Plumbing services

Jim did a great job installing 2 toilets for me, he was very neat and tidy. Also did a great job with plumbing under the kitchen sink. I would highly recommend, they were very helpful and did a great cleanup after.

Drains and BFV

Well, I have to concur with other reviews. Don't use them for big jobs. Buyer beware. Small jobs like faucet repair/replace etc., fine. Had good experience with Bradshaw for these small jobs and decided to use them for this big job. Really not interested in doing the work. The work of the drain install etc. was good. The rest was not. Customer Service is an alien concept to them. Very argumentative. Hence the low rating. They have lost a long term loyal customer (over 20 yrs). Payment options are not great especially in these times of COVID-19 (cheque or e-transfer only, no repayment terms). I was planning to use Bradshaw for more work, NOT. So long Bradshaw Plumbing. After this experience I regret using Bradshaw. Should have gone with another company. Oh well, live and learn.

Bathroom remodel

Very happy with the work done! Larry who did most of the work was great and was careful not to make a mess anywhere. Chris the tiler is a perfectionist. He showed me my options before he laid the first tile and did everything I asked. Wayne Bradshaw showed up on site the first day to make sure everything was in order. A well oiled machine! Highly recommended.

Leaking Pipe from Wall to Washing Machine

Had a leaky pipe coming out from the wall, called Bradshaw Plumbing and they were able to schedule an appointment quickly. The guys were polite and was glad to see were wearing masks during these uncertain times. (as I was as well) The work was done quickly and fixed my issue! I would definitely use them again for future plumbing needs. Thanks

Replacing main water valve

my neighbor recommended the company, Brodie came in to repair ,very professional ,knew what he was doing and great work ethics completed the job in less then 3o mins .
Would recommend Brodie for sure from Bradshaw .
Pricing I thought was a bit high ,as it is a lot of money during the difficult times.

Plumbing

Came to replace gasket on rear exit toilet. When completed--wrote that it wasn't warranted against leaks. Leaked the next day. That was when I noticed he wouldn't warrantee on my work order. But he didnt tell us that up front. This company is at our retirement condo almost everyday....which doesnt look good in my eyes. They are next door to our condo. WE Just recently moved in. Toilet is heavy duty and is attached to thick brass rear exit (does not attach to drywall).
I believe used wrong gasket. Didnt

Bathroom reno

We have used Bradshaw plumbing for small plumbing jobs in the past and they were great. I would definitely recommend them for that.

HOWEVER, for reno jobs, buyer beware! Check every minute detail before signing anything because they do not stand behind their installation!

First: Read the review of 0/10 from 12/20/2016 titled "Leaking Pipe In Shower Stall + Quote To Re-Do Shower Stall" as that was our experience with the sales person EXACTLY -- no need to write the exact same details.

When we decided to do a bathroom reno and we saw such great reviews on-line we decided to go through Bradshaw even though they were substantially more expensive than any other quotes. Our first quote from Bradshaw was for $16,000, which was NOT a full gut, it included a piece of linoleum to cover the current floor tiles because removing them would be difficult because they were properly installed, as well as a laminate counter so we are not talking high end finishings.

In the end we decided not to re-do the shower (went with another company for that), didn't replace the floor, didn't replace the toilet, just did the sink & counter (again, not high end) and shower fixtures but that still cost $8000. We agreed to it but really, we felt ripped-off in the end.

The products arrived for both the cabinet and counter as damaged. The installer only told me this AFTER I noticed the issue. He was checking to see if it could be fixed or if they would have to be sent back for a new counter AFTER dis-assembling my current set-up. Thankfully they determined a way to fix the counter by removing a strip of the laminate that was damaged and glueing on a new piece. Ah, okay...

It took 2 days to install, plus a follow-up visit to replace the damaged part of the cabinet.

In the end it looked fine. BUT a matter of months later and the caulking around the sink was all deteriorating. We called Bradshaw and caulking isn't covered (even though the sales associate we discussed everything with originally had said if we had any issues just call them -- right!). So we had to either leave it looking like crap or fix it ourselves or hire someone to fix it. I have never had this issue with caulking before. When it was installed I had mentioned to the installer that it was such a small amount of caulking applied and he said everyone else applies too much and this is all you need. Right (see photo supplied).

We then noticed that where the laminate strip was removed and glued on that the installers cut was not precise leaving a small gap so water can get in under the laminate. Again, not Bradshaw's issue as we signed off on the installation.

2 years after the installation, we now are experiencing water hammer on the faucet they installed, which means we now have to replace it ourselves. Obviously not as high quality a product as we were lead to believe.

Will never use them for a reno again!

Check everything, and I mean everything with a fine-tooth comb before giving final payment. Get everything in writing! and if there is anything you are not happy with get it fixed immediately before paying as they do not stand behind their installations.

Find old plumbing parts, they help you save money

Working with old plumbing is challenging. As a Do It Yourselfer, it can be frustrating. After a courtesy call with Bradshaw Plumbing, what I thought would be a hopeless job became possible! I avoid the need to replace an old tub faucet shower set by going to Bradshaw. I needed an old pull knob shower diverter and they had it. When I called to explain the problem, I was met with a courteous knowledgeable lady on the phone. She offered many suggestions and told me to bring the old part in (see first picture). She even covered tips on what to do to avoid potential issues. Meeting her and staff at store did not disappoint. So courteous and helpful. Installed replacement part and the old faucets works without any issue (second picture). Price was excellent too. Can't be any happier! I plan to come back for bigger projects.

Purchase of Toto Toilet

Needed a replacement toilet for powder room. Did a lot of research but wanted to actually sit on different toilets to see how they would feel and test the heights. Checked Lowes, Rona, Home Depot and Bath Emporium but the stores only had one or two on the floor with the exception of Bath Emporium which had a few more. Luckily I came across Bradshaw Plumbing and called them. Spoke to Karen who was very helpful and knowledgeable so was encouraged to go to their showroom. Karen was busy so her colleague Tim offered to help until Karen was free. I got to try several toilets and ended up buying one of the toilets on my shortlist. They were friendly, professional and I would highly recommend them.

Driver is a hazard

Driving along the 401 when a Bradshaw Plumbing van totally cut me off. After cutting me off, he hammered his brakes, as to try and cause an accident. After the incident I watched the van weave in and out of lanes without even the courtesy of a signal. I have never had work done by this company, but based on this drivers disregard for commuters, I would not recommend this company. They must not care about safety at all. (401 Salem rd 06/30/18)
