Vanguard Plumbing & Sewer – Video Inspection Services

Vanguard Plumbing & Sewer is proud to offer our customers the latest in video inspection services for residential sewers and drains. Our RIDGID® video camera inspection technology makes what used to be a messy, lengthy process, simple and easy for you and our team. These cameras are amazing when used in tandem and help us uncover what’s wrong with your pipes and lines much faster than ever before!

While this type of video camera inspection isn’t as cheap as an old-fashioned plumbing visit, it’s far more effective at finding the cause of your issues – whether there’s a blockage that will only get worse, tree roots invading your pipes, or your lost wedding ring. Vanguard’s experts will find it and show it to you in high definition!

Here are a few more benefits to getting a video inspection of your drains and sewer lines from Vanguard Plumbing & Sewer:

• Reduces overall project times by eliminating the need for troubleshooting methods that require additional time and money to complete.
• Limits the damage to your property by removing the need to dig up large sections of your yard or tear open large sections of wall or flooring.
• Provides our customers with a visual representation of the actual problem – no need to take our word for it when you can see it with your own eyes!
• Eliminates the stress that always comes from trying to work with contractors around your neighbors’ property. In Chicago, neighbors can be extremely close!

Vanguard’s camera inspections are the best way to see what’s happening on the inside of a home’s pipes. They’re a great way to find answers to questions normally only asked in a plumbing emergency. Plus, they could be of benefit to you when working with your insurance company after the fact. They’re also a fantastic way to determine the condition of pipes in a home you’re considering buying before you purchase. Call (773) 633-6139 is all it takes to schedule an inspection today!

Vanguard Plumbing & Sewer – Faucet Repair & Replacement

Traditionally, the kitchen, bathroom, or shower faucet was nondescript and utilitarian at best, ugly at worst. Thankfully, that’s all changed today. In fact, faucets have become one of the best ways to show off your individuality and taste – not to mention get some really great features too. Yes, the modern faucet is anything you want it to be – wand, sprayer, purifier, and even hands-free! If you can dream it up, there’s a good chance a designer has already done so and it’s available on shelves now.

At Vanguard, we think of ourselves as the faucet specialists. It’s one of the jobs we love to do because it gives us a chance to put a smile on our customer’s face every single time. It never gets old to see their delight when the job is done and they have the faucet they’ve always wanted – or, if they had an issue we resolved, a faucet that really works. It’s relatively quick, won’t break the bank, and as easy as calling (773) 633-6139 today.

Common Faucet Brands

Your faucets can say as much or as little about you as you desire. But, don’t be fooled, they do say something. If your faucets are ancient, rusted-out hulks of yesteryear, why not upgrade to something as beautiful as it is functional? Vanguard can assist you in changing the way you look at faucets. We work with all brands including:

Vanguard Plumbing & Sewer – Hot Water Heater Service

Call For An Estimate – By Phone If Possible!

While Vanguard Plumbing & Sewer is all about going above and beyond for our customers, and our free estimates when possible are a part of that, sometimes it’s not possible to provide enough information about a sink project to allow us to do so. If a customer can provide us with the make and model of the current sink, the same info on the replacement model, images of the countertop from above and below the sink’s placement, the surface material the counter’s made of, the water connections below the sink (with all products and objects removed), etc. we can try to give an estimate, but only a phone call will tell you if we can or not. So, call (773) 633-6139 today and learn more.

Vanguard Plumbing & Sewer – Garbage Disposal Service

One of the greatest technologies to come into our everyday lives, without much fanfare to be honest, was the kitchen sink garbage disposal. No longer did we have to bag up our leftovers before throwing them out to keep our homes from smelling awful, no, now we simply put those pesky leftovers right down the drain and, with the flick of a switch, they magically disappeared without clogging our drain. Well, not magically, but it sure seemed that way when they were first introduced.

Today, garbage disposals have become lean, mean shredding machines that make getting rid of unwanted food items a much simpler task than it used to be. But, even with all the advancements, there are still times when a garbage disposal needs some help, or, if its use is spent, to be replaced altogether. Never fear though – Vanguard is the garbage disposal expert and will have you back in working order before you know it. One call to (773) 633-6139 is all it takes!

Common Garbage Disposal Brands

No matter what brand of garbage disposal you own, Vanguard’s professionals can quickly and easily have it back up and running – whether it’s a repair or replacement. Here are a few of the more common garbage disposal brands we deal with:

Vanguard Plumbing & Sewer – Custom Re-Pipe Projects

Here in Chicago, one of the most common calls we get from homeowners and property managers is for what’s known as a re-pipe project – especially in old buildings. Re-pipe projects are aimed at updating all of the pipes a structure uses – from galvanized to copper. This is more than a code requirement – it’s a health and safety issue. Pipes don’t always age well.

At Vanguard, we have years of experience in re-pipe projects. We know what the jobs take and have the expertise, the resources, and the understanding of architecture needed to complete the project on-time and on-budget. With our warranty on labor, you can trust Vanguard to get the job done right and stand firmly behind the work. It’s how we operate.
