Excellent, I have already recommended to 2 people. One of them already had services completed. I alerted Goode Plumbing of the second person and left positive feedback on their voicemail.

I hired Goode based on their excellent reviews and their price didn't seem out of the range I expected. I was excited to have finally hired a company based on reputation, not price. I may have set my expectations too high. The salesperson quoted me for a cast iron backwater valve with a cover that would sit flush with the floor, and camera and rodding would be included. I called to schedule and Go...

Hello Member, After seeing this review, I immediately pulled our manager into the office and spoke to him about what happened. He reached out to you and set up a time for he and I to visit the jobsite this Friday-I look forward to meeting with you. We are better than this. I apologize for the issues, and we will make sure things are right. I tout regularly that we are not the least expensive, but ...

I agreed to having my grease 87 y/o trap pulled out and only piping to main line. The job was done well, I have had no problems since, the crew was nice and clean. The problem came in that it took FOUR visits for what would have been one all day job due to poor communication in the office and for this, I had to give a lower grade. I work swing shifts so my daytime hours are at a premium. Issues we...

I am truly sorry for this. I am glad that you were happy with the work, but agree that our communication was missing in this situation. We were a bit backlogged, and were off of our game with this job-no excuses, as we want to do a great job, every time, in every aspect. If I can do anything to help make up for the inconvenience, please feel free to call or text me at (773) 930-3451. Our manager d...

With six inches of rain in a 24 hour period, our sump pump failed and our finished basement flooded. The installer Mikey was great. The cost, in hindsight, was anything but great. My total cost was $4591.00, "member pricing" which I earned by spending an addl $520.00 on a two-year membership / maintenance plan. So, altogether, I was $5111.00 out of pocket. Goode, like many home contractors, is opa...

Thank you for youre review, Member, and for using us for this work. I am glad that you happy with the work. I really do value every single client, so I will go over your concerns about the pricing. You found an online price for the system that was much lower than what we pay for one. How or why? I am not sure. We do not buy items for clients online because we have had issues in the past: some item...

Goode Plumbing was exceptional! They came out next day and explained the cause and solution to my issue. They even sent a scope through the line to show me where the obstruction was located. I will definitely use Goode again. Drew from Goode Plumbing really helped me out with a huge problem, and I can't thank them enough!

After torrential rains, we ended up with some water in the basement. Goode came out quickly -- same day that I called -- and Drew rodded out the sewer line. This helped some, but after video review of the sewer line, before and after , the real issue was revealed to be an abundance of silt collecting in low spots , something that no amount of rodding was going to cure. Rodding just stirs it up, th...

Thank you for the review on Angie's List! I am very glad that things worked out well. As you mentioned, rodding is not always the best solution for cleaning a drain or sewer line out- in this case, hydro jetting was the best answer.

There are a lot of ways a tub can fail and leak water, especially if the installation is sketchy or if there are questions about the caulking. Despite low visibility, a poor installation job and general ambiguity around the leak, Goode did a great job of communicating where they thought the issue was occurring. Goode provided an immediate solution (re-applying caulk around the tub), as well as a l...
