We had a leaking roof, and Jeff promptly came over and inspected our roof thoroughly, both from above and from inside the attic, and offered us multiple options and quotes on repairing versus replacing the roof. We ultimately went with replacing the roof. The installation process went smoothly. Jeff was very considerate, respectful and professional. He is also very enthusiastic about his work and is generous in sharing his knowledge and explaining what he does. Our roof ended up costing ~$2000 less than another quote we got that offered us the exact same shingles And from seeing how Jeff does his work I'm pretty sure I ended up getting not only a better price, but better workmanship as well. If you're looking for a roofer/handyman who takes pride of his craft, genuinely cares about his customers and would fix/improve their dwellings as if it's his own, Jeff is definitely your guy.

Eddie does excellent work. He worked around my schedule, was very professional, and he was willing to add on additional projects when I requested. I’d highly recommend Eddie for all home improvement and handyman needs. I will certainly be calling him again in the future.

Jeff responded quickly to our request for a contractor. He was able to come the next day. The job was not an easy one. Working in a small attic space, dirty and dusty, he successfully accomplished the job that needed to be done. He was creative, resourceful and experienced. We will use him again!

We hired Lyndell to patch up some spots on our bathroom ceiling where paint was chipping and surface mold was growing. We had our entire bathroom remodeled a little over a year ago but come to find many corners were cut leaving us with small issues piling up. Lyndell was prompt to respond to our initial request. When my husband and I finally met Lyndell he was very thorough and extremely knowledgeable. He provided great details. Answered all our questions. Calmed my anxieties about our mounting bathroom problems. The work was quality and a great value. I wish we had hired Lyndell for our initial remodel. He has so much expertise. My husband and I would fully recommend him.

We have known and used Milwaukee Handyman Services for years. Dana Salazar was originally referred to us by several satisfied customers. We know him to be competent for new installations as well as remedial work. He has worked for us doing both complicated electrical work as well as finished and rough carpentry. Best of all, his fees are reasonable.

I hired John for 2 projects at my house. A wood fence install, and some "snap in" wood flooring in one of our rooms. Both were done timely and look nice. I believe John also gained a few Jobs from my neighbors based on the results of the fence he installed.

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.

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.
