We interviewed Bill last week for a plumbing issue. He came promptly and gave a fair estimate very reasonably priced. He was polite and seemed very knowledgable. We hired him to fix the issue and he committed to the job quickly. Today the issue was scheduled to be fixed. Bill arrived on time with all needed equipment. The initial problem was later found not the problem at no fault to Bill as we led him to think that was where our plumbing problem was. He took extra time to locate the real issue which was in another part of the house. He was able to fix it quickly and while most would have charged extra he was extremely fair and stuck to his original estimate. He's A+ in our book and would recommend him to our friends and family, along with hire him for other jobs in the future!

These guys were great. They helped design the bathroom as well as do the plumbing, tile, electric, and all construction. They provided an estimate within 48 hrs of contacting them, started within 2 weeks, and were finished within a month. Despite unforeseen problems with our house ( bad plumbing, broken joists, irregular studs, etc), they finished basically within budget. The finished bathroom is what we envisioned at the start. We hope to employ them for future projects.

I have hired Carol Kelly on numerous occasions for upgrades and repairs to my rental properties. Carol has always been on time and performed exemplary work at reasonable prices. She is very knowledgeable about many home related issues, from small jobs such as repairing holes in walls, to major jobs like putting in cabinets and installing a complete brand new bathroom. I would definitely recommend Carol for any of your home repair or remodeling needs.

Rick was awesome. Friendly, great communication before and during the scheduling of my project. He does a lot, from garage door repairs, to plumbing projects. He will definitely be in my contacts to call if I need more things done around my house that I can't do because I'm not a pro.

I called Barbell Plumbing when I needed my drain cleaned and a toilet replaced. Barbell Plumbing responded quickly,was affordable and definitely had my best interest in mind. They beat the quote given to me by a local big name company that clearly did not care about my interests. Barbell Plumbing was clean, efficient and got the job done right. I couldn’t have asked for better service. I highly recommend them for all your plumbing needs!

The guys at Global Kings have always done a great job for us. Painting takes half the time I would expect and they do a great job. They are very detail oriented and a pleasure to have around. We usually stay around with contractors and there isn't any goofing off. They have done painting, plumbing, an entire kitchen install. All very good work. Would not hesitate to recommend them.

Tag Mechanical has been top notch from start to finish. We purchased a geo-thermal heating and cooling system. The crew was prompt, professional and clean! They were very considerate trying not to disrupt our lives while the project was going on. After that we were ecstatic because we started saving money on our energy bills right away! Even paying for the geo system coupled with our energy bills was far less than what we were paying before they installed it. After that, we purchased a Generac standby generator and a new hybrid hot water heater. We couldn't be happier with the entire process from our salesman Courtney Rutherford to our service tech Chad who comes around once a year to check and service everything, Tag has been the best home improvement experience by far. I would recommend Tag Mechanical to anyone who needs heating, cooling, solar, plumbing or electrical work done!! They're the best! The only thing we wished was different was that we had done it sooner

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
