Reviews for St Paul Shower Valve Repair

Zell Plumbing & Heating
5.0
Once I received the warranty replacement valve from Delta, I called to see if Zell (based on Angies's ratings/reports) would be interested in installing a valve they had not supplied. Amanda said sure and set me up with an appointment for Les (owner) to come out and take care of it. Les called me back that same day, and after I explained the situation, we arranged a service call a day later. Les arrived right on time, and did a wonderful job (even with me watching!). His years as a master plumber showed as he balanced torch, pliers, solder, and cooling rags to keep the copper stubs going into pex tubing from overheating. It was nice to watch a master at work, and all the time not missing a beat while we chatted about and solved most of the world's problems. It was a great experience; or at least 10x better than you'd think a plumbing experience would be.

Norblum Plumbing fixed our shower valve (replaced the cartridge). They were on time, professional, competitive in price, and in touch with us and our tenants proactively.

The plumber gave me the option of cutting out the wall to save me a little of his time and my money, which I appreciated. He was able to take of the job for a reasonable price.

In early evening, we encountered a shower valve that would not close and had to shut off our house main water supply. Rob Joyce arrived asap and replaced the valve in no time at all. The cost was exceptionally moderate, even more so, considering the hour and the inconvenience. I'm aware of other work he's done and the experience and results are similar to ours. He is very reliable, easy going and professional and we would call him in a second for any other work.

Weld & Sons Plumbing
5.0
This all started with a dripping shower head. Needed to replace a couple springs and seats. However the large brass nut was stuck due because it was 13 years old. My wrenching on the nut bent the valve a bit. After replacing the springs and seats and reassembly, the valve now leaked (and was still somewhat bent / twisted). Called Weld and Sons based on Angie's List reviews. They were very courteous and professional. Sent out Kevin the following morning. He showed up EXACTLY on time. He made sound recommendations, had all the parts and fixed it in a little over an hour. We ended up having to replace the entire valve because there was danger of future leaking inside the wall. The end price was well worth it for a professional job and piece of mind.

We were attempting to replace 30 year old shower valve gaskets and the valve broke off of the base due to water deposits. This happened on a Saturday. Other plumbers in the area were unavailable, including the one I normally use. This company came out in the early evening. The technician explained the cost, I said that seems high @ $2,400 just to replace a valve. He said he had to re-plumb the new one. Depending on what guess you pick for Angie's List service (no shower valve replacement), the absolute highest price is $1,700 to replumb a house. While the work was done very well, this company gouges customers - see other reviews. The Service Manager Doug is always "in a meeting" and never returns calls (tried 4 times). This is an unethical company that preys on desperate situations, in my experience. I will never use again.

Apple Valley Plumbing Company
4.0
To start, my wife said he was courteous and when I called he was courteous to me as well. However, I thought they were very expensive to perform a shower valve and shower head replacement. Total charge was $297 and parts were only $55. My wife recalls him getting to our home around 10am and was gone before 11am. That means labor, including a trip charge, was $242. Their door to my door is 8 minutes. I feel the charge was too high based on a trip charge of 20 minutes round trip and maybe 1 hour of labor. I asked for an explanation and he told me shower valves can be tricky and they never know what they are getting into so they may take longer. He said he charged me for 2 hours. Based on this explanation I was charged for a worse case scenario. If that is the case and it ends up not being as bad or take as long they could have backed out some of the labor charges. I am disappointed in the labor charge and feel it was too high. I was charged $242 for about 1 hour and 20 minutes worth of work. He did provide an estimate before the work was performed. Unfortunately I was not at home and my wife accepted the quote. She doesn't know anything about plumbing so she just accepted it being she could not get hold of me. I would have told him not to perform the work based on that rate. So I take part blame for accepting the quote. Regardless, they were too expensive.

Recent Review: Al called us well ahead of our appointment and told us he might be a little late because of the snowstorm, which is much better than those other technicians or contractors who often call you hours after your scheduled time...only to tell you the obvious...that they are running late... Everything went extremely well, considering the snowstorm...and that I incorrectly told them that I only needed a shower head replaced (rather than the entire set-up). Once we realized my mistake, Al adjusted his schedule accordingly, and was able to install a new shower valve and head without any delay. He performed quality work, and the shower set-up works and looks great. Would definitely use this company again.
