“I called Bert told him it was emergency and with in the hour he was there”
I own a Chicago Style Bungalow and I’m a 1st time home owner who knows nothing about plumbing. Last week I started to have water come from the side of my basement toilet. The plumber that I had come before Bert said that it was a seal problem in the toilet and thats why the water was coming from the side. That plumber charged me $200 to “fix” the seal only to find out that wasn’t the issue. Turns out that after my family and I would use the shower/toilet on the 2nd floor bathroom thats when the water would begin to leak on the side of the basement toilet as well as come up from the basement shower. I woke up to a awful sewage odor coming from my basement. I went to check and found sewage coming from the shower and toilet. I called 6 different places none which could come on that day because they were busy. When I would describe what was happening to my toilet and shower each said that there was a clog somewhere and that the pipes needed to be rodded out with a snake. Got Quotes ranging from $250-$500. Rotor rooter wanted $500 an hour. Prices were crazy!!! To top it off my wife is pregnant and I didn’t want her to have to deal with that smell and that day happen to be our baby shower.I called Bert told him it was emergency and with in the hour he was there. Bert sent a camera down and found the blockage. Turns out it was the “disposable” baby wipes that my family and I just started to use for the past 3 months. He sent a rod down and cleared everything out. Once everything was done he took time to explain everything and make me understand the pipe line I have in my house. I also had him come out to clean my grease trap the following week. He cleaned my drain area for my laundry room too.
1. Bert was the only plumber that came out when I had an emergency.
2. Bert took his time to unclog everything.
3. Bert explained everything so simple that a child could understand.
4. His price included camera service which some places charge extra.
5. Because it was a EMERGENCY I had to pay emergency prices. Felt it was higher then what it should have been. Thats why I gave him 4/5 stars. Again, if its a emergency you going to pay emergency prices. He will drop what ever job he’s doing and go help you out.
Would I use him again???
Most definitely!!! I plan on using him to do my yearly maintenance. I highly recommend him.
Just make sure you discuss price before he does the work.
“He was right on schedule and was a true professional”
Bert came out the same day I called to give me an estimate. He was right on schedule and was a true professional. Finished clearing the clogged bathtub very quickly. He asked me if I had any questions and even cleaned up a bit before leaving. Would recommend!
“We actually saved $1,000’s of dollars”
After we got a quote from another company that was telling us that it might cost $1,000’s in repairs, including a $450 camera inspection, we decided to get a second opinion. Bert charged us HUNDREDS less for a camera inspection and discovered that our main line was actually just fine, and that there was something / a possible root coming into the city’s main past our property line under the street. We actually saved $1,000’s of dollars just by having Bert come and take a look. AND he even changed out our toilet wax seal & rusted bolts for no extra charge. Bert is an honest straight up guy, not trying to sell you on big repairs. He explained that it might cost a lot if we had to rip up the floor to replace a broken sewer pipe, because we have a crawlspace, but that wasn’t the case thankfully. Thanks Bert, Highly recommended!
“His work is professional…he’s reliable and honest.”
I had a big problem in my basement water over flowing all over the basement. A big issue that needed to be solved as soon as possible. Thanks to All rooter and plumbing the problem was fixed. I have to say the plumber did a great job his work is professional noticed he had the right equipment he’s reliable and honest. Im glad i called All rooter and plumbing
“He was very polite in answering all questions.”
Bert is professional and efficient. Called at 3 am with a busted pipe. He arrived on point as he said he would. He was very polite in answering all questions. He was able to resolve my problems in a timely manner. I know I saved time and money by calling Bert. I am very happy with his service. I would definitely recommend and continue using All Rooter-Plumbing! Another satisfied customer!
“Very thorough and explained the whole process of everything”
Called and Bert came out to my house within 20 minutes. Had the sewer main rodded and also got quotes for a couple of other things we wanted to get fixed. Bert’s quotes were very reasonable and he was very thorough and explained the whole process of everything. Highly recommended.
“His assessment was accurate”
I called and Bert came out to my home the next day. I had a couple of minor jobs and one major job to have done. His assessment was accurate. He explained everything to me and took care of the problem in a reasonable time. I recommend him highly 🙂
“Same day, did an excellent job”
Bert was there same day, did an excellent job, cleared our sewer out and charged us a fair price. Highly recommend!
“He took care of it in less than an hour”
I live in Oak Park and searched Yelp for a plumber to rod out my sewer line because I had gotten water during the storm. Bert wasn’t far and was able to come out the same day to inspect the line and catch basin. My catch basin didn’t need cleaning but my line did need rodding. He took care of it in less than an hour. No worries about being taken advantage of. Bert was very honest and professional.
