Rakeman Home Repair was started by Fred Rakeman in the 1950’s, serving the home repair needs of the Las Vegas valley. Mr. Rakeman built a good loyal customer base and to this day we still have our customers call us for service and stating how they use to know Fred Rakeman.
In the 1970’s Rakeman Home Repair was acquired by Bob Lange. Mr. Lange obtained a State of Nevada Contractors C-1 license and renamed the company Rakeman Plumbing. While still keeping the longtime customers along with creating new loyal customers, Mr. Lange expanded the company to also serve the commercial businesses in the valley.
In the early 1980’s Stephen Hawley, the owner of Classic Plumbing, a new construction plumbing company was looking for a well-respected 24 hour service plumbing company to compliment his already successful Classic Plumbing. Mr. Hawley purchased complete ownership of Rakeman Plumbing in the 1990’s to allow Mr. Lange to start a new plumbing company for his son to have.
Since then Mr. Hawley has passed away and his son Aaron Hawley now is the owner of Rakeman Plumbing. Aaron was born and raised in the Las Vegas valley and appreciates our loyal customer base and their repeat business. Aaron also plans to keep building and expanding Rakeman Plumbing to allow the new residents to the Las Vegas valley to experience the same service our longtime customers have come to expect.
