Review 2 for Toilets and Plumbing Installation
from Summerfield, Fl
This installation was for a kitchen sink and faucet
This was a complete nightmare. Bad enough that I should be refunded my $249 installation fee. Plumbers didn't know what they were doing. Left sink "installed", but with 2" gap in back that I needed to repair myself. Sink is tilted forward - they couldn't get my faucet in properly so I had to purchase a new faucet and had my own plumber install it along with a new disposal which I bought from the plumber's supply not Home Depot. Your contractor's services were absolutly awful and will never ever use your installation services again. STILL BELIEVE MY $249 INSTALLATION FEE SHOULD BE REIMBURSED.
I could not have asked for a better experience. After a few weeks visiting my local (Jersey City, NJ) Home Depot (and going online) to decide which toilet and vanity sink I wanted, I placed an order in store. The process was easy. They were able to set up an installation appoinment within four days. On that day, the installers were courteous, on time, and professional. It's been three weeks since and both the toilet and vanity work incredibly well and look even better. It was a fabulous experience that I would not hesitate to try again for other fixtures in my bathhroom that I need replacing.
It took over 2 weeks after I paid for the flooring contractor to finally find the time to do my floor. He called at 6PM on a Tuesday wanting to do the job the following day.
Installer showed up the next day with no materials. Home Depot was paid by me to deliver them and never did. Installer had to go to Home Deport to get the materials.
Installer did a good job but due to being delayed on the start had to return the next morning to finish the job. I called on Wednesday to get the plumber out on Thursday to reinstall my toilet (Home Deport was supposed to do this?) Plumber could not make it to my house until Friday between 4 and 8 PM. Finally called at 9:45 PM. Couldn't make it until 10:45 PM. Rescheduled for the next day between 1 and 3 PM. Plumber showed up at 3:30 PM.
Short summary: Plumbers were very efficient and proactive. Installation was timely and professional.
Home Depot failed at every phase of this project. Original order had been placed incorrectly. I was repeatedly told incorrect information. Product was delivered broken - twice (once discovered while in transit, once during installation). Stated due dates were routinely missed.
The positive score above for 'Customer Service' is intended for Liz at corporate. Everyone I interacted with at the local store warranted a zero.
I have no problem with the quality of the product or the installation, but the overall experience with Home Depot was disappointing.
----------------- 10 August - Visited store to purchase two toilets and coordinate installation. Was told that the toilets were 'in stock' in the local warehouse and arranged to have them delivered to my residence. I was also told to call the store once they arrived to schedule the Plumbers.
12 August - Plumbers called to schedule an appointment. Toilets had not yet been delivered, but installation was scheduled for 4 September (3 weeks out - plenty of time for them to arrive from the local warehouse, right?)
13 August - Called Home Depot to determine status of order. Was told that they were scheduled for delivery on SUNDAY, 17 August. The Sunday delivery was questioned and I was told that Home Depot would contact me to verify delivery date.
16 August - Called Home Depot to determine status of order. I was now told that the toilets were being delivered to the STORE on 18 August and that I would need to collect them.
16 August - Home Depot called me back to correct their previous statement. Now, they were to be delivered to my residence on 25 August.
25 August - Took the day off work to receive delivery. No delivery or phone call explaining why there was no delivery.
26 August - Called Home Depot to determine status of order. Current story is that only one toilet had been ordered and was being shipped from somewhere other than local warehouse. Status of second toilet was an absolute mystery.
26 August - Called Home Depot to speak with Manager on Duty in order to cancel the order and obtain refund. Was informed they could not cancel order because I would need to physically return the toilets (which I haven't received) in order to get my money back.
Duty Manager stated that they would follow-up with delivery company at 8:00am next morning to verify status.
27 August - Called Home Depot corporate service department requesting to cancel order and receive refund.
Corporate negotiated with the store and they finally began getting organized. I was refunded the installation fees and two new toilets were being ordered and shipped to the store. Staff from the store were to personally deliver them to my residence.
Between 27 August and 24 September - One toilet was broken in shipping. Replacement ordered and shipped to store. Eventually, two new toilets WERE delivered to my residence and left in the original packaging awaiting installation.
24 September - Installation Day! (also another day I had to take off work) Old toilet was removed and the first toilet was taken from the box - broken. Second toilet was then installed to replace the one that had been removed and a new one had to be ordered.
29 September - Another day off work to accommodate this project. By mid-day, the Plumbers called to inform me that the replacement toilet (for the broken one) had NOT been received and they would not be coming today.
6 October - Replacement toilet finally arrived with the Plumbers and was installed without issue.
Installer was very professional. Only snag could have been the fact that no one told me I would need a power cord for the disposal. Seems like it should come with one. Plumber had a used one in his truck that we used.

Review 11 for Toilets and Plumbing Installation
from Lake Geneva, WI 53147, USA
Remove existing floor & install floor in kitchen and bathroom.
When I met with the person from Home Depot in the store to discuss what I needed to have done, I told the man specifically, that my bathroom floor may be rotten underneath the floor so I would need someone to possibly rebuild the "subfloor", the floor beneath the linoleum and veneer. He assured me that if the "subfloor" needed to be rebuilt that it could be done but would add more to the cost as they would not know the cost until they saw what was needed. When Crew 2 showed up Kevin kept insisting that the current flooring did not need to be torn up, I assume to make it easier for him. He was alone for the first 2 days he was here and ususally has a partner but his partner's mother was in the hospital. I finally convinced him that it did need to be torn up as there may be a problem with the bathroom "subfloor" and the refrigerator would not fit under the cabinet if another floor was put on top. The estimate stated that the floor was to be removed before the new one was placed. Kevin removed the floor in the kichen the first two days but left the bathroom. I then had to find someone to come in and re-do the bathroom floor. It just so happened the man who installed my dishwasher also does side jobs and was able to rebuild the bathroom floor. If I would have known that Home Depot was not going to do the whole job I never would've signed with them. Very disappointed that I was promised Home Depot would do a complete job only to find that they do not. I had to take an additional day off of work, after already taking 3 days off. I also was disappointed with the service provided by Crew 2 and felt like I had to keep after Kevin to do his job.

Review 12 for Toilets and Plumbing Installation
Installer worked well with us and the install was excellent
The installer was courteous, professional and extremely knowledgeable. Being in a condo unit, we ran into some trouble locating the water shut off valve. Throughout the entire process, he was patient and did not hesitate to be of assistance in any way he could.
I am glad a Home Depot installer did the Installation. The installer ran into problems and had to get parts out of his van. I would have had to make trips to the store and spent all day on the installation. The installer was courteous throughout.
Very pleased with the finished product and installation. Good communication on process, product, and time frame for installation. While very pleased, be sure to allow for some additional costs. Would recommend.
