Service Specialties was wonderful. The technician was very friendly and knowledgeable, and they came on time. The whole experience was great. I would definitely grade them as an A+.
The gentleman from Service Specialties went right to work and managed to fix my problem. Apparently, there was a block in a pipe; water was backing up, and I had sort of a small flood. I think their customer service was very good. They deserve an A+.
I liked their clarity of explaining the situation. Their staff was knowledgeable, and they executed the repairs in a timely manner. I would give them an A grade for not only their technical staff, but also their reception and scheduling.
I liked Service Specialties' reputation, and the workers were very professional. I didn't have any disagreements with the crew, and the work was completed. I'd give them an A+ rating.
The service people did fine. It is holding up well—they did a fine job. Their customer service was excellent. Everything was good. Service Specialties gets all A grades from me.
I like their workmanship, their professional attitude, and the complete services they provide. I've used them for 10 years—maybe 15 years now. Service Specialties is an A+ company.
They do fine work for us. They always come in a timely fashion, and they do the job they say they are going to do. I think they're on time. I don't know how I heard about them, but we have been using them for quite a long time. They do really good work when they are called upon. They get an A+ from me.
They had to fix this underground pipe that got cracked by a tree. So far, it has been good, and it has been six months since they did the work. It seems to be good work. We haven't had any negative impact from the installation. I'd say Service Specialties is an A because they did very good work.
The plumbers from Service Specialties were highly professional. They even solved one very critical problem. I had a previous plumber who couldn't figure out what was going on, but Service Specialties found the problem in a short amount of time. I was very happy with their knowledge and professionalism—A+.
We were very pleased. They got here on time, and they did the work efficiently. It hasn't started leaking yet, so we're in good shape. I think we've used them once before. They did A+ work.
