The quality of the work was good but the overall experience wasn't. I had to tell them what types of water heaters Rheem makes. Then they still put the wrong one on the estimate. Then they scheduled the installation without scheduling the chimney flue lining. Then they had to come back our to put in a valve they forgot. Then about six months later they call and tell me I need to have a WSSC inspection done. When I told the guy I already had an inspection and its Rockville City that does this because we are on Rockville water he had a hard time figuring it out. They insisted that an inspection was necessary so I gave up and they scheduled it and no one came. Which is good because i have a Rockville inspection sticker on it. In short the front office is a mess but the plumbers are decent.

I knew what needed to be fixed in the toilet tank and gave that information to the person who took my call to schedule a service visit and she gave me a quote for this one person job. Two people showed up and while they quickly fixed the problem, the cost was more than double what I had been given as an estimate. I needed the problem fixed, so I really didn't have any choice but to pay the amount.
