I am very happy with my experience with Drains Inc. My main sewer line was suddenly clogged for no obvious reasons. I brought in a local plumbing company (good online reviews) to check it. Since I do not have an outside cleanout, the plumbers had to rod from the cleanout located in my basement. He rodded 100 feet (maximal length of his rodding machine) but that didn't solve the problem. He suggested to install an outside cleanout, then hydro-jet from there (to avoid making a mess in my basement). This seems a reasonable solution but would take too long a time for us to wait. I called several other companies, checked many online reviews, and finally hired Tim. Tim was very punctual and professional. He first rodded all the way (120 feet) to the street sewer line, then hydro-jet to clean all the sludge away. I was very worried that my basement might be flooded. Thanks to Tim's skill, that did not happen! BTW, always ask your plumber if they have insurance to cover any potential damage. I probably still need to install an outside cleanout to eradicate the problem. But Tim solved the most urgent problem. A good, honest and skillful man. I highly recommend him.
I needed to have my “old” garbage disposal removed as it was leaking. Salvo responded quickly and the price he quoted me was very competitive. Some plumbers wanted twice or even three times as much for this job. Salvo came out to my house the very next day. He not only removed my garbage disposal but upon inspection of the pipes, he replaced all of them and did not want to charge me extra for it. Everything looks great now. Salvo also lays tiles and I will be sure to call him when I need new tiles in my kitchen and bathrooms. Salvo is a true professional and treats his customers with utmost respect. He cares about his work and about his customers. I would highly recommend Salvo to anyone with any plumbing needs. Thank you Salvo for your help! Paul G. (Schaumburg)
Tim is a very nice gentleman. He figured out the problem and fixed it in a day. Till now I had paid two other plumbers who were referred to me . They never could figure out the problem. Now it's fixed. Would highly recommend Tim.
Ron was great! Would definitely use again and recommend to anyone in need of a knowledgeable plumber!
Working with Ara's turned out to be a very good call. My traditional 75 gallon water heater was leaking and I was trying to decide on going tankless. I decided to go hybrid tankless after doing my own research and Gino's (the owner) recommendation based on his own experience. I was able to locate the correct unit on my own, and Gino and Alec showed up when they said they would and removed the old tanks and installed the new unit. They were very professional and worked quickly, the work as far as I can tell is high quality, and the unit is functioning great, eventhough it has been only one day. I was so pleased with the entire experience I think I will be hiring Ara's as my go to plumber if other problems arise. I appreciated Gino's honesty and focus on value. Could not be happier.
Brian responded immediately and showed up at the time we set just a couple hours later. Not only did he complete the job that night but he also answered all my questions and showed me everything I needed to know about my bathroom remodel job I was doing myself. He recommended several solutions to problems I didn’t even realize I had. And they were solutions that didn’t benefit him at all. This is my new plumber. I’ll recommend him to family and friends.
Courteous, very punctual, friendly, and the job was done for less $ than our previous plumber.
I had a wonderful experience contracting with M&T to replace my water heater. The price was decent and service was exceptionally good. The heater broke down on Friday late evening and the new water heater was up and running before noon the next day. I scoped a number of plumbers but ended up with them. Ian was great to work with and so was Michael. I would recommend them any day and to my friends and neighbors. Good service | good price | 5 star service overall. They cleaned up and covered the entire route leading to the boiler room in the basement. I would definitely hire them again ..
After my very unfortunate experience with Ludwig Plumbing out of Lake in the Hills who could not complete this job in 5 weeks and never returned any of my calls, I was very pleased with JDM. Dave came out the same day and completed the work very quickly. He was polite, knowledgeable and good and I highly recommend him for almost any kind of handy man service as well as plumbing.
I needed my garbage disposal replaced along with some work on a bathroom faucet. Wise plumbing came promptly and did a professional job. I could tell the plumber had a lot of experience just by the way he worked. The cost was very reasonable and I found the plumber to be a really nice guy. I usually don't write reviews, but I felt I would recommend Wise to anyone , including my family and friends, That's how good I feel about the service I received.
Mark was my plumber. He came in and fixed my pipe, because I had a main line clog. Very professional. Will definitely be calling them again if I have any issues in the future!
