From the initial call taker to the technician that came out, everyone was very nice and easy to work with. We got same day service, literally an hour from the call. The technician Dana was excellent at communicating the problem, how long the repair would take, and how much it would cost. They were very fast, and the finished repair is great. They were very careful not to make a mess, and when they left, everything was spotless. Thanks!

I called Roto-Rooter in the morning and they were able to schedule a service technician to come out that afternoon. I received a call letting me know when to expect the technician, and Joe R. arrived right on time. Joe R. was very courteous and professional. Before he entered our home he put shoe booties on which I appreciated. He assessed our problem, gave us a written quote, and immediately went to work to resolve our sewer line problem. He had all the necessary equipment and tools on his truck to complete the job. He finished the job within a short period of time and cleaned his work area. He explained everything to us and we were very satisfied with the job he did for us. We would highly recommend Roto-Rooter (Joe R.).

The technician was knowledgable and very friendly. He took his time and explained the process of snaking a drain.

The technicians came to the house almost immediately after I contacted dispatch and requested service. They quickly assessed the problem and corrected it. Mike gave me a run-down of what the problem was and what I needed to do to prevent future problems. I was very pleased with their professionalism.

The service was good and the plumbers were polite, but I feel I was needlessly charged for a faucet. I had a leak in the bathroom behind the vanity and no one used the knobs so how could have that have been the problem. So far I have not had any leaking. To "compensate" for the additional charge for the faucet another plumber came and replaced the screws on the toilet.

I used to consider Rotorooter a reputable company - NOT any more. The "technician" made a half a$$ attempt at snaking my drain - then told me they could "JET" it for $900. Another drain cleaning service actually came in and at a lesser distance than RR hacks said they snaked CLEARED the blockage; imagine that. Go for the smaller company - not the nationwide thieves.......

We had Mitchell come out to fix our bathtub he went above and beyond climbing under our house to find out what was going on. I would definitely recommend Roto-Rooter and would not hesitate to call again if I have future plumbing issues

Roto-Rooter Plumbers

Had problems with a couple of drains yesterday.
It was 4 pm and the first place that I called for a plumber someone recommended to me wanted to charge premium prices already and wanted over $200 just to show up.
Roto-Rooter did not and was here within an hour.The service tech was very courteous,got the job done and cleaned all the areas he worked excellent. The techs name was Darrell
and this was in the Detroit area.
I'll call them again in the future.
