AAA Plumbing Repair Service
We discovered water heater leak late on a Friday night. Called AAA Saturday morning. Got an immediate, live-person, answer and set up for service on a holiday Monday morning. AAA arrived, as agreed-on, verified that the water heater needed to be replaced. We discussed options and he provided an agreed-on price. They obtained a very good quality A.O. Smith electric heater and returned to install, professionally. Old heater removal was done without making a mess. They provided good guidance on operation and warranty information. Within a few minutes after that, the hot water was flowing again. High recommendation for AAA Plumbing Service. Good value for professional service

They are nice when you talk to them and even when they over charge you for labor. ... They said it took them over 3 hours to put in new parking break cable. I read on line onlfor, a good machine can do that job in 30 min. An hour if he had never done one before.... I'll never go back...Why can't there be any honest auto repair shops...

At last, an automotive shop with a heart. Fast service, kind and knowledgeable staff, and great prices. Each time, they have delivered above expectations. At the risk of the secret getting out and having to share them with the greater Roanoke area, I still recommend them to everyone.

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
