Wade was very punctual. Called if he was delayed. Observed issues with plumbing, made repairs the following day with only about an hour of down time with my water system. Would recommend them again, price was reasonable for work performed.

Brandon was fantastic. The small task, relighting the hot water heater, turned into a huge job when we discovered a hole in the tank. I don't have a lot of money and Brandon quoted me a price for the entire replacement labor for not much more than the original. Very committed to doing the job right. I will definitely call Brandon next time I have a home repair need.

Dave was fantastic! He contacted me within 20 minutes of the request and was at my residence within an hour after I choose him to do the work. He gave me an estimate and installed a new water heater that same day. He took the time to answer my questions and even offered to do a few minor maintenance things while working around the water heater. He even provided me a referral for a handyman for another project. He was prompt, friendly and a great help! Would recommend and I'd use him again!

Isaiah was professional. He looked in the plumbing (water heater) problem I had and tried to resolve it. However we needed to replace the water heater and he took on the project and did not charge me an additional cost for the extra time he spent troubleshooting the problem. He got the issue resolved and charged me his rate for a water heater replacement.

I had to replace a 39 year-old water heater that finally decided to kick the bucket. After talking with various companies, I chose Custom. Mike was prompt, professional, and affordable. The installation took under three hours, and the replacement has been working great! I'd recommend anyone to check outCustom Contracting.

Clint quickly figured out the problem with our furnace, ordered the part and installed it at a fair price. I look forward to having a Pure water solutions system put in to replace our current water softener so that not only will we have soft water, but clean drinking water right out of the faucet never to buy bottled water again!

Excellent, efficient and timely service. They inspected my old water heater on Tuesday and installed a new one on Wednesday. Brian was the installation tech and I found him to be personable, willing to answer my questions and explain the operation and maintenance of the new water heater. They weren't the lowest bid, but they were the first to say they wanted an on-site inspection before giving me a price. I would highly recommend this company. They are professional, knowledgeable and apparently well-respected in the Central Ohio area for the way they do business.

When Centex built our home in 2003, they went cheap and instead of using a pipe that fit, they soldered extensively behind the wall to our shower to make the pipes fit. When we went to replace the leaking shower head, we found this issue. The soldering had broke and needed to be repaired. We hired, after hiring several other contractors, Blessed, to come fix the issue. I corresponded with April, the owner, and arranged for the service. Bill called about 30 minutes out and arrived on time. I showed the Bill the problem, and he immediately knew what was the issue and how to fix it. I am currently on crutches so I was hesitant as I could not get in and out of the basement to turn off the water. Not needed. Bill was able to remove the old soldering, install a coupling, etc - and do all that plumbing stuff that I have no clue how to do. Long story short, he was done in about an hour and the cost was $25 less than he had quoted. He advised what small items we needed to do ourselves (he could have, but I asked if we could finish this part) to get the shower working - install face plate, and handle, etc. Note, others had given me estimates of a low of $500 up to over $1K. We found Blessed Plumbing also on the Blue Pages (Christian yellow pages) and were very confident with his work. He even gave some other suggestions on issues we were having (water hammer) and offered some maintenance advice on our aging sump pump. I enjoyed my encounter with this company and would not hesitate to call on them again for any plumbing problem we encounter. It is hard and rare to find honest people/contractors.

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.

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.

How much do new water heaters cost?

The cost of a new water heater depends largely on the type and size of the heater. The average national cost for a new water heater installation including a 40- to 50-gallon tank is $350-$780. Most homes don’t need larger tanks, but they are available — for a price. The average difference between a 50-gallon tank and a 75-gallon tank (the next most common size) ranges from $400 to $600. Hundred-gallon tanks are also available, and they can cost double or triple the price of a 50-gallon tank from the same manufacturer. New water heaters tend to be far more energy-efficient, so they can cut energy costs; homeowners may also be eligible for a new water heater rebate from their local utility company.

Typically, tankless water heaters, which heat water only when you need it, cost more but can save about 25 percent of annual water heating costs, on average. They also lose only 5 percent of their energy compared with a tank unit’s 30 percent energy loss. Note, too, that a water heater with a tank has a life expectancy of 10 years, while tankless units generally last about twice as long.

The final expense to consider is a possible disposal fee to get rid of the old water heater; some companies include it in the price, while others charge an average of $35-$150.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
