We have a fairly new radiant heat system that was not installed by Zeek. All of a sudden we had no heat on the second floor. Rich and Ryan immediately determined that the pressure tank originally installed was not the correct one, replaced that part and had the system up and running for us. We had another issue a few days later. Rich returned immediately and took care of the problem at no cost to us.We are very happy to have found Zeek (and Rich) and we look forward to working with them in the future!
Very professional very fast and very friendly. Over all amazing service by Bill. He took the time to do the job right n make sure it was working properly without wasting time. And took the time to explain what was causing the problems. Would recommend to anyone who needs a plumber. Extremely satisfied.Update, 2 days later had issues and called them back, with in 24 hrs they came back to resolve the problem. Sent multiple guys to find where the issue was in the system. Located a bad pipe and replaced it. All is flowing good now thankyou so much for working with us to resolve this issue.
We are sooo happy with our experiences with Zeek! We had them out twice - they did a bunch of repairs for us and then when it turned out the problem was deeper than we thought they came back and stuck with it until they figured it out. They were professional, neat, safe and thorough. Huge thanks to Rich for coming out to diagnose the problem and the whole team for hanging in until it was fixed!
Responded quickly, Bill did a great job, no mess. Would definitely recommend...
We woke up to see a leak coming through our kitchen ceiling, and we feared the worst. Tim and RJ were great. They diagnosed and solved the issue quickly and gave me a very fair price. Very considerate and professional. Highly recommended these guys.
Good services, fast response and Steve very helpful.Bill came to my house and fix the boiler.Reasonable price.Will call them again..
My family and I cannot thank Zeek Plumbing enough! We had a horrible experience with Best Buy trying to get our new washer/dryer installed when we moved into our new house. The team Best Buy hired was a no call/no show twice! Then they said they didn't have the parts they needed, so we ended up canceling their service. We finally came across Zeek and Bill was able to come out the next morning. He was very nice and professional and clearly an expert in his field. The job was done perfectly within a few hours and now our new home is up and running like a well oiled machine. We will definitely be calling Zeek back for anything needed in the future. Thank you!
ZEEK plumbing came through when our Water Heater failed. Called other plumbers but ZEEK was the only one to offer and on the spot estimate and immediate response to replace our water heater.I have used ZEEK before and once again a most professional crew arrived and completed the installation in a timely proficient manner. I would highly recommend ZEEK to anyone's plumbing needs. They truly focus on customer care which is evident in the services performed, THANK YOU ZEEK!
It was a pleasure dealing with Tim from Zeek Plumbing and Mechanical. He and his partner did an amazing job. He is an excellent professional. I will definitely recommend him.
