We have all heard the term “roof rat” but what are they really and how did they come to be? I have always thought these were an Arizona myth until I saw one scampering across my backyard one night.
Roof rats first appeared in Arizona back in 2002 and are still a major problem today. There are a few species of rats known, varying in size (13-18in from head to tail) and color (brown, gray, black). They prefer to nest in high places such as trees and attics, but will burrow under plants, buildings, basements and even sewers.
A ½” hole in a house is just enough for a roof rat to climb into, turning your home into a new breeding place. They are best known for getting into the structure of the house, eating through electrical wires, and causing other destructive damage within the house. They also have been known to ruin citrus crops. Although these can lead to extensive repair bills, the worst is when they die in your house and start to decay, leaving a “lovely” smell throughout your ventilation system.
This can all be prevented by calling Qualtire Plumbing & Construction to come out and secure all holes and make sure the rats won’t be getting into the house as well as going into the attic and checking for existing rats. Other actions can be beneficial as well such as keeping your yard well kept, picking up excess fruit, and disposing garbage properly. You want to make sure you do not use D-Con to kill the rats because that could potentially kill your pets or other animals as well.
Always remember that Qualtire Plumbing & Construction has been your Phoenix plumber and remodeler since 1964, and we are always just a phone call away.

Just wanted to let everyone that I have just posted our April specials – and this is no joke. Seriously, though, it’s hard to believe that it’s almost April. Having said that, we know the inevitable heat is about to arrive; which is why April is the month to service that air conditioner. So take advantage of our special to service that a/c for only $90. In addition, we are continuing to offer our free estimates to anyone that sustained hail damage from the storm last fall. Remember, we are not only plumbers, but also install new air conditioners and roofs, do painting, patio covers, etc. So give us a call at 602-246-0656 if we can be of service to you.
Everyone here at Qualtire Plumbing & Construction wishes you a very special April. We feel so fortunate to have such great customers, and we appreciate your business and your friendship. Thank you.
Hi all. It’s hard to believe March is upon us, and spring is just around the corner. For those of us here in Arizona, we also know that means the heat is just around the corner. But let’s not think about that just yet. Let’s think about how beautiful March is here in the desert and ponder on a few Irish sayings:
“For each petal on the shamrock, this brings a wish your way – Good health, good luck, and happiness, for today and every day.” – Author unknown.
“Never iron a four-leaf clover, because you don’t want to press your luck.” Author unknown.
I just posted our March specials. We are continuing our free estimates for any storm damage repairs: new roofs, patio covers, window screens, etc. We are also continuing 10% off your total electrical, plumbing or construction repair bill for the month of March.
Qualtire Plumbing & Construction has been your Phoenix plumbing and remodeling company since 1964, and we are always just a phone call away. Have a great month and a Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

We have been installing a number of new roofs, patio covers, etc. that were damaged from the October storm.

As we enter into the busy holiday season, we start our lists and begin checking things off. Aside from the gifts to purchase and cards to write, we begin to think of the guests that will be arriving and if our homes are ready to accommodate them and the holidays.
If you have guest bathrooms that haven’t been utilized much, now is the time to check to see if the bathroom fixtures are operating correctly. In addition, is everything working adequately in the kitchen? Now is the time to take care of those pesky kitchen and bathroom plumbing repairs before the festivities begin and the guests arrive.
We are offering December specials to help you with those repairs, so give us a call at 602-246-0656, and let us help you get ready for the holidays. Remember Qualtire Plumbing & Construction has been your Phoenix plumbing and remodeling company since 1964, and we are always just one phone call away.
