I am very happy for the price and service that Ron’s Plumbing Company has provided. Thank you Nate and Jose for your hard work, and thank you Ron for your clear communication! I must be honest that initially I was very skeptical, and was judging them because I had a previous bad experience with a small business. The few bad reviewers on Yelp and Thumbtack made me even more uncomfortable. I asked lots of questions, and Ron answered all of them patiently, without getting offended. He explained to me that many years ago, the company was bigger and some of the employees were not doing their jobs as they were supposed to, hence the bad reviews. Since a year ago, Ron has decided to size down the company because of his health. He only hires people that he trusts, and since then all reviews have been positive. Finally, it was the big discount that convinced me to give them a try. I had another company from Chesapeake coming over, quoting $1500 more than Ron’s company for the same project. That company is bigger with all the inspectors wearing professional uniforms, but I thought I should not pay that much money just for the uniforms. My previous bad experience was with T&C Maintenance. In April of 2015, I had a blockage of my laundry drain. It was through Thumbtack that I hired Tom from T&C Maintenance to fix the problem. Tom came 2-3 times, and finally was able to make the gray water run again with his mechanical snakes. He was very courteous and charged me less than $100. I left a great review for T&C Maintenance. However, just after 2 usages, the laundry drain became clogged again. Since my family was traveling out of the country in the summer, I did not contact Tom until August. Tom (the father of T&C) said the cast iron pipes may have become too old, and it was likely that the pipes were rusting from inside out. He offered a great price to replace ~25’ of pipes with PVC for $275. When I called T&C again for the project, it was the son Chris who picked up the phone. He looks exactly like Tom. He explained that Tom has decided not to do any crawlspace work because he has got prostate cancer. Instead of $275, he charged me $660 for the work, saying that materials alone would cost more than $300. Being a first time house owner with no idea what could be going on in the mysterious crawl space, I trusted him. Five months after, I started to smell something foul from the crawl. The bad odor comes and goes, so I did not pay too much attention until my termite inspector noticed me the problem in Late June. When I called T&C again, without knowing who I was Chris said he would come to my house the next day at 6:00 pm. When I texted him my address and explained that he was here last November, however, he never showed up. When I texted him more, he blocked me from his phone. I finally decided that I should venture to the crawl myself, so that I will not be fooled by dishonest people. What outraged me is that when I was there, I saw the cast iron pipes that T&C has replaced, my dryer vent cap that disappeared since T&C visited, a water bottle, and some random garbage. I did ask Chris to take out the replaced cast iron pipes, to which he responded it was not standard for plumbers to take them out, and there are a lot of other parts in the crawl. The truth is, I could find no other trash other than the ones I have mentioned above. If I could review T&C again, I will give it a big thumb down. Don’t get fooled by the innocent looking faces. When I first met Nate from Ron’s company, as I said, I was not trusting him very much. For one, his name never appeared on Thumbtack. For another, I thought he talked too much for Jose, who I was told speaks perfect English, has good reviews on Thumbtack, and was supposed to be the team leader. I was under the impression that Nate was taking advantage of him, with him doing the sweet talks to get my money, while Jose does the dirty job. I was wrong. They both worked very hard, and very often it was Nate who crawls under there to do the difficult jobs. Eventually they charged me $1100, which included installing an additional 10’ of PVC pipe (because apparently the entire length has become rusty, fragile or with holes), and cutting up and removing the cast iron pipes left by T&C. Nate took a lot of pictures to show what it was like in the crawl space after the work was done. He also showed me the holes on the cast iron pipes he has replaced. I also appreciate him giving me professional advices a few times. For example, I wanted to keep the replaced sand for my garden, but he said that sand is contaminated with the mold-killing chemicals and bad for plants. I would have never thought of that. I have full confidence that they have done a great job. I will hire them again in the future.

My yard was very overgrown ... Weeds, volunteer trees, overgrown EVERYwhere. Jerry and his team got caught at another job longer then expected. When I told him that the next day wouldn't work for me but he could come the next week if he wanted to. He said no he would come that day and he did. He worked until after dark until the job was done.. When i looked at it the next day I was amazed. All the overgrowth was gone an my yard looked better then it had in years. I signed him up for twice a month maintenance and I will use him for special projects over the summer. Great job !!! highly recommend him.

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.

The owner/technician was not only knowledgeable about the service he performed, but he was also prompt and courteous. The saying "jack of all trades master of none" is far from the truth as it relates to this company. A broad spectrum of services are provided in high quality with excellent professionalism. I would definitely use their services again. (A/C & plumbing customer)

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.
