Paul R. Balkan is the President of Joseph L. Balkan. Paul is accredited as a Licensed Master Plumber 1281 by the NYC Department of Buildings. In addition Paul has a background in engineering, which certainly comes in handy. Couple that with over 40 years of hands-on experience in the NYC sewer and water industry. Those qualifications make Mr. Balkan uniquely qualified to oversee the largest sewer and water company in the City of New York. Paul’s word is his bond, and his integrity and honesty are beyond reproach. That is the foundation that Team Balkan is built upon.
A Dedication To His Chosen Trade
Paul started working with his father Joe part-time as a young teen, and then throughout college. That background enabled Paul to literally learn the business from the “underground” up. He has a vast knowledge of sewer repairs and main water line work. His experience also encompasses other aspects of being a NYC plumber. This dedication to the trade and knowledge has enabled Paul to grow this one-time small family sewer and water main business, into a firm that typically sends out over a dozen crews each day. Paul has a caring and respectful attitude towards clients and his staff alike. His dedication to detail includes providing precise and correct information. These traits have added immeasurably to Team Balkan’s reputation.
Along his road of experience Paul became a NYC Licensed Master Plumber in the early 1990’s. Being licensed, and of unquestioned integrity, makes Paul highly respected in his trade as a NYC plumber. Paul has been instrumental in rectifying many difficult and complicated situations over the years. This is thanks to Paul Balkan’s calm, knowledge, and being on-point. Those traits hold true no matter how stressful the situation. He is consistently thoughtful and intelligent thinking, particularly when situations call for it the most.
Message From The President of Joseph L. Balkan
My brother David and myself provide highly personal attention to all aspects of Balkan Sewer & Water Main Service. From choosing the highest quality materials for sewer and water main installations, to a strict adherence to code requirements. We routinely use materials that meet or exceed NYC Department of Environmental protection (NYC DEP), and Department of Buildings (DOB), code requirements. We take pride in personally training and overseeing both our office staff, and our the field personnel as well. This makes Balkan a great place to learn and grow as a professional.
My brother David and myself treat our clients as we would like to be treated when we are customers ourselves. That entails being respectful, and dealing with honesty, courtesy, and integrity. All while performing work at the fairest of prices. As a NYC Licensed Master Plumber my personal attention to the client relationship ensures a consistent level of quality and professionalism. Our uniform pricing policy assures you of the fairest of prices, no matter the urgency of the situation.
Our clear message is that we provide a consistency of NYC water main and sewer services. That is one of the many reasons our company has become the largest sewer and water service company in NYC. A position it has held for decades. We are also the oldest sewer company still operating under their original family name. Balkan performs between fifteen hundred to over two-thousand sewer line and water service installations each year city-wide.
