AA Sewer & Drain was quick to provide service(partially clogged branch) and came the same day as contacted working around our schedule. Pricing was more than quote but worth the money for the service and response we received. I would definitely hire AA Sewer & Drain for our future plumbing needs.

Ray was able to diagnose the problem and offered several solutions to me. He went out of his way to let me know that any work done had to be approved by me. I’m extremely pleased with his plumbing work and recommend him for any of your contractor needs.

I hired Mr.Jaffe from Freehold Enterprises to renovate my kitchen and bathroom. I was on a budget and told him I couldn't make changes to original floor plan because I knew that would be costly. Well he came up with a new design plan for me that was not only more functional but gorgeous... and it didnt cost more. He transformed my kitchen. He took the time to pick out tiles with me and created beautiful borders for the kitchen and bathroom with the tiles. He just has a great artistic eye. He saved me money by doing this and the end result was stunning.. He actually cared. I gett so many compliments on my home now and it looks like a spent a ton of money , when in fact , I didnt. I tell you, he restored my faith in contractors again. Whenever he came across a problem, whether it was plumbing or electric, he took care of it without taking advantage. I would re hire him in a second . I will never use anyone else. Thank you to Freehold Enterprises for an amazing job!

This review is an important one because I have had All American Home Repair & Maintenance complete several projects successfully. My rental cabin partial metal roof replacement was done in record time, the elevated cabin wooden porch flooring was repaired and made safe for family and vacationers. There was some seasonal grounds maintenance that was neat and attractive for the premises. A plumbing repair with new toilet installation was completed professionally. I would be happy to have Greg of All American attend to any project that night arise, his skills cover much homeowner and commercial ground.

I hired Full Service Restoration when our upstairs toilet overflowed and our basement was flooded due to plumbing issues that we were not able to address on our own. We called them on a Sunday morning and they were at our house 30 minutes later, fully equipped to start to clean up the water and get to the bottom of the plumbing issue. They were friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. They competently handled every aspect of the job, including the clean up, plumbing, and repair of the damaged walls and ceiling. It was a complicated job that basically involved tree roots invading the plumbing beneath our very old home. They were thorough but efficient, and kept us informed and updated every step of the way. But what really left a lasting impression and prompted me to take the time to write a review was when they called two weeks later to ensure that we were satisfied with the work! I would recommend Full Service Restoration to anyone who needs any kind of home repair or clean up from damage.

    I had a leaky pipe in the attic. Tom responded with a very reasonable quote. Showed up the next day as agreed and fixed the problem. It took about an hour from start to finish. I would use him again for other plumbing issues.

    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.  

    Follow these additional tips for confidently hiring a plumber or other skilled professional.
