Contract Plumbing

Families have trusted us with their plumbing for over eighty-five years. But beyond our tenure as your family plumber, we have decades of experience in contract plumbing as well. Any job, big or small, we’ll tackle them all.

And, not just in the Madison area. H. J. Pertzborn has plumbed major commercial projects across Wisconsin, including Metro Milwaukee and the Fox Valley. Contact H. J. Pertzborn at (608) 256-3900 – we’d love to hear about your upcoming construction job.

Design/Build

Let’s build a relationship from the ground up. We can read your blueprints and offer advice and recommendations tailor-made for your project. In fact, our focus on value engineering will often help us find ways to save you money in labor and materials.

Using the design-build method, the owner generally saves money on the overall project. By avoiding a construction loan, the owner also avoids the typical higher interest rates as compared to permanent financing. Most times, an earlier online date can also make the project more profitable. In fact, the design-build method can turn a project that seems unfeasible at first glance into a financially viable opportunity.

And, compressing the project timeline is only the beginning. Other benefits include:

  • Increased accountability by the subcontractor.
  • Single source project delivery.
  • A value based project feedback system.

Project Management

We take project management seriously. We understand that any successful project starts with a good project manager. Our project managers inspire good communication from start to finish – and know how to deliver quality work on schedule. We’ll keep the ball rolling so that your project moves ahead correctly – and without any unpleasant surprises. It’s all part of the service commitment on which we’ve built our reputation.

Excavation Services

We do all of our excavating, boring and plumbing with our own equipment and personnel. And in most cases, we can make sure that we do not disturb established yards or landscaping. By coordinating with local water utilities, we make the project seamless for you. Our company has already replaced over 2,500 systems to date – and that’s why we confidently offer a full limited warranty. Call for your custom quote today.

Sewer Services

We recommend having your businesses sanitary sewer line cleaned annually to help prevent unwanted back-ups. If your sanitary sewer line backs up more often than once a year we recommend videotaping the line. This tells us if there are any breaks, cracks, or separations in the line. If you do have a problem, we offer emergency underground water and sewer pipe repair.

Keeping Your Sewer Lines Clear

Did you know tree roots grow more during the winter months? And that these tree roots will seek out the joints of your sanitary sewer in their quest to find moisture – eventually clogging the pipe. To help prevent this problem, avoid planting trees and shrubs over your sanitary sewer lines.

Other helpful hints for keeping the lines clear:

  • Don’t flush baby wipes or sanitary items down the toilet.
  • Never overfill your garbage disposal with food waste.
  • Don’t put large amounts of paint, wallpaper glue, or drywall mud down your drains.
  • Install lint traps in the sinks where your washing machine discharges. It’s easier to clean a lint trap than a drain line.
