About Juan Mercado

Hi, I’m Juan Mercado the owner of JM Plumbing Services, your neighborhood plumber.

I moved from Wisconsin to Virginia in the winter of 1999. It turned out to be an extremely COLD and snow-filled winter. Needless to say, my friends blamed me for bringing the cold with me from Wisconsin! 🙂

My professional plumbing career began when I went to work for a commercial plumbing contractor. In order to become a fully licensed plumber, I attended a four year, state-approved apprenticeship program. I was honored to be awarded “Outstanding Apprentice of the Year” in 2004.

“I congratulate the apprentices and their employers on their outstanding efforts and for recognizing the merits of registered apprenticeship. Apprenticeship is a proven, efficient workforce development program that helps ensure a highly skilled, quality, healthy and safe workforce.” ~Commissioner of Labor and Industry, C. Ray Davenport

Over the years, many customers of mine urged me to branch out and start my own business. They gave me feedback like, “we want someone in our neighborhood, someone who is connected to the community who we can call on to help.” People were tired of being treated like a number in a franchise’s box. They wanted a more personal connection. After 18 and a half years with my employer, and with the support of my family and friends, I took a leap of faith and made the decision to start my own business.

This journey has been just incredible! I am truly grateful to all of my loyal customers and am humbled by the rave reviews I receive.

I enjoy meeting so many different people and take pride in the help I can provide them. Not only have I become a plumber to some of these customers, but I have become a trusted friend.

I take pride in my work and look forward to being YOUR neighborhood plumber.

I have called Juan on many occasions over the past 10+ years to work on everything from repairing a leaking faucet, or installing a new shower to adjusting/tuning a new boiler in my home.  Juan is always punctual, assesses the problem quickly, addresses the problem without going into unnecessary options and his work is high quality.  Juan even tells me when there’s something simple I can fix myself or will refer me to someone else who is reliable when he can’t perform the work.  He is always the first person I call.” -Steve G.
