What Does It Cost to Hire a Handyman Company in Toronto?

When you hire John the Handyman, you’re getting fast, efficient, and professional service at an affordable price. We understand that you are an honest homeowner and/or business owner. We’re not here to price gouge or bleed your bank balance dry.

We’ll give you the best estimates for handyman services in Toronto, ensuring you don’t spend a penny more than you need to on your home maintenance and repairs (to get amazing quality work).

If you search for handyman pricing in Toronto, you’ll find that the average handyman charges between $75 to $125 per hour. If you have an extensive job, we’ll adjust our rates to make it more affordable for you to manage the costs of maintenance and repairs on your home, office, or commercial building.


Hourly rates Vs. Flat Rates

Our rates depend on the type of job, and we charge hourly for small fixes. Our labour cost doesn’t include the spare parts and materials required to complete the job. However, we have a network of supplier partners, and we can source you whatever you need at discount (great) prices.

If you need us to tackle a big job, we’ll negotiate a flat rate that you can afford. Our flat-rate pricing model describes all the items required for the completion of the work. As a result, there are no surprises when the invoice arrives.

Minimum Service Fees

Some handymen require you to pay a minimum service fee to cover the costs of the job. Typically, this fee costs you between $50-125, depending on the work required. This minimum fee covers us if we arrive at your premises to find that the job only takes us 15-minutes.

Project Complexity

Our estimate on the job depends on the amount of work required. We’ll provide you with an initial estimate over the phone after getting the required information from you. However, it’s only an estimate. We’ll need to see the job before giving you an accurate quote on the work.

We find that the surface problem you’re calling us for might have an underlying cause for the issue. For instance, your toilets could have a blockage, and we’ll assume it’s a problem in the line. However, if we discover tree roots are penetrating your pipes, it’s going to cost extra to dig them up and replace the damaged section.


When we take your request for service, we’ll identify the tools and materials we need to complete the job, and we’ll bring them to the job site.

However, if you need us to source parts after inspecting the job, we’ll charge you an additional fee. Fortunately, we get a deep discount (and great prices) from our suppliers below what you would pay for the materials yourself at the hardware store.


What are the Costs of Toronto Home Repair Services?

Now that you know about the costs involved with hiring a handyman in Toronto, let’s look at the average cost for some of the general tasks we deal with every day. 

Our pricing varies depending on the job, but you can take the following prices as a guideline.


Mounting a TV

If you’re mounting your new TV to the wall, installation fees can range between $125 to $190, depending on the work. For instance, we can install your TV mount on your wall and clean up the mess. However, you might want to save some money on the job by painting the mounting area yourself.

As a result, the price for installing your TV could vary between $125 to $190

Drywall Repairs

If you need us to repair cracks in your drywall, pricing depends on the size of the surface and the extent of the cracking. Our Toronto home repair services will cost you between $125 to $275 on your drywall repair job.

Drywall Replacements

If your drywall sustains damage that’s beyond repair, we can replace it for you. We offer you the best service and pricing of any handyman company in Toronto.

Our drywall replacements cost between $200 to $425, depending on the work. The material costs and labour charges play a significant role in calculating your final quote.

Drywall Ceiling Repairs

We also offer drywall ceiling repairs for homes, offices, and commercial buildings. Depending on the size of the job, you could end up paying anywhere from $200 to $425. The final pricing on the job depends on the materials and labour required to complete the job.

Fixing Water Damage to Your Ceiling

If your ceiling is drywall and you need water damage repairs, the price of the job can vary between $200 to $500.

It’s challenging to assess the extent of the problem off-site, so we’ll need to check on the damage before giving you a final quote. It will be more expensive if we have to replace the ceiling boards than patch them up.

Caulking Interior Trim

John the Handyman charges between $125 to $350 for caulking interior trim. The size of the job plays the biggest role in calculating your estimate.

Typically, you can expect to pay between $125 to $350 for the job, with the average cost ranging between $2 to $4 per linear foot.

HVAC and Air Conditioner Repairs and Maintenance

If you need us to inspect and repair your HVAC system or air-conditioner, the price of the job depends on the work required to get the system running efficiently. HVAC systems may need the ducts to be cleaned, and it’s challenging to estimate the length of your ducting before we arrive on-site.

We also work with repairs to air-con systems and gassing the unit, with the average costs being between $145 to $280 to repair a window-box air-con system. The cost of the job will vary depending on the parts required and labour.

Garbage Disposal Installations and Repairs

Our Toronto home repair services also install, repair, and maintain garbage disposals. The average installation costs will be between $125 to $275, depending on the placement of the disposal and the work required to get it operational.

If there is extensive electrical or plumbing work required, you may have additional costs relating to your installation. We also maintain garbage disposals, clearing blockages and resolving electrical issues with the device.


