Frequently Asked Questions
We don’t charge by the hour, we charge by the job. Our quotes are based on the average time it takes a qualified technician/licensed plumber to do the labour (also includes parts). We use a standard price guide and quote the price before the work begins. Before any work is done, we agree on a price the customer will pay regardless of how long it takes to do the work, even if it takes longer than anticipated.
Yes, we specialize in residential work and cover all aspects of your home’s comfort systems including but not limited to:
- remodels, new installations, additions
- residential plumbing
- heating and air conditioning
We do not do new construction – only service, repair & equipment replacement in existing buildings.
We do light commercial, and light industrial.
Trip charges cover the cost of the licensed plumber or technician arriving in a fully stocked truck and performing a quick diagnosis of the problem. Sometimes more than a short diagnosis is required depending on the problem, and extended diagnosis charges might be applicable, but this is rarely the case. If we don’t have the part we need, or something has to be special ordered to do your repair, we’ll return with no additional trip charges. Other companies charge by the hour and they start the clock when they get in the truck to come to your location, and some charge for the ride home too. Quotes on new installations for heating & A/C equipment, sewer, geothermal heating/cooling, and solar thermal hot water systems are free.
Phone quotes are often inaccurate and almost always change when the technician evaluates the job in person. We liken phone quotes to trying to guess someone’s age over the phone; you can’t even get in the ballpark without seeing the person. Same goes for quotes, we can’t get it right without seeing exactly what’s going on. Give us a call and we’ll come out to assess your situation and give you an accurate quote.
We have been serving the Western Suburbs of Chicago for 10 years.
Yes, we do. We accept American Express, MasterCard, Discover, and Visa. Checks and cash are also welcome!
The owner of the property must authorize any repairs or upgrades. Unless your lease agreement specifically states that you are allowed to authorize work of this type, we won’t be able to take care of your issues without authorization.
Yes. We are licensed, bonded, and insured to protect you, the home and business owner, as required by the state of Illinois. We send only licensed plumbers to address your service call. Each plumber is individually licensed and Wiz Plumbing Services carries a contractor’s license, which is required by the state. For your peace of mind, we drug test and background check all employees. We do not hire subcontractors to work in your home.

I had (5) different plumbing companies come out to give me quote on doing a full bathroom in my basement. Derek from Wiz Plumbing came out and gave the best price and really had a vision for how it would work given the small space in the basement. I have had some really bad experiences with contractors over the last few years doing poor work and having terrible people skills, so it was refreshing to deal with Derek as he was a class act. I was blown away at the work Wiz did for me, you can really see the attention to detail that is lacking now days with some contractors. I plan on using Wiz for future projects, trust me and just call these guys out before you think of hiring anyone else.

Wiz plumbing had done close to a dozen plumbing project for me so far. Derek and his employees show up on time, keep the job site clean and do great work. Jay B. Brenner / Remodeling, Corp
Derek came out to bury my sump pump line and replace a new sump pump. He came and did the job quickly and filled in with dirt where my old pump spilled out leaving the yard looking better than it did before the installation. He was very courteous and pleasant. We looked over the over work together and discussed it. He said if I wasn’t happy with the outside work he would come back, it was guaranteed for 6 years. I would hire him again for sure
