Carlton came out to my house and was able to maneuver around my junky tool table to fix my water heater. He re-lit the pilot but my ignitor was faulty and after it cycled and he left, the water heater went out. Carlton had already ordered the part I needed and came back a week later after the part was shipped and installed the part. He was upfront with his cost and time.

Excellent job! Very professional and had great attention to detail. He hung an entire house of window blinds into a block home and also fixed the leaking water valve under the kitchen sink. I plan on hiring again for fixture replacement and custom closet build out.

They were not pushy trying to sell their services. Just did whats required and explained what is not. I would definitely hire them again.

Connley replaced our leaking water heater. He was very friendly, helpful and honest. He was flexible when we decided to purchase the water heater ourselves and have him install it. His price was fair, much better than the quote we received from Home Depot. We would give him four and A half stars if we could. We highly recommend Connley for water heater repair or replacement.

Rene is the best! He repaired some hardiplank siding, re-fastened some loose boards, and caulked the joints at our house. The best thing, was that he didnt push the paint job on the hardi-plank on us, which was great. He also repainted our condo, repaired wobbly fan (still barely wobbly, but WAY better...I'm thinking it can't be done any better than what they did), AND he repaired some water damaged laminate without having to redo the entire floors! The best thing, he worked with our budget, super about communication via text, phone, or email, and Quick about getting to projects! I secretly don't want to refer him because his schedule may get more busy, but he's been so great. I have saved him on my phone for future projects, and have been referring him to friends. you won't find a better contractor for the price and flexibility.

I had Jim with A1 Plumbing Repair Specialist come to my house to install all new fixtures before I sold my house. He installed 3 bathroom sink, 2 showers, 1 toilet, 1 kitchen sink and 1 vegetable sink faucet. I had all of the parts already he came in an put everything together and I got more money for putting a few dollars in comparatively. Great work! Will use again at my new house if necessary.

Cost estimate was significantly less than a well known plumbing company in the greater Austin area (e.g $1400) while still replacing the same parts and meeting code standards. Garrett was timely,communicative, efficient, and followed up several days later to ensure the water heater was working properly. Already recommended to our neighbor and will recommend to others.

I talked to Russ a while ago to get a quote for my water heater replacement. I finally got around to it and called him. He was able to accommodate us that very day. Russ did a good job with the installation and was very helpful in giving us instructions of how to maintain it going forward. He was very courteous and professional throughout the process. I would highly recommend him to anyone for their future plumbing needs. He was also very reasonable with his quote. Very happy with the service!

Chad responded quickly with a highly competitive offer. He was able to fit us into his schedule the next day. In addition to fixing our problem, he also did a review of our other sinks, water softener and two hot water heaters. He called with an overview of his findings, but was not pushy about repair work. His professionalism was exemplary and we will be using him again for our plumbing needs! Thanks, Chad! And thanks Thumtack!!

Mr. Reynolds and his crew did a great job repairing the drywall that had been torn out along the bottom of the wall due to water damage. The work was done in a timely manner and to my satisfaction. I would not hesitate to call Oak Ridge Homes Remodeling again for other projects.

    I had an old on demand hot water heater go out and I contacted Danny from an ad on Craig's list. You can never tell what kind of person you will find on Craig's list BUT this time it was very good! Danny replaced the unit and even added an electrical outlet, since the new unit required it, which not something most plumbers would do. The cost was very reasonable. If you have any plumbing repair needs, I would start with A Model Plumbing!

      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.

      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 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.

      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.
