Below you will find information about the company and the employees of FRE Plumbing Service Inc. We like to let our customers know a little about the company history and our employees. We feel that it gives information to the customer on our character and work ethics.
FRE Plumbing Service Inc has been serving the citizens of Washington and surrounding counties fulltime since 1993 with residential and commercial plumbing services. President, Steven C. Fuchs is a local resident and businessman. Mr. Fuchs brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his customers since his start as a plumber's helper dating back to the late 1970s. FRE Plumbing Service Inc has continuously grown over the past 20 years having outgrown 2 previous shops and places of operation, to moving into our brand new shop facility in 2008 which we now occupy at 111 Harding St. in Washington.
FRE Plumbing prides itself in providing timely and responsible service to its customers. We answer calls 24 hours a day, return calls within 30 minutes of receiving the call, and try extremely hard to be on time and perform our plumbing repairs quickly and accurately. Our normal working hours are 8am to 5pm Monday thru Friday. Weekend work can be scheduled in advance if needed however additional charges may apply for afterhours work.
FRE Plumbing uses state of the art tools and equipment in all its plumbing jobs. We use high pressure Jetter Machines for high pressure removal of grease in drain lines, various sizes of Electric Power Snakes to remove roots and debris from clogged drains and sewer lines, and have vast experience in the installation of Tankless Water Heaters (a growing trend). We are a Goulds Pump Systems Certified Dealer and do repair and install water pumps. FRE owns its own backhoe and can perform jobs which require excavation or trenching without delay, whereas, other plumbers may have to waste valuable customer time and money to rent or secure a backhoe for use.
