We have used
before, because their work has always been excellent and fairly priced. Their work on this most recent job met our expectations. On the first day (June 9), our plumber arrived on time, fixed the leaking shower faucet, and attempted to repair the broken toilet. He was unable to repair the toilet, so he returned the next day with a replacement, which he installed. On our final bill, we were NOT charged for the time he spent trying to repair the broken toilet, so we were VERY happy about that!

Plumber was on time and did a great job of opening the drain. It took him a couple of hours to unclog the drain which made it a great deal to have the special price. He was neat and did a great job. Will certainly use
in the future.

This guy is running a scam. He was sent to me through a home warranty company because my 2nd floor shower was leaking onto the 1st floor roof. He looked at my shower, told me the leak was from poor caulking, and that the warranty company wouldn't cover caulking. He took his service fee and was gone in a few minutes. I then recaulked the shower as he advised, and the water spot on my 1st floor roof continued to grow. I cut away the drywall, and now can see the water leaking when I run the shower. I also noticed a water spot on the second floor where the third floor shower was leaking. I called the warranty company again, and they sent the same guy back. I was thinking maybe he made an honest mistake the first time, so I let him come. Bear in mind that if I run the 2nd floor shower, you can ACTUALLY SEE WATER LEAKING FROM THE PIPE. He was late the second time he came and I had to leave, so I explained everything to him and left. By babysitter was in the house with him. I found out later that day that this clown told the warranty company that all my problems were because of --- guess what? -- the caulking on my third floor shower. When I got home, my babysitter said he had left two minutes after I did and NEVER EVEN WENT UP TO THE THIRD FLOOR. He obviously just collects his fee, blames the caulking that isn't covered under warranty, and is out the door in 5-10 minutes. I am just appalled that he would blame caulking again when you can literally watch the water drip out of a pipe where it connects to another pipe.

120+ year old house. Were able to avoid replacement of full main water line. Somewhat complicated job. Required about 20 elbows & connectors, used copper pipe. Much more work could have been done to house plumbing, etc., but got the job that was needed done and done well. Like their work very much. Good work was done. Doubt quality of work could be done for less, but didn't look for bids, as rather new kitchen faucet would not otherwise work.

Nick arrived at 9:40am and as soon as the door opened and Scout my dog was going crazy, he got down on his knees to

my dog and calm his nerves. I immediately knew I was in good hands. I explained the situation, Nick took the lid off and flushed the toilet once and knew what the problem was. The previous plumber (I am sure an apprentice who did not speak fluent English) had not cut enough links off of the chain so it was too loose. Nick removed links off of the chain, we each flushed it and water rushed out of all of the holes and the handle was much firmer. He did not charge me a cent! That is unheard now a days when every time you take a breath someone is trying to figure out how to make money. Nick is a stand-up guy and I will use the

The service went very well. I got a call about 1 hour before the scheduled time letting me know that the tech was on his way. He arrived on time. It took about 10 minutes to determine what the issue was. It was a clogged pipe in the drain catch. I didn't even know we had one. He showed me where it was and told me what it was for. He even

me a little diagram of the piping system in the house so that I would know exactly what he was talking about and what he was going to do. It took about 90 minutes for him to rod and clean everything. He also said he rodded out to the street as a courtesy.
He answered all of my questions and offered some tips on how to keep the drain from being clogged. He also offered suggestions on a maintence schedule and what part of the drain pipes were the homeowners responsibilty. I though he was very efficient and pleasant.
The price was a little steep. Began at $415 but he gave me a $40 coupon (which I think they give to everyone). It also seems that all of their services begin at $300-$400. I knew rotor rooter was not cheap but I am not complaining because I expect to get what I pay for. Customer service is paramount when you are spending that kind of money. They did not dissappoint. I would call them again.

Made appointment. I called him day of appointment to remind him (something a professional should be able to do himself, but I gave a friendly reminder). He said he was on his way. I waited TWO hours. He never showed and hasn't returned my call. Would never do business with him again, not a professional.

The three man crew were prompt to arrive and were pretty efficient. All of the work took place outside of our home and included the removal of grass and sidewalks in order to gain access to the pipeline leading to the main sewer. Our front yard looked like a disaster but they warned us that that would be the case. The city inspector rated the work a B+ but I think he was trying not to

up the crew's head because he approved the work. :). All in all we were happy with the quality of work.

He and an assistant showed up a bit later than expected, but explained that their earlier job ran a bit longer than expected. That was not a problem because he had called and let me know as soon as he left that job to let me know when to expect him. After he showed up they inspected under the sink and saw that the flexible hose between the copper pipe and faucet was leaking and replaced it. They had the part in the van. Next the began cleaning the sewer line. I have purchased the house in the last year and did not know if the previous owners had ever had it done. He recommended inspecting the line with the camera to not only get a baseline view of the system and to also check for problems. They did the cleaning quickly and professionally. Then he called me out to watch the inspection with the camera. He gave me tips on how to care for the sewer line. He was professional and knowledgable and his prices are very good. He gave me a discount because I am a teacher! I will call him again when a plumbing issue arises.

It was great!

arrived about an hour after my call. He was completely professional, even making a trip to the supply store for parts. My house is old. He solved the problem and was very friendly and kind in the process. I would definitely use this company again.
