Plumbing Apprenticeships in HOUSTON, Texas

Plumbing Apprenticeship in Texas?

If you are considering a career in the trades, specifically as a plumber, then a plumbing apprenticeship in Texas might be the perfect path. Texas is experiencing a significant shortage of skilled tradespeople, and the demand for plumbing services is increasing. Here are a few reasons why you should consider a Texas plumbing apprenticeship.

Should You Consider Becoming a Professional Plumber?

Texas, even more than other US states, is currently experiencing a large shortage of skilled tradespeople, including plumbers. If you do decide to become a licensed plumber, you will likely have a steady stream of work available to you. Additionally, plumbing services are always in demand, regardless of the economy and means are more likely to enjoy job security, even during tough economic times.

Skilled tradespeople, including plumbers, can earn a very competitive wage. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual salary for plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters is now over $62,000. Additionally, many plumbers have the opportunity to work overtime or take on side jobs, which can significantly increase their earnings..

As plumbing apprentice, you will work alongside experienced plumbers and learn through on-the-job training. This learning method can be more effective than traditional classroom learning because you get to apply what you learn in a real-world setting. Additionally, apprenticeships often offer a variety of experiences, which can help you determine which area of plumbing you want to specialize. And, the more you specialize, the better you get at those important plumbing tasks.

While a college education can take four or more years, a plumbing apprenticeship typically takes around four years to complete. As a plumber apprentice, you can enter the workforce earlier and can earn money sooner. And because you are learning on the job, you gain practical experience that will be valuable when you start your career.

Meaningful Work

Finally, many people find that a career in the trades, including plumbing, is more meaningful than others and certainly more than they expected. As a plumber, you are helping people solve real-world problems and improve their quality of life. Additionally, because plumbing services are always in demand, you will likely always have work available, giving you a sense of purpose and fulfillment. A plumbing apprenticeship in Texas can be an excellent choice for someone considering a trade career. With high demand, competitive wages, hands-on learning, quick entry into the workforce, and meaningful work, there are many reasons why you should consider becoming a plumber.

Had thrown organs peels in the soap causing a back up in my sink and laundry room. Michael arrived quickly and flushed out the clog we had. Found out there was also some grease build up and a mix of dish pod powder!Really great and stress relieving experience 👌 Highly recommend!

Absolutely cannot say enough about this company! I called on a Saturday when 7 other companies turned me away. Day prior had another plumber out that was unable to resolve my issue. Heaton sent out Nathan, he was professional,polite and he and Mike worked 5 hours until the issue was resolved. Few days later Mike made a follow up call, I will never use any other plumbing company.

Heaton Plumbing has made 2 house calls for us over a span of 3 years. Both occasions brought swift correction to our problems. Heaton Plumbing is ALWAYS professional, courteous, and quickly finds the root cause of the problem. Heaton ALWAYS has a reasonable solution based on experience that has the customer in mind.In both cases, Heaton Plumbing called before coming, showed up on time at the early part of the 2 hour window, very quickly resolved the problems.I will ALWAYS recommend them!

Ok. So I’m conflicted on whether or not I had a good experience with this company. First I got a great price on a new tankless water heater install but this was apparently due to a previous employee failing to give a proper quote. Plumbers came to install and took the day to get it done. That was expected. When I went to pay though I discovered that the plumber had installed the wrong unit. Turns out the wrong unit didn’t have an internal recirculating pump. That is ok because I don’t have the plumbing to utilize the recirculating pump properly anyways. Now I had the issue that the quoted price was for the more expensive unit. The company graciously gave me a refund for the difference in unit costs and I continued on my way. The units are identical except for the recirculating pump so it’s not really a big deal. Minus one star that any of these issues even occurred because honestly, they shouldn’t have but given that they worked with me, gave me a further discount on an already mistakenly good price, I would definitely recommend them to anyone given their honesty and great customer service. This company is one of the few companies remaining with integrity. They care about fixing their mistakes and making it right with their customers. Thanks Heaton. I look forward to working with you in the future.

