Honest Abe replaced three outside faucets. They did so in less than an hour and with solderless crimp connections. It was very well done. All faucets work beautifully and were anchored properly. Honest Abe was clean, straight to the point, showed me the work before and after, and worked efficiently. In the end, they even took care of my outside siding trim that wasn't well suited for the new faucets; the trim was in the way of the faucet, and I told them to let me get it. They came back and flawlessly fixed it. Wow.
They fixed leaky faucets, repaired a gas boiler, and replaced a toilet. They arrived on time, did the work promptly, and did not charge to fix a couple of trivial items.
They installed heating/cooling units for the main floor and the second floor. They also do the maintenance for both units all year long. We have called the company also for plumbing needs and service. Excellent. They have the greatest customer service and workers. They perform their jobs professionally and courteously. Honest workers. We truly have been so pleased with everyone there.
Water heater replacement was performed. The process was smooth—no problems. Services were as expected, and I was kept aware of the progress.
They removed an old disposal and installed a new garbage disposal of my choosing. They were polite and worked well to get the job done in reasonable time.
They determined the cause of very low pressure in the bathroom shower faucet and fixed it. What made it positive was the outcome (the water pressure in that faucet is now the best in the house), the skill of the workers, the professionalism of the workers, and our positive and personable interactions with the team.
They removed an old, defective 50-gallon natural gas hot water heater and replaced it with a 75-gallon natural gas hot water heater. Unfortunately, the igniter on the new unit was defective. The Honest Abe plumber returned and attempted to clean the igniter. After testing the heater to make sure the cleaned igniter was functioning properly, he left. We looked forward to having an abundant supply of hot water, but once again, the heater stopped working. The Honest Abe plumber was summoned again and this time replaced the faulty igniter. The water heater has worked flawlessly since. I consider my experience positive in spite of the difficulties and inconvenience in getting the heater to function as it should. It was clear that Honest Abe would provide whatever was needed to back up their products and workmanship.
They replaced a kitchen faucet. The guys were knowledgeable, professional, and polite, and they cleaned up thoroughly.
I had a shower head unit installed in my bathroom. This was a somewhat unusual job because there was no shower to begin with. The first thing that impressed me about the two young men who arrived to do the job was before entering my house, they put paper booties over their shoes. After that, they gave me two different prices to do the job and explained in great detail the difference between the two. I was not pressured in the least to go with either one. I made my decision, and the work was done at that time. The young men were very professional, polite, and efficient. They cleaned up every bit of dust, dirt, etc. before they left, and within two hours, I had a brand-new shower where there was none before.
I had an emergency when the water tank shutoff valve broke and the water could not be turned off. Even though the employees were about to end their day, they came to help me and replaced the valve. The technicians were incredible in showing me what the problem was and resolving the issues. Thank you, thank you!
