Used Mike on a couple of different plumbing jobs... one for a Moen bath tub valve replacement and another for a leaking air conditioner over flow line. He knew exactly what the issue was for both jobs and completed them both quickly. He is very pleasant and easy to communicate with (email, text or phone).

Jason arrived on time. Did a really good job with setting the shelving system. I noticed i had made a mistake in some measurements and he had the tools to help correct that mistake. He sorted the plumbing issues as well I will recommend him and will definitely call Jason for future work.

Chris did a great job! Came over on a Saturday for a plumbing project. It ended up taking much longer than expected (due to me changing what I wanted) and he knocked the project out with no problem at all! Thanks for everything. Great work.

I’d give Jernigan’s 20 stars if I could. BEST customer service, PERFECT work and very reasonably priced. My husband and I loved Mike (the owner) the second we met him. He was our first quote and we knew immediately we wanted him to do the work. I’ve NEVER hired any company without getting at least 3 quotes and usually 5. We wanted to find a plumber to move our washer and dryer from the first floor to the second floor. If this went well, we planned on hiring them to do our master bath full gut and re-plumb project. Mike and Curtis worked their magic, they had to maneuver quite a bit to get the plumbing moved upstairs. They cut as little as possible sheetrock out, plumbed everything perfect and left our house spotless. Super nice guys. Cris, who handles all the invoicing and appointment scheduling was so quick at responding to my questions and requests. We had to work the plumbers around the electrician and handyman. She had them come at the exact time I needed to get this all done. EXCELLENT customer service which is somewhat rare these days. We hired them again a few days later to install an icemaker in our pantry. PERFECT job again!!! And they are coming back out tomorrow, our A/C went out and it had to do with a plumbing issue (caused by someone else a year ago). They are slammed right now but Cris worked us in so we wouldn’t cause damage to our HVAC. In a month or two we are hiring them to completely gut and re-plumb our master bath. There’s no other company I would trust with this. Mike and Curtis are THE BEST and Cris will take care of any questions I have. I don’t give great reviews unless the company deserves it. If you have any plumbing issues, this is your company! AMAZING work, service and price!!! My husband I LOVE this company!!!!

I needed to hire a painter for my place of business which is a hair salon. I hired Jose and he was just fantastic! His communication was very thorough and he was on time and he did a wonderful job. I actually needed him to repaint the room from a prior painter who did a very sloppy job. Jose made my room look bright and beautiful and on top of it he cleaned everything so thoroughly. He wanted to leave my room spotless and I could tell he took a lot of pride in his services. I was very impressed with his work and I have already hired him to do a plumbing job next in my salon. He is the nicest guy you want to work with and he has an excellent work ethic. He is very upfront and honest he will tell you what he can or cannot do and his prices are very fair. Jose is going to be my go to guy for any handyman work I need in my salon going forward. I highly recommend him for whatever your handyman needs maybe. This man is a true professional!

I had an emergency sewer overflow and went to thumbtack inc for help. I received two offers back for immediate service on a Friday afternoon. Although I clicked on the first coming through I happened to notice two ratings on Diamond plumbing. Both were complaining about the $90 service fee for an estimate. Somehow many have lost site that a business has to buy and maintain a vehicle; pay insurance, gas and employee costs just to give you an estimate! I was grateful to see these reasonable rates and fast response from this company. I'll definitely give them a try if I need plumbing service in the future.

Another plumber left us hanging for a week with a broken water heater and a series of broken promises. Everflow Plumbing rescued us from another weekend of no hot water. They squeezed us into their busy schedule and delayed their own weekend so we wouldn't be uncomfortable. Very nice people with a great product.

Chad Jackson is a great plumber and is very reasonably priced. He replaced the old 5pc faucet in our tub/shower to a newer 3 pc set. He kept us informed of what he was doing as he worked and we are very pleased with his work. I would definitely recommend him, and we will be calling him again for any future plumbing issues.

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.
