Warranties & Satisfaction Guarantee

Shorty’s Plumbing & Heating Inc.

3370 Wilkes Ave
Winnipeg, MB R3S 1A8  

We believe it is very important that every plumber assure the quality of their work in some way. The most common ways to do this are with a parts and labour warranty and sometimes – in the best cases – with a satisfaction guarantee on top of all this. A satisfaction guarantee assures you, the one footing the bill, that the work you pay for is not finished until you’re satisfied that it’s done.

While warranties and satisfaction guarantees are fairly common in some Canadian cities, only 30% of plumbing services publically offer them in Greater Winnipeg. However, it’s good to see that Shorty’s Plumbing & Heating is heading in the right direction by offering a satisfaction guarantee.
