"We have a 60 year old house. Water backed up through a basement drain and when our plumber tried to rod it out he couldn't and determined we had a sewer line" break. Company #1 (a well known Skokie firm) said the break was inside the house under the concrete floor and quoted $5,000 to fix. Company #2 said break was outside house and quoted $4,600, using machinery that would require removing a fence and bushes to get to the spot. Company #3 came out, said he forgot his camera, would reschedule, and we never heard from him again. Company #4,
, sent out
, who also said the problem was outside the house right next to the foundation wall. He said they could dig by hand (about 10 feet down!) and avoid the machinery problems. Quoted $3,400. We asked him to come within 3 days because we were going on a months' vacation and didn't want to worry about the problem. He did. Two guys worked their butts off digging for a day and a half, with
stopping by periodically. The break was exactly where they determined it would be, and although it was a very difficult area to work in they managed to complete the repair without a problem. The workers were nice guys and didn't mind explaining what was going on when we asked. Same with
. He really seemed knowledgeable on what needed to be done and how to do it. We are so thankful we didn't rely on Company #1, who would have torn up the concrete floor in our basement and still not have been able to fix the problem. We are also thankful we don't have to replace the fence and bushes that Company #2 would have required (plus the $1,200 more they wanted for the work). Company #3 was a dufus. We would highly recommend
based on our experience, and of course would call them first if we ever have another problem.

"I can't say enough about how professional the service and staff was. I'm a night worker and the phone call to set up the appointment as well as the appointment" itself was tailored to me - to avoid my sleep pattern. I was given clear explanation of the problem and more important HOW TO VOID IT AGAIN!! $$ Thanks a ton!

Do you know if your sewer lines are covered by homeowner's insurance? Repairs can cost thousands. Check your insurance policy to see if you're covered.

It’s almost painful to shell out hard-earned money for some home projects. Unlike adding a new deck or remodeling the kitchen, replacing a sump pump is hardly cause for a party.

Consult a professional sewer cleaning company that will discuss your options and tailor a maintenance program that is effective and affordable, says DiPalma. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Sally Z. of Grand Rapids, Mich.)

Having your sewer line cleaned is one of the most overlooked home maintenance tasks. One highly rated provider explains why it's so important and how it works.

We called
Urbandale Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
on a hot water heater issue late one evening and described the problem. He said he could come out the next morning, but said "B, you are handy. here is the likely problem and by doing XXX you could fix it" He was right of course and it took me about 15 minutes (and no cost) to do the repair. Another time one of our tenants called to say there was no hot water. He sent someone out a couple of hours after contact and replaced the malfunctioning part and sent me a bill that was way below what one of the big guys would have charged. GAs leak at one of our condos, immediate response and repair. The major. complete change remodel to our master bath (moving walls, tub and shower, Neorest toilet (built in bidet with electric heaters and with remote control) was done while we were away; we had no worries because it was

In the middle of doing laundry on a Saturday morning, I discovered water backing up on the basement floor. I quickly perused Angie's list for a reputable service who would be available on very short notice to help with the problem. I placed a call to
Urbandale Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
and received a response within minutes. An "emergency" service request was placed and
Urbandale Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
was at my door in just a couple of hours. He assessed the problem as a thick root ball and not cracked or broken pipe as I feared, and quickly went to work. After an initial attempt with the larger snake that wasn't able to clear the roots, he then ran the smaller snake and removed an enormous pile of roots more than 3 feet long and matted so thick I was stunned that there was any water flow through the drain at all. He ran the line through again to make sure the clog was cleared then ran the larger line through to make sure the drain was completely root free. In the past I've had issues with root clogs and called a well known competitor that, as
Urbandale Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
explained, only managed to cut a hole through the massive root ball but did not completely clear the debris. In the end, the process took nearly two hours to complete and still cost considerably less than fees charged by the competitor. I feel confident that the job was done thoroughly and completely this time. I was very pleased with the professionalism, courtesy and efficiency and will most definitely contact
Urbandale Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
for any future drain issues. In fact I've already referred my sister who was having similar problems with water backing up on the basement floor.

Everything went well for the most part except that they charged for bringing their equipment to the basement. This fee wasn't mentioned to me until the service person was actually at the house and ready to work. Aside from this, they did the work as promised and kept the area clean. I just feel as though the extra fee should have been stated clearly from the beginning.

The service went fine. They ended up finding out that our drain was clogged by roots. They advised that we contact our landscaper to resolve that issue. The company was very responsive and easy to schedule with. They came out the same day I purchased the deal. Two technicians came out for the first visit. The manager and another technician came out a second time to make sure everything was done correctly. The manager was very clear about what the problem was and had an easy fix to the issue.

The work was sat, but at $1000 it should be. When asked for a quote the individual hedged and hymned and hawed. Having paid rotor-rooter about 350 in the past, it thought it would be in the same ballpark - didn't realize it was the owner's box.
