We ended up not going with
Oakland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
, but that was because out of the three bids we got one that was a bit lower and had more context for the reasons behind the estimate. Having said that, we were please with the responsiveness and punctuality of
Oakland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
. They were in constant touch with us as they worked around some scheduling issues and emergency jobs. We did not feel like we were being disrespected or forgotten. They were always courteous and took the time they needed to understand what we wanted.
I like the company I went with, but I would not hesitate to call on

if the people I went with were to be unavailable in the future.

I called for service at 4:30pm on 8/5/14 and by 6pm the service team had arrived. They diagnosed the problem as being unfixable, went out to their truck to bring back a new 3/4 horsepower insinkerator for installation. I did give the office staff enough information up front which insured a new device that met my specs was available on their truck in the event that replacement became necessary. It was, and thus avoided a 2nd service call and a longer period of time without a garbage disposal.
I would give a "B" to "Quality" for the device they installed is not top-of-the-line; that's not to say that their work was in any way not "Quality"- That gets the "A".
If it hadn't been for Angie's List of customers who have given this Co (and others) high
Oakland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
I would have had no idea who to call and most importantly known of their reputation. I've already paid for my annual subscription to Angie's List due to savings in the standard Service Call (coming to the home) and an additional 10% off of labor. Granted my savings weren't high but my piece of mind is- and those are the most important savings of all.
I did not compare product nor labor costs up front, but can break down my costs after the fact for those of you that may find this information helpful in your travels:
Insinkerator Badger 900-1, 3/4 horsepower = $200
Labor = $200 for just over 1 hour less 10% as an Angie's customer
Service Call = $29 (instead of $49) as an Angie's customer
Hope this helps both Angie's customers and Service Providers! I thank you all.

is the Man! He worked all day at getting my house back in great working order. We'd just had the house repiped and found a leak under the toilet.

They arrived promptly and began working immediately. The work took all day but I had water service turned back on the same day. When they finished they informed me I had another leak in the bathroom that was outside their scope of work. There was a lag in the work while we waited for the city inspector. The inspector came two days after the start of the project and

was back on Monday to patch the walls and fill in the trenches. I would have preferred to have the work done in consecutive days but cannot complain about the level of skill of the workers. All in all, I am happy with the work and would recommend this company to anyone looking to upgrade their plumbing.

Pelican was great to work with. They gave us an estimate via email very quickly and answered our questions. They were not the cheapest estimate we got but they definitely were not the highest and they were very easy to deal with. The job took them about a week and when there was an issue with one of the water heaters after they left they came right back out to fix it and checked the water temperature in every tap - our shower was weirdly cold, they fixed it. Great guys and we will definitely use again. My only complaint was that they trampled a couple of my plants and broke some lattice that was blocking off the crawl space. Not really a huge deal but still annoying. They also tore down but did not haul away this little shed that our old tanked heater was in. We looked back over the quote and the haul away was not listed so I guess we should have had them call that out in the bid. Overall, I recommend them!

It was a great experience.
Oakland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
from Superior is the guy you want to show up at your house when you have a problem: professional, experienced, and a clear communicator. And Superior also has the technology to make the process transparent. No more guessing about the issue and wondering whether you are getting the straight scoop or a sales pitch. They show you images from a remote camera which they fish into your drain and walk you through what you are seeing so you can draw your own conclusions. In my case, it was roots from a nearby tree that had punched through the pipe and caused the blockage. We also saw that the pipe was cracked. Now a cracked pipe is definitely not something that I wanted, but it was helpful to have seen it with my own eyes. I can’t tell you how much easier it is to think about a major pipe repair when you know it is broken, not just wondering if it might be.

then removed the roots blocking the pipe and put us back in working order right away. Before departing, he addressed the cracked pipe, walked me through his recommendation, and wrote up an estimate for the work without any sales pressure. They also left me a DVD of the images we had seen.

Great experience from start to finish. Replaced a leaking water heater in an older home with all of the challenges of old rusty piping and difficult access. All employees including the estimator, office staff, and the installers were engaging, courteous, professional, and very patient with questions.

What a great experience! I discovered the leak on Friday night at midnight. I called
Oakland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
at 9 am Saturday and the technician (
Oakland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
) arrived before noon. He was very respectful of my house, wore shoe covers, and cleaned everything up at the end. He clearly had great plumbing expertise and discovered the problem quickly. He described every step thoroughly and ensured that everything was working properly after the repairs. I'll definitely use

(preferably

They repiped one bathroom on the second floor and part of the basement. The rest of the house had already been repiped. They responded quickly to our call. They told us exactly what to expect when we signed the contract. They sent a team of 4-5 to do the repiping, which took one day. Another day was for the inspection. The inspector checked all three levels and said he was pleased with their work. Then the patchwork was scheduled. One person came out to patch. He was here nine hours and did an excellent job matching the surrounding areas. We are pleased with this company and would use them again and have already recommended them to our regular contractor. As for the price, it was less than half of what our regular plumber quoted for the same job. These folks are experts at what they do.

One shower faucet would not turn the water off and the other was old and worn. Pelican plumber came on time. He needed some parts not readily available, so he drove into
Oakland Plumbers Provider Name Locked
to the Sink Factory on a busy Friday afternoon to get the parts. He did not charge us for the drive time. He returned and repaired both faucets. Total time with trip was more than 3 hours.. He charged us for 1.5 hours plus parts.
