Almost every homeowner can relate to suddenly having a plumbing problem pop up out of the blue. A busted water heater, leaking pipe, clogged drains and water heater problems can cause you major headaches when you least expect it, especially when there isn’t an easy way to find a handyman in your area. Even if you can contact a plumber, it’s often unclear how much the repair will cost before the job is done, and you may end up paying hundreds of dollars in a travel fee for a simple repair.
On the other hand, things are not looking too rosy for plumbers and do-it-yourselfers. Plumbers often have no real understanding of the task at hand until they arrive at the property, and most of the time they are not paid until the job is complete. This can cause problems in managing their business and also cause financial insecurity in their daily life. Additionally, many installers must devote a significant portion of their time to administrative tasks, marketing, and responding to customer concerns and inquiries in order to successfully run their operations. All in all, it’s safe to say that the plumbing industry is in desperate need of transformation. Thankfully, Grand Comfort appears to be on the right track to bring about much-needed change.

What GC Plus offers installers
GC Plus provides a platform where people can easily connect with plumbers and home improvement professionals across the country. This platform allows both independent installers and large companies to take full control of their revenue, streamline their workflow and focus on what they do best. This, in turn, leads to a multitude of benefits for the end customer, which we will discuss later in this article. But first, let’s dive into some core benefits of the GC plus model for those who make the effort.
An easy way to adopt new technology
In this day and age, the companies that are quick to adopt new technologies are the ones that tend to be successful. However, new technologies often come with a high price (and risk). With this in mind, GC Plus offers a complete network of affordable software and tools covering appointment scheduling, appointment booking, video calling with clients and marketing.
GC Plus offers more than just leads; They make appointments on behalf of the plumbers. In fact, they guarantee around 3-5 appointments per day (on average) and even allow DIYers to use their systems to generate more appointments as they keep growing.
An opportunity to represent an established brand
Installers under the GC Plus umbrella benefit from representing an established brand, including access to a fully clad van.
In addition, GC provides access to all the necessary equipment to complete the missions.
Finally, GC plus offers continuous seven-day support from a remote team to help with tasks like planning your daily schedule, following up clients, paperwork and bookkeeping, and even a marketing strategist who works with Plumbed to ensure they gain more market share in their area.
What GC Plus offers its customers
Let’s now take a look at some of the key benefits that GC Plus offers customers, whether it’s an emergency or a planned DIY job.
One of the standout features of GC Plus is the video calling feature, which allows customers to connect with plumbing professionals remotely.
During these calls, the plumbers will help diagnose the problem and, when possible, provide step-by-step instructions on how to fix the problem yourself, saving you time and money.
Immediate offers and fair prices
With the prices you no longer remain in the dark until the job is done. With GC Plus, all prices and costs are settled in advance. In addition, there are no additional fees such as overtime because the installers can see the price to be paid in advance and accept or reject the job. All the customer has to do is enter their zip code and provide details of the problem and the repairs required.
24/7 emergency service
As previously mentioned, plumbing issues can arise at any time of the day. Therefore, you need to be able to access a plumber outside of normal business hours should an emergency arise in your home. Fortunately, GC Plus instantly connects customers to plumbers for a wide range of emergency plumbing services, including sewers, plumbing, drainage problems, boiler problems and plumbing problems.
Finally, all independent contractors and plumbing companies within the GC Plus platform have been privately verified. This means customers do not have to worry about the validity and trustworthiness of the repair professional.
It looks like on-demand is finally being implemented across the country, which will help make plumbers’ lives easier while bringing more value to customers and eliminating many of the hassles of calling a handyman. You can currently access the GC Plus website to request or use support apartment to automatically match any project on your to-do list with a local plumbing professional in 60 seconds with one click and upfront pricing.
