I had the pipes replaced, the hot water heater replaced, and the furnace replaced by them. From start to finish, it was a horrible job. Very overpriced.

Their tech who came to clean my working, running furnace decided it was unsafe and shut it down, actually cutting wires to disable it. He performed NO tests beforehand. DTE came out and did a proper professional assessment, found it to be safe and promptly turned it back on (of course that was after they had to fix the damage that Burton's did.) Burton's was too lazy to do the work needed and preferred to give me an estimate for $3300 to replace my so-called "dangerous" furnace. First class BS artists.

I have now had two terrible experiences with incompetent workers at Burton and Sons. First a plumber who did bother to check the main drain for a clog, and wanted to charge a lot more to go through roof to find the source of our issues. Second furnace repair, was not sure what was wrong with it except maybe a loose wire. Worked for half a day before we had to call for another service. They then refused to send someone to our house.

Ripoff? Yes. Competent plumbers? Sure. Overpriced? Absolutely! My wife called these guys to checkout our toilet, which was sluggish and not flushing properly. They were here less than five minutes. The cost? $150. Apparently the problem was a bit of calcium buildup in the jets that pushed the water through. One look told them that. So instead of explaining the problem to my wife (so i could easily fix the problem when i got home) and charging a nominal fee for coming out, they scrape out the hole in the toilet for a minute or so and drop us a bill for $150. Did they use any specialized plumbing tool? Nope. They asked my wife to find them a coat hanger. So they used no tools, our coat hanger, five minutes, and a big bill. Never going back. I'm a small business owner and my business philosophy is to never ... Repeat ... Never ... make "one big killing" on a customer. I prefer to operate transparently and ethically so I can create a customer for life. Shame.

This company charged as $415 to repair a burst hot water line in January 2011. About a week later, their repair failed and the line began leaking again. They cut off a portion of the pipe and capped it to stop the leak and said they would look for a fitting to reconnect the line. When they finally came back in August, they said they wanted to start ripping siding off the side of our house, adding thousands in additional costs. They kept the money and we have no hot water in that sink.
Tips & Advices
The following tools and common household objects can be used to clean drains at home:
  • A plunger
  • A drain snake
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • Grease-fighting dish soap
Homeowners can mix boiling water with any of the last three products to break up grease and grime.
The main ingredients in clog removal liquid products are sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite. According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, both break down into relatively harmless components when it comes into contact with water or soil. However, both substances cause mild irritation to skin and internal tissues.
Also known as a drain auger, a drain snake is a coiled device around ¼-inch thick. To use a drain snake, put the end into the entrance of the drain. Turn the handle to force the snake deeper, using extra pressure to force it through the bend in the pipe. Keep turning until the snake hits the clog, then either pull the snake and remove the obstruction or force it through. Once the snake is out of the drain, run the water on full blast for a few minutes to ensure the obstruction is completely removed.
Plungers don't damage residential pipes, but the force created by the act of plunging weakens the seal between the toilet and the floor.
Many plumbers, both local businesses and nationwide chains, offer emergency or same-day services.
