Recent Review: Elmer Calix is the most responsive plumber I have ever used, and I refuse to hire anybody other than him. He is punctual, works around my own schedule, and is courteous and professional. His services have been excellent, and if something needed a minor tweak, he came back and fixed it without any questions asked. I had a new sink installed when we renovated the kitchen and Calix Plumbing cut down the old pipes under the sink, soldered and installed new pipes, connected everything and then came back and tightened it all up after some wear and tear, all to my great satisfaction. He also responded to an emergency leak situation. Prices are what can be expected for Northern Virginia, but you will get your money's worth with this fine plumber.
Recent Review: The technician was very professional and very clean. Service was completed in about an hour with no incident. One of the best experiences I have had with a plumbing service. I highly recommend Belle View plumbing for any of your plumbing needs. I will definitely use them again.
Recent Review: We purchased a deal for a kitchen appliance tune-up and garbage disposal inspection. Our garbage disposal was only a few months old, so we didn't really need that part of the deal. That inspection went quickly. The tune-up helped with ensuring our refrigerator coils were clean. They also found that our oven temperature had been improperly calibrated and resolved that issue so we can now cook things at their proper temperature.
Recent Review: Very high quality work and professionalism. Extremely knowledgeable about every facet of plumbing. Very trustworthy and dependable. Best plumber I've ever worked with -- I would recommend him to anyone.

Quick response to our inquiry by Mark. We scheduled a time, he did a careful, very good job replacing the garbage disposal. And installed disposal adapter. We have had Mark Coleman before, always excellent.

I called them at 10:30am, and they were at my house at 1:30pm. They were very pleasant, and quickly assessed the need for a replacement disposal. They went to Home Depot and picked it up, replaced the disposal, and were done in less than 90 minutes (including the trip to Home Depot). I was pleased with the ability to get a same day appointment, and their quick service! I did not feel that they were trying to add on time to obtain more money from me. The total cost included the cost of the disposal.

The servicemen found that the garbage disposal had rusted and could no longer be used. The garbage disposal hadn't been run in over a year. The price of replacing the garbage disposal with the same make/model and installing the garbage disposal caused a followup visit on 9/24/2010 for about 1/2 hour. On 9/23/2010 I went through each item above that was fixed or replaced. Everything ran smoothly. I would hire Charles H. Finn and Son again for my future plumbing needs. Excellent work and service.

Mr. Coleman did a fine job in replacing our garbage disposal. The price quoted included the garbage disposal (valued at $100). So, I think $270 for 30 min of work is rather high.

I came home from vacation and found myself with a clogged kitchen drain, a garbage disposal that wasn't working, and a large leak underneath the sink. I called them at 1:30 pm and they told me they could have someone here between 3 pm and 4 pm the same day. Two men arrived at 3:30 pm and quickly fixed the garbage disposal. However, my leak was caused by the disposal seal being faulty, so they recommended I upgrade to a better disposal since the one I had (installed by the developer of a condo overhaul) was the cheapest and crappiest on the market. I asked them what they would recommend, and they told me I could get a Beaver 5 from a hardware store for $100. They said I could also get it from them, though it would be more expensive: $160. (How can you not love such disclosure?) I asked if they had a replacement disposal with them that they could install right then, which they did, so I told them to go ahead. I might have been able to save $60 by going to the hardware store myself, but I would still need to call someone out again for labor, and I preferred to have the problem fixed in one go. They were done by 4:15 pm, but they only charged me for 30 min. of labor and $150 for the disposal. The two were amiable and informative whenever I asked "idiot new homeowner" questions. Seriously cannot beat the response time and price. I would definitely call them for any future plumbing needs.

McCarthy Service is a SCAM. DO NO USE THEM. I made an appointment with McCarthy Service for an appointment for a free estimate to replace a Garbage Disposal. The technical stated that he was never informed about a FREE ESTIMATE. Since I had a $100 coupon for labor, the Tech installed the garbage disposal. When the Tech gave me the bill, he charged me $395.00 to install the Garbage Disposal. When I complained about the price, I was told that this is what they charge for a customer provided garbage disposal with no warranty. The Tech refused to reduce the price. The going rate to install a customer's provided garbage disposal range from $50 to $75 with a maximum of $100.

I think they were right on time. They put the garbage disposal in the wrong place. It goes down into the garbage disposal then goes across and then goes down the other side. It is two sided.

We had a leaking garbage disposal. I contacted several providers on Angie's List, and Herndon Plumbing and Heating was quick to respond and could schedule an appointment in a few days. They had good reviews and were located only about 15 minutes away from my home, so I went with them. Ahead of the appointment, I'd gone to Home Depot and bought a replacement disposal unit just in case it needed replaced. So I had that on hand, just sitting in the living room. It was about $75 for the disposal unit I bought. Dave arrived on time and was quite friendly. He quickly tested the unit (about 5 minutes) and said the whole thing needed to be replaced. I asked how much this would cost, and he said it would be about $300 total to replace for parts + labor and could be done quickly. This seemed pretty expensive to me, so I mentioned that I already had a replacement unit and showed him. He said it would work fine and could do the replacement right now. About 40 minutes later he was finished, showing me the unit functioning as good as new. He'd gotten one part from his truck, but other than that it was a simple and quick replacement. Imagine my surprise when the bill was $215, minus my $25 "new customer" discount, for a total of $190 for less than an hour of labor. Did Herndon Plumbing and Heating do good work? Yes. Did they overcharge? Probably. Will I use them again? Probably not.

Jermaine was on time and very courteous and professtional. I purchased the garbage disposal myself so the only service required was the installaition of the garbage disposal. Jermaine inspected and found two other problems that need to be taken care of and provided estimates. His work and professionalism and knowledge made me trust and respect his work. He did leave the old disposal and trash which I disposed of. I purchased the Angie's List deal for $99.00 for $200 worth of services. I was charged the full $200. I did think this was high for installing a garbage disposal that I had purchased. So the total for the whole job was $300 -- (this includes what I paid for the garbage disposal) so I do think the installation of the garbage disposal was too high.

I was really happy with them all the way around. He even replaced the garbage disposal when I asked him to do it while he was at my home; he worked hard to accomodate me. I also had the garbage disposal ahead of time - all he did was the labor.
