2.5 Aaron S. Suffolk, VA

They quoted me a replacement water heater, but the old one was under warranty. They made no effort to help work the warranty until I took care of the claim myself. When I did, and quoted the labor to replace it, I saved 100 by using another company. They still owe me a refund on the original estimate, two weeks later.

Response from Company:

Aaron, thank you for your comments and concerns. I have taken this to the appropriate manager to discuss these issues, and have been assured that all will be addressed in a timely manner. We know we are not the cheapest in town, nor are we the most expensive, but we, and I can assure you this, we are the best! I hope that in the future, should you have any service needs at your home, that you can find your way to call American Mechanical again. Aaron, again, thank you for your input and know that it is being reviewed.

5.0 Vincent B. Hampton, VA

My experience with American Mechanical was exceptional! I was sent identifying information about who my service technician who would be, expected time of arrival and also a call from Mr. Rich Peterson to advise me of how far away he was and his estimated of arrival. Upon arrival, Mr. Peterson identified himself and came in to assess my problem. He provided my wife and I information about options and the estimates. Once we decided our option, he promptly started the work and did so in a very professional way. He removed the old water heater and replaced it with no problems and in a minimal amount of time. After installation was complete, Mr. Peterson gave us instructions about the features of the new water heater and instructed us on yearly maintenance. He was very thorough, very professional and he is, indeed, an outstanding representative for American Mechanical Inc.

Response from Company:

Oh Gosh! A BIG Thank you, Vincent, for this amazing review of Rich Peterson and of American Mechanical! Your words and expression of your service experience are truly appreciated! And yes, Rich is one of the best of the best plumbers that we are lucky to have on our staff of Technicians, and his customer service level sets many standards around here for any of the newer folks that come onboard. We love hearing from the customers that are willing to share their enthusiasm found from their service tech and the service they have received. Again. Thank you for this great review, as well as the 5-Star rating!

5.0 John R. Hampton, VA

The Repairman (Dennis Kraklio) was as professional as you can get. He listened to the issues I had with my hot water heater. He suggested several alternatives to repair or replace. I have been out of work for almost a year, so expense was an issue. Dennis said "no problem" and came up with a repair that worked out great for my family. He did the work quickly and professionally. Dennis is a definitely an asset to the American Mechanical family. I would not hesitate to call American Mechanical for any household repair issue in the future. Thank You Dennis for all you have done for me and my family,

Response from Company:

WOW! Thank you, John, for this amazing review! Let me begin by saying; Yes, Dennis is one of our best, of the best technicians, and his skill level, and with his customer service approach. In all situations, he can always find a way to get the repairs done and keep the customer happy. We are the lucky ones to have Dennis on our staff, and one of the family, as you stated. It is good to know that he was able to formulate a repair plan for your water heater and keep you within the budget. John, again, thank you.

3.0 James T. Chesapeake, VA

There prices a standard as they say, but high.

Response from Company:

We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback with us. We do try to remain competitive in our pricing, but we aren't always the highest or the lowest in our industry. We attempt to target our flat rates as what we deem fair to our customers, but priced right for the quality and value of service you receive in your home and from the products we specialize in. We appreciate you choosing us to install your water heater even with reservations in regards to our price, and we hope we exceeded your expectations working in your home. Thanks so much James!

  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.

    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.
