Fernando was recommended to me by the Glen Ellyn Newcomers Group so I knew off the bat he was going to live up to my high standards. I met with several plumbers to get quotes as this was a big project and I had so many problems just getting the other plumbers to return my phone calls or show up on time for the estimate?! Fernando with Essential Plumbing was phenomenal! He met me the day after I called to give me a quote. He was on time, professional, courteous and his pricing was great so he was hired! He did a lot of work for us for a kitchen/laundry remodel and he and his entire staff could not have been better. Of course, we passed inspection with flying colors and I could not have been happier with the work they did and how quickly they were able to accommodate me. (He also bent over backwards and helped me out a different time to install a gas line for a new grill we ordered -- he saved the day, right before a big bbq!). If you are looking for a quality/expert plumber that you can rely on, Fernando is your guy!
