5 Great Ways to Put Our Plumbers to Work!

Posted on: August 23, 2016

We offer a wide range of services to homes in Durham. One of our most extensive services is plumbing. However, when people think of professional plumbers, they usually think of plumbers helping out with an emergency. Clogged drains, overflowing toilets, no water from the faucets, etc. These are all plumbing troubles that we can fix, and you can reach us for emergency services 24/7.

But our plumbers are also here to offer you home improvement and preventive maintenance services. Below are some of the ways you can put our plumbers to work when you don’t have emergency repairs needs:

  1. Sump pump installation: If you have concerns about flooding in your home (or if it’s happened at some point in the past), you can contact our plumbers to install a sump pump. These devices automatically pump out excess water from basements and crawlspaces, eliminating extensive water damage from flooding of all types.
  2. Automatic shut-off valve installation: Another great precaution against flooding. We’ll install a valve that will automatically cut off the water main into your home if it detects flooding.
  3. Gas piping: Plumbers work with more than water pipes. Our plumbers install and repair the pipes that carry natural gas through a home to appliances. If you want to expand how you use natural gas in your home, such as converting your kitchen to use a gas stove and oven, arrange for the new gas piping with us.
  4. Repiping: This is an important preventive measure for an older home. If you have a plumbing system made from steel pipes, it’s time to upgrade to plastic and copper. Our plumbers are experienced with handling whole-house repiping, as well as more limited repiping.
  5. New bathroom and kitchen fixtures: If you’re looking to spruce up a tired kitchen or bathroom, let our plumbers put in new sinks, faucets, showers, etc. Whatever you need!
