Mixed feeling, but to be professional 5 stars, excellent service and workmanship, on short notice serviced our home,  but service come with high price, I guess plumbing is expensive.

My sump pump seemed to be recirculating water.  Wanted to get it checked before something catastrophic happened.  Adrian B came promptly.  Checked the pump in a variety of ways.  Answered my questions and gave me a clean bill of health.  Checked my backup to make sure it was working too.  And, no service fee, so there was no charge.  Not too many shops like this these days!  Thumbs way up!

Excel was on time and under budget. Once they realized that the work required was less than what was quoted, they reduced the price of the job. It is so refreshing to find an honest and trustworthy plumber. More...

We had our water heater replaced with Excel Plumbing. They were incredibly quick to answer your questions, well-priced, on time, and had great service from the technicians. They even helped take care the permit with the village. We would definitely recommend Excel Plumbing. More...

Call Excel for a plumbing issue. Came out immediately. Two great guys, put their foot booties on and did a perfect job in record time! I would highly recommend Excel!!!

We used Excel Plumbing for the first time today. Luke, the plumber who came to install a new toilet, was extremely professional, friendly and efficient. He kept us apprised of everything he was doing, and left our home spotless after he left. I would definitely use Excel Plumbing again, and I would highly recommend Luke and Excel. They did a great job! More...

This was the first time I used this company for plumbing services. Maureen was very fast replying to my request for a estimate and with follow up emails. I was informed when the tech, Egor, was on his way. After Egor arrived, he gathered his tools and had my new kitchen faucet installed quickly. He was very professional and cleaned everything up after. I would recommend this plumbing company to anyone that wants a job done well. Thank you More...

Denis fixed numerous plumbing issues at our house.  He was on time and did a great job.  Whenever I need a plumber I will definitely call Excel Plumbing and ask for Denis.  He was great!


Adrienne R.

Thanks for a job well done. Luke came in and looked at sink and faucet and saw where water was coming from. We discussed what type of faucet would serve my needs. Because I'm on a fixed income he suggested a Moen because it was similar to the one I had, and the cost was within my budget. He left then returned to install and he even put my cleaning supplies back under the sink! More...

Dan was AWESOME!! I'm one of those people that likes to be social with anyone coming by to help ME out by fixing an issue at my place, and Dan was super conversational, and precise, and professional. My new kitchen faucet looks GREAT!! Would absolutely recommend Excel and especially Dan! Thanks so much for the great work and the convo! More...

After trying to figure out what to do with a sump pit that had an unreliable pump, I started looking up my options on who to trust with this replacement as I am not always home and I wanted someone that I could trust to come in when I might be gone and just get the job done and get out.  Excel Plumbing won my business as I felt most comfortable with their team.  Thanks Excel!!!

Found this company on Yelp and I was very happy with the entire process. My mom needed a faucet replaced and Excel told me the name of the technician and texted me a picture of him before the appointment. I found this very reassuring and an excellent way of doing business. The tech was friendly and helpful and showed up on time. I would absolutely use this company again. More...

I have used Excel several times over the years. Recently they assisted with a bathroom upgrade. They are, by far, the best contract organization that I have ever worked with. They are true professionals that work to accommodate every need (outside of any scope) to complete their work, to their customers satisfaction. I HIGHLY recommend!!! More...

Excel plumbing did an excellent job for me and really got me out of a jam. The owner himself came to my house and they gave me an excellent price to change out my sump pump. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for plumbing help. They will be the company I use for life! More...

On Thursday, April 25, 2019, Dennis from Excel Plumbing, came to my house to change the shut-off valves and install a new faucet and drain on my kitchen sink. He was punctual, listened to what the customer wanted done, and did a very professional job. He has a good attitude and takes pride in his work. Would recommend! More...


Tom P.

I don't often write service reviews but after Denis from Excel left my house I felt compelled to do so. He showed up on time, was extremely personable, professional and knowledgeable. He diagnosed the issue almost immediately and went to work solving the problem. He kept me informed every step of the way and left the place looking better than when he started. He was great with my overly curious dogs and I couldn't be happier with the excellent work that he did! More...

