“I was very pleased. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable. I was in need of fast professional help, and they came through. If I need any plumbing work, they will get the first call.”

“James A. Wheat & Sons does good work, and they are punctual and neat. They handled the plumbing on a master bath remodel. I have nothing but positive regard for their technicians.”
“Very professional, made sure there were no leaks to enhance the A/C efficiency was optimal.”
“At first there was confusion on how to proceed but I contacted the company who sent out a senior plumber who completely changed the game plan and it worked out fine.”
“The actual service work was done well; only one issue required a return trip, but it was taken care of. The biggest issue was with the front office; from not receiving callbacks when told I would, to trying to charge me more for something that was already included in the original quote. Once the manager got involved, all front office issues were quickly resolved, and I received a nice email from him regarding the disposition of my situation.”
“The repairman evaluated a water heater failure. He was able to isolate it to an electrical part and replace it. He partially drained the water heater. He came to the house when he said that he would. He repaired it without the cost of replacing the entire water heater.”
“Wheat provides all our plumbing and HVAC needs. They were at my mom's house within the last three to four months checking out a leaky air conditioner. Each contact has been with a very professional and friendly individual.”
“He fixed the garbage disposal that was jammed and not turning on. It was positive, quick, polite, and resolution oriented. And he gave me two options for resolving the issue. ”
