Don't let an incomplete home inspection
put you under water after the sale

Plumbing problems that are overlooked or dismissed before the sale can turn your dream home into a nightmare

Why Do I need a Pre-Sale Plumbing Inspection?


More and more recent home buyers are calling me to fix things that should have been caught in the home inspection but were missed. These aren't small problems either. Its terrible because they should have been able to negotiate the selling price down based on the repairs needed.


Some even tell me they would have passed on that house if they knew about the problems before the sale was final.

Did you know that you can use needed repairs as leverage to negotiate the price when buying a house? When you know what repairs will be needed, you can make an informed decision to negotiate or even pass on a house before you get stuck with it.


The last thing you want is for your new home to turn into a nightmare that drains your bank account. Get peace of mind knowing that you're not missing problems.

What Vince's Customers Are Saying


The best thing about Vince, is that when finished, the area is left neat, clean and done.

My father in law, first started using Vince for backflow valve inspections at our funeral home. From that initial call, we have used Vince for our plumbing needs … commercial and residential. He is responsive to emergency situations, and, makes sure the job is complete and well done to meet and exceed expectations.

If he detects another area of concern, he is certain to make appropriate recommendations and follow-up with a plan of action… he is capable to handle the smallest job or tackle the largest project (such as sewer lines) which involve a lot of hard labor.

Safety is his key concern, and,Vince makes sure the job meets all standards. The best thing about Vince, is that when finished, the area is left neat, clean and done. No Worries

He has bailed me out of many jams

Vince is fantastic with all sorts of plumbing and steam heating. He has bailed me out of many jams. Vince is the complete package.

When he digs through a wall to replace a pipe, he is able to plaster and paint the wall when he is done to get the room back to normal again. When he digs through the floor to replace a pipe, he is able to tile the floor to normal appearance again.

With the steam heating, he is innovative and educational. He is willing to explain the problem and the solution clearly to the owner. Vince is not afraid to tackle the tough projects that require significant work and perseverance. He gives you a fair price for all work he does. He is willing to come out immediately when there is an emergency.

Our sump pump failed at the worst possible time (2 am during flooding rains). We used the emergency contact number and he was able to get me scheduled the next morning. Vince got here quick and saved me from possible disaster. He stopped the water from ruining my entire basement.

I'd recommend Vince to anyone in the Pittsburgh area with any plumbing issues.
