I needed a water valve replaced in my kitchen. After hearing about my situation he made it a point to come by the same day. He not only did an amazing job but he educated me on different things about my home and how to prevent future issues. He definitely has my future business.

Hire this guy...you won't be disappointed!!! Herb did a great job. He is very professional and honest. AND he warranties his work. He came to my house on Wed morning 11/16/2016 to repair a leaking toilet. After completing that repair, he noticed that the tank was leaking through one bolts that secure the tank to the commode. He tightened it up, but said to check it over the next couple of days and if I notice that it is wet underneath the tank, to call him and he would come back and replace the rubber gasket (and apply some silicon around the hole as added measure) at no additional charge. On the way out, I asked if he could remove a broken light bulb base from the socket of my 3-bulb porch light fixture. He was able to complete that task, by disconnecting the wiring and taking down the fixture, in less than 30 minutes.

We needed our ice maker replaced, and Daniel had the experience to know that sometimes it is not JUST the ice maker causing the problem. He was able to replace our water valve also, and things are back on track just like that. We are so glad to have found him!

First time Thumbtack user, and experience exceeded my expectations! Mr. Flores responded so quickly despite logging in to the app so late! I can't say enough about him and his co-worker. Very reasonable, accommodating, and professional! Please give this man an opportunity for a quote, he will not disappoint. SO GLAD I didn't go with Home Depot with my water heater installation. Not only did he save me a lot of money, but I know I still would be waiting on hot water. I even have him in mind for a wish list bathroom project in the future!

CJ came out and replaced the evaporator coil on my unit. Another company had just replaced the evaporator coil last summer and obviously did a terrible job installing it - it was leaking lots of oil. Some people want to leave things unfinished so they can come back and charge you twice for the same job, but these guys get it done right the first time so they don't have to ever come back. CJ did this on a Saturday morning and was finished by noon. Good family business, highly recommend these guys.

Melky installed a kitchen faucet and fixed a door frame for me. He arrived on time. He identified the kitchen water leaking problem precisely. He is very knowledgeable and have lots of experience. I bought a wrong type of faucet, he helped to go to Home Depot with me to find a right one. He did high quality works. I was very pleased about his works. I recommend him and I will hire him again for other works.

We are first time homebuyers and not "handy" at all. I'm a drama queen and my husband is a penny pincher so you can imagine when our water heater went out what kind of bind it put us in. We were able to buy a new water heater from a friends company and Mr Walter was able to come out the next day to install for us! Him and his partner were so nice, got the job done great and very affordable in comparison to a few other quotes w

Called because my mother was having what she felt was a major water leak under her kitchen sink. Brandon was out at her home the next day and on time which was wonderful. He looked over the issue and explained to us what needed to be done and that he had all the parts on him to make the repairs. With in an hour he had it all repaired and cleaned up. Mom was so happy and felt happy she paid less with Plumb Crazy than she thought she would and would use him again..

I had a leak coming from the main pipe coming from the water meter. All other plumbers wanted so much more to do the work because they needed to destroy the sidewalk and repave it. Willie found an ingenious way of doing the job without destroying the sidewalk and cost less than half of the other guys. He also was very descriptive of the work that would be done and got it done in a professional manner. Would definitely recommend!

I would recommend JCA to anyone needing a professional plumber. He was punctual, professional and good work quality. Hired him to install a toilet in upstairs bathroom that had a crack in toilet tank. He was very mindful of making sure not to bump walls or cabinets with moving and install of toilet and cleaned up very well during and after job completed. Had trouble with seating of toilet and he had to work several hours over than the typical install of 1 hr to 1 1/2.hr. It took over 4 hrs but he stayed with it. He had to leave but came back next day to complete the job. He even cut into his family time on a Sunday to finish the job.. and after all the difficulty not fault of his own.. he did not even attempt to raise his quoted bid. This plumber stands by his work and word. My deceased father in law was a plumber in San Antonio for over 50 yrs and pride himself on his workmanship and professional word... and would have been proud of JCA.

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.

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 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.

How much does it cost to fix a hot water heater?

Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400 or more. Water heater repair costs will depend on the type of water heater you have (tankless, electric, natural gas, etc.), the source of the problem, the cost for new parts, and labor rates in your area. Common water heater issues include problems with the thermocouple, thermostat, heating element and leaks. Most standard electric water heaters have two thermostats and two elements. One example for the cost to replace a bad thermostat is $185 for parts and labor. Replacing both the thermostat and the heating element could cost approximately $150-$200. The thermocouple is a safety device that senses when the pilot light is burning and signals the gas valve to close if the pilot light goes out. If your thermocouple is bad or corroded, the average cost to clean and repair it could be between $350 and $400. If your water heater has started to leak, it is usually more cost-effective to invest in a new water heater than to repair it, unless you’re covered by a warranty.

How much does it cost to install a tankless hot water heater?

Tankless water heaters usually cost more to install than traditional tanks, because many homes need to be retrofitted to accommodate the new system. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $150 and $1,200, and tankless natural gas water heaters retail between $200 and $1,300 on average. The lower prices ($150-$250) are generally for point-of-use tankless heaters that can be installed to boost hot water in high-demand areas such as the bathroom or kitchen sink. Tankless water heaters designed to heat whole homes usually start under $300 at the low end and go up to $1,400 or more. Pricing for whole-home varies with the heater’s technology and features. Nationally, standard water heater installation costs average $360-$780, but tankless water heater installation costs may range from $400 to $1,000, depending on the work needed. Some perks of tankless water heaters are that they have nearly double the life expectancy of traditional water heaters and are generally more cost-efficient. Homeowners may be able to save $100 or more per year on their utility bills with an Energy Star approved tankless heater, depending on how much hot water they use.
