We are new to the Plymouth area and had a sewer back up in our house we had only owned 1 week. We called and were told someone would be there in the afternoon. Then we were called and told around noon. Then we were called and told someone would be there in a half hour. Thanks so much for rushing someone over to remedy our issue. Great communication!!!

When I hear Plymouth Plumbing and Heating, I think Family! They are always there for you and have your back when you need them. I was doing a remodel and lets just say it was bigger than a bread box....and Plymouth Plumbing and Heating was there every step of the way! Jamey was the mastermind in the trenches getting things done, but the whole team was there supporting me. When there was a "bump" in the remodel I could call or text and knew it would be handled. Never had to worry when will it get done. Boom Done!I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Plymouth Plumbing and Heating for ALL your plumbing needs!

Jack and the team at PPH have done a wonderful job on our apartment building heating issue. We had another water heating company out here who could not solve the problem. PPH figured it out and fixed it within 2 hours. Thank you PPH!

We live near Lake Michigan in an older home without a basement and for many years we have experienced problems of water accumulating in the crawlspace area under our main floor. We’ve asked several contractors and plumbers in our area to assess the situation, but none of them have offered any viable solutions. I decided to widen my search for answers and was drawn to the Plymouth Plumbing website. I called them and was able to set up an appointment a couple of days later for a free estimate. About 30 minutes before the plumber was due to arrive, I received a call from his office letting me know that he was running about 45 minutes late. The receptionist asked if I would be willing to wait or prefer to reschedule. I suggested 4 pm that afternoon and he arrived right on time. Jack Dellger is the third generation owner of a family business and has had a lot of experience with these water-related issues. He listened carefully to my questions, checked out the crawlspace, and then walked around the perimeter of the house pointing out where and how water could seep under the house when it rains. He gave me several suggestions about how to change the slope of the land so rain water would drain away from the house; where to seal up the wide cracks between our cement front stoop and the base of the adjacent siding; how to improve on the existing gutters, and where we needed to add additional ones. When I asked him for some recommendations of whom he trusted to do those jobs, he not only provided me with names, but offered to call them for me and see how soon they would be available to come and give us an estimate for the necessary improvements. Although he declined my offer to pay him for his consultation, he said that the next time we had any plumbing problems, he hoped we would give him a call. I enjoyed meeting Jack and appreciated the way he clearly explained everything. We will definitely contact Plymouth Plumbing and Heating for any plumbing issues that we may encounter in the future.

Updated Review: we got the bill and it was about $200 more than we were anticipating. I get that it was a weekend, but almost $600 to clean a main drain? Not happy about that! I wonder how much of that includes the 20 minutes the plumber spent messing around with the auger that was put away wrong from the last service, his words, while he was cursing the last person who used it, under his breath, 🙄Original review: We experienced an unexpected plumbing issue arise during the 4th of July weekend. We called Plymouth Plumbing and Heating, as well as about 10 other companies, on a Sunday of a holiday weekend. They WERE THE ONLY ONE to call us back and send a plumber out! Not all websites that say "24/7 emergency calls" actually mean it, because no one else was able to send a guy out on a Sunday.Thank you for your prompt response. We will call you again and would recommend you to others for a prompt and efficent experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is aging in place?

Aging in place is when seniors are able to live comfortably in the residence of their choice for as long as they desire. Reconfiguring rooms to be as safe as possible for elderly adults is a part of the process. At Plymouth Plumbing and Heating, we provide solutions to lay-out your house, redesign your kitchen, or safety-proof your bathroom from dangerous slip and falls. Together, we can help your loved ones enjoy their twilight years from the safety and comfort of their own specially-designed home.

What are the benefits of aging in place?

Aging in Place is Less Expensive than Retirement Homes
Mom and Dad are getting closer to retirement and you are considering putting them in a nursing home. But the cost is through the roof! A retirement facility can start at $7600 a month. Why not try a more affordable solution through aging in place? Redesigning a home with a few safety precautions for your parents is far less expensive. It even allows seniors to take advantage of Medicare coverage to help pay for in-home help.

Aging in in Place Provides Close Proximity to Family and Friends
Aging in place provides the proximity of friends and family necessary to assist in everyday tasks such as shopping, doctor visits, and social functions. It also fosters the intimacy and companionship that is so critical to emotional health.

Aging in Place is More Comfortable
Your favorite chair, your personal mattress, your curated walk-in closet. As Dorothy said, there really is no place like home. Unlike a cold hospital bed or a generic assisted living facility, aging in place allows seniors to bask in the sights, sounds, and smells they have grown accustomed to in life. It allows them to be surrounded by warm memories in their golden years. It also provides a semblance of privacy that is not always available in a group retirement facility.

Aging in Place Slows Memory Loss and Strengthens Social Networks
Aging in place provides the added benefit of seniors maintaining their current social networks and communities. A study found that seniors who have frequent social contact saw a 70 percent reduction in cognitive decline when compared with more isolated people. Familiar smells, for example, can trigger memory recall. Aging in place provides a plethora of scents, sounds, and sights to keep a senior cognitively engaged.

Aging in Place Maintains Self Determination and Creative Design
After decades of hard work, retirement should be about seniors living the life they determine. Often, nursing homes can hinder this freedom with restrictive meal times and visiting hours. Aging in place creates a more independent lifestyle, allowing seniors to make their own decisions and design their own schedules. They can also control the style of their environment. While remodeling, repainting, or rearranging furniture may not be an option in a retirement facility, it certainly is allowed in your own residence!

What are the recommended house upgrades for seniors?
  • Entrances: Should be easy to enter and exit with walkers, wheelchairs, canes, groceries, or babies. Create at least one entrance without steps for the most convenient mobility.
  • Bathrooms: Can be the most dangerous room. Sinks, showers, and toilets should be accessible to seniors and set to the right height and mobility. Most ideal? A door opening of at least 32 inches and a curbless walk-in shower.
  • Kitchen: The gathering place for camaraderie (and food!). Strive for an open space with accessible counter heights, pullout shelves, and open storage. Blend natural and artificial light for beautiful design.
  • Bedrooms: Consider a bedroom on the first floor, making it ideal for aging parents to avoid stairs.
  • Windows: As we get older, more light is necessary for reading and other basic tasks. Enlarging windows is a marvelous way to achieve this, as well as adding scenic views like watching your grandchildren play.
  • Open design: The overall design of a home should be open for greater freedom of movement, flexibility in furniture layout, and spaciousness. Sliding walls are extremely effective because they allow multi-purpose rooms.
  • Outdoors: Covered entrances, wraparound decks, planters, and container gardens help connect the home to the surrounding neighborhood. This fosters a greater sense of community and connection. Gardens are especially aesthetically pleasing and can be therapeutic as well.
  • Smaller homes: Consider the small back house as another viable option for parents of adult children.
  • Outlets, switches, and doorknobs: Outlets, doorknobs, and light switches should be placed at heights optimal for retirees. Also, consider switches and doorknobs that are easier to use if a resident has arthritis or is injured.
  • Be sure to call us at Plymouth Plumbing and Heating for all your aging-in-place needs, ideas, and installations. We are here to help!
