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!!

John always does a top quality job. He has done house inspections for my real estate customers and is very thorough with his inspection and delivers a email report with excellent pictures of the items inspected. He also is a precision painter. He can paint without taping and still not mess up the lines. He also does electrical work, plumbing, etc. All is done with great expertise. His work and knowledge of the workings of houses is top shelf.

I contacted Matt and told him it was not an urgent issue but my shower drain was running slow. I told him if he could come out in the next week or two it would be nice, he was able to come out the next day and diagnose the drain issue and fix it. Had him look at other plumbing projects on the to do list. Would recommend.

I like working with them because they give you the 411 on things they notice that need attention next and discuss options with you. These guys are very professional and friendly and guarantee their work and will come out as many times as it takes to help you resolve plumbing issues. They are courteous and respectful and very knowledgeable. They are "wallet friendly" also.

Tim was prompt and professional. He was very thorough in trying to find the source for our water problem and recommended what should be done. He even identified some other issues that we were not aware needed to be fixed along with a time frame for when they should be addressed and an estimate. We will definitely call Kobella again. We've used other plumbing services before but either weren't pleased with the results, were overcharged or felt taken advantage of. None of that with Kobella.

Daniel was extremely professional and knowledgeable of the plumbing situation and was able to get it fixed in no time. He has great pricing and even stayed to ensure everything was working properly before taking any sort of payment. He was willing to take a look at other projects I needed help with even though he only came for one job.

Got the job done for the quoted price, and he made sure the sink drained without any issues. Was honest and didn't try to up-sell us. Better prices than the big-chain plumbing companies.

Recently purchased a home in Rocky River, and had two plumbing related issues. Matt was able to come out same day even on short notice after 5. The kitchen sink was stopped up and would drain, and Matt had that working within minutes upon arrival. The larger issue was a leak from an unknown source. Not only did they find the leak, but they found mold damage that otherwise would have gone undetected. I purchased the home within the last 90 days, and my home inspector missed it. These guys were definitely more thorough than him, and I would recommend and use them for every future plumbing related job I have. When asked about services they felt were beyond their scope they didn't just try and wing it, and instead directed me to someone they felt could provide a better service for remediation. That is when I knew Matt truly cared about the job, and not just making a buck. You never know what you'll get when using someone from Thumbtack, but these guys were great.

Eric responded promptly, was on time & did a professional job. His bill was higher than expected but he worked on plumbing repair which he charged more per hour than general handymen repair. Would use again & recomend to others.

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.

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 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.
