Recent Review: John prefers to get a visual of the work to be performed, at which point he attempts to give you a ballpark estimate. This is helpful, and appreciated. He does this via picture mail, and prefers to converse via text, so this could be more challenging for the technology impaired. He made a point of asking that he be texted the following day at lunch time, in order to determine if he would be coming out that day (during the week). It seemed if you were contacting him towards the end of the week then he would assure you were serviced on the weekend. The back and forth to establish a time was somewhat frustrating, but once given a Saturday appointment he showed up right on time. He had hoped to replace only the cartridge in the shower valve, but ended up being unable to remove it from the valve, and instead had to replace the entire valve assembly. He moved around appointments to ensure the full service was completed immediately, and made sure the section of drywall that had to be removed was replaced, mudded, and ready to be painted. He does not work with home warranty companies, and it seemed my home warranty company would not reimburse the full amount paid, perhaps due to a lack of itemized invoice, or to the service exceeding the amount they allow for the type of service. I am not well versed in plumbling, but the repair cost did not seem astronomical in light of the amount of work to be done. Overall, I would use John again, as quality contractors seem to be lacking in this day and age.

Recent Review: Excellent service, they arrived on time, inspected and recommended that we use the existing shower valve which saved us a lot of demo (and money), and installed new fixtures. Professional service, will use them again.

Mr. Rooter Plumbing of the CSRA
Recent Review: This is the 2nd company that offer 24/7 emergency service I called during the weekends. They are very responsive and helped me setup a visit the same day in the afternoon. The plumber came on time and check the problem and explained to me what need to be done very clearly. It was a 2-3 hour job. The price quote they gave me is very reasonable, half of the quote from the first company (another company beginning with Mr. Fxxxx. Very bad experience, I will review later). They offered me member price (another 15% discount), even before I told him I am actually a member. The job was done very very neatly. The plumber cut a square hole on the other side of the wall and get the shower valve replaced. He went to Lowes to purchase a 16 by 16 vinyl cover to cover the hole, which I do not need to pay for (Have to complain about the first company again. The first sentence the plumber from that company told me was that he would not do anything to the hole on the wall. I have to deal with it). It looks fantastic. The rest of the job was done flawlessly too. He also offered to help me trash the old unit. Overall, it is a 5-star experience and I will definitely use them again and recommend them to everyone I know (forget about the Mr. Fxxxx company. They just want to rip your money).  Highlight: Quick response, flat rate, neat job, polite personnel

UNIVERSAL PLUMBING
Recent Review: After renovating a bathroom, we discovered that the shower valves were leaking and that the diverter was not functioning. Rookie mistake (!).  It appeared that the assembly connecting the valves and diverter back in the wall was malfunctioning. We were hoping a plumber would have some "magical tool" that would allow us to fix the issue without opening up this newly renovated (!) room. We called Universal Plumbing who scheduled an estimate the same day. They told us up front there was a fee ($65) for the estimate that would be applied to the bill if we ended up having work done. The plumber arrived as scheduled and was very polite and professional. He assessed the situation and determined that we would indeed have to open up the walls and replace internal piping. He called his home office to get a price for the work and we were STUNNED at the estimate he returned with. Close to $600 to fix a shower valve!!! We assumed it would be closer to half that (which we even thought was highway robbery, but somewhat expected since we know plumbing is expensive). Of course at this point we are $65 in and need the repair done as soon as possible. I think they were very aware of our predicament and took advantage of it. We could have shopped around and priced it for less, but there we were stareing at a plumber who had the materials and the time. We called the office to get an itemized explaination for the charges and to negotiate the estimate, but were told the price was fixed and beyond their control. Despite the fact that we KNEW we were getting seriously overcharged, we proceeded with the repair. Our choice, but we were not pleased. The plumber was there for about an hour, did a very good job, and ended up charging us $50 less that the original estimate. Thank you (much appreciated), but does that mean there is some pricing control after all?Once again; extremely fast fast with an estimate, the plumber himself was very nice and efficient, the problem was fixed to our satisfaction, all top marks...but we just can't get over the price.

GA-LINA PLUMBING & REMODELING INC
Recent Review: I had a leaking shower valve.  I called and they were in the area.  The owner came over immediately to check on the problem and sent his crew over when they finished the job down the road.   The consisted of 3 guys - a bit overkill for a shower valve, but that's okay I suppose.  They removed the valve in question and decided it just needed to be screwed back in tighter.  They adjusted  the other valves too and caulked one edge of the tub and caulked around the tub spout.   The job seemed to take a bit longer than needed.  They don't bring in any tools.  If the need a screw driver, they send a guy out to get it from the truck.  Then it was thread tape... and then it was something else.  At one point, they sent the guy out for something and he stood out there on the phone for 10 minutes.   I think the total amount of time is reflected in the bill.  It should not have taken that long.  They also sat in the driveway for 15 minutes when they finished waiting to get a total amount to charge me.   Again, I love this company and will hire them in the future, but it seemed to take a long time and a bit much for re-seating a valve, making a few adjustments and adding some caulk. When the owner was on the job the last time I used them, it seemed to go a bit smoother and it was more efficient.  And the amount of work performed the last time, in correlation to the price, seems to be a bit out of whack with this time around.

I called Busbee Plumbing on a Sunday evening after I torqued the shower assembly apart trying to remove a welded on bonnet nut. John call me back immediately and gave me a ballpark price to replace. (In fact, of the three contractors I called, he was the only one to do this.) He said he would be there at 9 AM the next morning and indeed he was. He was prompt, courteous, and very fast. He came in a little under his original estimate which i thought was originally reasonable. In today's culture, that's unheard of and refreshing to see. I would definitely hire Busbee Plumbing again. -- Andy R.
