I hired him to do some plumbing work, replacing some water shutoff valves because of some small leaks. I also talked to him about my water pressure being low in the kitchen. He removed the kitchen faucet and water lines and there was some buildup that was slowing the water pressure. John drove to Lowes during rush hour and bought a new kitchen faucet, shutoff valves and hoses and replaced them. My water has never had as much pressure as it does now. He went above and beyond and I couldn't be more pleased. Cost was a lot lower than what it would cost to get a plumber out. I will definitely hire him in the future. Great guy...... Thanks John

    Mr. Cambell is very professional,smart and reliable. Me and my family had a bad water leak from an old hot water heater and we gave Mr. Cambell a call to discuss our problem. We set a date for him to come by. He evaluated the problem and gave us a very reasonable price and a time frame of completion. He not only installed a new hot water heater, he also replaced the wet sheet rock and replaced the tile on the floor that was damaged due to the water. I will definitely be using Mr. Cambell services again. JOB WELL DONE!

    I am so happy with the service he provided. Not only did he drive 2 hours to my house, but he went above and beyond to install my dishwasher. I expected him to tell me I needed an electrician when we found out the dishwasher only worked when the disposal switch was on, but he managed to reroute the electric line and I am so grateful. In an old house that seems to need 5 different professionals to complete any one job, I am so glad he stuck it out and made sure the job got done right for me. I’m glad I trusted my gut and hired him. I don’t think someone closer to me would’ve provided the same level of service.

      Greg did numerous handyman items for me including installing a new front door, hanging a couple of ceiling fans, installing a new faucet, and installing a tile backsplash in my kitchen. He was very reasonable, had very good design suggestions, was on time for all his appointments, and finished the job on time. He is very professional and I would highly recommend him.

      Chris replaced the shower door and all the fixtures in my master bathroom (shower head and faucet, double sink faucets, and tub faucet and drain) and the sink faucet in my guest bathroom. He also replaced the light fixtures over the mirror. He did an excellent job, even returning to be sure that everything was working correctly. Chris was prompt and friendly, and he always called if he felt he would be delayed. I am very pleased with his workmanship and would highly recommend him to others! Thanks Chris!!!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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 much does it cost to fix a hot water heater?

      Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400 or more. Water heater repair costs will depend on the type of water heater you have (tankless, electric, natural gas, etc.), the source of the problem, the cost for new parts, and labor rates in your area. Common water heater issues include problems with the thermocouple, thermostat, heating element and leaks. Most standard electric water heaters have two thermostats and two elements. One example for the cost to replace a bad thermostat is $185 for parts and labor. Replacing both the thermostat and the heating element could cost approximately $150-$200. The thermocouple is a safety device that senses when the pilot light is burning and signals the gas valve to close if the pilot light goes out. If your thermocouple is bad or corroded, the average cost to clean and repair it could be between $350 and $400. If your water heater has started to leak, it is usually more cost-effective to invest in a new water heater than to repair it, unless you’re covered by a warranty.

      How much does it cost to install a tankless hot water heater?

      Tankless water heaters usually cost more to install than traditional tanks, because many homes need to be retrofitted to accommodate the new system. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $150 and $1,200, and tankless natural gas water heaters retail between $200 and $1,300 on average. The lower prices ($150-$250) are generally for point-of-use tankless heaters that can be installed to boost hot water in high-demand areas such as the bathroom or kitchen sink. Tankless water heaters designed to heat whole homes usually start under $300 at the low end and go up to $1,400 or more. Pricing for whole-home varies with the heater’s technology and features. Nationally, standard water heater installation costs average $360-$780, but tankless water heater installation costs may range from $400 to $1,000, depending on the work needed. Some perks of tankless water heaters are that they have nearly double the life expectancy of traditional water heaters and are generally more cost-efficient. Homeowners may be able to save $100 or more per year on their utility bills with an Energy Star approved tankless heater, depending on how much hot water they use.
