  • Chris Orazine Contracting
    Chris and his colleague did a fantastic job. Chris came out to explain the process and we hired him on the spot. He also checked on the sewer pipe running into the tank and found it working just fine, which was a big relief for us because we had some problems with one of our bathrooms recently. He is highly professional, courteous, and fun to work with and we recommend him highly

    Septic system and plumbing: Chris is very professional and reliable. Super nice guy and very knowledgeable. Fair and honest and responsive. I highly recommend Chris, and will engage him again for future projects.

  • Matt Mertz Plumbing Trenchless Sewer Repair Expert
    We are so impressed with Matt Mertz plumbing. We have rented our 85 year old house in Brighton heights and our basement has been flooding on and off since July 4, 2012 - (please note that we live on top of a steep hill). Two other plumbers looked at the problem, one completely missed the boat, the other's quote was extreme. Our poor tenants had to deal with a busted water heater, and never knowing whether or not the basement would be dry. After weeks of temporary 'repair', I called Matt Mertz Plumbing from Ottawa Canada, and within 45 minutes, my call was returned and someone had come to the house a few hours later. We needed extensive repair as our tree penetrated the 85 year old pipes and the drain to the main sewer was completely blocked. Matt called me directly to explain the problem and give me a reasonable quote considering the huge amount of work needed to be done. They even moved their schedule around so that they could come a week earlier than initially quoted since it was flooding so regularly. My tenant told me how professional, clean, and efficient the crew were. Matt and his crew were very respectful towards my tenant and was vigilant about keeping the basement as clean as possible, finishing quickly, and keeping inconvenience to a bare minimum. When the job was completed (three days later), they had lain new pipe throughout the entire basement, as well as all the way to the main sewer. Matt guaranteed that the tree cannot cause any more damage and that my new drainage system will last a lifetime. He sent me pictures of the work that was done, as well as provide a DVD to see the inside of the new pipe. Because we are so far away from our property, it is such a relief that I found a such a thorough plumber with such professionalism and skill. We cannot be happier. Matt is a very knowledgeable, clear, honest, and hard-working professional. Even though we have never met face to face I have no doubt that our flooding problems are gone for good

    We called on a Friday night after coming home to find the main water line pouring water into the yard and some water getting into the house (this had happened less than two years ago and the plumber we were using at that time had created more problems, so I wasn't surprised that their repair didn't stand the test of time). Robert responded the next day even though he was out of town. Although I was able to turn off the water to the house with a pair of pliers, Robert strongly cautioned me to get the right tool from a hardware store. I took his very good advice later that day (it was under $10 just as Robert had said it would be), which likely prevented me from hurting myself with the pliers. Robert promised to come out first thing Monday morning, and based on past experience with him, we preferred to wait for him rather than finding someone else to come out before Monday. As expected, he was worth the wait. He arrived Monday morning as promised and stayed on the task until he was done. The break was in a difficult spot, but we have every confidence it's the last repair we'll have to do there. Thanks again Robert

    I called Superior Plumbing because 2 previous plumbers had failed me...the first one unclogged my sewer drain but told me I had roots and tried to sell me yearly root treatment. The problem recurred within a month. A second plumber then tore up my wall to get to a cleanout but failed to unclog my drain and left after bending his rotor rooter. When I called Superior Plumbing Robert came out with his fiberoptic camera and showed me that my sewer line was narrowed due to pipe corrosion and buildup of minerals. It was clear I needed my line replaced and that it was not a root problem and we arranged another visit although he was able to unclog my line enough to function until that time. A few days later he arrived exactly on time with a helper and using a small backhoe he excavated the old cast iron line. Then he replaced it with 4 inch schedule 40 PVC and also constructed a cleanout that can be accessed from outdoors. No more tearing up of walls to clean a drain! Not that I will need it anytime soon. When he was done before he left he had me run all the water in the house including the washing machine on spin and flush all the toilets at once while he checked the pipe through the cleanout. It handled the load easily! He took the old pipe away and left my property in good shape. He showed a lot of respect for my property unlike previous plumbers. It wasn't cheap but well worth the price as I am worry free and won't have to waste money on plumbers that put a bandaid on the problem or tear up my wall and leave

  • Dirty Heath's Bobcat/Excavator
    I've had Heath do work for me before, so I called him when my tenant reported the washing machine drain was backing up at a piece of rental property. He came out and gave me an estimate and then built the field line for me (the previous drain had been broken by tree roots when it was downed in a storm). Afterwards he kept in touch until we were sure the line was working properly to resolve the drain issue. I've been very pleased both times I've used Dirty Heath. He's very professional and always wants to ensure that his work is satisfactory and that your problem is resolved

  • Bob Whitley Decorating Inc
    This was a very involved project that started with excavating part of the basement, foundation work, & structural reinforcement before the project could really begin. Bob Whitley assisted with all phases of this, subcontracting portions of the work as needed. Much of the build-out involved working from detailed engineering drawings that involved very specific construction detail drawings designed to preserve acoustical isolation of different parts of the space. The quality of the carpenters provided was outstanding. Very high quality work performed by professional crews. Reliable & punctual. Clear communication. Everyone with the company made sure that I was satisfied with the work performed

    They were able to come the next day after I called. I scheduled an afternoon appointment. They called to let me know they were about 45 minutes before arriving. They quickly located the tank electronically. Had to take down part of our chain link fence to get the small backhoe in to dig to the tank top. The backhoe had rubber tracks, which was nice to limit the damage to the yard. Pumped and inspected the tank, explained what had been done and what they saw to us. They replaced the tank top, the dirt and put the fence back up. Everything was left as they found it with minimal disruption to the ground considering the work that was done. Nice folks and were fast and good at what they do

  • Griffin Excavating Inc
    He had excellent equipment, it was big, and could do the job in a short amount of time. He was there early every morning, and he was always there before my husband. He got the job done quickly, and he made sure that everything got done right. He had good people working for him.The price was good, because we expected a bigger bill. We will be using them in the future

  • Southern Botanical LLC
    The job went very well. They actually came out to do the work sooner than promised and once the tree removal was finished the sodding and planting started right away.
