About Barnegat Light Plumbing
Barnegat Light Plumbing is a neighborhood family business started by Leonard and Joan Wieczorek (Better know as Mom and Pop!) way back in 1959 with an emphasis on high quality and fast professional service. As Pop says, there's no money in callbacks! And as usual he is right!
Over the years the Island has changed quite a bit and LBI has grown by leaps and bounds. More people are living here year round than ever before, and the demand for high quality plumbing service is greater than ever and Barnegat Light Plumbing is still providing that same high quality service at a reasonable price by standards set up by Pop 50 years ago.
Today, Barnegat Light Plumbing & Builders stands for excellence with a quality comes first approach and as the only full service construction company on LBI with capabilities ranging from a small faucet repair to a brand new custom built beach home you can be assured that your project, no matter how large or small, will be given the highest standard of attention, quality, and detail available today.
