If you ever come in contact with this scumbag run the other way. He tries to pawn himself off as a reputable plumber, but he ripped me off and I can give you a list of other people he ripped off. Do not give him money up front. He will take it and either never finish the job or do a very substandard job. Not to be trusted. Usually on drugs, cocaine and pot. Use to work in the Park Ridge area. Closed his company Albergo Mechanical due to trying to outrun lawsuits. Now openning another business in Niles Ill with a partner to do commercial plumbing in Chicago. Not using his name to avoid lawsuits.

Park Ridge, Illinois

You the one on drugs. Take your anger on Judge not on Plumer

I live and I love Jay Albergo and I know He DOES NOT do drugs or drinks ever.  Alcohol is not allow in our home.

God and I know who Jay Albergo is and he is the best.   I will pray to God to forgive you for accusing someone about lies.

First of all in the comment that I never paid the final payment to Albergo, that is correct. He failed to tell the customer that he never finished the job. He owed me an air conditioning compressor and never delivered. He was to put in a 3 1/2 ton plennum as per contract, and slipped in a 3 ton. In the installation of the air conditioning duct work, the supplies were hooked up to where the returns should have been installed and visa versa. He never finished trimming out all the sinks and toilets in the house. The air furnace unit that was installed in the attic kept short cycling as it was installed wrong. He was hardly ever there to supervise the job. With all that I had to repair an correct and parts I had to buy more was far more that I owed him. He should be paying me. Also there was damage to electrical and structure that had to be repaired as his workers had no regard for the other trades. He also lied about the judge. I tried to sue him but had to withdraw because he closed his company and openned under another name. I was told by my attorney I could not go after him as there was not company. And finally he did threaten me and there is a report on file at the Park Ridge Police Dept. I have records, witnesses, and proof of all my statements.

Best Plumber In Illinois!

AUTHOR: Harvard92 - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Monday, August 03, 2009
A friend of mine HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Jay to install a flood control system after a serious flood completely ruined everything in my expansive furnished basement. My friend said only positive and wonderful things about him, he was very pleasant on the phone, and able to come out to my house and asses the job later that day. I was shocked to see this previous remark when I googled his name after already scheduling the appointment & even more astonished that a dear friend of mine would recommend a guy who had such a negative comment online. He showed up exactly when he said he would, assessed the job and gave me a detailed explanation of why, how and when to start/finish the job. The price was much less than i had expected to pay and he was extremely clean and made this horrible situation less stressful by ensuring the preventative measures he was taking so it would not happen again in the future. He not only became our household plumber but became a friend. When I asked him about the comment online he was embarrassed and explain that the client refused to pay him for his work and when the judge declared that Jay was in the right and won the case he childishly wrote libel remarks on this website. It is pathetic that such human beings exist and would do that to an individual as wonderful as Jay Albergo. He truly is a highly educated, world class union plumber, and most of all caring individual. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Jay and his company for all residential, commercial, and industrial plumbing.
