I take reviews very seriously as it is very difficult to navigate among many so called 'specialists' and wasted time and/or money is not fun. (Been there, done that). Personal references and honest reviews are the only way to get a real professional, save money and we, consumers, need to help each other. So here is my input.
Before Avea Group, I hired 4 (four!) plumbers, 2 from here, and they all were beyond bad. Never on time, poor quality, unskilled, left broken fixtures, leaking pipes, I had problems with plumbing inspector and wasted thousands of dollars...
Now about AVEA Group.
Through friend's referral, I found and used this plumber several times and now can attest fully to his skills and work quality.
1. Skills: crazy good. Unbelievable. Guy knows it all inside and out. Knows residential and commercial plumbing, heating, gas, carpentry, general contracting, masonry and most of the trades. His skills and advice saved me a lot of money.
2. Work ethics: don't get me started. I never saw anything like that. He drove 1.5 hour one way to my house for 3 weeks and showed up every day at 6am sharp. Left every day at 10pm, only because I insisted, he would stay longer. Somebody here said about him "Azat is a machine'. Totally correct, he is a machine, ethical, professional, determined, flawless machine. If he gives you a time frame, he will deliver no matter what.
3. Professionalism: A++++++. Squeaky clean, reliable, polite, well mannered, well educated, neat, you would never think he is a plumber. (No offence to others but those I had.....)
4. Quality of work: Unparalleled. I never thought that pipes and boilers can be esthetically beautiful. I have photos 'before and after' but cant upload them here for some reason.
5. Chances of passing inspection by town hall: I have properties in 3 towns and it was clear that those plumbing inspectors know Azat's quality well. Guy has an excellent reputation at town halls' building departments-very important!
6. Personal qualities and ease to deal with: he is a great guy! Honest, very decent, has great personality and a sense of humor. Such a pleasure to deal with!
Summary: I personally will never use another plumber and I highly recommend Azat to anyone.
