Absolutely terrific! Very responsive, timely, courteous and patient with our questions. Dennis arrived with all the right parts ready to go as promised late in the afternoon. He brought help and they stayed after dark to complete the hot water heater install. He even called back after the job was done to remind me to turn the breaker back on. Saved me from another cold shower! Can't say enough good things about DR Home Improvements. I will use them again for our next project. Their pricing was the better of 4 other bids. So much win I can't believe it!

John responded immediately during the holidays and came out within 1/2 hour to fix my hot water heater. He was extremely professional, honest and reasonable in pricing and fixed my Moen faucet as a bonus! I would highly recommend him for any home repair need and I will definitely use him for future projects.

Kent was very professional and got the job done quickly. We also had our hot water heater replace by him on the same day as well. His pricing is very reasonable and would recommend him to any one. The one thing he did forget to do tho was turn the breaker back on to power the hot water heater back on. So we were with out hot water for a night. As we didn't notice it till late at night. But all in all it was what we needed

Charles spent several hours on a few repairs that we needed for my mother's townhouse - replacing the hot water heater, removing a non-functioning water softener, replacing an upstairs bath tub cartridge, installing a new toilet. His charges were exactly what he quoted, very fair and some of the aspects of some of the work ended up involving more time than originally anticipated.

Jason did a great job replacing the hot and cold washer valves. He only replaced what was needed even though we thought a few angle valves might also need replacing. Jason showed up on time and Jason was very nice. We recommend Jason:)

I had a potential buyer for my home and during the inspection it was noted that the hot water heater had corrosion and was on an improper base. To make matters worse, it was a 75 gallon water heater; not always in stock. Michael Defrates put in a very reasonable bid and performed the work within 48 hours. He brought everything with him and even did a terrific clean up job. His work is top notch and I highly recommend him. The potential buyers signed the contract thanks to his fast work.

Carlos provided a re-piping (hot side) job for us. His estimate was very competitive, and there were no surprises with the cost. Actually, he found a rusty bolt on our hot water heater and replaced it at no charge along with a connector hose under a bathroom sink. The dishwasher hose was also found to be deteriorating. I purchased a new one and it was replaced at no additional charge. We have a tub that one company told us needed to be removed for an additional approximate cost of $1000! Carlos was able to remove and replace the tub's facing without causing damage saving us the additional cost. The re-piping is a messy task, and we are left with many holes in the walls to be repaired (which was explained to us); he provided us with a drywall repair person to help with that project. Carlos is connected with other professionals as well. He has high standards and doesn't settle for mediocrity. He and his two other workers were polite, considerate, and cleaned up as much as possible (considering we still have the drywall repairs). I would highly recommend Carlos for any plumbing project, and plan on using his expertise in the future. So glad we found him!

I had been without a water heater for a week and the new one could not be installed until I had someone out to rebuild the platform that the water heater sat on. It had become an emergency situation because I didn't know we were not going to be able to use the old platform the heater had been sitting on unitl Wednesday evening. I called Josh late on Wednesday night and he had someone out the next morning. They worked on it all day Thursday and were finished by 5pm. Josh sent George out to do the work and he did an awesome job! I was able to have my new water heater installed the following day. I highly recommend them!

I have used One Call Plumbing Services for about 8 years. They provide exceptional service, are technically knowledgeable and very professional. I have always had annual contracts which includes an annual inspection, access to 24/7 emergency services (which I have needed) and a discount on purchases. I trust their recommendations. Through One Call, I’ve had two toilets installed, drains repaired, shower repaired, and hot water heater replaced. I also learned about Bio One from them – an organic products used to keep my drains clean and running. It is a great product – without using harsh chemicals and I buy bottles with each annual check. I value that they are a locally owned business. I highly recommend them – I wouldn’t use any other plumbing service! Cyndi A

I discovered a leak in the hot water heater and posted on thumbtack about 1:30 PM. I chose to call West plumbing at 2:00 PM, Jim was here before 3:00 to inspect the heater. He checked to see if the heater was still under warranty and found it was still covered. He left to pick up new heater, returned and had to do some extra plumbing. All work was completed and the work area cleaned before 6:00 PM. I would recommend West Plumbing to everyone.

The company was very responsive and was able to send someone to help on a Sunday, when everyone else wanted me to wait until Monday to have my water heater fixed, which would have meant no hot water for the weekend. Gary really went above and beyond installing the water heater, configuring a difficult pipe connection without complaining or even discussing the problems as they came up. His expertise and experience was clear as he resolved every problem without skipping a beat. Gary was professional, so much more than competent, and cleared away everything after the job. I didn't lift a finger during or after the job. This is what customer service is supposed to be like. Well done.

Morgan was a pleasure to talk with on the phone - she quickly found a specialist in my area for the same day. Alex came within about an hour after I called him. Immediately cleared off the stuff that was damaged by water and set up dehumidifier, fan, and applied treatment. Came back on the third day to wrap everything up. The area was completely dry and ready for drywall repair. It was a pleasure working with Alex. I would definitely hire them again. The price was very reasonable.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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

Tankless water heaters usually cost more to install than traditional tanks, because many homes need to be retrofitted to accommodate the new system. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $150 and $1,200, and tankless natural gas water heaters retail between $200 and $1,300 on average. The lower prices ($150-$250) are generally for point-of-use tankless heaters that can be installed to boost hot water in high-demand areas such as the bathroom or kitchen sink. Tankless water heaters designed to heat whole homes usually start under $300 at the low end and go up to $1,400 or more. Pricing for whole-home varies with the heater’s technology and features. Nationally, standard water heater installation costs average $360-$780, but tankless water heater installation costs may range from $400 to $1,000, depending on the work needed. Some perks of tankless water heaters are that they have nearly double the life expectancy of traditional water heaters and are generally more cost-efficient. Homeowners may be able to save $100 or more per year on their utility bills with an Energy Star approved tankless heater, depending on how much hot water they use.

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

Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400 or more. Water heater repair costs will depend on the type of water heater you have (tankless, electric, natural gas, etc.), the source of the problem, the cost for new parts, and labor rates in your area. Common water heater issues include problems with the thermocouple, thermostat, heating element and leaks. Most standard electric water heaters have two thermostats and two elements. One example for the cost to replace a bad thermostat is $185 for parts and labor. Replacing both the thermostat and the heating element could cost approximately $150-$200. The thermocouple is a safety device that senses when the pilot light is burning and signals the gas valve to close if the pilot light goes out. If your thermocouple is bad or corroded, the average cost to clean and repair it could be between $350 and $400. If your water heater has started to leak, it is usually more cost-effective to invest in a new water heater than to repair it, unless you’re covered by a warranty.
