Having Mike Sherlock as my only plumbing pro for 15 years has been a true pleasure. He is prompt, efficient and, always does an undeniably complete job...the first time. Importantly, his clean-up after a job is unbelievable. Additionally, his rates are equitable for the plumbing service he provides. I wholeheartedly recommend Mike for any plumbing need, large or small, that arises.



We've been using Mike as our plumber for over 25 years.

Prompt, courteous, VERY efficient and above all, great work.

Never a call back.

No more plumbing panic for this single mom. Micheal Sherlock has taken care of my leaky faucets, appliance hook-ups and DIY catastrophes for over 20 years. His emergency services are fast and his charges are incredibly reasonable. Mike is top-notch among professionals!

Professional, fast, reasonable! He has handled every kind of plumbing challenge in this house for nearly 30 years. Absolutely top-notch!!!

Mike Sherlock has been my plumber since May, 1984. He has removed and replaced a water softener and a toilet for me over the years. He has also repaired faucets, tub spouts and has been resourceful enough to locate replacement parts for my faucets that were no longer in production. Mike's knowledge and experience are very evident in the quality of his work. He also uses parts from well known manufacturers. There has never been a return trip.

Mike invests in continuing education and keeps abreast of the latest developments in equipment and procedures. I would highly recommend him for any and all plumbing work.

We highly recommend Mike Sherlock. He has been our plumber for 4 years and we are very confident in his work.

A Plumber is a Homeowner's Best Friend

Mike Sherlock has been our plumber for 10 years, through 2 middle-aged houses. This man has installed (in both houses) hot water heaters, rebuilt faucets, moved gas lines, rodded drain lines, installed new dishwashers. If you get the idea we're a plumbing intensive family: what do you expect with 3 teenage girls??

Mike is clean, neat, prompt, courteous, and FAIR! I have never had a question about his work, and have always recommended him without question. I have referred him to my parents and coworkers. All have been very happy.

WHEN you call Mike, make sure you tell him you saw this 5 star review.

Mike Sherlock has been our plumber for 10 years, through 2 different houses. He was referred to me by our former neighbor in Western Springs. I ALWAYS refer him. He is neat, courteous, knowledgeable, timely, responsive and FAIR! We have trusted Mike with small jobs like changing out faucets to large jobs involving significant waste line work. When you call, tell him you read this review. He'll know that good people will always refer good work.

No S#$* Sherlock

I just got off the phone with Mr. Sherlock of Sherlock Plumbing questioning why he charged my 83 year-old mother $401.50 to install replacement parts for two toilets that were constantly running. After complaining about gas at $3.00 a gallon, his truck maintenence and his $2 million in liability insurance, he informed me that his base call price is $180.00 and that to ""rebuild a toilet"" his cost is $225 (per toilet). He did in fact inform my mother of the price before hand and even allowed her to pay in two payments as she survives on a small monthly federal annuity. I recently did the same job in my own house and the same repalcement parts cost me $7 at Walmart - and the job took me about 20 minutes when I got home. Mr. Sherlock told me that I was lying. If you figure he paid a high price for his parts and take into acount that he had to drive 10 miles round trip; the wear and tear on his truck and his liability insurance, I figure a high cost for his actual expenses at about $33. Since he has to make a living I will give him $120 per hour for his labor and even an additional fee of $30 for incidentals (cell phone calls to his attorney, charities, churches, old-folks homes). That makes his cost + profit at $183.00. Pretty good for an hours work. So where does he get off charging $401.50? Only Mr. Sherolck knows. But to quote him, ""I can't afford to even walk in the door for less than $180"". Mr. Sherlock is either a bad businessman or a lousy accountant. One thing we know for sure, he isn't fair, he isn't equitable and he IS NOT RECOMMENDED.
