"Bernie was fantastic. He showed up right on time and solved my problem immediately. He even went on to do some things not directly related to the reason I called him in order to prevent problems later. And he was much more inexpensive than other quotes I received. I highly recommend him.

Ralph P

Bernie showed within the time frame that he stated. He was able to isolate the problem within 30 minutes after arriving. Luckily the problem turned out not to be as bad as I was suspecting. I would definitely give him a call in the future if I would incur any other problems.

Cogar plumbing was prompt in communication, appointment and completion of the job. His price was almost half of what my "local" plumbers were bidding! His attention to keeping the mess at bay during and after was admirable and I recommend him to other restaurant professional with grease trap issues! Thanks Bernie!

They were timely in fixing my plumbing issue. I thought they were going to look at it, give me an estimate and set up another appointment. NO, it was fixed on the first visit. Thank you for your quick response.

I needed an inspection asap, he came the next day. Price was good and sent me the report the very next morning.

Bernard responded to my Thumbtack request immediately and was able to come two days later. He arrived on-time and he and his crew were respectful and courteous. Completed job in about 1 1/2 hours. I will call Cogar Plumbing for future plumbing needs.

This is the third time we have used Cogar Plumbing and each experience has been a 5 star visit. Today, Bernie Cogar replaced 4 exterior faucets that required cutting interior walls. He is skilled, knowledgeable and through...and he does his homework before he starts the job and cleans up afterwards. It can sometimes be hard to find a master technician who can take on the mast difficult jobs but Cogar Plumbing can be trusted to do the job right at a fair price. 5 STAR!!!!
