Proud to Be Manitoba’s First Certified Mechanical Service Contractors Company

Since 1984, Derksen Plumbing and Heating has strove to be the name people turn to for residential and commercial plumbing in Winnipeg. We have taken a large step in reaching that goal by becoming Manitoba’s first certified mechanical service contractors company.

Adding to our COR certification, our MSCC certification helps Derksen Plumbing and Heating stand out as being one of the best in our industry. This certification is reserved for those service providers who have a track record of excellence. That’s not all though. To receive certification from the Mechanical Service Contractors of Canada, a company also has to prove that it’s willing to go beyond service by providing ongoing support and customer care. Lastly, we had to prove that we could carry out our business while following stringent safety measures.

In order to be recognized as an MSCC Certified Contractor, our company had to prove we are industry leaders. We did this by employing MSCC Certified Technicians who have each passed a written examination testing their skills and practices. Their professionalism and dedication is also taken into account when being certified. Before taking these tests, our technicians took part in an apprenticeship training program.

Not only does this certification speak to the level of quality you can expect from Derksen, but it guarantees we will always be at the forefront of the industry. That’s because the Mechanical Service Contractors of Canada also provides ongoing training and educational programs. This means Derksen will be offering the most cutting-edge services as efficiently as possible at all times.

If you’re in the Winnipeg area and have any issues with your heating or plumbing, contact Derksen today. We’ll be happy to show you what can be expected from a MSCC Certified Contractor. Day or night, call our service line at 204-944-3444 so we can begin solving your problem as soon as possible.

Replace Your Sump Pump Backwater Valve and Get a Rebate!

Every homeowner cringes at the idea of their basement taking on flooding. Unfortunately, it seems to happen more than it should, thanks to backed up sewers and extreme weather conditions. For many people, this threat can be mitigated with a sump pump and backwater valve. At the moment, if you’re one of these people and you qualify, you can actually get a rebate for installing these systems and making your home better equipped to deal with flooding.

The City of Winnipeg and Province of Manitoba are currently offering a rebate program to subsidize homeowners who are looking to protect their basements from flooding. As of September 2013, only $875,000 of the available $3 million has been used, meaning you still have time to claim your subsidy. But hurry, as they are given out on a first-come, first-served basis and applications are currently taking six to seven weeks to process.

A sump pump is one of the best ways to protect your home from the damage of flooding. While it can’t stop flooding from happening, both pedestal and submersible sump pumps work to clear the water from your home.

While the city offers a rebate, you will still need a qualified plumber to install these systems. Consider Derksen Plumbing and Heating for the job. Since 1984, we have been the go-to company for plumbing in Winnipeg. Our expertise, service and dedication will help you make the most out of your share of that $3 million. Better to call us for help installing a sump pump or backwater valve than because your basement has taken on gallons of water and property has been ruined.

You can apply for your rebate through the city’s website or contact them by phone at 311. We at Derksen can be contacted, day or night, at 204-944-3444. We look forward to helping you achieve peace of mind.
