"Routine water heater swap - yeah right. What started out as thinking our water heater was broken, turned out to be a long overdue clogged sewer lateral. Worst case scenario. While I'm not that happy about the sewage overflow situation which could have been better mitigated (and we still need to beach the hell out of that room), the solutions and options offered by Ali were professional and spoke of his experience. To unclog the piping, snaking was attempted but failed, hydrojetting was attempted but failed (with a mess of sewage). Finally we got a camera down there to find a wall of something about 50 feet down from the mechanical room to a spot under the sidewalk. Digging 4 feet down, to find actually a pretty good condition clay lateral. Ali's man Valentino (a skilled gentleman), cut the clay and replaced it with a riser in order to install a cleanout for future maintenance. Once done, they hydrojetted for another hour to clear 7-8 months worth of waste. The camera was once again sent through to find that a portion of the clay lateral had shifted and created uneven surfaces including some penetration of tree roots. While most plumbers would probably recommending an immediate replacement, Ali recommended that since it wasn't fully collapsed, we should simply clear out the lateral as routine maintenance rather than spend all the money to replace the pipe. I appreciate his direct communication, no sales pitch, and brief coaching through the process. While I do have 10 yrs of construction experience, and his price was not the cheapest, he certainly delivered on time and without any sense of price gouging."

Harris Water Heaters

This is a top notch water heater repair company. The technician JAKE tried to do a repair first because I explained I’m on a budget. He then realized that the water heater was beyond repair and explained to me the hazards, broke down the costs, and the importance of permits. He was very knowledgeable and patient and completed the work on time and cleaned up. They have a 1 year work warranty and the materials are better than what you find at Home Depot. Do not hesitate to use these guys!

I hired Stephen to add a gas valve for a dryer install. Stephen was exceptionally responsive (answering my questions ahead of the appointment & keeping me updated on his ETA) and once on the job he was a real professional. I had just moved into a new house and needed a few other things looked at and he was very accommodating and fair on price. I'd highly recommend Stephen!

Their tech Derrick fixed the heater at my house in Daly City. They were willing to accommodate my busy schedule. The cost was reasonable and Derrick was knowledgeable and extremely friendly. He quickly figured out that the problem was a blown transformer in my heater caused by a problem with the inducer. I'll definitely call them again if I need an appliance fixed.

I am a first time user of Thumbtack, and was so pleased to have a response to my request within minutes. After talking on the phone with Ronaldo to discuss the job, I hired him to replace a water heater at my parents' home. Once he got to their home, he determined that the water heater I had chosen would not have worked in their space, but I got great advice from this expert, who recommended one that would work in the space and with their particular needs. My elderly parents were very happy with him and his work. He maintained contact with me through out the job by text,, allowing me to feel confident that everything was going well with the water heater and my parents. The job was done efficiently and professionally. I will definitely use Thumbtack again, and recommend both Thumbtack and Ronaldo.
