Mike repaired water-damaged ceiling tiles in my basement. I could NOT be happier! Mike was PROMPT in the initial reply, MORE than willing to talk by phone, VERY easy to talk to, also willing to communicate by text (and did so VERY well) and CLEARLY understood what I was saying, VERY clear in what he needed me to know. The estimate he gave me was spot-on. He was prompt in every reply, prompt in his arrival, efficient and quick in his work. He'd said he thought he could complete the work in the same day, and did. He was happy to observe the HE LEFT **NO MESS.** Polite, personable, kind. I have already tentatively scheduled more work with him in the summer (floor vinyl tile replacement). I'd glad to know him, entirely happy with his work, and looking forward to working with him more.

Refreshing!! Will definitely call again when I need work done. Thank you.

We hired Mr. Bates to repair a broken water line to our refrigerator that had caused damage to our flooring, wall and molding behind the refrigerator, cabinet beside, and others. My request included the repair of the fridge, repair to all damaged areas, and painting the entire kitchen along with ceilings and trim. Mr. Bates was fast to respond to my request. He was prompt in scheduling a time to come out to the house to provide us with a quick and comprehensive quote. We asked for a specific work timeline and he adhered to it. He stayed within the quote given and completed all the work in a week. I would recommend Mr. Bates for your water repairs or home repairs.

I would like to give a shout out to my Thanksgiving savior Tony Ramsey. When my well got run over by a vehicle and Progressive didn't understand the importance of water, Tony and his team did. I inquired online the night it happened. The next day I had his phone number and was able to contact him via voice and texting. Even though I saved the wrong number and did not give him the information I promised the next morning when I didn't see him I was able to call him. I sent him my address and he was at my house with an estimate with in 30 min the day before thanksgiving. With in an hour he had his crew digging out my well. With in 4 hours we had water!!!!!! The job was completed. He even followed up 2 days later and asked me if everything was working alright. THIS IS THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD WITH A CONTRACTOR IN MY HOME. If every company had the integrity Tony has for his company and his name the world would be a better place! Thank you again for making our holiday and understanding the importance of our situation. You will always be the first caller on my list. Sincerely Cassie Maddox Ware

Mr. McKinney was punctual, very professional, and did a wonderful job installing a new water heater in a rental home I own. Because the job turned out to be more challenging than originally expected, he had to go above and beyond to complete the project. I highly recommend both him and his work. I will definitely call him again.

Ralph installed a water line for our refrigerator water and ice maker. He was readily available for an appointment and charged what he quoted me for. He worked fast and he is friendly. We are are pleased with his work and the experience couldn't have gone better! I will be calling him for any future needs!

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
