John Sutter was super awesome rebuilding my kitchen faucet and saving me $$$! This is why LBA is my “go-to” for my home repairs!!!
Have used LBA several times over the years. Always very professional, very skilled, courteous. Pricing is very fair. Would recommend higly.
Kent and his trainee Nathaniel did a very nice job. Kent was quick to diagnose the problems at hand and then they made the necessary repairs. Unfortunately my old pipes are not as good as the plumbers. There is more work to do later. Plumbing is not cheap so use the coupons on their website.
Angelena was a very knowledgable plumber that gave great advice to a new homeowner.
The technician did a great job and gave us some tips on when to change filters, etc
Nick Larkins is AWESOME - knowledgeable & professional
Checked all operations in cooling mode for the air conditioner. Replace furnace filter with customer. Checked all electrical and refrigeration components outdoors. Found a fault in the voltage enhancement system. Customer chose bronze repair at this time allowing me to perform a voltage in Hantzmon system repair and performance enhancement system repair. Cleaned out housing and coil of outdoor unit. System is now operating within factory specifications.
Upon arrival pop up assembly to master bath lavatory had been disassembled due to a leak. Work done: Replaced pop up assembly Replaced Studor vent.
Checked thermostat in suite 209 for northwest corner office and suite 204 for middle office. Found both thermostats not passing pressure to damper and preventing dampers form closing. Thermostats need to be replaced. Informed Michelle and she approved thermostat replacement. Located stats at local vendor and pick up and returned to install stats. Verified operation of dampers and thermostats.
We arrived to perform an inspection of existing boiler equipment. During the inspection we performed a combustion analysis and found an excessive amount of carbon monoxide building up within the flue. The CO in the flue was reading over 5100 ppm. We shut down the system at the disconnect and went outside to inspect the chimney. We then found that one of the stacks was missing a chimney/flue cap which could possibly have allowed something to block the combustion gases from escaping. Also, while inspecting the boiler we found white flaky residue caused by combustion gases on the outer case where the combustion gas is leaking into the living space. There was a lot of rust build up as well that leads us to believe that there is a breech within the heat exchanger that is allowing water to escape the circuit and cause the corrosion. The steel expansion tank also has signs of a breech with water marks running down the side also accompanied by corrosion. We red tagged the boiler due to hazardo
Upon arrival the customer had low pressure in her shower head whenever she turned it on. She said that she had just got a water heater installed a few months ago and thatâ€™s when the problem started. I cleaned the shower head as best as I can and it started working better. I noticed that she had hard water and gave her paper work on new water softeners.
Today I completed your annual heating tune up, I checked all safety and electrical devices to ensure your system is running safely and efficiently, I cleaned system and performed combustion analysis, checked for proper heating transfer, everything tested as it should at this time, thanks for choosing Lba, Eli

Upon arrival upstairs womenâ€™s lavatory was not draining. Also, searched for source of water damage in downstairs menâ€™s restroom. 2 leaks were found. One was a slow drip on a dielectric union to be addressed at a later date. The other was coming from the outside of a 4â€ vent stack in janitor closet. Water that got onto floor would travel down the 4â€ to the first floor. Work done: Augered sink drain and flushed with water. Caulked around 4â€ cast iron. Cleaned work space.
Checked all operations for all four systems. Replaced all four furnace filters upon customers request. Cleaned out all housings of furnaces and performed a combustion analysis. Tested all safety sensors. Found all four voltage enhancement systems that operate the air movement system to be running out of specifications replaced all four for the price of three giving the customer a good customer discount. Performed two humidifier tuneups Found one humidifier not operational at this time. Will return 01/14/2019 to perform a silver humidification install. Checked all operations of all four units systems are now operating properly at this time.
Customer took me to the basement where the water heater was leaking water from the temperature and pressure relief valve. After showing options customer chose the band aid repair. I drained water heater and replaced t&p valve refilled tank and purged out air. I checked water pressure and it was 115 psi. I recommend to install a pressure reducing valve. Customer declined at this time. No warranty on repair do to elevated pressure.
Upon arrival I found single handle Grohe kitchen faucet not getting equal pressure on cold side of fixture, reversed hot and cold and back flushed fixture. Recommended to customer that this was a repair only and would have no warranty, replacement would be needed if problem re-occurs.
