    YOU CANNOT HIRE BETTER than Richie and his team. I first found them through my friend and GC, who knew the reputation of many of the local contractors, good and bad. Since first being introduced to them, they've worked on my main bathroom (total gut renovation), sewage backup, various minor issues with my sinks (leaks, hard water deposits, and replacements), my toilets (valve replacements), and today he just replaced my hot water heater. Anything I've thrown at them they've handled with ease. I wanted a custom antique vanity upstairs and they were able to customize the faucet holes easily and make them nice and tight. They are working with me to install a vintage sink with hard-to-find hardware and accessories. If you give them all the info they need in advance they will arrive with EVERY part you need on the truck, eliminating extra trips to the supply house. On one occasion, instead of charging me extra, he tipped me off that one of the parts I needed to fix a faulty tub pop-up assembly would be replaced by the manufacturer for free (and it was)! Richie even stocks water heaters and was able to address my issue almost immediately. He is also reliable and shows up when he says he will. I am 100% confident that Richie will stand behind anything he installs and that he won't screw me on pricing. When you don't know much about plumbing (or HVAC, or electrical or whatever), you have to be able to trust the people you hire to do this for you. Without question, Richie Hoffman and his team are the people I trust.

    The crew from Hoffman Plumbing helped us out today with the installation of a new hot water heater...and they were awesome! From first contact to completion of the job, we couldn't be more satisfied. They offered a great price, arrived on time, worked neatly and completed the job perfectly! Would highly recommend them!

    Rich Hoffman came on time, cleaned the clogged pipe of my sink and replaced the P trap. He was on time, did a good job and cleaned up afterwards. His rates are very reasonable. I am a happy customer.

    Rich and Darryl did a very nice job removing my old filters. My under the sink space is horribly tiny but Rich still managed to get in. The only thing is they didn't shut off the obsolete valve completely so I have to crawl in to wrench it to the correct position. They also didn't cap the pipe with high pressure brass cap, make me feel unsecured with just a valve. Overall they were very on time, quote fairly and explain all details withou being annoyed.

    Rich was a good guy. Friendly, patient. He had a trainee with him and what I saw he is a good teacher as well. They got the job done in a timely manner and the price seemed reasonable. I'd use them again in a second.

    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.
