Matt Wells is the President of Western Mechanical Contractors and is a 3rd generation plumber. His 26 years in the industry were spent in a plumbing apprenticeship for 5 years, receiving plumbing instructor training for 5 more years, and another 8 years in a plumbing apprenticeship and as a journeyman training instructor, all while teaching at night. Matt enjoys passing on the knowledge he has gained in field plumbing, estimating projects and building a plumbing company. His experiences with plumbing replacement projects include tenant impact, duration of projects, budgeting for piping replacement, providing ways to reduce owner costs for plumbing systems replacement and information on how owners can self-perform routine maintenance to avoid hiring a plumbing contractor in the first place. While it may seem his life revolves around plumbing, he does enjoy fishing with lifelong friends and his grandchildren.
