Plumbing reviews in Portland


Had a "major" problem (shower that was leaking from the 2nd floor to the first) and also some minor work that I saved up for when I really need a plumber. I checked several on Angies List and decided on Meticulous. Good service at the office and

the friendly plumber came out and instantly took out a lot of hair from the drain that may have caused a leak around the seal of the drain and asked him to install the sink with faucets we purchased. He didn't give me a quote for the sinks and I though maybe 1 hour of work about $200 (at most per hour). I supplied the parts...and when he gave me the price of $661.11 for the install, I was surprised. He mentioned it was a discount since I'm a Angie's List customer...hmmm, really?
So I paid him and then 2 days later, a leak started from the drain of the sink. I called Meticulous and

came out again. He disassembled the drain (called pop up assembly) and said "see, told you these were cheap...made of plastic not brass like they should". He said the plastic ones expand and contract with the temperature and will eventually break. I mentioned we only used the sink for 2 or 3 days...I offered another option that the pop-up may have been screwed in too tight. He said he is not taking any responsibility and absolutely refused that the tightness could be any cause of the pop up assembly failure.
What was I to do...I accepted

's pop up assembly (made by Delta) and installation for another $221.58 (plus another dispatch fee). Looked online the same Delta pop up assembly was about $50.
My main complaint was
(1) no quote for installing the sink but I didn't insist on one either so part my fault
(2) not telling me of the "possibility" that the pop up assembly would leak
(3) not accepting even the slightest responsibility for the workmanship but rather blamed it all on the parts.
Perhaps the parts were part of the cause, but I do not believe all of the cause. So in the end, it is still difficult to trust "professionals" doing home jobs, but I know I will not be using

I contacted
Portland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
as they had a $39 deal on the Angie's List web site. The deal included a trip to my house to assess the problem of a constantly running toilet. Ti
Portland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
and his apprentice
Portland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
arrived on the day we had scheduled and immediately set to work assessing the problem of the running toilet. Before beginning any work Ti explained what was needed and what it would cost. He diagnosed a faulty flapper poorly installed by the previous owners of the house. He said my low flush toilet was actually using more water than a regular toilet and was way above the 1.6 gallons per flush claimed by the manufacturer of toilet. He also said the toilet was not level and suggested he place a

at the base of the toilet to make it level. The cost, for all services, in addition to the $39 service call, was $99 for a total of $138. I had him perform the work while he was here and within half an hour he had it done and was on his way.

It went great.

came out for an estimate the day before (which was charged for, but the total price was lower than expected, so I have no complaints), and said he could be back the next day. He was extremely friendly and easy to speak with. The next day he and

I was having some leakage problems with my old hose-
Portland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
in the frontyard and wanted to replace it. I saw their offer/coupon on
Portland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
and bought the $99 service to install an outdoor hose

. The initial contact was ok and their replies were prompt. The plumber arrived in the designated time window. He told my wife, who was home at that time, that the pipe in the crawlspace might break when he installs the hose-

. Correcting that would be extra. We had asked for a frost-free hose

for which he charged an extra $30. All this was OK.
Now comes the unsatisfactory part:
He installed the hose

and then took the old hose-
Portland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
with him, which had a brand new (two week old) vacuum breaker worth $30. I emailed them and asked them if they could return it, so I could use it on backyard hose
Portland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
. First email was replied with a " I will relay the message to our plumber." Two weeks passed and no contact/reply. I again emailed them requesting them to return the vacuum breaker. This time I did not even receive a reply. At this point I was still patient.
I finally lost my patience, when I saw that two and half months after the install, the frontyard hosebibb is leaking again. So effectively I am back to the same situation as before having spent $159 (99+30+30) on these guys. I would never use these guys again and would not recommend them to my friends.
I thought I was getting a good deal from an A-rated plumber, expecting good service. But learned my lesson. Henceforth, I would stick with my go-to plumber.

Nick and his team at
Portland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
spent some time with me to discuss a drain pipe leak issue at my home. The problem was minor, but I needed a professional to take a look.
Nick and his team were extremely courteous and made it very convenient for me to explain my situation. Specifically, they asked for photos to document the problem (sent via text message), and Nick quickly called me back to provide feedback as to what I should do.
Nick gave me a thorough assessment of the issue, and offered several options:
1) Patch up the leak in the drain pipe with duct tape as a temporary fix, since we were planning to renovate our kitchen at a future date (a good solution if more pipes were going to need replacing in the future)
2) Replace the section
3) Replace the section as well as the water lines
He gave me estimates for all options.
I felt reassured that Nick and his team were honest and fair, and their helpful suggestions for what I ought to do this weekend not only solved my problem quickly, but they bolstered my confidence in them for future work.
Thank you,

Absolutely excellent! They were really considerate of me as I am handicap and chair/bed bound.

were both clean and removed materials and cleaned up which was so surprising as most construction work I have had done they always leave some amount of mess. I recommend them greatly!

came out initially for a toilet problem which he diagnosed
immediately. It turned out there was no real problem and he was honest
enough to say so. He also repaired a 2 leaky washing machine faucets and
showed me how to effect the same repair on my own. Excellent service
and I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Unfortunately to explore the leak and then fix it involved removing sheet rock. Treven did a good job of this and soon was able to give us a probable cause for the leak and a worse and best case scenario for the fix. We scheduled the date for the repairs and they were done as estimated. The cause was easily identified (ancient rotted drain pipe) and fixed. There were no surprises and the work was done to the estimated time and budget.

Our leaking pipe under the sink and leaking faucet made our sink and dishwasher unusable. They worked us in.

called when he was on his way over. He was courteous, thorough and explained our options before doing any work.

tightened under the sink first and then explained the faucet problems and the cost difference in faucets. We went with the better built and slightly more expensive faucet which is seems much sturdier than our last faucet. He replaced everything right then and had all the supplies on the truck.

created very little mess and cleaned up, even taking the old faucet to dispose.
Their price was fair and came in way under a previous faucet bid we had gotten. The quality and labor was well worth the price.

also took time to look at the house set up and give some information on a possible house re-pipe in the future. He was not pressure selling, I asked for this information. He then let me know if we decide to go ahead with a re-pipe in the future that they can schedule time to do a thorough estimate. I am impressed with their professionalism, friendliness, and plan on calling them for our future plumbing needs.
