Richard Dorozenski says Jack's Plumbing saved his newly remodeled bathroom from disaster.
"After installing a new shower during a remodeling job, the remodeler assembled the new shower valve and head and finished the tiling," Dorozenski says. But, he adds, he didn't get a chance to test the new shower after the work was completed. "When we did [test it], we found more water pouring into the garage below than was coming through the shower head. We prayed that the tile wouldn't have to be removed to fix the problem."
Luckily, Dorozenski knew exactly who to call. "I've worked with Jack [Cowell, the owner] before and he's got a real gift for quickly diagnosing a problem and fixing it," he says. "I gave him a call and he arrived right on time and fixed the leak, which turned out to be a poorly soldered joint in a hard-to-reach area. He found a way to go in through the closet behind the shower and cut a few small holes, fixing it perfectly."
Dorozenski says everything has worked since and the quick fix cemented his esteem for the plumber. "The great thing about Jack is that he's fair, honest and good at everything he does," he says. "I've been dealing with plumbers for over 30 years and he's way ahead of everyone else."
