Accountability & Trust

DR Francis scores well for accountability and trust. They have been in business for 87 years, and they have had 1 complaint filed against them with the Better Business Bureau over the past 3 years. Francis Plumbing & Heating is also accredited by the Better Business Bureau which we believe is important to create accountability.

Online Reviews

When it comes to reviews and ratings found on solid online business review sites, the company does well with good reviews on HomeStars, Google, 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 would be good if every plumber publicly offered a warranty on their labour and the parts they install in people’s homes. On top of this, it’s ideal when a plumber also offers a satisfaction guarantee – assuring you, the paying customer, that the repair or installation you pay for is not done until you’re satisfied that it’s finished.

While satisfaction guarantees and parts and labour warranties are commonly offered in some Canadian cities, they’re only publically offered by 30% of plumbers in the Greater Ottawa Area. However, it’s good to see that DR Francis offers a warranty of 1 year on parts and labour and a satisfaction guarantee.
