Professional, knowledgeable, and a serious pleasure to work with. Highly recommend !
Having a nephew in the plumbing and heating business in PA, we know that it's hard to be present and accommodating to customers with this type of work and constant decisions and people changing decisions. The crew installed Mitsubishi units in our home a few years ago and we had our own personal communication/compromise agreements to tend to that complicated it for Mr. Tienken. Just today a couple of the crew came in to service our furnace after its going out yesterday and were able to see what the problem was and order the new parts for it. In the meantime, we had called in for emergency service, but was able to get the furnace up and running in the meantime so it became a maintenance service call. We waited until this morning to make sure that the furnace would work through the night before calling Cliff to notify him of the change in the work order. Usually the actual work has to be assessed so it is hard to put a dollar number on the job ahead of time. Ballpark figures change. I think that maybe the Maytag commercials gave people wrong ideas. G.
Cannot fix anything properly. Sour puss nasty person. A joke in the plumbing world...they all laugh at him and say what a jerk he is. Run, don't walk from this excuse for a plumber.
I had several plumbing issues that needed addressing, so I called Cliff Tienken Plumbing. I've hired him before. I've tried overlooking it in the past, but let's face it: Cliff Tienken is a bit of an impersonal douche. Very flat personality. He always sounds angry or annoyed when dealing with customers. He has absolutely no liking for his job, and acts like he's doing you a favor. He seems to get enjoyment in leaving you hanging in an emergency. What'll generally happen when you call is you'll talk to him and he (begrudgingly) agrees to come out (doesn't give pricing if you ask for it), then changes his mind a minute later and has his assistant call you back to cancel. Most of the time, he won't even bother to call you back. He's an unprofessional, impertinent, unreliable snob. His son who works under him is slightly more polite, but like father, like son - no social skills. Cliff's own assistant can't blame us for going with someone else, she's fielded a lot of complaints. This guy hates his job (and quite obviously his life)... don't waste your time.
