I can't say enough good things about this company. Marty spent hours walking through our new home with me and helping me diagnose all sorts of odd issues I had found since the purchase of our 100-year-old home. He went way out of his way to help me identify a mysterious gas line that ran through the center of our chimney, whose access point had been cemented in 40-year earlier. He was patient in his explanations, highly knowledgeable, and the work was reasonably priced. We've worked with several contractors since the home purchase, but so far Guirkin has stolen the show from a customer-service standpoint.

From Angie's List West End, Richmond

I called on a Saturday afternoon, and the plumber arrived in less than an hour. He quickly figured out what was causing a leak under my kitchen sink and fixed it with no additional charge above just the minimum charge to come out ($150 on a weekend). He was very friendly and helpful. Based on this experience, I'd recommend them.

From Angie's List Midlothian, VA

Fast and clean. It was almost embarrassing how fast and good it was done. I had a party planned and I could not imagine what to do with my sink blocked. They saved my day and my party.

From Angie's List Richmond, VA

When we ever need to get any other plumbing done in our house it certainly we be Guirkin that gets the job.  It is a pleasure to do business with a company that follows through on their word, has a great team working for them, and gives the customer relief in knowing that things will be done right, and done right the first time. Thanks Guirkin!

From Angie's List Chesterfield, VA

Andy Guirkin went above and beyond to help me in the nick of time with my AC unit which already had water backing up in the overflow pan, soon to start leaking through my kitchen ceiling if the problem wasn't fixed ASAP, and not to mention my unit wasn't cooling properly! To top it off, it was a holiday. No one wants to call for a home repair on a holiday! He came right away. He fixed the problem. He did not charge a crazy holiday rate. Good people do exist in the business world. Trustworthy, kind and competent. I am so grateful and I highly recommend this company.

My AC went out during a stretch of 100 degree days.  My husband's mother had died the day before, and so we had family coming in from out of town to stay with us.  I called Guirkin at 7:00 AM and left an "emergency" message with their answering service.  At 9:00 AM Tommy Guirkin called to tell me someone would be here within the hour.  By 11:30 AM the AC was fixed, and my house was already cooler.  I can never thank them enough for saving the day during a very difficult time for our family. We have used them many times before for both plumbing and heating/AC issues.  I appreciate their friendly, knowledgeable technicians and great service, and I highly recommend them.

Had a service call today. Techs not only found the problem but when it was not plumbing related, even gave us a name of a firm so we can get problem resolved. Then they presented me with an invoice for $0. Did not even charge for service call! You don't find this type of service anymore -the service techs actually cared and were so were professional ! Guirkin will be the one we call for all our plumbing needs from now on ! good people are out there - give them a try - you won't be sorry.

Colleen S. from Facebook Richmond VA

Guirkin's plumbers are fast & thorough. They have done a couple things around our house and I've been very pleased with the service, communications, quality & pricing. I like that I can speak directly with the owner if I have an issue, and they remember me when I call in. Give them a call, support local business!

Chris W. from Google Glen Allen, VA

We wouldn't use any other plumbing & HVAC company. These folks are honest, knowledgeable, thorough, professional and even funny! We've been using this company for 31 years and wouldn't think of going anywhere else!

Tom B. from Google Richmond, VA

Excellent service at a fair price! I called on Tuesday and they committed to service between 1 and 4 on the next day. Received called Wednesday at 12 that technician was on the way. The technician was dressed professional, affable and very accommodating. He took his shoes off so as not to track in the house. Also, their customer service person was very nice...candidly most of the other companies I called sounded like they would be doing me a favor, very cavalier.Also, their van was very cleaned with a "knock out" painting scheme. They have a A+ rating on Better Business Bureau and Angie's list...old company with "old school" values, refreshing.

David Y. from Google Richmond, VA

I've been very happy with Guirkin's service over the years. They've installed a garbage disposal, gas logs and a new shower for us. We've had excellent service and communication from them, they're reasonable, fast and reliable. I would recommend this old Richmond business to any homeowner who needed plumbing.
