Welcome to the VP Plumbing Blog!

As a locally owned and operated plumbing company in Ames, we’re excited to begin our VP Plumbing blog. In our 20 years of experience, we’ve found that many of the most costly plumbing disasters — think basement floods, burst pipes, and sewage line breaks — could have been avoided in the first place.

As a result, we want to start this blog to offer local plumbing tips, proactive maintenance information, and “what to do if…” scenario responses to hopefully minimize costly plumbing repairs.

Should you find yourself in a situation where you need plumbing services, keep VP Plumbing in mind as a local Ames plumber.

Here’s some more general information about our local plumbing company.

1. We Are Certified Master Plumbers

Being a master plumber isn’t just a meaningless adjective — being a master plumber is like having a black belt in karate. It’s a distinguished certification that plumbers need to earn and maintain.

We’re proud of our master plumber certification, as it means that we’re in the top percentile of plumbers and that we really can offer the best plumbing services around.

In addition to our master plumber certification, VP Plumbing also currently operates with hydronics and medical gas installation licenses. As such, we can perform commercial plumbing services that our competitors just don’t have the skillset to do.

Of course, we’re also licensed, bonded, insured, and members of the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. of Iowa.

When it comes to local plumbing services, we’re experienced and trustworthy — and we have the certifications to prove it.

2. We’ve Been In Business For 20 Years

Twenty years is a lot of water heater installation, sump pump maintenance, and shower repair. We’ve seen just about everything in our two decades of plumbing, so we know how to tackle even the most complex of plumbing problems effectively and efficiently.

Our longevity in business also speaks to our relationship with the greater Ames community. We wouldn’t have lasted this long if we didn’t provide excellent customer service, professionalism, and, of course, plumbing expertise.

3. We Do Residential and Commercial Plumbing

No plumbing project is too big or too small for our local plumbing team. Whether you need to install a toilet in the home or you need water meter splits for your business, we can help.

As a bonus, we’re also available 24 hours a day should an emergency plumbing scenario burst onto the scene.

4. We Use High-Quality Materials

Even the best plumber is only as good as the materials they use. At VP Plumbing, we use high-quality, highly recommended, and long-lasting materials for all of our plumbing services, installations, and repairs.

While plumbing isn’t usually associated with craftsmanship, we view our projects as real works of art. We pay attention to detail and take great pride in the installations and repairs that we do.
