I've used Hermans for years and always had good service. In the last few years though it seems like they have sent out people who don't display a lot of confidence in being able to get the work done. Last time I called them out I had a drain clog in the tub. It wasn't easy for the young man to get the drain unclogged but he did. He also told me that they would need to dig up my slab in the kitchen to fix the clog which he wasn't confident he fixed. Never had a problem with the drain since then. But it concerns me he thought he'd need to do an expensive job like digging up my kitchen slab. Also, last Summer, my AC wasn't cooling well. Two guys came out and checked the compressor and said it had "low pressure" and I'd need to get a new compressor. One of the guys also cleaned out the vents on the AC and told me I needed to do that twice a year. Well, I just couldn't afford a new compressor. So they added Freon or whatever the new stuff is and then left. Since then my AC has worked fine It cools great. My overall concern is the last few times Hermans had been out they have tried to upsale me on more expensive repairs when they actually fixed the issue. Their tech are always polite and professional. Just have a problem with them wanting to do stuff it seems like I don't need.
I'm sorry I am just now seeing the ability to review this company because it is absolutely the best! Randall comes out on every call we placed throu…
I have had issues with my kitchen sink drain off and on for years. A friend of mine recommended I call Pro-drain. Well, Gary, from Pro-Drain shows up. He has to go in under the sink cause there is no clean out and snakes the line. He is unable to get through the clog at one point so he checks the other clean outs. He realizes then that the Kitchen sink clean out is under the sink. He realizes its going to require someone checking the line with a camera and probably putting in a new drainage line. Gary is very nice and was very professional the entire time he was in my house. Very respectful too. I expected to pay a service fee even though he couldn't fix it. He absolutely refused to charge me a fee for coming out since he couldn't fix the problem. I was amazed. I felt I should pay him something but he refused. What a nice guy. I am getting a new drain line put in but if I ever have any other clog issues I'm calling him. I highly recommend anyone else with clogs call him as well. Its all he does and he is good but even he can't fix all the clogs.
I must say I'm very impressed with Rick from Boss Plumbing And Leak Detection and how he runs his company. I had called another company out to locate a leak I had under my slab. They did fine locating the leak but were going to charge me a fortune to fix it. So I called for another estimate from Rick . I liked the price he gave me to do the job so I decided on him. Before he began however he got out his locating equipment and started looking for the leak again. I asked him why he was doing that and he told me he just wanted to make sure that's where the leak was before he began . I asked what that was going to cost and he said it wouldn't cost anything more, he just wanted to make sure the job was done right. I really appreciated the care he put into his work. When he was finished, everything looked perfect! I was very pleased! I'm glad I called for that 2nd opinion and Im glad I found Rick and Boss Plumbing. I would recommend them to anybody!
I sure was glad I found Academy Disc Plumbing and Repair when my plumbing went haywire. It is actually one of my rent houses. Its a very high end house. Completely renovated but my handy man did most of the plumbing installation. That was a mistake. When the renters moved in I had to call Academy Disc Plumbing and Repair to fix all the problems the handy man caused, and there was a lot. One of the main problems was there was only lukewarm water coming out of both the showers and the washer. The washer is at the other side of the house and the showers are up and downstairs way away from each other. We had a brand new water heater so that was not the problem. The other plumbers I called could not find the problem and wasted my money. Academy had the issue diagnosed and repaired in a few hours. I highly recommend them for any who needs a plumber.
Great prices. Great plumbers. Great service. Thanks Academy Disc Plumbing and Repair. When it comes to plumbing you plumbers know their stuff. They are real professionals. The gas was leaking and I called the gas company. I found out later that was a big mistake. The gas company pulled my meter and said I would have to get a plumber to fix the gas leaks,(several) and have it inspected. That meant I would have to have the water heater and central heat inspected also. If I would have called the plumber first it would have saved all the extra expense because I wouldn't have to get the city involved, also would not have to have work done on the water heater and central heat. To my amazement Academy Disc Plumbing and Repair had all the work done that day, inspected the next day and the heat back on. Fantastic!
I can't say enough good things about Robert and his apprentice Brent. I had a buried pipe fitting break that shut off water to the house. They came out and Robert knew exactly where to dig. Within an hour everything was back up and running. I was prepared to shell out hundreds of dollars and was relieved to say the least when I got the quote. They didn't just patch it, they fixed it right. To top it all off, since we were working outside, a group of neighborhood boys crowded around asking questions and getting in the way. Robert and Brent were both very polite, very respectful and worked hard and fast while having to narrate and teach a little boy seminar at the same time. These guys are nothing but professional. You won't be disappointed.
We have been having troubles with our water heater for a long time. I called multiple plumbers to look at it and they told me it needed replaced. It is not that old though and that's why I tried calling more than one plumber. I didn't believe it needed replaced yet. I was referred to Academy Disc Plumbing and Repair from a friend who has used them many times and was very satisfied. It didn't take them long to diagnose the problem and have it repaired. They didn't charge us extra for coming out on Saturday. They are closed on Saturdays but they still answered the phone and took care of our emergency. Thanks Academy Disc Plumbing and Repair for taking care of our plumbing issues and saving us buying a new water heater.
My basement kept flooding and the sewer was backing up when the city main has a problem. Almost every month. I live down town. Close to NW 13th and Lincoln by the hospitals. The city main is old and needs replaced. The other plumbers I called would just keep snaking it and it didn't ever help. So I called Academy Disc Plumbing and Repair. Their plumbers said they needed to bust the concrete and cap the line and I wouldn't have any more problem with sewer coming out of the floor drain. I have used them on repairs to my plumbing numerous times sine then and they always give me a good price. I would recommend them if anyone needs a plumber. Pros!
I can't say enough great things about this company! Michael and the team are very professional and knowledge about all things plumbing. Having a historic home means I've had a few plumbing needs over the years and they have always done great work at a reasonable price. After having had what I was told, by another well known company, was a major sewer line problem a second opinion with Lakeshore found the actual problem and solution without forcing me to pay a fortune. Since then I always rely on this company for all my needs. Have had sewer line cleaned out, inside line unclogged and new water heater installed. Great company!
Called Boss Plumbing And Leak Detection to locate and repair a slab leak for me. I must say that Rick, the owner does a very good job of communicating and taking the worry away seeing as my house was flooded. Rick is a very take charge guy and he did just that. He made what I thought was a huge problem seem very easy to deal with. He was able to locate my leak and fix it all in the same day. His final bill was much lower than I expected which was a nice suprise. Im very impressed with Rick, and how he runs his company. Im definately going to refer him to anyone who needs a good plumber!
