  • On time, very pleasant, got the job done in a timely manner
    I am very pleased with the service. Because of the weather issues, I had to call the office several times. The phone was always answered promptly, no voice mail saying someone would call me back. Next day service was offered. Again, because of the weather, we had to wait several days for the actual work. The serviceman was on time, very pleasant, got the job done in a timely manner and didn’t leave a mess behind him. I am very pleased.

  • Professional and efficient

    Ryan & Jamie were terrific; though it ran a great deal more than anticipated the work he recommended made sense in the long-term. I was impressed with their friendly professionalism and the efficiency with which they handled getting additional parts needed. Glad to have found you on Angie’s List!!

  • Took time to educate us about all the work along the way
    Ryan and Jamie were a terrific team, punctual, polite, and very hardworking crew. Had all the work done right and on time, and took time to educate us about all the work along the way. We would definitely recommend them highly.

  • Proficient and professional
    I was very impressed with the quick response from your company to repair my problem. Ryan and Neal were courteous, explained everything that they were doing, and proficient and professional. In retrospect, I was very happy, if not lucky to have had those two to do the job.

  • Scheduled me for service within a few hours the same day
    Issues during my remodel that we didn't plan for. Office gal promptly scheduled me for service within a few hours the same day. Ryan, the plumber showed up at the beginning of that time window. In and out, cleaned up and clients are happy the project isn't going to be delayed.

  • When customer service is not always a priority for many companies, you are the exception

    I recently had my home repiped by your company and I wanted to let you know how impressed I was by how your company handled the whole process. I was referred to you by my next door neighbor who had recently been having a kitchen remodel done by Cooper Design and had been using your company (Robert) and was happy with the results. As you know, repiping is no small investment, but certainly one that needed to be done, so it was important to make sure that I would receive a quality service. In particular, the lead plumber, Robert, was amazing. From the very first visit to assess the job and cost, to the follow-up bid, and the subsequent actual repiping, Robert was always eager to explain the details, answer all my questions, and keep on track with all elements of the job, including the backfill. When the PDX inspector came and requested a few changes, Robert came back promptly and completed all elements. He helped get the re-inspection lined up, coordinated getting an electrician to come out and ground my wires, and made sure your office found a sheet rocker to complete the job. The gal on the phone was also helpful in setting up a sheet rock service as apparently, your previous connections had not updated their Oregon licensure. The sheet rock person who came out was also excellent in both attitude and completion of the job. I have already told several people I know who will need to repipe their older home in the near future, about your company. I will certainly call you in the future when I need plumbing services. In an era when it seems that customer service is not always a priority for many companies, I just wanted to let you know that you are the exception.

  • I have never been more satisfied with a company than I have with Sarkinen
    I have used Sarkinen on numerous occasions including after hour emergency situations. My review is long overdue. I have never been more satisfied with a company than I have with Sarkinen. From the office personnel to the field technicians that have come to my house they are impeccable. I will never use another plumbing contractor. Thank you Sarkinen!

    - Michael K.

  • Excellent personnel in the field and the office

    We had water with sludge coming up through the floor drain in our basement laundry room (what a mess) and of course, it was a Friday. After calling several plumbing companies, all were booked up for a least a week. We found Sarkinen Plumbing was available, and 45 minutes later out came Robert, professional and polite. He found our problem and suggested a couple of options to try and remedy the situation. The next day, right on schedule, came Manny, professional and polite. He ran a high power pressure water hose that was not able to clear the pipe in question and recommended replacing a section of the old pipe. Well, the next day Manny was enthusiastically back with a concrete saw and went to work. It was fast and affordable. Sarkinen has hired excellent personnel in the field and office. We highly recommend Sarkinen Plumbing Company. Thank you!

  • Came early and did the work quickly

    Ryan came early (he checked to make sure I was home) and did the work quickly. I appreciate the peace of mind that comes from having the leak fixed. Thank you.

    - Erin G.

  • Cleaned up everything like they were never there
    Great friendly service, cleaned up everything like they were never there. Emailed invoice for future service if needed. Showed up early with a call 20 minutes prior to service.

    - Kris D.

  • Impressive on how they went about there work
    Both young men were impressive on how they went about there work. A pleasure to watch. Also, nice clean up after work was done.

  • Did a fantastic job of getting our pipes cleared
    We have an older home with old pipes that were not draining. When I called Sarkinen Plumbing I was immediately offered the special they were offering. Tony came to our door with a smile, a great attitude and explained everything as he did it. He was helpful and did a fantastic job of getting our pipes cleared. His friendly attitude made the whole experience great. Thank you!

    - Jeanne R.

  • Thank you so much for showing up when desperately needed
    Such a lifesaver. This plumbing company technicians showed up very quickly from the time we called. I messed up in working on a leaking outside faucet which also involved getting in the crawlspace. The job was completed within the hour and that meant the water source is back on. Thank you so much for showing up when desperately needed. For sure you are now added to our contact list.

    - Randy M.

  • Replaced all the pipes over a 2-day process with minimal inconvenience
    My galvanized pipes were full of sediment and causing problems. Ryan and his helper replaced all the pipes over a 2-day process with minimal inconvenience. All this at a fair price. Thanks!

  • They were able to fix the problem quickly and efficiently

  • On top of what was going on with my insurance claim
    Robert Paquet was outstanding in being familiar with the case, his follow-up and his total attitude. He was on top of what was going on with my insurance claim with State Farm. I certainly would highly recommend him. Thank you, Robert.
