The plumber replaced the existing water line with a new water line from the meter to the house. Involved cutting driveway and trenching to the house. The price was better than a couple other plumbing companies I contacted. The work was done on time and the price was as estimated,

I hired Kenneth Newcomb to replace my old wooden fence in the backyard of my townhome. He purchased the wood and custom made the gate for me. He was very patient during the entire process because it rained for 2 straight weeks, which made it impossible for him to start the job, but the first dry day we got, he and his assistant were out there installing my fence. It turned out wonderful! I'm thankful for a job well done.

They just finished my patio and fence installation. I will definitely be hiring them again for future projects. Hemi was so polite and courteous. My patio looks amazing and the fence is awesome. They also gave me a good price on both the patio and the fence. They cleaned up after themselves as well. Very professional.

Met Keith and received an estimate and Keith installed 3 gates as requested and did a great job on the fence and the gates. It has never looked better. I would definitely recommend Foster Construction to anyone looking to have fence or deck work done.

When I hired Bordeaux Construction I was surprised they could get to my driveway as quick as they did. It was a very large 2 car drive way and they had to use a Bobcat to dig it out to set the forms. There was minimal damage to the yard. The following day they poured the concrete. They are a professional crew and got the job done very fast. They also had to take down some fencing and re- install it afterwards. My yard went from grass and dirt to concrete in almost 48 hours. Simply amazing I saved over $500.00 over the other estimates I received.The price was excellent and the work virtually flawless. I would recommend them for any concrete work. They also do many other things around the house as well. You cannot go wrong with this company. I also check with the licensing board and the better business bureau they have no complaints in 13 years of business. Thumbs up.

Tim did some repairs on my fence gates and installed a new faucet in my kitchen- which ended up being a bigger job than expected. He's polite and thorough, and I'll be using him to powerwash the house as soon as it's warm again and any other jobs I have in the next few months. Thanks!

I called him to repair my gate and it turns out it was broken beyond repair. He built a new one! It cost me very little compared to what I thought I'd have to pay. He's the best!

They installed a new walkway at our rental property and did a great job. My only criticism would be that I would have preferred better communication when it came to any delays/changes to when they did the work. But the work itself was top notch and I would recommend them to anyone who's looking to get some concrete laid down.

Oscar and the Williamsburg Construction Landscaping Company are really good. We had to wait for them a couple of weeks to start because they had other projects, but Oscar communicated that with us from the very beginning and really did an amazing job on our yard (in a timely manner) once they started here. He came with CREATIVE ideas, which we needed, and he went above and beyond what we expected. Before they finished, we asked him to do another couple of jobs like installing a railing for the front steps and screening-in our back porch and he was willing and able to help us. Such a talented group of guys! Within about a week, we finally have a nice front lawn/driveway and finished brick patio that we've been trying to get finished for 2 years! We'd recommend him to any one- big or small jobs.

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.
