Teeny Tiny Powder Room Reno

Michael was charming, helpful and above all professional. He arrived on time and always got the job done. He helped us with our new powder room, which was a challenge partly because it's so small, but also because we were installing an in-wall toilet tank and wall-hung toilet. He always kept me informed of what he was doing and made sure the job was done right. We couldn't be happier with our new powder room. Thanks Michael!

Install a standpipe for a washing machine

Over the past year at another location I have hired many contractors and been disappointed almost every time.
Yesterday at our new location I met Mike, who without hesitation jumped right into the job assessing the requirements and telling me the cost which I found very reasonable. The job was done quickly and professionally and something that impressed me as a retired appliance repairman was the amount of testing done before declaring the job done. After finishing Mike cleaned the area thoroughly and was courteous throughout. "Good help is hard to find" and the Mike the Irish Plumber is one of the few! Thank you Mike!

Plumbing in very old house

Michael and his team are the only plumbers I would trust to fix the terrible plumbing in our old house. The existing plumbing was so badly done and I honestly feared that it could never be made right. The Irish Plumber was extremely thorough, professional and tidy. I felt safe in his competent hands. The price upon completion matched the estimated costs, so there were no surprises. Melissa at the office is wonderful also, she really is so approachable and really tried to work out a solution for us as soon as was possible, which was much appreciated. I would highly recommend the Irish plumber to anyone looking for their job to be completed quickly and properly, thank you so much! - Ashley

Stellar and professional service

I had a leak in my bathroom affecting my kitchen ceiling.i went only and read the stellar reputation of the Irish Plumber and took and chance and guess what? I made the right decision. They are fast at responding with friendly Melissa setting the appointment on the phone and already knowing you will be taken care off. The Michael showed up and to his time investigating and ensuring all portions were explored and then fixed it all that same day. Friendly, informative, very professional, clean (does not leave a mess behind) and for the service reasonably priced. Oh and more importantly they are not trying to sell you things you don’t need...love this company! My new and tusted company for all times. Strongly recommend them!

New plumbing in an old home

We live in a duplex. The plumbing stack is shared between the 2 homes. Michael and his team, over a 2 day period, replaced the plumbing stack as well as replaced the old cast iron piping. Respectful our space and cleaned up as they went along. Both families on either side of the duplex have been pleased with the results.

Toilet wax ring replacement

I called on Saturday morning saying I needed wax ring on toilet replaced.
Was told that it would be much cheaper if I could wait until after weekend,I agreed and was told they would call back when they checked availability.
No call from them but guy appeared Monday morning.
I was suffering from flu and just wanted job done.
Found the cost exorbitant and would never use them again.

sewage drain backed up to my kitchen sink - paid for an incomplete job

Mike and David from The Irish Plumber in Kanata came to my house to fix a sewer drain clog. Dave spent 3 hours then Mike joined him for another hour and a half but couldn't fix the problem. I was charged $1385 for an incomplete job. Mike then gave me a second quote of $1600 to cut the basement and replace the pipe. I called for a second opinion from my friend who is a construction worker. He rented a machine that cost $85 and fixed the problem within an hour. Lesson learned: do your home work before calling a plumber!

Company Response

Hi Christine

Iam sorry if you think that you were misled but we clearly showed you with our drain camera that you had a sag in your building drain under the basement slab .

We cleared the blockage showed you that the pipe was clear except for a 25 ft section that had standing water in it even after we cleared the blockage.
When the camera goes into water then comes out and there is no clear blockage that means you have an issue with the pipe that is not sloped properly .

You wasted your friends time and another $85 , he did not fix anything because the drain was already cleared by us .

Your drain will block again in a couple of months and then maybe you will realise what we were talkin about .

Leaking water meter connection and corroded cast iron waste stack.

I called several local plumbers re problems listed in review title. Messages left but NO call backs. Found Irish Plumber on-line and decided to give them a try(based on excellent reviews).I phoned @ 1 PM and a human being (Michael) answered the phone. He said he could possibly come that afternoon and would get back to me after checking his schedule. He contacted me an hour later saying he was on his way and arrived at 3 PM. Job was completed by 5:30 PM. Work was well done. Site clean-up excellent. I would absolutely recommend this company to others!
