"I didn't pull a permit for your plumbing because I knew it would never pass inspection" - Phil Black, Black's Plumbing. I sent an email to Phil asking why he didn't pull any plumbing or gas permits for work he was doing in our home and this (above) was his response. He didn't comment specifically on the gas permit, but nonetheless, I think it's a good example of the level of service and professionalism his company offers. In short, my dealings with Black's Plumbing has been the worst experience I've ever had with any company, bar none. So I hope my review keeps you from getting into a similar situation. If you'd like to read more - please do. We originally parted ways with Black's (Phil Black) when he repeatedly failed to show up to complete his work. But the big surprise came when we asked a couple different plumbers to quote what it would cost to complete Phil's work. Independently, they said the work couldn't be completed, because it was done incorrectly. Then both plumbers asked the exact same questions, 1. Did this guy (Phil, Black's Plumbing) pull any permits for his work? 2. Are you sure he was a real plumber? - I guess that says it all. None of the work was up to code and the majority of it had to be re-done. Among the major problems: 1. A gas line they moved had several slow/small leaks in it - something that was only discovered when we pulled a permit and had the proper testing done. 2. They used undersized drainage pipe and tied them incorrectly into existing lines. The plumber who fixed us up explained to me best. "The first time you did a load of wash and it hit the rinse cycle - or had multiple fixtures draining at the same time, it would have overflowed everywhere." It scares me to think that I ever trusted Black's Plumbing, but we were referred to them through our insurance company and their preferred restoration vendor following a sewage backup. The irony is not lost on me that their shoddy workmanship could have caused a worse disaster (i.e. flooding/another backup or blowing up our home).

Phil was contracted by a property management company to work on my condo.
less than $1,000
It's almost impossible to describe how incredibly professional Phil was. He arrived on time, evaluated the situation carefully, and went to work, finishing the project quickly, with attention to all the details. Highly recommend!

These guys just did a complete change out of all water lines in my 2 story walkout. I got rid of all of the Grey Poly B junk and installed new Pex lines. I asked a lot of questions of a lot of plumbers and chose this company. On a job of this size I was worried about the job dragging on but they did everything on schedule and did everything they said they would do even re-plumbing for a future water softener with dedicated hard water to hose bibs and kitchen faucet at no extra charge. I had a few follow up items and they were there the next day. I expect a lot and Phil, Mike, Al, and Josh really impressed me with their competence and professionalism.