Have used Excel multiple times, especially during the last big snow storm. The guys were very professional and very knowledgeable. I was afraid that, as it happens in situations like these, the folks would do the critical time-sensitive work first and bill me an unreasonable amount later. It was not the case here. I was quoted the work upfront and had time to decide. When they finished there were no surprises and all was done as expected. Impressive. More...

I had Brian O. from Excel unclog my kitchen sink and the whole process went great--such a relief to have a sink again, ahh! Brian came when they said he would, diagnosed, got to work, fixed it, gave me some good advice on how to avoid similar problems in the future, and even explained what causes a situation like mine. I would use them again in a flash (hopefully I won't have to soon though). I called to make my appointment and that process went swimmingly as well. More...

Excellent company with a quick response after leaving a message on a Sunday. They arrived as scheduled the following day to check our plumbing issue in our kitchen.  After viewing our problem Brian suggested we call our kitchen contractor to fix the problem. He admitted that they could damage our newly remodeled kitchen when fixing our leak. Wow, he was kind enough to be honest and didn't charge us for the call. We had used Excel in the past when we had a broken sewer line going out of the house to the front yard.  They worked quickly in terrible weather to determine what the sewer problem was and fixed it in a timely manner. Would recommend them for any of your plumbing needs! More...

Called Excel around 6:15 tonight and by 10:00 our problem was solved. I can't speak highly enough of Adrian, the plumber who came out. He was thoughtful, courteous, meticulous, professional, focused on not only diagnosing and repairing the problem, but also discussing with me every step of the way. He's a truly dedicated customer service technician and expert. And Tanya, the dispatcher, also great. She called me twice before Adrian got here just to keep me informed, and he was here in less than 2 hours. If these 2 professionals are any indication of this company's commitment to excellence, they've just earned a new customer for life.... More...



31 January 2019

Excellent service. Their technician Yuri is a genius. We had a plumbing issue that two other plumbers couldn't figure it out, but Yuri figured it out in 10 minutes. Great service, great price, and always prompt!! Would highly recommend Excel Plumbing to everyone! More...

Like hundreds of others, I had some frozen pipes in this record cold -- in my upstairs laundry!  Fearing a burst pipe, I called Excel (I am a repeat customer) and Tom answered promptly and professionally.  While they were slammed with calls, a few hours later, Tom was able to send a plumber.  Thirty minutes in advance, Yuri, the plumber, sent me a text with his photo (nice touch!) and the office alerted me by both email and a phone call.  Yuri got right to work on arrival and did not give up until he made major progress.  I'm hoping it will continue to thaw without a major leak -- I am confident Yuri has increased the odds of that happening.  I was really pleased with Yuri's professionalism and expertise.  Before leaving, he also showed me how to turn off the water source, what to do over the next few days and, as a bonus, offered a great idea about adding some vents in my ceiling to get heated air into the space between floors where the frozen pipe is located.  Another great service call by Excel!

I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful Excel Plumbing, and their plumber (Yuri) are! I asked for a quote last night, or rather around one in the morning, and got a quote almost immediately. After a brief phone call today and appointment was made for a plumber to arrive between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm. At a couple of minutes past two the doorbell rang. Yuri came up the stairs, introduced himself with great courtesy and friendliness and got to work immediately. Within half an hour the work was finished to perfection. The agreed on price was more than reasonable, and an electronic receipt was sent on the spot to my Email address. What a company! And what a great plumber! More...

My family moved into BG over a year ago and as any new homeowner would have, had to call the plumber. The first time i had no idea who to call so i checked the internet. When i saw that Excel was nearby and that they offered a discount for Veterans i got them on the phone immediately.  I called at 9am and the person on the phone let me know that although the staff was fully scheduled they would send someone out that day. By noon i got the call that Carlos was already enroute and his ETA was twenty minutes out. Carlos came by with shoe covers and i explained the issue. After some diagnostics he let me know my options. He and i spoke about what would be the best way to handle the situation and we agreed on a plan that was priced right. Then he got to work.  Carlos got the job done and answered all of the questions i had about the job. Great job Carlos and Excel thanks for the prompt service. More...

