We had a clogged drain in the kitchen. The kitchen is in the process of remodeling, so the sink was not there and no water to flush down the drain. I communicated with Jason via text messaging, sending him pictures and voicing my concerns. He answered all my questions very patiently even before arriving for the job. At the job, he was very professional and careful. He cleaned the drain, used the camera to check it, and cleaned up after he was done. He said that he warranties his work and we can call him back if anything goes wrong after the sink is installed. (The sink has not been installed yet, as of today.) We are very satisfied with his service and will be calling him again for future projects.

The Tech from Service Guys arrived at our home early on a Saturday morning, just as we had requested. He explained how he would make the repairs and got to work right away. We were disappointed with the resealing of a sink drain. The finished project looked sloppy and messy. We could have done that ourselves, but we hired a professional thinking he would do a better job than us. The other projects (fixing a broken kitchen drawer, installing a drawer pull, and hanging two kitchen shelves) were done quickly and to our satisfaction. We only wish the resealed drain was cleaner, but otherwise we are glad we hired the Service Guys.

Ackthba did a great job, taking care of a number of jobs in my house - recaulking our bathtub, repairing and varnishing a part of the floor, installing a bathroom light fixture and air conditioners, and a few other small miscellaneous things. He and his team are very detail oriented and did a great job, highly recommended!

My toilet was backed up and overflowed. Plumber Rob was great. He was neat, professional and courteous. I checked with 3 or 4 other company's before contacting BlueKrait drain cleaning and they had the best prices. As a woman I felt safe to have Rob in my home doing the work. He was neat and cleaned up after himself. I would definitely recommend BlueKrait service.

Came to my house 9pm right after I submitted the request to thumbtack. I had called two other plumbers on my own first and no one else would come right away. Mike showed up to drain the leaking water tank that night. Made appointment to do the replacement of the tank next day. Called to update me on timing the following day as well since he had to order the tank. Quickly completed the task once water tank obtained. Trustworthy and genuine. I’ll hire him again for other plumbing or handyman needs.

Eddie is a pro! He came on time and told me the cost up front, which included pick up of our new toilet (for a small charge, less than delivery). When he arrived with the new unit he spotted a problem right away, (we purchase the wrong size). We discussed our options and he agreed to go back exchange the wrong one and get the proper size. The job was done efficiently and Eddie cleaned up thoroughly, taking away the old toilet. As a member of the plumbers union he has insurance. I would highly recommend Eddie, and plan to use him for future plumbing jobs. Feel free to contact me if you like a referral. Ben

My partner and I just moved to NJ from NC and had quite a bit of repairs and upgrades we needed to complete on the new home we purchased. One such upgrade was venting the dryer. This home was built in 1892 so needless to say, the original architectural plan did not include a dryer. The previous owners installed a gas line - but where the gas line had to run to attach to the kitchen stove, made for a really poor location in the basement in regards to venting the dryer. Before Nick came, he let me know a price for a best case scenario, which I appreciated because had he named a price over my budget, it would have given us both the opportunity to cancel the estimate so as not to waste time. Nick arrived on-time for the estimate and at first it was pretty tricky to find a solution for venting the dryer without completely tearing up the ceiling and walls. Nick was persistent in finding though and was able to devise a plan of going through an old nonfunctional window that was hidden and covered. I hired him to complete the dryer venting and also uncap the gas line and install a hose in preparation for the dryer installation. On the day of the project, Nick arrived on time (7:30am on a Saturday) It took him about 2.5 hours to complete everything. He did a fantastic job. One strength I want to highlight is that Nick not only gets the job done, and does it well, but also takes pride in the aesthetics of his work. He could have easily vented the dryer in a way that exposed the pipe all the way along the ceiling and through the window, but instead he figured out a way to fish it under the sheet rock for a cleaner look. He also cleaned his work space completely - which I have found to be rare for contractors in this area. I have had many contractors who were ready to walk out the door without cleaning up their mess and would have done so had I not asked them to clean up before they go. I also want to highlight that I had a sewage pipe issue in the basement prior to his dryer venting project. Nick also does plumbing so I called him at 4pm and he was at my house by 8pm. People who who have hired folks for sewage pipe leaks know that cleaning up the sewage is not part of the job. Nick was willing to clean and sanitize on top of snaking the pipes and clearing them of clogs for a reasonable price. Nick has been great to work with and does great work. I have already hired him to take care of some other projects around the house (installing a shower door, clearing debris in the backyard). Glad we found a go-to handyman for our new home!

I would like to express my high satisfaction with the work that G & B plumbing did. My job, water supply valve & all internal tank parts replaced, was on the simply side, but upon deciding to hire them for this project, they arrived on schedule and completed it in a prompt & professional manner. I have been through 3 plumbers in the past 3 years, but I would definitely recommend Gio highly as well as use them in the future.

Roman plumbing came to my home to install plumbing for my washing machine and dryer connection as well as install a line in my house for a future gas hook up. I was amazed at how fast and thorough his work was. He's very approachable and has a great sense of humor, i loved the guy. I am absolutely going to hire him again for future jobs.

Great job. I will consider Mandell Plumbing for any plumbing issue that I have in the future. I originally thought that I had a sump pump issue but turned out to be a clogged drain to the street. They were at my house within an hour of calling them and fixed the issue as promised.

I had 4 people come in to give me a quote for this job (tub drain pipe needed replacement, so did pipes leading to boiler). Fabio was the last person to give me a quote and the most professional. He explained things patiently, politely and was super friendly. He went back to his truck and gave me a printout of exactly what the quote was for the jobs. The only written quote of the day! I was also impressed with how thorough he was and how neat he left the area. Highly recommended!

Kristian was AMAZING!! Constantly maintained communication throughout the entire project. Came multiple times to adjust and make slight changes until I was happy. Even helped in doing some custom plumbing fixtures! Has a great eye for making perfect results and is practical about costs for all your project needs. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a positive, charming, and professional go-getter attitude plumber. He won't cheat you or change pricing while on the job. Expect clean work with solid confidence in his abilities.

One of the nice things (and there are many!) about dealing with Nationwide Plumbing Sewer & Drain Piping and Heating, is that from your original phone call, to installation, repair or maintenance, you are working with Krista, Plumber and Heating Expert. Other places will send "whomever" they have available "whenever" they want to. You don't want that situation for your precious home. Krista will skillfully advise you, give you options, and send the right person to do the repair or installation. Honest professionals with excellent integrity. Came by to look into a shower plumbing issue I was having on short notice. Arrived early and worked very efficiently. Communication was excellent throughout. Would highly recommend.

We had a very good experience with R&R Plumbing. We had issues with a leak at the bathtub. Though it was not time critical, we got a quick appointment and the leak was fixed very quickly. They were accommodating of our schedule. They had to open the basement ceiling to fix the issue and later closed it and covered the area as well. Soon after this was fixed, we had another issue- a drain was clogged, for which we called them again. Although it was the weekend, Rezart sent his personnel and looked at the issue and it was fixed the next day. Overall, we had a very good experience with R&R plumbing. They are customer focused and the job was neatly executed. We would highly recommend them.

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 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.
