They sent out a plumber the day I called. He gave me an estimate and even though he needed to order parts, he was able to temporarily fix the leak and came back and got everything fixed the next day.

Pleasant, friendly, and helpful. Rates were very competitive with other local plumbers we had called last winter for a freeze up. We ended up paying a lot more to that company-- just waiting for 1 plumber to drive to town to get parts while his counterpart waited at the house doing nothing--so we were paying two hourly rates! My neighbor who's lived in Truckee for a long time suggested Greenside Plumbing aka Truckee Plumbing Services. John returned our call within a few minutes and managed to squeeze us in the same afternoon because he was working in Glenshire. His original estimates were accurate and actually came in at the low end because there was easy access to the leak, not always the case trying to get under the house with the amount of snow still on the ground. Will definitely use him again.

    Jack was fast, honest, and excellent at all of the work that he performed. Jack ensured that all work was done correctly and all paperwork and permit work was handled. I will be hiring Dr Plumber again!

    Having just moved to the area, I can't tell you how hard it is to find new "everything". New nail place, new whole foods grocery shopping...finding my new "go-to" places has been the hardest part of moving. Thank God I finally found a plumber I can trust! Brie is a delight to talk to when I need anything and if you need anything, ask for Robert! He's our guy! I've been so impressed with Straight Up! Plumbing. Give them a try - you'll see!!

      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.
