Ripped me off

I had low water pressure in my basement shower so I called Mr. Rooter for help. Big mistake! Peter Borsuk charged me $200 to figure out what part was needed to fix the pressure issue. Then he wanted to charge me another $600 to actually fix it. Called another plumber and had it fixed for $300. Basically, he charged me $200 for nothing. Will never call Mr. Rooter for help again.

Kitchen Faucet Repair

Bruce was very accommodating and did his best in order to help me fix my kitchen sink. At first he was only required to snake the drain pipes but he discovered corroded pipes and gave me my options. Once i had decided to chose to replace my pipes he drove all the way to the dealer and came back and finished the job in an hour. On top of that he was required to travel in and out of my apartment building due to a series of unfortunate events when it was -13. So good!

Great Service from Bruce at Mr Rooter

I had two issues to be resolved: a completely blocked bathroom sink, and rebuilding of toilet flushing mechanism in a second bathroom. Bruce from Mr. Rooter was excellent. He got right to work, he explained everything he was going to do, the pricing associated, and worked efficiently. He then went through all the repairs, and gave me some tips to prevent in the future, and also on using the Mr Rooter natural drain product (which I also purchased). Highly recommended. Bruce was great.

leak in bath tub plumbing , replace plumbing , new shower head and faucet

We were in need of a plumber on Dec 5 with a leak in the plumbing for the bathtub faucet so I made a call to Mr. Rooter and they sent out a service plumber to assess our problem. The person they sent was Bruce who gave us a good explanation as to what would be needed to resolve our problem and what the cost would be. Bruce was very professional, friendly and very meticulous preforming the job.
Thanks again Bruce.

Problem Solved

During a shower restoration, a tile and grout worker poured grout and caulking into our master bathroom toilet, resulting in a solidly plugged toilet. After attempting to plunge the toilet, unsuccessfully, I knew that the matter required professional escalation. I called Mr. Rooter and Bruce was dispatched to our home. Bruce immediately assessed the matter and ascertained the toilet was plugged solid with hardened grout! After applying a snake, the hardened caulking/grout was successfully dislodged and the toiled returned to proper functionality.

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.

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.

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!
