  • Minor Charges

Their logo says that they are always on time, but they got here 2 hours after the time set. They charge a lot for minor things. He did not clean anything after finishing the work. He broke a ceiling plastic panel in my basement and since I cancelled future services he only offered $10 to replace it. I also found something bad with the bathroom faucet after he was working there, but he insisted he... Read more

Their website states that they are 24 hour plumbers but when we had an emergency Saturday evening, they said they could not come until Monday morning. They said that they were booked up until then. How are you booked when you only come for emergencies and it's 24 hours. They could have come at midnight for all we cared. We just needed someone as soon as possible. But I guess they had an...

I am extremely livid with Benjamin Franklin and how they are constantly overcharging customers. My brother is a veteran who has been using Benjamin Franklin for over 7 year and the amount of money they over charged him in those seven (7) years is very astounding. I came here from New York after a loss of job and a week here my brother's home had a leak so he asked me to contact Benjamin Franklin... Read more

Plumber/technician was prompt and work was good. Bill was $796.40 including $107.40 for Home Protection Club. The actual cost for work done therefore was $689.00. The plumber was here 3 hrs. so the bill amounts to $229.67 per hour!!! No listing for parts or materials. I paid the bill including the "Club" but later discussed with my wife and she was outraged by the amount of the bill for three... Read more

  • Faucet Installation
  • 21

BF Plummer - Installed a Moen faucet, had to come back twice. Still the faucet is not working properly. The worst is the garbage disposal they installed in March 2013, it fell off water mess everywhere. When I called they were not able to guarantee the labor because it was over a year. Brand new disposal, not installed properly and in less than 15 months, to have it fall off, is unacceptable.... Read more

The charge for the service call was $59.00. This sounded good so I made a reservation. Two men showed up and replaced the fill valve and flopper and the supply tube. The total charge was $404.00 which included the $59.00 service call. I was given a senior citizen discount of 10% and the final charge was $363.00. They were here a little over an hour and did not spend all that time working on... Read more

My water heater started leaking several days ago, I am a young girl lives alone (my parents are travelling). So, I called Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, a man said he will send a person to come and check. The telephone men did not tell me the cost or anything about emergency cost. I mentioned a coupon on their website about free service when calling, he told me I can use it. When the plumber came,... Read more

I have never been so taken advantage of!! First I was tx thT there was NO charge to come out for an estimate by the phone rep. I was clear that I did NOT want to pay just to be told how much it would cost me for a repair!! That's just plain ***. Then the plumber ( Kelly S ) told me within 90 seconds that my water softener was basically "junk" from Lowes and aas only meant to las a few years. Then... Read more
