My usual plumber was occupied so I looked through the Homestars listings for a suitable replacement. Drain1 looked promising.
The guy who took the call was efficient and was able to book me in for a specific time that would work for my project, which was really helpful.
My job was very simple: hooking up plumbing to a double sink (undermount), installing a faucet, and connecting a new dishwasher. The sink had been installed under the quartz countertop by the countertop installers. The cold and hot water pipes, plus the waste drain out, were in the right location, which simplified matters. So, a new set of PVC pipes to drain, installing an Ikea faucet, and connecting the waste hose from the dishwasher to the PVC drain.
The work was fine; the price, $620, seemed steep.
Obviously, at the end of a long kitchen renovation project I just wanted to get it done. As well, the booking guy didn't mislead me and tell me a bait and switch price (he didn't tell me any price - the plumber told me as he got into my house what the cost would be). But I do feel a bit taken - $620 for a little less than two hours work seems a bit steep to me. The quality of the work was good, and the plumber on site was diligent, conscientious, and kept the work are remarkably clean. All these things are admirable, thus the 8 rating above.
One irritation beyond the price: I was told that they wouldn't secure the dishwasher to the cabinet. Yes, I could do it (and did when the plumber left). But I naively assumed the dishwasher install included the five minutes it took to screw the dishwasher to the cabinet. So it wasn't functional until I completed the install.
Not a huge deal, but if I had been 80 years old, though, or unfamiliar with work like this, I would have paid to have a dishwasher installed and then not have it work.
