Baker Elman Plumbing

The plumber who came (I can't remember his name, unfortunately) was wonderful - efficient and friendly and got the job done perfectly, for the price I had been quoted ahead of time. It was a pleasure working with this company.

Cabral carpentry & painting
1.0
I hired Cabral Carpentry to replace my bathtub and repair my ceiling. In order to start the job, the owner Donna Cabral charged me a 57% deposit (which exceeds the 1/3 maximum deposit permitted under M.G.L. 142AS 2(a)(6)). Throughout the process Donna made demands for additional payments in further violation of M.G.L. 142A S 2(a)(6). This includes a demand for $500 additional when she falsely claimed to have just learned my tub was a jacuzzi tub and not a garden tub. She made a third demand for $2,500 (the entire balance of the increased quote) before completion of the work. In total I have made payments totaling $4,500 all of which represent a violation of the Regulation of Home Improvement Contractors; and the job is still incomplete. Donna failed to provide a written contract in violation of M.G.L. 142A § 2(a). I later found out Donna also failed to pull a permit which is not in compliance with local applicable building codes. In addition to the violations outlined above, I have been left without a working bathtub or shower for over 6 weeks. Donna made several crucial mistakes throughout the process beyond the violations listed above. She failed to meet deadlines time and time again and pushed what should have been a 4 day job into 4+ weeks (for reasons unrelated to COVID-19). Despite my confirming the dimensions with her in writing several times, she thought a 72 inch bathtub would fit into a 70 inch opening, which is physically impossible. She did not inform me during the booking process any tile would need to be removed and did not budget for a tiler. She had no problem ripping off my tile, but when it came time to replace the tile, she demanded an additional payment of $1,500. Fortunately I did not proceed with the additional service she suggested, because the tub was not ready for tile or even weight bearing as advised by multiple licensed professionals. She did not secure the tub using mortar as she said she would, instead she used a "Custom Installation" which was basically small pieces of cheap wood under one end of the tub. She did not use an electrician when installing the jacuzzi which resulted in a copper that was not ground and also a live wire that was left exposed, both of which could result in serious injury or even death from electrocution. The sill of the tub (where you put all your weight on getting in and out of the tub) did not have support, there was a large gap between the knee wall and the tub so it was essentially just floating there. The base of the tub (which hosts the plumbing / drainage and where you stand directly under the shower head) also did not have any support. There is still a large hole in my wall along with large rips on my ceiling from her crew, despite charging me $500 extra to fix the ceiling. When I made Donna aware of these issues, she told me to take it up with one of her subcontractors, but I asserted that I hired her and would like her to rectify this. At that point she stopped replying to me and I had to hire a lawyer to send a 30 Day Demand letter to get her attention. She finally replied, but did not offer a reasonable solution to make it right. Donna knew I was in a vulnerable position and took advantage of me. She took on a relatively straight forward project that was clearly over her head. She misrepresented herself and her abilities and put me in an awful position. Cabral Carpentry's work is atrocious and their business practices are illegal. I would not recommend Cabral Carpentry & Painting to anyone.

Quite well. Bathroom was left spotless. Plumber was courteous and explained the process. I'm a real estate agent and already referred Rizzo Plumbing out to other agents!

Jason provided a very reasonable quote and worked with us to ensure our new bathroom - did a great job installing the new tub & toilet and coordinating the new flooring. We hired him again to install a new sink and toilet in the upstairs bathroom as well. Good communication and very responsive. I would recommend him to anyone!

R.P. McLaughlin Co Plumbing & Heating
2.0
We’ve used R. P. McLaughlin over years, generally with good results, but this experience has been bad. We have a broken bathtub spout/diverter. A service person came in early February, and given a particular style of our American Standard shower system, recommended ordering a matching part and coming back to install. When asked how long it would take, he said about a week. We needed to get the shower fixed quickly, but agreed. He took a picture of the spout and left. About a month later in early March we still haven’t heard anything, so my wife called the office, and was assured the part would be received by March 12, and installed immediately after that. About 3 weeks later we still didn’t hear anything, so my wife called again and was told the person who orders parts was out that week, so no information was available. Now it’s April, almost 2 months later after “about a week” our shower is still broken, and we have no idea what is going on. Very unprofessional, and we probably need to look for another plumbing company that would actually do what they promise, or at least have the courtesy to call and provide an update if the part is not available or there is a delay. By the way, I am not an expert, but I believe I’ve found the needed part on Amazon after a 5 minute search.

Servant Plumbing of Mt.Pleasant
5.0
We are in the midst of cleaning up our rental house (after the worst-ever renters), and we found a large area of mildew under the vinyl beside the bathtub. Servant Plumbing has been great in the past, professional, prompt, and friendly, so we called them again. Louie runs a top-notch business. Jay Stephens came out and diagnosed the problem. He went under the house and took pictures, so we could see exactly what was happening. We had a leak in the bathtub drain, which had rusted out the bottom of the old cast iron tub and caused sub-floor damage. He gave us a written estimate and set a date to do the work. He predicted it would take two days to complete. Yesterday, Jay showed up on time with everything he needed. He was just great - cannot say enough good things about this young man! He went out of his way to make us happy. He emptied everything out of the bathroom, including the sink and toilet; he explained that breaking up those old tubs can be messy, and he didn't want anything to fly off and break another fixture. I must add that Louie called last night, just to make sure everything was going as expected. So in taking up the vinyl, we got a good look at the sub floor, and it was apparent that the area around the toilet also needed replacing. Jay took excellent care of it. He added a new flange and is also going to return after the vinyl is installed to replace the toilet - with new wax ring (we don't need the toilet now, since the house is unoccupied). Cannot say enough good things about Jay. He is so nice and knowledgeable ... and completely helpful. He really has made a tough situation a little easier. As Louie said, no one could have been better qualified to deal with our sub-floor issues, and he could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Amazing level of service! We plan to always use Servant for our plumbing and will request Jay at every opportunity, and we want to award Jay the Angies Angel. Anyone would be in good hands with Servant Plumbing and especially with Jay.

Mr. Tub
5.0
We had a crack in our bathtub. Errol was the only one out of several providers to realize that our existing tub was a cheap plastic (not fibreglass) unit that couldn't be repaired. He took the time to come out a second time to explain all the options available. We decided to go with a shower tub instead of a bath tub. He and his team showed up on time and went to work immediately. They covered all floors to the bathroom and all open surfaces in the bathroom. Errol stayed for a couple of hours to ensure his crew had everything they need and all our questions were answered. Once the job was finished the crew cleaned up all debris and left us with a clean updated bathtub

The work was accomplished promptly and well. Technician here less than half an hour. The cost of $435. was ridiculous and I won't go back.

They came out promptly to look over the jobs and said they would get back to me. I called a week later and was told I would receive a quote in a couple of days. I never received a quote. I tried calling again and did not receive a call back. If you weren't interested in doing the work then just say so instead of leaving me hanging.
