I am a first time Thumbtack and Drains Inc. user and I was very satisfied all around. In addition to coming in with the lowest bid, they were very responsive and squeezed me in to fix my basement drain the following day. They even addressed my tenant's last minute request to clear their bathtub drain, though it was late in the day. In the end, the overall final cost was more than the original bid, but that's to be expected with an old building and old plumbing (and they explained everything along the way). The price was extremely fair considering the extra job they did upstairs. I will definitely use them again.

We had initially hired Salvo to fix a botched plumbing job. He was quick to respond to our Thumbtack request, and was also available to provide service soon. During that visit, he mentioned that he also does partial home remodeling - such as tiling, floors, bathrooms, etc. Salvo was very transparent in explaining that he only does the work he feels comfortable doing and has expertise in. We appreciated his honesty as we had recently been suffering through a string of contractors who promised competence, but instead left us with repeated disastrous outcomes. We invited Salvo back to our home to get estimates on 2 incomplete bathroom remodels, that required a lot of re-work due to how our previous contractor approached the project. Salvo gave us a reasonable quote for our project, and assured us that when he was working on our home, he would only be working on our home, so we wouldn't have to go chasing after him. Cut to the end of the bathroom remodel - everything looks fantastic. The tiles are expertly cut and laid, and fixtures are appropriately installed. Any rework that needed to happen, whether it be plumbing or concrete, was done cleanly and efficiently. Additionally, we asked Salvo to install a back splash, kitchen faucet, garbage disposal, and outdoor spigot for the hose. We would highly recommend Salvo for any job, and look forward to working with him in the future, as well. He was reliable, professional, personable, and punctual! He was cooperative in fixing odds and ends as we pointed them out, and he also took initiative to tell us what needed repair or what could be salvaged. He took occasional help from his wife and another family member, and they were all a pleasure to work with.

His service is always dependable and for the quality of the plumbing work, very affordable. He has come out at night and on the weekend to fix leaks and back ups whenever we needed him.

I needed to replace my old water heater that stopped heating my water. I put in a request and Mike responded within minutes with recommendations. He was really patient and professional when, after we realized we purchased the wrong new water heater, he helped us exchange it for the right one and took more time out of his busy day to stay and finish the job. I'll definitely be keeping him on call if I have any more plumbing issues in the future! And, his prices are very reasonable; no hidden or surprise fees. Mike is a great guy, an honest professional who's great to work with. Glad we chose his quote.

Tom and his employee from Affordable Handyman just moved my toilet plumbing over one foot in my bathroom including the waterline which cost $375. They did a great job. Tom is very punctual, clean and thorough. I would hire him again. He is not just a plumber but a general contractor so he can do do anything you need. I plan on hiring Affordable Handyman in the future.

Hands down best experience I’ve had on Thumbtack. If you’re looking for guys to do an unreal job and do it right the first time. These are your guys. Just moved back to Chicago bought a new place. And needed a new kitchen sink and disposal put in. I went out bought both and had them ready. Posted my add on here and they responded within the hour with a personal response and could do it the next morning on my schedule. They came out.... The sink was the wrong size for the lower cabinet but correct size for opening. They left and said to go out take my time. Return it. And to pick out one that will work for me that I’ll like. Gave me the measurements and suggested a few places. Great guys. Went out bought one brought it back. Texted the guys. They were at another job and once they finished, came back and stayed till 8pm to finish my job and make sure I had a working kitchen. And then on top of it all. Didn’t charge me a dime more than what they quoted me even though they had to come back a second time. I’m using these guys for new plumbing in my bathroom and to install the walk in shower along with new laminate floors for my whole place as well in a couple weeks. Gave me a quote that was perfect for my budget and I don’t want to look anywhere else. I trust these guys, (which doesn’t come easy for me) I’m prior service military, and couldn’t have felt more comfortable from meeting them with a smile and handshake. Even my dog laid on Salvos chest while he was installing the sink. And Salvo went one handed to do the work and pet my lab the whole time. Couldn’t be happier. Thanks gentleman. Can’t wait to see you guys soon.

Mike was great to work with on inspecting and repairing many items at a short sale investment home we bought. After sitting vacant for 2 years we expected a few issues, and Mike did a fantastic job diagnosing them, repairing what needed repairing, replacing others, and making sure everything is ready for us to hand over the keys to a new tenant or owner without worrying of any plumbing surprises. I will use him again!

Will and his team are very professional, polite and awesome. Believe me when I tell you that I looked around. I had a lot of questions and was very intimidated by this entire process - I was a nervous mess! To be honest, they made me down right comfortable about everything they were doing, and I was educated. I would recommend W Bragg Plumbing to anyone who needs their services. Thanks again, W Bragg Plumbing.

The team at B&B did an incredible job repairing a main water valve at our building. From first contact to coming out to inspect the issue and returning the next morning to resolve, Bill was incredibly polite, professional and completed the fix very quickly. He even fixed a plugged shower head in one of our units at no additional charge. Because of his fast work he prevented a major water event that would have cost thousands to remedy. I would highly recommend Bill and B&B and will use them for my future plumbing needs.

I contacted South Shire to change the plumbing under the sink in the kitchen of one of my rental properties, they were very professional in going at the requested time, meeting with my tenant, and offering an amazing job for a value I could not even get another handyman company to come look at the initial job.

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.
