaping projects.

I had a leak that needed to be fixed, a bay window that needed to be repainted and calked and drywall that needed to be redone. Initially i shopped estimates from different contractors - every one of them telling me the leak was from a different place. I ended up going with L&N because Sam seemed like a straightforward, honest guy and was also more affordable than all the other estimates i received. He identified the leak immediately, checked multiple times to make sure it was fixed, repaired my drywall and re painted my bay window. He wore booties the whole time while inside which my wife appreciated, he cleaned up all dust and debris and provided receipts for all materials. The workmanship was great and my bay window and drywall look like new. He also warranties his work. Highly recommend him for any general contractor needs you may have.

My highest recommendation to Jon Drew! He replied immediately to my inquiry (on a Sunday afternoon!), and was on his way within the hour. He investigated the problem thoroughly, explained what was needed to repair my serious kitchen drain problem, and then did immaculate and highly effective work to correct it. He even checked the entire pipe system and gave me invaluable information regarding maintenance and future repairs. All this for a ***VERY REASONABLE SERVICE COST***. I am extremely happy with his work, and found him to be both highly professional and quite personable to deal with. He has earned a loyal customer in me, and I will not hesitate to call him for all my home plumbing needs in the future. 5 STARS!!

Pest Proof - Eric Littlejohn - treated our basement and addition crawl space for camel/cave crickets. He was very thorough in applying both wet and dry pesticides. Additionally, Eric made a personal call to our house to investigate our situation and discuss his methods before sending a proposal. There was no hard-sell for long term contracts or additional services we did not need. He followed up with a written proposal via email and because of his professional manner and reasonable pricing we hired him. My guess is that he will be our "go-to" for pest control services in the future.

Sam and his team are great folks to work with - they were able to work around my strict "weekend only" schedule, and Ronny was able to come out on a Sunday morning caulk my windows and repair holes in my walls on short notice. His work was so fast, and I am extremely satisfied with the job and expertise these guys bring to the table! I am thankful to have found a reliable general contractor, and will continue to tap SR Home Improvements for any future work needed for my house.

After a separate company provided plumbing services, we had a lovely gaping hole in the drywall. We looked at the hole and figured why not get a quote for additional work we needed done to our home. We pointed out a few holes in the wall and needed a door replaced so why not get a comprehensive quote / estimate. We decided to go to Thumbtack, Odd Jobs responded first and we commenced the process. Odd Jobs consistently communicated with us, worked with us to solidify an accurate estimate and explained the work, were flexible to schedule the work and explained what resources and materials would be necessary to complete the job. They arrived on time to perform the work. They had the right tools and materials and did an exceptional job from start to end. They cleaned up afterwards and were professional throughout the experience. The quality alone will compel us to call Odd Jobs when we need folks that understand their business and respect their customers. Thanks Curtis

Cristian and Luis were responsive, reliable and hard-working. I had to have a bathroom remodel finished very quickly and they were able to start immediately and completed quickly. Also, the estimate was very reasonable. I had asked for some extra work and they were accommodating and when the total bill came, they were spot on with the actual cost compared to the estimate and the extra work added to the bill was very fair. It’s difficult to find a good dependable handyman that you feel comfortable working with, and I found this in C&L. I already have other projects with which, I will be asking for their services. The work they did for me was drywall and tiling of floor and walls of a full bathroom and extensive drywall repairs in other areas of the home.

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.
