Worth every single star and then some. Super responsive called in the morning and he was there in the afternoon. Got the job done in the same day and didn't try to find a bunch of other things that were wrong. My unit is at least one million years old so there was plenty of opportunity for that. Knew what he was doing and I felt that I received excellent service at a reasonable price. I'm thrilled to find someone like him!

Fred Smith's techs calmed all of my plumbing and heating concerns during our renovation. Everyone was very clean and respectful of our home. The toilets they installed work just great, and I'm sure we'll be keeping nice and toasty come winter.

A friend recommended Fred Smith to me and I'm so glad that he did. They had Dennis over to my house as quickly as possible and I just can't say enough good things about him. He was very knowledgeable and didn't mind answering my numerous questions. Everything works great now, without making a huge dent in my pocket. Great Service.

I'm not a licensed plumber, but I had to hire Fred Smith because the work required a shut-off in the whole building. Fred Smith came to look at the job. I needed a shutoff valve replaced. The prices were great.

I just wanted say how grateful I am that Fred Smith was able to fix my heating system. It is a big relief for my wife and I, considering our babies' room was without heat for most of last winter. There were at least three other companies that we had contacted to deal with the problem over the last year. They all suggested different things and none of them were able to solve the problem. Then fortunately a friend referred me to your company. Gary Stern was very professional and courteous. He sent over Dennis Dedian who was evidently a lot more knowledgeable and experienced than any of the other "specialists" who set foot in my apartment. He knew what needed to be done and did it. Once again hats off to Dennis and Fred Smith. I will recommend you to anyone and everyone who needs an outstanding and reliable plumbing and heating company.

Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated the professional and pleasant manner of the three men that came last week to do a very dirty and difficult repair on our pipes encased in cement. They worked hard and long to get things back to normal and were so very pleasant.
Please extend to them our thanks and that they represented your company well.

I would recommend these guys to anyone. Their employees are always on time and stay within budget. The business is very well organized and we appreciated their expertise. In addition to being speedy, everyone was very helpful, friendly, and neat. Just the sort of people you want working in your home.

Thank you, thank you, thank you- your wonderful guys, Nick Petro and Robert Lebron, rescued me...
I had total anxiety about the water valve in my bathroom which was causing a leak to the floor below.
Nick was so careful as he fixed "the packing" (whatever that is), not causing any damage to the surrounding marble squares.
The "Franklin Report" is right on with all accolades.
I will surely let the head of my condo complex know what a great job your men did.

Again- thank you, thank you.

Dear Mr. Kraus,

I have recently completed extensive renovation on my apartment on Park Avenue. The job required one and one-half years and a multitude of contractors before its completion.

After considerable dissatisfaction with other plumbing contractors, my superintendent recommended Fred Smith, our building plumbing company.

James Keeney was assigned to my job. All my plumbing concerns and problems were resolved at that point. Mr. Keeney is both knowledgeable and receptive to his clientele. Under his directive your company has proved most efficient and reliable. Your technicians were excellent and Mr. Keeney particularly outstanding.

I have and will continue to recommend the Fred Smith organization and Mr. Keeney and intend to use you for all future work.

My wife and I have used your services twice now in the past year. I cannot begin to tell you how much we appreciate the quality of your service - from the scheduling, quick response, the great technicians .... and just generally how well organized your business is run. In this day and age...it is a rarity. An additional note ---in past years, I had worked as an architect and an interior designer -- dealing with literally hundreds and hundreds of contractors and subcontractors in the NYC area...and Fred Smith Plumbing easily tops the list.

Our best wishes for your continued success,

Dear Mr. Kraus, Many times people write to complain when they think something might not be right, however, we forget to say "thank you" when things do go right.

They are fabulous. We needed a plumbing job done quick on a condo and they came out the same day I called, assessed the problem, went off to buy parts, which they didn't have, he called every supplier he knew of to try and get the part we needed. In the end, we had to order it, but the second they were in he called and was in to fix the problem. The receptionist is friendly and helpful, the technician that did the job was also friendly, professional, thorough, experienced, neat and even cleaned up after himself. 5 stars!

I recently had some issues with the heat in my building. Fred Smith Plumbing was so good to me and my tenants that I felt compelled to send a letter about how well the issue was resolved. I did so, but I wanted to post something that everyone can see. Not only did the company send me a supervisor within less than an hour after i called, but he fixed the problem for me right then and there. I was fortunate that it required minimum repairs, so he was able to get whatever was available after he spoke to someone on his radio. I was all set to have be stressed out and possibly miss work. It was such a relief to have the issue resolved so quickly and professionally. I should mention that the bill didn't hurt as much as I thought.( Hopefully it was not an error and that's all there is to it....LOL)

Pros: They send professionals

Cons: I dont know if you always get the same plumber. maybe you can request them

These guys quoted me $4200 to remove and hook up a toilet and sink in existing locations, and install a new shower pan. Not a bad haul for one day's worth of work. Wish I made that kind of money!

From everyday problems to the kind of issues that give lesser firms fits, we've never met a New York plumbing or heating challenge we didn't love!

More about Fred Smith Plumbing & Heating

There are many reasons why New York’s premier residential buildings, institutions and private schools rely on Fred Smith Plumbing and Heating. Since 1914, our reputation has been built on high quality, fairly priced service and an impeccable attention to detail. On doing a job right the first time and doing it neatly. On never having to make excuses. We have over 120 trained professionals on staff and when you call Fred Smith, you always get a real live plumber on the phone—not a receptionist, or worse, an answering machine. Since we’re right in Manhattan, (something few of our competitors can say) we can always be there fast. In the event that we have more requests for emergency work than we can handle in any one day, we must give priority to the residential co-operative and condominium buildings because their problem may affect an entire community of tenants. We apologize ahead of time to the individual tenant whose work may need to be rescheduled at these peak demand times.
