Watch out! Helpful at first glance, but way overpriced!
We had several plumbing problems pop up at once. One example was the need for a new water heater. Shafer gave us an estimate for a surprising $1200 for replacement. I thought that it was pricier than expected, but paid for the service. I just found out that my current home needs the very same work and my estimate is $624 from another plumbing service. Half the price of Shafer. Unfortunately we also had 2 toilets replaced by Shafer, who said at that time that the ones we had just installed were not put in correctly. For two replacement toilets the bill came to $1700! The plumber we just had the house inspected by said that they would need to repair the way the toilets were installed because they were done incorrectly. So now, Shafer charged a fortune and did not install brand new toilets correctly! I will write another review shortly - we had Shafer fix a leak under the house and the cost was insane - come to find out, the same house has another leak they did not find with the same remedy - we will see what the new estimate comes in at, and I will let you know. I will give you Shafers price and they new estimate amount. Avoid this company at all costs. Get second opinions and other estimates by honest companies. We have several rental houses, and Shafer will never get another call. Also, this work was done six months ago, we kept calling them for a bill so we could take care of the work, and we just got the bill this week! F- in every aspect. Quality of work, Price, Honesty, and Timeliness.
