Afford-A-Rooter This company engages in unethical business practices. I am not the type to leave reviews like this, but this is my only recourse for business practices like they engage in. This company threatened to put a lien on my home due to a contractor they had business with wouldn't pay them. I paid the contractor, but since the contractor refused to pay them they decided to threaten me. They were fully aware that I paid their business partner, but thought threatening me would then apply pressure on the contractor. I had proof of payment and instead of going directly after their contractor, they decided to threaten me. I know that they would not have legal standing, but the unethical business practice has got to stop. Please be aware of any involvement with this company. Keep all receipts and contact notes if you choose to do business. The company came after me months after the work was completed and paid for.
Response by Afford-A-Rooter, Inc.: We would like to set the record straight with some facts. Please be aware that "Metro Sewer Service" is NOT our business partner. He used us as a subcontractor for work that we performed at HIS client's home. There are plumbing companies in Colorado that either do not have their own excavation crews, or sub out some of their overflow work to other plumbing companies - This is very common practice in our industry. When we are subcontracted to perform work for another entity, and we do not get paid from them - unfortunately, our only legal remedy is to place a lien on the property. We go to great lengths to collect our money before we seek that legal action. In this instance, the client was able to get Metro Sewer Service to pay this invoice. Our company was in contact with this client after he received the intent to lien letter. After the invoice had been paid - We sent them a paid receipt along with a letter that we were no longer seeking legal action. We also called the client and thanked him for convincing Metro Sewer Service to pay their invoice for this particular property. We do not like to send out intent to lien notices, yet that is our legal right!!

When I first contacted them by telephone, a lady named Dee answered the phone. From the beginning to the end these folks are kind, patient, knowledgeable and very accommodating in planning my service needs. They arrived punctually and Diego was ever considerate of my personal property as to protect it from damage. Although I inadvertently ended up with a couple of SMALL spots on my beige carpet, Diego went right to work to clean them up!! I feel these folks from the top to the bottom are the kind of people most us want to deal with when we need assistance!!!! Their pricing was right in line with other companies in their field. They are just plain decent people that do great work.
Response by Afford-A-Rooter, Inc.: Thank you for this wonderful review - We hope that you will use our service again, if the need arises and that you will refer us to your friends and family as well. Please keep in mind that we can work on all plumbing - We can fix leaks, repair & add gas lines, install hot water heaters and if necessary repair and or replace water and sewer lines. Thanks again for the great review and have a great day!

This was by far the worst experience I've ever had with a contractor. If you do end up hiring them, here are some tips: - Get everything in writing - Do not expect them to honor their promises - Call the week before, the day before, and the day they're supposed to come to make sure they don't flake on you - Hire a separate company to inspect their work - Call your city to find out if the work needs a permit I'll spare you the 900-word essay. This is what they did to us: - Moved the appointment without telling us - Lied about the work they would do - Only did half the job (I only discovered this after another plumber looked at their work) - Didn't know they had to get a permit to do the work - Charged our credit card as a subscription (so it will charge every year)

Got here a little behind time but made up the time. Did a quick and very good job. Price doubled but so did the work performed. We would hire them again.

Recently I was selling my home. The inspector found some sewer line issues that caused my buyers to balk. I was under extremely tight deadlines and my cash flow was tight, to say the least. If I wasn't able to meet the deadlines, my buyers were going to withdraw and, because my contract on my new home was contingent on the sale of my old place, I would lose my new place. Afford-a-Rooter came to my rescue. Sue, Kyle and the rest of the team went far above and beyond the call of duty. They really and truly saved my contract and my sanity. The crew even took it in stride when my roommate accidentally let my Great Danes outside and they got rushed by a goofy puppy who loves everyone with a pulse. Trust me, it is intimidating to see a 100lb puppy come running at you full speed, even when he is wagging his tail and hopping around like a fool. I don't have the words to express how much they helped me. I recommend Afford-A-Rooter to anyone with plumbing issues big and small. I wish I could give them 2000 stars.

AJ called before he arrived, showed up on time, performed the job without issue, and was a nice guy throughout.

My elderly Mother's basement drain backed up. The repairman that came didn't seem very experienced and wasn't able to clear the line completely. He said it was the best he could do. Before leaving he recommended that we camera the line because he said we may have to replace the entire line to the sewer! $$$ He did not warranty his work. The drain backed up a day later. We called another company (recommended by a plumber!). The other company's repairman cleared the line quickly, efficiently and warrantied his work. We've had no problems since.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
