What goes on behind the walls of a home is just as important, if not more important, than all the work that goes into what’s between those walls. Regular plumbing inspections are an important part of maintaining a home and avoiding costly future expenses. Whether you haven’t been in your East End home since last summer or you’ve been running water all year long, it’s important to know a good plumber and avoid the type of problem that could quickly ruin a dinner party. No one wants an overflowing toilet flooding the newly renovated bathroom.
