Had four things needing some work, two inside faucets leaking and two outside ones, one leaking the other not working. Mike came and took care of all these things. The faucet in the kitchen runs better than ever while the other one needed to be replaced and that was easily done. The outside ones are both up and running...couldn't be happier with the results! Definitely will keep New Concepts on file for future plumbing jobs. Finding someone reliable and fair to work with isn't easy. Thanks New Concepts!!

Gary came to our rescue after dealing with a bad contractor who poured grout down all of our pipelines. We reached out on Christmas day and he was out the very next morning. Honest, fair priced, and again has come to our rescue. He let us know he does all things plumbing related, so we will be using him in the future on other properties.

We just finished up remodeling our home and hired Scott to come in and complete a lot of the final projects. I've lost count of how many times I hired him to come back to complete more projects! He installed all of our new ceiling flushmounts, chandeliers, vanity lights, and a ceiling fan. He installed the new shower plumbing and toilet. He installed a new bathroom vanity and faucet, which required a little creativity and extra work on his end to get the plumbing accommodate the new vanity. Also had him change out quite a few outlets and hang some artwork. I was about to call an electrician, because our outlets weren't working in one of our rooms. We had many contractors in our home and everyone tried fixing it and flipping breakers, but Scott had the magic touch and fixed it right away! He is trustworthy, easy to work with, and promptly responds to all of my messages! I'm going to have him come back and build shelving for the wall of our garage!

Harry was on time and professional. Scheduling work with him was very easy, and his price was in the range I had expected to pay. When he arrived onsite, it was determined that one of the projects would not be possible for this visit. Harry and I negotiated to an agreeable amount, and I couldn't be happier with the work he performed. Overall, I am very satisfied with this experience, and will seek out Harry again when I have plumbing projects.

I hired Jeff to complete a bathroom remodel that I had started and didnt have time to finish. I did not know jeff prior to this and was given his name as a referral from a realtor I know. The project included electrical, plumbing, carpentry, tile and finish work. The bathroom is large, about 20 feet x 7 feet and includes a custome open shower that is 7 x 5 feet. Jeff quickly assessed the work and the subcontractors he would use to bid the job with him and provided a bid back to me within two weeks. Jeff also estimated the time it would take to complete the project and included it in the bid. The project went pretty much exactly to schedule, with Jeff and each of the subs completing the work when they needed in order for the next steps to start. Jeff was very responsive to email, text and phone calls all through out the project and proactive in contacting me as needed to maintain this schedule. In the end the quality of work provided was excellent on all accounts. Each sub and Jeff took pride in their work and it showed as the pieces were completed. Even though the electrical, plumbing and framing is all covered in the end they took the time to make it look great had it been left exposed. The project completed on time and on budget and I couldnt have been more pleased with the result. Thanks Jeff!

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.
