John is a professional and did excellent work for me. First he replaced a kitchen faucet, then leanking hot water heater valve, then re-cabled hot water heater wires that had been incorrectly cabled. I would definitely hire him again for any kind of handyman work.

Ronnie was so helpful and courteous! It was great working with Ronnie and I would certainly recommend him. I will definitely use Coastal Painting for future projects.

Verified review

We got several quotes and one stop renovations came in with most affordable price. We made a decision to proceed with a bathroom remodel, closet addition, and mud room remodel. We expressed our wants and our vision came true. I would say the communication between the led man and the workers got a little blurred at times. Luckily, I work for home some days and had to reiterate information. I will say if anything was not up to par they fixed it. The end result turned out great.

Yancy and her friend showed up an hour early (perfect) and worked quickly and efficiently throughout the next few hours to make my apartment move out ready. I appreciated their hard work and affordable pricing. Only reason for 4 stars was there was still some grime on kitchen appliances and dust on certain parts of the floor that I noticed after they left. But overall, good value.

I needed to have new kitchen and bathroom sink fixtures installed but didn't want to pay the high installation cost of the large plumbing companies. I found Housepro Plumbing Service and Dave Martin through Thumbtack. Daves hourly rate was affordable for the work that I needed done and the finished product was just as I wanted. Its good to know that I now have a plumber to call on if needed and I'll recommend Dave and Housepro Plumbing Service to friends and anyone who tell me that they need a plumber.

After years of wanting my kitchen remolded, I've searched high and low for an affordable company with quality work. That is exactly what I got from this company. The team was professional and respectful, listening to my every concern/need. My countertops, wall paintings, and floor layout came out exactly how I imagined with little to no time at all. The crew left my house feeling more like a home. Will definitely hire/recommend this company should I need any work done. Thanks again!

I needed a handyman to adjust several interior doors in my house. I was matched with five pros, and Joe was the only one to personally respond to make sure he had a clear understanding of my request. He arrived in a timely manner and immediately got to work to fix my poorly hung doors. Although I told him I was resigned to having to eventually replace the doors with prehung doors, Joe did offer additional suggestions to help me consider avoiding this future expense. Before leaving, he noticed that my exterior door was also not closing properly, so he took the time to adjust that as well. I highly recommend Joe for professionalism, attention to detail, good value for the work and he seems to be an all around nice guy.

I hired Mike to replace a bedroom door in my home. Mike was very prompt in replying to my post. I set up a phone meeting to discuss the scope of the job. Mike arrived in a timely manner, and did a very professional job. The job was a little harder than expected as my home is 104 years old. So, my measurements weren't exact, but that was no problem for Mike. He made the necessary adjustments, completed the job, and cleaned up all saw dust debris very well before leaving. I will definitely hire Mike again.

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.
