Jeremy and Rachel worked really hard to repair my water heater but it is older so I ended up replacing it. They were able to get me scheduled in today and replace it. I really appreciate all the effort they put in so I could have hot water before it gets cold again. I will definitely call them again.

Rescue 1 Construction's Mike Kemp did an outstanding job. I simply needed a new water softener installed as my 20-year old softener "died." He stopped by the house within hours of contact (on a weekend, no less) to see what needed to be done. He took measurements, familiarized himself with the new softener, we agreed on a price I thought was fair, and the work was done next day. He completed & cleaned up following the installation and forwarded photos as I was unable to be at my home at the end of the installation. The job was completed promptly, efficiently and in a timely matter. I've already recommended him to others. Michele in Olathe

Robert happened to be servicing my furnace during an inspection from the gas company. He on the spot took on the larger job of getting my older home up to code by redirecting ductwork, venting a water heater, and capping a gas line. Robert was in and out quickly, knowledgeable, fair priced, and his ductwork is neat as a pin.

We needed a new hot water heater. Jim Stoufer responded to our email request through Thumbtack. He was prompt to respond. His estimate was reasonable and fair and he was able to schedule the installation quickly. He arrived on time and completed the work within two hours. He hauled away the old hot water heater which was very helpful for us. We will definitely contact him again if we have any other plumbing needs and will refer him to our family and friends.

My husband hired John to paint the outside of our house. He was a very hard worker, and Never complained, He spent a few days scraping, and the rest of the week painting.. We were very pleased with his work. It was a very professional job... and this past spring My husband hired John to reapint a ceiling in our house that was stained with water marks. He took his time taping everything up, covering up furniture that couldn't be moved, and did a marvelous job making the ceiling look like new.. He was left alone in the house on many occasions And I never felt worried. John is a VERY trusted individual. And there are more projects in the works that he will be hired to help with in the future...

This guy is awesome! He was one of the first to respond to my job on Thumbtack. Came out on a Saturday and diagnosed our problem with our water heater and quoted us a great price. Initially he wasn't going to be able to install until Monday. Received a surprise call on Sunday and he came out Sunday evening to install our new water heater. He above and beyond to help fix our problem. I would recommend him to everyone!

Cullen repaired part of a shower wall, part of the bathroom floor, and part of a ceiling below - all which suffered water pipe leak damage in a rental house I own. The job took 2 half days, as I recall. Part of the shower wall and the ceiling below had to be re-sheet rocked. Also, some of the shower wall tiles had to be replaced. The shower wall is tiled with early 1970's tiles which are no longer available. Since only the tiles around the faucet and knobs had to be replaced, Cullen searched hard to find something that would look acceptable, if not identical, to the remaining tiles. All turned out looking quite nice. It was a plus to have Cullen working on this project as the tenants speak Spanish - not much English - and Cullen is fluent in Spanish. Absolutely nothing went wrong and I would highly recommend Cullen.

I worked with Higher Standards LLC on a project that involved tracing down the source of a CO2 leak. The CO2 from the furnace/water heater was not venting from house properly and was subsequently causing high CO2 levels in the upper region of the home. Higher Standards LLC responded to my request promptly and came out the next day to address the issue. The issue was resolved to my satisfaction and the team guaranteed their work. The team was professional, responsive, and offered a good value for the work performed. I would recommend Higher Standards LLC and look forward to working with them in the future.

      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.
