Review by Kyle J. in Columbia, PA
Project: Clean Out a Sewer
In short, I will NEVER recommend the services of Benjamin Franklin to anyone. I was charged for services that were NOT provided, as shown on the invoice vs. the notes from the technician. I was charged $1375 to have my line jetted, a camera inspection, line cable clear, and chemical treatment. When the technician arrived, he jetted only the trap, told me that the line from the house to the trap was clear, the problem happened between trap and the main sewer line, and that it would cost me $7,500 for them to come out and fix the issue. I was left with a backed up sewer line, told my pipes were broken beyond repair, and told to give Benjamin Franklin a call when I wanted all of my sewer line replaced. That is extortion. I called another line-clearing service, and they came out the next day, only to discover that the line from my house to the trap was clogged solid with months of build-up. It was so bad, they could not even get the camera more than a few feet into the pipe. Once they jetted the line, my sewer is working smoothly again. The pipe line is intact, it was just clogged solid. There is no way in hell that the technician from Benjamin Franklin jetted the line. I will be fighting to get my money back for services not rendered. I will never utilize the --services-- of Benjamin Franklin again, and I strongly recommend using a plumbing service other than Benjamin Franklin.
Response by Benjamin Franklin Plumbing: Thank you for your comments. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, their technicians, staff, and managers are committed to providing the highest level of customer care. We apologize for the unfortunate experience you had on a recent service call, and that it did not meet your expectations. We are reviewing the details and will be contacting you in the near future.

Project: Install, Replace or Repair a Main Sewer Pipe
When I called early Sunday evening (about 6 PM) Benjamin Franklin responded quickly, within an hour. Benjamin Franklin had already been at the site the night before and had a new crew on the scene the next day by the time Secco called. This may have been an anomally on Secco s part, but it s the situation I experienced. The emergency aspect was over in three days, that of diagnosing the problem with complicated old pipes being dug up and replaced. The final finishing work is still in process - replacing the lawn and adding resettled gravel on the parking pad. Communication and courtesy along with a job well done is all key to customer satisfaction. While the total job is not complete, expectations have been satisfied and thanks to the job leader remaining in touch, we know what to expect. We would definitely recoomend trying Benjamin Franklin for your ion, be it a planned project or an emergency.

We were charged $1,500 for a tech to replace 9 shut off valves under the sinks in our bathrooms, kitchen, and basement. It took the tech less than 2 hours. He was very professional and did a great job. But after looking into actual material costs (these valves are $5 a piece) my husband called in to speak to a manager and asked if they could provide a breakdown of material and labor costs. He was told that Benjamin Franklin does not provide these and that he just *does not know how much it costs to run a business.* He was also told that another supervisor would give him a call back early the next week and it has been 17 days and no call. If you are considering this company definitely get other quotes or you will be overcharged. You are better off going with a local company. We were taken advantage of and WAY OVERCHARGED.

Staff worked quickly with good results. They were good communicators, and I was very pleased. My only complaint was that I didn't get a call back when they said they would, and they also didn't call the morning of the service to say they were coming, as promised.

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.
