How can I contact Vanguard Plumbing?

At Vanguard Plumbing & Sewer, we have tried to make getting in touch with us as easy as possible for new and returning customers. First, you can call (773) 633-6139 during business hours to connect with one of our team members. Or you can just send the same number a text message which contains your name and reason for contact. Finally, you can email us at vanguardplumbing@gmail.com or fill out any of the contact forms found throughout our website.

Does Vanguard offer free plumbing estimates?

This question has two answers – depending on the circumstances. If a customer can share images of the plumbing problem, the workspace and any damage that’s taken place then we can do our best to provide an estimate over the phone. This costs nothing but time on the customer’s part as they need to get the right images and deliver them to us. If that’s an impossibility, we will discuss the costs of an inspection visit before sending a plumber to your property.

Vanguard was the first company to fully assess and accurately determine what needed to be done. Two other companies failed. Very happy with all aspects of Vanguard’s service.

Margaret U.
Chicago, IL

I provided photos first, but it still warranted a visit to my home to inspect. The crew of two knew what to expect, did clean cuts, welds, and work. Professional company to work with.

Curt S.

The work was done quickly, neatly, and came in under the estimated cost. They were also friendly and informative. Will definitely call them again for the next job in my home.
