plumbing, heating and gasfitting

We hired Forbes Mechanical to do some work on our boilers in both our homes. Martin and his staff (John & David) exceeded our expectations. They were honest, skilled, professional and very respectful of our property. Martin provided us with his diagnostic analysis and options. He and his staff took great care to explain the problems and potential solutions. The work was done promptly and we are very satisfied with the results. We will be using this company for our future plumbing needs and would not hesitate in recommmending them. They provided us with excellent ethical services and workmanship.

Martin is great!

Forbes Mechanical is EXTREMELY good and very professional!
The employees are clean, respectful, and when I was asking questions they said yes maam and no maam!! My past experience with plumbers was NOT pleasant. But Forbes Mechanical employees are ALL respectful and kind, but professional and very helpful. I didn't know such plumbers existed!! Great Job Martin!! You have great integrity. I will always go with Forbes!!!

Basement Development

We used Forbes Mechanical Inc. for our basement development and at the same time did some upgrades in the rest of the house. We were given good advice on fixtures and not pressured in any of our decisions. They also gave timely advice for things that I had not thought of; for example, Martin suggested we consider running our A/C rough in lines before drywall (that would have been frustrating later!), we also have a large bathroom in the basement and could easily fit 2 sinks which we did at Martin's recommendation. We later added a plumbed in coffee maker and Forbes ran the additional water line for minimal cost and at short notice. We met 3 of their plumbers and all were knowledgeable, neat and polite. Forbes made the whole plumbing process pleasant.

New Hot Water Tank and Gas Line Installed for Stove

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!

New toilet installation

We are relatively new homeowners of a 1950s era bungalow. And we have ZERO plumbing knowledge so we were pretty overwhelmed when it came to finding a reliable, professional, honest company. I am really grateful for the reviews at Homestars - that's how I discovered Forbes.

We first spoke with Martin at Forbes and we received a fair quote on a new toilet for our main bathroom. Thank you so much to Andrew, who showed up on time, was pleasant and professional throughout the entire job.

We called them again when we were having some drainage issues with our downstairs toilet. Again, they showed up when they said they would and solved the problem.

We highly recommend Forbes and will undoubtedly be using their services again.

Water softner and other odd jobs as needed

In the work that has been done in the hotel, we have found that Forbes Mechanical has great values and understands the importance of building a relationship in customer service through integrity and quality. Whether the job is big or small it will be done well. Forbes Mechanical continues to provide us with quick and efficient results. We highly recommend them for commercial or residential projects.

Dishwasher installation

I wanted a dishwasher installed in my kitchen where there wasn't an option for one. I was told by several plumbers that this couldn't be done without ripping open the floor and running new water lines and power. We called in Forbes to take a look. After a little thought and some time Dwight, from Forbes, said it could be done. He came back, with his apprentice Andrew, and had a perfect running dishwasher right where I wanted it in no time at all! This made me happy, happy, HAPPY!! The work ethic and presentation of this company is truly outstanding! Gold star for you boys!
