Kitchen update and general plumbing repair

Nick was very responsive and helpful throughout our kitchen upgrade project. He was great at communicating and flexible for scheduling changes. We will certainly be using Van Horne for all of our future plumbing needs, and could not recommend him enough. Thanks again Nick!

Responsive, Efficient and Cooperative

We called Nick, who was very insightful , and asked us the right questions about our situation. He was patient and heard us out, and came as promised to examine and diagnose the damage to our drywall next to the tub & shower as a seepage issue and identified the likely cause as water leaking from the corner of the bathtub and the shower doors into the adjacent wall. He also inspected our faucets and shower connections in both bathrooms and fixed two minor issues that, if not repaired, would have caused major damage in the future. What I appreciated the most about Nick was his knowledge and his step-wise approach that eliminated the need to open up the drywall and the ceiling of our laundry room below that showed signs of a slow leak, for identifying the cause. He also referred us to a reputable contractor who could do the repair work without us having to needlessly spend additional money on plumbing repair. He was quick and very efficient. We know we have found a reliable plumber whose services we will be sure to use in the future

Basement Reno - plumbing installation

Nick did a great job on doing the rough-in for our basement Reno. He was great to work with and flexible in terms of times. He also did a great job replacing the copper plumbing with Pex piping. Would recommend to anyone!

Kitchen Sink - Slow Drain

We had a clogged drain in our kitchen sink and had tried numerous times to use Drano but this was unsuccessful. We called Nick at Van Horne Plumbing and he "snaked" the drain and removed all the debris. He was very professional and efficient and wore PPE during the service call. We will definitely use him again for any plumbing issues.

Bathroom Renovation

We were renovating our washrooms and needed a plumber to convert a double sink into a single sink, and install a bath tub. We looked on Home Stars and Nick responded quickly with a very reasonable quote. When Nick arrived he took the appropriate COVID safety measures and completed the job within the agreed upon timeline. He also took the time to explain the work the he had completed. I was very impressed with his job. We would definitely use him again.

Washer hook-up

Nick provided the plumbing for a washer hook-up in my basement. He provided me with advice on how it should be connected to the down drain from the kitchen as other plumbers that gave me an estimate did not. Nick was very professional, the plumbing was excellent, and I highly recommend him! Thanks Nick!

Pipe leak

Left hose attached throughout winter and caused a crack in the pipe. The job was done quickly. Friendly service and the plumber cleaned up after himself.

Installed shut off valve for fridge

We had a problem with fridge where water was flowing into the ice maker, could not locate the shut off valve due to recent basement renovations.
Nick arrived when promised, texted before arriving and installed a new shut off valve behind fridge.
Then looked at our upstairs shower and provided some advice at what was needed.
Very professional, excellent service, Reasonable rates. Definitely will be calling Nick again.
Thanks for the great service.
