Recent Review: I can’t say enough great things about Jan and his company, Vanguard Plumbing. In simple terms, he is not only the best plumber that I have ever worked with, I would go further and say that he is the best trades-person with whom I have dealt. First, he provides great service. He is easily accessible and responds to calls very promptly by phone or e-mail. He provides clear and comprehensive quotes listing the prices he will charge for a project. The quote is backed up by a written confirmation. He is flexible on scheduling and keeps the customer posted as to his timing on appointment days. Of course, I hired him for his plumbing skill, pricing and integrity. All are top notch. His prices are vey reasonable. He is very honest. He never tries to sell or upcharge – to the contrary, he cautions against unnecessary and expensive additional work that he could do. I have used him for several projects in my condo, including replacing faucets, replacing toilets, putting in shower heads, and fixing leaky faucets. The work he has done for me on jos several visits has uniformly been of high quality with no problems. He is very diligent as well. He stays with the project and works very hard. He did not charge me for the extra time that was required when the work ran into an unexpected snag caused by unforeseeable piping problems in my building. He also has had very good assistants with him. He cleans up everywhere he works and double-checks the work before he leaves to make sure that everything is working properly. He follows up with a written confirmation of payment. In short, I couldn’t be more pleased with Jan and Vanguard. I highly recommend him.
