We inherited our house from my parents and I was looking for ideas and ways to bring it up to todays' standards and styles. I requested NWT Services to come out and look over our home to give us their thoughts on ideas to make our home, our home! The technicians not only presented us with some good ideas, but when they put it all into working perspective we were blown away! We had them finish our basement, remodel our kitchen and remodel our bathrooms, and also some general items in rest of home. I have dealt with contractors in the past, but Nick and his company are different. By that, they are of the caring nature, they get the job done, are clean, punctual, professional, honest and also are not expensive. They treated us and our home with respect. These are things that are lost amongst many contractors. I could tell that whoever taught them their line of work, taught them the right way. I would highly recommend for any project, large or small. We will always call them back for anything we need done.

Mark was responsive and had a fixed price. He got the job done in an hour (diagnose, run out and buy parts and install). All plumbers seem to have a very high basic cost, $150 and upwards. Would help if he adopted new payment technology, or mentioned upfront that he only takes cash or check on the spot - Chase online tools, which I use w/ many contractors, would cut him a check the same way and send to his address. I had to drive him to the ATM and pay him. In addition, he set the water fill level to factory setting, wherein he was trying to help keep water usage low - which is causing a problem occasionally. It doesn't get rid of all the stuff in the toilet. And we have to end up flushing twice anyway. It would help if he made a quick trip to fix this to increase the fill level.

After reviewing three contractors, I went with Nicholas and Anthony, his tile guy. He did an amazing job! Anthony was a pure perfectionist and neat in his work and gave me exactly the look I wanted for a backsplash and fireplace surround. Oh yeah, he sanded some windows and repainted the trim. Windows look brand new!! Will definetly use ADRM again for other jobs I need done around the house in the near future! The price wasn't the cheapest, but wasn't the most expensive either. Nicholas gave me a fair price for great work, what more can you ask for?

Tom is the best. OI have hired him in the past to redo and extend an old deck which turned out fantastic! Now he is in the process of finishing my basement and I am thrilled with the framing work he did in the 1250 sq foot space. I will definitely continue to hire Tom as not only are his costs reasonable, he always call me back and shows up on time. When i have tried to hire out other handyman or contractors its been the opposite. A lot of no shows or half done work that I they never call me back and go dark.

Hector and his crew replaced the front half of my double drive which had been badly cracked and had sunken in. I had five contractors bid the job. Hector's knowledge and quality of materials was up there with the highest price contractors but he was able to beat their bids slightly. What really set him over the top that no one else did was that he offered to fill a large depression in the lawn next to the driveway as well for no extra charge. Maybe it's a little thing, but it shows his commitment to excellence. The driveway looks great.

Jon was polite and professional throughout our project. We have original plumbing in a 1948 house, and he was patient and thorough in working on our shower fixtures. It took a few visits to get the job done due to a lack of replacement parts. After replacing cartridges, the leaks are gone and our fixtures function much better (tighter turning and easier to control temperature) We are now getting a quote to add a bathroom in our basement!

Alex was a breath of fresh air as far as dealing with contractors. Not one excuse ever left his mouth. He was on time both days of the job, worked 10 hours the first day. Drywall and mudding skills are top-notch. After painting, my 1973 drywall appears brand new. I would recommend him to everyone and will be calling on him for future projects. Class act!

Joe replaced our entire sewer that was a complete mess. The job ended up being much worse than anticipated. He stuck to our original agreement nevertheless. In our case, it was very important that the job was not delayed as our basement had about 8 inches of water in it. He arranged for the work to begin and it started exactly when he said it would. The crew that came out to work with him were excellent, and also nice people. They had no problem with updating us on what they were doing and educating us on the process. I cannot say enough good things about Joe Colville. He restored my faith in humanity this past week after having so many bad things happen and for that I am forever grateful. He is not only an excellent plumber, but a good man with integrity and character. We are just blessed that we found him to help us. I would recommend Joe for any job that you might have. He went totally above and beyond what was expected. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts - and I mean that.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How often do you clean a septic tank?

For homeowners with a septic system, it’s important to have a regular septic cleaning schedule. To protect ground and drinking water, the Environmental Protection Agency recommends residential septic cleaning every three years. Many septic system companies state that you can maintain a healthy system with regular septic cleanings every three to five years. In addition to cleaning, a septic tank inspection once a year will uncover problems and can save you thousands in cleanup and repair.

When waste goes into your septic system, it separates into three parts. The solids (sludge) drop to the bottom, wastewater floats in the middle, and a layer of scum rises to the top. Regularly scheduled cleanings prevent the sludge in your septic tank from building up and clogging your tank, leading to an overflow. Pricing for a standard septic cleaning ranges between $200 and $500, with the national average cost at $315. It’s easier, more cost-effective, and better for your home health to keep your septic tank maintained.

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.

Who pumps septic tanks?

Septic system professionals pump septic tanks. Pros in different states will have different licensing and certification regulations. Make sure the company you hire is licensed and certified, is a legitimate business, and has the appropriate insurance. Damage to your septic system could cost thousands of dollars in cleanup and repair, so it’s best to hire a qualified professional from the start.

Using an industrial-strength vacuum hose connected to a tanker truck, the septic tank company will pump out the contents of your tank. First they break up the scum of the top layer, then mix the sludge (on the bottom) into the wastewater for removal. To get all the sludge and scum from the tank, pros may use a tool called a septage spoon that loosens stubborn waste from the sides of the tank. After the tank is hosed down and empty, it is inspected for any cracks or leaks that could lead to trouble in the future. The waste in the truck is then transported and disposed of at a waste management treatment center, a cesspool or an approved dumping site.

How much is it to clean a septic tank?

Nobody wants their septic tank to back up. Regular septic cleaning and pumping is important to keep your ground and drinking water protected from harmful bacteria. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends septic system cleaning every three years. The national average cost for a septic tank specialist is $315. Costs for septic cleaning may vary based on where you live, how large your septic tank is, and how long it has been since the last cleaning. If it’s been many years since you’ve had your tank cleaned, the process of breaking up and removing the solids may take longer and could cost more. Typical residential septic tanks range in size from 1,000 to 2,500 gallons. The price range for septic cleaning usually averages $200-$500, with varying by tank size. Repairs or replacement parts will also add to your cost. To keep your septic tank in good health between cleanings, only flush approved items such as toilet paper, and don’t rely on your garbage disposal for composting. Items that don’t break down easily (like lemon rinds or feminine hygiene products) can back up the septic system, leading to clogs and overflow. If you smell the unmistakable odor of sewage or can see sewage bubbling up above your drain field, call for a septic cleaning immediately.

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.
