Kitchen Sink

We were very pleased with the work Nick did for us. He detached the old sink, added shut off valves to the pipes and reinstalled our new under mount sink. He did everything in a timely manner and explained all that was done. We also appreciate him fitting us in as our previous plumber had to cancel for health reasons.

Laundry room leak and sink replacement.

We had a broken pipe in the laundry room and we called Van Horne to come and repair it. The young man was very personable and very efficient and did a vey good job. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others. I am quite sure they too would be satisfied with the results and their service.

Kitchen Drain

We had developed a slow draining kitchen sink after 18 yrs. After filtering through all the plumbing companies on Homestars, I had settled upon 2 companies. Both were highly ranked, and not surprisingly both were very busy. After several days of phone tag with each, I finally decided upon Nick at Van Horne plumbing. Even though the alternative choice was both ranked slightly higher and quoted significantly cheaper, I went with my gut reaction based on the brief conversations I had with Nick while trying to find an available appointment.
I cannot stress enough how satisfied and happy I was with Nick's service. It is almost impossible these days to find anyone in any field at any price that is willing to tackle a repair, diagnose the root cause, and then correct the real problem. No short cuts. Not only did Nick resolve the clog, he will encourage you watch his work while he explains his actions and offer pro-active advice for preventive maintenance. He noticed also an unrelated minor issue with the dishwasher hose and quickly corrected that also. Most importantly he noticed the original home builder's plumbing in the basement regarding the kitchen sink down piping had a major flaw that would always be a contributing factor to the kitchen sink clogging, so he was good enough to fix that also during the same appointment. In the end, I know I got the better end of this deal with the price I paid. Thank you Nick. Van Horne has earned all my future plumbing business and word of mouth to family and friends.

Laundry Plumbing

Nick was easy to correspond with, polite and knowledgable.
Re-plumbed under sink laundry fittings to function correctly and brought them up to grade for new farmhouse sink to be fitted.
Nick fitted everything in a timely manner and would highly recommend him to others.

Kitchen Faucet Replacement

Nick replaced the kitchen faucet and secured the faucet with a proper plate underneath the sink since the wood under was rotted.

He checked all the valves under the sink for leakage. Found a small crack in the drain nut and addressed it.

Nick was very nice to work with, polite, knowledgeable, explained what he was doing, and on time.

Definitely will be calling him again for future work.

Main water valve replacement

Nick was very professional, patient, courteous and conscientious. He advised on how to deal efficiently with the city for shut off and on. I have already recommended him to other trades in case they want to pass along the name. Don’t hesitate to call him for a quote and trust that you will get a trustworthy professional experience.

Main water valve

Had to change the main water valve in the house. Excellent service! Nick is very professional. Would definitely use him again. Highly recommended. He even waited for the city to turn water on so he could check for any leak.

Replace kitchen sink faucet

Nick was excellent. Bought two faucets to replace but Nick told me only really needed one replaced (the other could be quickly repaired, which he did). Installation was fast and efficient. Will definitely be using Nick and Van Horne next time I need plumbing work. Would give him even more stars if I could!
