We had a big plumbing issue where the pipe going out to the the sewer was just completely blocked off. Since we recently bought the property, we believe there was probably no maintenance done by the previous owner in a long time. It was a rather expensive call since the pipe that connects to the city sewer was covered in roots. Drains Inc. came out and took care of the problem the very next day from when we contacted them and we are very satisfied with the service. I would definitely recommend them to anyone having plumbing issues.

He replaced my hideous light fixture with a nice new one I bought on Amazon. He went the extra mile when I needed the cord shortened. I don’t see many reviews for him doing electrical, so FYI: he does electrical too!

Tim was upfront in setting my expectations right from the start. He clearly explained what would have to be done. He answered all my questions. He fixed my plumbing problem it the time he anticipated. He was very pleasant and personable. Big PLUS... his "Free Estimate" is actually free.. no hidden charges. If necessary I will call him in the future and will definitely recommend him to friends.

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!

Brad is an extremely knowledgeable professional. I contacted him about installing a garbage disposal with electric. He gave me more than enough advice to help me make a decision on proceeding with this job. In the end, I decided to not do the installation because of the complexities- but thanks to Brad will deal with less headaches. I plan to reach out to him for all my plumbing needs!

The experience started with Brady being right on time, and just got better from there. He knew exactly what had to be done, completed the repairs in a timely manner, and at a very fair price. He doesn't change you $100 just to walk in your front door, like many bigger companies do. And he did both plumbing and electrical repairs while he was here. He will be my "go to" guy for all my future plumbing and electrical needs.

I don't know where to start. Upon first call they were so extremely helpful discussing the repairs that I needed. They came out extremely quick and we're the most friendly people that I have dealt with. The work they did was one of the best quality I have ever seen. I needed plumbing work done some pipes replaced, and faucets replaced. I would highly recommend anybody who needs repairs or installation to reach out to them. They do quality work at an extremely competitive price. I will always go back to them for any work I need done. Thank you again for the great work!

Knows what he’s doing when it comes to plumbing. Knew what the problem was before removing the toilet and proved all my assumptions incorrect. Fixed my leak with the right part and was in and out in 30 minutes at a reasonable price. Would have liked a quote on the damage caused by the leak, but George sticks to what he does best.

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.

Hose and Steven came over to install the kitchen Faucet, sink and the garbage disposal. They did a very good job with it. There was an issue where the dishwasher drain was leaking and they came over next day morning to fix the problem. There were some instances where they had to run to Home depot to get some required plumbing parts.

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.

Todd was very easy to work with, communicated quickly and was able to complete job the next day. He quoted me a price and stuck to the estimate. Installed a new sink, faucet, disposal and shut off valve in kitchen all for a reasonable price. He was able to complete job in a few hours and that included a run to Home Depot to get the new shut off valve since ours was leaking and replaced it for a nominal fee which I appreciated. I will be using him again when the basement needs rodding and my tub caulk needs replaced. I would definitely recommend to friends bc his pricing was much more reasonable than some of the big name plumbing companies. Good plumbers are so hard to find so I'm glad I found him here on Thumbtack.

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.
