  • “Although more expensive than local handymen in the area, I got just what was promised and it made spending the extra so worth while. Alex worked quickly and explained everything he was doing. Showed up a little early and was professional and polite. He left the bathroom spotless, as if he was never there.”

  • “I used them recently when the hot water heater died while we at guests at the house. I was not house, worked everything out over the phone, and the problem was fixed within 2 hours - start to finish. The price was fair. Upon returning to the beach, I noticed that the hot water was a little hotter than desired - this can happen when a new thermostat is installed. Once call, and they returned to adjust the settings that afternoon at no additional cost. Definitely recommended if you need service at Ocean Isle”

    H , Ocean Isle Beach, NC

  • “Taylor was sent to my home , responding to my call about no hot water supply. My 35 year old hot water heater finally had died.He looked to see what had caused the problem, then advised me it needed replacement. I agreed and he gave me a reasonable estimate cost on installing the new one that day. We looked for the outside water shut off valves to the house for three hours plus. Taylor poked the ground with his iron rod , dug the possibilities time & time again, walked the neighborhood looking to see where other boxes were placed, etc. I was astounded when he finally found the box buried a foot underground underneath a group of small trees that had frown over it in the 15 years since I had moved into the property !!!. Taylor stayed here until 10 pm that night taking out the old stone-filled heater, installing the new one, checking to see it was working properly, and cleaning up his work area in the hallway of the house before leaving. Taylor is one of the most conscientious craftsmen I have ever encountered and I consider myself lucky he responded to my call to your company.”

  • “I'm super impressed & happy with the service we received from your company. This level of service is rare nowadays. We discovered a broken water pipe under out house at 11pm on a Friday. We cut the water off to the house and went online to search for a plumbing company. We found Mr. Rooter and we left a message of our problem on your Facebook page. At 8am the phone rang with your rep and by 9am a technician arrived at the house. Even at this point I was a bit astonished. Your tech Juan was outstanding. Courteous and a hard worker. He went under and found the problem and diligently worked until he fixed our pipe. He represents your company in an outstanding way. Our water was back on before noon. Honestly, I'm not used to such good service. I recommend Mr. Rooter wholeheartedly.”
