Home/About Us

Buddy Mintz Plumbing Service has been serving Wilmington and surrounding areas for more than 20 years. With a beginning in plumbing construction, Buddy now devotes his time to service and installation where he and his crew provide a friendly and personal touch.

Plumbing is a very important aspect of your home and quality work by an experienced professional is vital to provide proper repair and installation to avoid plumbing problems that could possibly result in expensive water damage if left untreated and may even reduce your home's value.

Untreated water damage can result in the growth of dangerous mold spores that may result in poor air quality that may even lead to respitory problems, poor health and sickness.
