Each of these complaints should be in writing to the state of michigan plumbing dept. they have put him in jail before & they need to do it again. Our state is a discrace for still allowing these poeple to operate.

Actually, Empire Plumbing Waterproofing Specialists LLC, is a fully licensed and insured company. I am aware of this info as they have just completed a job for me in the metro detroit area, and as such retained a plumbing permit through city offices registered to there name and the name of the gentleman who came to my house and repaired my issues. In addition to this the apartment complex that they maintained for me also requires them to present valid insurance for no more than 2 million dollars in liability. To go even further I contacted the State of Michigan and was informed that Empire Plumbing Waterproofing Specialists LLC is fully licensed to all state and municipal ordinances.

Empire Plumbing Waterproofing Specialists LLC performed a professional and outstanding job at your residence, which was subsequently inspected by the city of warren plumbing inspector; who in accordance with city ordinance issued an approval sticker for all work performed. In addition to performed said contactual scope of work, Empire Plumbing repaired an additional 40 ft of piping with no additional charge.

You then contacted Empire Plumbing approximately (3) months after work had been completed, indicating that water was coming into your basement, however upon response to your said claim on the very same day, Empire Plumbing representatives examined said area and found no water coming from concrete as was stated by homeowner.

Homeowner attempted to sue Empire Plumbing Waterproofing Specialists LLC, by stating that "the wrong job was performed and that no subsequent permit for work was pulled by Empire", the case of course was dismissed as Empire did perform the aforementioned work in a permitted professional manner.

Fortunately there is no credence for this post, however this site does allow posting of materials, however untrue, to be written and published by the most malicious slander and libel

Unfortunately, this site allows for the publication of slanderous libel with malicious intent, as a majority of these claims are unfounded lies.

Fortunately the State of Michigan and other outlets do not allow for the publication of this material without a standard of verification, which cannot be provided for as many of the people on this site such as the gentleman who created this thread issue false statements to drum up business, by slandering other companies.

Who is this? If in fact, Empire apparently "got you for 5000.00", why not contact the company, rather than state slanderous material on a non-verified public forum?

I really doubt that you know the real deal, especially considering the fact that you are posting on a thread created by a rival plumbing company, in order to soil Empire's legitimately good name. Furthermore, this thread allows for posters to maliciously slander and vehemently assassinate the good character of Empire inconspiculously behind false and assumed identities. For the record Empire has serviced 6,487 happy, repeat customers over the past 3 years! Thank you.

This is a very professional, and good hearted plumbing company. They are offer over 30 years of experience at a good cost to the customer.they do not cut corners, and will get any job done in a timely manner.every job has permits pulled and is inspected by a city official. The take pride in there work and respect every customer and there home. I am a 3 generation plumber.my family is has been in the plumbing business since the 40s. Empire is one of few that I myself would trust and refer to my own family..

Not very clean as far as clean up.
Sure can make a mess. But take the money and run.
They are fast at that.
Be smart, get another bid.
If they do the job, make sure they cover everything.
They have been know to scam people and insurance companies.
Look out for them. Be afraid. Very afraid.
Left a big mess in my bathroom and basement.
Whole has is full of dust and dirt.
Caution........you have been warned.

i made a grave mistake.these are great guys, they will work with you.
my last post meant nothing, i was just in a very bad mood.
wish i could delete my post, but i can't figure out how to do that.
thought they were scaming me, but i added wrong. go figure.
Tony is a great guy to work with. honest. and he will go out of his way to help you. so will his crew.
they did stuff for me at no charge. that never happens. at least not for me.
as far as the dust and dirt. well when they bust up your basement floor, you have to expect that.
even said they would help me clean it up. now who will do that inside you house?
like i said, bad day yesterday all the way around
and i took it out on the wrong people. my mistake....bigtime.
sorry guys.
had so much going on in my life had to let steam off somewhere. and these guys had to take the heat.
once again, i am sorry.

Who is this? Please do not post malicious comments behind an untitled guise but instead identify yourself or simply contact the company. This board has been identified as an extortionist attempt to improperly slander a company with unfounded material.

We had Anthony Detrapini,(Empire Sewer) claiming to be from Capital Plumbing, dig up our whole front yard in 2001 to replace old crock with a 6 inch sewer line. He pulled a permit, never had it inspected and had it covered up by the time we got home! OUR MISTAKE: not watching him. HIS MISTAKE: he dumped the broken sidewalk pieces in the hole and broke our water line (front yard had to be dug up AGAIN!! AND he used his brother's license and company truck. GOOD PART: We won the small claims court judgement to repair the water line. BAD PART: he never put in the new 6 inch sewer line. We found out when our basement backed-up and we had a DIFFERENT company come out with a camera!!!

We get the chance to have our front yard dug up again, WHOOPIE!!

Don't let either company anywhere near your home!!

Margaret I am afraid that you are completely wrong in this scenario, as Empire Plumbing did not exist in 2001. In fact, Empire did not come to fruition until 2005, rather than post slanderous and misleading comments on the internet I would verify your facts(as the company did not exist until nearly 4 years after you claim a job was completed at your residence) I do not understand why/how you would assume that Empire Plumbing completed any work for you. Furthermore, I fully expect that this statement be retracted as it is a malicious attempt at character assassination completely founded on falsehoods. Empire Plumbing operates as a fully licensed and insured company, in good standing within the community as well as the state.

Actually, Bruce (poser)
You will recall this Anthony; you misrepresented yourself as your brother's business CAPITAL PLUMBING in 2001 when you did this scam! Remember, you delayed and delayed court appearances, but we WON our small claims judgement at 44th District Ct. Case No. 03-76059-SC in April, 2004, when YOUR brother (the owner) found out and showed up at court...with a lawyer too!!! I remember he stated "that was my brother, Anthony, who did this job (scam) and he no longer works for me.
Then after 2004, was when YOU started scamming with YOUR OWN various businesses, EMPIRE just being one of them!!
Now, do you remember the sequence of events?.....or are there just TOO MANY SCAMS to remember?????

Tell me when this thread is updated:
