Chris was fantastic! I had several questions before starting the project and he was very responsive in the days leading up to the work. On the day he came (on time!) he installed a ceiling fan for us , a dimmer switch in another room and replaced 4 lighting fixtures around the house... all in a surprisingly short amount of time. He was knowledgeable, efficient, affordable, prompt and friendly -- everything one could hope for in a handyman. He even let me watch him work (I'm interested in learning how to do some of this myself) and was very gracious about me asking him lots of questions. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again for electrical work and would definitely consider him for other projects (he said he used to be a painter, for example, and later worked on homes that needed absolutely everything replaced, so he seems to have lots of experience fixing/installing/replacing). I read all his negative reviews, but thought he had reasonable responses and I'm so glad we hired him for this job. We will certainly use him again in the future!

Hired Daily Service Solutions to install overhead rack in my garage. I chose him initially due to his best bang for the bucks, and I did not regret.

This is a custom job for the existing wooden shelf to be add in an extra layer. Lino the handyman did a good job, only minus issue was he delayed it the appointment time without letting customer knows in advance.

Installed our kitchen faucet along with the plumbing and looks/ works great. After he realized I was missing pieces he told me over the phone while at Home Depot what we needed. He stayed longer than he needed to get the job done. Great guy!

We had Gavin do a variety of items (reconnect a bathroom vanity, hang a mirror, install bathroom items, install closet door guides, vertical blinds in the dining room, reconnect the kitchen sink, reconnect an electric cooktop and install smoke/carbon monoxide detectors). He was a great communicator before he arrived to verify the time he needed to arrive (had to coordinate with a countertop installer and carpet shampoo company). He arrived on time, very personable and asked if there was any additional work. Gavin is very nice and performed everything on our list without hesitation.

John was great to work with. He assembled the furniture that we requested and even took on another project that we hadn't planned on. He's also great about offering other services and recommendations. He was kind enough to haul out a bunch of trash and recycling from the packing material for the furniture since our building can't handle that volume of disposal. We'd definitely hire him again as a handyman, and would consider reaching out to him for other skills as well.

Chuck tiled two bathrooms for us and did a wonderful job. I went with him over other contractors because he sent me an email estimate listing in detail exactly what was included in the price so there were no surprises later on. He kept me updated on his progress as he was working, and the end result was beautiful. I will definitely hire him again in the future!

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.
