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.

Frequently asked questions

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.

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

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.

We work with Residential, Commercial, and Industrial customers.

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.
