    Responsible, Professional
    Michael Vargas is a true professional. We hired him to replace the shower head, faucet and all of the other hardware in our shower. We had already purchased a kit and just wanted him to install it for us. We could not do it ourselves because there was drilling and fitting involved due to the difference in type of hardware. For some reason our kit was missing two pieces that usually come with a kit. Michael ran out to grab the pieces for us at no extra charge. Because one of the pieces in our shower is not standard size, Michael had to order the piece. I paid him that day for the full price of the job and he told me he would call the next day to let me know when the missing part would arrive. Just like he said, his secretary called me the next day to let me know that the part had been ordered and that he would be able to install it next week. His level of communication and service throughout this job has been superb. I am very pleased with MVP Plumbing and will continue to use Michael for our future plumbing needs.

    Mike is a very professional, likable person. He represents his business with professionalism, honesty and integrity. His prices were very reasonable. We had two pipe clogs in different parts of our home. He worked hard at unclogging them and left the work areas clean. I will definitely use Mike again and recommend him to all.

    Mike worked with us to find and replace our old sink for a new one. He did a great job from start to finish and actually took the time to give recommendations for both sink and faucet. He got the old heavy cast iron sink out with ease and made the modifications for the new sink to fit. I would highly recommend him for any plumbing project you have.

    Save Money, Water, and Time with MVP!!
    Michael Vargas was prompt and fair with his initial bid. He even escorted me to Home Depot to select the perfect replacement toilet. In addition to completing the job quickly, Mixhael Vargas was able to fix a slow leak in my other bathroom with materials that he kept in stock on his truck. He rebuilt the interior if the tank with modern equipment . I look forward to calling on MVP, Michael Vargas Plumbing when I go to replace my 40 year old sinks this Fall.

    I hired Mr. Vargas for a bathroom sink faucet installation. I definitely recommend his service! I was initially on the fence whether to do the replacement myself or get somebody to do it, I'm so glad Michael did the job for me! Ran into some issues that I wouldn't have been able to resolve if I did the job by myself. Michael even stated some underlying issues that I wasn't aware of! He was very helpful and professional, couldn't ask for a better person in this trade. Can't wait to hire him for the next work!

    We were having issues with our plumbing, it was backed up. The toilet and the showers were draining slowly which meant our main line was backed up. They came the next day and addressed the situation. Michael suggested we install a cleanout and gave us a very good price.

    Shower installation in commercial building: Michael Vargas arrived promptly to give an estimate on the installation of a new pre-fab corner shower in our commercial site's second bathroom. His estimate was fair, and he agreed to work with his two-man crew primarily at night and starting the following evening. He had experience in solving a challenging plumbing issue in successfully determining the best location for the drain route. Mike is easy to work with, cheerful, respectful, and honorable. He returned a day later at my request to fix a problem at no additional charge. I recommend Mike's business MVP Custom Plumbing for your plumbing needs in the Sacramento area, and he mentioned he also serves the Tahoe area!

    I contacted MVP Plumbing via website "Thumb Tack" on behalf of an elderly disabled recipient who had a kitchen sink leak issue. Mike Vargas responded immediately. I explained the recipient was looking for a volunteer as she has no means to pay for professional services. Mike Vargas did not hesitate and said there will be no charge in this particular situation and will come by to see what he can do. Kudos to Mike Vargas, owner of MVP Custom Plumbing Co., to be willing to come out and volunteer his services to somebody he doesn't even know. Mr. Vargas was very courteous, professional and empathetic. He is an excellent example of what this world needs more of. Mr. Vargas is an asset to the community. Let's continue to support small businesses. On behalf of myself and Recipient Virginia Thank you very much for your time and effort. You are a great example of a noble man and your family should be proud of you for your deed and contribution to the community.
