My hot water heater died and we called Catons Plumbing at 801 Geipe Rd Catonsville MD. They came within a couple of hours and our service tech, Nick, was very polite and professional. Although it took several hours longer than anticipated to receive the new water heater, the job was a success and we had hot water later that evening! more

One of the best experiences I've ever had with a plumbing company, or ANY home repair service!! Friendly and professional from the person who answered the phone, to the person who came to the house. I live in Columbia, MD and called the Catonsville office in the morning, and the guy arrived before lunch!! He tried to fix the problem first in what would have been a less expensive fix at HIS suggestion. I would definitely use them again, and recommend others do too!! more

Hello, I had to get my tub/shower fixture repaired. The service guy name is Nick. Nick was so patient with me asking questions. He explained everything to me in detail. He was very courteous and polite. I ask him if Catons Plumbing give senior discount and they do. He applied the discount to my bill. I?m very pleased with the work that was performed. Hopefully I will not need plumbing work again, but if I do I will be calling Catons Plumbing. I will be recommending Catons Plumbing to family and friends.\r \r Bronzella more

I had a gas leak and was serviced by Catons Plumbing in short order. Alphonso did the job well, was personable, and the area was kept clean. The one issue I have, and I think it is serious, is the billing structure and processes used. \r \r Catons is trying a digital device to track and bill jobs, but someone decided they ALSO needed the paper copy, so I am on the clock while the technician is doing two forms of documentation. Here's the breakdown of my visit:\r 11:14 I notice the van pull up\r 11:21 Alphonso meets me on the porch and I show him where the problem is\r 11:24 He writes up a service order and has me sign and initial, verbally making note of the rate of $91/half hour. I make note of the time and start a stopwatch on my phone ""just in case"". \r 12:11 job complete. I look things over, assist Alphonso with carrying things out.\r 12:18 Alphonso has tools stowed and asks for my CC for payment. Since I handed him a form of payment I believe the clock has stopped and the bill will be less than $200. He then proceeds to write up the service order manually. And THEN has to poke around with a digital device (phone?) to duplicate what he just entered manually.\r 12:24 I stop my stopwatch at 59 minutes from when I signed the service order while he is doing his required duplicate documentation. this takes another 10 minutes for some reason.\r 12:35 he tells me my total is $281.\r \r Even though the time from when i signed the paper to when I handed him my payment method was under an hour I was charged for more. I was told that after 8 minutes into the next 30 minute segment you are billed for the whole 30 minutes. It wasn't Alphonso's fault-- someone in the front office of Catons has either poorly implemented a digital solution, or has a phobia about it and must cling to the paper copies, my time was wasted and Alphonso's expertise and productivity was wasted, but I guess its all good because the bean counters who need to cling to their paper copies AND make the techs use a second system for billing see the proper number at the bottom of the spreadsheet regardless of what productivity was actually accomplished.\r \r I would like to see Catons have a policy where billed paper pushing time is capped--this is built into the $3/minute rate already. The clock starts when the signature goes on the paper--not when the van rolls up to my house and then 7 minutes (that's $21) is spent doing who knows what, but getting paid-- and ends when the tech has his or her gear off the site. If I'm at 1:07 on the clock I don't want the tech to have ANY incentive to write slow to take it to 1:09 and get $60 out of me. The technology is here to bill me for 39 minutes. Why should I have to pay for 60? \r \r Nothing was mentioned up front verbally or written on the paperwork about the ""partial half hour"" rule being cut off at 8 minutes. So I got about 54 minutes of well done professional service work and then paid an extra $91 for clerical tasks which took ~25 minutes. That is $3.64/minute to write up a freaking bill! Oh yeah...TWICE! Great service on the gas line but really PISSED OFF about this secretarial rate that could pay for a stenographer to show up and take dictation.\r \r Just yank off the freaking band aid. If you are going to institute a digital solution to replace handwritten documents and ""improve efficiency"" then you need to do one or the other or, not both and still tout efficiency. The customer SHOULD NOT have to pay for such ridiculous administrative decisions. How about DON'T stick it to the customer, let the spreadsheets show any dip in revenue and then the bean counters can investigate why. ""Oh our workers in the field are having to spend 150% more unbilled time in the front and back end of a service call and it looks like its because they have to do everything twice."" Don't make the customers pay for your administrative experiments. \r \r JD in Baltimore more

