    The Pipe Doctor Plumbing Service
    They came and was sure to cover their shoes and was also wearing masks, I explained the problem, they explained everything to me about what needed to be done, then fixed the problem (one piece had to be replaced and the other needed a repair) and made sure to double check the work and walked me through it. Very professional, very clean, very courteous and 5% discount for seniors!

    The Pipe Doctor Plumbing Service
    The problems were strange and required some investigation. The team first focused on the washer drainage. Eventually they used a camera inserted into the clearance pipe to check the drainage pipe from the house to the septic tank. They discovered a "dip" in the pipe, possibly resulting in an obstruction that might have caused the water to back up, kind of like a rock in a stream. (Admittedly, I may not describe this as clearly as I should...not a plumber!). Using shovels and an excavator, they dug about 5 feet into the ground between the house and the septic tank, ultimately discovering both the dip/weakening in the pipe and a 3" crack (almost half of the pipe) closer to the house. I feel like their work saved us much more money down the road, because without investigating/fixing the "dip" in the pipe, we would never have know about that crack. Without repair, it could would likely have begun leaking back into the foundation. The team was able to replace a 10' section of pipe, connect it to the septic, and confirm a steady drain of water. We have not had the backup or any drainage issues since. However, the smell didn't completely leave the laundry room. They came out again and, after a couple of smoke tests and cuts into the drywall, discovered a vent pipe that had in years past (we've owned the house for 5 years) simply been cut to move the washing machine hookups to the side wall (rather than the back). Although the smoke largely discharged through the roof vents as designed, this uncapped vent allowed septic odors to creep back into the washing room, particularly in the morning when the air outside was heavier. They were able to cap the pipe, and that removed the odor. We have not had any issues since they completed their work. The team was very responsive, and worked with me to reschedule the washing room work after a death in one of the worker's family...only slipped a single day. They also reduced the cost for disconnecting/moving the washer and dryer, since they didn't reconnect them (We were of course going to have to do get drywall repair/paint work after they finished). Although I am hoping to avoid any plumber issues for a while, I know who I will call if something comes up. Absolutely recommend this team.

    Anthony & Sylvan Pools
    We hired Anthony and Sylvan to build a new pool for us. We met with the design consultant, he gave us a great price, and we signed up. We got some issues with the local zoning board that Anthony and Sylvan resolved. Once those issues were resolved, installation went smoothly and no issues were encountered.

    Phoenix Home Services Inc
    Overall Phoenix did a fantastic job with this project. Despite the current COVID environment, they were here everyday getting the job done. Communication was good, and we did not have any hiccups or addendums that weren't previously discussed from the original scope of the job. We did have some issues with the re-surfacing of the hardwood floors, but Phoenix went out of their way to ensure we were satisfied with the end product. They were fantastic to accommodate us on certain items based on our budget; one thing that stood out to us was this feature. We are so happy we found them and our house is better than we imagined it would be from the initial drawings. We hope to work with them again on other projects for our home.

    Anthony & Sylvan Pools
    Anthony & Sylvan is an exceptional company. The Project Manager was involved daily and very hands on. Most impressive, they were timely at every stage of the project and responsively addressed questions. The New Pools Scheduler was beyond professional and courteous and he truly helped to ensure everything remained on target. This outstanding service stemmed from the very top -- we cannot speak highly enough about the General Manager -- his ability to mitigate obstacles and make the experience free of worry not only reflected his utmost concern for customer satisfaction, but was genuine and a rare quality in today's busy world. Anthony & Sylvan, with the excellent efforts of these individuals, deserves an A+ in all parameters. I would highly refer them to anyone.