Well, I believe this is my second review of Excel. Had an exterior sewer pipe collapse on Christmas Eve with 25 people at my home. Excel was able to fix the problem temporarily that evening. A few days later Uri came out, explained the problem (after viewing it with a camera...cheap, faulty plastic connection used - had work done 10 plus years ago by another plumber - which connected my PVC pipe to the original clay pipe close to the street), and gave me a quote. I had already talked to a few of my friends and knew the quote was reasonable.  Having used Excel several times in the past (both at my home and my dad's home), I knew they would do a good job. His team came out the next day (permits and utility markings done early that morning), and Alexander and his pleasant team replaced the collapsed sewer line....very relieved!! I would not hesitate to use them. Thank you! More...

Excel Plumbing earned my five star rating after they quickly replied to my request for service. I am confident that their quick reply is an example of their high quality plumbing work. Unfortunately, my girlfriend's brother-in-law is fixing our plumbing problem. I expect you will be happy you hired Excel Plumbing. Regards, Tom More...

Excellent experience. I submitted a request for an estimate and received a call making an appointment for the same day. Excel called back asking if the tech could come over earlier which was just fine. A photo of the tech was sent to be prior to his arrival. Once on site I got the quote for a replacement toilet and the work was completed within a couple hours at a very reasonable price. The tech, Luke, was very polite, clean and neat. I highly recommend Excel for their customer service, concern for the safety of the consumer and their tech, and for their attention to detail. Great job! More...

I had two experiences and they were both great.  I got an estimate for a spiget which I approved.  The plumber found a lot of things obstructing the direct path outside for the pipes.  It took him a while longer than expected but he got the job done and he didn't increase his estimate even though it turned out to be much more challenging. Very happy with the work and effort put into completing the job. More...

I needed to take care of the client's house. There was a water leak. I called Excel and talked to Tanya. Even though it was a busy time, she was able to send me a plumber within 45 minutes of my call. The job was done, client happy and the rep was very friendly and understanding. I will for sure use this company again next time. More...

We were new in town, and did not have a plumber.  Excel responded quickly at night to our emergency: a failed sump pump with water about to come into a finished basement.  They arrived with a replacement in time to avoid damage.  Came back the next morning to snake out the lines that had been the source of the water.  They were life savers, and we are now customers for life.

Excel Plumbing responds quickly and is quick to address all plumbing issues.  I am a landlord, and they work directly with tenants to schedule at their convenience.  I have used them for several jobs and their pricing has been better or at least comparable to market rates.  With the service level provided, quality of work, and pricing I would highly recommend their services.

I do not have enough amazing things to say about Excel! Literally could not imagine how I was going to get all my plumbing completed and right the first time if it wasn't for Excel Plumbing. I came in to a huge mess after moving in to my new home and I needed to add a completely new bathroom, they knew what they were doing and made the entire process super easy and took a lot of stress off me! These guys are truly impressive! More...

We had a sump pump break during a rainstorm while away at work.  Found 2 inches of water in our finished basement that night.  Called Excel and they had somebody in the area who arrived within 30 minutes.  All the other plumbers gave us a "maybe in an hour" etc...  They replaced the sump pump and drained the standing water in 15 minutes.  Constantine was polite, informative and resourceful.  He helped us with information on backup systems and alternatives.  We hired them to replace the other sum pump, add backup systems, and remove an old water softener.  They are prompt and they follow up after the job. They are our new official plumber.  Highly recommend. More...

After recently having a "repair man" from a different company come out to service my water heater I had called Excel Plumbing to actually do the job, the right way. At roughly 9:30pm last night I was told that I would have somebody at my home for servicing between 8:30am-9:00am. A HALF HOUR WINDOW?! That's incredible. (last company told me between 8am-12pm and the guy showed at 5pm). Konstantin showed up, very friendly and ready to address my issue. I cannot be more literal when I say that he had diagnosed the issue, repaired it and tested it had my hot water back up and no more leaking from the faulty valve i had in 14 minutes!!! Thank you, Excel for the outstanding customer service! Highly recommend!!! More...

