Accountability & Trust

Shanks Plumbing scores well in our accountability and trust category. They have been operating for 71 years, and they have had 1 complaint filed over the last 3 years with the Better Business Bureau. In our view, they could improve some more by becoming accredited by the Better Business Bureau.

Online Reviews

In regard to ratings and reviews found on the internet, the company does fairly well with decent reviews on HomeStars, Google, and HomeStars. We were concerned to see some unnatural patterns in their reviews online. This can sometimes happen when plumbing companies encourage a lot of their most delighted clients to leave a review for the company on specific 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 40% 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.
