Our Outer Banks plumbing company, Action Plumbing, was started in the winter of 1999. Through long hours of hard work, our plumbing company has grown out of a garage to 7 vans and a stocked shop. We service the Outer Banks area from Corolla to South Nags Head. Our client base includes several popular management companies, as well as local and distant home owners. We take care of multiple commercial clients as well. Contractors and builders use our services over and over as we have established ourselves as a detail oriented, caring construction and remodel plumbing contractor. Our relationships are built on one customer, one service call, one project at a time. Through dedication to quality, value, and trust, we have served our customers. Founder and owner John Osborn: “We enjoy helping people solve their plumbing problems, it’s never a good time to have one. Solving problems is what we do. There is great satisfaction in helping a customer.”
