Dennis was terrific, he installed our garbage disposal (within a really tight space), even though it took a couple of trips to get the correct parts. Fantastic value, and he was prompt and thorough. Will definitely use him again for our handyman projects.

Enrique is very professional & did good job. I got 3 things fixed- leak in bathroom sink, replacing fixed shower head with hand held & what looked like leak at water entry point. He found that there wasn't any leak at the water entry but was due to moisture. He cleaned the copper pipes & scrapped the wall around and added insulation foam around pipes to avoid this happening in future.

"If I could give more than five stars I would. Jose was prompt, friendly, smart, and reliable. He’s the sort of handyman you can explain your project to, he’ll ask thoughtful questions, and then you can leave and he’ll do it. And if something unforeseen happens, he knows how to make it work. He went out of his way to make sure everything is right. For example, we had a large piece of our wall damaged by previous workers. As Jose’s helper was repairing it, he felt air coming out of the hole. Silly me, I sort of dismissed it as air coming from outside. But Jose realized it was air from our heat pump being misrouted into the wall instead of the floor vent where it belonged. He tracked it down and found that one of our ducts had been disconnected. And he fixed it. Incredible. You can just tell he totally gets it, that your project is in good hands, and he’ll take care of anything that may pop up in the meantime. I will recommend Jose to anyone looking for a handyman.

Had a home that I was listing for sale, and a list of to-dos from the inspectors report. With a very short time frame allotted to respond to the inspection finding, Eric and Ricardo were able to come out the next day and address all issues above and beyond expectations. Polite, friendly and most importantly professional. I would recommend them for any and all types of Handyman work.

Ivan can handle seemingly any handyman job, on time, quickly, and with no fuss. He helped us with a wide variety of projects in less than four hours: 1) fixing a doorway threshold, 2) fixing another door that was scraping a floor, 3) fixing the torn screen in a door, 4) installing wall plates over built-in speaker wires, 5) replacing a bit of baseboard trim, and 6) installing a bathroom sink faucet. We wouldn't hesitate to reach out to him again.

Chris is the ultimate craftsman and did a beautiful job for us. We hired him to repair the 30 year old drywall in our garage that had never been painted. He did a fantastic job drywalling, repairing, and painting, and now the garage is the best looking room in our house. Thanks, Chris! Paula

Antonio built a new floor and subfloor in my closet after the hot water tank leaked, and ruined/rotted the floor. He is fast and efficient, did an excellent job, and is very kind and respectful. I could tell he knew exactly what he was doing, without question. He also saved me about $700 from what a water restoration Co. quoted. I will absolutely hire him again! Even the plumber that put in the new tank was very, very impressed, and asked for his information.

Larry was great to work with. He was very responsive, friendly and calm throughout the whole process. We had a couple of hick ups due to the tv mount being a cheaper one but Larry went out of his way to ensure we’d get the job done. Great handy man. As he was leaving we discussed some future projects as well. Would definitely hire again.

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.
