Holy moly is Ray fantastic! We had a leak coming from a ball valve on a an outside pipe leading to the sprinkler system. Just moved to the area, so we called someone else (one of the first names that popped up on yelp) who came out and quoted $450 to cut the valve off and replace it. Then I talked to Ray and sent him some photos. Over the phone he told me he didn't need to come out because it was ...

Mr Triola promptly returned my call and rather than charge for a Sunday emergency call, was able to patiently, calmly and professionally guide us with instructions to stop our leak over the phone. Furthermore, he offered over the phone assistance if we performed the rest of the repairs ourselves... all at no charge! Needless to say, I will be saving his contact information and will use his company...

Ray knows what he’s doing, but he’s an over-communicator and seems confused. Had to be led through providing an invoice (by email) for the homeowner, who I represent. Way too many calls from Ray, to me and to her.

Why I liked working with Ray: He is very straight forward. I let him know what I needed (replace a toilet for a small bathroom), he asked questions, researched the costs and let me know, then he picked up the items, showed up on time, installed the toilet, took away the old and cleaned up. Boom it was done! Ray was also available on Saturday which helped us out a lot.

When Mr. Triola called me back and asked me to describe the problem, he told me I could easily fix it myself. He provided simple instructions which I easily and quickly carried out, and they worked. Thus I did not need him to come to my home, and he gave up a fee-producing engagement. However, I was sufficiently impressed by his professionalism that I know I will call him the next time I am in nee...

Ray is very knowledgeable and experienced, works fast, explains it all. He also replaced old galvanized pipe with copper under the house (tough job, OUCH); installed Speakman showerhead, new mechanism in TOTO toilets, backflushed all our pipes. IN the six years I've known him, he has definitely been our go-to guy. Though he was always busy, he still always fits us in. GREAT PLUMBER.

Ray is a great plumber. He's a busy guy who takes on large, multi-day projects, but was able to fit in my residential re-plumbing project. He replaced most of the galvanized steel with copper, and the majority of the cold line from the street. He took the time to explain things I didn't understand, and helped create a schedule that would work for my budget. I have more plumbing work lined up for R...

Overall it went well. This was a routine job -- not an emergency. It took a few weeks for Ray to furnish a quote for the new toilets, which he supplied as part of the job. Two of my 3 old toilets did not easily break free from the floor tiles (one had been caulked 25 years ago by a plumber, one by me). We solved this problem by hammering a long screwdriver between the toilet and floor, then using ...

We scheduled an appointment to determine the scope and cost for the job. He was only available for the following week. On the day of the appointment he called and said, he was in San Rafael and would be there most of the day. All the while eluding that he was busy, during our appointment time, So, I said it for him. You are not able to make today's appointment. He said, yes and wanted to reschedul...