All in all, a good experience. I’m a new customer and was unsure of the service. They ordered a new faucet for me. Very pleased with the selection. Actually they texted a pic and I approved it. I own a 100 yr. old house, and Mike seemed to know his way around my old pipes. They answered my questions. This job was done today. So far….satisfied.

Tosha and Breedon from Heaton Plumbing came to our home to work on a leak that was worked on previously by others. They were super friendly, provided great service and their work was superb! We couldn't have asked for a better company to service our issues and they sent us two of their best employees to provide their service and expertise. We are so happy with the work done. We will definitely call them for all our future plumbing work or issues. Thanks again Heaton Plumbing, Tosha and Breedon!!

PRICEY!!! They came out around the time they said they would but charged "after hours" fee on top of a service call fee ($185)!!! Then charged another $300 for a drain clearing that took less than 20 mins.

Really glad they were able to come out same day and get the job done. Our pipes burst due to the winter freeze and I had called several other companies but of course due to high demand no one was available today. Tosha and Marty were sent out to repair the pipes and they were in and out in less than 2 hours. We’re super thankful for them and Heaton Plumbing! Would definitely recommend them.

Mike showed up early and did an outstanding job! I highly recommend Heaton Plumbing. They are the only one who responded on a holiday weekend. I had a busted pipe and had to turn the water to the house off. Mike made it only a small inconvenience, when it could have been disastrous!

I contacted Heaton after a not so handy handyman attempted to install my new kitchen sink to old pipe and failed. Not knowing what he was doing the armature cut the pipe flush with the wall and found he could not connect new pipe and sink. You get what you paid for; best to do it right the first time. Two incredibly professional plumbers, a male and a female came promptly at 8:00 am. reviewed the work and gave me a price. They worked together as a team to make a difficult repair complete quickly and efficiently. The end price was way beyond what I expected for such a difficult job. I understand why they have a AAA Better Business rating. Tosha and the entire team at Heaton rock!!! I will definitely use them again for other work I need done around the house.

I called at about 11:30 and a lady named Christina said a plumber could be there in a few hours. 30 minutes later the plumber showed up.He asked what the exact problem was and I explained it. He looked at the fixture, verified drains and clean out locations and told me the issue was probably a minor clog. A few minutes later the toilet was flushing exactly right. The plumber said we needed a new commode or we need to buy an auger. We are buying an auger this weekend.Qualified professionals doing quality work at a medium price. Fast and thorough.Overall an excellent service.

We are looking to have the washer and dryer moved into the garage. This would require supply and drain lines installed. I was given excellent explanations as to why or why not something could be done. A day later they called with another idea alternative to digging a tunnel. I felt that they always have the customer in mind. I will be calling them today to finalize dates. You can not go wrong with choosing Heaton Plumbing.

I needed my gas valve replaced so that my dryer could be hooked up. I initially tried on my own, but the job proved too complicated and gas is not something you want to be unsure of! Heaton took excellent care and didn't make me feel bad or embarrassed for attempting anything on my own. Excellent communication on all things (arrival time, what the job entails/requires, cost) and very pleasant. They come out with a truck full of all the supplies you might need to get the job done as quickly as possible. Very professional and efficient. I recommend them and will use them again.

Absolutely a wonderful experience! From start to finish everything I could hope for. Communication was friendly and transparent. Nathan, Josh, and Christina were so helpful and knowledgeable. I felt like my project, even being residential was a top priority. Appointments and start/ finish times were kept and the inspection passed the first time with flying colors. I will actively look for reasons, in the future to use this group again! I can’t say enough good things about these people.

Michael did everything expected, the job was done in as timely a manner as the weather allowed. My situation was not a normal installation due to an older home, he reached out to the city inspector to assure that the end product would be approved when he was quoting the job. Others will not make this effort, he covered his bases from the start which made for a successful job for him and his client. If I need any further plumbing help, I will call Heaton Plumbing and will recommend them when asked.
