"I’ve had a very good experience with them. They’ve serviced my AC and boiler. The boiler required some repairs and they were able to come out quickly and get my heat back on. Jeff was a huge help."

"I wanted to express in writing my appreciation for the thorough review provided today by Raul on the two A/C systems I have under contract with you. He was clearly comprehensive in his check-up on my older (upstairs) unit and fully explained his recommendations to me. On one issue in particular, he pointed out that my compressor on that unit was not level and the problem that could cause. He then leveled the unit saving me that work. I found Raul to be polite, considerate and, most importantly, thorough in his servicing of my A/C systems. It’s service such as this that keeps me as a John C. Flood contract customer. Thank you."

"We have used JC Flood for all of our plumbing needs since our new home purchase in 2011and have been more than pleased with their service, responsiveness and prices. So when deciding to upgrade our master bathroom, they were the only company we considered. JC Flood transformed our bathroom from drab and outdated to bright and modern. We couldn't be happier...thanks JC Flood!"

"I am writing to commend Walter, an electrician who installed two bathroom exhaust vents for us. I have been trying for two weeks to find out what kind of vents the Alexandria inspector wanted and someone to install them. Walter looked over the job and when he came back to do it a day or so later he had the foresight to stop and get a 2nd vent despite arriving at 6: 15pm after a long day. It turns out that it was necessary, since the joist spacing did not allow one vent to service two exhausts. As a result he completed the job in one hour. He also had the presence of mind to have me take photos of the ducts and vents when the ceiling was open to show the inspector. Many times a customer's perception of a company comes from the people who directly service him. Walter definitely delivers on that end. He’s a good face in the field for John C. Flood."

"Some quick feedback based on another winning visit from Dale this morning: not only do I dig the "heads up" e-mail including the name and pic of the technician scheduled to come out but the new tablet-based invoice stuff is very cool! Well done! Thank you."

"I have used this company for 5 years and overall I am pleased. Wonderful telephone customer service. The technicians are knowledgeable, and pleasant. I renewed my annual contract without hesitation."

"Estimator Dan Mayo provided a free estimate and video snake analysis of my main sewer line. He was very nice. I had been told that I needed a full replacement of my sewer drain by a different company, but Dan said that he wouldn't recommend a replacement at this time. It was refreshing to hear a plumber explain that I need LESS work than I expected... As most of these guys shoot for the moon and tell you to fix everything every time."

"I called John C. Flood around 9 o'clock am and the plumber was at my house 2 hours later. He was very professional and knowledgeable. He diagnosed the problem, gave me a price and made the necessary repairs. I was extremely pleased with my overall experience with the company and will definitely use them in the future."

"I have been using them for several years. I like them very much because the plumbers are very capable and organized. The office people are also nice, especially a lady named Maggie. They always come in time. Yesterday, I called them for some emergency work. Bobby, the plumber, was very professional and friendly. He gave me some useful suggestion after his work. He cleaned the site well, too. It is nice to have a name whom I can rely on anytime."

"I wanted thank the folks at John C. Flood and in particular Dan Mayo. They did an excellent and thorough inspection of my homes sewer system. Dan's expertise and professional knowledge saved me a considerable amount of money by providing a second opinion. He explained to me all the details that I needed to know. I would highly recommend them and will most definitely be calling them in the future."

"I've had a very good experience with them. They've serviced my AC and boiler. The boiler required some repairs and they were able to come out quickly and get my heat back on. Jeff was a huge help."

"John C. Flood installed a new furnace in our home this week. The sales and installation process could not have gone better. The installers were on time, very professional and left the utility room in our house cleaner than when they arrived. Homeowners are always wary of these kind of jobs and I'm very happy this work was completed in such a first class manner. My wife and I will be recommending John C Flood to our neighbors and friends."

"Damon Hatcher was awesome - quick, professional and gave us some super easy maintenance tips moving forward. My first call if we have any plumbing problems again - no doubt. Two thumbs up!"

"Best news @johncfloodva retrieved my ruby/diamond pendant! Said good thing I had mucky stuff in my drain to catch it! That was a close call. So happy as pendant is sentimental! "

"I would like to thank you and your crew for doing a really outstanding job, under rather challenging circumstances. I will be very happy to recommend your company to anyone who has needs as I did. The manner in which my situation was evaluated and resolved was very professional. Again, thank you for a very well done job."

