Travis and Stefan were polite, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. They gave us the straight story on what needed to be done, at no charge for the diagnostic, and were very careful to keep things clean and tidy while searching the problem. Will definitely use them again.

TJ was the man! He came in and was great with our dog and son. After an introduction and brief assessment he got right to work unplugging our kitchen.

A wrong turn at the junction would have meant risk of damage to an adjacent unit’s plumbing. Under heavy pressure and a dog...

It went excellent! Very prompt. Great communication, I never had to guess about times, price or anything.

Most excellent, i do not give straight A's easily, knowledgeable, patient, very good at explaining the findings. Interesting that when i called another company for a second opinion and mentioned Bob Oates had done the inspection, they said it would be a waste of my money as it was highly unlikely they would find anything Bob Oates missed. Great company, great people. I also had them out in 2015 - ...
