Howard from Service Experts came to fix our hot water heater. He walked us through ordering all the parts which were under warranty, he was punctual, and worked quickly. In addition to giving us back hot water he was so personable. He talked to my kids the whole time and pretended to be Olaf from Frozen while they pretended to be Anna and Elsa. Great plumber and great person! Thank you!
