BEST ROOFING COMPANY Scott’s Roofing & Solar
BEST PLUMBER Around the Clog
No one wants to call the plumber. But when you have to, Best Plumber is the one to call. They only handle residential work, including plumbing repair, emergencies, water heater repair and replacement, sewer line inspections, and drain cleaning. We caught up with co-owner Tanya Briggs, who runs the small family business with her husband. What she loves about her job is the customers. And what the customers love about Best Plumber? The plumber himself. Briggs says it’s her husband Doug’s sense of humor that keeps customers coming back and spreading the word among friends and neighbors. “He brings some entertainment along with the plumbing,” says Tanya. She acknowledges that plumbing problems are no one’s idea of fun. But she says, “it’s better to be laughing than crying.” P.O. Box 976, Lafayette, 720.940.3661, aroundtheclog-co.com.

If you want to do good for your home and the planet, look no further than Scott’s Roofing and Solar. They’re members of 1% for the Planet, an organization that pairs businesses with approved environmentally focused non-profits, building strong partnerships that magnify the impact of members’ giving. Scott’s Roofing also uses sustainable shingles. Malarkey. According to Owner Gary Nickell, they feature smog eating granules. What does that mean for the planet? Every average sized roof made of Malarkey shingles is the equivalent of planting four trees. And since they’re made of upcycled materials, the average roof diverts 350 plastic jugs and six truck tires from the landfill. At the end of the day, Nickell feels it’s Scotts’ exemplary customer service that sets them apart. “We demand our people give excellent customer service,” he tells us. “If they don’t, they can’t work here.” 211 N Public Road, #100, Lafayette, 303.469.9287, scottsroofingcolorado.com.