11 December 2017

I read yelp reviews to decide on a plumbing service for a small drain rooter job.  The recent reviews for Excel looks promising, particularly about Ignazio.  I called for an appointment and got a good time for the same day.  The technician arrived early, estimated the cost and got to work.    I was delighted to see the name tag of Ignazio.  Several Yelp reviews referred to this name.  Indeed, the job cost what he estimated and he was in and out in less than 30 minutes.  Not much can be worse than a drain backing up stinking junk.  It cannot get better than promptly, professionally, for a fair price, getting the issue resolved!

Really good and reasonable. I had HVAC company come over and they noticed that the water heater is leaking and have me a price of over $2,200.00. Friend recommended to contact Excel Plumbing, it was half the amount. Brian came in and installed a water heater that same day. After, used Excel Plumbing for some other stuff and they have fixed everything. Really good company and I would strongly recommend them. More...

I had to have quite a bit of work done - all the piping under the kitchen sink rebuilt, new kitchen faucet, rod out the kitchen drain line, replace the innards of two toilets.  Excel sent Luigi who came at a time that was convenient for me.  He told me what needed to be done - no hard sell.  He gave me several options and explained everything fully.  He came back the next day as agreed and completed all the work as agreed.  He cleaned up after himself and left everything in A+ shape.  He is very professional - I was very pleased.  I will be having Excel/Luigi back in the near future to take care of a few more things that need to be done.  You can't go wrong with Excel.

19 September 2017

First time I have ever called a plumber to my house, and the experience was great!!!I called Excel plumbing at 9:00 AM due to a clogged sink. The water was not going down after I washed dishes. I tried using a plunger, it did not work and the smell became unbearable. When I called, the rep I spoke with was very knowledgeable and nice. I had someone come out to my house at Noon 3 hours later. The plumber identified the problem right away and got to work. He set up tarps and made sure that everything stayed very clean and dry. He finished the work, made sure that everything was in working order and cleaned up after himself. The one thing I was worried about was getting over charged with "extras" like I have heard from others when calling a plumber. That was not the case here. When I called they told me the charges and what to expect. This was a great experience, I would recommend Excel Plumbing to anyone. *****5 STARS!!!!!! More...

Had a cleanout installed and sewer line repaired.  Also, had a gas leak in the fireplace fixed.

MAX from Excel Plumbing is a "Plumbing Professional-Expert" who is extremely knowledgeable, detailed and methodical!   This is the first time I've used Excel Plumbing.  Prior I've used DRF for 14.  DRF installed an injector pump on the lower level and never sealed the lid. Gasses have been floating for years, however I never knew and thought it was my damn cat! NOT!Max came in and assessed the issue and rectified it immediately. That said, and due to his professionalism and being so knowledgeable, I'm going to schedule to have all 4 toilets, shut off valve, etc... all replaced. The BEST service. Dear Excel Plumbing Owner,Max did an outstanding professional job.  I sure hope you take care of him how he took care of me regarding my plumbing issues.  He is an absolute asset to your company.Thanks again!

We came home from vacation and discovered our sump pump had failed, no damage luckily. I found Excel Plumbing on Yelp and gave them a call this morning. A helpful operator walked through the situation and promised a plumber would be here between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. Like clockwork the Excel called a little after 1:00 to let us know the plumber was one the way. When Mark, the plumber, arrived he was courteous and well spoken. He analyzed the problem gave me options and a written quote. I approved the work and he was done in a little over an hour and a half. He did good quality work, cleaned everything up, emailed me photos of the repair and a receipt. The work was top notch. I highly recommend Excel Plumbing. More...

Since buying my home I have been having a problem with not having enough hot water, I had numerous plumbing companies come out and all told me it was related to water heater (which was relatively new and I wasn't going to replace it!). Eventually Excel came out and determined that the lines were crossed inside the wall. They were able to quickly rectify the problem with minimum damage to the drywall and even had a contractor come out to patch up the wall at no extra charge.Their plumbers were always on time, clean, courteous, knowledgeable and fairly priced.I recommend Excel Plumbing to everyone I know, and will continue to use them myself.

