Fixture Repair & Replacement

Repairing faucets has become a disappearing art. Our mechanics have extensive experience in the Boston area and are accustomed to the many old outdated types of fixtures found in houses all around Boston. We will elect to repair rather than replace if the economics warrant the effort. We also replace any plumbing fixture or valves desired including (toilets, pedestal sinks, vanities, faucets, anti- scald shower valves, washing machine valves, dishwashers, waterlines for ice makers, laundry sinks, valve replacements, spigots, sump pumps, as well as all commercial plumbing fixtures).

 

Leaks / Drips

Leaks can come from many different sources–drain lines, water lines, heating pipes, gas lines, vent pipes or drips from condensate, just to name a few. We locate them all. Call us if you have a stain, puddle, or wet spot. If you can’t locate the problem, we will.

In some of the older houses around Boston, we often find leaks coming from old cracked grout lines, loose tiles, or missing grout in the bathroom floor or shower surround. Fifty percent of tub leaks are from water getting through cracks in the grout. If you have a leak around the tub, we highly recommend that before calling us that you fill the tub with water and let it drain. If it begins to leak, then you have a plumbing leak. If there’s no leak, try the following:
-check the bathroom’s tile and grouting
-check water marks on the floor at the tub to floor intersection
-spray the walls to see if a leak through the tile is causing the drip or stain and not the actual plumbing

If the tile is causing the drip or stain, get the tiles re-grouted, or seal the cracks.

Clogged Drains

All plumbing fixtures and drains can become clogged and we have experience clearing them all. We will clear all drains (tubs, sinks, shower stalls, toilets, kitchen sinks, floor drains) and any other plumbing fixtures. Clogs or slow drains will become more severe if not dealt with quickly. So don.t delay, get it cleared today!

Gas Piping Repairs & Replacements

Gas leaks are the most dangerous leaks to have, and should never be overlooked. Call us as soon as you smell or hear gas leaking. We also install and replace gas appliances; stoves, ranges, dryers as well as space heaters, gas logs, decorative stoves, along with other heating and hot water equipment.

Frozen Pipes

Boston winters are very cold at times and on cold nights un-insulated or exposed pipes can easily be frozen especially in basements or drafty areas. We deal with these situations every winter. We locate and repair any type of frozen pipe or fixtures. Be sure to call us as soon as you start to experience a problem with a frozen or slow water line, for sometimes, simple measures can reverse the problem. The longer a line is left, the more it will freeze making the problem bigger and more expensive.
