    5.0 Ralph C. Wadesville, IN

    Really felt confident that we made the right choice. We have used Budâ s plumbing in the past and would do so again.

    4.5 William W. Evansville, IN

    Fast, friendly, and effectively took care of the old issue quick and installed new lines. Not only repaired but educational as well about the parts used, type of parts. Giving opinions of the parts used and why using them.

    4.5 Terry G. Newburgh, IN

    They came out the day I called on a failed water heater. I excepted their quote and they installed a new system the next day. Every part of their business is first class.

    1.0 Kelley L. Evansville, IN

    I called Bud's Plumbing on an after hours service call. I was told the additional charge was $299 & that was the only itemized amount on the invoice for after hours. After installation, paying the invoice, & discussing the cost with the owner, it is still unclear how much the after hours service fee actually was. Bud's refuses to discuss any numbers or apply any logic to the invoice & pricing. My original invoice was $3,173. After the fact, I was made aware that Alstadt Plumbing charges $1,695 and Sims Plumbing charges $1,575. The same parts at Lowe's (AO Smith 40 gallon gas water heater, Flextrol expansion tank, and 3/4 pressure reducing valve) cost $634. Bud's charges $1,648 for the same parts, over a 260% markup. The owner was shocked I could come up with what I was charged for material cost, after explaining that sales tax is charged on materials, he couldn't and wouldn't discuss this with me. The technician that came out set the new water heater on the water logged, sinking plywood & left at 9:45pm knowing I was having restoration done. Restoration 1 ripped out the water heater at 8:30am the next morning. Bud's refuses to tell me the cost to reset the water heater because they are billing it to Restoration. A week later after fighting this battle I received a $750 credit.

    4.0 Linda L. Evansville, IN

    Buds plumbing was very professional during installation of our water heater. They answered all our questions about the new unit. Over $2,000.00 for the cheapest gas unit!

    4.5 Norbert S. Evansville, IN

    They did a great job.

    5.0 Marcia S. Houghton Lake Heights, MI

    Repaired a shower diverter issue. Gave us a quote for an outside hydrant and checked a faucet for leaks but found none and they tried to make it leak. Prompt, courteous, skilled, and professional. Highly recommend.

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
