Quality, reliable service for all of your plumbing needs!
Have you ever wondered how a plumbing company can advertise service in an hour or less? Or, how they are able to send their plumbers out for free estimates on every job because they will not give you an estimate over the phone? They can do this because they don't pay their plumbers for waiting or giving estimates. Instead, they pay them a commission for each job they do.
Now, we all know money motivates both a plumber who is paid hourly and one who is paid on commission. But take a look at the standards we use for wage increases in our company and compare that to how a commission plumber increases his wage.
HOURLY PAY versus COMMISSION PAY
- Quality of work
- Cleanliness of job site
- Efficient use of time
- Professional and courteous conduct
- Ability to sell you the job
- Ability to sell you extra work
- Maximizing the cost of each job
Unlike commission plumbers, hourly plumbers do not earn any percentage of work or parts billed out, so they are never tempted to sell you anything you don't need. Instead, they are able to focus on what they do best, plumbing!
The way commission plumbers are able to maximize the cost of each job is by providing the customer with a flat rate. By doing this, they are able to hide extremely high charges from the unsuspecting customer. We charge an hourly rate so you can easily see the cost breakdown of our labor and materials.
Our rates are simple and some of the lowest in the industry. We have a one hour minimum, and after the first hour we charge by the quarter hour. Our day rate for non-commercial accounts is $116 per hour between 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM excluding weekends and holidays. Nights and weekends are $156 per hour with a one hour minimum. Lower commercial rates are available, please call for pricing and requirements.
Because we pay our plumbers for all their time, we only provide free estimates over the phone. But, we also believe this is far more convenient for you by saving you time and allowing you to make a decision without any pressure. To help you get an idea of cost, the following is a list of the average length of time it takes to do some common plumbing jobs over 95 percent of the time:
- Backups (1hour)
- Toilet installations (1 hour)
- Garbage disposal installations (1 hour)
- Angle stop replacements (1 hour)
- Faucet installations (1 to 1 1/2 hours)
- Under sink leaks (1 to 2 hours)
My wife and I can heartily agree with your statement "Quality, reliable service for all your plumbing needs." You should add that your servicemen are efficient, knowledgeable, courteous and don't leave a mess.
We had one of your servicemen out again today and as usual he did a great job. We put our trust in the "Master."

Thank you for sending such a "Great" plumber to fix us. I smile every time I turn the water on. Everything was left fixed and cleaned up.

Again--I thank you for such wonderful and prompt service at my dad's house (water heater and sink). Unbelievable !
We would like to let you know that the two servicemen we had are very competent and considerate workers. Your manager gave us an instant feeling of relief as he was clearly knowledgeable about the problem and the remedy. At all times he kept us informed of the progress or any problems. Both were very hard workers and at all times did their very best to keep inconvenience to a minimum and always cleaned up.
Please feel free to use us as a reference for your services. This was a very stressful time for us. After completing restoration etc. we plan to replace some plumbing fixtures with some additional upgrades and you will be our first choice for that work.

Many of my friends have asked me for your business phone number which I gave them. Everyone thinks you did a good job and I thank you.
