Wimpy’s Plumbing & Air,  was named by Winfred Butler, nicknamed Wimpy as a kid.  He was my dad.  He started the plumbing company back in 1973.  He wanted a name people could remember and associate that name with honesty, integrity and excellent w0rkmanship.

What is Wimpy’s today, forty years later?  A well respected and trusted plumbing company in the communities of Sarasota, Bradenton and Lakewood Ranch with the same values we had when we started forty years ago.  We are your Sarasota plumber.
