I am overly impressed with the quality of work and professionalism. What started out to be what I thought was going to be a simple job, turn out to be a very difficult job with no fault of Hill's plumbing, in fact, if it wasn't for their patience and skill, this would have turned into another day worth of work and more money. I will definitely call on Hill's plumbing in the future. Great Job!

Let me preface this review by stating that I have nothing to gain by writing this review. I am a real estate agent however I have no affiliation with any specific contractors of any type therefore I have nothing to gain by writing this. This review is based solely on my own experience with Bill Lewis for the inspections he performed on my own home. Having said that, I deal with home inspectors all of the time and like any profession there are some that are better then others. I just feel as though credit should be given where it’s due so I’m writing this review from a view point that the average home owner probably doesn’t have because of my active involvement with inspections for my clients. Bill was tremendous in every way possible. Not only did he spend almost 4 hours at our home (not the norm…usually whole house inspections are completed within 1.5-2 hrs). This is a reflection of how very thorough he is. Not only does he have decades of construction experience but he’s also a teacher who knows a ton about every component of home construction. He was very accommodating, patient and took the time to explain all details of his findings using terms easily understandable regarding construction/electrical/plumbing/architecture etc. I can’t stress enough the importance of having someone like Bill who IS certified (many people don’t realize that very often “home inspectors” are not nor do they have to be certified. He performed tests on every aspect of our home and went above and beyond any inspection I’ve ever been a part of. He explained which repairs should take priority and which ones are superficial/cosmetic. We are very pleased with using his services and would vouch for his professional integrity any time. I 110% recommend using Lewis Property Inspection and Contracting for any building service you have.

I hired Joe to do some plumbing work at my home. He was very efficient in replacing an outside hose faucet, plumbing standpipes into my waste stack for 2 existing washing machines. He repaired an older style leaking shower, rebuilt a dripping vanity faucet as well as connected my ice maker and kitchen faucet to a cabinet filtration water system. I highly recommend his services.

Alan was our service technician who we hired to patch a couple spots in the ceiling that had been water damaged. We also hired him to do some plumbing work while he was here. Alan did a great job and we are totally satisfied. He went over and above our expectations in quality and was constantly making sure that we were satisfied. Alan took the time to discuss the project work in detail so we knew exactly what was being done. He even showed me a few things that will help me with other future projects. The costs were very reasonable and I even got a military discount on top!! We will definitely hire Alan for future projects. I highly recommend him and this company.

We needed help with our walk-in closet remodel. He came to our home at the agreed time and reviewed the project asking questions to ensure he understood what we wanted. He actually returned the next day to do some minor repairs in the ½ bath and kitchen. We received a written estimate for our project within two days. He removed two sconce wall lights and installed two can ceiling lights. Put both of these lights on the same wall switch so they would both turn on at the same time. He also recessed the plumbing from the prior vanity into the wall. Expert service and extremely reasonable. He discussed everything he did to ensure it was completed as desired and thoroughly answered all of my questions. Now I am able to start painting and my new floor will be installed upon delivery. I would definitely contact him for our next project.

Two master plumbers responded to my emergency after normal work hours without charging extra for an evening repair. They used a video camera probe to quickly find the leaking water pipe. That instrument required only a small hole in the drywall that they later repaired as well as fixing the ruptured pipe. I was so impressed with their professionalism and service that I asked them to make several other plumbing repairs on my home. Wayne Stephens and Burttle Napier are not only excellent plumbers but people with integrity who took great care of me. I have shared their names with family and friends. They will be my go to plumbers in the future.

Steve has experience in all forms of handyman services. We were able to go from plumbing, to electric work, to water valves, all the way to exterior brickwork. It has been an easy partnership working with Steve and I recommend his work to anyone.

Keith showed up promptly, was very thorough in his explanations of the plumbing and electric problems we had, and gave us multiple options for repair based on our desired budget. He also jumped in and helped with a light fixture install at the last minute, for the same hourly rate. Very professional and did quality work!

I was introduced to John Corry by Randy Best, one of the top commercial real estate brokers in Columbus, which says a lot about John's dependability. I acquired a 24 unit building in South Columbus and John was there to help me rehab each unit one by one. He also did a great deal of welding work on a series of exterior steel porches that needed extensive repairs. John can pretty much do anything including HVAC, plumbing and electric as well as general handyman work, and he does it well and for a reasonable price. One of his greatest assets is that I can trust him to go in and quote a project, send me before and after pictures, and get it down in a reasonable amount of time, all while I am out of state, which says a lot about his trustworthiness and reliability.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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 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.

How much does it cost to fix a hot water heater?

Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400 or more. Water heater repair costs will depend on the type of water heater you have (tankless, electric, natural gas, etc.), the source of the problem, the cost for new parts, and labor rates in your area. Common water heater issues include problems with the thermocouple, thermostat, heating element and leaks. Most standard electric water heaters have two thermostats and two elements. One example for the cost to replace a bad thermostat is $185 for parts and labor. Replacing both the thermostat and the heating element could cost approximately $150-$200. The thermocouple is a safety device that senses when the pilot light is burning and signals the gas valve to close if the pilot light goes out. If your thermocouple is bad or corroded, the average cost to clean and repair it could be between $350 and $400. If your water heater has started to leak, it is usually more cost-effective to invest in a new water heater than to repair it, unless you’re covered by a warranty.
