The Do’s and Don’ts of Bathroom Remodeling.

If you are a DIY type of person you may think that bathroom remodeling is just another project.  Remodeling bathrooms is a whole new ballgame!  What could go wrong?  Remodeling bathrooms is an extremely intricate process that requires a lot of know-how.  Some bathroom renovations often take an entire team of contractors and subcontractors.

Questions you should ask of yourself –

1.)        What is your skill level?
2.)        Don’t try to DIY with the plumbing or electrical work.
3.)        Be creative and share that vision with your contractor.
4.)        Don’t forget about the all-important inspections and codes.

When all is said and done you want to have bathrooms in your home that add beauty and value to your castle.  If you botch the project the opposite may occur!  That’s why you call Albuquerque’s bathroom remodeling professional company E M Plumbing.  Let the E M team evaluate the job by calling this phone number (505) 980-9334.

It is NOT all about Price.

Contracting without a license in New Mexico is against the law…pure and simple!  If a plumbing contractor is working without a license, the division may stop the whatever project they happen to be working on and file a criminal charge of unlicensed contracting in Metropolitan or Magistrate Court.

Penalties for unlicensed contracting are set out by law.  For example, if the dollar value of the contracting work is $5,000 or less, the contractor may be sentenced to the county jail for 90 days or to the payment of a fine of $300 to $500, or both.  If it is over $5000 then they may be facing 6 months in jail and a fine of 10% of the job…or even both.

You don’t play fast and loose with plumbers who say they can do the job for less, but cannot produce a valid New Mexico plumbing contractor license.  What you CAN do is count on E M Plumbing every time because in the Albuquerque area no licensed plumber will get the job done more efficiently for less.  Give E M Plumbing a call today at (505) 980-9334.

Water Mains…A Main Topic.

Water mains are one of those things that you would rather not deal with.  If your current water main is having problems, then it's likely going to result in major problems for you. If you're trying to install a new water main in your home or business, then you want to be sure it's done right the first time…guaranteed!

Here are some things that a trained professional will look for –

1.  Access…obstructions such as trees must be factored into the job.
2.  How deep does the hole need to be dug?
3.  Will extreme temperature changes throughout the year need to be factored in?
4.  Obtaining the proper permits.

Eric and his team of pros has been serving the Albuquerque area with all of its water main needs for years.  It does not matter the size of the job, be it an existing family home, a new construction or one of ABQ’s many businesses E M Plumbing is always the right choice for water main installation or repair.  Give Eric a call at (505) 980-9334.

Cooler Weather is Nearly Here.

Indeed it is!  As the seasons change we generally switch to central heating in another month or so.  When we do, will our heating system be working up to capacity?  When you want to heat your home, you switch on the boiler with an electric switch.  Voila, it works each and every time…right?

What is supposed to happen is that a valve will open then gas enters a sealed combustion chamber in the boiler through a myriad of small jets, and an electric ignition system sets them ablaze.  The gas jets play onto a heat exchanger connected to a pipe carrying cold water.  The average life expectancy of a gas boiler is 10-15 years.

Where do you stand in your Albuquerque area home?  Have you simply lost track of how long your home’s boiler has been cranking along keeping you warm every winter?  Now is a great time to have your boiler checked by Eric and the pros at E M Plumbing Heating and Mechanical.  There is no room for surprises.  Call Eric at (505) 980-9334.