"Thank you very much for getting my heating system running. This gentleman was very polite and very courteous. I will use John C. Flood again and again."

"I cannot tell you how satisfied I am with your employee Luke. He was so thorough and professional, just a joy. He told me everything I need and what to expect in the future. Thanks again for hiring such an outstanding employee."

"I have sold my home in Springfield VA. I can't leave without thanking you for the wonderful and professional work you did over the years. The last service call was in June 2012, and Bobby was so great. I highly recommend you to the new owner (Cc'd) and know you will continue to provide good service (not just on plumbing and HVAC, but on all the services your company provides."

"I've had a very good experience with them. They've serviced my AC and boiler. The boiler required some repairs and they were able to come out quickly and get my heat back on. Jeff was a huge help."

"Dave L. was courteous, friendly, prompt and just overall very professional. I really appreciated his concise summary of the different energy management plans and highlighting the differences as well as his recommendation for my home."

"They did a great job. I worked with a guy named Damon and he was awesome, thorough and loves his job, from what I could tell. Honest, too."

"I really appreciate the quick response yesterday and I want to commend the technician,(Alex) for doing an outstanding job. He was very professional and thorough and he did a real good job repairing my air conditioner. I will not bother to call anyone else in the future if the need arises. I hope I do not require your services in the near future but, if I do you will be the first that I call. Again thank you, it was much appreciated."

"New ROCK group - "Harry and the Floods!" Great work. Great communication. You really do "DO IT ALL!" Thanks!"

"Thanks, John C Flood. My new heat pump system is working great. The Evolution is so quiet and efficient. Because it cools quickly, it doesn't run for hours -- it cools and shuts off. Thanks to everyone involved for a job well done."

"I rely on John C. Flood for the majority of my plumbing and air conditioning needs. They have been there for me when I call. Most recently, Thursday, July 5th I had a call into John C. Flood and M.K. (Mike) responded and dealt with my problem with the utmost care and professionalism. Not only did he fix my problem, he explained in detail and showed me the cause of the problem. Explained what needed to be done and showed me when he finished what had been done. Thank you M.K. (Mike) and John C. Flood once again."

"I wanted to thank you for sending George to my place. He was so perfectly polite-and he fixed the problem. I immediately recommended John C. Flood and George to my neighbor and you were to go there today. Thank you for such great service! I won't be going back to the "old guys" I used to use!"

"I just wanted to let you know what a great experience I had with you all today. I called at 6am and was immediately taken care of. Not long after I got a call from servicemen that they were on way. They came in, fixed what was wrong, explained it all to me and gave me tips for keeping my unit in good shape. You have a customer for life!"

"Hooray for John C Flood--magical! My compressor decided to die yesterday morning (6/20/12) and I didn't figure it out until 9:15pm (we rarely use our AC, except when it is really hot, and I was out much of the day....). Pat called me back at 6:45am today and Superman Dale was on site by just after 9am. He quickly diagnosed the problem, gave me my options, and even a blown transformer in our n'hood (cutting power for about an hour) didn't stop Dale! This is a superb example of professional service. Look no further than John C Flood!"

"Jason has been servicing my HVAC system for several years and he is excellent. I have been using Flood for at least 20 years (could be longer) and you can count me as a satisfied customer."

"He did a great job! super nice and very efficient and helpful. He gave me tips on how to keep this from happening in the future. Thank you!!"

"Bobby was fast, efficient, friendly and I was very impressed. I will recommend your services to family and friends."

"I'm impressed! First time user of your services and not only did I get polite and professional service from first phone call to completed service, I got same day service (for a non-emergency) at a reasonable price. Thank you."

"I am writing to inform you of the stellar service job that your crew performed at my house last week. Daniel, Shane, and Pat went beyond my expectations to perform the work in a timely, expert manner. Our heat had been out for 5 nights and those guys put in extra hours on Thursday to see the project through and ensure that we would not go without heat for yet another night. Nate was also very responsive, informing, and did not attempt to pressue me into any specific type of purchase, which I appreciate. The crew was very courteous and proactive, even pointing out other potential problems with my overall system design and duct efficiency. I commend you and your company for exhibiting such a high degree of professionalism and competence."

