Though the technicians of JDG Exterior and Home Improvement are adept at one-time fix-it flings, they're romantics at heart, striving to build trust and long-term relationships with each client. The licensed, bonded, and insured staffers often get to know their clients’ homes through monthly or annual maintenance visits. Once there, they draw on 20 years of construction and repair experience to survey and spruce up the surroundings, taking on carpentry challenges, drywall patches, and plumbing problems with seasoned finesse. Their list of services covers a broad range of jobs, from small projects to larger makeovers, including kitchen backsplash, light, and ceiling fan installation and remodeling homes to impress that handsome house down the block. Throughout their services, they consult with customers in detail to ensure that the end results line up with the customer's initial vision, and they gladly supply estimates on any desired service that isn’t listed on their menu.
When Hiller Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Company's customers have questions or concerns, they can go straight to Jimmy Hiller—the company's president—with the Just Jimmy hotline. This type of access is what Jimmy takes pride in as he strives to continue customer service that has earned his company praise as one of Tennessee Magazine's Top 50 Most Promising Companies, and one of the top 500 fastest-growing private companies according to Inc. Magazine.
Along with a crew of professional technicians, Jimmy and his staffers perform routine and emergency maintenance on household systems including plumbing, heating and A/C, water heaters, and sewer and drainage systems. They specialize in everything from routine faucet adjustments to video inspections of heat exchangers, ensuring air can flow freely and vents aren't concealing any lost Santa Clauses.
