We had a great experience with Jamal from Jim Dandy. We were stuck with a sewer soaked basement this past Labor Day weekend. We had been using another side sewer contractor but he couldn't be back for another week so we had to go with a big company and I was worried we were going to have to pay big money. I dug the hole myself since the other contractor had located the next break in our line. If you want to save some money on sewer work - dig your own hole. It gets quite disgusting, it's hard work, and you have to dig them a good hole. The hole should have at least one foot on either side of the pipe and extend one foot beyond the problem area of the pipe on each end. Jamal showed up when he said he would, was working within five minutes, and was nice as can be. He rooted and scoped the pipe showing us the bad spots ahead, made the repairs and left us with a bill for only $355. A paltry sum in the side sewer business. If you want to save money don't pay a plumber $150 an hour to dig a hole, but dig a good hole yourself. Be warned, anything deeper than 4' is dangerous without proper bracing. Jamal was great, go Jim Dandy.
All Ted and I can say is THANK YOU! You just never know how important your water heater is until your daughter comes to the kitchen wearing her snow jacket! Also, meeting a plumber with a great sense of humor was a plus! Great work boys!
Great plumbing company! I love using a local business instead of a national chain. Service is great! They came out right away, were very friendly and got the job done very quickly. I will definitely call them again.
Absolutely irresponsible, dishonest, and terrible. They wrecked the sewer lines for the clinic I work for--and it wasn't even the clinic that hired them, it was the landlord next door! We never had plumbing problems until the day Jim Dandy started working on the sewer lines between our clinic and the house next door. When the sewer backed up, Jim Dandy said they would fix it, but instead broke a pipe in our basement without asking or telling us, and then said it wasn't their fault and never responded to any of our calls! This was over a year ago. Don't trust the glowing reviews, unless you have a couple thousand dollars to throw away at the gamble.
I’ve used Jim Dandy as my Seattle plumber for years now and still call them whenever I have a plumbing emergency now that I live a little farther north. Very rarely do I need a plumbing contractor, but when I never hesitate to call Jim Dandy. I know they’ll do a great job, they won’t make a mess and most importantly, they’ll be friendly.
Awful Awful Awful!!! I contacted them half a year ago for a clogged toilet and next thing I know the entire first floor's flooded with waste. They refused to return and fix the issue without charging me again so I went with another company. They sent a guy who spent half an hour and discovered that the previous contractor had damaged part of our sewage pipes. We had to get a whole section of our pipe replaced. WTF people. On top of Jim Dandy's bill, we had to fork over an entire grand to FIX what they did. On top of everything, they totally refuse to take any responsibility for what happened or even the redact the stupid bill they sent us for their "repairs". How is this company in operation???
Beware – This company dumps raw sewage into the ballard locks, there is a video of them doing it on you tube. Goto yelp and read the honest reviews of this company there. They charge there customers disposal fees for legitimate safe disposal of their wastes and then pocket the money. Check the city records and you will find they have never ever paid the city for proper disposal of their wastes, just one of the many ways they cheat and lie to the public, Most of the reviews here are written by the owner using differnet email addresses. Good luck and buyer beware,
Great at repairing water heaters – Our Water Heater gave up the ghost earlier this week which made taking a shower a bad time. I noticed that the plumbing contractor I usually use whenever one of my kids flushes a toy down the toilet also fixes water heaters which made them an obvious choice to fix the issue. We had a contractor out to the house within a few hours (it wasn’t an emergency) and he was able to resolve the issue and give us wonderful warm water within an hour. Good job and thank you!
Perfect Plumbing contractors – Jim Dandy was contracted to install new plumbing into a modified bathroom that had been expanded and had a new shower, toilet and bath installed. While my husband was able to get pretty much everything together on his own, Jim Dandy’s plumbing contractors were that extra inch that was needed to complete the project. They were able to do everything we could not and they excelled at it. If you plan on remodeling, you should darn sure use these guys to help with new plumbing installation.