What are the Factors Determining the Costs of Handyman Services in Toronto?

The costs of hiring a handyman in Toronto vary depending on several factors. Here are the variables that determine the final price of the job.

Why You Need a Capable and Reliable Handyman as a Landlord in Toronto

Being a landlord can be a very stressful occupation. First and foremost, you need to manage the properties that you rent out. This management means monitoring your tenants, collecting rent, and making sure everything is in order. To be a landlord, you need a functioning property that people will want to live in. A property that is broken down and requires repair and maintenance every week is going to be a poor rental option. It is especially important in Toronto, where the property market is booming.

To combat this, Landlords need a dedicated landlord handyman to assist them. Landlords form great partnerships with their handymen. Many landlords are dependant on their handyman to keep their rental property working at its best and without issues. It helps keep tenants happy and increases their chances of staying longer. A landlord needs their handyman to perform maintenance, repair, and installation services in their property. Furthermore, they need them to be able to provide assistance quickly as time wasted is often profits lost in the rental industry.

Why a Top Toronto Handyman is A Necessity For Savvy Landlords

Think of your own home. No matter how high-quality and durable it is, things are bound to go wrong sooner or later. It can be something minor like a leaky pipe or something significant like a broken door. The bottom line is that every property needs repair and maintenance at some point. Now, imagine that but for every property that you may own as a landlord. In your own home, you may be able to perform simple repairs on simple things. However, in your rental properties, you do not have any control over what your tenants do while you are not there. Furthermore, you can not expect to go to each property every time there is an issue and solve it yourself.

Landlords can call a handyman (or handyman service) to go in their place and assess the situation. They will perform timely repairs on whatever may need it. Handymen can even do maintenance to keep things from breaking down in the first place. Their utility and availability are just too good to pass up. The services they perform are skilled labor that not just anyone can do. If done by someone who is not trained, they could end up making matters worse.

Handymen also perform upgrades on rental properties to make them better. This upgrade also subsequently increases the value of your property. Performing upgrades on a home is not exactly something that the average person can do. It takes an informed and experienced professional to do it properly. If you have ever had work done by someone not capable in your own home, you would understand the value that having an expert brings.

Timely Service

A handyman service company can have a handyman at your rental property within the day to fix the issue that has presented itself. You have to call your preferred handyman service, and they will send someone your way as soon as possible. If you inform them beforehand, they will come equipped to perform repairs on that issue to have it hopefully fixed during their visit.

High-Quality Service

As previously mentioned, handymen are trained and experienced when it comes to home repairs, maintenance, and installation. There is no one better equipped to perform work on your rental property than an experienced handyman. A top Toronto handyman service company like ours puts good service as its utmost priority for landlords.

Work Guarantee

A Toronto handyman service company like ours will provide you with a service guarantee. This guarantee means that you are assured of getting the quality of service that you purchased. If a handyman were to mess up or perform poorly, the service company would take it amongst itself to fix the issue and give you the service you need.

Continuous Support

Landlords form a dependency on their handymen to keep their properties working smoothly. As such, a handyman service provider in Toronto will provide you with continuous support and maintenance if you avail of their maintenance plans. In addition, they can perform routine checks on your properties to make sure everything stays for longer.

Get a Handyman for Your Property

If you do not already have a handyman to maintain and repair your rental property, you are asking for stress and troubles in the future. Have a handyman perform a check on the property and assess if anything needs work. Form a relationship with a handyman service provider in Toronto, and it can make your life that much easier as a landlord.

Reliable Family Handyman in Toronto

You’ve been dreaming of a new home for so long, and now it’s finally happening – you have found one! The location is perfect, the layout is just what you always wanted, and there are no major structural issues. Still, there are plenty of things that need to be done around the house before you can move in.

You’re picturing yourself going on DIY projects after work or spending your weekends tackling everything from painting walls to digging a garden. It seems like a lot, but you’re determined to do everything by yourself; why should you hire professionals for this?

You’ve seen all those shows on TV where people manage to fix up their homes with ease thanks to some basic tools and maybe an instruction guide or two, right? Why shouldn’t you be able to do the same?

TROUBLE IN PARADISE: you don’t have a clue about how to proceed and if you can even afford all of this. Massive DIY projects sound like a huge risk; while your plan may be good, you know nothing about how to carry them out.

Maintenance or renovation? You need help making an informed decision

The trouble with DIY projects is that they’re not always as straightforward as they look on TV. If you’ve never done anything like it before, your first renovation project may end up taking months instead of weeks and costing way more than planned.

The staggering cost of renovating Toronto homes is one of the main reasons you may need a professional handyman – which offer services for homeowners who want to avoid costly mistakes and want to fix up their home in a way that gets the job done in a timely manner, for a price they know is fair.

