OUR SERVICES

We offer services ranging from the simple repair of a leaking faucet or drain cleaning, to the complete plumbing requirements of a home renovation project that might include a new bathroom, kitchen, gas line, and/or for all of the home plumbing challenges that happen on a daily basis. 

BATHROOM REMODELING

We can directly Contract with a Customer for the entire bath remodel or update, from design through completion. We believe in using local specialty Sub-Contractors for tile work, electrical, carpentry, mirrors, etcetera – rather than attempting to be a jack-of-all-Trades. Whether you use us as the General Contractor or as a Sub-Contractor, your interests are usually best served by dealing with and paying a single Professional Firm, if you need help with locating another trusted General Contractor, we can do so, at no fee. We have provided some additional insights regarding these services under Ask the Professional, the headings are Faucet Repair, Faucet Replacement and Should I Replace My Toilet, also What’s That Smell, and When Is It Time To Update.

 

INTERIOR PIPING

Many times, especially in older homes, pipes may need to be moved or replaced. Whether the need is to move a single pipe for a new appliance or a partial/complete replacement is required, we can do it. We have provided some additional insights regarding this service under Ask the Professional, the heading is When Is It Time To Update.

 

DRAIN CLEANING

Drain cleaning can range from a standard (1¼-inch) hand basin drain thru an (8-inch) sewer main. We have the equipment and can respond quickly to cleaning smaller bathroom and kitchen drains. Larger lines require specialized equipment and knowledge. We can sub-contract these services or recommend a qualified Contractor to serve our customers needs. We have provided some additional insights regarding this service under Ask the Professional, the headings are Drain Cleaning, and What's That Smell.

 

HYDRONICS

Hydronics heating has come a long way from cast iron gravity hot water and steam boilers. Today’s modern Hydronics Systems work in perfect balance to insure your comfort regardless of the outside weather, and we have the expertise to find and install the correct solution to meet each home’s requirements. Modern Radiant Heating is as simple as letting the building structure distribute heat at a minimal rate over a large area. Radiant floor heat is particularly comfortable and efficient; the heat energy is emitted from a warm element, such as a floor, wall or overhead panel, and warms people and other objects in rooms rather than directly heating the air. Underfloor and wall heating systems often are called low-temperature systems. Since their heating surface is much larger than with other systems, a much lower temperature is required to achieve the same level of heat transfer, the energy (heat) moving through space by means of electromagnetic waves in much the same way as electromagnetic light waves transfer light. Outdoor radiant heaters allow specific spaces within an outdoor area to be targeted, warming only the people and objects in their path. Although these types of heating solutions are somewhat more expensive up-front, the dividends in comfort and distribution efficiency will ultimately be a cost savings. Note: Boilers can be used for both conventional and radiant heating systems. We have provided some additional insights regarding this service under Ask the Professional, the headings are Boiler Replacement, and The New Boilers.

 

INSTALLATIONS

These types of projects can be tricky and problematic, especially when excavation is required and/or when a Customer is connecting to a Private/Public or Municipal Facility Line. It is always best to hire a Professional Firm (like ours) to make certain that all current lines, such as, electrical, gas, and water are clearly flagged before the first shovel load is taken. Additionally, there are always various requirements for bonds, permits and restoration issues that need to be completed via Local Ordinances, which we can easily complete. Flows need to be calculated to determine drop angles and permissible use requirements, per available guidelines. We have the knowledge, skill, and resources to complete all of these elements, including planning through to the required finished landscape prerequisite. We have provided some additional insights regarding these services under Ask the Professional, the headings are When Is It Time To Update, and possibly Help - My Sewer Is Plugged.

 

WATER HEATERS

We install and work on most styles of water heaters. Read my comments concerning On-Demand Water Heaters, by clicking on Ask the Professional and under the heading of Water Heater Replacement and Tank-less / No Tanks or No Thanks. We believe that we deliver an overall better product when we install any type of water heater and the various support systems that apply to the selected solution.

 

GAS LINES

Working on Natural Gas Lines and/or Gas coming from Wells is best left to the professionals, like us. We have the proven experience with working on feeder lines up to 2” in diameter. We have installed lines inside and out, on roofs and below ground, and connections to high pressure Gas Wells with multiple specific function regulators. We have provided some additional insights regarding this service under Ask the Professional, the heading is I Smell Gas and maybe, for additional clarifications What's That Smell.

 

FAUCET & FIXTURE REPLACEMENT

Many of today’s products require yearly maintenance. We can schedule such maintenance in a convenient manner to fit a Customer’s schedule, or we are available on demand by simply contacting us at (814) 864.9883. We can repair and/or replace all of the elements associated with plumbing work. We still replace plumbing washers and repair leaking faucets and traps. Keep in mind that, “We specialize in fixing the problem, not just the symptom”. We have provided some additional insights regarding these services under Ask the Professional, the headings are Drain Cleaning, What's That Smell, When Is It Time To Update, Should I Replace My Toilet, and maybe, Help - My Sewer Is Plugged.
