These guys were great. Quick and efficient as well as friendly and helpful. I loved them so much I had them come back for a few more upgrades. They even took some extra time with me to help get my water heater running. Definitely would suggest them to anyone!

I hired Ted 100% because of the reviews he had. I had over 4 different people/companies bid out the project to replace our 50 gal with a 75 gal water heater. They were all about the same price so i went with Ted. He seemed to know what he was doing and has a lot of experience. I can say I'm glad I hired him. He did a really great job and cares about his business relationship with you so I feel confident if anything is wrong he will fix it. He was quick and to the point not necessarily a talkative guy he just likes to get in there and get the job done for you and do a good job.

Such a great experience, where do I start? Our water heater broke. I submitted a request Monday evening for a pro to take a look, and they reached out that same night. I called Tuesday morning to set up a time for them to come check out our water heater. They came that Tuesday afternoon for a consultation. They told us we'd have to replace our water heater, which is what we were expecting. They came prepared with a replacement, so they were able to install the new tank and take our broken one right there during the consultation. All in one day. I had a hot shower this morning and I just couldn't believe how quickly and efficiently they took care of us, communicating each step with us along the way.

He asked to come over the day before he was scheduled in order to do some measurements for the water heater installation, but ended up staying and getting the job done then and there. He was thorough, meticulous and even has a fun sense of humor. Highly recommended!

I was looking for someone with a lot of experience as water was getting into my basement and I didn't know how. I have had other plumbers come out and be unsuccessful in finding the problem, but they still charge for the visit. But Gilbert came out and quickly figured out the problem and then fixed it - for even less than his original bid. My wife said he was very punctual, very friendly, and very honest. I will be calling Gilbert for my plumbing needs from now on.

I’m really happy with the work from josh with quantum hvac, he retrofit a furnace, coil, and new water heater in my home. Josh informed me we had to cut a hole in the drywall But he was quick to call and have the hole patched. As well he stayed late to finish to make sure me and my family were comfortable.

I have worked with Kore Investments on several home improvement projects. In this case they replaced 2 old doors with new ones. We live in an older home without standard door sizes. They did a professional job in manually cutting and fitting the doors. They look like they were custom made for our 1941 home. They were quick and efficient from quote to invoice. I would highly recommend Kore Investments to anyone looking to do a home improvement or maintenance project. They've done everything from updating electrical, replacing windows with doors, installing a water heater, and now replacing 2 exterior doors. The knowledge and expertise of Matt LeMelle and his team is extensive. There is no home project I wouldn't consult and hire them for.

Tim with Water Heater Specialists was an easy choice when I posted a job for a water heater replacement. He replied very quickly with a quote and a water heater option. A few more messages back and forth through the app and I had an appointment setup without ever talking on the phone. Other responders wanted me to call them even though I had provided pictures and ample information detailing what I needed. Tim arrived on time and communicated both through the app and text message (I didn’t pick up when he called, oops) when he was on his way. He worked quickly and finished in just over an hour. He left behind a nice clean installation as well as laminated tags indicating what lines to turn off in the event of an emergency (my wife was excited about this). Tim was very personable, friendly, and easy to work with. If I ever have the need, I look forward to working with him again and highly recommend him.

I hired Steve to install a kitchen faucet and garbage disposal. Not only was he prompt in his initial response/quote, but he showed up on time, completed the work quickly, and was far less than his competition. After finishing his work, he waited an extra 30 minutes at no charge while an installer from RC Willey finished our dishwasher ( the water was turned off and Steve wanted to ensure his work was done properly). It won't take long for Pollard Plumbing to build their business as they're honest, prompt, and and perform quality work. I'll have Steve back out in the next six months to replace our water heater. Hire Pollard Plumbing and you'll have a plumber for life!

They came and installed a new water heater in my basement and it was a great experience. I went with the tankless water heater option and it works great, so I'm happy with the instillation and the product they ordered for me. Also, the plumber was on time, very nice to deal with, and I had a good understanding of what it would cost before I agreed. Also, I'm not home until after 4, so it was great that they were able to send someone out on my schedule. Overall, it was a really good experience.

Monkey Wrench came out to diagnose and repair and issue with a leaky pressure release valve on my water heater. My own attempt and resolving the issue resulted in making the problem worse on a Sunday night. His team responded quickly the same night and scheduled an appointment very quickly. When his team came out they were very professional and even came with shoe covers to not track any dirt of mud in. They not only fixed the water heater and replaced the valve, but discovered that the PSI coming into the house was nearly double of what it should be. They placed a pressure regulator on the line. The price is right in line with what the repairs should have costs. I would recommend Monkey Wrench to anyone and will go back for any of my future plumbing needs.

Ron came to my house on the weekend to devise a temporary fix for my leaking water heater and spent a lot of time talking through options with me. When he came back for the install, he expertly adjusted the positioning for proper fit. Expeditious and professional work...thanks, Ron.

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
