Looking For Handyman Plumber in the Vacaville area?
As handyman plumbers, people always want to know what our limitations are. The thought process usually goes a little bit like this; the little things can be handled by handyman plumbers, for the big things I am going to need to hire specialists. Quite frankly there are people who think this way about all of the services that we provide.
We don’t agree with that thought process 100%. Here are a couple of things though that we are confident we are going to be able to help you with. So you can get a better glimpse of what exactly you can expect from a handyman plumber service!
Most plumbers receive their training by doing an apprenticeship, which combines classroom instruction with paid on-the-job training. Most states also require a license to work independently.
Apprenticeship: Apprenticeships are sponsored by trade unions and employers. They last from four to five years and include 2,000 hours of on-the-job training and classroom instruction. You will need a high school or equivalency diploma and must be at least 18 years old to be accepted into a program. In the classroom, you will learn about local codes and regulations, blueprint reading, and safety.
License: Plumbers are required to have a license to work in most states and municipalities in the U.S. In addition to needing two to five years of experience, depending on where the license is issued, you must also pass an exam.
Bathroom Faucet Repair
Bathroom and kitchen faucet repair services are mainly what we get calls about. There are actually a wide variety of reasons why your faucets are not running correctly. What we tend to find is that most issues stem from lack of maintenance and older equipment.
If you have a faucet that is just filled with calcium deposits there is just no chance that you are going to be getting normal water flow. The same thing goes for showers for example. When that is the case we can usually just replace some of the fixtures and you are going to find that your water flow issues have been solved.
Drain & Water Flow Inspections
Although a good portion of the issues that we find can be solved by replacing certain fixtures that does not mean that this is the only way that we know how to make repairs. Like doctors, a handyman plumber needs to be able to make a proper diagnosis of the situation. To then be able to provide a proper solution to the evident problem.
Actually checking water flow and water pressure is relatively easy with some of the newer equipment that is used in homes. We are going to be able to evaluate your situation and let you know where we think the problem is. That way you can decide whether or not you want us to help fix it for you.
Leaky Faucet Repair or Pipe Line Repair
Leaking pipes are a great danger to the well being of any home or building. Homes around here are built with wooden frames that don’t tend to do too well when they are put up against water or just general moisture. Even a small flood can literally tear up your entire home. If you have a leaking pipe be sure to give us a call quickly. If you can shut off the water supply to your home that would be a good start and then we will come in and actually fix the problem.
There are few things that are as embarrassing as clogging the toilet. It hurts a lot too when something like this leads you to have to pay hundreds of dollars in repairs. A clogged toilet should not set you back thousands of dollars or forcefully require that you call your insurance company. These are issues that can be solved relatively quickly by pumping your septic tank or other methods that can be accomplished without too much trouble.
