Priced a fixed price and stuck to it Helped with deck removal and didn't damage the deck. Offered adding the clean out and gave me time to compare costs on the internet. He was offering at half the cost and let me know it wasn't necessary because the current repair is better than the original that lasted 30 years. Stopped work and explained all important steps. Took the time to explain the current status when I got curious. Had the help and tools for everything. Showed the camera view from the house to the sewer when the job was finished. Replaced the deck boards and power washed the deck so it was better then the start. Demonstrated great pride in his work.

We had initially hired Salvo to fix a botched plumbing job. He was quick to respond to our Thumbtack request, and was also available to provide service soon. During that visit, he mentioned that he also does partial home remodeling - such as tiling, floors, bathrooms, etc. Salvo was very transparent in explaining that he only does the work he feels comfortable doing and has expertise in. We appreciated his honesty as we had recently been suffering through a string of contractors who promised competence, but instead left us with repeated disastrous outcomes. We invited Salvo back to our home to get estimates on 2 incomplete bathroom remodels, that required a lot of re-work due to how our previous contractor approached the project. Salvo gave us a reasonable quote for our project, and assured us that when he was working on our home, he would only be working on our home, so we wouldn't have to go chasing after him. Cut to the end of the bathroom remodel - everything looks fantastic. The tiles are expertly cut and laid, and fixtures are appropriately installed. Any rework that needed to happen, whether it be plumbing or concrete, was done cleanly and efficiently. Additionally, we asked Salvo to install a back splash, kitchen faucet, garbage disposal, and outdoor spigot for the hose. We would highly recommend Salvo for any job, and look forward to working with him in the future, as well. He was reliable, professional, personable, and punctual! He was cooperative in fixing odds and ends as we pointed them out, and he also took initiative to tell us what needed repair or what could be salvaged. He took occasional help from his wife and another family member, and they were all a pleasure to work with.

On a fluke, I typed in on Thumbtack that I needed a engineered hardwood floor installed in my living room/dining-room and the same rooms needed paint. I received a reply from Chano ( A Plus Decorating ) within minutes. The next day Chano came out and gave me an estimate, it was reasonable/ not low but competitive, and I hired him. The paint job turned out to be the best ever, not only did they paint but filled in any and all imperfections and nail holes on the walls! Turned out great! I also love my new engineered hardwood floor, it turned out fabulous! Chano and his crew were always on time, clean and professional. On the days Chano ( the owner ) could not be here, he would show up at the end of the day to inspect the work that was done, he really cares and takes great pride in EVERYTHING he and his employees do. We have already told him that we want him to do more painting and wall repair next spring in another room. I would without hesitation recommend this company!! Thanks again Chano, see you in the spring! Sara & Andy

Anthony was great to work with! He was knowledgeable, efficient and thorough. He was polite, helpful and reasonably priced for the high quality of work performed. He was able to stay within our budget, which was greatly appreciated. We had two rooms (including closets, trim, casings, doors, etc) that needed to be painted, with small repairs. He went above and beyond to provide the best service possible. He provided recommendations and even helped with the color choice in one room, and it looks great! We would definitely recommend Advanced Painting, and look forward to working with them again! Thank you Anthony for two great rooms!

Great experience, professional, on time and very responsive. After the first repair was unsuccessful, he even offered to come out and try out some other repairs to ensure the job was done correctly. Very thorough and made sure I knew exactly what was happening and what repairs he planned on doing. Would definitely hire again!

Very last minute we needed help and fast with a drain issue! Michael Hood was quick in response and quote and was even able to fit us into their busy schedule in less than 1 hour (as they were working within the area). The original problem was more than we knew and Michael was straight forward and made sure we were aware of all the options before moving forward.His team was professional and kept us in the loop every step of the way through the repair process. Prices were fantastic, work was done meticulously taking every effort to get the job done quickly, efficiently, and with care. Our family is very thankful that Michael Hood and his team made a difficult issue look easy- peasy! Thank you for all your hard work. We know where to look when we have any issues in the future!!

I called and spoke to Brian, the contractor, on a Monday about a custom mailbox that I needed to be constructed on my house. He came out the next day and properly told me how much time he needed to find all the components and the custom paint in order to comply with the home owners association regulations. The job was done in less time than estimated, his craftsmanship was impressive and he was very diligent. The final cost of the mailbox was reasonable and cost effective compared to the rest of contractors in the area. I rate this contractor 5 stars. I will l hire them for future work and recommend him to my neighbors.

We had an emergency repair on a weekend that needed immediate attention. Drain Brothers responded within minutes and on site in no time. Very professional. I also called multiple places that wanted to gouge us for extra emergency fees. Drain Brothers was fair and very reasonable in price

Lyndell did an outstanding job on our powder room. He came to our home to give us an estimate. He told what exactly needed to be done. He showed me the area needing repairs. Other companies expanded the area of repair in their estimates. He worked tirelessly on the project. The powder room looks like no work was ever done. Excellent. I highly recommend Lyndell's Home Remodel and Repair.

STVU came out when I was having AC issues. My home is only 10 years old and I have been having trouble with the AC unit since I had the house built. Paul and Igor were really great. They came out and diagnosed the issue. Unfortunately it was not something that could be repaired with certainty so I had no real choice but to get a new unit (cost over $3,500 + $500 in diagnosis/pressure test costs). Paul and Igor arranged to install the unit the next day and it has been working very, very well. My only comment is that the price for the new AC unit was slightly high and normally I would have taken time to shop around for comparable bids just to be sure I am getting fair pricing. I did not really have a chance to do that since I have a 17 month old child in the house and needed working AC as soon as possible. If you are getting a new AC unit I would suggest getting at least 3 bids before making your decision. Not all AC units are of equal quality and I am sure the unit STVU installed is good. My suggestion is in no way meant to infer that STVU did anything less than an excellent job. I feel their workmanship and responsiveness was very, very good.

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.
