I had a pin hole leak in my copper pipe causing a leak. Being the week-end not all companies are open. I called Aramendia and they were available. They advised they will come and look at my problem but would charge a trip fee (???) of $100+ just to look at it. If I chose them to do the work then they would deduct the trip fee (that should have told me something). What resulted is they charged $595 to cut a small hole in the sheetrock, cut about 6" of copper tubing and replacing with a type of plastic tubing, and soldered it together.
To add insult to injury, from the time the two guys walked in the door one of them tried to sell me a $4,100 water softner (I already have a water softner), wanted me to pay $225 year to be on their "A" list, etc... I finally asked him if he worked on commission. He advised he did not but it certainly appeared he was there to sell me something while his helper was o n the ladder doing the work. The work appears to be okay but my experience is it was way overpriced and the sales pressure more than I bargained for.
