Founder, visionary, and company president, Randy Gardner, brings nearly 40 years of experience to the company leadership. Originally from Canada, he moved to Southern California in 1984. Within a few years, his first plumbing company began servicing commercial and industrial companies such as Birtcher, Koll and Segerstrom. Shortly thereafter, Edwards Theaters (now owned by Regal), would award the company its service contract for over 80 theaters in Southern California.
By 1999, the company further expanded with Santa Margarita Plumbing, Heating & Air, which serviced not only commercial industries, but residential and insurance projects as well. Over the next few years, employees and trucks were added to service nearly every community in South Orange County. In addition, a commercial service division, Capital Commercial Plumbing & Jetting was developed to better handle the specific needs of our commercial and industrial customers.
In 2006, all the plumbing, heating and air divisions were incorporated into Your Neighborhood Plumber, Inc. This has allowed us to expand into additional cities and extend our focus into different technologies. One of these new endeavors included “Trenchless Technology,” the relining of sewers and water mains without deconstruction of existing structures, which lead to the creation of PipeGuard.
The creation of PipeGuard led to new and exciting opportunities in the way of Cured in Place Pipelining. Along with having tailor-made liners, our system is cured by using UV-light. This process is temperature-independent and causes less carbon-dioxide emissions than other curing methods which helps keep costs inexpensive along with protecting our environment.
PipeGuard is committed to continually improving service to our customers by listening to your needs, keeping up with the latest advances in technology, and providing quality workmanship in all areas.
PipeGuard was started by Randy Gardner. Randy has been plumbing for the better part of 40 years and knows all there is to know about the industry. He has worked extensively throughout California since moving here 30 years ago from Eastern Canada and was excited to make the transition to trenchless lining when the technology and opportunity presented itself.
Randy currently resides in Orange County, California with his wife of 30 years and their three children.