“Professional, thorough, and reasonably priced”
I had some sewage odor issues at my business for a while. I had other plumbers take a look at it and couldn’t diagnose it. Bert came last minute and was able to detect the problem and fix it quickly. He was professional, thorough, and reasonably priced. I would recommend him to anyone.
“His advice will likely save me unnecessary expenses in the future as well”
I arrived home from work late this evening after a day of heavy rains and my sewer line was blocked. I called All Rooter & Plumbing and Bert told me he could either come out that night or the following morning. The after hours call would be a bit more but worth it for me to not have to miss work tomorrow morning.
Bert arrived about an hour later…around 10pm…and got right to work. He rodded the sewer line several times with various cutters and blades. When the blockage wasn’t fully cleared he put his camera in the line and identified what he thinks is a city issue which would require a visit from their inspector. He then rodded again to restore maximum sewage flow.
At nearly midnight, after 2 hours of work, I happily paid Bert a very reasonable fee for his expert work. After numerous prior cleanings and repairs this is the first time a contractor has identified this as a city issue. Bert’s initial fee was well worth it and his advice will likely save me unnecessary expenses in the future as well.
“Fair price and quality work, we got both with All Rooter & Plumbing”
When we called All Rooter & Plumbing Sewer Drain we had a single job in mind. We had several estimates on the job already and were looking for a fair price and quality work, we got both with All Rooter & Plumbing. Plumber Bert came out assessed the job and gave us a fair price. Bert was very professional and efficient and did the job just as he described before he began the work. The plumbing work was quality work completed in a timely fashion…problem solved. THANK YOU Plumber Bert!!!
“Very proffesional. I am very happy with the work they did.”
Months ago I started my project to remodel my kitchen. After taking down the walls we noticed that we had several problems with the drain. We called Bert first because of the high recommendations on Yelp. Bert was very attentive. He explained the work in detail. Bert and his assistant were very professional. I am very happy with the work they did.
Hace meses empecé mi proyecto de remodelar mi cocina. Después de tirar las paredes nos percatamos que teníamos varios problemas con el desagüe. Llamamos a Bert primero por las altas recomendaciones en Yelp. Bert fue bastante atento. Me explicó el trabajó con detalle. Bert y se ayudante fueron muy profesionales quede muy contento con el trabajo que realizó.
“Stayed late to finish his work meanwhile keeping things clean”
Shopping around for a plumber was frustrating as I had a couple of no call backs and a no show. I was so thankful when I was recommended to Bert and was happy to see everyone’s comments on yelp. He was easy to talk to, listens and was very professional in getting my plumbing problems done affordably and most importantly CORRECTLY, as he had to fix plumbing issues from a previous owner in my newer property. He worked hard to get my plumbing problems resolved quickly and even stayed late to finish his work meanwhile keeping things clean! I have since referred and recommended him to a few friends in need. I would definitely use him again!
“I was worried because of how big the job was…”
When I bought my house 3 years ago I needed a good plumber because of a water main leak. Being disappointed by all my plumbers I tried Craigslist and found Bert. He came out and underbid my usual guy by almost over 15%. I was worried because of how big the job was. But Bert seemed very knowledgeable. They did everything they said and on schedule. The water main ran under the sidewalk and he was even able to get the cement work done. Now I use him at all my buildings. I have used him at least 10 times since.
He was at one of my buildings today to rod the line and as usual; fast, great work and under budget. and he always does a great cleanup.
Thank you To Bert and the crew at ALL.
“I was worried because of how big the job was…”
Very professional and timely. Had them out to my condo in an 11 unit building for backed up drain lines. Was able to camera various lines and find the source of the clog. Would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them!
“My main sewer line was clogged and filled with grease…”
I am very cautious when it come to plumbers. However, Bert is the best!!! My main sewer line was clogged and filled with grease, Bert cleared the clog and cleaned & removed all that nasty grease from my main sewer line!!! I can say that i will be keeping all rooter & plumbing and Bert in my contacts!!! Thanks so much Bert!!!
“Customer Service was top notch”
Bert came out very quickly and cleared my grease trap in my basement. He also took the time to answer all questions I had, and he showed me via a camera what state my line going to city. He was flexible with his pricing and his customer service was top notch. I already recommended him to two friends of mine. P.S. I called my Plumbers from this site and they told me that they don’t service my area even though there advertising says service the greater Chicago area this also what makes him stand out because he services the south side as well.
