A few reviews for this pro...


I cannot say enough great things about Tim. I called them on Friday afternoon and they came out to give me a quote on a Monday afternoon. Tim had enough time in his schedule and his bid was significantly better than two other bids I got, so he did the work the same day. Very happy with how long it took, the cost, and how careful Tim was in my home. I will definitely call Jake the Plumber again!

Description of Work
Replace two outside frost-proof faucets (required cutting into ceiling) and remove garbage disposal

Category plumbing



Tim kept me informed as work was being done. This was a fix that another plumber had previously done, incorrectly.

Description of Work
outside faucet leaking. replaced and added shut off valve

Category plumbing



Everything was great from start to finish. Called at 11:30 a.m. and was promised service between 1:30 and 2:30. Received a call back within the hour to let me know it would be 2. Stu arrived promptly. He explained how the cost for the visit worked and got my consent before proceeding. He advised against spending time/money on the kitchen faucet. The problem with the toilet was small, so I ended up paying for a full hour that was only 15 minutes, but that's pretty standard in my experience. Stu was personable and gave me some great plumbing tips as he worked. Will definitely use Jake's again.

Description of Work
Our toilet wouldn't stop running, and we were having to turn the water on and off to use it. Also wanted a consultation about a small issue with our kitchen faucet.

Category water heater repair



Our hot water heater was 14 years old and on the fritz. I did some online research and picked out a few high input heaters that I liked. I then called Jake and hadn't used them before. They were quick to respond and give reasonable estimates on the heaters that I had researched. They were more responsive, helpful and cheaper than a couple other plumbing estimates that I received. We decided to go with them and set up a time for the replacement. The company had to redo some of the old plumbing to fit code, but did a great job and cleaned everything up nicely when they were done. Overall, a very good experience and I would absolutely use them again.
