Everyone has maintenance problems arise within their homes. Some of these issues can be easily fixed with some "DIY" or "how-to" instruction, elbow grease, and a few trips to the local big box store. Things such as replacing toilet flappers, replacing a P-trap, or installing a new shower head are easy and relatively hazard-free. Some are even qualified to replacing plumbing fixtures themselves.
Others situations, however, need a plumber's hand to avoid costly water or bodily damage to yourself, your home and possessions. Issues concerning water heaters, boilers, and other potentially dangerous plumbing appliances or situations should not be handled by those without adequate training. The following are instances where plumbing inspections and repairs are required:
Water Heaters and Boiler Systems
Special Note: We understand that water heaters and components related to them are readily available. However, proper installation according to Michigan Plumbing codes and manufacturer's installation instructions must be strictly adhered to for your personal safety.
When you contact us to assist you with your plumbing problems, we will begin by asking questions to learn more about the full spectrum of the problem. If the issue seems more complex, we may try to schedule an appointment where one of our qualified estimators can examine the problem(s) for themselves - at their descretion. Depending on if the sistuation warrants professional plumbing repair or service, we will then offer a bid for the project.
This will vary on the type of job. For example, the price of replacing a water heater will depend on the type of water heater you need (electric, gas, venting type, size, etc.), the location of an existing venting system, what type of water pipe connections, and more. These things can be overwhelming to a homeowner, but to a professional plumber - this is all too common.
Let's say we give you a price of $650 plus a permit fee (varies by area) for replacing an existing natural gas, 40 gallon, B-vent water heater... and you accept our proposal. We will then schedule a time to replace the water heater when you are available, or set up a plan for entry to the premises with your permission. Our licensed and insured plumbers will arrive as scheduled, or call if there will be a delay. For a project such as a water heater replacement, we will complete the switch within 4 hours of starting the project. We would dispose of your old water heater at that same time.
Payment is due once the job is completed, and we accept check, cash, or Visa/Mastercard. Any other billing options must be discussed with the office prior to job commencement.
