Customer Review

I will recommend Golden Rule to all my family and friends...

JD from Golden Rule was our technician for our emergency plumbing needs and I’m so thankful we happened to get him. JD was friendly, courteous, on time, cleaned up after himself, and truly cared about what was best for us and our situation. He took the time to explain everything and gave multiple options for go forward steps. I personally feel he went above and beyond his job duties to ensure we were in a good place when he left. I will recommend Golden Rule to all my family and friends and won’t hesitate to utilize them again should we ever need a plumber in the future.
