BEST PLUMBER EVER! I was so frustrated after contacting 9 plumbers when we had no hot water. Rooter Pros called me back IMMEDIATELY and came out the next day! They did a great job removing and capping my old tankless in the basement and installing a new water heater in the garage and all for a reasonable price. They even called me later in the day to make sure everything was ok. Roy’s 20+ years of experience were very evident in several things he pointed out to me. I HIGHLY recommend them and will definitely use them for all my future plumbing needs.

Had a leak from my shower. They determined it was just water running down behind the spout and not a broken pipe. It just needed to be chalked. They also installed a new kitchen sink faucet and a new above the stove microwave. They were quick and professional. They did a great job.

Brad did a really a very good job. He is very polite and completed the job in a timely manner. He installed a shut off on my main water line and repaired a leaking single handle shower faucet. He was very neat and cleaned up after himself. His price was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend him for your plumbing needs.

Our house was built in the 1940's and had the original cast iron and some of the original fixtures. We contract to have them completely remodel the downstairs bathroom. The layout of the original bathroom was awkwardly designed and it did not allow for aging in place. We met with the estimator and the plumbers to design a bathroom that will allow us to stay in this home as we age. They completely gutted the bathroom and replaced all the cast iron pipes and old copper water lines. They installed and completed the drywall and mud process, painted the walls, installed new cabinets, fixtures, accessories and artwork. They also installed a new bathroom door and the hardware. We loved what they did with this bathroom so much that we contracted with them to remodel the upstairs bathroom. The upstairs bathroom is much smaller and had the original cast iron tub and fixtures including the commode, as well as cast iron drain pipes and old copper lines. They came in and gutted this bathroom and installed a tub that is big enough for my 6'2" teens to soak in when they want to take a bath. They completed the drywall and mud process, painted the walls, installed new fixtures, cabinets, accessories and artwork. They also installed a new bathroom door and hardware and a new window treatment. During the demolition of the two bathrooms, the plumbers took steps to keep the debris and dust out of the rest of the house. They hung plastic, lined the hardwood floors with protective paper, carried off their trash and swept up every day before leaving. When we began to remodel our kitchen, we could only think of one contractor that we would want to use for the plumbing and installation of the new fixtures. While the walls were open, they came and replaced all the cast iron pipes and drains and installed a new dishwasher drain. Once the cabinets had been installed, they came back and installed the new kitchen faucet, an ice-maker line and the dishwasher. They were always on time and kept to the timeline agreed upon at the beginning of each job. We would recommend them to others and will definitely call them for all our future plumbing needs.

I called north shore plumbing because I had no cold water in my kitchen and also wanted to fix the ice maker in my fridge that wasn't hooked up. Tyler came and fixed everything perfect. Also while he was at my home I mentioned that the day before I had a new well installed and my water was muddy looking. Without hesitation Tyler went to the well house and within min figured out what the problem was and fixed that problem also. Everything was professional and I will call north shore for all my plumbing needs.

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 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.

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.
