Call Us with All Your Plumbing Needs

No matter what your plumbing needs in Chapel Hill are, we can ensure that they are met. We offer a full range of plumbing services. If you need any of the services listed below, or have questions about the other services we offer, don’t hesitate to call us. Use Bud Matthews Services for all of your plumbing needs.

Automatic Shutoff Valves and Backflow Prevention

An automatic shutoff valve is an emergency device that monitors the flow of water through your pipes. If your pipes experience a major leak or rupture, the automatic shutoff valve will shut off the flow of water to the house without you having to do anything. This could save you thousands of dollars in repairs by immediately stemming the flow of water.

Backflow is a condition in which a sudden pressure change sucks sewer water back up into the house, contaminating the plumbing system and creating a biohazard. The best way to stop this is with a backflow prevention device. These devices ensure that your waste water only flows in one direction.

Bathroom and Kitchen Plumbing Services

Your bathroom is the area with the most plumbing fixtures, by far. So, you’re going to want to make sure that all of them are functioning properly. We install and service all manner of bathroom fixtures, including sinks, faucets, toilets, showers, and bathtubs. We’ll make sure your bathroom is as comfortable and convenient as possible.

Next to your bathroom, your kitchen has the highest concentration of plumbing appliances in the home. We install and service all kitchen plumbing appliances, including garbage disposals, kitchen sinks, faucets, and dishwashers. If you need kitchen plumbing services of any kind, give us a call.

The garbage disposal is one of the most vital appliances in the kitchen. Without it, your cooking efforts would certainly be a lot less convenient. We install, repair, maintain, and replace garbage disposals throughout Chapel Hill, NC. Call us if you need garbage disposal services.

Emergency Plumbing

Most plumbing problems don’t occur at a convenient time. It isn’t fair to expect you to wait for an appointment when you have a burst pipe or other serious problem. That’s why we offer full–service emergency plumbing. If you have a plumbing emergency, call us anytime and we’ll take care of it.

Gas Lines, Piping and Water Line Services

If you want to use a gas appliance in your home, like a furnace, stove, oven, or even a fireplace, you’re going to need a gas line. Gas lines transport natural gas from the city’s gas main into your home, where it can be used by any appliances that need it. We install and service gas lines.

Whether you’re moving into a new home or replacing some outdated infrastructure, you’re probably going to need piping services at some point. We provide high quality piping services, so you can rest assured knowing that your plumbing system has the best possible materials in it. Call for more information.

If you want fresh water coming into your home, you’re going to need a water line. We install and service water lines, whether you get your water from a city water main or from some other source. We’ll help ensure that you have access to a source of fresh water.

Detecting Leaks and Dealing with Excess Water

The most important part of repairing a leak in your plumbing system is early detection. The sooner we detect a leak in your system, the faster we can repair it and the more damage we can prevent. Call us today to take advantage of our comprehensive water leak detection services.

A slab leak is what happens when a pipe under the concrete foundation of your home springs a leak. This can cause incredible amounts of water damage to your home, which is why we take it so seriously. We can detect and repair slab leaks for you, so that you don’t have to worry about repairing thousands of dollars’ worth of water damage.

If you have an area of your home that is especially susceptible to flooding, you’re going to want to install a sump pump. Sump pumps remove water from an area before it has a chance to pool, preventing flooding in the process. We install and service sump pumps.

Water Treatment Systems

Sometimes, things make it past the municipal water treatment and into your home’s water. These contaminants can change the taste of your water, discolor it, or even pose a danger to you and your plumbing. If you think your water quality may be suspect, install a water treatment system in your home.

Commercial Plumbing

Commercial buildings use water just as much as residential ones. As such, they require just as much (though often more) plumbing service as their residential counterparts. We offer a full range of commercial plumbing services throughout Chapel Hill, NC. Call us for more information.
