WATER HEATER REPAIR & REPLACEMENT
By The Book Plumbing carries Bradford White water heaters with an option for a 6 or 10 year warranty period on the parts and tank. Our standard water heater installation includes a new, easy to turn, long lasting brass water shut off valve, copper water connections, flexible gas connection, and haul away of the previous unit. In addition to these benefits, By The Book Plumbing provides a 1 year labor warranty on standard water heaters, while supplying a 2 year labor warranty on our 10 year warranty model.
There are quite a few options for tank-style Water Heaters that plumbers can choose from, but it was an easy choice to pick Bradford White. We prefer to support Bradford White because they manufacture their products in America, have a 24/7 Call Support Center, and their repair parts are available at mostly any Plumbing Supply Center. Our standard water heater installation includes a new, easy to turn, long lasting brass water shut off valve, copper water connections, flexible gas connection with sediment trap, and haul away of the previous unit.
Most of the homes in our Service Area have their Water Heater located inside the attic. This is not an optimal location as it does make it more costly to replace when it does go out, leaks can escape the pan and damage sheetrock, and our hot climates can frequently make the Pilot Light go out during the intense Texas Summer heat. Some customers may prefer to go with a Tankless Water Heater solution as this eliminates the storage tank in the attic, handles the Attic Temperature better during the summer months, and is able to provide an endless amount of hot water. We have found that Rinnai offers a sturdy, well-built product that is capable of meeting our customers needs.
One of the most common questions we receive is “How much will it cost to replace my water heater?” The answer is…Well, it depends! For example, a home that was built in the 70’s outside a city code jurisdiction may have had their Water Heater installed with an improperly sized Relief or Drain Pan line, their exhaust vent made out of a cheaper single wall material instead of double wall, or located in such a position that makes it physically more dangerous to remove because there is not a walkway to the unit. Additionally, some of our customers live within a city’s jurisdiction that requires a permit and inspection in order to replace their unit. It is because of these reasons that our company does not charge a service fee to visit your home during regular business hours to provide a personalized quote.
Professional, timely, and excellent communication! My shower drain was clogging up frequently. James came out and was able to find the problem....nails! Apparently the builders allowed nails to go down the drain and did not take them out. He was able to remove them all and my drain has worked perfectly since. Will definitely use again!
James did a great job in diagnosing and fixing my garbage disposal. A definite A+ in reliability and honesty! I would definitely recommend his services.
Had the opportunity for James to work in my home on a couple of projects. I was upgrading my bathroom when the tile installer was unable to install the toilet. James came in and not only installed one but suggested I get a taller one with a more efficient water consumption. My shower head was old and stained he brought in a new shower head that is beautiful and completed my new look. He was quick courteous and professional. I can enjoy my bath area and can say to James, job well done!
Awesome guy and great service! He got us fixed under budget and on a Saturday. He was on time, knowledgeable, and professional. We definitely will use him in the future. If any one needs a great plumber give James a call.
