"Lucas called right away. He explained he does a lot of screen work and is able to plenty of handy work too. He provided his own pictures of previous work on screens and other customer projects he has completed. He estimated our project same day. He worked around other contractors working on the windows and rebuilt every screen when the job grew in scope to keep my costs down by offering a very fair price. Communication was excellent and he worked through the weekend to hit our timelines. He took pride in his work and did it right. I would use him for any project!!"

"Hired David for a few small jobs around my condo, he was very responsive, picked up the materials for me, arrived on-time and was extremely professional while there. He charged a fair price for his time and the quality of work was excellent. He is at the top of my list for any future projects. Northern VA needs more handymen like David."

"I had a very favorable experience with PHI. I hired them to do a few handyman projects I needed in a hurry to get ready for Christmas. I had an estimate the first business day after making an inquiry. I needed the work done in less than a week (the week of Christmas) and the work was done on time and on budget at a fair price."

"Ossa did a great job once I was able to work with them. The â fixed priceâ handy man was a joke. I would not let your handy man service change a light bulb. The handyman wanted to use a 24oz hammer to force my aluminum door back into place. I told him to leave."

"Smitty was the first and only contractor to call me back on a Saturday morning. He arrived at my home and fixed my issue in the afternoon. Smitty was transparent in explaining what the problem was and he did an excellent job in fixing it. I will definitely call Smitty for future projects and I would recommend others to do the same."

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?
