A Word From Richard Epstein

"I was born into the family business. I have fond memories of working in plumbing as far back as 12 or 13 years old, so working in the plumbing business has been my life’s work. For me, working with people is extremely rewarding and the times when I work with homeowners is exciting. I look forward to working with The Spruce on the Home Improvement Review Board."


Richard received his license in plumbing in 1988 from the city of New York.
