Corey is OUTSTANDING... This is the second project he has tackled for me and I am almost speechless by his impeccable work. That is saying a lot, since I am one picky who has been called (very tough to work for) before... He Arrives On Time, ALWAYS no questions asked. If you need work done on the weekend, he comes then as well. He is Very honest. I can leave my keys with him go to work and come home. He works hard above anything else, and boy does he do a good job. He works incredibly fast. He has a great personality, very funny, smart, and loves cookies :) He is, simply put, the best of the best in this business... Corey no longer is just a painter, or a handyman, he is someone I could call a friend.

I am a property manager and have used the services of Conrad Hays of Affordable Appliance Repair for about two years. He is the best appliance repairman I ever worked with. He always tries to solve the problem during one visit: professionally and quickly establishes the cause of the problem, solves the problem; also his prices are really affordable. I would recommend working with Conrad Hays anytime!

Justin was on time for the job. He repaired a broken water line in my garage wall. What I appreciated was that he made sure I witnessed and approved each stage of the repair to ensure customer satisfaction. He then went above expectations by installing extra insulation in the wall (that was previously missing) and then re-sheet rocked. Justin did an excellent job. I highly recommend his handyman services and will definitely use him in the future when needed.

Dennis helped me with replacing a garbage disposal today on the hottest day of the summer. He got in touch with me to see if I was available earlier than our appointment time- so a plus to have 2 extra hours on my day off. He is very professional and courteous of your home. I asked him if he could help me with changing 2 locks - and he did. He is extremely affordable! All his work was only $20 more than the quote from the big box chain to install the new garbage disposal. He took away all the replaced items and even followed me to my bank ATM. I highly recommend him and will hire him again when I can use his help.

"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.

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.

Kellie is a treasure. I first hired him for an interior paint job [which was outstanding] and as we became acquainted - he's a very friendly, engaging man - further discovered his talent as both handyman and craftsperson, who's since assembled furniture for me & created a temporary, yet very attractive bay window treatment out of canvas drop cloths, which I'll likely have made into pleated curtains to compliment the dark wood mini blinds I'm waiting to arrive and will have him install. Lastly, we also discussed an idea for him to craft a trapezoid shaped bay window seating area with drawers for storage, topped with a thick pad & throw pillows. I would highly recommend him, for not only is he capable, his pricing is more than fair.

Chris and Joey did an incredible job on two of my bedrooms. I recently bought a 106-year-old house that hasn't been maintained much in the last 20 years. Two of the rooms had only wallpaper, and behind that was tongue-in-groove board. They came up with a creative solution for drywalling the rooms. Now the two rooms are ready to be lived in. The drywall job looks fantastic, the walls are smooth and there aren't any imperfections or anything. I will definitely hire them again in the future. I highly recommend them.

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.