"I cannot tell you how satisfied I am with your employee Luke. He was so thorough and professional, just a joy. He told me everything I need and what to expect in the future. Thanks again for hiring such an outstanding employee."

"We recently had your electrician Walter Toledo to our apartment to fix a problem with a main breaker. I've never experienced such good service from an electrician. Walter was on-time, friendly, and capable. He was able to track down a problem that other electricians hadn't in the past. Thanks for the good work!"

"Your team did a great job on my big messy urgent plumbing problem. I will look up all their names on the work order, but Roberto just left. Great job by all. Thanks and happy new year."

"I wanted to share my experience today with your technician, Brandon. He arrived within the timeframe expected, explained the issue and how he was going to resolve it so that I understood, discussed the costs before he began work, and worked quickly to make the repairs. He was polite and helpful. Like past technicians who have come to my home from your company, I felt he did a great job and would not hesitate to recommend your company, and him specifically, to others. Thank you!"

"Your plumbing team, Bruce and Kevin, did an amazing job on the installation of my new boiler. They took a tangled mess of old pipes and boiler and made everything brand new. Their attention to detail was what impressed me most. Some of the pipes had to be exposed in my basement den and they were run straight and cleaned up before Bruce and Kevin called it a day. I appreciated their services and John C, Flood has earned another loyal customer."

"I just wanted to say thank-you for great Memorial Day service from Maggie (office) and Jason (technician)."

"I am pleased and honored to write this letter of commendation regarding the work done and advice given by Kevin Kincaid. Kevin's actions are the model of a relationship between service industry workers and their customers."

"You came by our house 2 days ago. You were right about the liner being the issue with my sewage line. The county came out and fixed it yesterday. You saved me thousands and I can't thank you enough. I really appreciate you shooting me straight. It seemed all the other plumbers I talked to were more concerned with getting the work than looking out for me. Even though it was of no benefit to you, you told me the truth and suggested I get the county involved. It is refreshing to see this kind of good business practice still exists. We will definitely look to flood for any future plumbing work. Thanks again. Happy new year to you and your family."

"I am so appreciative of how Kevin, Bruce, Jeff and Danny were able to install my heating system in such a professional manner. They were all so pleasant and worked diligently and efficiently in the installation and the cleaning up of everything once the work was completed! There are very few times that you have people who will go out of there way to help you. I feel that they all did. I thank your company and your professionals for going over and above their duties so that we would have heat. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all."

"I can't say enough good about the two men who are working on our house. They worked hard to get us heat last night. We had only one night of cold. They've worked cleanly and well. I don't know the supervisor relationships at Flood. If you're not their supervisor and somebody else is, please forward this to that person. A contractor business lives and dies by satisfied or unsatisfied customers. They've earned you guys our loyalty, and I'll be sure to let friends know as well. Thank you."

"Allow me to express my appreciation for the prompt, efficient and courteous service I received today. One of our air conditioning units went out last night. I called our regular air conditioning company, but they couldn't come until Monday afternoon. On a friend's recommendation, I then called John C. Flood, and spoke to Cindy. She scheduled a technician from noon to 3 PM today. The technician, Tom Goldsmith arrived shortly before noon. I'm a journalist and my wife is a college professor. We know nothing about engineering. We feared the worst. But Tom advised us that we only needed a new capacitor. He had one in his truck, and promptly installed it. He then advised us that our air conditioning unit was built in 2000, and should last 15-18 years. We learned a lot about air conditioning units from Tom. We also learned a lot about courtesy. Thank you so much for the wonderful service."

"During the last heat wave our A/C unit went out and we needed someone to quickly and professionally fix the problem. We have nothing but great things to say about John C Flood if Virginia and its entire staff. Shane, the Service Technician, was very knowledgeable and walked us through the process of determining what unit was best suited for us. Bill and Walter, the installers, were equally professional and personable and worked non-stop to insure that we got our new unit up and running."

