I found Forbes Mechanical through this site and initially used them to replace a broken hot water tank. It was a bit of an emergency, since ours had stopped working and of the four companies that I contacted, they were the only ones that returned my call in a timely manner. They came to the house the next day to replace the tank and I was very impressed with the service, the speed and the friendliness of the Forbes employees.
Therefore, when I recently needed a gas line installed to accommodate a new gas stove, I went straight to Forbes. However, my husband's friend had recommended another plumber, who was supposedly cheaper. After having both Forbes and a slightly cheaper competitor in to assess the job, it became painfully apparent that the cheaper plumber did not have the same skill set or knowledge as Forbes (eg. couldn't guarantee where my stove would end up, wasn't sure how to run the line through the basement etc.). As a result, the cheapest option was not the best value, which is an important consideration, when choosing someone to make changes in your home.
Martin from Forbes did the work and the post-inspection hook up, two days ago, and the experience was just as pleasurable as the first time. Again, it was done correctly, they showed up right on time and were super friendly and professional.
I would highly recommend Forbes to anyone searching for quality workmanship at a fair price. They are outstanding!
