My project consisted of 6 or 7 items that needed handyman repair from a Home Inspection Report. I selected Bob based on his plumbing background but he was proficient in all the tasks and found answers to how to fix if he did not know. He was diligent, detailed oriented and made sure all items were completed correctly and efficiently. It is hard to find someone willing to go into a crawl space and replace insulation and he did this awful job cheerfully!!

They actually sent Tom, not Greg. There's an inspection of all bathroom and kitchen shut-off valves included in the service call. Tom was prompt, courteous and efficient. After some discussion, we reached an agreement on price. Job well done.

My husband and I hired Chris and his crew to do the roof on our new home as well as the roof on our existing house. The new home we knew needed less work due to it being new construction and originally had no intention of messing with our old home since we were putting it up for sale. The job they did and the manner in which Chris handled any and every dilemma, minor along with major, just blew us away. We are far into our 60s, my husband and myself, and very much set in our ways. We hold onto our money and expect to get every bang for every buck spent. Chris didn't feign understanding he actually appreciated our position and met every request, no matter how demanding or insane, we made each time. When he was not able to accomplish or acquire what we sought he didn't pull a fast one, never hit us with outrageous hidden or after the fact costs. He came personally to inform us of everything each step of the way. His charming and very down to earth, honest nature makes him and his employees more than hired help; to us they are very close to family in our eyes and hearts. Because of this we have since used the services of Complete Home Maintenance on two roofs, gutters, interior and exterior painting of our new home, carpet to hard wood flooring on all 3600 sq ft and they are currently fixing the disaster tile work done by another, not to be given the satisfaction of a mention, handyman/remodeling specialist in our master bathroom. Along with the big jobs have been countless 'honey-dos' that myself and husband have requested throughout each project. I want to make clear I am not aware of anyone else's position or experience with Chris or his company short of the friend who referred CHM to us and the expectation shouldn't be assumed, however, it should be mentioned that many of the smaller items such as installation of some appliances, plumbing issues, fence work and landscaping (minor jobs) went uncharged or bundled in at impossible to pass up discounted amounts. I am forever grateful to have received the referral of Chris and his team. This experience has given us such a different outlook on our untimely and unplanned transition between what was our dream home of 35 years into what we can now afford in today's market. We are on an adventure and we have been inspired to take pride in our new home and life which I promise you was nothing my husband nor I imagined possible. Please consider CHM for your current or upcoming project needs. You won't be disappointed I'm sure of this. This is the first review I have ever given and I hope I have completed it appropriately and at the same time given you the courage to make the call to Chris and his company.

My husband was home with him, but my husband said he was great. Replaced the toilet and took care of the toys that had been flushed really quickly. Looks nice.

    Having just moved to the area, I can't tell you how hard it is to find new "everything". New nail place, new whole foods grocery shopping...finding my new "go-to" places has been the hardest part of moving. Thank God I finally found a plumber I can trust! Brie is a delight to talk to when I need anything and if you need anything, ask for Robert! He's our guy! I've been so impressed with Straight Up! Plumbing. Give them a try - you'll see!!

    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 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 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.
