I hired Don on three separate occasions during 2014 and plan on hiring him in 2015 to do needed work around our home, which is located in East Amherst. I find Don to be communicative with the customer, a professional and passionate in his work to ensure the work is of top quality and reasonably priced. Don's estimates of the work to be performed were accurate and complete. All changes to the scope of the work were primarily at my request, were thoroughly discussed with me and approved by me before work began. The work was finished in the time frame we agreed to up front. For substantially all of the work on these projects Don had a staff of two or three working with him. The staff was professional, just like Don, were very hard workers and pleasant to my wife and I. The first project was in our kitchen where a portion of the ceramic tile floor needed replaced, a new backsplash around the stove was installed and a sliding glass door between the kitchen and sun room was removed and replaced with a new door frame, which was stained and sealed. Don committed to a start date and an end date and he met those dates. This project was completed within a week. The work was of top quality. We wanted a border installed around the section of the kitchen floor being replaced and Don took his time to make sure it fit without excessive cuts to the border. This to me is a sign of his passion. The second project I hired Don to complete was to replace a 384 square foot treated wood deck. Don clearly explained to me up front that he could only quote on the surface of the deck and wouldn't know if the supports under the surface needed replaced until he and his team pulled off the old deck floor. Fortunately the supports were in good condition and this project was completed on time and in accordance with the estimate he provided. Don estimated the new deck would take three to four days and his estimate was met. Don hauled away all of the old deck and cleaned any and all debris. Again, Don was very communicative throughout this project making sure I knew when he was going to start and when he was going to complete. Don came back approximately six weeks later to stain this deck. He communicated up front when he would be on site and how long it would take and he met his timeframe. I had Don put two coats of stain which he did. The first day of staining he spent about a half day then left so the stain could properly dry then came back the next morning to put on the second coat of stain. This deck was done professionally and his work is excellent. The third project was a 360 square foot deck that I hired Don to replace. We had the same conversation when Don delivered the estimate that he can only estimate what he can see and wouldn't know if the supports under the deck floor needed replaced until he removed the old floor. The supports under this deck did in fact need replaced. Within a day I was provided a revised estimate to remove and replace all of the supports and at that time Don explained to me the timing to finish this deck. This deck was estimated to take six or seven days to complete and again Don met his schedule. Don completed this deck with the same level of professionalism and perfection that he did the first deck and kitchen work. We also agreed in advance to the revised work and timing of completing the work and he did the work in the time frame communicated to me. He came back several weeks later and stained this deck. Again, I am completely satisfied with the understanding Don had when he put the estimates together, the quality of the craftsmanship, the professionalism of he and his team as well as their meeting the goals in terms of timing we agreed to up front. I have recommended Don to our friends and family and would not hesitate to recommend Don to anyone. Also, I have already spoken to Don about additional work we would like to have completed on our home during 2015.

R.J. Dippold Home replaced a power vented hot water tank for us. Rob the owner was knowledgeable and very informative on what we needed. He was able to install a new tank in a very timely manner and was sure to clean up after himself. I would highly recommend !

I just had a water heater installed. What really attracted me to this company was their pricing. Their price was a lot lower than any of the competitors quotes. The technicians were right on time and did the job in under an hour. Being a typical struggling college student, I really appreciated how both owners worked with me on a payment plan. They were very understanding with my requests. I would definitely use them again in the future! Highly recommend them.

Taylor put a water tap in the back of my home, his work is excellent, he is kind, professional, and prompt. That is just some of the few reasons why Taylor is the only plumber I will use. You can trust him and his work is top notch.

Had to get a cold water line so we could hook up a washing machine. Walked us through exactly what needed to be done and quoted a very reasonable price. Hired on Saturday, job was done on Monday. Very quick service. Will keep the business card and will recommend to anyone in need of their services.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    When is it time to replace a water heater?

    Although regular water heater maintenance and water heater repair may extend the life of your hot water heater, it won’t last forever. Most water heaters have a life expectancy of about 10 years. Many water heaters need to be replaced when they’re 8-12 years old — that’s when they start to show signs of fatal wear, such as leaking around the base of the tank. A water heater should be replaced when it fails to sufficiently heat water for the home; if your heater is operating erratically, check first for a blown fuse or a tripped breaker to make sure an electrical issue isn’t causing the problem. Another time to replace a water heater is when you want to upgrade to either a larger model or a more energy-efficient one.

    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.

    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.

    Who can fix a water heater?

    When a water heater stops running effectively, it’s best to hire a water heater repair professional to troubleshoot the problem. Whether it’s a plumbing company that offers water heater repair services or a provider specializing in water heater repair and maintenance, most repair companies offer same-day service as well as weekend and after-hours emergency calls. Usually, water heater repair professionals are experts in both electric and gas systems, as well as tank and tankless heaters, and can repair any kind of unit.

    Why is my hot water not working?

    The most common complaint among homeowners is that their hot water isn’t working — and the water heater is generally the culprit. Typically, it isn’t making the water as hot as you’d like it to be. When the water isn’t hot enough — or isn’t hot at all — run through this troubleshooting checklist for basic water heater repair tasks:

    • Make sure the power is connected to the heater, then reset the thermostat.
    • If it’s a gas water heater, make sure the pilot light is lit.
    • Raise the temperature setting on the thermostat.

    If these stops don’t lead to hot water, it’s time to either check the heating element in an electric water heater or the burner unit and gas control valve in a gas-powered heater. A water heater repair and maintenance company can handle these repair jobs. However, if your hot water heater is eight years or older, it may be time to replace the water heater instead of repairing it.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
