CBenjamin Franklin Plumbing Duluth
Work was adequate, but price was astronomical compared the simple Nature of the work performed.

had them out to fix water heater gas leak and when the gas company came out they found a new leak where the water heater enters the main gas line, the came back out, fixed the leak and charged me 200.00 for a leak they created.

Gas line is installed and working. Met the Estimate No shut off installed on the grill connection. I felt this a safety concern, they said it met code. I requested they put on in. They did. At job start I asked that the line for the stove allow it to be pulled all the way out to clean behind it. This was not done. Repeated calls over two months with multiple promises and then they started not returning calls. I finally found the owner of the company on line and his email address and contacted him with the complaint. Someone called the next day and scheduled a time to come and fix the stove.

Jamie does excellent work.  He did a beautiful job installing a Bertch faux stone shower surround, installed the toilet, vanity and all the plumbing for the new bath.  He also installed the gas line to the new fireplace and plumbed for a new bar sink with an outlet pump.  Jamie was very accommodating and worked his schedule around the other contractors-electrician, dry wall contractor etc.  In addition, he went out of his way for me-delivering the island cabinet for the bar area from a local cabinet shop when he learned I did not have way for it to be delivered.  Jamie is a fellow who goes out of his way to make his customers happy!  Can't say enough about how happy I am with his work and overall service!

I've contacted Mike Golden for three separate tasks, with wildly varying degrees of satisfaction. 1.  Install a new tankless water heater.  He did a neat job, but was hard to contact, and didn't come with the right tools to do the job.  After one or more trips to the hardware store for drill bits, new drill, plumbing fixtures, etc., the job was complete.  He noted that the vendor's installation manual required a 3/4" gas line connection, but that Mike has had problems connecting that size line to home gas lines because of the size of pressure reducer valve on the outside of the house.  Instead of doing what the manufacturer required, he installed a 1/2" line.  We turned on all the hot water valves and the heater kept up with the demand, so he determined 3/4" pipe was not required, and called the job good.  I wasn't completely happy with that assessment, but it seemed to do the job. 2.  A year later I had a sewer water back up problem, and Mike and his helper were able to determine the problem was associated with roots that had invaded the septic pipe where the pipe met the tank.  Mike did not have the right roto-rooter tool with him, and left for a few hours to round one up.  When he came back, he and his helper were able to successfully clear the problem, and seemed to do the job alright, and cleaned up well.   3.  30 months after the tankless water heater installation was complete, the water heater failed.  I called the heater's official factory certified plumber to troubleshoot it, and he refused to perform warranty work on it when he discovered Mike had incorrectly installed the heater.  The second plumber (Summit) showed me where the heater's air intake and output pipes were not correctly installed per the manufacturer's requirements, which resulted in the intake pipe pulling in exhaust air from the output pipe.  And he found that  1/2" gas line was used instead of the required 3/4" gas line, which causes problems with the unit having to work too hard, and resulted in component failure.  He would not do any further investigation or warranty work (the parts warranty is 36 months on this unit) unless / until the existing installation problems were resolved.  He offered to fix them for me, but I figured I'd have Golden correct the problem. I called up Mike and found two of his listed commercial phones were disconnected. I called his cell phone and left a message.  I left numerous messages until he eventually called back.  He said he'd broken his ankle and would be another week healing, but then would come out.  I understood and waited 10 days before I called him back up. In the mean time I'm without reliable hot water for several weeks.  I made a schedule with him to have him install 3/4" gas line instead of the 1/2" line, and he didn't keep the appointment.  I missed work to be there to let him in.  He did not notify me he had problems or conflicts. I called and called and kept getting his voice mail.  Eventually I called from a new number and  he picked up. We rescheduled and he came without the right supplies, and said he'd run to the hardware store and be back in 45 minutes.  He never showed up again.  Never; not that day, not the next week, and never called.  Perhaps he died. I left numerous messages, without any call backs.  It's as if he recognizes my phone number and screens them so my calls go to voice mail.  If I call from a new cell or a different phone number I might get him to pick up.  But I could not get him to fix his incorrect gas line install. Summit eventually came out and replaced the bad gas line for $500, and I fixed the problem heater intake and exhaust venting, so Summit could troubleshoot the water heater.  It cost me $1500 to get the heater repaired, and took  four visits by Summit to finally get all the problem parts replaced.  In the mean time I was still without reliable hot water. Since Mike never called me back, and since I'm out $1500 for the service required to correct his incorrect installation, I conclude he is unreliable, and I won't do business with him again.  My impression is that he's a nice guy, very easy going, but not prepared and not reliable.  I cannot recommend you work with him.  I'm disappointed--I worked with his father, who is an excellent and reliable gentlemen; I incorrectly assumed Mike would be a chip off the old block. For this to be satisfactorily resolved, Mike must reimburse me for the costs of replacing the gas line and for the service required to the heater as a result of using too small a gas line.  I won't ask for the four days of lost work time I incurred so I could be home for the second plumber to do the additional diagnosis, troubleshooting, and parts replacement / repair, although I think that's a valid request.

