Additional Complaint Information

On June 21, 2013, BBB recognized a pattern of complaints from consumers regarding billing, service and customer service issues. Consumers allege they are quoted a price for service when they call Beacon Plumbing & Mechanical Inc, but the fee for services and parts increases after the work is completed. Consumers claim they were not aware of or expecting these fee increases. Consumers also allege after the work has been completed by the company, further damage is caused to their residence. Consumers further allege when they present their concerns to employees of the company, they experience poor customer service.

Beacon Plumbing & Mechanical Inc is working with BBB in an effort to eliminate the underlying cause of the pattern of complaints.
