    Fast and professional service! Reasonable pricing. Friendly personnel. A very pleasant experience.

  • Glen H. - Hammond, IN

    Always the same positive experience. Dealing with an old house, repairing old work and installing new, the gentleman who is the one who generally works on my three properties is always competent and thorough. Have been a Downing Plumbing customer for more than thirty years and have always been satisfied.


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

We get a technician on site to determine what repairs or replacements are needed.  The technician will then give a written proposal explaining repairs required & options if applicable.  Then we can often do the work same day depending on the scope of work.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

We are licensed and bonded in Illinois and Indiana and staff a team of trained certified technicians in fully stocked trucks.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

We use straight forward pricing rather than pricing per hour.  That way you know exactly what is going to be done and how much it will cost.

What types of customers have you worked with?

We work with Residential, Commercial, and Industrial customers.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

I would advise to look for a pro with a great deal of experience and a proven track record.  If you go for the cheap plumber who works out of his garage you will certainly not get the professionalism or guarantees that you will get with an established plumbing company.
