Members gush over these Virginia Beach plumbers
Whether you live in Hampton Roads or Suffolk, as homeowner around Norfolk, you’re looking for great service, especially with your plumbing needs and emergencies.
Here’s the latest Post of Happiness for great service from Virginia Beach plumbers as selected by the Angie’s List Newsroom staff.
'An honest plumber'
Wendie Donahue gushes about her positive experience with Portsmouth Plumbing Services of Portsmouth, Va. “They opened a clogged toilet, changed seals on two toilets and secured and caulked one toilet,” she says. “This was a pleasant and comfortable experience. They were efficient, knowledgeable and thorough and explained everything they were doing.
"I couldn’t believe the cost since many charge nearly that much just for a service call," Donahue says. "I had been concerned that a person would come out and tell me I needed hundreds of dollars worth of work. But he was an honest plumber.”
Melanie Paul thinks the team at Atomic Plumbing & Drain Cleaning of Virginia Beach, Va. is the bomb. “They removed and replaced my water heater,” she says. “I could not have asked for a better experience than the one I had with Atomic Plumbing & Drain Cleaning. From the moment I called in for service until the tech arrived at my house, I was in contact with the company the whole day. To be stuck in a house with two children under the age of three and having no water, things might get a little out of control. The owner of the company delivered the new water heater to my house while the technician was getting all the plumbing ready.
"I could not have asked for a better end to a fun-filled day," Paul says. "Thanks guys. It looks like I have found a new plumber now.”
Unclogging a drain pipe
Norfolk Plumbing of Norfolk, Va. went above the call of duty for Jaye Buelow. “Late on a Saturday afternoon, my tenants informed me of a blocked drain pipe at the house,” Buelow says. “Norfolk Plumbing took my call and immediately dispatched the work. They called for more specifics within minutes and were courteous and professional. I was not on site where the problem occurred, so they were sure to communicate with me every step of the way. I knew exactly when they planned to arrive, when they left and the service they were required to perform.
"While the job wasn’t very complicated, they made this emergency as stress-free as possible," Buelow says. "I knew I was in good hands. Thank you Norfolk Plumbing!”
Fixing a slow fill
Pamela Huyck was pleased with her positive plumbing experience from American Mechanical of Virginia Beach, Va. “My toilet tank was taking one to two hours to fill,” she says. “I called on a Wednesday afternoon to schedule an appointment. I got a call first thing on Thursday to say they were on the way, and they arrived shortly thereafter.
"I was concerned that the problem might be in the water line, perhaps a leak, but they said it was a worn assembly," she says. "They had a new assembly in their truck, installed and tested it, and the whole operation took less than an hour. It was a great experience and much easier than I expected.”
