Roanoke Drain Plumbers Reviews

"Great! Showed up on time and went to work right away and had it taken care of; Cleaned up and were very professional; Also fitted me in even though he was leaving that evening for vacation
"Well it was a fri. afternoon late and our drains were starting to drain slow and were getting clogged up. A friend gave me Mr.

# and I called him while he was eating supper and told him my problem. He gave me a verbal service estimate ($200) and I agreed, so he was on his way. He knew what the problem was and fixed it in a timely fashion. He said he could help me out a little on the price because it was a minimal type fix ($150). Good guy."
"They did really well but I didn’t expect them to cost as much as they did. They had same-day service, they did their job well, and they did what they said they were going to do. There wasn’t much interaction."
"I like this team! I have used them twice, with satisfying results. They are available 24/7 and show up promptly, and are very pleasant. I did downgrade them a bit in professionalism, as they had to be in and out of my basement (the floor drain is right outside the basement door in the outer stairwell) to do this work, and left muddy footprints just inside the door, which they did not clean up before leaving. The prompt and effective job they did was worth this tradeoff, however. I recommend this company; just have a mop handy!"
"He used Orangeburg pipe, which is permeable. He also didn't install a 2nd clean-up access, needed due to the distance to the county sewer line. It started backing up, due to tree roots invading the pipe, in late '08. The problem gradually worstened until it was untenable, spring '10. I hired another plumber (

Horn) who dug up the whole line and replaced it with what should've been done in the first place--pvc pipe. I recommend her without reservation.

, I wouldn't hire to unclog a toilet.
"This was second time in 3 months we had used this company to unclog our sewage drain. They did it in Nov of 2010 and at that time they had pulled up some roots. When it backed up again in Feb of 2011 we thought to use them again. Different guy this time out. We called at 2:45pm and he arrived by around 3:50pm. He did his job quickly but kept trying to push on us a video scope of our drain. This had been recommended to us last time they were out in November and we passed on it then. We were very close to doing it until he we got into the cost of it. That is my biggest issue with this company is how they charge you. Here is what they charged us for the job they DID do 1) You get charged from the moment you place the call. So from 2:45 until he got to us at 3:50 we were already being charged at a rate of $62/hour. 2) This charge does not stop when they leave UNLESS they have a new call to go to. At which time the next persons charges starts. In our case we were the last stop BUT he doesn't stop charging us until HE gets back to the office which was 45 minutes away. 2) Then we were charged $55 for the use of their equipment (They called it big sewage cables when all it is was is a snake machine) 3) Then they charge you for their fuel which is based on the drive from the last stop to us and in this case BACK to their office. He estimated 54 miles on the bill and charged us $27. He was only at our house for 1 and 1/2 hours but we were billed 3hrs and 15 minutes. Not only did we pay for his gas but we paid for his time that he wasn't here working. IF we had done the video scope the charges were going to be: 1) $100 for equipment. $75 to locate the pipe outside as the video scope was going done the pipe. It apparently emitted a radio frequency that they could track. He claimed every 5 feet he'd have to leave and go outside to locate it. This just meant more hourly time. 2) I estimated conservatively it would have cost me another $400. He also seemed a little put out by the fact that I had a $25 coupon they had left us last time to use. They did the job but we were WAY overcharged for the work. Just be prepared if you use them you will be paying through the nose for their service."
"I called three days in advance to set up an appointment. I was given a time between 9-10 a.m. At almost 10 am I had not seen or heard from them so I called. The person on the phone seemed to have no idea about the appontment, and fumbled his way through the call as he regathered the name address etc and said they were still coming. They arrived a few minuted before 11 am with apologies for being tied up on another job. The quickly freed up the floor drain. They then moved to the washer drain (which connects tot he floor drain about 5 feet away. The floor drain was 165 dollars to get snaked. They charged an extra 50 dollars for the additional 5 feet of drain. I supplied them with shop towels for the job, which they asked if they could keep (I said yes). I had a coupon for 10% off and they took of $10.00 which is not the same thing (10% would have been $21.50). "
"My issue with Mr.
Roanoke Drain Plumbers Provider Name Locked
is not with the quality of his work, which I believe was quite satisfactory, but with his business practices. If you choose to work with Mr.
Roanoke Drain Plumbers Provider Name Locked
, be sure to get a detailed (time and materials), written estimate for the work to be performed (as well as a couple of estimates from other plumbers to compare it with), ask to see a copy of the permit he has secured to do the work (if a permit is required), and get a receipt for the job when it is done.
"We received a coupon from this company for service to our main drain line. The men worked very hard and both my husband and myself were very impressed. They had to approach the line from inside the house to the road AND from the road to the house. They have very good equipment to perform the clean-out. Of course they wanted us to have additional work done by them..but we didn't think it was necessary. We would use them again..
