Mr. Hoffman is very patient for the work he does. Without him my new bathroom would still be a disaster. I will recommend and be calling him in the future.

PROJECT IS NOT COMPLETED YET WHICH STARTED ON SEPTEMBER 15, 2015. Ongoing Project - Rich Hoffman gave me a business card with a home address in Scotch Plains, NJ, but there is a business address in Westfield, NJ. I only had a written Estimate. On 9-10-2015, I wrote a check for $850.00 deposit which was one-half of $1,700.00 estimate. I did not get a Contract or a Permit from him at the time. I asked Rich Hoffman did he call the Water Company. He said, ���No���. On 9-15-2015, Christian and a helper came unprepared as they had to run out to get a pick ax and a water pump. I was told to ���call water company tell them you need 1��� curb valve put in because you are getting a new water main ASAP.��� Last determination was that curb valve was not needed to repair a previous polybutylene repair. They left the job site with the open ditch uncovered and 2 small sawhorses. I called to get plywood to cover the open excavation as a predicted Category 4 storm was coming. Since no one showed up, I had to use plywood from my attic floor, 2 garbage cans, and 2 safety cones as safety measures. I have been left with a temporary fix and an unfinished excavation site for 34 Days, so far. A repair across the street took 1 Day to complete. In my opinion, Very Poor Customer Service. More details can be provided upon request.
Response by Hoffman Plumbing & Heating: Customer had her water main repaired by another plumbing company several years ago. She called me in to repair their repair which was done improperly and requested that I fix it within 2 weeks so she wouldn't get fined by the water company. We agreed to do so with no permit, using existing markouts. After hand digging to expose the water main and realizing the pipe was repaired improperly, I suggested that she replace the whole water service in part because the original pipe is involved in an ongoing class action suit against the pipe company and would continue to fail. Customer refused to go that route and demanded that I get a permit and call for new markouts which caused a delay to the job until October 18th. Meanwhile the permit was approved and the customer refused to pay for it. I sent an employee to cover the open ditch before the predicted storm but the customer had taken it upon herself to cover it. Regarding my location, I have moved to Scotch Plains a couple years ago, however I had a previous address in Westfield which is still found in search engines at times. This was a very difficult customer. Prior to this review I had a 5 star rating and take pride in my company and our work.

Added a new gas line for an oven, and replaced a very old gas shutoff valve by the dryer with a new one. Very nicely done.

Review by in Scotch Plains, NJ
Rich Hoffman and his crew are professional, very knowledgeable, and fairly priced. I would highly recommend them! Our water heater went and flooded part of our basement. Hoffman Plumbing showed up immediately to remedy the situation. In speaking to Rich, I found out he's been a plumber for over 25 years which made me feel good knowing we're in good hands. We've hired Hoffman Plumbing for a few other jobs since our water heater emergency and have been very happy with the quality of work as well as the prices. A+++++

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.
