Hired Stephen to install 3 new toilets in our new townhome. Ran into some issues during the job and probably took more time than he even thought it would. He never complained or tried to say it would cost more, just continued on and got the job done. I did give him more than the original agreement. I would highly recommend Stephen for your handyman needs and I have already had him come back for another job. He says he can do most anything and I believe him!

I am more happy with Jarrod's work. His work on my lopsided tempered glass door was professional. He easily fixed the heavy shower door and hinge. He installed closet shelves for me, careful to place in studs. He used a level light when installing the shelves. He was not in a hurry to get job done. He is thoughtful to do the job right. I paid him more than he quoted because he did a superior job and was professional. I would have him back to do more difficult jobs. It was clear that this handyman knows his work and takes pride in his workmanship!

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.

I hired Dennis initially to install a new garbage disposal, but realized I also needed an OTR microwave replaced and two tubs caulked so asked if he'd be up for it before we met. He showed up 5 minutes early for the job, and finished all 4 tasks in a couple of hours (that's including a trip he took to lowes when he needed a new part for the disposal). His work was great, esp the caulk beads which are very smooth. His prices are right too -- he didn't even want to charge me for driving to lowe's. Great handyman, I've added him to my address book for anything I'm going to need in the future.

Jeff was an awesome contractor and did excellent work. He was very punctual and has a great attention to detail, which I value. Coming from the east coast, we have had terrible contractors come through our home, so it was nice to have such a professional person perform the work we needed today. I would highly recommend Jeff for any carpentry job in the future.

Art and team came by without a long wait to give a quote and then finish the work in a couple of days. We had Art and team install a couple of outlets on the deck, and we are pleased with the quality. We will certainly considering hiring Art for future handyman jobs.

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.

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.

I called Bryan to finish a fence installation that was started by some handyman I hired from Craigslist (BIG MISTAKE). Bryan was fast, efficient and a pleasure with whom to work. I ended up hiring him for a complete REMODEL of my home, from floor to ceiling. Bryan was, by far, the most economical and professional contractor I've worked with here in the Northwest. His work is of a very high quality and he is a perfectionist. Nothing was left undone, or halfway done. Each project he completed was done right the first time. He is a very hard worker, and cleans up after himself. I plan on doing another remodel on a different home and I am hiring Bryan, without hesitation. Rest assured, your work will get done in the time he states and will be done with an exceptional eye to detail. I really could not recommend him more highly; truly, best business relationship I've experienced in Olympia.

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.

All other estimates said we would need to replace the frame at $150 - 300 labor- Not including parts. Handyman was able to secure existing frame back in place. Thank you!! *Highly recommended*Honest*Quality work

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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 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.

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.

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.
