Mark was great. He replaced the original light fixture on a house that's almost 100 years old. The work was challenging with old electric wiring. The new chandelier looks great. His price was very fair. I already have other jobs in mind for him. I highly recommend.

I'd hire JB Weaver again in an instant. It's the best experience I've had in hiring someone for home projects. Had a ceiling installed, several plumbing projects completed, painting, flooring and a variety of other general services. Can't say enough about this company.

I cannot say enough about the great experience I had with Miss Unique Home/Business Repairs. I have had some not ideal experiences with other Thumbtack service providers, and this experience was the complete opposite. Samantha, communicated promptly, was able to provide me with complete details of the service, her time of arrival, and managed my expectations for the project. When Samantha arrived, she assessed our plumbing situation and provided detail on the repair process and the timeline to complete. Our repair took multiple days that spanned a holiday weekend, but Samantha was able there to complete the project. Samantha replaced our gaskets on two toilets (she provided the gaskets), she diagnosed our leaking ceiling and made appropriate repairs to fix the issue. Her pricing was ½ of what we were quoted by a popular regional plumbing service. After this great experience, I have Samantha on speed-dial. Miss Unique Home/Business Repairs will be the first person I call with any plumbing needs!

Used thumbtack for the first time and selected JC Mechanical to repair our boiler. Jason came when promised and was able to complete the repair. He didn't try to sell us a bunch of unneeded services. He was straight to the point and delivered as promised. We will be using him again in the future for our Hvac & plumbing needs. We recommend this company.

Jon was able to diagnose a leak issue in my basement that stumped three other plumbers and drove me crazy for months. He was honest (others said things like I would have to replace the entire cast iron system) and saved me money. He was punctual, friendly and great with communication and flexibility. I can’t rave enough. I highly recommend him and will be sticking with him anytime I need any plumbing work done in the future.

I needed a contractor to refurbish a 15 year old townhouse prior to selling. It was a rental property 45 miles away, so I needed someone to manage and execute the entire job (about $15K worth) mostly unsupervised. Dale did an excellent job, and stayed on the job (more than 2 weeks) until everything was done. It required many skills (patching, painting, flooring, electrical, plumbing, cleaning, staining (deck), landscaping, and hauling.) He literally gave my townhouse a "New Image" inside and out, with great curb appeal. Dale was completely trustworthy, and I highly recommend him for any job you have.

Steve was communicative as well as Jessica who set up the time of installation. The overall price was slightly below other estimates for what we wanted. Jim who did the installation was a seasoned plumber with over 30 yrs. exp. He was courteous, on time, clean and answered all my questions and completed the job in about an hour. Overall, this experience was professional and no hassle. I highly recommend PlumbCrazy for quality and efficient work for your plumbing needs. Thank you to all who were involved with this process!

Rich helped us with our kitchen remodel project in our town home in West Chester, Pennsylvania. The project included removal of half of a wall, and installation of ceramic tile flooring, hardwood cabinets, and appliances, including all accompanying electrical and plumbing work. The job is still in progress, as we are waiting on additional parts to be delivered from the cabinet company. Rich is very flexible and easy to work with. He was able to answer any questions we had about the project and provide advice from his professional experience. Overall, Rich was a polite and trustworthy guy who has been a pleasure to work with. His prices are fair and from what we have seen so far, the quality of his work is excellent.

We had leaking pipes under a guest house that had not been used in a few years. We found Greg on Thumbtack. We talked on Sunday night and agreed on an hourly rate. He was at the house Tuesday (arrived a little early even!). He fixed a couple of split pipes and pressurized the system. He found additional issues with the HW heater valves and a leaking trap in the bathroom. With each issue he asked, "Do you want me to fix that?" There was never pressure to spend more than required. Greg was very professional. I am somewhat handy around the house and in the past I would have done this myself. Greg's price was very reasonable - he gets the call next time I have any sort of plumbing issue! I know it is done right and I didn't have to do the work!

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.  

Follow these additional tips for confidently hiring a plumber or other skilled professional.
