Why do I need a Licensed, Bonded, and Insured plumber?
The simplest answer to this question is that licensing, bonding and insuring protects you, the consumer. To legally operate as a plumber in the counties we work in we must be licensed, bonded, and insured. Licensing insures that we have the knowledge and experience to properly plumb your project to code. Being bonded insures that your project will be completed. Insurance protects you against any cataclysmic mistakes or accidents that happen to people or property in the course of performing plumbing work. We carry both liability and workmen's compensation insurance for these reasons.
Why do I need a Permit?
A permit insures that the plumbing work you are paying for will be inspected by an objective 3rd party. The inspection process helps to assure the customer is actually receiving what they are paying for and that all work is performed to code. Additionally, if/when you sell your home you can rest assured the work you had done will pass the home inspection process.
What is the plumbing Code?
The plumbing code is a set of rules, regulations, guidelines, and practices that govern the installation and repair of plumbing systems. These codes were created, revised, and amended many times through the years to protect the health of the public. Unlike other states, Missouri leaves the choice of code up to local counties. There are two national codes (The IPC and UPC) that are used locally, but normally the UPC (Uniform Plumbing Code) is used with amendments from the local county.
Does your company offer a Warranty?

What kinds of Payment do you accept?
We happily accept payment by cash, check, MasterCard or Visa.
What should I do to Prepare for the plumber?
If possible, the work area should be free from any fragile furniture or personal property. Remove all cleaning products from under your kitchen sink area and in the bath area please remove rugs, cleaning products and toiletries from the work area. For outside and basement repairs clear access is most important. A small amount of preparation will ensure a pleasant plumbing experience.
