I have seen everything from about $15/hour from a guy who really had no idea of why he was always living hand to mount, to over $150/hour by a guy with 40+ years as a general contractor who lost his wife and dog in an accident the week after he retired so decided to do handyman work to keep his hand in the trades, and has about 6 different types of contractor license.

Most charge at least $25-35/hour minimum, to probably a nationwide average more like $40-60/ hour, and on up to $75/hr in higher cost areas.

Plus materials and consumables, of course plus typically a 10-20% markup.
