I had all of my 60 year old galvanized pipe replaced with pex and a new toilet installed in the basement. the Guys were very professional and did a great job: they worked a very long day so that I would not have my water turned off for another day. I have great water pressure now and couldn't be happier with the service I received! I wish I had done it a long time ago.

After some struggles with another plumber last year, I called Universal to come out and replace all the pipes in a nearly 100-year-old home. They sent Billy and Drew out to give me an estimate and Billy explained everything thoroughly - where they would have to open holes in the walls, length of the job, pricing, etc. What impressed me right off was Billy said to use pex instead of trying to sell me copper - saving $4000 right off the top. They set a date and came out as planned, they replaced every pipe in a two-story w/basement home - and just as I was told, they did it in two days. The previous plumber took 2 weeks to change out hot water pipes in the basement only. When they were done, they cleaned up everything so you would barely know they were there (if it was not for the holes in the wall) - something the last company never even considered. Now there were a few minor problems along the way that I noticed after, but upon calling, they were very responsive - out in 2 hours and fixed the leak in the backyard drain. I am not a plumber by any means, so it is hard for me to grade. But I do know my water pressure has never been this high in the 20 years I have owned this home....and in the end, when the city sent out their inspector and he raved about the work they did....who am I to argue? If he says five-stars, then I guess I have to as well....and the city I live in, is not where Universal is based, he told me afterward, he had not worked with them.

There was a $39 trip charge that I was told about before booking, but it was not really explained. It was on a Saturday afternoon. Otherwise, very pleased with the technician/work performed and the fact that they were able to come out quickly. I would use this plumbing business again for sure.

Review by in Grosse Pointe Park, MI
Called for a weekend emergency main drain cleanout. They billed my credit card for $350 prior to the tech s arrival. The tech said his drum-style rodding machine was too large for the drain and he could not clear it. He did not try different cutters or a different cleanout point. He also said that there is likely a house trap that needs to be excavated. He recommended that I call the company on Monday to get a full quote, likely in the thousands. He emphasized that he does not work on commission, even though the dispatcher had told me their techs work on commission. I called my regular plumber on Monday, who came through with an even larger sectional rodder and pushed a larger cutter all the way through the line, clearing the clog in about 25 minutes. Universal Plumbing charged me $350 to come out and create a sense of urgency in order to get thousands more out of me.

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.
