Wow such a loaded question. If you are talking about a real business person with insurance and such in this area at least 50 to 80 dollars an hour depending on what his level of expertise is. Between insurance costs, fuel and tool expenses I would not leave the house for less. Any decent home repair person could come home with more money than that working for someone else unless it is someone moonlighting for extra money with no insurance.

Contractor Don answered the insured, professional business side of the question.

Casual day labor and uninsured and possibly unlicensed handymen, if you want to go that route, commonly go for about $25-50/hour.
