I was very pleased with the professionalism, responsiveness and promptness in Ed Bilo calling me. We have an appointment for Friday, Sept. 14, 2018. I appreciate very much for his followup due to an error message sent him by Thumbtack implying that I had cancelled our appointment--which was not correct. I was so concerned that I called Mr. Bilo at 9pm tonight to make sure we still had an appointment on Friday. This is over and beyond professionalism that he answer the phone and was not upset.

My review: Jose of EES Services arrived on the date and time promised, in fact, he showed up early to accommodate my schedule. He was professional, polite, and thoughtful in our interaction. He did the job thoroughly and completely, and worked in the pouring rain to get my gutter cleaned! I couldn't be happier with the result and I highly recommend EES Services for any of your home repair needs.

Chimney Pros are fantastic! If I ever need roof repair I know where to go now. Jeff came by today to repair our flashing and the crown on our chimney, and I can't say enough good things. The price was right, the work was excellent quality, and Jeff was informative, kind and professional. Look nowhere else - these are your guys!

Keith provided outstanding service! I didn't buy the correct switch for the repair. Not only did he go with me to Lowes to get the correct parts but taught me through the process of installation. All while beating the hourly rates and total costs of competitors. Professional and I felt comfortable having him in my home. Will hire again!

Tim was truly outstanding. He was on time, professional, courteous, and even took time to show me a few tricks when I expressed interest. I had a ceiling leak that needed drywall repair, and it's one of the toughest jobs out there, but Tim did a great job and stayed late to make sure it was done right. I couldn't have asked for more, and I'll be going to him directly for all future projects around my house.

I was very impressed with Potomac Glass. I broke a window on a Saturday and could not find any company that would answer the phone. I found Thumbtack and sent a request for glass repair. Potomac responded in seven minutes. AJ said was very helpful on the phone and he explained the entire process, cost, schedule. He said he's be at our house Saturday evening at 5 p.m., and he arrived on time to see the window and take measurements. AJ and Sammy were friendly and patiently explained how they would fix the window. AJ said the repair would happen on Tuesday. AJ and Sammy arrived on Tuesday and replaced the window. I would definitely recommend Potomac Glass to anyone in need of glass repair.

He was very prompt with his fees, which were fair, and he answered all of my questions before he arrived. He did quick but quality work. I'll be using him in the future for any electrical needs. Thanks, Joey!

Rudis was quick to answer my request for a quote, he came the next morning. We had squirrels eat out a hole in the shingles on our roof and rain was in the forecast for the next day. Rudis was on time, inspected the damage, gave us a quote and made the repair all in one trip.

We have a 118+ year old house with lots of work to be done all the time. Having lived here for 14 years, we have hired many contractors. After our first experience in working with Ordonez Home Improvement, my husband and I were so extremely pleased with the work quality, value, and professionalism that we have at least two additional projects for which we plan to contract with Ordonez Home Improvement in the very near future. The initial work included tiling, plumbing, painting and door rehanging/repair. In some instances, the engagement included correcting the work of prior contractors. We have received very fair bids for additional work and, pending receipt of materials, we look forward to working with Ordonez Home Improvement again.

I am so happy to have met Olga and Beatrice - they are such wonderful and cheerful ladies. They went over every inch of my home, cleaning it with care and precision. They don't race in and race out like other cleaners I have used in the past. They always confirm their appointments in advance and are so easy to work with. I would highly recommend them without hesitation.

Erick and his team are exceptional. I contracted Erick initially to do some minor house repairs. However, after not being satisfied with the work of contractor hired to paint, I asked Erick to do a lot more work to include painting, installation of kitchen appliance, replace flooring, miscellaneous carpentry, and electrical work. Erick was so responsive to my need to get the work done quickly as getting ready to list house. Quality of work is good, Erick knows his trade and made suggestions and recommendations that proved to be invaluable. His team are hard workers and take pride in what they do. And, the pricing is exceptional. Definitely recommend and will use again in the future.

All projects went extremely well - we always contact Nick for all of our projects, around 10 over the last five years. These included rewiring our garage and basement interior, wiring external spotlights and lamps, electrical troubleshooting and repair. Nick is very professional, detailed, and is work is excellent. Also, he always figures out the best way to meet our objectives when we request him to tackle a new electrical project.

Sam and his team were a lifesaver by responding quickly to our need to restore a condo in need of repair from water damage. The water damage had displaced a renter and every day passed meant another day with no home for the renter and lost rental income for the owner. Sam and team juggled schedules and worked extended hours to complete the list of projects required to get the condo ship shape. This included drywall repair, woodwork/trim replacement, and extensive painting, as well as light fixture and window blind installations. Sam was accessible the entire time, their workmanship was high quality and their work ethic was strong. I highly recommend this company and plan to use them again in the future!

We worked with Joel to remove the hot tub from the patio, repair the patio and power wash the same. The end result was simply excellent! We really enjoyed working with Joel. He is very hardworking, responsive and flexible. The work turned out to be more than we had anticipated but Joel was very flexible about it. He even helped procure the raw materials at a discounted rate. Our neighbors was so impressed with his work that couple of them called him right away to get his help on their patio. I would anyday work again with him.

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.
