After 18 years working as a plumber, Shad Wood started his own business in 2016.

Now he’s expanding.

His son, Caleb, has joined him and S&C Plumbing is now a full-service business.

“My father handles all the new construction and I will be handling all the service plumbing,” said Caleb.

They expanded on Jan. 28 when Caleb and his wife, Ashley, returned from their honeymoon in New York City.

“It was fun and it was cold,” he said.

Caleb, 23, returns to Payson after spending the past seven years working as a plumber in the Valley. He grew up here, just like his father. Shad’s wife, Melissa, grew up in Chicago, but has spent the last 20 years in Payson.

Another of Shad’s sons, Carden, 17, works part-time on the new construction side of the business with his father.

Caleb’s older brother, Keifer Hansen, plans to join the business on the service side this spring.

S&C Plumbing wants to stand out from the competition.

“We’d like to bring a different kind of service plumbing company to Payson,” Caleb said. “We want to focus more on customer service, offering options and offering the best quality that we can.”

One way they’ll differ from others in the industry is by letting customers know what a service call will cost them before the start working.

“We’re going to give up front pricing and guarantee our pricing,” Caleb said. “So if the job does take a little longer than we anticipate the price isn’t going to change. It’s more fair all the way around by giving that up front pricing.”

They’re offering a special price of $49 from Feb. 1 through the end of April for a one-year maintenance plan that includes a whole home plumbing inspection and water heater flush, as well as a discount on service calls. The normal price is $99.

“That’s one more thing that will set us apart,” Caleb said.

For more information or to schedule service, call 928-951-1300 or visit their Facebook page, where you can send them a message.

“We look forward to serving the community,” Caleb said.
