Excellent service. Tyler was my plumber. He was early, polite, friendly, and thoughtful. He asked how I wanted things done with every change that was going to happen as a result of the new faucet. He showed me pictures from under the sink (to make sure I understood what he was doing.) When I initially called this company, the person who answered the phone was friendly and polite. I would definitel...

Tyler showed up before his appointment time and was very nice and professional. We had flooding in our basement and needed our sump pumps assessed to determine what went wrong. We received very trustworthy advice and decided to go for the most upgrade we could in order to try to ensure this doesn’t happen again. Tyler will be installing new commercial sump pumps next week.

Very courteous, prompt, and professional service. Brad from H.T. Strenger figured out the source of the leak, fixed it quickly, and explained the parts we could order to replace an old faucet and shower assembly and drain on our vintage tub that have been giving us problems for years. This was the second time we hired H.T. Strenger to fix plumbing issues in our 1920s house, and we have been very p...

Company was very responsive with scheduling worker to come to my house within two days. Brad did a very good job in moving the pipes in an efficient time, and cleaned up nicely. Company is solid because they charge by the hour which is $164 plus a small service fee, and parts. Many plumbing companies charge an outrageous flat fee and where plumber is compensated with excess commissions! HT Strenge...

Water under kitchen sink appeared while I was House sitting for my son. Being from St. Louis, I didn’t know a soul in Libertyville. I vetted HT through Angie’s list. The woman who answered was so empathetic of my situation. She told me exactly what the charges would be and their policy over the phone. She then arranged a two hour window for the service to be done. Plumber showed up two hours befor...

Always a great experience with H.T. Strenger. Brad was respectful and courteous, and he performed all the work I requested quickly and professionally. He explained his findings and made specific recommendations for future maintenance. Even though our back-up sump battery is five years old, because it tested well he didn't recommend replacement at this time. I appreciate the fact that he put our fi...

Jim was prompt and friendly. He was able to solve the problem in a little under an hour. First he used a 2" auger to bore a hole through the roots in the sewer line and pull some of them back out. This got the water/sewage flowing again. Then he used a larger auger to open up the opening and push the rest of the roots out into the main city sewer line. He also gave me some advice on how to control...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We have had a slow draining sewer for a few weeks (and off and on for a few years). I was able to pull out a root ball by myself, but it didn't solve the problem. In fact a few days later it fully clogged up, and my power auger snapped (I had lent it out to a friend and it came back with kinks in it). Time for professional help.
