Vince came out the next day when we had a dire need to repair the electricity to our sump pump. He ended up also installing a light above our basement steps, replacing our old lights with new ones, and correcting the wiring in our basement. Great value and a real pro! Thanks

I am very pleased to write a letter of recommendation for Thomas Plumbing. Dan is a very nice man, diligent in his work and very fair in pricing. He completed the project of installing a new hot water heater flawlessly. He is, without question, my new permanent plumber. I am available for telephone referrals of my experience.

Ken did a great job. He was running late and called to let us know. He spent several hours cleaning the basement. Unfortunately, there is still a smell in the basement, but this is due to having to close up the house without any ventilation. I am purchasing a dehumidifier for this purpose.

Ron responded quickly and installed a new gas water heater. Ron also took the time to teach me how to complete such a project on my own in the future. Quality work, responsive, and a very reasonable price. Thank you Ron.

I had a very complex and complicated leak involving my sprinkler system and other water system interactions that ran through the house and out into the yard. John responded to my Thumbtack reply within an hour and agreed to go on-site the same day. In my experience with plumbers in general in the area that is unheard of. My previous interactions with local plumbers in Downers Grove/Darien area was one where they "might" be able to get out there in a few days, and had instances where they just never showed up after they said they would. But not these guys - they were GREAT!!! John called me after hours from the property (I rent the house) and talked me through what his preliminary assessment was. He was ready to proceed the next day but we had some difficulty coordinating the tenant to be there. But John hung in there, directly coordinating over the next few days to arrange for access and to have the water turned off so the work could be done. In the end it turned out to be a very difficult resolution, but John and Do Right Rooter took all the steps necessary to resolve the problem. At the conclusion of the work he spent about 30 minutes on the phone with me explaining the scope of what was done. He volunteered to come back out in the spring before the sprinklers are turned back on to do a more thorough pressure test to ensure there are no other leaks in the systems' interactions. I could not ask for better service and can only recommend the best trades-men service I have had.

George is very professional, and he arrived 15 minutes earlier. He purchased a new water heater after he took a look of old one. And about 1 hour, he finished installation of new water heater. After one night, so far so good, hot water is there. I would use George again for my next project.

We had an emergency situation with our hot water heater that they resolved very quickly. They were prompt, knowledgeable, had great communication through the process of what turned out to be a very big job. They really took care of us. We immediately hired them to take care of a routine maintenance job as well. They were great.

Toby and Stephanie run a great ship here. My water heater went out and within an hour and a half we had negotiated the quote as well as the installation and take away. The price was reasonable and the service was top notch. Installation took about 2 hours in tight quarters and I couldn't be happier. This was all taken care of on a Saturday. The service was excellent, please spread the word as they provide top-notch service. Thank you so much!!

Mr. Jackson and crew, rescued a DIY project gone wrong. Needed a hot water tank installed, and he was able to do it the same day. He provided the bonus service of picking up the product that I purchased. He kept me informed as to his arrival time so that I was not waiting on him all day. Upon completion he made sure that everything was up to code, and that there were no gas, or carbon monoxide leaks, things I never considered when doing it myself. Will definitely use them for other projects.

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.

Chavez Heating replaced my water heater. They did all the needed upgrades, and best of all for a very reasonable price. Brian & Efrain are honest gentleman. It was a tight squeeze in the area they were working, but they removed my big, old heavy water heater & were very mindful not to destroy surrounding area when taking it out & replacing new water heater. They took their time and did a great job! They left the area clean and hauled away old water heater. Thanks guys! Would recommend to give these fellas a try. You'll be happy you did.

    I hired this company to redo plumbing in my bathroom that the previous owner had mickey moused in. the guy that came to my home was very considerate. He arrived right at the time they told he would. Cleaned his shoes and each piece of equipment he brought into the house to ensure that my home didnt get dirty. He explained each step of the process he was performing and answered every question i asked of him about code and regulation. He set up drop cloths so dust wouldnt go anywhere else in my home. after his work was done he vacuumed up everything and threw all the heavy stuff into the garbage for me. The man was quick effiecient and friendly. We have not had a drop of water leak from his connections he installed, the water presure in the bathroom is much better then it was prior, and there is no rattling of pipes when i turn on the shower head. the price i was quoted was extremly reasonanble and felt like i was robbing him for the job he performed.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      When is it time to replace a water heater?

      Although regular water heater maintenance and water heater repair may extend the life of your hot water heater, it won’t last forever. Most water heaters have a life expectancy of about 10 years. Many water heaters need to be replaced when they’re 8-12 years old — that’s when they start to show signs of fatal wear, such as leaking around the base of the tank. A water heater should be replaced when it fails to sufficiently heat water for the home; if your heater is operating erratically, check first for a blown fuse or a tripped breaker to make sure an electrical issue isn’t causing the problem. Another time to replace a water heater is when you want to upgrade to either a larger model or a more energy-efficient one.

      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.

      Who can fix a water heater?

      When a water heater stops running effectively, it’s best to hire a water heater repair professional to troubleshoot the problem. Whether it’s a plumbing company that offers water heater repair services or a provider specializing in water heater repair and maintenance, most repair companies offer same-day service as well as weekend and after-hours emergency calls. Usually, water heater repair professionals are experts in both electric and gas systems, as well as tank and tankless heaters, and can repair any kind of unit.

      Why is my hot water not working?

      The most common complaint among homeowners is that their hot water isn’t working — and the water heater is generally the culprit. Typically, it isn’t making the water as hot as you’d like it to be. When the water isn’t hot enough — or isn’t hot at all — run through this troubleshooting checklist for basic water heater repair tasks:

      • Make sure the power is connected to the heater, then reset the thermostat.
      • If it’s a gas water heater, make sure the pilot light is lit.
      • Raise the temperature setting on the thermostat.

      If these stops don’t lead to hot water, it’s time to either check the heating element in an electric water heater or the burner unit and gas control valve in a gas-powered heater. A water heater repair and maintenance company can handle these repair jobs. However, if your hot water heater is eight years or older, it may be time to replace the water heater instead of repairing it.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
