Review of RA Nichols Plumbing & Heating llc

RA Nichols suppose to install new gas pipe to second floor stove. I was told to get my contractor to take down some cabinet and the exhaust fan in this kitchen. Last Thursday they were in the house for the job and I was not on site. In the afternoon, they called me ask for payment. I told that I will be back the next day and can pay them then. But they insisted that they need to get payment from me that same day that the job is finished, so I paid by my credit card, with the understanding that the job is finished. When I get back to check, I realized the job is not finished but I did not realize on how much they left undone as I did not get up to the attic to check. Since then, I have called several to ask them to come and finish the job. First they told me that they will come and check and finished the job today (Wed). Tuesday afternoon I got a call saying that they are not coming. I asked why and they said they will call me back and of course no call came back. This morning I went to the property to wait in case someone comes and called to ask again. They simple told me that no one will come today. As I thought that they only missed the part of the job near the gas meter in the basement, I asked my contractor to come and put the cabinet and exhaust fan back. I asked him to check in the attic to see how the pipe was laid and he took a picture for me—the pipe is simply open in the attic, no where near the kitchen and the stove! Finally I realized that they just did less than half of the job! I called they again and this time got the owner on the phone. The truth is that they are short handed and they did not finished job. And they can’t do it this week and I have to wait until next week. I asked about the cabinet and exhaust fan I took down and put back—-what I suppose to do? Take them down again? The answer I got is that I do not have to do it. Then what on earth they asked me to do this before? It cost me time and money. So I am patiently waiting for next week and only hope that they can finish the job.


Quick Service and Professional




Review of RA Nichols Plumbing & Heating llc

My heating system is a bit older and a hydronic panel broke. I called for emergency service and they came quickly to help resolve the problem. They ordered additional parts which were also installed a few days after my issues. Spoke with the technician who was professional and knowledgeable. The owner listened to my needs, explained the situation and followed up with a plan. I feel my that I have a sense of safety and security with this company; knowing issues will be addressed in a timely, professional manner. Highly recommend this company.

*IF DIG PROCEEDS EMERGENCY MARK OUT FOR ENTIRE PROPERTY Tech attempted to snake the line however snake fed into the line full length of 100 feet but blockage was not cleared. After attempting to snake the line without success and Camera inspection with location was attempted however camera would not surpass approximately 5 feet into the pipe. Hydrojetting was attempted as well but had the same results as the camera. After discussing with customer he will discuss with wife about digging for clean out in the driveway. He said he will call back this weekend to let up know to start the process for Monday. If he goes forward with the dig, we will credit the charge of jetting towards the dig.

Customer showed tech to master bathroom and explained that an inspector had pointed something out underneath the sink. Tech found that it was a chrome trap , with duct tape around the rotted out parts of the trap. Customer was informed that it needed to be replaced as well as recommending a new pop-up be installed. Customer authorized repairs to be made, tech installed new pop-up as well as a new PVC trap and tested for leaks and function ability on repairs made. Once work was complete and sink was tested tech found that there was a leak coming from both the hot as well as the cold supply lines. Tech attempted to shut off the angle stops and had difficulty turning the valves which started to drip from the stems. Tech went downstairs to find the Watermain to the house and attempted to close the gate Valve on the street side of the meter, However was unsuccessful on turning the water off.

Tech snaked out tub drain removing hair and grease. Line has sufficient flow, however leaking tub spout blocks water partially from draining allowing slight pooling near tub drain when shower is in use. Tech is to return tomorrow to replace the tub downspout, as well as the grid strainer for the drain, and possibly the shower head.

Tech arrived and was shown to downstairs bathroom by customer. She explained that with her new vanity that Lowes had sold her with installation, was holding water between the base of the sink and the ring for the pop up. Tech explained to customer that after looking at it, the diameter for the pop-up was too big and would not allow it to sit low enough on the sink allowing all water to drain out. Customer explained that she wouldContact Lowe’s and see if they would come and fix the problem prior to having our RA Nichols come back and install a new pop up as well as a new lav faucet that includes a trip lever. Customer had also requested tech install a new customer supplied Lav sink faucet for the upstairs common bathroom. Tech discussed pricing and procedure and was given authorization to complete the work. New faucet was installed and tested there are currently no leaks or malfunctions at this time.