This is a 100+ year old house that was vacant and not winterized, so plumbing and heating were the biggest job on the rehab.  Jamie had to replace the boiler and lines, water heater, and find and fix a multitude of broken water lines and fittings.  He would fix some, pressure test, find new ones, fix, and pressure test again.  It was a tedious process, but he got everything up and running within my timeframe.  He bid the job less than others I had bid, but with so many unknowns, it was difficult to know what the final price would be.  I just got his bill and it was less than I expected.  The quality, price, and timeliness of the work were all excellent.  I would definitely use and recommend Jamie to anyone that has plumbing or heating needs.  He earned his straight A's.

AKrause Sheet Metal And Heating & Cooling
Having a heating system go out in January is a stressful experience, however they did well to make this process as easy as possible. Throughout the process of collecting bids, they were the most responsive and really had direct access to answers when needed. When looking to make some changes to the work and bring the cost down, they were able to make changes that helped the job fit into my budget better, without sacrificing too much efficiency or quality. Out of three bids recevied they were the only ones that were able to make this adjustment and ultimately was a factor in choosing them to complete the work. They were able to set a timeline for the work and met that schedule, which again was a relief being without a heating system in January. The day the work was performed, the crew arrived as scheduled and were able to complete the work as scheduled. I was given instructions on the new system, had a few questions answered and received a call from the owner following completion of the work. An issue did come up with one faucet that night, after calling they set a time up and were out first thing in the morning to correct the issue (which occured due to debris in the pipes of my old plumbing). I recevied another follow up call following the completion of that and although only one day after completion feel that the right contractor was chosen for the job. This occuring just days before I will be leaving on vacation, the fact that timelines were kept and the process was made simple has been a great relief. I was informed of a service schedule, what they would perform and covered by the warranty. In the end on top of all the work that was done, they maintained good communication and made such an effort to ensure that I was satisfied with the work. I had received two positive recommendations for them leading up to this and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

ANorthstar Heating and Cooling
On 1/9/18 I contacted the company to inspect my older furnace, due an odd noise in the blower motor, which went away shortly after making the call. A technician arrived that same day, inspected the heat chamber for cracks, performed Co2 , heat temperature rise and pressure tests and determined there was nothing wrong. Because the furnace was 35 years old I decided that it was time to upgrade, anyway and asked to have someone come out and quote a new furnace. The owner of NorthStar heating (Trevor) came out that same day with a recommendation for a furnace and an explanation of the benefits of upgrading to an Amana furnace. The furnace replacement was scheduled on 01/11/18 as a preventative measure, which turned out to be a snow storm day, with temperatures falling from 34F into the single digits. Although I offered to allow them (Northstar) to reschedule to a nicer day, the technicians and company committed to their installation date anyway. The two man team was led by James Nelson the Service / Installation professional. These guys were polite, friendly, knowledgeable and very respectful of my property, along with being very efficient. The total job including removal of the 35 year old furnace, installing the new furnace, modifying the gas line termination, modifying exhaust and intake (PVC) venting, fabricating a new heat plenum and upgrading electrical connections for a new condensate pump, took less than 3 hours, including cleanup. I highly recommend NorthStar Heating and Cooling for furnace installation and maintenance.

ASummit Mechanical Service Inc
I had set up an appointment with a DIFFERENT local Mechanical company and they cancelled within hours of the appointment. So, I checked Angie's List for an alternative and gave Summit a call. I immediately got through to Georgio - he entered me into their system and asked some general questions about the job to be done. I explained the problem I had, and gave him my best guess as to what I needed. He said he had a guy available as we spoke(Friday around lunchtime), and that if I left work right then we'd get to my house at the same time. I said "SIGN ME UP" and took off! Casey, the service tech, arrived at my house just before me. He was quick moving, very friendly, and had the gas detector tool ready to go. I showed him the Propane fireplace where the leak was prevalent, and he quickly identified a medium leak where the compression fitting met the ball valve I had replaced a month earlier. After finding that leak, he said it very well could have been the source to the entire problem I was experiencing. I - being stubborn and wanting to investigate thoroughly, asked if Casey would be willing to walk around in my attic and check for leaks in the line up there. Casey agreed without hesitation! I had a feeling he didn't believe me that there was more to the leak than the one at the ball valve - but you wouldn't know it based on his willingness to dive head first into my fiberglass insulation. We were unable to detect anything in the attic; we searched around for about 30 minutes. We were stumped in trying to figure out where my propane actually came into the house. I had previously thought it came in through an exterior wall. I then asked Casey if we could check in the wall of my fireplace mantle and see if the large leak was originating from there. His sniffer tool immediately read OFL, which was the device's equivalent of "off the charts". Casey then used his snake camera and saw that the main gas line came in up through the floor and tee'd off inside the wall of my mantle. I ran and grabbed my screwdriver and jab saw. We pulled off the oak liner and cut into the wall, revealing a custom welded fitting that had been hemorrhaging gas for 22 years in my wall. Casey said that he didn't have the parts on hand to replace the defect. That was okay with me since I'm fairly handy myself. I ran to menards, picked up a tee, hose, and compression heads. I had pressurized and tested the system within 30 minutes. Problem solved; I couldn't be happier with how things turned out. No more embarrassing/scary gas leak in the living room!
