I knew I needed to have my toilet unbolted from the floor due to nylon washers that had failed but I didn't know if there were any extra issues under the toilet that led to the washers failing. So I decided to skip the diy avenue and hired Agape. I hired James at 8:00 a.m. for the job and he was at my home working at 9:30 a.m. ready to work. James answered all my questions respectfully and showed me what was causing water to leak from my toilet washers. James had the toilet fixed and placed in a better position to keep the issue from reoccurring and fixed an issue with my main water line that was causing the tank on said toilet to fill constantly. The work took him 2 and a half hours with 30 minutes to drive to the hardware store. He did not waste a single second of time on personal matters and my total cost not including parts was the same as other plumbers were charging hourly. Needless to say, I was very happy with the work and plan on hiring Agape again for a few other projects . Thanks you James!

Mayes Plumbing goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy with the job done even calling to verify there are still no issues a few days after completing the work. We had several smaller pipes replaced with correctly sized PEX and a tankless hot water heater installed with recirculation which works perfectly so we have almost instant hot water where it matters. Good people highly recommended!

We bought a home in Gaston and moved in 1 week ago. After discovering the water heater wasn't working and found various leaks around our home, we called Joseph. He came out early the next day and has spent the past couple days getting our plumbing issues taken care of. He does great work and is honest with you. I highly recommend him!

He was very polite and punctual. He called ahead of time to let me know he would be on the way. He did an awesome job diagnosing my dryer and dishwasher. He gave me the options for repair and replacement. I will use his services again in the future and recommend him to others!

Stephen Washington from Gene Love made everything happen that I was hoping and expecting. I had a large amount of work/renovations done to my house that included All new plumbing, sewer and main water line, All new HVAC tubing, and updated electric to my 80 year old home. Stephen really cares about his job and especially the customer. This is rare this day and age as it seems like everything is more expensive and customer service is non existent in most companies which make the customer feel hopeless and like they have no voice. Not with Stephen and Gene Love. They worked around my Night shift Schedule, being very polite and attentive towards the customer's needs. Stephen is a tough negotiator but they were extremely fair with the price and do very high quality work. You cannot beat Gene Love, they do it all. If a plumbing issue arises during the HVAC work, they do not leave you hanging, they just phone the office and a plumber fixes it right away. They are ahead of the curve with their business model. If you are getting any work done underneath your house you would be a fool to call anybody but Gene Love since they do it all!

Extremely attentive to details and always interested in the client's ultimate satisfaction, Adam Morton is a true craftsman. He is thorough and painstaking, and the quality of his work speaks for itself. He has so far fixed everything for me from moving a hot water heater outdoors to a shed he built and weather-proofed, to replacing 11 ft tall ceiling panels, from restoring faulty electricity wiring, to fixing our dishwasher, from replacing broken panes of glass to investigating our foundation issues and brainstorming a practical and affordable approach to solving the long-term problems we have issues with. In general he is always on time barring a family emergency, and he is always totally reliable. I can and do trust him to come into my home to do work even if I am not here. In a nutshell? I highly recommend Adam to anyone seeking a hands on, no nonsense approach to home repair. He truly is outstanding!

      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.

      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 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.

      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.
