We were quite impressed with the service work Luke and his daughter displayed when they arrived on the property. Professionalism and responsiveness was easily seen along with the work quality that was completed. I will definitely recommend using Henningsen Property Maintenance to anyone. Well done.

Jeff fixed drywall in our basement. He was incredibly responsive, his work was excellent and he went above and beyond in checking in with us to be sure his work met our expectations. We felt his prices were very fair and his service was great. He kept the worksite clean and organized and kept us informed of his progress throughout the job. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for services and would use him again without hesitation.

After my very unfortunate experience with Ludwig Plumbing out of Lake in the Hills who could not complete this job in 5 weeks and never returned any of my calls, I was very pleased with JDM. Dave came out the same day and completed the work very quickly. He was polite, knowledgeable and good and I highly recommend him for almost any kind of handy man service as well as plumbing.

Walt was great to work with! We had him build and install a new fence for our backyard. He was thorough and detailed and quick to get back to us on quotes and then the work was done shortly after. I would highly recommend him to anyone! Fair prices too! You won't be disappointed.

I hired Bill to repair/replace some doors, install a sink, paint and a few other small odd jobs around my house. He did a nice job on the work and the cost of his service was very reasonable. I think he might have gotten the job done a little faster if he put in full days and had his girlfriend not come with him to work every day, but overall, I am very satisfied with the job.

Matt did a great job on building a custom pergola with very short notice. He was easy to work with, and I’ve already received several compliments from people about how nice it looks. Would recommend him, and would use his services again.

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.

Normally, I am not one to write reviews; but, the work that Thomas performed certainly warrants one. Over the course of 3+ days, Thomas strengthened our staircase while also building a beautiful custom wood railing. Thomas' work ethic is unsurpassed, as he communicated brilliantly, arriving on time and not leaving until the job was completed to his high standards. Please don't hesitate to contact me for photos of the completed job, it is absolutely beautiful. I would not hesitate to hire Thomas in the future, and will most definitely be recommending him to friends and family as well. Thomas, thank you again for doing such an amazing job, my family truly appreciates it!

Jose arrived right on time and was a very good customer service expert. Rather than haggle and try to nickel-and-dime me to death like my previous and prior lawn service guys, Jose was very pleasant and professional in addressing all my last-minute questions—as well as my small follow up requests for the next service. Based on our pre-hire negotiations and his on-site customer service, I think he is “The Real Deal” and his lawn maintenance services will only grow much bigger and better. I can’t recommend this service more highly!

After 8 quotes for a fence from local fence companies and contractors, I came across thumbtack and figured I would give it a try. Almost immediately entering my info Joe reached out. I was immediately impressed with his professionalism and timely quote. He actually included the exact material quote showing exactly what materials along with how much everything cost. He was the clear winner. I was pretty specific with the timeframe, and he got it done. He stayed on budget as promised, and was great with communication throughout the project. Joe completed a 90+ foot privacy fence with a beautiful gate that crosses my driveway. I recommend Joe Mahas and Native Remodels without hesitation.

He didn't clear a couple of bricks that I told him about so he damaged his machine. I guess I could have tried to clear them, but I was overseeing two other workers that day.

Our project was done perfectly. We had a small (<500 sq. ft.), but four-part project consisting of some new work, some repair/maintenance. Adam came out to see my request and provided a written quote. (Seems like a given, but the other contractors didn't do this.) The crew showed up on the scheduled day and knocked it out of the park! They went the extra-mile too, such as hand digging for a slab in the back yard to avoid damaging the lawn with the skid-steer.

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.

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.
