My best experience in 7 years with this sort of service. Juan, the technician, was great: polite, competent, on time, fast, thorough, no attempt to upsell services or parts I wouldn't need.

Let us preface our review by saying we have an older home which had very specific needs and limited space to work with. It should also be noted that all of these projects needed to be precisely timed around a concurrent foundation repair (I-beams encased in concrete being placed along all of the walls in our basement). Over this past year, Chapman Brothers completed the following repairs for us: -...

I called to schedule a service call. Per their website and Angie’s list, they have $69 service call fee that includes the diagnosis fee. However, the lady I spoke with said the $69 was JUST to send the plumber to my door and DOES NOT include diagnosis. What sort of pricing is this? Who charges for just showing up? Its understandable that a company would charge to come out and diagnose the issue an...

Just wanted to first state thank you for calling Chapman Bros. Plumbing, heating and A/C. However, we did not ever go to your home. All you are stating in this review is that you are not happy with our Service Policy. As we state on Angies List Website and on the phone we do charge a $69.00 Service Fee, which is no secret. Many other companies charge the same type of fee, as well. This is standard...

Tech came to install a water heater today. Was told he would be here between 8am and noon. Showed up at 2:30. I let it slide, I'm used to waiting for contractors. He was here for nearly hours and at the end of the job (we are about to eat dinner), told my husband that he needed him to help him carry the old water heater out of our basement. I had been alone at our house for the majority of the day...

First, I almost never write reviews, good or bad. Usually all the good ones are solicited and most of the bad ones are people who you can't make happy no matter what..and I did say "most". But not this one. With the recent cold snap, I ended up having a burst pipe. Common enough, and as an emergency I feel that even though it took 2 days for them to get me in their schedule it was an excellent res...

First let us address that Chapman worked on your baseboard heating pipes, not your plumbing pipes that had anything to do with or in the proximity of your leaky faucet or hot water in your shower. Neither of these issues would be tied to the problem that we resolved. The pipe which you speak of which burst, which you neglected to write in this review, that the technician also advised you not only ...
