Members spout praise for these Houston plumbers

Whether you live north in Humble or south in Pearland, as a Houston homeowner, you’re looking for great service, especially with your plumbing needs and emergencies.

Here’s the latest Post of Happiness for great service from Houston plumbers as selected by the Angie’s List Newsroom staff. 

Washing machine gusher

Catherine Herring called Southern Plumbing Services of Stafford, Texas when water was pouring out of the back of her washing machine. “They immediately got down to business and knew exactly what was wrong,” she says. “They cleaned the pipes involved in the leak and also checked and cleaned a shower drain that could have been connected to the same pipeline. They asked me questions, which came from a proactive curiosity rather than simply trying to rack up the bill. I will definitely call them with all my plumbing needs!”

Water heater woes

Glenn Kessler is plumb pleased with his water heater replacement performed by Plumbco of Houston. “They completed the entire job in under two hours,” he says. “Everything had to be taken up and down stairs, and my wood floors weren’t harmed. This is the best plumbing company I have used since moving to the Houston area 33 years ago. I like the idea of using a local company that cares about the job they perform. I even received a thank-you note a few days later.”

Wet walls

Able Plumbing of Seabrook, Texas was willing and able to get to the root of the problem when Joseph Carwile came home from church one Sunday to water running down his bathroom walls. “I picked Able due to their reviews and proximity to my home,” he says. “They found the problem, which was my water heater. I got everything I could expect from a licensed plumber. They were on time, pleasant and cleaned up after the job was done. Also, the price I paid was very reasonable!”

Unblocking the blockage

The service of Shorty’s Plumbing & Drain Doctors of Conroe, Texas reached new heights when they cleared Jeff Kelley’s kitchen drain. “They snaked the drain, ran a camera and repeated the process until the blockage was removed,” he says. “I used an Angie’s List coupon so the cost was $85. I felt like I was robbing them! I am a landlord, so I have dealt with every type of service provider under the sun. I highly recommend Shorty’s Plumbing and Drain Doctors, and Shorty is my go-to-guy for now on.”

We ask our members for nominations when they rate companies with A's in every category. To qualify, a review must be at least 500 characters about a company's actual work (not just an estimate) and members need to assure us that they'd hire again.

After a nomination, our staff selects the most outstanding stories to feature. If we choose your nomination, your review will appear in our monthly magazine and even right here on our website.
