Review by in Philadelphia, PA
They explained the difference between the French drain I had in my garage and a regular drain and did not over charge me and cleaned the drain.

I call Kerry my guardian angel. After I waited all day for my usual plumber who never showed up, I called Kerry at nine P.M. on a holiday. He was there within an hour, worked until midnight, and brought extra equipment with him just incase. He put on a new outside faucet that had broken because of the cold weather and a shut-off valve that I didn't know I was missing. He was awesome and reasonable! He is my plumber from now on, and I have given his cards to my friends and family members.

If it was possible to give zero stars I would. I hired Kerry to fix some plumbing in a high end rental rehab in a nice area of downtown Philadelphia. The first thing I will tell you is that we negotiated a price of $900 for plumbing and some small electrical work yet he charged my brother $1100 when he left. Part of that charge was $250.00 for travel time to go pick up shower knobs. He sent a worker out to pick something up for an hour and charged $250! He installed two sinks, one of which does not drain properly- the bowl fills up with water, so I had to get that fixed. He installed a garbage disposal and dishwasher. I had to get that fixed because he did not do the work properly- the drain line for the dishwasher did not have a high point above the garbage disposal. Neither were installed to code. He hooked up a dryer vent and even did that wrong, I had to get that fixed as well. He incorrectly installed 3 shower knobs. They are not threaded nor are they waterproof. There are basically 3 holes in the shower wall where water can leak during a shower now. This all has to be replaced and fixed. He removed 3 chrome handles from this shower and replaced them with the cheapest clear plastic ones on the market. He did not leave the chrome ones in my apartment- he took them with him. When I asked him about this he said "I didn't steal your chrome knobs". Then I told him they weren't in the apartment. He admitted they were on his truck, plumbers shouldn't be taking materials from a job site. They were brand new chrome handles that could have been returned or used in one of my other buildings. There are 3 knobs on the shower and two say hot, one says cold. I have to replace them as well and buy new chrome knobs since he removed mine from the job site. It was very hard to have a conversation with Kerry as he was screaming at me, unable to have a normal adult discussion about his work. I had to pay somebody to come in and fix every single thing he did. Two licensed contractors have come in to do work in the apartment (one to fix all of the plumbing) and both explained that his work was completely sub par and none of it was done properly or to code. I cannot believe this person is licensed. The work is terrible and Kerry is a total scam artist. I gave him a chance to fix this but he wouldn't listen. He talked over me, screamed at me, then hung up. It was a truly disappointing experience "working" with Kerry from start to finish.
Response by The House Doctor Plumbing, LLC: I've been a plumber for 25 years and unfortunately you can't make everyone happy. 1st I write up a invoice and I give and honor all of my work. 2nd I take pictures of everything I do. when Ms Wendy called me she started off by calling me a fake plumber, a thief, and more. I didn't even know who I was talking to until 3 minutes after she finished reading off a list that someone gave her. I live in Philadelphia and she lives in California, so that means she probably didn't see my work. I did everything that I stated on my invoice weeks ago. Why wait so long to call me with a list of problems. Yes I did get a little loud because she disrespected me as soon as she started talking. I sent Homeadvisor a copy of my invoice and pictures of my work. I just believe this issue could have been resolved in a better and professional manner. Now I have this disappointing review that I can't do anything about.

Kerry was awesome. Not only did he install the shut-off valve to the gas line feeding the range as requested, he also disconnected the refrigerator from the water line and relit the pilot on the gas water heater and the boiler that PGW had turned off and did not tell me. I will definitely hire him again!

Our experience with The House Doctor Plumbing was great, they took the time to explain all that were to be done as far as digging up the ground and repairing the outside pipe. The price for doing the job was fair. It was especially refreshing for me to know that this was a company that value integrity. My husband and I will definitely be using them again and have already recommended the house doctor to someone who is looking to have a bathroom build on the first floor of their home. We haven't had any problem with water going into the basement, since the pipe had been replaced.
Response by The House Doctor Plumbing, LLC: Thank you for your business and your great review (consumer name withheld per their request)

He was nice and did good work for a reasonable price. However he was very late and did not call to let me know how late he would be and I had to reschedule for the next day.
Response by The House Doctor Plumbing, LLC: I do want to apologize for not communicating with you. It won't happen again if you were to call me again.

Great price for the job, and offer 90 day warranty. Arrived a bit later than originally stated but wasn't a big deal for me and was worth the wait.

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.
