Our new rental home warranty plumbing coverage does not include tile work, but the plumber they dispatched needs a bigger opening behind the mixer on the tile shower wall to confirm the source of the leak. I hired Arisel from AA Cardenas Construction to help me with the tile work. I would have hired him for the plumbing work itself if I had known him earlier and had got to choose my own technician under warranty. From the get-go responding to my Thumbtack request for quote to finishing the job, Arisel had been very responsive, professional, friendly, punctual and helpful. The job was beautifully done! While I was writing the check, knowing the job is being contracted to Home Warranty company Arisel still took the initiative to inspect the leak checking the ceiling downstairs and share with me what he thought the problem might be. With him pointing out, I was convinced that he was spot on! Arisel is apparently a hard working, honest and friendly young man! I will definitely hire him again for future jobs. I highly recommend Arisel.
A superior master plumber. Jose figured out thr problem that had baffled other plumbers, and fixed it ON THE SPOT. Plus charged me only $125. I have found my new SF plumber. Thanks!
Hi was friendly, helpful, fast and showed up exactly on time. Contrary to many plumbers I've dealt with, he didn't try to push me into spending lots of money. Instead, he recommended solutions that saved me money, even if that meant less profit for him.
Ray is one if the most experienced and knowledgeable plumbers I've come across. He can fix anything fast and efficiently. He's very courteous and respects your property. He doesnt make a mess. I'm very impressed with his manners. Highly recommended.
Erik is a real decent guy trying to make an honesty living...Th tole us that you have to be very careful when hiring a plumber, in that some plumbers who work for big companies are on a commission basis and need to "upsell" to make any money. So Erik started his own plumbing company. Even thought he had to come back the next day in order to finish a complication with the faucet, he stuck to his reasonable bid. I would certainly recommend him.
He gave me a straight simple solution and price that other plumbers made out to be monumental.
I had a clogged shower drain and Max sent two of his plumbers (Chris and Corey) the next business day to fix it. They were professional and courteous. Unfortunately, the issue was more severe than expected, but Chris found a workaround that will hopefully be less expensive. Some follow up work still needs to be done, but I'm hopeful that it won't be too involved.
My newly installed water heater stopped pumping hot water on a late Saturday afternoon. I panicked as we have young children in the house and needed the problem fixed immediately. No plumber was available to come in the same day on short notice. I contacted Byron and within less than an hour he was at my house and was able to fix the problem. He was very professional and explained what the issues were. Byron saved us from disastrous weekend without hot water!
Best plumber by far. Ways responsive, keeping me posted with every update. Was exactly on time and ready to go to work. His prices are great, and the workmanship is flawless. If you need a plumber, this is the guy to call.
I hired Gusanito to install porcelain tiles in my bathroom. He was very prompt--being the first contractor to contact me on thumbtack--and quickly responded to my text messages whenever I had a question. He takes his time and is very detailed in his work. He is also willing to help you with other problems. For example, in addition to installing the tiles, I also wanted to change my sink faucet and shower handles. He agreed to do the extra work at a reasonable price. The tile installation went smoothly, however, we ran into plumbing issues which he couldn't solve. I'm giving him four stars because I hired him on thumbtack for tile installation services, not plumbing. Nonetheless, he agreed to bring his cousin (who is an experienced plumber) over the next day to change my sink faucet at no extra cost. The total work took about two full days to complete, but I'm sure it would have been less if we didn't run into the plumbing issues. So I recommend him but make sure you talk with him thoroughly about what you want to accomplish.
Routine water heater swap - yeah right. What started out as thinking our water heater was broken, turned out to be a long overdue clogged sewer lateral. Worst case scenario. While I'm not that happy about the sewage overflow situation which could have been better mitigated (and we still need to beach the hell out of that room), the solutions and options offered by Ali were professional and spoke of his experience. To unclog the piping, snaking was attempted but failed, hydrojetting was attempted but failed (with a mess of sewage). Finally we got a camera down there to find a wall of something about 50 feet down from the mechanical room to a spot under the sidewalk. Digging 4 feet down, to find actually a pretty good condition clay lateral. Ali's man Valentino (a skilled gentleman), cut the clay and replaced it with a riser in order to install a cleanout for future maintenance. Once done, they hydrojetted for another hour to clear 7-8 months worth of waste. The camera was once again sent through to find that a portion of the clay lateral had shifted and created uneven surfaces including some penetration of tree roots. While most plumbers would probably recommending an immediate replacement, Ali recommended that since it wasn't fully collapsed, we should simply clear out the lateral as routine maintenance rather than spend all the money to replace the pipe. I appreciate his direct communication, no sales pitch, and brief coaching through the process. While I do have 10 yrs of construction experience, and his price was not the cheapest, he certainly delivered on time and without any sense of price gouging.
These guys are great but they are a big company and therefore you are going to pay big company prices. They came out the same day to help us with our plumbing issue and took care of it quickly and efficiently. Additionally, I spoke with two dispatchers and two plumbers and all of them were incredibly professional and polite. If you have an emergency and need a plumber asap, I highly recommend Mr. Rooter.
Best experience I've ever had with a plumber. Gerardo was easy to communicate with, showed up on time, was clean, and fixed my toilet problem shockingly fast. He even had the correct replacement part on hand when he showed up to the job. Highly recommend and will be calling him again!
Max is a great plumber. He is an expert in home plumbing and had the best recommendations and advice to offer. If one thing could be better, make sure you tell him exactly what you want, esp. when using exotic furniture / items and complex installs. Finally, he offers very fair pricing, so we were really happy to work with him.
I have worked with multiple plumbers over the years and I can say without hesitation that Ganzo is the best plumber that I have ever worked with. Excellent, quality work at a fair price. We couldn't be happier with the experience. If you need a plumber don't hesitate to contact Ganzo. You will be happy you did.
Tony promptly returned my calls, texts and emails. He was on time, worked efficiently and with care. I've worked with several plumbers in the east bay and Tony is hands down the best.
Communication was great- they responded to our request very quickly and were able to come fast. However, our drain problem was in a multi-unit condo, and possibly beyond the scope of their equipment/capabilities. They used a 20 ft snake that ultimately got stuck in our system. We had to escalate to our building management, who brought out plumbers used to commercial properties and eventually resolved over a couple weeks. Not the plumber's fault, as they were not able to know the extend of our drain issues. 5 stars for communication and effort, 3 for incomplete resolution - so 4 star average.
Our old tank water heater started leaking, and we were interested in getting a tankless unit. I had three plumbers come take a look. The first two pointed out that the gas line was 1/2" which severely limited our tankless options. David was the only one to take a quick look in the attic space and see that the gas line was actually 3/4" right up to just behind the wall on the other side of the heater, where it was brought down to 1/2", making for an easy fix. That alone saved us a lot of money and headache, I think. David did the replacement efficiently and professionally, our new unit looks good and is working great. I'm glad I found him, he does quality work and I'd happily hire him again in the future.
Damiano was great! Good communication and spent the time to sniff out the underlying problem (rather than my non-expert diagnosis) and to fix it. Above and beyond.
Working with Filipe was great. He was fast to figure out how to re-route a pipe and did it with superb skill. He also helped remove a few old pipes we didn't need anymore. I will for sure call him again for my plumbing needs.
Benjamin did a great job of diagnosing the problem and fixed it on the same day. He was very thorough and up front (no gimmicks). Will definitely hire him again.
