Quick hot water heater replacement. Only problem was that he didn't turn off the main water supply, which normally wouldn't have been a problem, except my pipes were old and the supply line broken when trying to disconnect it. I had several gallons of water sprayed all over my garage and stuff in the garage. He was able to turn the water off quickly limiting the damage, but it would have been nice if he would have started by shutting the main water supply off. He did give me a slight discount for the ordeal so that was nice.

The guys were amazing from the initial call/conversation through the completion of the job! The galvanized pipe from my house to the water meter broke and I needed a plumber fast. They were out the next day and found the problem, gave me a quote on the spot and were out a few days later to compete the job. They arrived when they said they would arrive and communicated very well throughout the process. I'd highly recommend them!

Alf repaired a damaged pipe under the bathroom sink for us to ensure it passed inspection since we were selling our condo. He was on time, courteous, professional, got the job done quickly and found an alternative that saved a few dollars.

First of all let me say that we were very satisfied and impressed with the work we had done. Mike (MT Plumbing owner) responded immediately to our two water crises (broken water heater & leaking shower faucet). After replacing water heater we had a vibration problem and Mike responded immediately back to our home & fixed the problem to our complete satisfaction. Mike and his crew cleaned up after his work and was professional in his demeanor at all times. We will surely call him again

    Paul is extremely professional. When Paul contacted me I informed I had water damage in the kitchen and was looking to get the Kitchen subfloor repaired as soon as possibe so I could begin laying Laminate. My initial contact with him went so well I decided to ask if he could install my laminate floors. He took the time and adjusted his schedule so he could get my project finished on a weekend! Very impressed as I can tell the customer comes first with Paul. -Brian Heath

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
