Introduction: In all honesty, not all customers can or will appreciate us. Only the educated customers. I grew up in the 70’s & 80’s listening to Sy Syms say just that during their tv advertisements: “The Educated Consumer, is Our best Customer”. Now, 5-6 decades later I can completely understand and agree with that statement. Only customers that have researched the cost of their particular project can truly appreciate what it is that we’re offering here at HEC Home Improvements and Plumbing. From their first contact with our Customer Service Staff, to our Dispatching Staff and then eventually Our Service Technicians that show up at their door, Everyone is Professional, Courteous, Well Spoken, Educated and Highly Skilled. Also, as an added bonus, our prices are always intentionally marked slightly below market value. “Why is that?” you may ask, “Because Above Average Service at a Slightly Below Average Price” has been what’s kept us busy since 1990. We will service all of your plumbing needs: We'll repair your drains and water pipes both inside and outside We'll clear your clogged drains. We'll replace or repair your water heater(s), gas or electric. We'll locate leaks and camera your sewers and drain lines We'll replace your faucets and your toilets We'll repair or replace your garbage disposal We'll repair or replace your dishwasher No job is too big or too small we

Sink or Faucet Installation or Replacement

Mr. Houston. Does quality work and he is very knowledgeable of his profession. He removed and replaced my pedestal sink, also replaced my toilet after I had some flooring placed. I would definitely recommend him.

Sink or Faucet Installation or Replacement

Very happy with the work today - remove old pedestal sink, install new one, install taps in another sink and change 3 toilet seats. All work was to a high standard and good value for money.

Sink or Faucet Installation or Replacement

an outstanding professional, detailed explanation of what was to be done during the repair. The team took the extra effort to obtain a replacement faucet for the defective item I had purchased for the original installation. Customer satisfaction seemed to be their primary concern in all aspects of the job. All future plumbing issues will be contracted with HEC should they be needed. Thanks,

Sink or Faucet Installation or Replacement

HEC Home Improvement did an outstanding job replacing my bathroom faucet and water line. The pro was very professional, keep me in the loop on everything, and arrived at my house as scheduled.

Toilet Installation or Replacement

HEC worked with us to arrange our installation projects, and everything went really smoothly. Houston delivered our toilet, installed it along with our bathroom sinks and faucets, and hauled away the old items for the best price I’d been offered for this project. My wife is very happy with the look of her bathrooms, and that’s enough for me to be happy. Thanks again Houston!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    At the early age of 11, I started on the weekends carrying the tool box of a local plumber who was also a family friend. And then I went on to a vocational high school for plumbing, heating, A.C. and refrigeration.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    I would advise that each customer not compare apples to oranges. We sometimes get messages of how customers get quotes from other Plumbers or other companies that are less than ours but then by the time you see the finished product you can clearly understand why they were less. It’s usually because they were less knowledgeable of the trade and therefore is misquoting your project’s required repairs or replacement needs. Misunderstanding can highly affect the way a materials list is constructed. Misunderstanding can highly affect the way an intended task is approached and therefore affect the outcome of the completed product. Our Standards are the the Standard in National Standard Code Book. Your job is being quoted based on what the code requires. Period. Following those standards can most times require every i dotted and every t crossed. So yes it may cost slightly more than that jackleg job but at least it’s done 100% correct, according to The National Standard Code.

No problem: we have pros for every job.
