Project: Install, Repair or Replace Plumbing or Fixtures
Kind, courteous, on-time, professional and very well priced. ABC quoted me 6 hours and over $800. Mike and his partner did the job in an hours! Any plumbing I need, it's Bates plumbing, and all my neighbors, as well.

Project: Install, Repair or Replace Plumbing or Fixtures
After 2 no shows by other plumbers and a really stupid visit from ABC ( oh, this is a really big job. We'll have to come back after we quote the job), Mike Bates scheduled me in quickly, showed up on time and fixed (replaced) 2 leaky pipe joints and a leaky outdoor faucet. All in an hour and for a very reasonable price. You won't go wrong with this company!!

Project: Clean Out a Sewer
Talked with them in the evening and they were here the next day. Had a 10:00 appointment and they were even a little early. Quickly and thoroughly cleaned out my sewer line. Price they quoted me was the price I paid. Very nice and friendly. I will use them again when needed.

Review by Cherise C. in Broadview, IL
Project: Clear a Clogged or Slow Drain
I missed their call and literally called them back 5 seconds later and they did not answer my call. I called them 15 times in a row and they did not answer. The guy sent me a text message as I was calling him and he still didn t answer my call. I sent him 5 text messages in response to his one and he did not respond. I called the number they have listed here on the website and it is not a working number. This is terrible customer service. I took off work for this appt and now I have to find another company and take off another day to get this work completed. I would give them zero stars if I could.
Response by Bates Plumbing, LLC: We would like to apologize regarding the recent issues with our company. We have a high standard of quality and customer service and your plumbing work should never have been an exception. We are looking into the situation to find out if it had something to do with the phone system. We would greatly appreciate the opportunity to discuss this further with you.

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.
