Energency Service ~ Pet Rescue!!

Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

I was extremely impressed with the service provided by Harris Plumbing. The gentleman who came to my house was professional, courteous and very helpful. Their office had been without power for most of the day on the Saturday, but they were still able to assist us and other customers. My situation was not a normal plumbing problem. We had lost a pet ferret in the sump pump weeping pipe. He had been missing for quite some time, but we could only guess that he had gone into the pipe. The drain camera scope that was carried out allowed us to know for sure that our pet was where we thought he was and best of all that he was still alive. Without that, we would never have known for sure and possibly the outcome may not have been positive. I am happy to say it turned out well and I thank Harris Plumbing for the huge part they played in that outcome. Harris Plumbing went the extra mile and then some to help us out in a very unusual and stressful situation. They care about their customers and it shows. I would recommend them to anyone who needs plumbing services.

Thanks again.

Hi Adele, you are so very welcome! We were all on pins and needles here in the office while we stayed tuned. We sent the pic of plumber/ferret whisperer Jef and sweet little Joey to the B101 radio station (that helped lure Joey out of the 4" pipe) and they put it on their home page and Facebook page! Joey's famous! Our fabulous plumber Jef is always famous!!! (To us and to all his HP clients). We're thrilled that we could help Adele.

Plumbing

Needed some faucets changed and called Harris Plumbing. Someone was available the same day. Very professional from start to finish. Harris Plumbing updated me when someone was to arrive and a follow-up to check on quality of service. Service was top notch. The plumber cleaned up after himself and was very polite. I would use them again.

Hi Jennifer, thanks so much for placing this review! We really appreciate that. We always do our very best to not only schedule appointments to suit our customers but to achieve the very important second part which is then arriving on time. We try to bring the highest quality service as well so that's not always easy. Sometimes doing the job right takes longer than we schedule for, so arrival flexibility when possible is always appreciated. Thanks again Jennifer!

sewer pipe backup

Feb 2013, had a sewer backup, guys came, snaked, videoed, cleared it and said our pipes under the basement floor had a low point and the floor needed to be busted up to fix. Said they'd be back to quote that job. Never heard from them again. Called to follow up and said they'd get back to me but no response. Just called and they said changed owners in April (son bought father out) so there was a change in policies and procedures -- I guess they decided not to follow up on what they said they would do. There were my go to plumber but will find someone who cares.

Water leaking from dishwasher installed two months previously

Matt from Harris Plumbing called back promptly and arrived on time on Saturday evening. He was courteous, tidy and thorough. He showed and explained the problem and how he planned to fix it. He understood my concerns about water damage to the hardwood flooring. I was very pleased with the service and would recommend him to anyone.

Enviro Composting Toilet installation at cottage

We were recommended to Harris Plumbing North (HPN) by the folks at the TimberMart who recommended them to us as someone who filled our requirement  of 'skilled and trustworthy'. We were not disappointed.

I need to tell you how impressed I am with their man Adam who did an amazing job for me yesterday. Adam was professional and focused all day. He is a tribute to your business. They also coordinated an electrician for me for this same visit who was equally impressive.

Thanks Harris Plumbing North for the help and I will recommend both your business and the electrical co. to any and all needing such trade services. Greg Walsh

Faulty sewage pump

We were having problems with our sewage pump in the basement and it was overflowing every 12-14 months. The guys that came from Harris plumbing noticed right away that some pipes were not properly installed, but they had to temporarily solve the problem. they did not fix it only because I am in a new home and felt this was something the builder needed to look after and correct. Thanks to harris plumbig I was able to tell the builder what the problem seemed to be, it took three years but they finally agreed to correct the issue. Now, fingers crossed, the sewage will stay where it belongs.

Master Bathroom Renovation

Rick Harris did most of the work himself and did an excellent job. He actually started earlier than promised and finished on time. His work was excellent and he left the bathroom very clean and tidy.

Thank you for the kind words Alan. This was a project where you had selected and purchased all materials with my guidance and advice along the way. I was happy to refer you to local contractors that I use that worked with you directly to finish extras on the renovation that weren't part of my project.

Powder room update

With Rick's eye to detail and his recommendations for fittings for this little room ,we were able to achieve a simple modern look that would happily go for another 20 years. Rick was always available for feedback (very important), was punctual, tidy, and his plumbing background is a strong asset. Rick referred us to the companies ( for tiles and fittings) and so we had first hand knowledge of what we were getting ,deciding to upgrade from original plans.
The powder room looks more spacious (Rick gently discouraged us from getting a vanity style sink) and we are happy with the outcome.
Joe (the painter) did an excellent job -very professional.Thanks Joe.
Thank you Rick for your excellent work and we look forward to working again with you.

Hi Claire,
It was a pleasure to work in your home and guide you through the process. Your input was key to getting the look you wanted. I was so pleased with the final result I didn't want to leave the powder room, the light fixture you selected was the perfect finishing touch.
Thank you, Rick Harris
