The Plumb Magic Story
Founded in 2009 as Plumb Magic® LLC, we have achieved the dreams of the Taggert Family.
The first Wizard, John Taggert was a farmer and engineer for the railroad. Having emigrated to the United States from Scotland at the turn of the 20th century and serving in World War I, Grandpa John and Grandma Gladys survived the Great Depression with a immeasurable work ethic and the ability to do great work. This was all handed down to their adopted nephew, Jimmy.
James David Taggert served in World War II and learned the plumbing trade after his discharge. He found himself in the city of Norfolk, Virginia, where he and one of his buddies from the plumbing hall meet and fall in love with two sisters, his buddy becoming his brother-in-law. Though newly in love, both found the time became master plumbers.
James D Taggert (Jimmy) was one of the most respected master plumbers in the Hampton Roads area. After nearly 40 years in the field he went to work for the city of Norfolk as a plumbing inspector. Jimmy taught many of the current master plumbers in the Hampton Roads region, including his sons. Two of his sons would achieve the title of master plumber after years of hard work and study.
Jimmy’s son, Michael G. Taggert, went on to become the Founder of Plumb Magic® LLC.
Although he held a natural proclivity for the family trade of plumbing, Michael wanted to make his own mark in the World. He tried on many different hats during the course of his life including a six-year term in the Air Force and several years at college. However, Michael has always returned to his roots in the trades with the voice of his father, Jimmy guiding him after so many years working hand in hand. The trades may not be glamorous but it is honest work and makes for a life to be proud of.
Michael’s experience in the plumbing trade has placed him in the Captain’s Chair, navigating several companies to success. Some of these companies include: Certified Basements (an Owens Corning Basement finishing system Franchise), Owens Corning HomeExperts DC and The Riverside Center.
Michael now brings his skills, his leadership, his understanding of customer service, his craftmanship and his father’s, (Jimmy), wisdom to you and the team of Wizards at Plumb Magic, LLC.
What Is A Wizard Of Pipe?
No, they are not something left over from the 70’s.
The wizards of pipe are a group of master plumbers dedicated to the perfection of our trade. We go beyond the legal definition of a master plumber and bring true old world craftsmanship back to the building industry.
For over 70 years the Taggert family has been synonymous with plumbing and quality. Our roots are deeply embedded in our Scottish/ Irish old world heritage and the skills we were taught by our grandfathers and fathers. The Taggert’s are now bringing to you the skill, tradesmanship and customer service our family is noted for.
True wizards search for the best way to serve your needs–we don’t just install your faucets we do the best installation possible. We don’t just fix your leak–we fix the cause of the leak so it doesn’t happen again. All of our technicians are highly skilled when they start with us and we install the Taggert family way in them.
We treat our clients as one of the family. Simply put, we are your neighbors, we see you in the grocery store, and our children go to school with your children; we have to do a good job.
