Great business! Receptionist was very courteous and helpful. They were able to send someone out first thing the next morning (after a long weekend!) She gave me a quote over the phone and they charged me exactly what the quote was. The serviceman, Scottie, was prompt, very efficient and cleaned up when he was done! The service call was for a clogged bathtub drain. I am fairly new to the area, this was the first time I had to call a plumber, and, by the luck of the draw, I called Santa Cruz Plumbing, Inc, and will call them in the future next time I need a plumber!
I have been a Santa Cruz Plumbing customer for over a decade. Nothing but good experiences. Skilled plumbers, courteous/helpful office staff, timely responses (for both urgent and non-urgent issues). I can and do recommend them highly.
After unsatisfactory experience with two other companies in SCZ, I couldnl't be happier with the service and price from Santa Cruz. They have solved several unusual rerouting of old plumbing for me at very reasonable prices, and were very prompt to come out for an emergency in less than an hour during the week. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Prompt service and very very helpful. We had a water leakage on a weekend and didn't know what was causing the leakage. Called Jason and his team came and found the cause of the leakage and fixed it.Highly recommend Santa Cruz Plumbing Inc.
