I needed a leaky kitchen faucet repaired. Bryan contacted me within an hour of my posting going live on Thumbtack and we arranged to meet the next day. He showed at the designated time, diagnosed the problem and attempted to repair the faucet. Unfortunately, the faucet was an off-brand and Bryan had to go to four different plumbing suppliers before he was able to locate the correct piece - not his fault. Bryan's original quote was $75 and he did not charge me anything additional for all the running around he had to do to locate the needed part. Highly recommend! And I will definitely call Bryan for any future projects.

Ted and Eddie were great to work with! My husband and I put our request on Thumbtack, not sure if anyone would be willing to help because it was a complicated door installation with HVAC concerns. Ted replied back to our request immediately, talked through our ideas and needs, and visited our house to go over options, such as timeline, costs, and door/hallway details. My husband and I felt at ease knowing Ted could help us out. Our request was a one to two-man project, and Ted brought his buddy, Eddie, who did a phenomenal job of installing the doors and building a doorway. Eddie's work was smooth and top notch.

This was actually two projects I engaged JB Construction in - one was replacing water damaged wood laminate, the other was a complete top-to-bottom bathroom remodel. It included changing out the bathtub, adding a vanity with 2 sinks instead of one, doing the tile work on walls and floor and smoothing out and painting knock-out wall finish. I have had many remodels done in my various homes and can safely say JB ranks at the top.Those gentlemen worked non-stop 7 days straight from early morning to night. Talk about stamina! As happens in remodeling, some inconsistencies in electrical and plumbing were uncovered that they expertly were able to address and complete to code. This is a team where you can have a great open dialogue and discuss a better and more cost effective option. On top of being very diligent and putting a lot of pride in his work, you will notice that Jay and Heath are genuinely good guys, with a great sense of humor and wonderful demeanor. I'm glad thumbtack helped me find them. The project turned out absolutely beautiful and I am thrilled with the results. I will use JBC again, no doubt.

EXCELLENT! Excellent response; excellent work; excellent and courteous plumber (Ryan). Although my issue turned out to be pretty simple, Ryan treated it as if it was a major project. He had the problem diagnosed and repaired in no time. The service call and work done was very reasonably priced. As soon as Ryan finished I asked for a business card before he had a chance to offer one. I am completely satisfied with the team and would, without hesitation, recommend Ryan and Jeff to my family/friends for their plumbing needs...I will not hesitate to contact them again when needed.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What are plumbers and what do they do?

Plumbers are skilled professionals who are trained to install and maintain pipes and systems for drinking water, sewage and drainage. They usually have trained through four- to five-year training programs, which include apprenticeships, via trade schools and community colleges. Plumbers’ areas of expertise typically go beyond pipes to include mathematics, blueprint reading, plumbing codes and water distribution. They handle plumbing emergencies, such as broken pipes or clogged drains, and install and maintain everything from a new piping system to a replacement faucet. Plumbers also know how to install bathtubs and showers, toilets, water heaters and dishwashers. Plumbers may work on residential or commercial sites, sometimes designing and laying out a pipe system during construction.

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.

Why is the water in my house not getting hot?

If the water in your house is not getting hot, it may be time for water heater repair. Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400, depending on the problem and materials. Competent homeowners may also be able to try DIY fixes, whether they have a traditional gas or electric water heater or a tankless gas or electric heater. Troubleshooting the different issues that can arise with each of the styles requires some knowledge of how they operate and what red flags to look out for. For a natural gas water heater, the first step is to check whether the pilot light has gone out. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s directions if you want to relight it yourself. If you smell gas, stop everything and call your gas company — the smell could signal a dangerous gas leak. If your household’s water is not getting hot enough, you can try increasing the temperature on the water heater’s front dial above the standard setting of 120 degrees; for safety, always turn off electricity to the unit before adjusting temperatures. If you keep running out of hot water, your household may simply need a higher-capacity water heater, so consider upgrading. Quick professional fixes include replacing the thermostat or heating elements and cleaning and repairing the thermocouple.

How do you find a good plumber?

Whether you need a plumber to perform drain repair, install a new fixture, or replace rusty pipes, you need to make sure you hire someone reliable who will finish your job on time and within budget. Start by asking the plumbers on your short list these questions:

  • What is the total cost? Make sure your estimate includes materials and labor. Find out whether the plumber will be providing the materials and whether you’re being charged an hourly rate (which is variable) or a flat fee.
  • Is removal and cleanup included in the job? Some plumbers leave behind old parts, while others include the cleanup in the cost.
  • Is the work guaranteed? Find out whether the work (as well as the parts or fixtures) are guaranteed under a warranty.
