“Ivan was a very friendly, honest, knowledgeable guy; he happily shared insights on a future gas line job I was contemplating. I'm bummed he moved up to Santa Cruz, because it can be hard finding a skilled, affordable plumber with a pleasant demeanor.”

“Ivan Patterson is the best plumber I have ever hired. He is reliable, knowledgeable and experienced, honest, pleasant to deal with, and quick and thorough, yet always willing to explain details about his approach to each job. And prices are fair and reasonable. I highly recommend him to anyone.” Grade: A

“Ivan came over last minute to fix a problem that I had spent days trying to fix myself. It turned out to be complicated, but because Ivan has 20 years of experience he was eventually able to come up with a fix to the problem. He was very professional, even sending a follow up note in the mail thanking my wife and I for the business. Class act. Knowledgeable professional.”

“It went very well, Ivan is amazing. Very professional, makes sure the job is complete and everything is in order. He was responsive, prompt and very easy to work with, and the price was reasonable. I was not in town so all this was done remotely and he did a great job. He is honest and communicative and I felt like I could completely trust him. I plan to use Patterson Plumbing from now on. Highly recommended.” Grade: A

“I called three plumbers, never got a call back. Ivan was recommended by a friend, so I gave him a call. He restored my opinion in plumbers! Came out on time the day he said he would, and installed a new water heater for a fair price. I would, and have, recommended him to anyone. I deleted the other numbers from my phone. Thanks again Ivan!”

“I initially contacted Ivan to have him come do a plumbing inspection for my house. He showed up on time, listened to my concerns about a few things, and then went about inspecting all aspects of the plumbing. When he was done he explained the various issues to me and gave me his opinions on what he thought I might should do. I never felt any pressure from him -- he seemed fair and balanced, as opposed to pushing me to do something that really didn't need to be done. 

Within a day or two I received a full written estimate from him for each of the things we discussed. On two of the items (installing pressure regulator and installing new shower valve cartridge), his prices were better than what another plumber had verbally quoted me several months earlier. I set an appointment with Ivan to have three of the things done. 

On the day we agreed on, he showed up on time, got the work done, and left the place clean. It's been a couple of weeks, and everything seems to be in working order. He did quality work at a fair price. I would definitely recommend him to all Angie's List members for plumbing work in the Santa Cruz area.” Grade: A
