We called 8 different plumbers when we needed someone 'now', but only Pete Black Plumbing answered their phone right away - no leaving messages. They were at the house within the hour. Justin and Greg did a great job and took care of everything! Thank you so much!

I am very impressed with the service I received from Justin and Greg at Pete Black Plumbing. I had a garbage disposal issue yesterday and they came out within an hour and stayed until 7 pm on a Friday night fixing my problem. Both guys were very professional and very nice and polite. I highly recommend this company.

Called these guys up for a leaking kitchen faucet. The person I spoke with on the phone was knowledgeable and polite. They had someone out the next day! Great experience.

These guys are amazing. I had a leak and decided to pull the trigger and replace all of our old galvanized plumbing. They came out the evening that I called with the leak, and called me back within an hour that evening with a price for what I needed done. Upon hearing their price, I instantly told them to come do the job. They were out the next day, and had everything upgraded and replaced. I honestly haven't had service like that in a very long time. Highly recommend these folks.

I was very happy with the service I received from the guys at Pete Black Plumbing. It's my understanding that it is under new management and after reading some old reviews I can say the difference shows. Greg and his crew were very professional and prompt with their service. They sent two men that had the job done in a fraction of the time I had expected. The cost was very reasonable. In the past I have had issues getting an appointment with other companies in a reasonable time frame (without paying the dreaded emergency rate) not so with Pete Black. They fit me into their schedule quickly and did the job asked of them quickly as well, without breaking my wallet. They will be the first call I make for any future plumbing needs.

Justin and Greg (Pete Black Plumbing) have worked on many of my homes. They are always professional and explain the work completely, in laymen's terms.

I recommend Pete Black Plumbing to everyone. They were very professional and got the job done in a timely matter. There prices were very reasonable to. My hose faucet broke and there was water every where in my basement. They fixed it and even cleaned up the mess. Again I recommend this company. ..

The worst experience and service I have ever had in my 50+ years of life. Pete himself looked at my drinking water system. He did not do much of anything but charged me $241.00 to tell me he was unable to help me. Then he proceeded to tell me that I needed to purchase one of his $4,500.00 Water Systems. Oh yah, forgot to mention the $100.00 credit he would give me to purchase this system. PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND NEVER USE THIS COMPANY. They are crooks and cheats.
Tips & Advices
  • Are you licensed and registered?
  • Are you insured and bonded?
  • How many years have you been in business?
  • What, if any, professional associations do you belong to?
  • May I have a list of references?
  • Do you offer a written warranty for your work?
  • Will I need a permit for this work?
It is important to have a written warranty for any work or repairs done to the plumbing in your house, especially if it is a major repair. Look for a professional  who is willing to  stand by his or her work.
Before you hire a plumber, contact their past customers if you're able to. These people can be a wealth of information if you ask them the right questions. Pose the following queries to these former patrons when you get the chance:
  • Were you pleased with the work done?
  • Was the project completed on time?
  • Did the plumber give you a written warranty and guarantee his or her work?
  • Were there any unexpected costs that arose?
  • Would you hire this plumber again? If not, why?
A permit provides added assurance that the work is done correctly. Having this in place means an inspector will check the work your contractor or plumber does to ensure he or she did the job correctly. If you plan on putting your house or commercial building on the market, a real estate agent and prospective buyers will want to check any large work you did to make sure it was done properly.
A trustworthy plumber will have both commercial liability insurance as well as be bonded. The insurance and the bond protects the plumber from paying for any damages made to your house out of pocket. Having professionals that carry both of these policies can protect all of you from any mishaps that could occur while they work on your building.
