Michael & Son Services

I would go anywhere else.

After setting up an appointment with Michael & Sons for replacement of my hot water heater. The appointment started off with the SALESMAN (whoops technician) telling me, I needed all these “items or work” to pass inspection but upon further questioning, it turned to “oh, that’s Michael & Sons policy, not a Fairfax County inspection issue.”

My price started at $2500 (go look online a good 50 gallon hot water heater costs between $500 and $750 bucks) for a basic hot water heater and install, plus $500 for the exhaust pipe and $500 for a new gas line. Which didn’t include my county permit or taxes. For a grand total of, wait for it, $3200.00.

My second try at procuring a hot water heater and install went much smoother and priced out at $1290 bucks including taxes and county permit.

Now, I know I don’t have to say this and that no matter how how good the technician is, they aren’t worth almost $2000 more than the competition.

PS – The picture below is the Manager’s first response to my review. Which I took a screen shot because I had this sneaking feeling he might change it. Guess what, he did. Said how sorry he was and that the first comment was a mistake while dictating the answer. Strange never saw quotes on a dictated message? You decide, doesn’t seem a tough choice.

  1. Michael & Son Services Avoid at all cost.

    These guys are crooks and liars. I had them come inspect my A/C. The tech said he thought it had a leak. Told me that I would have to agree to pay $341 for him to check for the leak, but if no leak was found, there would be no charge. Of course, he “found” a leak within the first 10 seconds of inspection.

    Then went on to tell me that fixing it would be over $1000. I had another company inspect the unit in order to get a second opinion. No leak. A few adjustments and all is well. Tried to get my money back from Michael and Sons.

    No go, even though the tech said there would be no charge and I have a signed report that there is no leak in the unit. Absolute crooks. Avoid at all cost.

  2. Michael & Son Services They did not do the panel up to code.

    I have dealt with Michael and sons with my primary residence and had 2 AC units, my sump pump replaced and some updating to my plumbing system. I had a great experience with these projects. So when my dad’s house needed some work I naturally called them.

    I scheduled an AC unit check. Somehow a fire was started with the electrical panel and the entire panel needed to be replaced. I called Michael and Sons because they gave me a prompt turn around time. They did not do the panel up to code. It was almost a week after the electrical panel was installed before the power was working correctly.

  3. It is really too bad

    Their work is good, their service is the worst!! I had appointments for my annual inspection between 12-4. AFTER 4 they called to reschedule. OK, stuff happens. We rescheduled for today between 12-4.

    I called and was told I was next up at noon. It is almost 5PM and I am still waiting!! I should charge them my hourly rate for the time I have wasted. It is really too bad, because their technicians are generally good, but their service makes them undesireable

  4. The installer said "if you don't like it then you can hire someone else"

    Delivered and installed gas range, microwave and dishwasher. Quoted me $280 to replace a 8 inch gas pipe and valve. After I paid $350 to have the unit installed! Mike and sons are a huge scam!

    And will rip you off at every turn. They quoted me for a door once at 4times the price of the second quote I got and went with. The installer said “if you don’t like it then you can hire someone else”

  5. Run Around

    This should be negative stars. I made an appointment for an electrician from Michael & Son Services on 15 April 2019. I explained in great detail exactly what I needed. The receptionist put me on hold to speak with the manager and came back confirming they could do the job. The appointment was made for 19 April in a window of 12-4pm, giving them a full work week to call me back if they had any concern. They even called me at 1040hrs on the morning of 19 April saying they could come earlier. I couldn’t but they confirmed again that the electrician would be at my house inside the window. As it got late, I called back at 2pm and was informed that he would be on his way in a bit but would be a little late. Then at 2:40pm I received a call from a floor manager (Greg) stating that they could not do the work.

    So on the day of the scheduled appt during the window of arrival after a full week, I was then informed that I lost a week and wasted a half-day off work only be told I wasted my time.

    For a company that supports the military which I have been for more than 20 years, this company is an absolute crock.
