"To Francis Plumbing & Heating,

I called your company at 11:30 this morning - my water heater was "oozing water" from its' base. Now it is 4pm and I have a brand new one! Good job!

You provided clear and comprehensive information on the phone, you stuck to the price you provided, your plumbers showed up when promised, and they even reworked the installation to provide more storage space in the basement.

Thank you - I am glad I didn't take my business to others who say the offer the same services!

Stewart Baillie - Ottawa, ON"
