I was in need for someone to contact me quickly and come help me sort out a water leak that materialized itself as a water stain on the ceiling. I was only going to be home for the weekend and I was not having much luck with standard plumbers. Tony emailed me right back with an offer to come out right away to look it over and give me a free estimate. I checked out the reviews he had from other customers and it just felt like this guy was the kind of guy I could trust. He showed up and went right to work troubleshooting the problem using very understandable logic. Water leaks can be tricky to isolate but Tony did a good job with minimal sheetrock removal to assess that indeed it was probable the 2nd floor shower drain leaking very slowly. He suggested recaulking the drain with silicon first to see if that would sort out my problem before the more involved solution of cutting into the subfloor to access and replace the drain itself which I really appreciated. That was the kind of troubleshooting I was looking for and it gave me piece of mind. The real bonus with Tony is that he is a real handyman and can do just about anything. He sees all these problems everyday in his regular job as a maintenance guy. I had some electrical switch issues and some exterior rooting wood and he addressed both those issues as well as the leaky shower drain. Tony squeezed me into an already busy weekend in terms of scheduled work on both Saturday and Sunday and there was no weekend upcharge. Tony is a very peronable "average joe" kind of guy you trust very quickly and you are rewarded with good quality work for a very fair price! When you find a guy like Tony Tan the Handyman you have a go to guy for future projects that are not within your ability and even a plumbing leak does not seem so bad. If you have any questions about what I have said please feel free to contact me at (312)594-7552.

I came upon the need for a main line cleanout on a weekend at a commercial property. Cody was out of town, and could not help me. I found another service provider, and spent a bunch of money, but the problem was not fixed. Got Cody to come out first thing on Monday. Awesomeness. He found the real source of the problem, which involved having to cut into a wall to get access to the right drain pipe, fixed the problem, explained why the problem occurred and what needed to be done to insure that it didn't happen again. In hind sight, I should have waited for Cody. Competence, quality service and the right tools make ALL the difference. Thanks for your work, Cody. Now I know who to call when I need some quality work.

Mr. Stephens was able to assess our problem and fix the shower drain leak in our ceiling almost immediately. He was very knowledgeable, efficient and cost effective. During the repair process, he explained what he was doing along the way. He also used quality parts to complete the job and cleaned up after the work was done. I will definitely use his services for any future plumbing project and would highly recommend him.

The original job was to replace two bedroom faucets. Unexpected additional work was needed to replace a sink drain plug and a drain U bend. This included visit to hardware store to get U bend. Dan did the complete job in a smart and timely manner and left the work areas in clean condition. I recommend Dan highly for attitude and aptitude.

My kitchen sink was clogged and would not drain. I spoke with Mr. Cogar last night and he gave me a PHENOMENAL price and came this morning and fixed the issue within an hour. He was prompt, friendly, and had great customer service. I was very pleased with his work and his feedback to help, so this issue will not arise again. If you want an honest company to come and fix your plumbing issues...Cogar is the way to go :-)!!!! Thanks again Cogar Plumbing.

Dan came a few minutes early which was great and removed my entire vanity with vanity top. He even offered to take the unit to the dump for me for a small fee. He worked very quickly and educated me about some things I needed and warned me about the delicate pipes I had coming out of the wall. He even gave me some information about a toilet issue I had in a separate bathroom when I asked him some questions about a noise that was occurring every time I flushed. I would HIGHLY recommend Dan for plumbing work!

White Glove Plumbing solved our problem quickly! He arrived on time, wore covers on his shoes inside our home, and he used a powerful snake to unclog our shower drain. It drains perfectly now! Thank you for a job well done!

I had a leak in my roof between the original roof and an addition that allow water to drain into my utility room through the sheet rock. I had attempted to solve the problem by applying a few layers of roofing cement. Greg came through and removed all of the roofing cement, locating the leak and repair the roof with new shingles and taking out all of the old sheet rock and replacing it with new materials. Then he repaired and painted the ceiling to make it blend in with the rest of the my home. I was more than satisfied with the results and at a very fair price.

I will be keeping this guy in my contacts. He came into a bigger project than we expected thanks to the winter storm. Our crawl space was flooded he went into the water to fix the problem. Far more than what I would have expected from anyone. He even went to our rental house to fix the pipes there. This guy is amazing.

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 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.