"I wanted to thank the team at your office for the excellent response and service you provided. I called Saturday with a broken air conditioning unit. Tom Goldsmith responded Sunday morning, the part was ordered Monday and installed Tuesday afternoon. With upper 90 degree weather, you can imagine just how horrible it was at the house, with a 90 degree temperature! Tom was also very courteous and professional. The recent lack of care and service by another HVAC company was quite deplorable. I’m so pleased to have discovered your company, and will do business with you in the future. Thanks again, hope your day is going well."

"Mr. Edelstein worked from early morning to late night to fix our electrical system. He is intelligent, diligent and knows his stuff. It was a privilege to meet him and work with your company. I called at night and he was there the next morning bright and early. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!"

"I wanted to express my HUGE thanks for your quick and great work Wednesday when my heater broke. You guys had Dave here within about 90 minutes of my morning worried call, despite the bad roads and how very busy you likely were all day and week. My house was so cold and I was super worried. Dave saved the day and figured out about 4 different problems with the unit and got the parts from 2-3 different places as I finally had to go to work for a few hours, He assured me I'd be taken care of and even called my cell at 4 to day I could rest inside knowing I would come home to a warm house. I had been so scare and worried that it wouldn't be fixed, but Dave worked so very hard and now I can go into thie weekends blizzard knowing all is warm and well!"

"I cannot thank you and your staff enough for such a fast, efficient response to my pleas for a new air conditioning unit.... We had already spent a day and evening without air conditioning and it was going on another day of record high temperatures when you came to our rescue. As a business owner, I was pleased to see that another business cared about service as much as we do."

""I love John C. Flood of Virginia, let me count the ways!!! Every aspect of my recent move to a tiny, 85-year-old house was frustrating EXCEPT for the installation of my new furnace and hot water heater, thanks to the wonderful professionals you have working at Flood.... THEY ARE THE BEST AT WHAT THEY DO AND HOW THEY DO IT! I feel I got more than my money's worth and I will not hesitate to evangelize the greatness of product and service I received. Please accept this thank-you from a highly satisfied customer.""

"Quality service by a company with honest, conscientious billing - what a rare find!... Thank you, John C. Flood, for heat, but more importantly, for peace of mind."

"John C. Flood has my highest recommendation. I appreciate the very fast response ... in getting my new boiler installed in two days... You guys are all awesome!"

"... What started out as a small leak became a small flood. That afternoon... my calls for help were answered. Your crew of angels... quickly tackled the problems."

"... I dealt with your company for the first time this past Tuesday... when I experienced a heating problem. I wanted you to know how satisfied I am with the timely and efficient manner in which my situation was handled. Your staff's personal handling of each step made me feel comfortable and confident in the decision I had to make."

"...Every contact we have had with Flood... has been handled in a thoroughly competent, professional and pleasant manner. What a welcome experience... to find a company that places customer service first."

"I recently had the wonderful experience of your prompt and courteous service in my home. Let me say I will heartily recommend your company to all my friends, family and neighbors."

"Thank you all for the fast service. And I wanted to let you know that Herb is wonderful. Friendly , efficient and he cleans up after himself- I love it!. Have a great day and thanks again!"

"I am writing to commend three of your employees, Herb Thacker, Jay and Maggie. Herb did a very good job installing a new sump pump for me. Jay came by a few days later to fix a leak in the check valve for the sump pump. Both men were very polite, courteous and professional. Maggie was the first person I talked to each time I called your company and she was so nice and polite and accommodating. Each time I called she scheduled service for the me that very same day. I hope you are aware that these three employees are very good assets for your company. I highly recommend your company to friends. Thanks so much for such good service."

"Shane is a wonderful employee. I have lived in this house for 53 years and I've had many, many repairmen here and he is very polite and patient. He knows what he is doing and I just wanted you to know I appreciate that, I appreciate your company and I appreciate your employee."

"John C. Flood of VA Technicians and employees. I want to thank you for your courteous and caring people who installed my new furnace on October 28, 2011. This house has never been so warm and they "cleaned up after themselves. You don't find that very often now a days. They showed up when they said they would and gave a "good time" estimate for completing the work. Thank you again, very, very much!"

"Punctual (early, even), knowledgeable, friendly, checked all radiators to see if they needed bleeding, as w/as boiler check. I bought an annual service inspection for a reasonable price."

"Quality service by a company with honest, conscientious billing - what a rare find! Thank you, John C. Flood, for heat, but more importantly, for peace of mind."
