    This was my first time using Lester’s and I was more than pleased. The gentleman was on time, got right to work, solved my problem and even told me how to solve a different problem and save myself several hundred dollars. I couldn’t ask for better. Lester’s is now my go to for all plumbing

    Lester's Plumbing has provided us great service for years in Wake Forest. Most recently, we had a laundry list of items with a small remodel. They were prompt, worked with our schedule, courteous and reasonably priced. They are our go to for any plumbing needs. Highly recommend!

    Lester's Plumbing Service Inc had completed two services for my residence--replaced the outside hose faucets and installed a new water heater. In both instances, the plumbers were professional, efficient, and completed the work flawlessly. I have a sealed crawlspace; when the plumbers finished installing my new water heater, they took the extra effort and used some leftover sealing tape I had on hand to further seal in the bottom of the water heater--that was very impressive and unexpected. Lester's Plumbing has always arrived on time for the job with very little wait time from when I needed the service to the scheduled appointment. Kudos to the administrative staff who are very personable yet professional. Would highly recommend Lester's to anyone looking for quality, affordable plumbing services in our area!
