My townhome was built in 1987 when apparently polybutylene pipes were thought to be the pipes of the future. (Revolutionary!) It was soon discovered that over time they would inevitably corrode from the inside and fail. The home inspector completely missed (or mislead me) about this issue, and when I moved in I had two bursts within eight months, one of which completely destroyed my laundry room and a bathroom ceiling. I knew I was dealing with a time bomb here, so I started going down the list of plumbers in the area. After several estimates, I grew increasingly frustrated. The prices were all over the place and many plumbers tried to scare me into paying for things I knew I didn't need and generally treated me like I was an idiot. Finally, fed up, I joined Angie's List and found Lester's Plumbing Service. I was impressed by the consistent "A" ratings and that they had won the Super Service Award for several years.

Lester himself showed up at exactly the time he said he would ( several other candidates had been late and one actually stood me up - twice). He stayed for quite a while because I had a lot of questions and explained what was absolutely necessary to solve my problem without trying to sell me services I obviously didn't need. He did point out that I did not have a pan under my water heater, which of course is asking for trouble. I had wanted someone to fix my dryer vent for a long time because it was faulty and causing the dryer to overheat. I assumed this was not the work of a plumber but Lester said he would fix that also. Though I had initially just intended to do the repipe, thinking that was all I could afford, I asked for an estimate including all these other jobs as well. I was dreading what it would be, but it was actually less than what most of the others wanted to just do the repipe and nothing else. I think this is one advantage of going with a locally owned family company.

On the appointed day, Lester and his son Brandon showed up with four other guys. I assumed that Lester, being a Master plumber with many years experience, would just leave a crew and go do a job that was more expensive, but he stayed throughout the entire two-day job, supervising and quality-checking as well as doing a lot of the work himself. I was impressed at how well all the guys worked together. They were very coordinated and efficient and I could tell they took pride in their work. In fact I later discovered they had done some extra things without charging me, such as repairing my sink drain basket and even repairing an old hole in the floor near my water heater. They also installed the main water shutoff, which had previously been in the crawlspace hidden under insulation, next to my water heater. I was expecting a terrible mess from the removal of the drywall, but they were meticulous about keeping things as clean as possible. When they left they even swept and vacuumed. There wasn't really much left for me to do.

All in all, what I had expected to be basically a nightmare turned out to be a painless experience that actually came in under budget. It has improved the value of my house and the workmanship exceeded my expectations. These folks excel at their craft and I would recommend them highly to friends and family. It will probably be a very long time before I need plumbing service again, but if and when I do I'm calling Lester.

I just pulled my son out of college to become a plumber after being charged $397.00 by Lesters Plumbing to fix a faulty kitchen facet handle, replace a toilet seat, and replace two toilet internals. I could have done these myself but after

Lester was at my house within 4 hours of my phone call...and I didn't even have an emergency! Absolutely professional, incredibly helpful and very fair pricing, even going so far as to offer suggestions and provide materials for my completing some of the work myself to save money. I will never use another plumber!

I did some work For Lester last week.. you can tell a lot about a man by his concern for his own company.... I will be using him for my next plumbing need. As a small business owner and in a service industry like him, I found Lester to be as focused on service and value with quality of results as I am...

Our experience With Lester's plumbing was a good one. They came out the same day we called. The technician was well dressed, very nice and worked quickly yet efficient. The cost was very reasonable too. We will recomend them to our friends

Called Lester's on a Thursday afternoon & had everything taken care of the next day. Brandon was very professional, well spoken, knowledgable & well groomed. Our leaky bathtub faucet is all fixed & our cat will be so mad! The price was

We had an object get flushed down our toilet, clogging it up. The first business we called, a national name, did not service our zip code even though they had a branch less than 5 miles from the home. The second could not get anyone out until the next day. You really cannot go without a toilet that long. I tried the next one, which was Lester's. They had a plumber out here within the same afternoon, took the time to call and let me know when he was on the way as well. When he arrived he went right to work, took care of the problem right away, made sure his work had solved the problem, cleaned up and even took the time to buff out the scratches the auger will always leave on a bowl. The price was the estimate I had been quoted and if, God forbid, we have any more plumbing issues, Lester's will be the first and only place we call.

As an owner of investment properties, I have dealt with many contractors. Lester and Brandon have been so great to work with, several times in the past 2 years. In each instance they could have diagnosed a much more serious problem but they took the conservative approach first, to see if the problem was corrected before doing more extensive/expensive measures. Customers appreciate this! Really appreciate the way they return calls timely.

Lester's Plumbing was hired for three separate projects. One project did not meet city code according to a Raleigh City Inspector. The second project although it met code, should have been done differently, according to Raleigh City Inspector. Third project was evaluated to have no problems when in fact there are major problems, as evaluated by a trusting plumber. All the work Lester's Plumbing had done at my has had to be redone by a reputable plumber.
Refused to correct or reimburse, despite the city inspectors report. When this plumber realized I was posting negative comments he wanted to "negotiate" my taking the negative comments off and then would consider a partial reimbursement.

Don't Trust this Plumber

The other day our garbage disposal completely froze up and started leaking. Like so many of us, I've had some bad experiences with contractors in the past. But the moment I called Lester...I knew I had found a good, honest person that was clearly an experienced and knowledegeable plumber. He told me he has nearly 28 yrs of experience and is a Master Plumber. He and is son Brandon arrived percisely on time and had me up and running with a new unit within 45 minutes. I didn't have to take a half day off and wait around - they gave me an exact time and stuck to it. The price on the phone was the price of the job. No Surprises! (And very reasonable!)

Lester's also does those tankless water heater, well pump, water treatment, and drain cleaning. I don't know what sort of plumbing service I may need in the future, but I DO know who I'll call...Lester's!

I called Lester's Plumbing and they were able to be here within 30 minutes. Once they were here, Lester was able to determine and fix the problem immediately. His bill was reasonable as well. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. He has over 20 years experience and guarantees his work. I would highly recommend his company to anyone.
