Review by in Cedar Rapids, IA
Got same day service and the clog was snaked and I signed up for the drain cleaning via special chemicals they sold me. Their straight forward pricing guide was easy to follow, but when a PVC cleanout broke, they replaced it, but didn't have a line item for doing that type of repair, so they used the cheapest option for that, but it was still 100 bucks. Seemed like a lot for 10 dollars in parts which I could have easily done. I would have spoken up and had them not fix it if I would have known how much it was going to cost. Oh well. At least they'll warranty the repair. Other than that, they were great and fun to work with!

Had a leak under my sink so I called Benjamin Franklin Plumbing. They came out and spent 45 minutes start to finish (including diagnosis), took out one metal pipe and replaced it with PVC. They charged me $329.03 for 45 minutes of labor and a few PVC pipes. Then sat in my driveway for the next 40 minutes on their phones until about 5:30 pm. The work done was fine, but the prices for the time spent and materials is extreme. Will not be calling Benjamin Franklin Plumbing for any future needs.

This was more to find out they needed to do and the costs. One problem was not a problem so scratch that, one my wife need to decide what facet she wants so we are waiting on that, the last was a frozen sump pump outlet it was cleared for now but they need to come back for additional repairs.

They were there when they said. Stayed until they finished. They were very professional and they gave us a quote and stuck to it. We were very pleased.

A little bit pricey ,they charged me 68$ just to drive out there. Which is over 50% of the full cost.

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.
