Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to hire a handyman?

It costs an average of $60 to $65 per hour to hire a handyman. Handymen charge a flat rate for larger jobs, like installing a toilet or hanging a chandelier.

Here's a glance at some common jobs and prices:

  • Garbage disposal installation: $150
  • Ceiling fan hanging: $100
  • Hall light installation: $65

Do I need a handyman or a contractor?

A handyman is extremely versatile and can help with many types of jobs, but these are usually smaller in nature. They cannot complete certain types of work, like some plumbing and electrical jobs that require additional licensing. Some jobs also require a permit in addition to contractor licensing - the specifics of this can vary by cities and state.

When do I need to hire a contractor instead of a handyman?

Ask your handyman if he or she has the specific licenses and can pull any permits necessary to complete the job. Hire a separate contractor if not. A contractor, not a handyman, usually completes jobs that include:

  • Structural work.
  • Electrical work or repair.
  • Additions and remodeling.
  • Gas line repair or installation.
  • New plumbing or modifications.

How do I hire a handyman?

First, evaluate the work you need done. If a handyman can complete the project, begin your online research to find a pro near you. Get at least three bids and ask the perspective pros the following questions:

  • What is your hourly rate?
  • Do you have insurance?
  • How long will the project take?
  • Do you have experience working on a project like this?
  • Do you have references I can call?
