Every person I dealt with from Morris Jenkins, face to face or over the phone, was very professional and courteous. They were patient and answered all my questions. I never felt pressured. They changed all my ductwork in a day and a half and even told me about a plumbing leak they spotted under the house that I never would have know about. They cleaned up behind themselves and treated me and my home with great respect. I am pleased to say that Morris Jenkins will be handing my HVAC needs.

Charles was nothing short of exceptional on this job. He was punctual (actually got to my house before I did) and then was super efficient in his work replacing the baseboard in one of the rooms in my home. The finished product looks excellent! If that wasn't enough, during our conversations found out Charles also could help with a plumbing issue I was having with one of our toilets. He probably stayed an extra 30 min at least helping try and unclog the toilet and he got that fixed as well! Even though he didn't ask for anything, I paid him extra for that work and the exceptional work he did on both projects. I certainly recommend him and I will reach out to him if I ever need help!

Alex was on time, up front, and courteous throughout the process. He fixed the issue I requested for our toilet, then was flexible and generous enough to return to our home later in the same day when I requested a second toilet issue to be fixed. I would definitely hire him again and recommend him to anyone with plumbing issues!

My husband and I have had problems with the plumbing in our home for years. We have hired numerous plumbers to "repair" these various issues. Mr. Stokes has been the only one to come in, identify the cause(s), explain to us what was really going on, and systematically correct our plumbing issues. It has been several weeks since the work was done, and everything is flowing properly for the first time in 15 years! We find Mr. Stokes to be very professional, knowledgeable, and honest. He kept us apprised of what he was doing and why, every step of the way. His integrity and quality is top-notch. His fees were very reaonable. I will not call another plumber as long as Mr. Stoke and Pathmaker Plumbing is in business. Highly-recommended!

I’ve used 4 D’s plumbing for both my rental house and my primary residence. My renter told me I needed to replace my kitchen faucet and sink due to leaks. Ed was able to go over in diagnose the problem for me. He solved the problem without replacing either of them- saving me the cost of replacement. He also brought my hot water heater up to code by installing an expansion tank when he replaced the old hot water heater. For my primary residence he installed new waterlines, new waste lines, faucets and and a shower head in my bathroom, and a macerator tank for my renovation. He also discovered and fixed an issue with my tankless hot water heater that another plumber installed. He’s my ‘go to’ guy for plumbing. I’ve given his contact info to anyone I know who’s looking for a GOOD plumber! Hardworking and very knowledgeable guy- I wouldn’t recommend anyone else.

I contacted IRV plumbing and electric and spoke to Robert because I was having problems with a clogged toilet. My nephews threw something in it. Leon and Sidney at IRV plumbing and electric came out and did an excellent job. They were knowledgeable and kept me informed the entire time. They had to replace the toilet and got me an affordable toilet. I dont have to spend hours plungering. Thank God. Wonderful job to both Leon and Sidney at IRV plumbing and electric. Thanks Robert.

Brad was simply amazing. Came out the day we moved into our home to do some plumbing work and was so efficient , honest and so courteous. He kept everything clean and tidy and took time to show us things and explain why he was doing the things he was doing. He is so pleasant and knowledgeable about so much beyond just plumbing. Can’t speak highly enough of him. We will recommend him to anyone that asks and I’m sure will use him again in the future.

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
