PK was excellent, professional, and reasonably priced. They went out of their way to help. My phone was down also, and they kept in contact with me via e-mail as to arrival time, and as to what I could expect, and even let me use their phone to make some important calls. The price quoted was 'by the job', whether it took an hour or six hours, so there were no surprises or add-ons. I don't like plumbers, as a matter of fact, this repair was the result of a botched, way overpriced repair by another contractor. PK changed my opinion. I would HEARTILY recommend using them for your job, and I will certainly use them again, if necessary.

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.

I was really very pleased with Chris' service. He was very professional. One thing that I was really impressed with was his punctuality with contacting me when I had some questions. Ludwig plumbing went beyond what I expected and did the job in a acceptable amount of time and an affordable price. I had about 5 other plumbers over to look at the work needed to be done. The other plumbers failed me by not contacting me after they gave me the quote. They didn't follow up. I had Chris install a tankless water heater, water softener and water filter. Our family is very pleased with the level clean and hot water we now have. I highly recommend Ludwig plumbing for all your plumbing needs. I will hire again without hesitation.

Jacob helped me to replace a bathtub valve that was cut out and capped by a previous plumber who charged me an arm and a leg to cap 3 pipes. Jacob quoted a very reasonable price and even though the job took him twice as long as anticipated due to complications, he maintained his quoted price. Jacob did an awesome job configuring, replacing and soldering over 15 joints to replace the valve due to the poor planning and workmanship of my previous plumber. Jacob is also a kind caring gentleman who took the time to learn my plumbing system and explain his work in great detail. If look forward to using Jacob for all of my construction needs including finishing my basement.

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.

I was very happy with the service I received. I got a phone call when before the plumber came out so I wasn't home waiting all day. He gave me a price before he did the work and got my water heater working again. I thought the customer service was excellent and won't hesitate to use them again.

Guenther did a great job installing my toilet. He came with a helper, and the two of them got the job done quickly. He was even able to pick the toilet up at the store for me which was a big help. His price was great. I would hire Guenther again for a plumbing job.

I do residential service plumbing. I also work with sewers and drains, roddings, repairs, and replacements. I work with water heaters, and pumps are serviced and replaced.


We are licensed plumbers with the knowledge and experience that "handy man" companies do not have. We also use a state of the art color camera with DVR and new rodding equipment. We care for our customers property and are always clean and courteous.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What are plumbers and what do they do?

    Plumbers are skilled professionals who are trained to install and maintain pipes and systems for drinking water, sewage and drainage. They usually have trained through four- to five-year training programs, which include apprenticeships, via trade schools and community colleges. Plumbers’ areas of expertise typically go beyond pipes to include mathematics, blueprint reading, plumbing codes and water distribution. They handle plumbing emergencies, such as broken pipes or clogged drains, and install and maintain everything from a new piping system to a replacement faucet. Plumbers also know how to install bathtubs and showers, toilets, water heaters and dishwashers. Plumbers may work on residential or commercial sites, sometimes designing and laying out a pipe system during construction.

    How do you find a good plumber?

    Whether you need a plumber to perform drain repair, install a new fixture, or replace rusty pipes, you need to make sure you hire someone reliable who will finish your job on time and within budget. Start by asking the plumbers on your short list these questions:

    • What is the total cost? Make sure your estimate includes materials and labor. Find out whether the plumber will be providing the materials and whether you’re being charged an hourly rate (which is variable) or a flat fee.
    • Is removal and cleanup included in the job? Some plumbers leave behind old parts, while others include the cleanup in the cost.
    • Is the work guaranteed? Find out whether the work (as well as the parts or fixtures) are guaranteed under a warranty.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
