During this time he not only worked but went to school and completed his Associate’s Degree. Through hard work he has progressed in his profession and received his license as a Journeyman Plumber. Joe has experience in a wide variety of plumbing areas from heavy industrial, commercial, new construction, and remodel, but still enjoys the challenges of the repair business the best. He enjoys doing the work himself and getting right along side his employees to complete any job to see it is done right and to teach his employees by example. Joe has also worked internationally doing a big commercial project for the The Condado Plaza in Puerto Rico. Due to his professional work and integrity, Joe has been requested to go back on several occasions to do restaurant remodel projects for the same hotel/casino.
