This bathroom update is sponsored by Benjamin Franklin Plumbing®. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Two years ago, we moved into our home and it has been an unexpected labor of love when it comes to repair and maintenance. At the time our priorities were finding a home near our kids’ schools and we wanted something that fit our desire for a mid-century modern aesthetic. We searched for over 6 months and we finally stumbled across our current home and loved the open space, ample storage, and the authentic mid-century modern build. While the house was built in the 1960s, there were huge upgrades and renovations that had been done throughout so we thought we’d be saved from many of the costly repairs that might be needed.
Well, fast forward 2 years later and we’ve definitely spent a small fortune fixing various parts of the home. As it goes with older homes, much of the original infrastructure in place used old methodologies and it’s definitely resulted in a few headaches on our side. While the major issues are mostly resolved, one of the nagging problems we’ve let going for far too long was a leaky faucet in the kids’ bathroom. All day long it would slowly drip (embarrassingly enough we had just been using a cup underneath to catch the water… for the past 2 years!) and kept procrastinating on actually fixing the problem. Finally, though, as we’ve been catching up on our various home projects this year, it was time to tackle this leaky faucet and a bathroom update!
BENJAMIN FRANKLIN SERVICES FOR OUR BATHROOM UPDATE
Finding a knowledgeable and trustworthy service technician is oftentimes the hardest part of starting a home repair project, but for us I knew we wanted to go with Benjamin Franklin Plumbing®. I love that Benjamin Franklin has the backing of a national brand with a 100% satisfaction guarantee but also has the easy convenience of a locally owned and operated business.
I loved that I was able to set up an appointment for our bathroom update with Benjamin Franklin online, I was especially happy to see that I could schedule a time for the next morning! I was provided with a 20-minute courtesy call to alert me that the technician was on his way and before I knew it, the Benjamin Franklin truck was outside our doorstep! Benjamin Franklin actually includes prompt arrival times as part of their guarantee and it’s definitely one of the reasons I’ll continue to call on them – there’s nothing worse than sitting at home waiting for service when you have places to be!
Our technician took one look at our leaky faucet and immediately went to work diagnosing our problem. All Benjamin Franklin service technicians are highly skilled, expertly trained, and licensed – our technician was able to explain everything to me as he was working and the engineer in me was actually glad to understand a bit more about how some of our plumbing system worked. While our technician did come in with quite a repertoire of parts, our system was old and thus had a part that needed special ordering (it’s almost always this case whenever we go to fix anything in our house, lol!).
Not even two days later I received another call from Benjamin Franklin and they said that they had gotten our special part in (how amazing that they can source parts so quickly, right??) and we set up another appointment for our boathroom update, to get everything fixed. When our technician returned, he gave me some inside knowledge about a local Dallas store I could go to in the future if I ever needed special parts and it wasn’t even 15 minutes before our once-leaky sink was as good as new!
Since I figured I’d take advantage of having a plumbing expert at our house, I went on to ask him if he could just do a quick glance-over if there were other plumbing-related issues we should be aware of and I loved that he took the time to go through all of our bathtubs, sinks, and water heaters to give us tips on issues we should be aware of as well as tips to help prolong the life of our current installation.
Dylan has been loving his new working faucet, now I just love that we were able to cross this bathroom update off one more to-do on our home improvement list so easily! It’s such a pleasure when you can find a knowledgeable, courteous, and prompt service repair company and there’s no doubt we will definitely be going back to Benjamin Franklin for any other future plumbing needs!
