I called and left a message at 3 a.m. and received a call back from Max at 7:30 a.m. Joe arrived a few hours later to assess the situation and make recommendations regarding a toilet leaking from the wax seal. I elected to replace the toilet because of a faulty valve in addition to the wax ring issue. The following day my toilet was replaced by James. The work took about an hour. A couple of other plumbing concerns were evaluated and resolved. I highly recommend this company because of their promptness, courtesy and expertise. Additionally, I was given a discount because I found them also on Facebook and I was not charged an evaluation fee.

Even though the team arrived much later than expected, the work was well done. I was kept informed of their arrival and reason for being late. I will use them again.

I highly recommend Windy City Rooter. The price is right and the staff is courteous, knowledgeable, honest and got the job done the same day I called. I have referred Windy City Rooter to my friends and family and they have all had nothing but a wonderful experience dealing with this company. I will never use another

They called when they were on their way and were on time. They reviewed the job and saw what was needed. They drove to get the part then came back and fixed it. It's working well. The only issue is that I was told by the company that I would receive a quote before any work started. That didn't happen. I was presented a bill after the job was done.
Response by Windy City Rooter, Inc.: Dear Valued Customer, Our company strives to provide the best plumbing and sewer service to set us apart from your average plumber. As part of this service, we come out, free of charge, to diagnose exactly what the problem is and provide customers with a price (or price range) of what the cost will be. In line with our policy of no obligation, free estimates, our technician has indicated that you were advised the minimum labor cost to repair your high end toilet would be $150.00. Upon your consent to move forward with the repair, he proceeded to obtain the necessary parts from a specialty faucet shop. It seems highly unlikely you would have allowed our technician back into your home to perform the repair without a full understanding of cost. In the end, the total you were charged was $150, the same price you were given up front. While we do apologize if you feel there was any miscommunication, we are happy to hear that you were satisfied with the customer service and quality of work we provided. We value your business and hope you will consider us to serve your future plumbing needs. Thank you.

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.
