Honest Renovators should be the first company on your list when you need some plumbing assistance. You may look at the name and think that all they’re good for is renovating, but the people over at Honest Renovators are pretty much the best at everything they do - and that includes plumbing.

Taking a quick look at their google reviews, we can see that through almost 90 reviews, they have maintained a 4.9 star average. That’s just impressive.

If you want to look even deeper into the reviews, you’ll find that not only do they do their job quickly and effectively, their customer service is what sets them apart from the rest. They’re patient, understanding, and of course, honest.

Matt Mertz Plumbing is just about as good as it gets when it comes to solving your plumbing problems in Pittsburgh. They have a pretty stellar track record and have been known to get problems fixed the day after you call them. 

By the time you call to tell them about a leaky sink, we’re sure that the problem has persisted for at least a few days, and the last thing you’d want to do is wait another week to get that problem fixed. 

If you need even more confirmation that Matt Mertz Plumbing is a great option when you’re in need of someone to fix that leaky pipe, take a look at their absolutely unreal Angie’s List ratings. As of writing this, Matt Mertz Plumbing has no less than 1028 “A” rated reviews. What? We know, we couldn’t believe it either - it’s incredible! 

If you’ve got a problem and you need it fixed quickly, Matt Mertz Plumbing is a great place to call. 

3. Kangaroo Plumbing

314-244-5775 | 5512 Howe St, Pittsburgh, PA |

Kangaroo Plumbing has a legacy of excellence in the business of Pittsburgh plumbing. Don’t believe us? Would you believe the 245 “A” ratings on Angie’s List

We thought you would. In addition to almost everyone being satisfied with Kangaroo Plumbing’s work, other contractors even compliment the work that they do! 

According to an Angie’s List review from 1/09/2021 another contractor told their client that the gas line that Kangaroo Plumbing put in was really well done. So, everyone who he sees Kangaroo Plumbing’s work is impressed with it - even their competitors! 

4. Cuccaro Plumbing

If you visit Cuccaro Plumbing’s residential services page you’ll find that they have the answer to any and all of your plumbing needs. The Google reviews say it all - a 4.7 average out of 78 reviews. Those are some impressive numbers that give you an idea of how this plumbing company functions more than anything we can say. But that doesn’t mean we won’t continue to gush about Cuccaro Plumbing. 

The fact that they could be your one-stop-shop for plumbing fixes is great, but even better - they’re committed to a minimal disruption policy. 

Minimal disruption just means that when they do any kind of job, they’ll do their best to be non-destructive, and try to keep the mess that can come along with repairing all in one spot. 

Making sure that your house isn’t an absolute mess after or even during the process of fixing your plumbing issue is something we along with all of their returning customers value highly. 

5. Pawlak Plumbing

Pawlak Plumbing Inc. has been in business since 1983, and there’s good reason for that. Pawlak Plumbing Inc. is a quality, reliable company that runs on fair prices and good work done. When you’re looking for reviews of this business, you’ll find some great Angie’s list reviews, but you won’t find that Pawlack Plumbing Inc. has won Angie’s Lists’ Super Service award for 14 years running. 14! How do they do it? By offering great rates and committing to a quality end-product. 

Head over to their Angie’s List reviews to see for yourself why this business made our list of best plumbers in Pittsburgh. Without even reading any of the reviews, you can tell that their customers are more than happy with the work they do by seeing how many “A” ratings they have - 412 out of 490 reviews. Those are some pretty astounding numbers, but we’d expect no less from Pawlak Plumbing Inc. 

The base rates are reasonable, but if you’re a first time customer with them, they’ll give you $15 off just to weaken the blow to your wallet. That’s how much faith they have in their ability to turn a first time customer, into a returning one. 

6. Terry’s Plumbing

Terry’s Plumbing has been in business since 1984 when it was founded by Terry and his wife, Nancy. The roots of this company are strong family ideals and hard work. We can’t imagine that you wouldn’t want a business like Terry’s plumbing to repair that dripping faucet. 

The folks at  Terry’s Plumbing know that the path to incredible service and a quality finished product includes trusting and respecting the customer, and listening intently so they can find the problem and fix it. Out of all their 98 Google reviews, they have achieved a 4.4 average score which is nothing to sneeze at. In addition, they’ve got 208 “A” rated reviews out of 281 reviews total on Angie’s List, and all of them are well deserved. 

Terry’s Plumbing has a saying - “don’t go to bed with that drip tonight.” For most businesses, that would just be a silly catchphrase that they throw onto the end of a commercial, but not for these guys. Terry’s Plumbing has a 24/7 “rapid response” phone line so that whenever you have a problem, they can come up with a solution. 

All In All...

Every business on this list is more than capable of handling whatever plumbing problems you have in a transparent, reasonable way. So - now that you’ve made it to the end of this article - call someone and get that dripping sink fixed for God’s sake!
