The right plumber does

The right plumber does make a difference. By Denise Johnson Welcome to Nevada County where the beauty of the Sierra Foothills and opportunity have attracted settlers since the mid-1800’s. We’re fortunate to have wellpreserved historic towns surrounded by neighborhoods dotted with historic homes. The entire Johnson family chose to settle in western Nevada County in 1972, so our roots run deep. We love the community and the history of Nevada County. On the family ranch, that's been standing for over 100 years, we have NID irrigation, a holding pond, a domestic well, PVC, galvanized, copper and PEX pipe. In reality, it’s a hands-on plumbing school! This experience is what makes our company the best when it comes to reallife situations and everyday plumbing needs in Nevada County. As long-time residents, we are well trained and certified to handle a delicate job in a historic structure with fragile bones/pipes or the modern designs of new construction. Working with local real estate agents since 2004, we help their clients make decisions about buying new homes and take the worry out of plumbing challenges when considering the purchase of a home where renovation or restoration is necessary or desired. With advances in plumbing, it is possible to refurbish a home from the 1800’s with modern plumbing. In many cases, our goal is to preserve plumbing fixtures of the past. Who doesn’t love an “authentic” cast iron claw foot tub? However, if that’s not possible our local suppliers stock historical reproductions of fixtures and accessories that will make your home feel like an updated version of the original. Many examples of these homes exist throughout Nevada County. On many occasions our clients will seek our advice for needs other than plumbing; we use our deep relationships within the community to find the help they seek. Nevada County is our home, and we hope you choose to settle here as well. And, should you have a plumbing project, we are happy to work with you—you shouldn’t have to think about the plumbing. That’s our job! uh-oh! MOM. . . you better call Craig!
