Many thanks SPH pluming of Somerville for sending out your finest plumbing technician. The Somerville plumber done a great job replacing our main sewer pipe. The plumber arrived on time and was polite and respectfull of our home. My wife said that your plumber even made sure to keep the door closed so my cat can't get out. Hey look, we know that plumbing is an unhealty job, but you guys seem to care and that's why I am writing you this note. We appreciate everything you've done for us.Thank you SPH plumbing for doing such a great job. My grandparents who live in Somerville as well, would like to upgrade their heating system. Perhaps you can help them with their heating needs also. Thank you SPH/Somerville plumber.
I found the company in February ?? right after my circa 1963 copper pipes finally gave out in the form of a hot-water-line slab leak. Having consulted with my insurance claims adjuster, my online home repair group and my dad, I decided to reroute both lines through the attic from intake through to the fixtures.
The first few plumbing companies I called wanted to charge me as much as $250 just to visit and tell me how many thousands of dollars it would then cost to get the job done. And I often had to call the plumbing companies multiple times, practically begging them to let me give them my business.
Then I turned to the Angies List, where I found Shalin-Somerville plumber and a couple of other reputable firms. Andrew Shalin, owner of Shalin plumbing, responded to my e-mail request for an estimate almost immediately. He and his team came out the very next day, at no cost, to give me an estimate.
Not only was the team prompt (early actually! Tip ?? don??t wait until the last minute to change out of your pajamas!), but they were completely professional. No dirty jokes like I had to endure with the other firms who visited; as a single woman I felt completely safe having Andrew and his crew in my home.
The detailed, written estimate (no wild verbal guesses) came in lower than other firms and included drywall repair and new fixtures in my bathrooms and a new shut-off in my garage. Sweet!!
Once I hired Shalin, the professionalism didn??t wane. Again, the crew showed up 30 minutes early on starting day for this immense job. When I came back 48 hours later, my house had all new plumbing. Andrew personally went through the entire house to make sure his plumbing crew and the drywall subcontractor had completed the job as promised. Andrew also asked if the crew had left my house clean ?? the answer was yes; in fact, my garage was better organized than it was when they started! And the job cost exactly what Shalin said it would before they were hired.
My house now has completely modern plumbing. Every time I turn on my new faucets it??s like being in a new house. It??s been a couple of months since the work was done and it??s completely solid ?? no problems at all.
Hats off to Shalin Plumbing!!

It was Father's Day when we discovered a leak in the pipes connecting our hot water heater in our Somerville home. We were distraught. The last time we needed a plumber we went with the 1st big ad in the yellow pages. What a mistake that was! They ripped us off big time. This time we made few phone calls to friends and one of the suggested Shalin Plumbing. We were skeptical about using a small name company, but we had an excellent recommendation from a friend. So we called and were told a plumber would be out within 2 hours. Our Somerville plumber arrived in a timely manor and assessed our problem. We were surprised and relieved at the price quote he gave us. He completed the work for a fair price and we enjoyed the rest of the day. Shalin, the Somerville plumber did a great job for us and we would recommend them to any one.
Two days ago, I opened the cabinet under my sink to find that the drain had separated and faucet was leaking! To get a plumber, I typed local search on my laptop. Shalin was the first plumber to answer the phone. Upon arrival to my Somerville home Plumber Bob was friendly and professional and put me at ease immediately. I told him the problem, and he told me the cost upfront. Than plumber Bob went to work on sink drain and faucet. Because he was so prompt and professional, I also asked him about fixing a leaking valve under the sink in our 1/2 bath. He gave me extra discount on additional repairs. Within two hours all of my plumbing problems were fixed.
Misfortune mishap and a severely damaged plumbing lead to no water until the problem was fixed. I called Shalin plumber of Somerville and had a plumber at my house within the hour. Matt was there in a flash, examined the problem which would not had been an easy task for a do-yourself plumbing type job. Plumber had the right part on him and that saved me time. My plumbing problem was fixed and completed after an hour and a half and may I add he did a very fine job. First time using Somerville plumber but now I would call them from now on. Very fair priced, professional attitude, and great workmanship. I will tell all my friends. Thanks Shalin - Somerville Plumber.
I had to call a plumber due to my somewhat new water heater leaking all over our basement. I called the original plumber (the one who installed the water heater) and was told they were too busy to come out that day, but to turn off the hot water, go to home depot and buy a new water heater and they would be out the following day (are you kidding me?). I then did a local search and found Somerville plumber-Shalin. Plumber arrived within the hour. After assessing the issue, Andy told me the good and the bad and was able to fix the old plumber's mistake without costing me thousands of dollars!!! Shalin will now be our plumber of choice. I cannot tell you how wonderful the staff was and how grateful I am. Don't be fooled or given the run-around by other plumbers in Somerville... call Shalin and have it fixed RIGHT the first time!
