“Pete was very nice and professional, and did a good job keeping things clean. He explained everything he was doing, and what the issues with the toilets seemed to be. When replacing them, he said they do not caulk in the bottom because that results in you not knowing if you have a leak, which is exactly what happened to us after the last time we replaced one toilet years ago (we got leakage into the ceiling below instead of seeing some water in the bathroom). The new toilets that they recommended work very well so far. Kerrigan’s rates are high, but from our experience you’ll get very good quality work and responsiveness, which for us justified the price, because we really don’t want to have a plumber back to fix something again.

“We have a number of very large trees and get root clogging. The first time was just after moving in, when sludge came up through the basement drain and we called in an emergency. We now we use them to rod every 18-24 months as a preventative measure. In a nutshell: reliable, competent and professional. They were prompt and despite some very heavy root build-up the first time we had it done, their equipment got through it.”
– Heli J. of Wilmette
“Kerrigan Plumbing has been my exclusive choice for plumbing services for more than 25 years. They are professional, experienced, thorough, and perform work on time, within budget and they do a fantastic job. This year along, they added drained tile to and hooked up to our extensive sump-pump system to the last section of our basement which had not been handled this way. Kerrigan was neat (!), clean (!) despite the concrete drilling. From major work such as this to fixing a broken toilet, Kerrigan is the plumbing contractor for any job, big or small. I have used other plumbers in the area, but Kerrigan is a cut above all others. A+++++ plumbing contractor. From start to finish, no matter how big the project or how small, Kerrigan is superb. They help in emergencies, they have a “leak detective” who found a leak in one of our showers that has caused some major damage on a lower floor, and they are on time, within budget, and simply do a superb work.”
