Heating System Installation or Replacement

I contacted Josh to get a quote on replacing 2 boilers and 2 water heaters. He came out to provide an estimate and thoroughly explained all of my options, as well as pros and cons of each. No pressure or Sales tactics, just a fair price.

Plumbing Pipe Installation or Replacement

Great experience with having to water spigots inspected for replacement and a water shut off installed; appreciate the explanation of the water setup and for the detailed review prior to work.

Water Heater Installation or Replacement

Replaced our 13yr old + hot water heater that was leaking CO at multiple points in the vent. Other companies told us that we had to use a tankless system upwards of $3k. Josh gave us an honest quote at a great price, explained the benefits of both systems, and scheduled service quickly. Four hours later, a new water heater was properly installed and vented. Josh and Stacey were a pleasure to deal with. Excellent work at an awesome price. Thank you!

Heating System Repair or Maintenance

I had 1 company out earlier in the morning and they told me it was just how my HVAC system was built. Skeptical - I thought I would try for a second opinion. I called and I was pushed through to Josh. Josh spoke to me about the issue and then made a call to a sub-contractor who came out within 45 mins and was AMAZING! The found the issue - fixed it on the spot and was very helpful in explaining the issue. great work and would recommend them to anyone looking for HVAC help.

Thank you Brian! Hello thumbtack. Brian was in need of assistance with a home inspection and time was of the essence. Knowing that we were booked for a few days I called one of our reliable subcontractors to take a look because he had an open schedule spot 30 minutes later. We don’t use subcontractors for plumbing or mechanical work(usually carpenters, tile and electric) but Justin is the lone exception to that He diagnosed the problem and fixed it in short order. Glad to be of service.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Service calls are based on a flat rate price schedule, a la carte. Any additional same-call services are performed at a reduced rate. Please call for details!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Our clients have a wide variety of needs and desires. Once we determine what you may hire us for, we will help you make a decision on how you'd like to proceed with the task at hand. For smaller service calls such as a water heater installation, we may be able to give you pricing before we come to your home. For projects that involve planning, we will schedule to meet with you in person and discuss your goals and options. You will then recieve a proposal that details what we will do, materials to be used, placement, and more as necessary. We will coach you on what to expect before, during and after your project and maintain clear communication through the entire process. There is a lot to discover about Solution Based ~ you have only just begun! The best way to interview us is to call, so please do!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    The lead plumbers on our team have either Journeyman or Master's licenses. They have had a minimum 4 to 5 years of proper training in trade school plus years of on-the-job training and examination before aquiring their Journeyman's licenses. Another year of full-time employment under a Master Plumber and second examination is required for the Masters. Our plumbers well exceed the above listed requirements and combined have been involved in their profession for longer than a lifetime!
