Mark was great. He replaced the original light fixture on a house that's almost 100 years old. The work was challenging with old electric wiring. The new chandelier looks great. His price was very fair. I already have other jobs in mind for him. I highly recommend.

Zack actually replaced my sump pump. I contacted him and he gave me a quote over the internet (which he would stand behind) but I told him I prefer that he come and look at what I had just to alleviate any surprises. He was happy to do so. He arrived on time and was very knowledgeable personable, kind, and considerate of my work schedule and provided me with more than just one option to do the job. He quoted me a fair price to do the job that I wanted him to do and his price included the sump pump with water pressure backup, new piping, all parts and his labor. The sump pump that he used was one of the best in the line of sump pumps on the market which gave me a great feeling to know that he was using quality products. Zack arrived today to do the job. He was on time and his warm and caring personality were right there with him. He finished the job in about 2 hours and he took the old sump pump and all its belongings with him to discard. He made it a point to explain the operation of the new water pressure backup sump pump so that I understood this new system. He left the area clean and tidy. I asked him if I could contact him again as my "go to guy" for plumbing issues and he smiled and said "of course"....This guy knows his stuff and his work is better than the best. An honest young guy earning a living and caring about his work and the people he services. He's a keeper...Hire Zack

Mark fixed a leak in a bathroom sink, cleaned out four bathroom pvc pipes, and installed a new Moen kitchen faucet...and only charged $40.00. He charges no service call fee. We have him scheduled to do plumbing work in our other home. We are very pleased with his work, his pricing, and his friendly way.

    We just bought a house in Woodbine, NJ and needed to have a plumber do extensive work. We contacted Geoff Evans and he immediately made an appointment to see what needed to be done. He was very punctual and gave us an estimate of all that needed to be fixed. He came. back the next day with all the materials and within a few hours all my plumbing problems were fixed. We highly recommend Geoff Evans to anyone who has plumbing work to be done.

    The work that Mr. Ison has done for our companies has been outstanding. He has a great personality and is very professional with all the tenant's and their issues. He is well spoken and helps everyone to understand the plumbing issue they may have by explaining it in a way that simplifies the terms of the job at hand. I must say that we noticed he does not have to go back to the house for the same problem as the plumbers in the past may have. He is also very good at being on time, leaving a notice if no one is home and returning to the home after he hears from the tenants. He also very prompt to respond to the phone calls from the office about a work order and great at calling the tenant to schedule the time and calling back after the job is done to check on the tenants! I also have noticed the employees that he has at this time have been mirroring his ethics. He is also very fair on the price of each job as well! I feel a business like his is hard to come by and I would recommend him to everyone I know!

    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.