What an amazing reputable company. I had a very nice man come to my home over  three months ago to fix a problem. He did an great job but, for some reason it happened again. This issue could have been my fault or just wear and tear. I called them to come out again because I really like their service. The plumber they sent me was a man named John. He was amazing!!! He took the time to really look into the problem and to make sure it will never happen again. I was a few weeks out of my warranty but they still honor that. That tells me a lot about the company, they clearly are there for their customers. I recommend this company 1000% I have had nothing but The most positive experiences with them.  This will be the only plumber I use and recommend to anyone and everyone!!!!!! More...

Last Year I had an RPZ installed in my home for sprinkler system and it broke because I forgot to properly winterize it. I called them and explained the situation and wanted to get a quote for new RPZ, but instead of installing a brand new unit, Excel guys sent a repair guy who was able to repair it with needed parts for 1/4th the cost of new unit. I was amazed at the professionalism and desire to save me money on a repair. Highly recommend. More...

We had an issue with one of the toilet tanks in our condo not filling properly.  George came by and had the issue fixed within in 30 minutes.  He was super friendly and professional.  I cant comment on price as excel billed directly to the developer which was awesome for me, but the service was 5 star for sure.  If I need a plumber in the future I will be calling Excel first.

We contracted Excel to provide all plumbing needs for our restaurant. They exceeded our expectations! Always on time, never missed a step! Vlad is probably one of the best true project managers I've met. What I was amazed at is their ability to think ahead and prevent possible problems. Strategic Project Panning. The money they saved us by eliminating problems was well worth the money we paid. Highly recommend! More...

Yury from Excel came out today to replace my garbage disposal and fix my faucet. Before assuming it needed to be replaced, he tried to fix it. He went back to the shop, got all the materials and new garbage disposal, and returned quickly. He did an excellent, professional job. He was nice, he cleaned up everything afterwards, and told me if I needed additional service that I should watch for the coupons - pay $25 for $50 in service. The amazing part was the price was less than half of another quote I got earlier in the day. I will definitely use Excel the next time I have a plumbing issue. More...

We had called Excel in for what appeared to be a simple laundry tub faucet assembly replacement.  Then while checking connections, the serviceman, David, noticed extremely advanced electrolysis at an ancient connection in the furnace room that also was leaking and would have burst had it gone on too much longer.  So we ended up with a much bigger project, including replacement of corroded pipes plus a new laundry tub.  But a crisis was averted.  Throughout, David was helpful and informative, a true professional.  A big job at a reasonable price.

I worked with Vlad to setup an appointment to fix a broken water heater. He was very professional and made sure the tech's showed up on time. George was the tech and he was also extremely professional and efficient throughout the entire process. I highly recommend using Excel and will certainly be a returning customer if I ever need any plumbing work again. More...

fast, affordable service!We used Excel Plumbing for an issue with our water heater leaking. The plumber (George) came quickly (within a few hours), talked through the problem and possible solutions and provided an estimate of the cost. The low end of the estimate was the service fee ($90), which is higher than some but is not automatically charged just for providing an estimate (see my other reviews...)Once I authorized him to start working, he had the problem diagnosed and fixed within 15-20 minutes, including cleaning up the excess water. George was professional, courteous and his work was high quality, including tightening up a bolt that the water heater installer had not tightened.We were very happy with Excel Plumbing and would highly recommend them!

Very Pleased With The Speedy, Quality, Neatness and Professionalism of Service from Excel Plumbing, Wheeling, Illinois.I called "Judy" at Excel Plumbing in Wheeling, Illinois around 9:00am on a Monday, discussed a plumbing problem and she scheduled a repair person to arrive between 1:00pm and 3:00pm on the same day.  At 1:10pm Judy called and said the repair person would be there in fifteen to twenty minutes...and he was.George Rivera listened to the plumbing issues:  Leak in the basement washtub area and drain blockage in the kitchen sink/garbage disposal/dishwasher.  Quickly diagnosed the basement problem which involves a simple faucet replacement which I can do.The drain blockage was cleared after a couple attempts...he worked hard and yet kept everything neat and clean.  George had all the rodding out tools, flashlight to check out leaks, paper towels, drop cloth, garbage bags and was a pleasure to know.  The repair comes with a 31 day guarantee as well.Highly recommend Excel Plumbing, Wheeling, IL.  Hey, and if you get George Rivera, even better.

