Lots of people have leaky faucets, but most people don’t realize that their faucets could be dripping up to 3,000 gallons of wasted water each year. The teams at Roto-Rooter locations throughout the county are brimming with this type of information, absorbed over more than 75 years in business.
The company began in 1935 thanks to the ingenuity of Samuel Blanc, who patched together his first sewer-cleaning machine from a washing-machine motor and roller-skate wheels. Today, armed with much more advanced technologies, Roto-Rooter’s technicians tackle a full range of residential and commercial plumbing and drain services. The technicians are licensed, insured, and available 24/7 in case of unforeseen emergencies, such as extracting a 1,500-pound tree root from an underground pipe. And though the company dates back decades, it’s still forward thinking—its ROTOGreen initiative includes the installation of fixtures that meet or exceed EPA standards.
Now carrying the torch that has burned brightly—and lit furnaces—for more than 125 years, the fourth generation of Geilers continues the family's tradition of flexible, professional service in everything from heating and AC repair to plumbing. Fully licensed, trained technicians tinker with furnaces, boilers, and air-filtration systems to fix leaks, swap out filters, and test for hazardous gases, and photographic inspections of ducts help diagnose blockages such as built-up dust and portly secret agents. On call 24 hours a day, emergency plumbers rush to the scene to fix faucet and pipe leaks, repair water heaters or underground pipes, and combat low water pressure.
For more than 15 years, Van Handy's team of expert home fixers has been tackling household jobs of all sizes. Whether the workers are installing new ceiling fans or completely remodeling kitchens, they strive to leave more beautiful, functional homes behind. In addition to general handyman services—including plumbing and electric work—they repair drywall, renovate bathrooms and basements, and add additions to houses. They also deftly build decks, repair roofs, and transform rooms with carpet, tile, or hardwood. Rather than change their homes' color schemes by splashing the walls with spaghetti sauce, homeowners can summon Van Handy's crew for professional paint jobs.
Protecting homes' piping is only half the battle for The Eco Plumbers's skilled technicians. More importantly, they help homeowners by proposing eco-friendly solutions and commonplace lifestyle changes that can save energy or hundreds of gallons of water a year. This next-generation sense of environmental responsibility is at the forefront of the plumbers' minds, regardless of whether they are repairing a hot-water heater, fixing a faucet, or patching a weathered slip 'n' slide. They also demonstrate their green tendencies by recycling all of the leftover materials and scraps from each job, and they support local industries.
Customers rave about the quick response from the Buckeye Tool Guy, a former schoolteacher who's owned and operated his own construction and repair business since 1989. Frank's Home Repair specializes in all manner of household refurbishment, from electrical and plumbing work to carpentry and drywall installation. Like a rubber couch, Frank works just as well indoors and out, and he also works alone, calling upon more than 20 years of handy experience to attend to a wide variety of household needs.
The uniformed, fully insured technicians at Handyman Professionals arrive at homes 24 hours a day to tackle plumbing, electrical, and carpentry projects of all sizes. Techs can be deployed for bathroom and kitchen installation, custom cabinetry, pressure washing, and even weatherproofing. If time remains after a handyman paints a room or cleans the gutters, homeowners can request a lock installation to protect their valuables or prized collection of candy rings.
