Robert quoted us a very reasonable price and came out to our house in a snowstorm. He finished the job promptly and then took a look at another problem that I discovered when he was in route and he promptly took care of that too. Robert was professional and personable, his prices were very reasonable and we will definitely be contacting him if we have any future plumbing needs.

Arrived early; stayed beyond the expected work time to complete the job. His main objective proved to be quality of his work; time is secondary. As a rule owners of business do not get tipped (only employees get tipped). Owners work in anticipation of profits, whereas employees work in anticipation of wages. Tipping an owner is suppose to be an insult to the owner. But I don't adhere to that. If the man does an admirable job I express myself in a way that benefits his pockets as well as by words. He low-balls his rates; I would definitely pad the price he quotes. He very conscientious and thorough. He double-checks his work before he leaves. I can tell he leaves happy about the work he's done, as I am. His work is professional and reliable. He is a very personable individual. I enjoyed his visit and watching him work. What's more he involves you in his work, answering any questions you have, and takes you step-by-step through the process. He worked on a 30-year-old refrigerator and resolved major issues on it, ones the manufacturer did not dare to attempt. Need I say more? If you need a plumbing get this man; request Appliance Repair.

We needed a plumbing repair late Sunday afternoon at my parents home (60 year old house with original copper plumbing). They had found water on the floor of their finished basement. It was not gushing, but a steady drip. We shut off the water to the house. Matt responded quickly through Thumbtack, and was at the house within a couple hours. It was a cracked fitting, which he repaired. Price was reasonable, he was professional and we will use him again. He also called the next day for follow-up.

Pete did electrical fixtures, plumbing, adjusted doors and locks and installed a new bathroom vanity. He also fixed roof seams on small roof. The work lasted 2 days. On time and a pleasure to have work in my home. I highly recommend. I'm going to use again in the very near future.

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!

We hired Gio and Benny twice since buying and renovating our 3-bed apartment. They did an excellent job with everything and are very careful and thorough with all their installations. They were also thoughtful in putting drop clothes down on our new wood floors before working, and they carefully checked all their work (cycled machines) before moving on. They first cut and re-fitted the gas pipe to our new slide-in oven range, which now hugs our counter and backsplash without any gaps. They then installed our new Delta faucet, InSinkerstor garbage disposer, and Bosch dishwasher, and they checked to make sure my water line on our new Samsung fridge was secure. Lastly, they installed our new washer and dryer. The washer needed it’s own electrical outlet because the previous w/d was all one unit running off of an existing 220 service, so they installed a new outlet for just the washer (110) and also installed the 4-prong plug and wire to the new dryer (220). It was great that they were willing and capable of installing the GFCI electrical outlet - some plumbers might have told me to hire an electrician, but instead they did it per code and did not charge me much extra. They also fixed a broken PVC air pipe on the waste line for the washer, hooked up hot/cold and waste hoses securely, and installed / connected a new aluminum duct for dryer’s exhaust. All for one very reasonable price with no surprises (I checked with a friend who is a plumber in Virginia - price was reasonable). They even checked and balanced the washer machine during spin cycle (new machines will shake / vibrate if not properly balanced). Again, they did an amazing job, and they are nice guys who are very professional. We plan to hire them again when we renovate our bathroom. I highly recommend them for your next plumbing project!

He cleaned up during and after the job. Not only he did the job he hired for, upon my request, he tested/replaced a bad electrical switch. THANK YOU. I highly recommend Mr.Peckham. He is GREAT at what he does. P.S. This is my first feedback leaving on Thumbtack.

I had Mr. Roman fix quite a few problematic areas in my home. He arrived at the appointed time as discussed and was very professional. I needed some roofing repairs and plumbing work done and decided to give Thumbtact a try. I must say that he did a wonderful job with both and his work quality is impeccable. I highly recommend Mr. Roman for quality work. He's my new go to for all my home issues. Thank you Mr. Roman. 5 stars all the way!

A piece of the pipe under our kitchen sink rotted away, and caused a leak this morning. Mandell Plumbing was the first to respond to my Thumbtack request, and within one hour, Ryan was at our house. He gave us a fair price and completed the work right then and there. He was respectful and polite. We recommend Mandell Plumbing!

Sam and crew did a fabulous job from start to finish. We had multiple jobs like sheet rock repair and finishing, painting, grouting tiles, minor electric and plumbing work as well. He finished all of these within 3 days. The price was reasonable and he offered full clarity into the price per job as well.

My experience with Fabio was an awesome one. First of all, out of ALL of the plumbers I had come give me an estimate on a new boiler install, he was literally the ONLY one who checked to see if the problem actually existed. Not only that, he tried to find ways that I could get around having to buy a new boiler. He checked for gas leaks, he checked my chiminey, he explained the process, told me about possible "hidden fees" with the town inspection, and even offered to include other plumbing issues I had in my basement at a discounted rate upon choosing his company. In addition he was punctual, efficient, and had a very good demeanor about him. I would definitely use this company and refer to others! :-)

It is my pleasure to recommend the excellent work of Rick Doggett who was the general contractor for a remodeling project of my apartment in Jersey City. From the initial interaction and proposal phase through construction and the timely completion of the job, Rick and his crew performed at the highest level of professionalism, work ethics, and dedication. The work involved a complete re-structure of the internal floor plan, moving walls, installing new fixtures, hardwood floor and carpet, electrical, plumbing, and painting, while communicating with an owner who was not on location. I would, with no hesitation, engage Rick in any future construction or remodeling that will come-up. Thank you Rick and crew for a wonderful job.

I had a messed up kitchen faucet and Hassan did a great job with replacing the faucet and the valves. He is really knowledgeable of plumbing and was able to have a quick turnaround on my project (one day). Definitely recommend and will call him again.

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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
