Customer Reviews

"This company deserves 10 stars. We had clogged drains and our toilets were backing up. We called and they came out the same day. Very professional and polite. Great Job! Highly recommend Budget Rooter to anyone needing a plumbing company. Love working with local hometown businesses." -  Sheila S.

"This company was extremely professional and helpful, and I will go back to them every time. I had to move out of state and rent out my home as I can't afford two mortgages. There was a plumbing issue, and another company was charging $60 just to come out and see what the problem was, not including the amount to fix the issue. Budget Rooter came out for a free estimate, and was extremely affordable. They were able to come out for a non-emergent issue within 2 days, and kept me informed every step of the way. They now have a repeat customer if I have plumbing issues again." - Steven T.

"Fast and professional! I called on a Thursday evening and they asked me what time I'd be available for the estimator to come out and we quickly scheduled a time before 2 PM the FOLLOWING DAY! They called me at 7:30 AM and told me the estimator was on his way...in 30 minutes he was here and very helpful! He found out what was wrong with my toilet, gave me an estimate and when I agreed to the price he began working on it. My toilet is fixed for a great price and if I need a plumber again, I'll call Budget Rooter!!! I got my issued fixed within 24 hours, that rocks! Thanks guys!" - Caitlin Y.
