I had Brian replace a toilet shut off, add a house shut off valve, fix leaks and 2 leaky faucets. He also re-routed my pressure release on a water heater. Brian seems very knowledgeable and honest. One of the nozzles went bad after a day and Brian promptly returned and replaced it with no questions asked.

Reason for the repair: Rain water leaking around the chimney and water damage to the chimney corner posts and roof sheathing. The following work has been performed by BP Construction: 1. Chimney and roof sheathing inspection. 2. Installation of ice and water shield and metal flashing around the chimney. 3. Installation of new PVC trim over the corner posts and around the top of the chimney. 4. Replacement of damaged chimney and roof sheathing. Prior to the repair the scope of the necessary work was described to me in detail. The work has been performed by BP Construction professionally, efficiently and according to the written specification and estimate. As the customer, I am very satisfied with the quality of the repair. Photos of the chimney before and after the repair are attached to this review.

Mr. Smith helped me out on a few things such installing walls and repairing some water damaged joists in the floor. He put in two different door systems for me and remodeled a new closet for my niece. He was very good and thorough when getting these things done. He made some suggestions which I didn't see when planning this project out, these suggestions made the project really take shape. A really competent professional who exceeded my expectations. His price was great and his work ethic was incredible. I recommend him to any one who has got a project going on and wants it done right. I will use his services in the future. Madison remodeling does quality work and Mr. Smith lives up to his work from start to end.

Haven’t hired anybody yet to replace my hot water tank yet, but I wanted to give an initial review from my experience with the guys that came out to give me an estimate. The estimate came in under my other estimates and Jason was very professional. He answered all my questions and didn’t make me feel like I was wasting his time asking them. Even if I go with a different approach to the tank, I would definitely consider J Henry and do business with them in the future. Thanks guys!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

When is it time to replace a water heater?

Although regular water heater maintenance and water heater repair may extend the life of your hot water heater, it won’t last forever. Most water heaters have a life expectancy of about 10 years. Many water heaters need to be replaced when they’re 8-12 years old — that’s when they start to show signs of fatal wear, such as leaking around the base of the tank. A water heater should be replaced when it fails to sufficiently heat water for the home; if your heater is operating erratically, check first for a blown fuse or a tripped breaker to make sure an electrical issue isn’t causing the problem. Another time to replace a water heater is when you want to upgrade to either a larger model or a more energy-efficient one.

How long is a water heater supposed to last?

Your water heater is an essential part of your home, heating water for showers, dishwashing, laundry and more. On average, a traditional water heater will last 8-12 years. The general consensus is that it’s better to replace your water heater with a new one than to repair one that’s 10 years old or more. Older models are less energy-efficient and thus more costly to run than newer models with better technology. Here are some indicators of when it may be time to replace an old water heater instead of repairing it:

  • Leaks: If leaking is not caused by loose connections, the water may be seeping out through slight fractures in the metal of the tank that have formed over time.
  • Strange noises: Clanking, rumbling and other noises can mean that sediment has formed on the base of your tank, contributing to fissures leaks, and inefficiency.
  • Age: If it’s more than 10 years old, it’s probably time to replace.
  • Discolored or rusty water: Have a pro check it out; if the problem isn’t resolved by draining and cleaning, you’ll want to replace the heater.
  • Lack of hot water: Inconsistent heating and hot water supply that runs out too quickly likely means it’s time for a new unit.

How much does it cost to install a hot water heater?

You’ll know when it’s time to install a new water heater. Water heater installation costs average between $360 and $780 nationally, with rates increasing depending on the project. The total project cost will be higher when you include the cost of the heater itself. Select your new water heater based on the number of occupants in your home and the number of gallons of capacity you’ll need. Installation costs can vary based on the type of water heater you are removing and the type you are installing, any necessary repairs, regional cost of labor, and whether disposal of the old heater is included. Natural gas water heaters retail on average between $650 and $900 for standard models. Electric water heaters range between $300 and $700 for standard models. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $250 and $700 for standard models. Tankless gas water heaters retail on average between $200 and $1,300.

A company may charge approximately $1,000 to replace a 50-gallon tank-style electric water heater (not including any upgrades required by building codes). Replacing a gas-powered water heater might cost $1,100 (not including code upgrades). Some companies roll the disposal of an old heater into the overall cost of the new water heater installation. Other professionals charge an additional removal fee that can range from $35 to $150.

Who can fix a water heater?

When a water heater stops running effectively, it’s best to hire a water heater repair professional to troubleshoot the problem. Whether it’s a plumbing company that offers water heater repair services or a provider specializing in water heater repair and maintenance, most repair companies offer same-day service as well as weekend and after-hours emergency calls. Usually, water heater repair professionals are experts in both electric and gas systems, as well as tank and tankless heaters, and can repair any kind of unit.

Why is my hot water not working?

The most common complaint among homeowners is that their hot water isn’t working — and the water heater is generally the culprit. Typically, it isn’t making the water as hot as you’d like it to be. When the water isn’t hot enough — or isn’t hot at all — run through this troubleshooting checklist for basic water heater repair tasks:

  • Make sure the power is connected to the heater, then reset the thermostat.
  • If it’s a gas water heater, make sure the pilot light is lit.
  • Raise the temperature setting on the thermostat.

If these stops don’t lead to hot water, it’s time to either check the heating element in an electric water heater or the burner unit and gas control valve in a gas-powered heater. A water heater repair and maintenance company can handle these repair jobs. However, if your hot water heater is eight years or older, it may be time to replace the water heater instead of repairing it.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
