What’s an average price for replacing a water heater in Hoboken? 30 gallon short boy, electric. I think I’m being hosed.

I agree with replacing the plumbing if the wall is apart. Better safe than sorry. If you guys are anyone else has recommendations of a good plumber please let me know.

if you are going to smash tile and replace the Wonderboard you really should have the valves replaced. new temperature regulating safety valves are nice and work well now. just set the temp and let the valve compensate for sudden changes in water pressure. and this is not expensive stuff either. go on kohler.com pick out the spout/showerhead/ single valve assembly you like and check the prices. shouldn’t be more then $200 bucks for decent parts. you can get the lav faucet to match later. then hire a real plumber to do the copper and install the valve. one day for demo, 2 hours for plumber, and 2 days for tile guy.

Yes, the w and ork is for me. I have a small bathroom, it has a tub, toilet, 30″ vanity. Only things I plan on doing are replacing the diverter, retile shower, and put in a new basic vanity and mirror.

The reason I was planning on putting in the new diverter is that the tiles in my tub are in bad shape from a prior owner repair. If I am going to put up new tile and backer board I would just rather do the diverter now just in case it decides to go bad in another year, necessitating removing the new tile.

i personally wouldn’t spend a dime on residential property renovation right now, unless i planned to live there 5yrs minimum! every morning you wake up the place has dropped a little more in value.
