These fine gentlemen were very accommodating with the labor required to install a new water heater. They kept us informed of changes in schedule and even provided invaluable insight for future reference of plumbing issues to watch out for. They were courteous and professional, very easy to work with and took the time to explain what would need to be done, new materials required, and existing materials that could be reused to save a little. The best part was the fact that they came and got the job done in a little over an hour A DAY EARLIER THAN EXPECTED! No one likes a cold shower, so when Scott said he could be here the same day we couldn't have been happier! I will be calling them again for sure! Great job!!

Michael Zaller is someone I am definitely going to hire again. He arrived on time and did the job as quoted and was a real pleasure to work with. We asked his advice on some other plumbing and remodeling projects and he discussed ways we could make improvements. Now I'm anxious to have him get started already!

Bordeaux Construction Services did an outstanding job on a water damage repair job for my currently leased home. I believe the price was just right especially for the quick response from Lee. The home had first floor drywall damage caused by a plumbing leak in the 2nd floor master bath. Lee contacted me within 30 minutes of my quote request on Thumtak.com and asked to take a look at the water damage to the property two days later, on a Saturday, in order to provide a quote for the repair. After confirming with the tenant, we solidified the time. I was so happy with the expedited response and his response to me in general on the website that I then explained the problem to the best of my knowledge. I wanted a single general contractor to take care of my problem! It is such a pain dealing with multiple contractors for a repair job. I asked if Lee would could find the leak, repair it and the damaged drywall. He told me he would definitely do his best to fix the problem but he really needed to look at it first. I authorized him to do what he could. When Lee showed up at the property on Saturday, he did just that. He removed the damaged drywall, inspected the master bath plumbing, troubleshot by testing the bathtub plumbing and found the leak. He repaired the plumbing on the spot. He explained to the tenant they needed to allow time for the water in the ceiling to dry and for the repair to cure. On Monday, he called the tenant and asked them to test the repair. All went well and he scheduled the drywall repair two days later. The ceiling is dry wall with knock-down plaster which can be extremely hard to match in the middle of the ceiling. The tenant was extremely happy with the workmanship. I couldn't be more happy with his efforts as a property owner who is currently deployed overseas. He turned a truly stressfull situation for myself and the tenant family into a total success. Thank you Lee!

I had a very broad question about my new house and these guys were able to get over here the very next day. The rate they quoted me for was honestly way lower than it should have been and they spent a good amount of time with me, walking through the issues I was wondering about. Will certainly work with them again, whenever I face a plumbing, heating, or cooling issue.

When Marvin the plumber arrived, he very politely introduced himself and proceeded to examine the kitchen sink drain which is where I was having the problems. After a free assessment of what needed to be done, in this case to snake out the drain, he told me what the price would be and asked if I felt it was a fair price and would I agree to him continuing to proceed with the work. At that point I gave him the okay to commence work. He proceed snaking out the drain so that I would not have water backing up into the kitchen sink. He was very neat, quick, and professional through the entire process. He explained to me exactly what he was doing as he was doing each step in order to free up the clog. When he was through, he cleaned up after himself, replaced items that he needed to move out of place, and made sure that I was satisfied with the results. And I must say, I was extremely satisfied and very impressed with the work that Marvin did. At that point, I promptly paid him for the work performed, thanked him profusely, and assured him that I would most certainly be employing him again in the future for any plumbing needs that may arise. I must say, this is the second person that I had employed through thumbtack.com and I am extremely pleased with the quality of professionals your website attracts.

This was for a dryer vent cleaning for rental move out. The dryer duct and outside vent were on the the second floor, which was not a problem for the tech. A bristle head on a long plastic flex rod was attached to a power tool adds used to thoroughly clean the duct which was about 6 feet long. Greg continued to clean the duct until no more dust came out or was visible. No complaints!

Mr. Vanhoose, "Capn Larry" is a handyman extraordinaire. He has worked on two different houses for me, one my Mother's house and the other my own. On my Mother's house he replaced wood paneling that had damage due to a roof leak. He also went way beyond and helped to semi-remodel her bathroom making it warmer and more functional. He put in a ceramic surround making the gas fireplace more safe and beautiful. In my house he has gone beyond to research how to put in an engineered wood floor. It looks just beautiful. In addition, has has worked on two of my bathrooms and my kitchen. Great plumbing as well as tile work. He is pretty prompt, honest, and hard working. Ladies (and gents), he may look like a geezer, however, he is a gentleman.

    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.

    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.

    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.
