What’s the Story Behind our Slogan, “The Punctual Plumber”?

We know that dealing with plumbing issues are stressful enough on their own. The last thing you want is a plumber that doesn’t show up on time and leaves you stranded for hours while your plumbing problem gets worse.

At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, we take your time very seriously! And we make it a point not to make you wait. In fact, we stand by our on-time guarantee that states, “if there is any delay, it’s you we pay.” That’s right, if we’re not on time, we PAY YOU $5.00* per each minute late up to $300.00.
