Plumbing Repair Durham, N.C. and Maintenance Services
Plumbing Repairs and Maintenance
We specialize in plumbing repairs and maintenance services for light commercial and residential properties located in Durham, and Chapel Hill N.C. We’re just a phone call away and available to inspect, repair and replace fixtures in kitchens and bathrooms at private residences, apartment buildings and business throughout the region. Plumbing fixtures such as sinks and toilets are in constant use, requiring frequent repairs that include removing difficult clogs that are too difficult for most homeowners. When a problem arises that requires expertise and specialized tools, the smart thing to do is hire a professional plumber.
Responding to Plumbing Emergencies
A&A plumbing only sends a licensed plumber when you have an emergency toilet or water line repair. When customers call us, a plumber responds immediately to determine if the problem requires emergency service or routine maintenance. For emergencies, we have all the specialized tools and new replacement parts necessary to complete most repairs in one service call.
In many cases, toilet repair is simple for a knowledgeable plumber who knows how to replace parts inside the tank or make adjustments to existing unit. The parts needed for most toilet repairs require standard sizes, so it is easy to replace components in an hour or less. When a toilet has major problems or is old and inefficient, many customers opt for a toilet replacement instead. Plumbers are able to make recommendations concerning new toilets that use less water or designer toilets with additional features.
New toilet installation may also require replacing water pipes or cleaning drainage systems to ensure the new unit works optimally for many years. If a customer is having other plumbing problems besides toilet drains in bathrooms, we would then do a more detailed analysis to determine the csause of the real issue.

Once the big problem is identified and fixed, then it’s recommended that we inspect and clean other drains and pipes such as your showers stalls, bathtubs, sinks, etc to remove any scale build-up, hard water deposits, and hair that could cause havoc for the rest of your home or light commercial property as a precaution.
Replacing Plumbing Fixtures
Customers with huge water bills may want to consider having a A&A plumbing replace your shower heads and faucets with low flow models instead. While it may seem simple to replace these devices, A&A plumbing has the proper tools and experience to remove the old items and put on the new ones without damaging walls or fixtures. Alternatively, maybe it is time to replace a bathtub or shower stall that is worn, chipped or corroded. We can offer advice on choosing a new model of shower stall or bathtub that will last for many years.
Installing Extra Features
Customers using wheelchairs or senior citizens may want to install easier to access bathtubs or shower stalls. Additional safety features are also available such as handrails to place on bathtubs and walls. A customer with children in their home may want faucet covers and temperature control fixtures installed to prevent injuries. If a customer has problems with hard water sediments staining bathroom fixtures, then they can have a water filtration system installed directly on faucets or near the main water pipe.
Fixing Kitchen Sink Drains
While a plumber is working on bathroom fixtures, it is a good time to have kitchen sinks inspected and repaired. Sinks in kitchens often begin to drain slowly due to a buildup of grease and food particles. Instead of pouring volatile chemicals that can corrode garbage disposal systems or water pipes down kitchen drains, A&A plumbing can use a hydro jetting process to blast away debris. In addition to removing clogs inside a building, the A&A plumbing can work outside by cleaning debris such as problem tree roots from drainage and sewer lines.
Complete Re-piping Services
Older buildings often have multiple problems with water pipes and connectors that require a complete re-piping process. Signs of water pipe problems in a light commercial or residential building include water with a foul odor or discoloration. Customers often notice that the pipes in a building make constant noise as faucets are turned on or off. A building needing re-piping has numerous pipe leaks that are causing damage such as stains and mold on drywall and floors. Customers need to have sections of pipe inspected frequently because the entire building’s plumbing begins to degrade after years of use.
