Review by Kathy W. in Austin, TX
I found out after the price jumped from $59 to more than $700 they sent a technician -- not a plumber -- who didn't know how to fix my water heater after he removed a part and then spent a lot of time on the phone with I presume a plumber to figure out how to get hot water again. So my bill reflects on-the-job training for this guy. Heater still isn't fixed because now I have to go buy a part and either try to figure out how to install it myself or hire another plumber to reinstall it.
Response by Benjamin Franklin Plumbing: Kathy, my name is Fred, I am the owner. If you will call our office and ask for me, I will do whatever it takes to make this right. But I need to know the address where the work was done so I can find you in our system.

Don't use them if you have a manufactured home. Find someone who is familiar with that type of structure. Very nice, On time, etc. But they couldn't fix my drainage issue. After 8 hours no results. Septic pumping people had it fixed in an hour or 2 and without pumping septic, as it want the problem. I am sure they would be good for regular building plumbing issues.

I’m very pleased with the response to my issue, the promptness of the repair, and the quality of the work. I do believe this was about a $100 repair as opposed to almost $200.

I’m very satisfied with the service provided by Benjamin Franklin Plumbing. Everyone from the phone operator scheduling my appointment, the customer service rep. confirming that the technician was on his way, and the technician, Junior, were very polite and highly professional!

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.
