It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that reviews on the Internet should always be read with a grain of salt. (Check if there are a string of them written on the same day.) But everyone should also be careful of the supposed neighborhood guides as well. We bought a new house a few months [...]
I asked Richard Dwyer to bring me some photographs and material from the Dwyer archives to decorate our walls, and some of the images are great. The one above, taken somewhere in Alexandria in the 1950's, is of the original founder of Dwyer--he's the man on the far left. I thought it was worth sharing, [...]
Dwyer Plumbing recently sponsored a hole at St. Mary's Golf Tournement, in support of St. Mary's Catholic School in Alexandria. A good customer asked for support; St. Mary's parishoners have been good to Dwyer businesses, so we decided it was worth it. None of our management plays golf, so we let one of our employees [...]
We noticed yesterday that Dwyer Plumbing was chosen as an Editor's Pick for Home Contractor You Can Trust 2013 in this month's Washingtonian Magazine. Yay for us!
My wife and I are buying our first house, and during the contract back and forth we were offered the option for a home warranty which would have cost the seller $450, instead we asked for a $500 credit; the seller conceded.

My wife and I are buying our first house; it needs a new HVAC system and water heater. I'm glad I work where I work, because I was well aware of the state of the equipment from the very first time we saw the inside of the house when we were just "browsing." Since we've [...]
Last night my wife told me she wanted to watch something short and funny--it was a long day at work for her. So I turned on Netflix and tried to make a quick choice. Saturday Night Live's "Parody Commercials" it was; it turns out they've done quite a few parody commercials every plumber can appreciate. [...]
Water quality is required by state and federal regulations to be monitored; Fairfax Water Authority took 13,000 samples over last year to come up with their quality tables that they have released into their nine page yearly report. If you're curious how safe our water is you should give it a read; the short answer is: very safe. [...]
