We needed help with a clogged drain at our rental. It was over the holiday weekend. Kemal was willing to respond within a very short period of time. He was very professional. The rate was fair. We would be more than willing to recommend ProPluming for anyone who needs plumbing work.

Mike worked with us to find and replace our old sink for a new one. He did a great job from start to finish and actually took the time to give recommendations for both sink and faucet. He got the old heavy cast iron sink out with ease and made the modifications for the new sink to fit. I would highly recommend him for any plumbing project you have.

I called Roman with Aiugyst plumbing, he came out the same night and fixed the problem. I had a pipe leaking in the bathroom, he fixed it all in a few hours. When he was done he explained to me what he did, and how to prevent these leaks from happening again. The job was completed in a good timing and a great price! Will call again 100% satisfied

I needed new faucets and under sink plumbing changed in my bathroom and was told about the thumbtack app. I found the app so helpful and very excited that I found such an efficient and professional handyman as Bogdan! He responded right away and we set up a time for him come and evaluate the job for an estimate. I found the estimate to be very reasonable and when the job turned out to be more involved than anticipated, he never asked or expected a price adjustment. He did a great job and I've never had a handyman clean up as well as he did. I will be using him again for future jobs and would refer him to anyone!

We have a cottage to rent out that needed a bathroom remodel. Sam was very quick to respond to our request for quote. He came out and started work right away after the contract was accepted. Sam is not the cheapest contractor we've worked with, but he is very professional and doesn't waste time since he charges by the job. He gets the help he needs to get it done and is communicative throughout the project so that he could hit his target completion date. He shows up on time, which is not always the case when dealing with contractors. He encountered issues with how the plumbing was originally installed and instead of just leaving a potential problem, he quoted the fix separately. As work is completed, Sam gets the client to look at what is accomplished and makes sure it is accepted. I definitely would call Sam first with our next project.

A better plumbing company has been extremely helpful, thorough and dedicated to finishing a project at my grandmother's house. My grandmother's house is over 65 years old and had an array of plumbing problems that surfaced day after day as the guys were working. But they were committed to fixing it until everything ran properly. We were definitely blessed to find this company.

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!

Keith is an excellent handyman who can do just about everything you need up to and including project management. He takes great pride in his work, is always on time, and he is trustworthy. I had him do pretty much everything to get our rental ready for the market. Plumbing, tiling a bathroom, dry rot repair work, you name it he can do it! He went above and beyond and even helped me coordinate with granite installers while we were out of town. I would not hesitate to hire him again for any project and I recommend him heartily.

Matt gave me a fair quote upfront. He and his team arrived to the job on time and were well prepared to replace my toilets. He was in and out in less than an hour. Also, he gave me advise on how to address a leak that saved me money. Great folks to work with. I will be calling if I have future plumbing needs.

If there was a 10 star evaluation I would definitely give that I had 3 major jobs in my house that required cutting through stucco, electrical wirings, doors and windows to install, ceiling fans, new smoke alarms and some plumbing !!! Since city requirements have changed and house has to be conforming with the code Stephen gave an estimate for the jobs and it was unbelievably reasonable All jobs were done way faster than I thought they would take... Super clean work... Finally the inspection from the city came today everything was resolved in a timely manner I am even going for so many other jobs and projects after I saw the high quality work... If you need someone Honest and Professional, Stephen is your guy

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.  

Follow these additional tips for confidently hiring a plumber or other skilled professional.
