We hired Chuck and his crew to remodel our kitchen. This was a major remodel as a load bearing wall was removed and everything else was completely gutted. We had new cabinets, counter tops, flooring, plumbing and electric installed. They arrived every day on time and put in a full days work. After every work day they cleaned up and put all of their tools away. We really appreciated their tidiness. No sub-contractors were used...the same four guys were here the whole time. That was one of the main draws in hiring them. Their work is excellent. Everything start to finish was done correctly and with the utmost care. You can tell they take great pride in their work. We could not be happier with the finished product. If we ever decide to hire a contractor in the future, Barnes Sklare Remodeling will be it. I would definitely recommend them to our family and friends.

Luke and Steve came out today and did some miscellaneous lighting installs and plumbing work. I can’t speak more highly of them and their quality and professionalism. The job was originally just 2 chandelier installs, but escalated to 3 ceiling fans, 3 vanity lights, 2 flush mount lights, 1 toilet install, and a vanity with faucet install. All was done within a day and at a reasonable price. I will be hiring them to come back out for some additional plumbing work! So thankful for a job well done!!

Brian did an excellent job and took the time to ensure a high level of quality in his work. He took care of related items instead of just leaving them to be taken care of later or by someone else. From start to finish Brian completed the entire job and related clean up. This was a whole house plumbing removal and replacement job.

Matthew was such a great find for our plumbing needs! He was very quick to respond, flexible to our schedule and very informative while working on our kitchen issues. He gave an amazingly fair price and it was worth every penny for the amount of time he spent making sure the job was done right but also for the amount of time he spent educating us on what he was doing and how to avoid further problems. We will definitely be recommending him to our friends and family and will utilize him and his skills for the future.

We had to replace a number of bathroom faucets. Daniel came by to take a look and advised he would try and find cartridges to repair some our faucets, rather than install new ones, which would have cost us much more. He spent some time looking into this and advised the product wasn’t OEM and that the cartridge was difficult to track down. Rather than charging us more, he gave us a very reasonable rate to replace the old ones, keeping our total cost down. We plan on using Daniel for all our plumbing needs in the future.

Bill is amazing. After suffering from water backup that did extensive basement damage, Bill put us on the right path with a high-end, redundant pump and redundant battery solution to guard against future water damage. Bill is professional without being pushy. He knowledgeably walks through possible solutions, expresses his opinion, and let’s you choose accordingly. He installed quickly and thoroughly. I feel confident recommending Bill from Shamrock Plumbing for any of your plumbing needs or nightmares.

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.
