Highlands Ranch Plumbers
When a problem occurs in one part of your plumbing, it can have a ripple effect on the rest of your system. It is important to have a licensed plumber take care of your plumbing in order to prevent problems from forming deep within your system. Mac-Vik Plumbing & Heating has been taking care of homes in the Highlands Ranch area since 1962, and we have always been dedicated to offering quality plumbing services at an affordable price. Whether you need fast emergency repair or you need help crafting the plumbing in your new home, we are here to make the process easy and stress-free.
Plumbing repairs should always be done by a professional plumber. Each individual repair is important for keeping the entire system running properly. Each of our plumbers is licensed, experienced, background-checked, and continually given opportunities for education and additional training. We are so confident in our services that we offer a 12-month labor warranty on each repair.
The amount of time that your plumbing will last depends on the material that is used in your system. Galvanized piping was widely thought to be the best material, but has since proven to be more susceptible to corrosion over time. If you have an older system with galvanized piping, you may require more frequent repairs or even piping replacements. Today, we recommend copper or PEX piping which are both resistant to corrosion and last a long time. Regardless of your plumbing material, we are experts in diagnosing and repairing any problem that you encounter.
Toilets, Faucets, and Fixtures
While much of your plumbing system is inside the walls of your home or under the ground, your toilets, faucets, and fixtures are visible and contribute to the overall aesthetic of your home. It is important for them to both function properly and to look beautiful. We have struck this balance perfectly with our installation and repair services.
One of the most common plumbing problems that we see in the Highlands Ranch area is dripping faucets. While you may be tempted to put off calling the plumber, even a slow drip can waste gallons of water each year. Not only this, but a drip can cause damage to your pipes and fixtures over time. A leaky faucet is often extremely fast and affordable to fix, so you should never hesitate to call as soon as it becomes a problem.
If you have an older toilet and it has started to have problems, you may want to consider replacing it. A newer toilet uses less water and can save you money on your water bill. Having a new toilet can also add to the style of your bathroom and increase your comfort through many different customizable options. When you need a toilet repair or replacement, turn to your friends at Mac-Vik Plumbing & Heating.
Garbage Disposal Repair
Garbage disposals are designed to be able to grind many of the foods that you consume on a daily basis. However, each brand has its limitations and it is important to know what should be put down the disposal and what shouldn’t. Most garbage disposals are able to process vegetable scraps, small cubes of meat, leftovers, citrus peels, ice cubes, and even small chicken bones. However, you should always avoid placing coffee grounds, grease and oil, vegetable peelings, shrimp shells, and stringy vegetables at your disposal to avoid jams and clogs.
When your garbage disposal does have a problem or becomes damaged by a non-food item, you can rely on our fast and expert garbage disposal repair services. We can repair all models of disposal and we always work quickly so that you can regain access to your sink. If your disposal is more than 10 years old, we may recommend a replacement instead. We install the most reliable systems so that you can enjoy many years of trustworthy operation.
Sump Pump Services
Highlands Ranch and surrounding areas can sometimes experience heavy spring and summer rainstorms. This can lead to flooding in the basement and costly repairs. Every home needs a reliable sump pump that is ready to turn on at any moment to protect your home from flooding. You should also consider investing in a sump pump that is still fully operational even when the power goes out.
Once you have installed a sump pump, it is important to not just forget about it. At Mac-Vik Plumbing & Heating, we recommend frequent inspections to make sure it is still working perfectly. You can test it yourself by putting a couple of gallons of water on the sump pump to make sure it still turns on. If you notice the excess moisture in your basement or you suspect that your sump pump has failed, give our team a call.
Water Heater Services
While a cold shower may be welcome in the middle of July, hot water is still needed for many other tasks. A lack of hot water can immediately interrupt your day and make it difficult for you to complete basic tasks. If your water heater has stopped working, you can call Mac-Vik Plumbing & Heating right away. The problem can be anything from a tripped circuit breaker to a leak in your tank, so it is important to have the issue resolved as quickly as you can.
When one of our plumbers arrives, we will work to determine if a repair or a replacement is recommended for your unit. Some problems, such as a leak in the tank, will almost always necessitate a replacement. Other problems can be fixed by simply adjusting the thermostat, flushing the tank, or replacing the anode rod. You can trust us to always recommend the choice that will be best for your home and budget.
Tankless Water Heaters
We are excited to offer tankless water heater installation in the Highlands Ranch area. Tankless water heaters feature wonderful technology that allows homes to have unlimited hot water while helping homeowners save money on utility costs. While traditional water heaters take up a lot of space, tankless water heaters are compact and can be installed virtually anywhere in the home.
An additional benefit of a tankless water heater is the extended lifespan. Most water heaters only last 8-10 years, but a tankless system that has been properly maintained can last two or even three times as long. The additional cost of having this type of water heater installed is offset in the long term by lower energy bills and longer life.
Drain Cleaning Services
Clogged drains can happen in any home at any time and they can cause a big mess and are extremely inconvenient. Many traditional methods of drain cleaning remove the main part of the clog but leave residue behind that can lead to additional clogs within months.
Our hydro-jetting technology is designed to remove even the most stubborn grease and bacteria from your pipes so that they stay cleaner, longer. As an added bonus, hydro jetting completely eliminates foul odors in your drains leaving them fresh as well as clog-free. Our goal is to do our job so well that our valued customers don’t have to call the plumber as often.
