Repair of water line between meter & house. They responded the same day & worked after dark to repair it. Impressive response, work attitude, and value. Would definitely call again. They tell me they also do plumbing inside the house. Give them 5 stars.

We had a sink stopped up and he was able to get to us the next day, even on a Sunday. Zach great at communicating when he would arrive. He was quick with his work, cleaned up everything when he was done. The sink works perfectly now. We highly recommend his work and we will call him again for other plumbing projects.

We hired C.S. to do some electrical outlet wiring in our kitchen island and pantry. They came on time and were very professional. We liked that they listened to what we needed done and explained how they would do it. The job was completed in good time and we were happy with the results. We asked them to come back for some plumbing work.

Mike built a tile walk-in shower in our basement. This involved moving a toilet which I didn’t know could be done. It turned out beautiful. He also completely renovated our master bathroom. Again, he was able to solve building issues and give us exactly what we wanted. We now have a large soaking tub with porcelain tile walls and surround. He handled all the electrical and plumbing. Outside resources handled the custom cabinets and vanity tops, and Mike brought it all together. He also installed a new cabinet in our laundry room with a new sink, faucet, and garbage disposal. There were other jobs that he did for us around the house. Some were updates to a 30-year old home, and the others were embellishments. One of the most important things about Mike is that we felt comfortable with him in our house even when we weren’t home. He is an honest family man. One thing that could be better—paperwork. Getting all the paperwork and receipts was a slow process. But I know he is converting to a new computerized system to handle this, so I would not expect this to be a problem in the future.

Glad to have found Loveday plumbing. I was amazed at the responsiveness. Called him around 1:00 PM that I needed a new water heater. He arrived at about 8:00 PM with a new heater. He had to reconfigure the piping in my house and stayed until he completed the job. I highly recommend using him as I will certainly again should the need arise.

I am very happy with the plumbing work that I had done with Saw Dogs. He was very professional, arrived on time, and was reasonably priced. He was very knowledgeable and had a lot of experience in all types of home repairs. I felt comfortable with him working in my home unattended. I will definitely be using Saw Dawgs for future home repairs!!

First I would like to say, CH was very professional, quick response to our call and flexible to meet our scheduling needs. Adam, that works with CH actually did the plumbing work, changed out 2 toilets and installed a new kitchen faucet. Then he also installed a new light fixture for us. We have hired them to return to change out old cast iron pipes for us next week. Pleasant and works quickly as well as doing a great job. Oh and cleaned up well after each area was complete.

Randall was wonderful to work with. From start to finish he was a great communicator and very honest and friendly. I chose him because of his very fair price, but more because of how comfortable I felt talking to him. He was very flexible on scheduling with me, and I had to reschedule once and he worked with me, no problem. He did quality, quick work and made sure I was happy before he requested payment. And, my dog liked him, which tells me a lot about a person! :) If I need any plumbing or handyman type work done in the future I will DEFINETELY choose to work with him again.

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.
