Dave is more than outstanding. Not only is he professional, he can also think on this feet to resolve a very difficult door issues that we had for a long time. We live in a high end home and had 2 contractors work on the problem Each improved the situation slightly but the cause of the problem was never truly understood until Dave came along. One reputable door company even tried to sell me a new door. Initially, I was extremely wary of using someone from Thumbtack as there was no way to check credentials and bona fide references. Dave has certainly surprised us on the upside. He is cost conscious for his clients and does not recommend a more expensive solution if a cheaper one can be had. I watched Dave work the entire 2 hours he was here. He spent a great deal of time troubleshooting and then came up with a game plan that we both agreed would be ideal. He's a hard worker and an intelligent one at that. In the future, I will call on Dave to do maintenance work on our home without the slightest reservation. Ting P.

He bid $125 to clear the drain of a light well. Came within the half hour arranged arrival window. Swept clean the roof area. Found after the water initially drained that water backed up again. Determined that there was another clog underground near the sewer connection. Since there was no cleanout at the ground level and drain pipes were corroded (I had patched holes with plumbers putty and duct tape) He replaced the pipes for another $250 plus parts. This involved cutting away some cross beams to pull the pips out. Only minor complaint I noticed the next day that was that he didn't close tight the faucet to get water for testing the drain so there was a slow drip.

Oscar was about figure out that the water leaking through the ceiling of my stairwell was caused by water getting onto the bathroom floor rather than any problem with the shower drain or the sealing inside the shower itself. He did great work with his cameras and inspection tools to eliminate possible causes and avoid a drain replacement scenario, which would have been a costly job.

Ray was extremely professional. He explained the work that he did and how I could better take care of my drain. For example, Ray said pouring grease, among other things, down the garbage disposal is not a good idea. Ray cleaned up after himself and left my sink and pipes in great working order. I recommend Ray wholeheartedly and will use him again should a plumbing issue arise.

Marytnn was excellent. He phoned and we were able to deduce the issue and come to a very reasonable quote. He came the same day (and earlier than expected) and got the job done. If you have little people in your house that like to drop things down the drain, definitely give Martynn Plumbing and Drain Cleaning a call!

I've literally communicated with or contacted at least five contractors over the past two months to complete this flooring job. Salinas was an answer to prayer! Whereas other sites or contractors told me to wait and/or never got back to me or took others jobs, Vyron responded promptly within an hour when I posted the job on Thumbtack. Vyron and Pablo did excellent work putting down a new subfloor and plywood, then installing an LVP (see photos) and a new toilet (not pictured). Vyron communicated about every step of repair and installation and about every purchase for the job. He takes pride in his work and left the work area clean. I'm so glad that the job is finished and that it was done well.

I had a clogged shower drain and Max sent two of his plumbers (Chris and Corey) the next business day to fix it. They were professional and courteous. Unfortunately, the issue was more severe than expected, but Chris found a workaround that will hopefully be less expensive. Some follow up work still needs to be done, but I'm hopeful that it won't be too involved.

Noel is such a professional. He was recommended to us by our neighbor when we had a fencing need. We have used his services twice so far. The first time to helped us re-support a leaning fence. The second time, another fence was so rotted from all the water collected in the beam that we needed to have to replaced. He did an excellent job and even suggested that if we wanted to have more wear from the fence that he could put some cement support around all the existing posts so that it would last longer. That will save us money in the long run and I knew that he wasn't all about making the most money but he was about keeping my best interest and dollar in mind.

I needed to install a drain pipe for my washer, a water line from my sink to the fridge, and an air gap for the dishwasher. 3 things on my to-do list and Greg tackled all of them in a few hours! He had all the right tools and parts for each of the appliances, worked efficiently, and was incredibly polite. Highly recommend! I'll be using Greg for all of my plumbing needs.

Stephan is extremely detailed and does what needs to be done in order for the job to be right. Stephan went beyond the role of a plumber helping us bring up the massively heavy vanity with my husband and 2 other neighbors up our stairs and through our narrow hallway. In order for the vanity to be flushed against the way, he cut through our trim. He had to take our old sink and break it open to get parts. When he was done, he caulked the back. It looked beautiful. A few days later we noticed the sink's water would drain slowly. I texted Stephan and he was back at our house a day later with new pipes and a professional grade snake. Stephan is beyond capable of even the biggest projects and is all around a nice guy you trust.

Communication was great- they responded to our request very quickly and were able to come fast. However, our drain problem was in a multi-unit condo, and possibly beyond the scope of their equipment/capabilities. They used a 20 ft snake that ultimately got stuck in our system. We had to escalate to our building management, who brought out plumbers used to commercial properties and eventually resolved over a couple weeks. Not the plumber's fault, as they were not able to know the extend of our drain issues. 5 stars for communication and effort, 3 for incomplete resolution - so 4 star average.

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 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.
