Washroom sink

These professionals do excellent work with an explanation and reasoning. Pricing is very fair, we have used this service several times. Call Van Horne, you will NOT be disappointed.

Residential Kitchen Sink Plumbing Repairs

We had a major leak under the kitchen sink which resulted in water seeping onto the ceiling below. We called Nick and he came over within 24 hours He quickly diagnosed the problem and completely redid the plumbing under the sink. Everything perfect! While he was at our home he replaced the outside water faucet. Excellent work in a timely fashion. It is good to see a company such as Van Horne Plumbing carry out small residential projects such as ours. Thanks so much Nick!

Replaced Main lock off valve and 2 Hose Bibs

Nick replaced the Main lock off valve which is located in the ceiling in a hard to reach spot in my tiny laundry area, he also replaced 2 Hose Bibs and showed me how to operate the valve .
Nick arrived on time, he advised me by text that he was on his way which I appreciated. He was very courteous, respectful and professional. His work was clean, tidy , professionally done and completed on time . His price was very reasonable and included material and labour and visit to my house
I was very happy with his work and highly recommends Van Horne plumbing .

Toilet repair

Nick was professional and on time and did a great job on fixing a problem with our toilet he didn't leave until he knew that the job was done right the first time and would recommend him to anyone.

Main water valve replacement

Nick very clearly explained everything he did. From watching and listening to him it was obvious he takes pride in delivering a top quality job free of shortcuts and low quality materials; one that won't require a second follow-up visit. The work was done perfectly with no mess. I was looking for a new plumber because I did not want to call the cranky, sullen and near speechless plumber I tried previously (found via Home Stars, sadly). Nick is customer-oriented, friendly, easy to talk to, and the plumber I will call next time.

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.
