Did not happen. It was scheduled 3 days in advance, but I was late returning a confirmatory phone call. I called at 5:00 PM, but no one was there. I did leave a message giving them the OK to come in the morning. I called again early the next morning, when the workers did not show at 7:30. I was informed that I was taken off the schedule due to the communication issue and asked if I wanted to resch...

Tim, the repairman, arrived within a day of my call to schedule a visit. We had hoped that the problem was a bad thermocouple but his diagnosis was that the gas valve wouldn't open. We accepted his recommendation, in light of the heaters age, to replace the heater. LM took about 2 days to get pricing together and gave us an estimate of about $1500+ all in. I felt that was higher than expected. So,...

I asked for a quote though this site. Louis Mechanical Contractors called the same day and listened while I explained the problem. They scheduled for next day. The guy called to let me know he's on way. He showed up on time and it took him an hour to find out what's wrong and fixed the problem. The only thing that bother me is the service bill is a bit pricey but worth it. A week later, I received...

Job was done well. My only complaint is that I requested that a leak in the quarter-turn valves under the bathroom sink be repaired. These valves were replaced with lower-quality compression valves. Since I'd had the quarter-turn valves installed by another plumber specifically for the benefits, this was disappointing. On the whole they did a reasonable job.

I offer my sincere apologies. After discussing with our receptionist and dispatcher, I was given the work order that was written up for your service call. Unfortunately, your phone number was not taken when the call came in. Our receptionist tried, to no avail, to find a phone number for you. She was hoping that you would call back because we had no way to contact you. This is why you never receiv...
