Leaking shower

We have used Mr. Rooter Woodbridge many times as our house is somewhat cursed with plumbing issues. Today's visit was for a leak below our shower. Kelly arrived promptly, immediately knew what the problem was and saved us time, stress and unnecessary costs. He was professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful ( he even called after he left to hive me info about the sealing around the faucet). Kelly is amazing and deserves major kudos - he is a true plumbing pro! Thank you again for saving the day!

Be Careful

Came with $300 estimate, that was right estimate and it is right estimate. Charged $885 for nothing and was eyeing at $2,000 to finish job which is actually $300.
He sold membership for three years. Then he cut the wall and quoted $90.
Then he doubled $90 and also $670 for cutting drywall.
Cutting drywall was a small job but was about to bill almost $1,000. All the work he did was just billing and doing nothing. At the end he left the job uncompleted.
We got no receipt for the payment which he charged from my VISA card.

Basement Laundry Tub drainage

Inspect outside catch basin pipe and house drain to the street.

Using a special camera Christopher carried out an evaluation on our exterior catch basin pipe and main drain pipe inside our newly purchased home. He was pleasant and knowledgeable providing me with great insight on how to better protect our investment.

Small plumbing projects

We have used Mr. Rooter in the past and were very satisfied with their work. This time, we needed to have a toilet repaired and two kitchen faucets replaced.
We were told that there would be a phone call about 1 hour before the tech's arrival. Chris arrived right on time. He was very friendly and professional. He was very careful to protect our floors with drop cloths. Chris spent some time replacing the parts in one of our toilets so it would function better. He also replaced two kitchen faucets that were leaking and in need of replacement. The repairs took considerable time but were completed exactly as we wished. Chris was very personable and went to some trouble to acquire the needed parts to fix our toilet. When he left, there was no sign that he had been there - i. e. the areas were spotless. We would have no hesitation in asking for his assistance again. It was a pleasure to chat with someone so knowledgeable who wasn't bothered by questions that we asked. Highly recommended.

Main Shutoff Valve Replacement

My main shutoff valve was leaking around the packing nut on a Sunday morning. In order to repair or replace the valve the water has to be turned off at the curb by the city. They charge the homeowner to turn it off and then again to turn it back on. This was a job that I wanted to do right the first time.

I didn't have a lot of time to shop around as I wanted to get the leak fixed asap. I quickly browsed through google's and homestar's review and Mr Rooter came up with great reviews.

I called the number on their website and reached their call center who was very polite and professional. They also brought to my attention that if I wanted a plumber to come out on the weekend there would be a trip charge since it's Sunday. I appreciate being made aware of this before having them take on the job. However, this contradicts with what they advertise on their website, they have in big bold letters "Never an Overtime Charge Weekends, Evenings, Holidays—Always the Same Price. " They may not call it an overtime charge, but I was definitely charged more to have a plumber out on the weekend.

In fine print they mentioned, "*Not offered at all locations. Reach out to your local Mr. Rooter Plumbing to find out more." It would be less misleading if they mention what location do participate.

Every company advertises they're #1 in the industry. No company is ever going to say say "We may not be the best but we can offer you a good price" or "We pride ourselves in being the best so you will have to pay more for our services". So when I hire someone, my decision is based a lot on reviews. Since this is something I want to get right the first time, I decided to proceed with Mr Rooter based on their reviews.

The plumber arrived quickly and he was very polite and professional. He was quite knowledgeable. I would give him 10/10. Before doing the repair, he showed me a break down of the cost. I was charged with the $69 trip that they pointed out. I was also charged with a $15 fuel surcharge, which I don't really understand. For the parts and labour I was charged $448. I don't see the part costing more than $30 at Home Depot. The plumber mentioned that this was the industry standard for labour. It seems really high to me. I was in a position where I wanted it be done asap and correct. I didn't have much time to shop around. I had a feeling Mr Rooter would do a good job. But if I had more time, I would have turned down their services and continued shopping after the estimate.

I also noticed they have a $20 discount on their website. It was my fault I forgot to mention this when the plumber was on site.

The reason I give Mr Rooter 5/10 is because I probably wouldn't recommend them to someone as they are expensive to homeowners like myself. I would recommend them if money wasn't a concern. The saying "you get what you pay for" is true. But I do believe that you can get the "best bang for the buck" if you do your homework. This definitely would be the case if I had more time.

Blocked rainwater drains

We had several blocked drains from downspouts to the front yard, which did not let rainwater drain quickly away from the foundation. Chris and his crew were extremely professional and cleared all drains with a power washer and camera. Some even required some excavation to find the exit point into the front yard. The crew made sure the job was done beyond the job description on the quotation. We are very satisfied with Chris and recommend him.

Huge Job - Impressive Results

We suffered a collapsed main and external drain. Mr. Rooter staff were amazing - prompt, courteous, extremely hard working, clean and gave us 'top shelf' work. Thank you to Chris (plumber), Travis (project manager) and the countless others (we have 4 OUTSTANDING diggers doing the worst of the worst work -through yucky, smelly conditions - working at record speed! Their work ethic amazes me to this day. I would highly recommend Mr. Rooter.

Kitchen back up and leaking pipes

Prompt response to drain back up and leaking kitchen pipes. Andrew was amazing. He quickly assessed the situation, and advised me to contact Property Manager (which I had done). The drains were leaking in several places, so he changed them as per code. He installed a new faucet. I will get him to return and get him to install one I prefer for different features.
Andrew as courteous, very knowledgeable, and I felt I could trust his opinion.

Replaced a toilet

Plumber initially suggested he would replace a couple parts to our old toilet, then went ahead and replaced the entire toilet. When I received the invoice, I asked for more details regarding the parts & labor (one hour) involved with the installation of the new toilet and they refused. Cost of this toilet is ~$300-400, so the remaining $800 was not justified. The Service Manager was not willing to provide more details to the invoice, so my rights as a consumer were clearly not respected.

Worthwhile sharing this review on other social media platforms so other consumers are aware of this poor service.

We would like to take this opportunity to describe what can be expected in the event that someone requires any type of plumbing assistance and decides to contact Mr Rooter Plumbing.
When we receive a request for service, our customer service team will schedule an appointment to have a plumber perform an onsite assessment and then provide an estimate for any work that needs to be done. Our assessments are done at no cost and our estimates come with no obligation as long as the appointment is scheduled during normal business hours.
We appreciate all reviews and consider any type of feedback from our customers to be helpful, however we would like to provide some comments with regards to this particular review.
The person that left this review recently contacted us to assess a toilet in their home that our plumber found a variety of issues with. The homeowners were presented an exact quote to supply and install a new toilet. Once the homeowners approved the quote, our plumber proceeded to replace the toilet.
Soon after the job was completed, the homeowner contacted one of our managers to question the amount charged for the recent service call and was now looking for a discount. We discussed the charge with the customer but unfortunately were unable to provide him with the discount he was looking for.
