Main drain plugged from kitchen sink

I found Rooter Way here on Homestars - called him because he had good reviews and was local - Dan answered the phone himself and I described situation - he said he would come between an hour and hour and a half and he arrived at about the hour.
He immediately pinpointed the problem and brought in a large drain snake (we had already tried 3 snakes ourselves to know avail but his was a larger unit.) Some of our problem was leftover from a previous repair several years ago.
Dan worked hard on it for about 2 hours and cleared the obstruction which was not easy (we would never have been able to do ourselves).
After he gave us the option of a camera going down and a full drain flush which would clear the drain completely but may or may not be required in the future.

My options were made clear, there was no high pressure tactics and Dan charged fairly for the 2 hours work plus travel time and specialized equipment he had to use. I also never asked the price before he started so he could have abused that trust and he did not.

I saw the one negative review on this site of his but did not feel that it was reasonable to expect a plumber on the road to fax insurance certificates instantly so I ignored that.

I would happily use his services again and recommend him. I feel I got good value for his services and he provided no incentive to write this review other than his good service.

Snake main drain & consult

We have used The Rooter Way on 2 separate occasions and have found the technician to be professional, courteous and very helpful. Our main drain was cleared with a thorough explanation provided of the situation. The Rooter Way also consulted on several other plumbing questions around the house, which enabled fixes to be put in place. Recommend The Rooter Way for your plumbing issues!

Basic Plumbing Repair

We called this company to do an onsite plumbing repair first thing in the morning. We called back during midday to ask a for an insurance certificate (a standard request) and he told us that he was way too busy to fax a document and that we should just get someone else.

Very unprofessional, now we are left in the lurch after he (Dan) committed to the job. I would not use this company at all.

Adding a Basement Bathroom

I hired The Rooter Way to do the plumbing in my unfinished basement in order to add a second bathroom in my home. The work was done extremely quickly, and to the highest standard. The licensed plumber was very friendly and honest.

Drain camrea inspection

I live in a 60 yr old bungalow and had water flooding my basement during heavy rains. I called The Rooter Way and their technician was at my house within 1 hour and knew exactly what the problem was. The video camera tool that the tech used to inspect all of my drains and show me the problem was excellent. I will recommend them to my neighbours for sure.
