F.J. Bero and Company is a union plumbing and mechanical contracting company that has been a family-owned business since 1920.

Frank Joseph Bero brought F.J. Bero to Elgin, IL from Chicago and opened his first plumbing shop on Commonwealth Avenue behind the family home in 1920. After Frank’s death, his wife Mary and his sons, John and George continued to grow the company and developed a plumbing service business that became well-known for honesty and integrity in the Fox River Valley.

Upon their retirement in 1980 the third generation of Bero’s, John, took the company into the commercial building and contracting division of the plumbing world, while still catering to the residential service business that his father and uncle worked so hard to create.

The company moved to the industrial space they still occupy on Weld Road in the 1980’s. In 2004 John retired and the fourth generation of F.J Bero plumbers took over, his son Jeff Bero.

F.J. Bero & Company still focus on service-based integrity and quality workmanship in the commercial and residential plumbing market.

We work very hard to keep our prices competitive so you can fit our services into your budget.

We offer flat rate pricing so you'll know exactly what you'll be paying for any project.

Customer Testimonials

I would highly recommend their services and would definitely hire them again. Their technician, immediately identified a solution that others had missed, and was able to complete the repair. He was prompt, professional, and addressed all my concerns. The work was done ahead of schedule with no fuss. He gave me advice for the future, but never made me feel like he was trying to make a sale. This company puts customers ahead of profits and stand behind their work. Highly recommend!

We’ve used them 3 times in 5 years and they have always been professional and prompt with the service we needed.  One was for a kitchen sink fixture leaking and the others were to replace the flush valve on both toilets and also the toilet flappers.  All of our service calls were handled by different F. J. Bero plumbers and they all were professional, friendly and prompt.
They were recommended by our neighbor who has used them many times in his houses over his several years of living in Elgin.

We were experiencing problems with our pipes draining and backing up. It got so bad, I asked a friend who she would recommend. She gave me Bero’s number and I was shocked they got someone, very knowledgable and were in and out in just over an hour. Reasonable, especially since it was an emergency call.