Had more issues with my kitchen sink and toilet. George, the plumber was great. He replaced the toilet, and had to struggle to make it level as our floor was not. Parts for my sink were needed, got a little messed up with the ordering so it took longer, but they made it right. They re-rodded my sink, replaced the part and all I had to pay for was the part. Not the labor again. Very fair and commendable by the people in charge in the office. Would recommend George especially. Knew his stuff well!!! More...

These guys did a great job.  They fit me in the same day and were at my house within 3 hours of my initial call.  Did a great and thorough job of diagnosing and showing me the problem and completed the job in less than 45 minutes, which was the amount of time they told me it would take to complete.  The motto on the web site: "Quality work at affordable price" suits them well.  I would definitely use Excel Plumbing again.

I just had Excel plumbing out to fix my sump pumps that had gone out.  I was really frustrated because we just installed new sump pumps a little over year ago with a different company, who wouldn't deal with our issue because we were just past warranty.  It was after hours when I called and they sent two really knowledgable, professional technicians to my home - George and David.  They were able to quickly identify that the real cause of the problem was a blockage in my pipes that needed to be addressed or else any new sump pumps I installed would ultimately fail.  They took care of the problem quickly and only charged what I needed service for (one of my pumps was workable).  I really appreciated their honesty, expertise and courteousness.  I would definitely recommend them.

Very pleased with the service from Excel.  Conrad showed up on time, and let me know exactly how he was going to proceed to clear a clogged toilet line.  Had it rooted out by another company 2 weeks ago and it was clear that company really did not know what they were doing.  Excel had the right equipment to get the job done and done right.  Very courteous and a fair price to do the work.  Was actually cheaper than the company that did it wrong in the first place.  I will absolutely use Excel again if I have another plumbing issue.

I needed a report from a certified plumber to get my house under contract.  Excel had someone at my house within 2 hours.  He inspected what the prospective buyer wanted inspected and they had a written report back to me about 4 hours after I first called them.  Before he started, the plumber, John, asked if I understood that there would be a charge for the service even though there was nothing to fix.  And they were half the price of the other company I had contacted (I lucked out since that company couldn't get to us for 24 Hours)All I can say is WOW!!!  These guys are amazing.  Is it too corny to say that Excel Plumbing walks on water?

David #1434 was the plumber that just came and solved my toilet issue. He came 10 minutes earlier than the time frame the company had promised me. David gave me with a free estimate then showed me what the problem was then provided me an estimate of a decent price. He had a nice attitude from the minute he walked through my door. So I went ahead and used his service with very little hesitation. At the end, he did the job of what he was asked for. He cleaned up after himself and he also volunteered to check if the problem in fact had been solved and if there were any more issues! What more could you ask for!?I had called 15 places for quotes before I found this company and I am glad I did! So far I would recommend this company to anyone needing help. More...

A pipe in our 2nd floor bathroom sprang a leak that quickly flooded the bathroom and began to drip into our 1st floor kitchen. This all happened after hours, so we had to find an after hours plumber quickly. I called the emergency number for Excel and someone quickly answered and came within the hour. The service worker that arrived assessed the problem and began working immediately. Their prices were reasonable, especially for an emergency service. They charge a flat fee of $200 for the first hour and $75 for every half an hour after that. When the service worker was there he was actually running up and down the stairs of our house (presumably to finish the job quickly). However, he did have to go back to his store to get another part we needed to finish the job and the clock did not stop when he was gone. It took him a little over half an hour to get there and back. So, that brought the work time up to 1.5 hours, all of which we were charged for. However, it did seem like he was trying to finish in as little time as possible and their work is guaranteed for a year. He did clean up the entire area after the work was complete and was organized and informative as to what was wrong and how he fixed it. More...

We have used Excel for several jobs both big and small (replacing water heaters, fixing toilets, repairing leakage in the pipe inside basement wall, etc) and every time it was a great experience. They are always on time within promised window, very professional and knowledgeable, get the job done in the most cost effective and efficient manner, and clean up after they are done. They also keep up with the latest technologies using iPads for looking up and showing prices for various equipments and jobs and taking payments electronically.We will continue using Excel for any future plumbing needs.  Michael & Irene.
