They worked quickly, and explained everything as they went. I am very happy with their work.

Steve Akian called me promptly this morning, asked all of the right questions regarding the job, explained their policies and the pricing, and arranged to send a licensed plumber today. Bill M. arrived right on time. He was professional, friendly, and had a wonderful positive attitude. He proceeded to diagnose the problem which was not easy and had it repaired in no time. I then asked if he could look at several other minor plumbing problems. He readily agreed to do so and had all of them repaired perfectly in no time. The charge was more than reasonable for Akian's prompt and professional service and the quality of their work. Not only will I call Akian Plumbing in the future, I will refer my friends and family without reservation. Tom U. Wellesley, MA

We had a plumber before who charged $300 and did not fix a leak. These men immediately saw the problem and fixed it. They also installed 2 toilets very efficiently.
Response by Akian Plumbing & Home Services: Helen, Thank you for taking the time to review us. We greatly appreciate it and look forward to working with you again!

Called them out to stop the kitchen sink from running a steady stream of water while in the off position. It took a total of 10 minutes to fix the leak but he snapped the screw holding the faucet together. I didn't notice this until after they had left. The owner of Akian Plumbing, Steve, called to say how sorry he was for what happened and wanted to make it right by coming out ASAP. I appreciate his call and his effort to fix the situation. It made me re-evaluate my rating and I will definitely recommend them for caring enough to make this right. Thank you .
Response by Akian Plumbing & Home Services: Lynn, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Just want to clarify a few things. The original call was to assess possible damage caused by a tree falling onto your roof that may have hit a plumbing vent. While we were on site we were asked to inspect and repair the kitchen faucet. Our Technician did not snap any screw off. What you had found was a spare repair part that had dropped in the sink that was full of dishes and our Tech didn't realize it had fallen. We offered to come back out and assess this when you contacted us and scheduled an appointment immediately but shortly after you had called us stating it already had been taken care of. We are an honest company and all that work here acknowledge when they make a mistake. I also want to note we were on site for 2 hours. Thank you for slightly adjusting the review.

Professional, knowledgeable, very thorough, and they were quick to respond to my emergency last winter on a Sunday night ; broken pipes flooding the basement. I called them back months later to fix a problem with the kitchen drain and am now hiring Steve to handle the plumbing of our kitchen renovation. Quality workmanship at a reasonable price;.
Response by Akian Plumbing & Home Services: Mary - Thank you for taking the time to write this review here and on the other platforms that I noticed you reviewed us on. We're happy to have you as a customer and appreciate the business you've given us so far! Thank you so much for being a returning client!

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.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
