5.0 Crystal B. Palmyra, VA

My husband and I called Mr. Thurston on Christmas Eve morning due to not having any hot water. Mr. Thurston had one job to finish and then he came right over to us. He explained everything that he needed to do and got our hot water back up and running. I would recommend this company to anyone.

Outstanding service


Ernest Thurston and Son came out and saved the day by getting us back in action by hooking up our gas stove appliance the next day! They also did a kitchen sink install and now we are ready to host Thanksgiving now that we have a way to cook the Turkey! They were professional, clean and kept in touch about their arrival time.

HomeAdvisor provided service on in the late afternoon/evening on a weekend when no one else would or could.

5.0 Arthur P. Palmyra, VA

Outstanding response to failed water heater on Sunday afternoon. While water was now heating, noted a leak in the heater which would result in a future failure. I chose to replace the water heater. Mr. Thurston had the same item in stock. Delivered new and replaced the old heater in less than two hours total.

5.0 Deborah D. Charlottesville, VA

Gentleman was very knowledgeable and helpful. Walked me through what he was doing every step!

5.0 Anthony B. Charlottesville, VA

Mr Thurston was quick to respond to our request for a quote, very thorough in his analysis of the water line break, and was cooperative and prompt with insurance request for information. He had all of the appropriate equipment to replace the broken water line. He cleaned up the area very nicely and left it looking great. He was a very pleasant gentleman. Highly recommend

HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
