"Best service and price in the state! Our water heater died Saturday morning. I called at noon and we were up and running by 5:00 pm on a Saturday! Leroy made sure we knew all options and prices up front. Our water heater was extremely old and out of code. I expected the bill to be outrageous for weekend service and because of all of the changes that SHOULD be made to get it to code. I was pleasantly surprised. It is refreshing to deal with an honest company, especially in a situation such as this. Thank you!!!"

Standard-tank water heaters
Most homes use a standard tank water heater. These have a gas burner, or electric element to heat a large-capacity reservoir of water. It’s constantly running so when you turn on a faucet for hot water, it sends that heated water out and starts heating more. However, because there is a gallon capacity on the size of your water heater, you may run out of hot water if you run it for too long.
Typically, most homes have 40 gallon or 50-gallon water heaters. Large homes might require a bigger unit, though. Overall, the cost of the unit and installation of a standard water heater is cheaper than a tankless unit.
Tankless Water Heaters – Are they the best option?
Tankless water heaters are a newer technology, but are catching on because they take up less space than a standard water heater, and they can provide endless hot water. Instead of holding a large reservoir of water, the unit heats water “on-demand,” or as you need it. This means it might take longer to get warm water to your faucet unless you have a re-circulating system installed, but once it’s hot, it will stay that way.
Tankless water heaters are also more efficient than standard units. Sometimes the access to unlimited hot water means people use more, eliminating potential energy savings. The main drawback of tankless water heaters is the installation cost, which usually can be more than double the price of a standard unit.
Tankless water heaters are a good option if you are not concerned about the maintenance, and higher costs involved with repairs.

I called Leroy to help with my water heater. He gave me a fair price on a new unit including installation and I am pleased with the process. I will be calling Leroy for my future plumbing needs.
If you are looking to get your water heater fixed or replaced, I can highly recommend Leroy!! I bought an old home to restore and found the water heater needed replaced. Leroy came out on time and did an outstanding job without gouging my pocketbook!
Can’t thank you enough for helping me out in a pinch! with most companies, short notice isn’t a “thing” but Leroy was happy to help out, arrived on location shortly after me calling him and had my water heater replaced in no time at a very fair price! If you’re looking for an honesty, friendly, professional , and no haggle guy, this is it and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks again!
