How to Find a Good Handyman

A handyman is a person with a wide range of skills making various household repairs. Here are some tips for finding a reliable handyman.

  • First, make a list of the home repairs you need. Ask your relatives, friends and neighbors if they can recommend anyone to complete your projects.
  • Check sites like Angie’s List and local message boards for a list of handymen in your area.
  • Ask someone at your local hardware store for a referral.
  • Interview at least 3 prospective handymen and ask each of them for a list of references.

A good handyman will perform high-quality work at a reasonable fee, with most usually charging by the hour, at an average rate of $45 to $50 per hour. A handyman is normally paid for the number of hours they work unless you agree up front to a flat rate.

In most states, a handyman does not have to be licensed but they should carry some type of liability insurance.
