This shop charges flat rates for their work. This makes the bill extremely large if you have two small jobs or them to do. You get charged for two service calls. When I called to make an appointment, the receptionist would not quote me a price, but would only say that the technician would quote me the price. Upon arrival, the courteous and competent technician said I needed two faucet cartridges to repair the two shower problems. He quoted $314 for EACH shower. When I questioned him about the price, he said they were a flat rate shop. I could barely stomach the $314 for one, but the same price for the second was completely out of line for a $40 part at HD. Bottom line, I wouldn't recommend using a flat rate shop if you have more than one job to do, like I did. The Einstein office did not mention they were flat rate. Good repair technician, poor business model.
Response by Einstein Plumbing and Heating: Most of Einstein's customers prefer our flat rate system. Our pricing is up front, with no hidden charges, and presented to our customer's before any work is started. Hourly companies could charge for hours of work for something that may take another plumber an hour or less to complete. Our flat rate system takes out these kinds of inconsistencies from each project, and lets our plumber focus on what is most important: fixing our customer's plumbing issues with quality workmanship. Besides Einstein's workmanship guarantee, our flat rate is another reason we have so many return customers. We also offer financing options, senior citizen and military discounts. Check out Yelp for current specials.

The options for fixing my issue were explained thoroughly, the work was done quickly and when the plumber left you would never have known he was here except that my leaking sink was no longer leaking.

The plumber was friendly and explained what had been done once he was finished. I would call again if I had a plumbing problem. I am very satisfied with the work.

I would recommend this professional but definitely get more than 1 quote. He did good work but it was very over priced.

Efficient, good work. They are an all electronic billing company, so have your credit card handy.

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)
