Michael replaced an old water heater in my garage. He was very efficient and knows what he is doing. I liked his work, price, and communication skills. He is trustworthy, honest, and his price was affordable. I will hire him again when I need plumbing work done. A good guy.

I dealt with Steve Carruth, the father. He was absolutely AMAZING! We had a bid for $6000.00 for a water softener system. (From Eco-Water at Costco: BEWARE!). They had tested our water and told us we really must have a water softener system installed. We contacted Thumbtack to find a good plumber to get a competitive bid. Steve checked the water analysis tables for our address and our water is fine. He is SO HONEST that he told us we didn't need a water softener system. He could easily have bid, say $4000 for a system to make a buck, but he was HONEST and not greedy!!! His good character saved us $6k! He deserves a shout out for Sterling Human Kindness!!! One in a million or a billion! May he be flooded with great jobs!!

BJ was immediately ready to go.....let's do it now; we bought the water heater and began the work in less than two hours. Were there problems? The existing plumbing turned out to have significant issues which meant replacing defective PVC pipe with copper, as well as cold water inlet valve which had failed. After soldering new valve in place, it was found to be defective and was replaced with another. I was curious why he'd purchased two valves......he replied "experience". The water heater from hell was finally subdued at 9:00 pm, cleaned up and financially settled for a nominal amount compared to what the big companies would charge. BJ will take on a project and will persevere until completed. Good experience - would use again.

We had an emergency on a Saturday when we discovered our water heater leaking. Ken came out in about an hour and replaced the water heater. Great service. Ken had everything up and running in about 4 or 5 hours including getting the new water heater for us and giving us operational instructions.

Tony did a fantastic job to change water heaters. It's an apartment and it's a big project. He handled it very well, talked with city inspector, and knew exactly what's inspector expectation, and we passed the inspection one time. Although he was rush for payment(the same day as inspection), it's understandable. We like to give him a 5 star.

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. He responded so quickly and was at our house within hours and had our heater up and running again in minutes. I will definitely be sharing his name to anyone needing repair. Thank you so much.

Danny was exceptionally professional and approachable. Unlike experiences I have had in the past with other companies, he seemed trustworthy and honest. He took care to evaluate the problem (a leaking water heater drain valve) thoroughly and explained all of his findings and different options well. We did spend a bit more than we anticipated because of another problem discovered, which was the only challenge as a novice to the plumbing world. So happy to have found Oak Plumbing and Danny and would definitely contact the, again for future plumbing needs!

Steve's response and arrival time was excellent. He was honest, knowledgeable, very helpful and very diligent as he worked on our problem. He did a very thoughtful job and it looks like he took care of our water leak. So far the problem seems to be corrected. I would most certainly hire Steve again.

I could give fewer stars because I paid double the initial estimate. But the additional cost was due to upgrades required to bring the installation up to current UPC. He replaced an almost 50-year-old gas water heater in the basement of a 95-yr-old house. Jeff is knowledgeable about the code, and commited to doing the job right. His communication regarding status of job was impeccable. I would recommend him without reservation.

What can I say, he showed up he told how much it was, and he even charged me what he said from the beginning. After all was said and done I couldn't even tell if he did any work(aside of the new water heater). He left no mess. A strait forward no B.S. kinda guy. I'd definitely call him again. He just gets stuff done compared to the other companies that just beat around the Bush with prices.

Kasey hit on all the important things you look for in a professional. He came on time, gave me a fair bid and even did the work immediately which helped us tremendously not slow down a larger project. I highly recommend him and plan on having him back to install a continuous hot water system. Thx Kasey!

Our water heater started leaking and the input valve wasn't working properly so we had to shut down water to the whole house. With 2 toddlers that's not an amazing situation to be in. I put my request here at 10am, they were at my house in the afternoon for a quote. They helped us figure out whether we should go for gas or electric, tank or tankless, and by 6pm we had hot water in the house again. They were also super nice both on the phone and in person. The price quoted was a few hundreds under what others quoted for the same equipment and work.

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.
