Why choose us?

 On a Friday afternoon I got a typical service call from a Realtor to fix a leaky dishwasher that housekeeping had reported.......

  Initial inspection showed the dishwasher was working fine.  I checked the plumbing underneath the sink which was fine.

 I hooked the dishwasher up in the middle of the kitchen, ran it through a full cycle, no leaks.  Everything is soaked, it's hard to tell where the water coming from.

The only place left for the water to come from was out of the wall.  This is a picture of the other side of the wall, showing two exterior hose spigots.

I focused on the lower spigot as it looked newer.  I removed exterior trim and drilled two inspection holes that I could hide later with trim strip.  I inserted a special camera through the holes and found the leak.

I had all the tools to remove siding without damage.  The lower spigot had been tightened too tight and broke the old copper fittings inside the wall.

The copper fittings were replaced with new parts I had in stock and pressure tested.  Insulation was put back and vapor barrier installed.

 Siding caulked and fastened in place.  Trim put back and screw holes filled with putty ready for paint.

By being well-equipped with tools and parts, I was able to fix the problem on the first service call.  I was able to save the siding and trim and not buy new, saving time and money.  The customer also saved time and money by having one person do the whole job and not having to hire and coordinate a plumber and contractor.  I left the house mopped up/cleaned up, ready for weekend rental that didn't have to be cancelled.

The majority of our home repair business work is in Stinson Beach, California.  We also do some work over the mountain in Marin County.