I used Catons to complete a project that I started, but did not have the experience to finish. After replacing kitchen cabinets with new lowers and uppers and replaced a dishwasher, I had difficulty putting all the plumbing pieces back together again. After many trips to one the ""big box"" stores, I decided to call Catons. I called on a Sunday, they provided an estimate on Monday and completed the projected within a couple of hours on Tuesday. The plumber was prompt, efficient, and thorough. I would definitely use Catons Plumbing again.\r \r Baltimore, MD more

I needed a plumber to fix my clogged kitchen drain and I was on a tight schedule. I called Caton's plumbing in the morning and requested help for that day. They have an office location not far from my town of Ellicott City, MD. Not only would they come that day, they asked me what was a convenient time! Since I was only available in the afternoon, I gave them an ""after 12:30"" timeframe. The lady was pleased to accommodate that and told me that they would call when they were on the way. They did just that! I got a call from Bruce, the licensed plumber, who confirmed my address and told me he was on the way. Bruce showed up and was very pleasant. He looked over my kitchen sink and the drain arrangement and told me exactly what he was going to have to do. He gave me the price on the agreed upon work and he began. Bruce was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. His work was wonderful and he didn't sign off on the job until he was certain that all systems were working properly. I would use Caton's again in a heartbeat. Great customer service. more

I thought I had made it through this frigid winter without any freezing problems, but on Saturday, March 7 that all changed. I heard a terrible rumbling and clanging of pipes and then the sound of water rushing. At first, I thought it was at my neighbor's house, but quickly realized something was terribly wrong in my house! I turned off some of the water feeds and the sound stopped. \r \r I called several plumbing companies who said they couldn't help me until Monday afternoon or evening or they did not answer at all. Then I called Catons Plumbing and spoke with Earl. He reassured me that someone could help me as soon as I gave the word and that they were available 24/7. I had determined that the problem might involve the outside faucet and it was getting dark. Earl told me that someone would be at my house in Towson on Sunday morning between 8 and 12. \r \r Nick arrived at 10:05 Sunday morning and couldn't have been nicer. He was polite, informative and professional. He did a thorough job with the repair and then walked me through what had caused the problem and what he had done to correct it. \r \r I have to say I was extremely impressed with Catons Plumbing! I will definitely call them the next time I need assistance and will heartily endorse them to my friends.\r \r Thank you, Catons!\r \r Susan Bryant more

I called Catons for a clogged toilet. They were very nice on the phone and were able to send someone right out. I was told it was a four hour window and the plumber was here within the hour. I got a phone call letting me know when he was on his way.Tim was very personable and professional. I wa given a quote for the services and my toilet was in working order writhing 10-15 minutes. I would use them again and would recommend them to friends.\r \r Halethorpe MD more

Yesterday I had a minor flood in my house when my toilet leaked at the base and the water soaked through the ceiling into the kitchen. \r \r I first called a BGE because I have a ""smart service"" contract for my furnace and water heater, but they couldn't commit that they would be able to fix the problem since apparently their plumbers don't do any work that might involve having to go through walls and, at this point, I didn't k now whether my problem was the toilet or a leak somewhere in the pipes. Another plumber recommended by a friend, was not able to provide someone the same day. I then called Catons because I had seen their trucks in the neighborhood.\r Catons was able to have a plumber out there in 2 hours. The plumber was knowledgeable and informed me about the nature of the problem as well as options and what it would cost. They also had their ""restoration"" person come by to examine the situation and advise me on whether the area above the ceiling could air dry or would need more intensive drying. \r \r While not an inexpensive fix, they were professional and seemed to do a good job. I would definitely call them again if I need plumbing services. more
