My phone call was returned immediately even though it was after hours on a Friday. I was able to turn my water off but he knew I was anxious and came to fix it the following Monday. He was very nice and professional. He also checked some other items for me which took awhile including inspecting my upstairs neighbor's area to check for a possible cause for a different link but yet, didn't charge me...

They were quick to respond to my message and scheduled the repair within a few days, understanding that we could not afford to have our water heater fail before the weekend. It turned out our old water heater was still under warranty, so they were able to install the new one mostly for the cost of labor/disposal. After Mike installed the water heater, he realized he had not checked to see if the b...

Great. Lynda from the office was very polite and even offered some quick troubleshooting tips. When Mike Allen came he was very professional and friendly. Listened to my description of the problem and then got to diagnosing the cause. In the end it was a simple fix. He didn't try to make it bigger than it was. Definitely will call again for future plumbing needs.

After the 2017/2018 cold snap, seemingly half of Boston was without heat and the plumbers/heating folks were completely overwhelmed. We called a dozen people -- most of them wouldn't come at all. The ones who *did* come were either clueless or were hucksters who wanted to sell us a completely new system. (To be clear, this is a 13 year old boiler with an expected lifespan of 30 years.) Allen made ...

Interactions with owner, customer service (a very responsive person), and technician who did the installation were more than satisfactory. It was a pleasure.

Can't say enough good things about Allen Plumbing. Working with Lori to coordinate schedule and work is a pleasure; they coordinate directly with tenants to take care of everything behind the scenes. Frequent updates, timely communication via email (my preference), take credit cards. I wish every vendor I dealt with was so on-the-ball.

Michael patiently explored all the options and pros/cons of each option to solve our problem of not enough hot water for a growing family. After we settled on a solution, Michael ordered the parts, scheduled a day, turned up on time and was done within the day with almost no disruption and leaving the place cleaned up. Professional in every respect.
