"Thank you for your prompt attention to our plumbing problem. You are blessed to have such a superb crew.

Your company is and always will be our "go to" plumbing group when we need work done professionally. Integrity is your middle name. Thank you!" - Stuart F.

Basically Great

Basically, everything was just fine after I had to make several calls to clarify my order and to make sure I was getting the correct appliance. Installation and technical knowledge was terrific!!!

Top notch all the way

Professional, quality work. The team was fast, neat and very respectful of special requests. Excellent attention to detail and overall customer satisfaction. They were not the lowest bid but a good example of you get what you pay for.

Fabulous Service, Extremely knowledgeable, High Marks on customer service!

In just one word... fabulous. I had a water heater fail late one evening at a rental property. I called them the next morning and they were able to accommodate me. Within a matter of hours, they removed the old, installed the new and had it up and running. Very knowledgeable, customer service oriented and a joy to work with. Highly recommend!!!!

water main repair

What I liked most is the personal, patient attention I got from Mr. Nahman about my project. He listened and answered every question I had without making me feel petty or stupid. He personally visited the jobsite twice and even took pictures to send me (as I am a landlady and not living nearby.) Top notch service.

Professional and Informative

This operation did a very nice job with our commercial boiler/storage tank project. The techinicians that orginally assessed the situation were both very knowledgable and did a great job of walking me through the process. The repairman who handled the repair was professional and friendly and was able to complete the job with minimal impact on the daily operations of our business.

Professional Work from start to completion

Having had excellent prior experience with the plumbing services, we decided to hire them for the installation of a new High Efficiency Furnace at our home in Albany. We couldn't be happier with the results! They were ever so respectful of our home and constantly were vacuuming and cleaning up after themselves. Happy to recommend them .

Excellent Service!!

We called Albert Nahman late one afternoon after having dealt with problems with our water heater for quite a while. The next morning someone came to assess the situation. We really didn't know what our best choice would be to take care of the problem, replace the tank or put in a tankless unit. We were given clear information about the benefits and drawbacks with our choices. The work involved was clearly described and a price was given with everything itemized. We decided to go with the tankless and were lucky enough to get an appointment for the next day. The technicians came when they said they would and completed the work quickly and cleanly. For us, it was a relief from the problems we had been dealing with. We would very highly recommend Albert Nahman again. Great job!

great service, on time

Incredible and professional service......:)

Dear Mr. Nahman

I am writing to thank you for the splendid work your professional staff did in bringing plumbing to a new laundry room....Your reputation as a man of great integrity, who provides competent and careful service is well deserved....I will spread the word as widely as possible that a great plumbing company exists in our midst.

Excerpted from letter by Ruth Rosen, Berkeley, CA

Dear Mr. Nahman,

I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with their installation of the two toilets and the water heater.  The cleanup was A plus.  The two men handled the heater as though feathers and drilled through resistant materials and made new openings where old ones had decayed.  I wanted you to know how pleased I am.  Thank you to the two installers, Paul and Stanley.

To those in need of plumbing services in the Berkeley/East Bay area:

We would like to offer a few words on behalf of the folks at Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating,  Our comments are based upon an extended interaction with the company during the summer of 2007 during which, together with Albert Nahman management, we developed a plan for extensive remedial work on both the exterior and interior components at our residence in Berkeley.


We had a challenging project, one that was going to be complicated and time consuming no matter what.  There were many options to consider and a limited budget.  We needed a lot of guidance on the pros and cons of the various approached before any work could begin.  Despite the fact that they were not sure they would even get the job, the senior people at Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating (including Albert himself) spent considerable time advising us, explaining everything, making recommendations and attaching costs and expenses to each option.  This up-front interaction was invaluable.

When the work began, it flowed flawlessly.  There were not interruptions in the schedule, the workers showed up on time and worked hard every day and the project was completed on time and according to the estimates.

We repeat:  The project cost exactly what the estimates said it would cost--most unusual in our experience.  When we had questions during the work, answers were supplied promptly and professionally and in a manner we could understand.  There was never a time when we were left in the dark, confused about what was being done or felt we were being treated unfairly.  There is little doubt that this company cares about its customers and truly wants to please them and meet their needs. This conclusion is not based on some vague impression; it became obvious to us not only from our overall experience with Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating but also from day-to-day communication during the project,  Clear and direct communication with customers must be an important part of the training and approach which Albert himself insists upon.

One final comment-something which was very important to us:  It was fun having the guys who did the work around our home.  Although, they were obviously highly skilled, they were also pleasant people, polite, considerate and with senses of humor.  It seems that so often these days one cannot wait to have service people gone.  However, this was not the feeling we were left with as a result of our interaction with Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating.

In sum, we highly recommend Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating.
