Review by in Bradenton, FL
Gary was great! Extremely efficient, polite and honest. We had a shower valve replaced, that ended up including replacing the main shut off valve to our house. If we ever need a plumber again, I'm calling him!

Review by Jerry N. in Bradenton, FL
I hired Richards plumbing to clear my drain from the curb to the main and clear a bathtub drain. The quoted me ~$140. The plumber arrived and snaked the tube. He broke the snake in the drain but eventually got it out. He then proceeded to tell us that the p trap was broken and would need to be replaced. He said the cast iron tub would have to be destroyed and removed, shower tiles removed, floor tiles removed, vanity and toilet removed. They would jackhammer the floor to get to the old pipes and then replace them with new plastic pipes. I asked for an estimate and the plumber said he doesn’t do estimates and would send someone out. Without sending anyone out the company sent me an estimate via email for $4,553. They charged us $127 and when we asked why it was so much the plumber said that he didn’t even charge us for his broken equipment. Who ever heard of such a thing? I wasn’t satisfied so I went to Home Depot and bought a snake for $23. I almost bought the drain camera that was sitting next to it that was only $99. It took me 10 minutes to clear the drain myself. I went to the business and told them what had happened. They willingly gave me a refund. I told them that it was grossly irresponsible to offer to do that much demolition for over $4k without even using a camera to determine if that was the problem. What a horrible plumber. Absolutely terrible business practices.

Professional. Prompt. Very knowledgeable. Fixed the plumbing problem (that a Home Depot dish washer installer created) and also put us in contact with restoration company that removed damaged cupboards and installed new ones.

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.
