Plumbing Drain Repair
We hired LoProstis to assist with a water heater issue in our home. Brian, from LoProstis, called us right away for an initial consultation over the phone, and within an hour, he arrived at our house to explain what went wrong and the course of action needed to repair the water heater. We appreciated his honesty and the accuracy of his quote in order to fix the issue, but more importantly, we appreciated the education that came along with it. Not only did Brian install a new water heater in our home; he also help us to select a reputable brand, based on his recommendation and hauled away the old water heater. He did not compromise on his professionalism to charge a higher fee (given the fact it was a weekend and one of the coldest day of the year), nor use that as an opportunity for a surcharge. It's very rear to find an honest contractor and who's willing to do the right thing, and Brian has both. He exceeded our expectations and got up and running within hours. We would definitely hire Brian again. Thank you for your hard work and excellent service, Brian.Dec 19, 2016Verified
Sink or Faucet Installation or Replacement
He came out at the end of October to repair a leaking sink, but unfortunately, did not return until January, and then texted I needed the right sink, as it didn't fit the part! He is obviously not returning and it is disappointing he couldn't just admit he'd not obtained the correct part. The guy then sent threatening texts to my tenant and me, upset with the 3-star rating. He states I made a claim to Thumbtack which they rejected, which is nonsensical, as Thumbtack doesn't take 'claims' and there was nothing to claim as Lo Prestis was not paid as the work was not completed by him, but by another plumber.Mar 21, 2019Verified
Plumbing Pipe Installation or Replacement
Brian responded promptly to my inquiry, and we had a telephone conversation Where he indicated he would come by the next day at approximately 10:00 a.m. but ask me if I were flexible enough for him to come sooner and I agreed. About 11:30 Ami called his cell phone and did not get an answer and then I sent a text message asking for an ETA. I still have not heard from Brian , a complete waste of time periodOct 23, 2018VerifiedLoPrestis Services & More's reply

So amazing! They even took out my garbage on my back porch and I couldn’t be happier with my decision to work with Brian. Highly recommended!Aug 30, 2018Verified
Plumbing Pipe Repair
First, he’s a super nice and friendly guy. Second, he will not rip you off. His prices are very reasonable (incomparable in Chicago). Third, he gets the job done. He did a kitchen faucet install for me, and even looked around at a few of the pipes I had done DIY to make sure there weren’t any other issues. He is now my go-to Chicago plumber. He also does electrical if you’re interested.Aug 23, 2018Verified
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I started doing this work when I was 15 yrs old. I'm 34 now. As a young kid I was always amazed and always loved watching a building get put together.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Do your Homework on your contractor. On these larger contracts get to no them before you sign. If he comes off as a closer trust me you don't want him, if he shows up getting dropped off by ubber, trust me you don't want him.
