Turned out to be a much harder than anticipated sink replacement. New sink was 1" deeper and impacted the fit, as well as the plumbing. Ron made a couple of trips to the hardware store for parts and figured out a great solution to pull everything together. Will definitely hire him again!

After my very unfortunate experience with Ludwig Plumbing out of Lake in the Hills who could not complete this job in 5 weeks and never returned any of my calls, I was very pleased with JDM. Dave came out the same day and completed the work very quickly. He was polite, knowledgeable and good and I highly recommend him for almost any kind of handy man service as well as plumbing.

Chris came out to diagnosis our plumbing problem right away. He then ordered the part and returned to fix it when he said he would. That's the key words...'returned to fix it when he said he would.' Too often contractors make promises and then don't deliver. Chris was not only timely he was always friendly and easy to work with. We will definitely hire Chris again for future plumbing issues.

I hired Chris to install an AO Smith Power Vent 50 gallon water heater. Chris arrived at our scheduled time and assisted with wheeling the water heater to my basement. After determining and collecting the neccesary plumbing parts. Chris completed the install perfectly in a timely proffesional manner and even hauled off the old heater. Very resonable price for a job well don. I plan on using Chris for any future house repairs and remodeling services. Highly Recommended.

I used Drain Brother for two separate plumbing emergencies. They were very fast with a response to my problems, and had them solved in no time at all. Terrific pricing, far better than the competition. I would highly recommend the professionals at Drain Brothers!

I am so lucky to have found TCN Cabinets and Design. The faucet on my soaker tub was leaking and the tub had no access to the plumbing. Called several places for help, but Tom had the solution. His crew replaced 3 sink faucets, repaired my damaged counter top and made an access panel in my tub, replaced the faucet and added a sprayer. Quality work at A reasonable price, a company that you can trust. Denise G. Algonquin

Everything about Wayne and this project was perfect. Response was quick, price quoted was very competitive, arrived on time (actually early), saw the plumbing issues and went right to work. Great at what he does and didn’t leave until he was sure everything was perfect. I recommend Wayne and will use him again if any other plumbing issues come up.

Allen from Construction 360 provided great workmanship and timely completion of laying our porcelain tile floor in our foyer, hallway, dining room and kitchen. He addressed issues like un-level areas of our floor when required and was always up front on material requirements, costs, and schedule. This is the second project they have done for us, the first being remodeling of our master bathroom and we have had nothing but a positive experience with Construction 360. Highly recommended.

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.

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 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.

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.
