Jarrod did fantastic work with my shower doors. It probably took a bit more time than he expected, but he was patient. He also ordered the necessary parts himself and that was great help as well. Will definitely use him again

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.

He helped me finish a project that had been left incomplete by a previous handyman. The project involved ripping out bad drywall work and re-doing it. I look forward to having him come back to finish the exterior work around the new window.

I hired Rob to help with my SafeRacks installation, he arrived on time was very courteous and professional and got the job done in a neat and clean manner. I liked the fact that Rob spent additional time making sure the installation was done right and will not have any issues in future. I was impressed with Rob's work and hired him once again to also mount my 65" curved TV which he was also able to help me with. The TV mount looks great. 5/5 would definitely hire and strongly recommend Rob to anyone that needs a great handyman!

High recommend Enrique for water heater installation and any other handyman projects. Very professional and did a great job replacing our water heater. The connections were different and complex but Enrique took care of everything with ease. Was on time and gave a detailed overview of the installation and what it involves. Highly recommended!!!

Jose did handyman and painting work when I was selling my house and he was a lifesaver! I hired another painter but he left many part unfinished and sloppy and it was not in a condition to be sold. I then hired Jose and he painted outside of my house superbly and on time. He also fixed all the mistakes of my previous painter made inside the house. He also does handyman work so I wasn't waiting on anything that needs to fixed. I thought I couldn't sell the house in the spring selling season but Jose came after his other job to help me at night so I can make the date. Not only Jose does fantastic work but he could not be a nicer person. I am so glad I met Jose and any time I need handyman work or painting, I will call Jose and recommend to my friends!

I highly recommend Art's HandyMan Services. I contacted Art in the morning regarding a bad hot water heater and he had it replaced by the end of the day. He and his associate were on time, polite, honest and very great to work with. Top quality at a very fair price. I will use him again.

He did a fantastic job cleaning the mess of my house even though I asked him super last minute! I am really pleased with his depth of cleaning and I don't think that I could have found better. I would definitely hire him again if needed in the future. Everything was deeply cleaned with no short cuts taken.

The Handyman Seattle and Jonathon (Craftsman) saved the day. We discovered our water heater leaking and within 5 hours of our call to The Handyman Seattle, Jonathon had evaluated the situation, determined we needed a new heater (10 years old!), bought the new one, removed the old one and got the new one up and running. We are planning on replacing the carpet anyway, and Jonathon took the extra time to remove the carpet and pad to made sure our floors can dry out fully. A true professional who was courteous, efficient, and fast! Thanks so much.

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

My wife and I hired Eric to change how the door to our laundry room opens. It opened to the inside of the room and we wanted it to open into the hallway. Eric was able to come the day after we contacted him. He did a professional job (door tuned out well) and was courteous. We will consider using Eric on future jobs.

I contracted with Jesse to repair a bath and shower, both had leaked through tiles and there was extensive water damage on walls and floor in both bathrooms. I think Jesse and his team are great at carpentry and masonry, from prep to finish. The extensive water damage made it difficult to come up with an accurate quote, and in the end unforeseen damage in both bathrooms was repaired with additional updates for an additional fraction of the original estimate and with excellent workmanship! I think Jesse is fair, reasonable and has his customer’s interests in mind.

Andrew repaired or replaced several items in a rental unit for me including a busted shower door and a bathroom exhaust fan. He was very easy to work with, communicative, and punctual. His rates were very reasonable as well. Had a very good experience and would definitely hire him 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.
