Dave’s Plumbing and Heating is a mechanical contracting business specializing in plumbing, heating, and cooling installation and service located on U. S. 250 in Barbour County at the intersection of Ten Mile Road. The firm, says Chevalier, provides professional heating and cooling sales and service at a price that “leaves our customers no reason to seek our competition.” Chevalier is a state licensed and registered contractor.
Taylor Michael Smith says that her insurance agency “was built by educators for educators, and tailors its products to the needs of people in the education system. We pride ourselves in being partners in the schools,” she says. “We work with auto, fire, life, and retirement services and, as partners, we help with student loan forgiveness, Donors Choose, and other school-specific programs.
“We aren’t a large, marketed company to the general public” she says, “because all of our marketing dollars go back into the schools. We believe that the people shaping our future deserve the best, and we strive every day to make that happen.”
