"My tile
line underground to the street was broken, plus the under-gutter connection to the downspout was corroded, preventing connection" to the down spout pipes, and was an unusual size. Within 2 days, digging commenced. The workers were very careful with the plants that were dug up. New ABS piping was laid among large roots from the front yard tree and the garden restored.

"We hired Mat 'n
's to do a Radon test and Sewer scope inspection at a house we were considering buying. The price quoted is the" price charged. We called around and got another quote from a different company and Mat 'n
's pricing was competitive with other shops we found.
from Mat 'n Mels was there when I arrived at the location and got to work right away. He was done in a very short time and clearly indicated what was required for the radon test to be successful. He also stayed around and answered all questions we had pertaining to the sewer scope inspection and even answered questions regarding the property that was not related to the radon or sewer scope inspections. Overall
was very helpful, professional and qualified to do his job. We especially like that they don't sell services for repairs - so they're not looking for work when doing inspections and any results we get from them are not coming with an ulterior motive. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Our tenant's laundry sink in the basement backed up and overflowed on a Sunday while they using their washing machine. The kitchen sink is right above that and any water drained from it was also causing even more water to be backed up into the laundry sink. My husband attempted to snake the drain through a clean-out in the line but was unable to get the snake past a bend in the pipe below the concrete floor. Sunday night at 7:30pm, I called

from
Portland Sewer Cleaning Companies Provider Name Locked
after reading their reviews (and other plumber's reviews, some of which said that
Portland Sewer Cleaning Companies Provider Name Locked
was ultimately the company that actually was able to clear AND repair the problem, if needed). He cheerfully answered the phone even though it was a Sunday night, and we scheduled him to come out at 11am the very next day as I did not want my tenants to be inconvenienced more than they already had been.
Portland Sewer Cleaning Companies Provider Name Locked
called just before 10am to say he would be there in a few minutes, as he had finished his previous job (we had already agreed he could come earlier if he finished that one early). He met my husband and looked over the situation, collected his power snake tool and proceeded to clear the blockage. He ran water through the drain from the laundry sink as he snaked the line all the way to the main sewer at the street and it is now running freely. Wonderful! He was polite, friendly and competent and did not try to upsell us on anything. We had questions about our plumbing system, and he patiently explained how it all comes together (as best we could all see anyway, as it is under our concrete basement floor). We are very satisfied with the service

provided and with

who came out to do the work. We will use them again for our drain-clearing needs.

. I left a message and received a call back at 8:00AM.

was able to come almost immediately based on proximity and his schedule, so this was very good news to me. He arrived at 9:00AM, and immediately had the camera in the sewer line. He found the blockage, cleared it with the snake and allowed me to take a photo of the rebar which had been hammered through the pipe by my landscapers.

explained what would be done to fix the problem. He was finished in less than an hour.
The landscapers excavated the area to expose the pipe and rebar. Via text,

When the sewer backups became chronic, and the plumber told us the 90+ year old sewer pipe was likely at the end of its life, we knew we were looking at a serious pipe replacement job- complete with digging up the basement floor, a trench from the house to the street, moving shrubs and a newly planted tree! Expensive and time-consuming. But it went much better than we expected.
When smelly sewer water began rising from the basement drain, we called
Portland Sewer Cleaning Companies Provider Name Locked
. They came out that afternoon and using a camera, found a problem in the line between the house and the main city sewer. The pipe was too blocked to determine exactly how large or what was causing the blockage, but it was confirmed that a new pipe would have to be installed. They provided an estimate. The next day, the city utilities department came out to identify the location of the water, sewer, and gas lines and permits were issued; the digging equipment was delivered to begin work the next morning. The Clog Buster crew showed up promptly and dug two 5x5' holes which were about 8'deep, one close to the house and one near the street (moving the azaleas and carefully avoiding the newly-planted tree). They discovered a huge root knot which had grown into and broken our ancient sewer pipe. Then they inserted a new pipe into the old one, made new connections, covered the holes, and put everything back where it belonged. The city inspector signed off on a job well done.
Before they left,
Portland Sewer Cleaning Companies Provider Name Locked
cleaned out the kitchen pipes and drains to make sure the pipes were clear and videotaped an inspection of the whole line. This can be used for reference in the future, when we sell the house. The crew from
Portland Sewer Cleaning Companies Provider Name Locked
were definitely pros, easy to work with, and trustworthy. They thoroughly cleaned up and put things back in place.. We re so pleased that this emergency situation was rectified quickly and we can confidently use our plumbing again!

Came home during the heavy rainfall today to find water bubbling up from my downspout. I'm not a very handy person, so I looked through Angie's List for someone who was in my part of town.
Portland Sewer Cleaning Companies Provider Name Locked
answered right away and came within an hour, which was pretty nice since it was already towards the end of a typical business day. He cleared my clogged sewer drainpipe in about 20 minutes and was on his way. Will definitely call again to schedule gutter cleaning or any other drain issues that arise!

Overall, our experience with
Portland Sewer Cleaning Companies Provider Name Locked
was a very mixed bag: on the one hand they completed the main tasks which the project called for, but on the other hand they did not follow through with some minor details that they had offered. Some of the problem may been poor communication -- but our impression was that the company was spread too thin, working on different projects at the same time, ours being only one of them. There were different workers shifting between our job and other jobs, and no one seemed to be consistently in charge and able to address our concerns along the way. Also, two of the three workers who started our job were completely new to the work.
The most general point we can make is that for $10,000 we might have expected a little more personal attention than we got for this work. That said, City of Portland inspectors approved the project, so we should now be able to forget about sewer issues for the rest of our lifetimes!

arrived at the scheduled time, well groomed, very polite and informative. He took less than 30 minutes to unclog drain in basement that runs into large city sewer pipe. Afterwards, he showed me a video of that entire pipe, explaining what I was looking at throughout the video. Then he point by point explained to me the procedure that would be involved if I chose in the future to have the sewer pipe from house to street replaced. I was delighted to learn that my precious plants would not be damaged or involved except for only two that

would be sure to have dug up and preserved prior to beginning their work. For unclogging my drain, the video and all assessments and explanations, the final charge was $116. Also,

I received a bid of $1345 on Feb of 2013. I called April 28th, 2014, as I was ready to proceed with the project, and made an appointment for the work to be done on May 21st, their first opening 3.5 weeks later. However, I had to wait 9 days for
Portland Sewer Cleaning Companies Provider Name Locked
to come back to look at the job. He came on Wednesday afternoon, May 7th, emailing a new bid on Thursday afternoon, the 8th that was $300 higher becaue of a current code change. We exchanged several emails as I wanted more information. Turns out the "current code change" went into effect in 2003, 10 years before the first bid. On Friday afternoon, he responded to let him know if I wanted to move forward. I called on Monday to say "yes", but the receptionist said my installation appointment 9 days later on May 21st had been cancelled and there was nothing they could do. Their next opening was the end of June, 6 weeks later!
They could make me wait 9 days for
Portland Sewer Cleaning Companies Provider Name Locked
to come out, but somehow could not wait 1 business day for me to respond? I think this is unprofessional and very poor customer service. I will never use this company again.
