Complaint / review text:
We called Old Republic to come out and fix a broken ice maker. They reported that ice makers are not covered. We have a leaking sink in our bathroom, and two toilets that run intermittently, fortunately they said these are covered. They sent a nice plumber out, but the plumber said he had never seen this type of sink before and that he would have to call to see if he could get parts. He looked at the first toilet and reported that it was in good shape and did not need to be fixed. He went out to the truck to call about parts for the sink.
He came back in after an hour and said that old republic would not cover the sink because he felt the leak was in the sink and not in the pipes. He could not see the leak because of the position of the pipe coming into sink from the wall. He even asked if I had a small retractable mirror so he could angle the mirror up to see what the problem was. I stated that I did not have a mirror like that. But he was able to make the diagnosis despite not being able to see the actual problem. He then proceeded to replace a seal on the toilet that he had just stated did not need to be fixed. I feel he did this because I was becoming agitated that nothing seemed to getting done. He then said I needed to pay a $55 dollar service fee which I refused to pay.
Good to know what $450 buys you from Old Republic. Absolutely nothing.in speaking to Old Republic, they never offered to send someone else out to get a second opinion. All they kept saying is it is not covered and that I owed $55 dollars which I told them I refused to pay. And the plumber left before looking at the second toilet. Old Republic said I would have to pay another $55 dollars if they sent another plumber out to look at the second toilet. What a joke.
