Mr. Rooter sent out a technician promptly, and it was determined I needed a new water heater. The technician removed the old water heater, left and returned with a new heater and installed it within 3 hours. The cost was reasonable and the service was exceptional. I purchased a "membership" which gave me a discount equal to the cost of the membership. The membership included future discounts on service, equipment and yearly water heater maintenance.

Leroy was very accommodating and responsive. Not only did he take care of the water heater replacement, he also took the time to address other plumbing concerns I had in the house and also got those fixed since he had the parts on his van. He also educated me on maintenance of the water heater and also gave recommendations regarding my other plumbing concerns factoring in my perspective and plans for the house in the near-term. I highly recommend Leroy -- great service, knowledgeable, and also informative! Leroy rocks!

Santiago installed 20 ft. of dryer duct for me and did an excellent job. He is very intelligent and very articulate, and most importantly VERY HONEST. I asked him to create quotes for 2 additional jobs and gave him every opportunity to price gouge me by offering to let him purchase items for me, like a new faucet. An unscrupulous person would have jumped at the chance to buy and install a cheap faucet but charge me top dollar.....but not Santiago! He gave me several very legitimate reasons why I should make the purchase myself, i.e. my particular taste, my price point, the ability for me to see the item before purchase, etc. If you are hesitant to hire someone sight unseen, you do not need to worry. Santiago is a trustworthy, experienced professional.

Water heater went out. Quick response to inquiry for repair. Picked up water for us at Home Depot, installed it and hauled away old one. Also checked next day to make sure we had hot water. Prompt responses and constant communication. We have found us a handyman! Thanks so much.

Todd Griffin came out to work on my 80 gallon Rheem water heater twice in 2 days. He replaced the anode rod and pressure relief valve on day 1. Anode rod was seized up and very nearly gone. On day 2 he replaced the heating elements which had gone south. Upper element was difficult to get out but he got it with a socket.. Good job Todd. Reasonable rates. 10/23-24/16.

I was having significant plumbing issues that went on for quite some time - I had other plumbers out who did all kinds of things from trying to manually clear the clogs to replacing toilets to diverting my plumbing through my attic! Still had difficulties with back ups and drainage issues. Then we got hit with a massive water bill. I called Home Services of the Triad and they sent out their master plumber, Mike Young. He knew right away that it was a problem with the main line - he handled all the details for replacing the main line pipe from communicating with the city to hiring a backhoe to the replacement of the pipe and even the clean up and grading/re-seeding of my yard. I ended up getting a full credit for my water bill and now everything works perfectly!

I had a leak in my chimney which caused water damage. Louis fixed it all at a reasonable price. Not only did he fix that as he got to my home I asked him to fix several more things. He replaced my water heater and moved it from the kitchen to the basement and he also fixed a ceiling fan. Louis was a pleasure to work with. He was on time and efficient. I will use him again for several all other projects that I have. Thanks Louis

I hired Justin through Thumbtack to look at installing a new electric water heater. Justin was able to come out, look at what I was wanting to get done and provide a good suggest on how to proceed. Justin completed the job in a very timely manner, was able to work around my schedule, cleaned up after finishing the job and his work was perfect. Justin communicated by email and phone and did so in a professional and timely manner. He showed up when he said he would and followed up perfectly. I have him listed in my contacts so that I can and will hire him to complete a few other jobs that I have planned.

Great tile work, okay plumbing work. Didn't clamp pipe to stud, so shower arm wobbles now. Installed pex for the tub spout, should have been copper. Water wouldn't turn hot, so I had to take apart mixing valve to adjust. Overall, for tile work, I definitely would hire again.

George certainly emphasizes customer service. From the beginning, he answered all of my questions and was very helpful with suggestions concerning the best method of repair. He replaced a gas control valve on my water heater but also resolved some additional issues, ensuring its proper operation. His vast level of experience is obvious. You cannot go wrong if you select this individual for your service needs.

Courtney from North East Services did some excellent work for me on short notice on a Saturday. My upstairs attic A/C system wasn't kept in good shape (by previous owner) when I had bought my home; one-day, water backed up in the A/C emergency pan and leaked through my ceiling. The next day (a hot hot Saturday), I located North East Services on Thumbtack and Courtney came by same-day after giving me a good detail estimate. He diagnosed multi issues with my upstairs A/C unit: His thourough explanation gave me the peace of mind of knowing exactly what the problems were. There were multiple issues that Courtney fixed for me on his trip out: bad electrical connection on A/C fan, incorrectly mounted A/C water overflow shutoff mechanism (leading to ceiling damage), then he proceeded to clean out the A/C drainage hose and check the function of the A/C compressor outside (he added one pound freon). I would recommend Courtney to work on your HVAC; he's skilled, articulate, and fair on price!. Eric

We were moving into a house knowing there was an existing hot water pressure problem to be fixed and a speculative quote from Lloyd. Lloyd quickly found a nickel in the incoming line to the water heater and saved us money in the process. In the future, we will definitely be calling Lloyd first and referring him to everyone!

    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.
