I was impressed with Martin from the moment he entered our property. I felt his quote for our basement work was quite fair. And Express Rooter did an exceptional job excavating our basement and addressing our "not to code" drain issue. There was no evidence of any mess after the guys wrapped up for the day. As a bonus, they also stepped up and completed our city paperwork (for a the city rebate). No question, these guys are professional.
However, the work we had done at the front of the property did seem expensive. We were quoted $2499 and our neighbor, who had the same work done a month or two before, paid about $700 less. Perhaps the jobs weren't equivalent. But our situation was that we just wanted to get the work done...while the crew was on the premise (they were wrapping up the basement work).
I would definitely recommend Express Rooter again as they are above and beyond professional. But I would get multiple quotes for future projects and ask for additional information on the calculation of any supplier's quote (if it was significantly higher than comparable competition (e.g. another company offering a similar warranty on parts and labour). Just a slight caveat.
- Approximate cost of services:
- Any advice to offer fellow homeowners facing a similar project?
- Ask for details concerning the calculation of the quote to ensure value and quality workmanship are in line.
