It wasn’t that long ago when Clayton Robinson was just getting his plumbing company started. Unlike many startups that often struggle at first to get customers, Clayton was busy from sun up to sun down with five to eight calls a day for everything from leaky faucets to busted pipes and sewer line issues. Clearly, business was good. But it was also just him doing all of that work — a far cry from the thriving local business he has today.
“I look back and think, ‘How did I ever get through it?’” Clayton said with a laugh. “It was just me and a truck with a trailer. But it was all here before I knew it. My team and my amazing wife are a big part of that.”
Fast forward to today, and CR Plumbing has quickly become one of the more trusted plumbing companies in Argyle, Flower Mound, and surrounding communities. And that’s saying something, given the wealth of options that homeowners and local businesses have for their plumbing needs. But as Clayton likes to say, why would anyone choose another company? Family-owned and operated since 2020, CR Plumbing now has 14 employees and six service trucks.
They hire only the best of the best with licensed, qualified, and highly-trained plumbers, and customers can rest assured that no matter the issue they’re experiencing, CR Plumbing will fix it quickly, cleanly, and correctly every time. You can count on their team to have you and your plumbing system covered throughout the year, from drain cleaning and fixture replacement to water heater repair, leak detection services, gas line service, and pipelining.
Ask any customer, and they’ll gush over how they can have any plumbing issue resolved by the same friendly faces — all while giving their family the peace of mind that comes from a plumbing system that works.
“I’d say 84% of our business is repeat customers, and that means a lot to us because it proves that we are taking care of people and that they trust us,” Clayton said. “Everyone here cares about the customer. They want to be honest, upfront, and they want to take care of everyone. That’s the environment we’ve built.”
“Not many people pay attention to their plumbing until it stops working. We enjoy taking that problem and fixing it.”
When Argyle Living Magazine recently caught up with Clayton and his team, it was clear that this isn’t your run-of-the-mill plumbing company. There is a hometown, peaceful feel that comes with talking to them — as if you’re listening to the calming voice of a trusted friend or neighbor. Clayton said he purposely hired younger, skilled, and knowledgable technicians and has reaped the benefits with consistent results from a team that plans to be in the industry for years to come. For the customer, that means zero turnover and long-term relationships.
At the heart of it all is Clayton. A 13-year plumbing veteran, Clayton worked for three separate companies before deciding to go out on his own. With help from his wife, Hannah, who helps run the day-to-day operations, he’s built an atmosphere where plumbers can make a good living, enjoy what they’re doing, and still have a good work-life balance.
CR Plumbing wants to give you the plumbing service you deserve. They serve a wide area, covering cities throughout Denton County and beyond. They will provide you with a free consultation to explain all of your available options so that you can choose the scope of work that’s right for your home or business.
“All of our employees know what they’re doing, and we focus on providing as much training as possible to ensure we can take care of any need a customer has,” Clayton said. “I’m so incredibly thankful for this team and my wife. When you combine all of that, it’s a big reason why we’ve been able to thrive the way we have over the years.”
