A selection of 451 homeowner reviews:
“John Nugent & Sons was really good. They were fast and efficient, and it was just a really good experience all across the board. The plumber was quick and professional, and he showed us how to fix it ourselves in the future. They deserve an A+. We would use them again, and we'd recommend them.”
“John Nugent & Sons came out immediately and did an awesome job. The repairman was fantastic, as was the work.”
“Prompt, clean diagnosis and issue resolution are the qualities we look for, and John Nugent & Sons provided that. I would recommend them.”
“They were prompt with their service, and they were friendly. I'd give them an A.”
“They did plumbing work for me, and everything was good.”
“John Nugent & Sons seemed to know what they were doing. They fixed a problem we had been having off and on for a few years, but they haven't really come up with a solution. It turns out we have really high water pressure into our house, but we were having issues with pipes rattling. Then we also had been having issues with getting lots of leaks. It turns out the water pressure to our house was double what it was supposed to be. My father-in-law recommended them. I would give them an A.”
“They had knowledge of a situation I had with a tankless hot water heater. I didn't know a lot about it, and I came to discover that a lot of people didn't service it. They were one of the few companies that serviced it and had somebody on staff who actually knew what they were talking about, so that was a big plus. It didn't take them long at all to do the job. He came here, gave me the estimate, and came back and got the job done within a couple of hours. I originally found them in the Best Pick Reports booklet. They get an A+.”
“They did a hot water heater replacement. I've been using them for years, and I always know what I'm going to get in terms of quality work. The company was recommended to me by my mother. They're A+.”
“John Nugent & Sons replaced my water heater for me. They were professional and prompt. So far, I haven't had any issues. I may have to call them back to have them take a look at something, but other than that, it was a pretty straightforward installation. Last time, I had them check my bathtub faucet. I chose them because I'd had them come before.”
“They were timely, and they did a good job. I think we've used them a few times—I know they came out to take a look at clogged drains and things like that. They're an A-grade company.”
