About Action Plumbing

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 homeowners. 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.”

We moved to the OBX almost 2 years ago and we only use Action Plumbing. 2 times we have called them with emergencies and they always do their best to help us out. Also, the quality of work they do can not be beat! Every technician we've gotten has been extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I have to shoutout Luke, who has helped us many times. Highly recommend this company!

Had extensive issue with our Navien tankless water heater. Action came out the same day I called, and diagnosed the issues. Replacement parts were ordered and installed over a couple days. Teesa in the office, and techs Luke, Mike, Steve, Alex, James and Cal were all very helpful, courteous and professional. I recommend Action Plumbing!

Excellent warranty service on my hot water tank in Corolla a few weeks back. Came out on a Saturday for initial diag. and didn't charge me. Have used them several times. Tech Mike and owner John are good people to deal with. Highly recommended.

I can't say enough good things about this company! Fast, on-time, did an amazing job installing faucet and getting a corroded hose off our outdoor bib. They even called me to tell me that their technicians had some extra time and if we wanted them to come earlier in the week! It's hard to find contractor companies that are doing it right, and this company seems to be very well-run, has their operations running smoothly, with great technicians. They deserve a big shout-out, and we will be a customer for life!

Action did an excellent job installing shower accessories, installing a toilet and connecting the plumbing to a new double vanity when our master bath was remodeled. That led us to hiring them again when we remodeled a guest bath. They were excellent again.