Are you going to have years of experience in home renovations after just one project?

No, probably not. The more experienced homeowners are with DIY projects, the better they get at estimating costs and knowing when something can be done on their own or needs professional help. A GOOD (HANDYMAN COMPANY) HANDYMAN IN TORONTO WILL ONLY TAKE ON PROJECTS HE’S CONFIDENT HE CAN COMPLETE WITHOUT RUNNING INTO TOO MANY ISSUES – THIS WAY, YOU DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME, EFFORT, AND MONEY ON AN ENDEAVOR THAT WON’T END WELL.

You need to figure out exactly what you intend to do before engaging any contractor or handyman for assistance, whether you’re planning to do the work yourself or hire someone for it. It’s not that you can’t change your mind after selecting a contractor; but, before choosing one out of the many available in Toronto, you need to make sure he can provide services according to your needs and for an appropriate fee.

THE RIGHT FAMILY HANDYMAN WILL HELP WITH ANY INSTALLATION, REPAIR, OR MAINTENANCE JOB. You may be trying hard to save money by fixing up your home on your own but hiring professionals is sometimes better if you think about it – they have years of (and tons of in-field) experience under their belt, so they know how to do things quickly and properly without wasting time or materials.

In some cases, DIY projects cost more than having professionals take care of them from start to finish though you pay for the convenience of completing them yourself.

When it comes to renovations, upgrades, and other big-scale projects, you should never take shortcuts or try to save money by doing the work on your own if you lack experience in this area. A SERIOUS RENOVATION REQUIRES A LOT OF TIME AND EFFORT AND A GREAT DEAL OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE AND HOW.

You may end up wasting a lot of money by not hiring professionals who can do certain things properly from start to finish. For example, choosing the wrong paint color can make an otherwise beautifully renovated bathroom look tacky instead of sleek; imagine having to redo everything because you made some rookie mistakes along the way!

If you decide that DIY is more cost-effective than hiring a contractor, you can still save money by choosing the right materials and doing as much of the work yourself as possible. That way, your final costs will be lower since professionals won’t need to purchase or rent expensive equipment for certain tasks.


If you have the skills necessary to do an excellent job at maintaining and repairing your home in Toronto on your own, go ahead and save money by doing it yourself. But if you lack experience with DIY projects or simply don’t have time for this sort of work, hire family handymen or professional contractors to help out instead -it’s worth every penny spent.

Lucky for you, we’re here to provide you with the best handyman company in Toronto. You can expect reliable, prompt, and professional service, with prices you can afford (and that will make you smile and feel great).

John the Handyman – FAQs

Q: What's the difference between a handyman and a contractor?

A: A handyman doesn’t require any licenses to operate their business. However, many of them (especially with larger companies such as John the Handyman) have licenses to qualify for larger projects. Handymen can assist you with smaller tasks around the home, but they also can help with larger projects like laying a patio or building a deck.

A contractor specializes in large projects. They don’t handle odd jobs around your home or office, and they typically charge more for their services. Contractors are suitable for tasks like renovating a house to flip it for sale.

An easy way for you to figure out if you need a handyman or contractor is to estimate the time required to complete the job. If you think the job will require several people working on it for a few days, then a contractor might be the better choice.

However, if you think it’s suitable for one or two people to handle, and the job costs aren’t going to be that expensive, call John the Handyman for assistance.

If you think the job will cost more than $750, it might be a good idea to explore your contractor options. When you call John the Handyman, we’ll assess the size of the job and tell you if we’re the right guy (people) for the work. If we think you need a contractor, we’ll make a recommendation on companies we trust.

If your project requires any of the following, it’s better to hire a contractor for the job.

  • Installing new plumbing or home electricity networks.
  • Replacing main sewer lines in your home.
  • Any HVAC work beyond general maintenance and servicing.
  • Major home and office remodelling.
  • Any structural work you need on your home or building.

Q: Does my local handyman need a license to operate in Toronto?

A: A local handyman doesn’t need a license to operate in Toronto. However, the homeowner, landlord, or business owner may require permits from the city municipality for certain work. When you contact us to book your appointment, we’ll let you know if you need to acquire any permits or licenses for the job.

Q: What projects and jobs are suitable for a handyman?

A: John the Handyman is a “jack-of-all-trades.” We specialize in a wide variety of handyman services in Toronto, including basic tasks like hanging cabinets, repairing drywall, and general home or commercial property maintenance.

Q: What's the difference between refacing and refinishing?

A: Refacing may involve tasks like replacing your front door or the handles on cabinets to improve the visual aesthetic.

Both options offer you a fantastic way of improving the look of your home while raising your property value.
