"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."

"Dom's Handyman Service repaired our fence (several sections fell) that was damaged by storm. The owner, Mr. DomPierre, provided detailed estimate, explained what to be done and delivered very good quality of work as he promised. He also did extra small fixes along the way which weren't included in the quote, to make sure the fence would stand against next storm. He and his crew worked hard on the day of the job, with only a brief and efficient lunch break. Toward the end, he also walked through to make sure everything was up to expectation. We are very pleased with his work. We will hire him again for future projects and will recommend him to other home owners."

"I found REO Service Pro while looking for a handyman. I needed someone to replace 2 outdoor security lights both of which were at least 24 feet high. zi made my inquiry with Gary Golman at first not realizing that REO was accustom to completing large scale complex remodeling jobs. Nonetheless, Gary worked with me on what I needed and sent Franz to do the work. Everything went smoothly and Franz did a great job taking down the old light fixtures and installing the new ones. After the lights were installed, Franz wanted to make sure they were aimed to my liking. Some minor adjustments were made but really, he had it right the first time. Well done Franz. Thank you Gary for the assistance. The best news is that I now know about REO!!"

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?
