Plumbing repairs are often a necessary evil when it comes to any plumbing system. Pipes, faucets, fixtures, and pumps all have a shelf life and over time they can wear down or break. 1st Rooter has seen it all over the past two decades and has extensive experience repairing all kinds of plumbing issues. Our plumbers in Hamilton will assess your particular situation and identify the cause of the issue. They will then recommend a course of action that will minimize costs and maximize your plumbing health. Whatever repairs you need, 1st Rooter has the experience and tools to get the job done professionally and quickly.
One of the most annoying and common plumbing issues many Hamilton residents can face is leaks and drips. These water leaks can appear in any section of a plumbing system, and can often occur behind drywall or under sinks. Minor leaks and drips are not often serious concerns, but over time the build up of moisture can lead to mould, and it could be a warning of a serious burst in the near future. Our plumbers in Hamilton are experts at identifying the source of leaks and drips, determining the least invasive way to access them, and repairing or replacing the piping to ensure they remain in perfect working order for years to come.
Much like the rest of Canada, Hamilton and Southern Ontario are at a heightened risk for pipes freezing during the winter months. The water that freezes inside a pipe expands and can easily crack even a solid metal pipe, which can lead to severe water damage once the water thaws. Burst pipes can occur anywhere in a plumbing system, and if they are not caught immediately, could lead to flooding and tens of thousands of dollars in damage to your property. 1st Rooter plumbers respond immediately to a call for assistance during a frozen or burst pipe situation. Once we arrive on site, we will ensure the main water line is switched off to prevent any further flooding. We will then isolate and patch or replace the broken pipe to ensure it is returned to normal working order. After cleaning up any excess water, we will reconnect the main water line and have your home running smoothly again in no time.
Home renovations can be an exciting facelift for your home and can add thousands of dollars in value to your property. While they are ultimately worth it in the end, the process is typically stressful, time consuming, and messy.

Our 1st Rooter plumbers are experts in plumbing remodelling, including piping, fixture installation, and faucet upgrades. We will work closely with you and your other contractors to ensure your home turns out exactly how you had imagined.

If you are building your home from the ground up, or adding an extension on the back of your property, you will go through the process of a basement rough-in. A rough-in is the stage in the construction process where the basic framing of the house has been completed, and the wiring, mechanics, and plumbing are being implemented before the walls and ceiling are installed. This is a crucial stage in any development as without efficient and safe utility installation, your new home could suffer severe issues down the track. Our plumbers in Hamilton have over 25 years of experience installing professional grade plumbing systems in all manner of home types, from condos to stand alone properties. We can provide guidance on the best placement for piping and fixtures and will always aim to keep your costs down without sacrificing on quality service.
Kitec was a popular brand of cross-linked polymer piping installed in tens of thousands of homes across Canada and the United States from 1995 to 2007. This material promised to be cheaper and more resilient than current piping materials and would not rust or crack as quickly as metal or porcelain pipes. This turned out to be greatly exaggerated, and Kitec pipes actually had a significantly shorter lifespan than most conventional plumbing systems. This has led to thousands of Hamilton and GTA residents needing to do extensive plumbing replacements to avoid plumbing emergencies in the future. 1st Rooter has been replacing Kitec systems for over a decade, working closely with homeowners to help them prevent flooding or burst pipes. We map out the entire system that requires replacing, and provide you with a competitive and honest quote for the work. Our plumbers in Hamilton are all fully licensed and insured, so you have rest easy knowing your Kitec replacement in in good hands.

Two of the most essential elements of any plumbing system is the sump pump and sewage pump. A sump pump is typically installed in a basement that exists below the grade line and pumps any excess water that might build up out and away from the property. A sewage pump is installed in the same scenario, but pumps wastewater out from toilets, sinks, or showers that are below the sewer line and require assistance to fight gravity and drain away from the property. When either of these stop working, it can result in significant water damage and flooding in your home, potentially costing a lot of money to resolve. 1st Rooter are the leading plumbing service for sump pump and sewage pump repair in Hamilton and the GTA. Our trained plumbers will arrive at your home in a timely manner and identify the cause of the issue. We will then implement the best possible solution and recommend next steps for ensuring the problem doesn’t happen again.
Hot water tanks have a typical lifespan of 8 to 12 years, depending on the hardness of the water and how much they are used. This means that over the course of a 25 year mortgage, you will likely have to replace your water heater at least twice. Going without hot water is not something anyone wants to deal with, especially in the winter months. We are highly trained in replacing and installing every kind of hot water tank. We will schedule an appointment that works with your routine and arrive when we say we will.
