Tub faucet fix & caulking

I hired Jason to help with a tub faucet fix and to re-caulk the tub. He was extremely fast to respond to messages before and after the service call. As I was unable to meet him him in person, he sent photos of before, during, and after the repair which was pretty awesome. The main repair (tub faucet) was well done. The caulking however, was not as ‘clean cut’ as I would have preferred. However the overall experience was pretty good. I’d hire him again.

Thanks for feedback , not to make an excuse for the caulking around the tub , the gap between the tub and edge of the lower part of the tiles was very large , so alot of silicon had to be used , by chance if the silicon shrunk or a gap opened i can always pass by to correct it .

Leaky shower, sink faucet, and spout with diverter repair work

I found out about Budget Rooter from HomeStars based on the consistently great reviews and ratings published.

Jason did an excellent job of fixing several issues in both the guest bathroom and the ensuite. The issues fixed were two dripping showers, a dripping sink faucet, and replacing a spout with diverter which was stuck and unusable. The quality of work done was professional and the price was reasonable.

I have called another plumber in the past beforehand which I've use many times to try to resolve these issues and they were unable to finish the job as they didn't have the required parts readily available. They were also unable to replace the spout with diverter as they claimed that the underlying copper pipe needed to be cut off first and a replacement welded in which involved breaking off a section of drywall and tile to carry out. After a couple of follow-up attempts to obtain an estimate with no call-backs, I decided to try someone else and I'm happy that I did. Ultimately it turned out that replacing the spout with diverter in my case didn't involve having to cut off the existing copper pipe or breaking off a section of drywall and tile which was a huge relief!

Bottom line, Jason is an honest plumber and solved all of my problems with ease. I would definitely use his services again for future work.

Plumbing rework due to sewage backup

We worked with Jason over the span of a month on a variety of projects (new drain in furnace room, floor drain repair, bathroom full plumbing redo). It had been a frustrating process to find a solution for sewer bugs we were getting in our basement floor drain, and other plumbers we contacted were not interested/ complicating things or overcharging. Jason worked with us over months of communication, until we hired him for the job once we felt comfortable with what we wanted to tackle. He was very patient, kind, communicative, budget cautious and most importantly very accommodating in understanding our needs (causing the least amount of damage/ additional repair work). His ability to be resourceful and explore solutions to meet our needs was greatly appreciated and the quality of work was extremely clean, well done and top quality. We look forward to hiring Jason again for future renovation projects.

Fixed terrible kitchen drain clog / replaced sink drain basket

I had a terrible kitchen sink/drain clog that required me to bring dishes and wash them in the laundry room. It was not pleasant.

I tried Drano, removal of P Trap (which was clear) and my Ryobi auger with 25 ft. cable and nothing worked.

Called Jason a few days later and got a quick response from him with an estimate, which I found to be competitive.

Also called other plumbers and some of them made it look like a really tough and expensive job.

Jason was eventually able to clear the clog with a bigger auger/machine and also replaced my leaky sink drain on one side with a Kindred set.

Everything works super now thanks to Jason. He is courteous, polite and friendly. Definitely won't hesitate to recommend him to friends in the GTA who may encounter future plumbing issues.

Bathtub faucet leak

Our bathtub faucet was leaking and made rattling noises. We looked at Homestars for a plumber with excellent reviews. We called Jason and he came over promptly. He quickly replaced the cartridge and gave us advice on how to help make it last longer. He was very friendly and accommodating and obviously took pride in his work. He also charged a very reasonable rate. We will definitely call on him again not just for future plumbing problems but other home repairs as well. He definitely deserves his great reviews. Highly recommended.

Shower faucet repair

Great service. My shower faucet start making strong noises, we stoped using it as some years ago we had a problem with the same faucet and had to close the water on all house until was fixed so we did not want to get into the same problem again. I was looking on HomeStars for a plumber with good reviews, I prefer to deal with small , owner operated businesses. I found Budget Rooter with great reviews and I called Jason. I'm glad I did, Jason found time and came to fix the problem on a Sunday !. He did a great job, now my shower faucet works better than I ever remember. We already talked and Jason is going to do a bigger project very soon.I'm pretty sure will be using Budget Rooter whenever I need any plumbing done.

A Stubborn Clog

Jason was recommended by a fellow plumber, who had no luck unclogging a stubborn fat berg lodged in my kitchen sink drain pipe. Jason came the next day, at the appointed time, and made short work of it …without a big fuss. He knows what he’s doing and has the requisite experience. There was no attempt on his part to make the job any more difficult seeming than it was and he made sure nothing leaked before he left.
Jason is highly recommended, definitely my tradesman of first choice.

Prompt and honest service

Jason reached out to us offering to help winterize our hose bib and gave an estimate based on some photos we provided. He came out the next day and actually gave us two options on how to solve the problem. A $50 one and a $300-500 one. He didn't push for the more expensive option and took the time to explain everything related to getting our hose bib ready for the winter.

Will certainly be contacting Jason for any other plumbing needs for our house.

Faucet replacement

Requested a plumber on homestars and Jason was the first to respond. He arrived on time and performed the work as agreed. He went even further to recommend I replace some other parts that had a minor issue. He triple checked the the faucet and assemble.

I would recommend Budget Rooter to anyone that needs some work done.

Thank you Jason.
