Accountability & Trust

Shanks Plumbing scores well for accountability and trust. They have been in business for 70 years, and they have had 1 complaint filed against them with the Better Business Bureau over the past 3 years. In our view, they could improve some more by becoming accredited by the Better Business Bureau.

Online Reviews

When it comes to reviews and ratings found on solid online business review sites, the company does very well with strong reviews on HomeStars, Google Places for Business, and Yelp. We were concerned to see some unnatural patterns in their online reviews. This can happen sometimes when plumbing companies encourage a lot of their happiest clients to rate the company on specific review sites.

Warranties & Satisfaction Guarantee

We think it is important that every plumbing company stand behind their work with a parts and labour warranty and ideally a satisfaction guarantee – guaranteeing you the paying customer that the job you pay for is not done until you’re satisfied.

While warranties and satisfaction guarantees are common in some Canadian cities, only 30% of plumbers publically offer them in the Greater Toronto Area.

Shanks Plumbing has not published any information publicly about offering a specific warranty or satisfaction guarantee.