I had a very complex and complicated leak involving my sprinkler system and other water system interactions that ran through the house and out into the yard. John responded to my Thumbtack reply within an hour and agreed to go on-site the same day. In my experience with plumbers in general in the area that is unheard of. My previous interactions with local plumbers in Downers Grove/Darien area was one where they "might" be able to get out there in a few days, and had instances where they just never showed up after they said they would. But not these guys - they were GREAT!!! John called me after hours from the property (I rent the house) and talked me through what his preliminary assessment was. He was ready to proceed the next day but we had some difficulty coordinating the tenant to be there. But John hung in there, directly coordinating over the next few days to arrange for access and to have the water turned off so the work could be done. In the end it turned out to be a very difficult resolution, but John and Do Right Rooter took all the steps necessary to resolve the problem. At the conclusion of the work he spent about 30 minutes on the phone with me explaining the scope of what was done. He volunteered to come back out in the spring before the sprinklers are turned back on to do a more thorough pressure test to ensure there are no other leaks in the systems' interactions. I could not ask for better service and can only recommend the best trades-men service I have had.
Plumber Mark showed up right on time, was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. He made valuable suggestions pertaining to the new disposal that was installed. I would hire this company again, should the need arise. Thank you!!!
Great plumber and a great guy! Also reasonable rates!
I like everything !! Mike, did such a great job with all the work he completed at my house today . I seriously can say Mike deserves more then five stars if possible all across the board. His work quality, his professionalism, his responsiveness, his value of his work and for us as his customers, and his punctuality was beyond what I could ever expect. Especially considering this cold weather and that I had already tried to contact 6 other plumbers who could not and wouldn’t even come out until Monday. Thank you Mike!
'Did an excellent job installing support for floor beams that was cut by plumbers installing new water line.
John is very professional, knowledgeable about what he is doing, over 20 years of experience and he is a very nice, humble plumber. His price is very reasonable and upfront which means no hiding cost. He lets you know the cost of job before he starts and he stick with the price doesn't matter how long and how difficult it takes. I hired him through Thumbtack to work on my blocked kitchen discharge pipe that he spent lot more time than his estimation because I have a very large house and pipe line goes over 60 feet, and he didn't complain and didn't charge me extra and he just got that job done perfect. If you are looking for someone who is hard working, responsible, good price, John is your man!
I couldn't be happier with Chad and Wayne. Communications were awesome, the work was awesome, the value was awesome and to top it all off they are sooo nice. I recommend anyone in need of a plumber to hire these guys.
Wow!!! What can I say, Tom and Harry are amazing. I called around because I needed my sewer line rodded and it was complety clogged, like an explosion of toilet paper and "ahem" you know everywhere. I called a few plumbers and they walked in the door and had standard prices. Long story short. 1st quote was $655 , 2nd quote $295. I used the second plumber and they were completely inexperienced and deceptive. They messed up the sewer gate valve and had to be called back out and they tried to charge me to complete the job they didn't complete and wrote the bill up for 450 instead of 295. Needless to say I went to Thumbtack to find another plumber and Tom responded immediately and we spoke a few times and said he'd stop by and look at it free of charge. Well he determined that he could do the job and the price to rod the line was great, they came over on Tuesday in the evening and started rodding with the electric eel, and reached roots and other things and the line was still clogged. They stayed until 9pm and came back the next day , they needed more line and came back finished the job the next day and got my sewer unclogged. Just wow, they went the extra mile and saw some other items that could use a quick repair and were more than reasonable. Hire Tom and Harry! They don't have a book with set prices like the big guys. Straight forward and very friendly. I was quoted absolutely ridiculous amounts for removal of the old sewer gate and back flow valve inside and install a new clean out in the yard. Tom quoted me a price I can't say no to!! We're scheduling this install in July or August. Give Tom a try, the level of workmanship, professionalism , quality , HONESTY, reliability are second to none. I wouldn't hesitate to call the guys that get it done. Trust me this is a real review, so happy I didn't need to take a mortgage out and get a second job to fix the issue. Thank you Tom and Harry.
I would like to say thank you to KBI for their professionalism. All of the workers went above and beyond the call of duty. They were so polite and my wife felt very safe throughout the entire process. I dont know what im looking at or the first thing from plumbing. I just know that you flush the toilet and whatever waste is in there should flush. That is not what happened. My toilet started making a gurgling noise and bubbles came up. I was freaking out and immediately posted what occurred on thumbtack. Within minutes I had three quotes. I looked at all 3 websites and I went with KBI because of the military background. Always trying to give my hard earned money to the ones that allow me to have my freedom. Its nice to know there are still great people in this world. Thank you KBI we picked the best company for sure and you solved our problem. I already told all my neighbors that KBI is our go to plumber. Thanks again.
Patrick did a great job updating 2 shower valves and rerouting sink plumbing for a kitchen remodel. He even updated some piping to code that was not part of the original work scope. He was very helpful in recommending the right valves and future maintenance. Patrick was also very careful with his tile cuts as that was are only access point. He made a perfect cut that is easy to patch without damaging any other surrounding tiles. Highly recommended and definitely will be my Go To plumber from now on. I even have him coming back for some addition work.
