What plumbing services can I expect for Waterman to provide in Hamilton?
Should you find yourself in need of a plumber in the Hamilton area, there are many to choose from with varying degrees of specialization and knowledge. However if you want exceptional customer service and experienced master plumbers, you would do well to consider Waterman. We specialize in all plumbing services and can tackle any project no matter the size. The types of projects Waterman can assist with are listed below, but our customer service aspects can be downplayed either. Waterman will arrive promptly, listen to your concerns, estimate the project and follow-up with any questions about a plumbing service that you might have. Our attention to detail is second to none and we will not rest until the project is completed to your liking.
The services we offer include the following:
Drain Services – This includes inspection and cleaning your drains. Waterman will use high-tech cameras to penetrate deep into your drain pipes to determine the cause of any blockage you might have. This allows the homeowner to better understand the cause of the drain clog and make an educated decision along with the plumber’s guidance on how to proceed. For example, if the camera shows a tree root in the drain, Waterman can immediately move on to a plan for the root removal and avoid wasting time on other potential problems. We also offer regularly schedule drain cleaning and clog reducing products to ensure your drains stay healthy and free of debris.
Sewer Backup – When you have a sewer backup, it can be dangerous for your family and destructive to your home and furnishings. Experienced plumbers can hunt down the source of your backup and remove the clog or fix the damage in a matter of hours depending on the size of your problem. Waterman also offers cleanup services and can help you get your home back to the way it was before raw sewage came bubbling up from your drain. We can also perform sewer line replacements and repairs if necessary. Worst case scenario your septic tank needs to be replaced, (which can happen in homes over 30 years old) but don’t worry Waterman has the tools and knowledge to handle even a repair of that scope.
Camera Drain Inspection – The high-tech cameras that Waterman uses to inspect your drain save time and money when it comes to hunting down a pipe break or clog. The advantage to camera use is the ability to understand the clog before rooting around with a drain snake or breaking a foundation to search for an intrusive root. A collapsed pipe will need to be sectioned and finding that out early can save you from needless diagnostics and potential backups while you plan for the repair. Knowing the cause of your problem will help the plumber plan a course of action that removes the problem with the least amount of guesswork, which saves the customer money.
Basement Waterproofing – Basements in Hamilton typically have a lot of moisture in them because of the climate and humidity. The primary reason for this is that the ground temperatures are usually colder than the atmosphere and this cause an ideal situation for humidity and condensation in basements in the city. This moisture can lead to foundation damage and mold problems which can make the space uninhabitable. Waterman will come in and re-seal the rim joists if needed and apply foundation sealants to the floors and walls. In more extreme cases where water has been detected under the foundation slab, we can install a sump pump to resolve the problem as well.
Basement Lowering – Depending on when your home was built and what plan the contractor was following, you may find that your basement is not high enough for your liking. Basements with low ceilings tend to be harder to rent than those with normal height, so the problem can affect your rental income as well. Waterman can come out and discuss the project with you and based on the square footage and your required depth, we can quote a price during the initial meeting. We will break up the foundation, excavate to the desired depth, underpin the home and lay a new waterproofed and sealed foundation slab with no inconvenience to the upper floors while we perform the task.
Water Service – Most homes in the Hamilton area were made with supply lines of half inch pipe and lead supplies. Neither of these is acceptable by today’s standards due to the danger of lead in drinking water and the fact that half inch lines do not hold enough water flow for the average sized family. Waterman can come in and replace your piping to allow for more pressure and flow while removing lead deposits used in solder and brass fittings at the same. Should you find your pipework is easily accessible, most plumbers can perform these services relatively cheap and quickly. The benefits of upgrading your plumbing for safety and convenience far outweigh the cost anyway.
Plumbing Services – Generally speaking, plumbing services that the average homeowner might require can range from a leaky toilet to a flooded basement. When you select a plumber, you should make sure they have experience with all types of cases. Waterman has a skilled fleet of plumbers with a diverse group of specialties so no matter what your plumbing service, we can tackle the issue. We also perform regular maintenance and inspections should you wish to head-off any problems in preparation for a sale or if you are seeking a renter.
Plumbing services can vary a great deal in the amount of time, effort and cost involved. Jobs that require excavation, remodeling or slab replacements tend to lean toward the more expensive end of the scale and you want to be sure that these jobs are done right the first time. Waterman has experienced plumbers on our team for every type of job, no matter how large or small and we consistently put customer service at the forefront to retain your business for years to come. In the Hamilton area we are a leading provider of all plumbing services and you would do well to consider us for your next project.
I called several plumbing/drain companies for an estimate to unclogg my bathtub drain and Jim was the most reasonable in price. I found Jim to be very punctual, quick and efficient. I also had Jim quote on two much larger drain jobs, he took the time to professionally explain the scope of work needed with diagrams and gave a fair price.
The owner, Jim, was recommended to us by a friend who had a damaged (roots) sewer line, as we did, and used his services. We have nothing but good things to say about Jim and his crew. From the onset Jim was prompt, straight forward and very transparent about options.
