I googled the closet plumber to my house to come fix my ever running - leaking shower and got Al's plumbing about 2 blocks from my house in Plano. They said anywhere between 3-5. So I left work to go home and wait. They ran late on a job - it's after 5 - no problem - so I got a snow day at work, cool. When the repair man arrived he was VERY polite, professional, courteous well humored and extremely informative. I did however almost have a heart attack when he told me the job would run me an estimated $898, maybe more once they got on the job. GASP! He understood my pain and suggested a tentative solution until I could afford the ""major over haul"" and it was going to be a mere $440. This solution although less expensive may not fix the problem and once he was into the job he may have to complete it anyway. HOLY MOLY! I thanked him for his time and paid the FREAKING TRIP CHARGE (Ya Live & Learn) and he left. I told a friend about my horrible day and she suggested Speake's Plumbing. 972-271-9144 - Grant. I called and they came out (without me having to be home) and called me once he had diagnosed the problem. $137 (INC TAX) later I have a shower that shuts off and money left in the bank. $868 - $440 - $137 You decide. Be Blessed\r
Pros: Great Price - Very Informative
Cons: Not enough companies like this around!!
