Verified review

Nolan was able to come to my house on the same day as my inquiry. I needed a new kitchen sink faucet installed to replace a broken one. I was able to disassemble the existing fixture but there was a particular rusted out bolt that I could not undo. Nolan came the next day and was able to remove the bolt and install the new plumbing fixture all under an hour. He is a professional and I enjoyed his method of working; I got a kick out of how he electronically documents the steps involved and posting on Instagram – modern day tech! I will definitely use his services again in the future and don’t hesitate to use him. Based on his cool website, I knew he was going to be a good choice!

Danika plumbing was responsive, timely and communicative. They came, diagnosed the problem and then promptly fixed it. Then they guaranteed it for a year. My only complaint is that they were a bit pricey for what amounted to ~ 1/2 of work. Despite that I would certainly use them again.

Joe and an assistant showed up at my house the same afternoon that I called him to replace a shower/tub diverter valve. He replaced the hot and cold handle stem valves at the same time. It's a 40 year old home, so the plumbing is getting aged. The work was done quickly and professionally. Price was much more than quoted, but I think it was a matter of me not being able to explain what was required. I don't think it was a "Quote low - price high when I get there" thing, but that's why only four stars.

Nick and his associate worked to accommodate my schedule and started working right away. Even though the job turned out to be tougher than expected they handled it and did a great job. They gave me an estimate from my description and it took care of the whole job. I would recommend using Honest Plumbing. Ronald

Fantastic! Art showed up right on time, I told him the details of the problem, and he knew exactly what to do. Took him mere minutes to fix it, because he clearly has the knowledge and experience to handle what the big-name guys swore would be hundreds of dollars, even though I knew it was a simple job for a plumber. See, every place I called before using this app was just predatory, treated me like some dumb broad who doesn't know anything about plumbing. Art was the opposite: honest, straightforward, and reasonable. He quoted me a reasonable price, and verified it when he inspected the plumbing situation. And the price he quoted was never inflated with add-ons or other sneaky ways people can bleed you. He was friendly, professional, punctual, and offered a good value for the job. Absolutely recommend! Next time I need a plumber, I'm calling Art!

To begin, I was really frustrated with the communication. I had a time slot, and about 30 minutes prior to the slot expiring, I hadn't seen or heard from my pro. So I contacted Miss Lynn. She then told me the pro was stuck on another job that had an emergency and we were able to reschedule for the next morning. Not a big deal, but I was annoyed that I had to initiate the conversation and had been at home waiting for almost 3 hours. The next morning, the pro was almost 2 hours late for our reschedule. I was about to give up when he finally arrived. I was again annoyed that I had been waiting since 8am but he began to work promptly. His work was solid, and he was a very nice guy. Ultimately, we decided to schedule him to come back for additional work. In conversation, I was able to understand that Miss Lynn is essentially a scheduling help for a co-op of many independent service provider pros. So it makes sense that there's not really a name of a company, and that her communication is essentially delayed as a third party. Ultimately, because their bid was the the best, we took a chance. And it worked out for us. (This bid was much more reasonable than the $4000+ bid I got from a Plumbing Company on Yelp). But if I had to share some constructive feedback, I would say Miss Lynn and her team could use some profile cleaning up for clarification and professionalism to help us consumers understand that this is in fact an agency / co-op. And that in the future, giving a phone # for direct contact with the pro would help alleviate some issues. Don't count on them to be on time, but you can count on a strong bid and quality work.

Hassan provided outstanding service from start to finish. From the first phone call, listening to our plumbing problem, saying that he would be able to fix our issue, great communication about setting up a time that would work for both of us, giving us a quote, following through, quality work, and just an all around nice guy. We are so glad that we gave H2flow a call. We like to look at reviews and unfortunately couldn’t find any because Hassan is so new to our area. We will definitely call Hassan for any future plumbing needs.

Robert from Big Jerry's was "Johnny-on-the-spot." Technically I guess he was "Robert-on-the-spot." Anyway, mere hours after noticing my water heater had a leak, using the Thumb Tack app and getting a quote from Big Jerry's Plumbing I was back in business with a new, installed water heater. Robert and his son explained what they were doing and answered all of my questions. The water heater itself cost a bit more than quoted. The install, to my understanding, comes with a one year warranty on the work should I need a plumber to come out for issues related to the new water heater. The water heater itself has a six year manufacturer warranty. I plan to use Big Jerry's in the future when I am ready to get an outside faucet bib replaced. I highly recommend for your plumbing needs.

My husband and I couldn't have imagined how wonderful the job TJ and Marvin did for us!! We hired them to - pretty much gut our backyard and deck - remodeling everything for us. They treated or job as if it was their own home. It was so much more than what we hoped for. I would - in a heartbeat - recommend them to anyone. The beautiful work they did for us will be enjoyed for years to come. They leveled our backyard, planted new sod, installed all new fencing, built patio with a fire pit. They tore down and built a new, enlarged deck that wraps around the side of our house. They took out our bedroom window and installed sliding doors to the new deck which looks out onto a beautiful wetland. They installed a new ceiling fan. When we moved into our house 5 years ago, our furnace was in one of our bathrooms. Due to the design of the bathroom, there was no way to cover the opening to the furnace - leaving it an eye sore. They took our the door to the bathroom and installed a smaller door - leaving them room to install a beautiful - barn door style door - closing the opening to the furnace. In the future, any remodeling to our home will be easy, all we'll do is call TJ and Marvin!! If I could, I'd give them 6 plus stars!!

I have found The Handyman Seattle to be very helpful in maintaining my 100-year-old house. Much of the small stuff I can do myself, but I don't do plumbing and electric. Or roof. Jonathon was recently very helpful in putting in a new doorbell. One of the reasons I like Handyman Seattle is that they show up on time. I'm sure I will be calling again.

Mark was very responsive. Came by to give us a quote for the work straight away. We scheduled the job a few days later. Mark showed up on time and did a great job replacing some old galvanized iron pipes with copper. Didn't charge us extra even though the job was more complicated than what we anticipated (a piece of old pipe we weren't planning to replace broke off). Everything works great now and we are very happy. Thanks!

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 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.

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 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.
