Solutions Made Easy

For all your plumbing, heating, cooling, air quality, natural gas, and drainage needs.


Our mission is to provide you with quality solutions you can trust.  We aspire to provide our customers with a transparent and genuine service experience while demonstrating accountability and an informative approach in our work.


When we identified our core values, it was an easy task to know what we wanted to provide for our customers - the same thing we’d been providing for almost 30 years. What was harder, was distilling that down into one sentence. Quality plumbing and heating solutions you can trust.



Founded in 1972, R&B Plumbing and Heating is a second generation, family-run business. Current owner Rob Blaksic apprenticed under his father right here on the North Shore before taking over the company in 1990. With more than 45 years of experience in the plumbing and heating business in beautiful North Vancouver, we have insight into the unique quirks and demands of the trade in this geographic area that others simply can’t match.


With so many plumbing and heating companies in the lower mainland, you’re likely wondering what sets us apart. The truth is, it’s not just one thing. Here are some of the main reasons people keep choosing R&B:

  • The newest technology, tools and equipment for fast, reliable service. Built for tough jobs and enough for any challenge.
  • Well-stocked service vehicles and a local warehouse mean less time spent sourcing common materials, resulting in faster solutions.
  • One of the best guarantees in the business. We stand behind our workmanship 100 percent.
  • Local knowledge of the ins and outs of the trade in the area, accumulated through decades of operation.
  • Excellent working relationships with the municipality, inspectors, and other local governing agencies.
  • Genuine, friendly and talented people, from the office staff to technicians.

“Had a toilet leak in a condo on a weekend. They came on an emergency basis promptly and handled everything in a professional and friendly manner. Gave excellent advice and Sam offered to continue to give advice as I selected a new toilet. Great people, excellent service.”

Jim G.

“Hired R B Plumbing first time for a tough and unusual job on a boat . They sent Kyle who stayed the course and toughed it out with a great can do and will do attitude. Very happy and they will hear from me again.”


John M.

“Good service - a pump had failed that affected our hot water system. It was replaced promptly and efficiently at a reasonable cost.”


Bill P.

“R&B supplied our current furnace and, most recently, installed a new water heater at our home. We also use the company for annual maintenance. We have been very satisfied with the service we have received and have no hesitation in recommending R&B.”


Allison H.

“Great company, great people. I have had four positive experiences with R&B fixing plumbing issues in my shop. Their people are friendly and honest and they do a good job!”


Liz G

“I was extremely pleased and satisfied with the service I received. The technician was efficient, knowledgeable and very respectful of our home. After he left, aside from the fact that our furnace was working very efficiently, it was as if he hadn't been there at all. He had cleaned up and left the furnace area spotless. Thank you R&B, and I will certainly be recommending you to my family and friends.”


Barbara L.

“Very impressed and pleased with R & B. Jess and Scott were great to deal with, the quoted price was the price, and they readily accommodated my request to start Scott's workday even earlier to fit my schedule. (I do hope I'm getting the names right!) Would definitely recommend."


Lesley F.

“I had both a furnace technician and a plumber come in and I would highly recommend R&B Plumbing. Their techs were knowledgeable about some of my tricky plumbing problems and gave great advice on my furnace and water heater. Clean, punctual, polite and informative.”


Linus C.

“We only recommend and promote ONE plumbing company. R&B Plumbing. They have been reliable, friendly and professional in all their dealings with us. Will continue to recommend and use them for the foreseeable future.”

Victoria P.

“R & B Plumbing did a good job on our kitchen upgrade. We were able to set a schedule for the work and they stuck to that schedule. The boys arrived with everything they needed to get the job done and cleaned up after themselves. Great work, thanks.”

Edward C.

“R&B have consistently done great work for us, at fair prices, from replacing a furnace and a water heater to today's job, when Will dealt with a horrendously clogged bathroom sink. We recommend R&B highly.”

Alec S.

“We have used R & B Plumbing's services at least 3 times and each time we have been completely satisfied. We recently had a water heater replaced - from ordering to installation they (office staff & plumber) were completely professional and kept us informed of the estimated installation time/date. When we had issues with our tub & faucet, Adam quickly fixed our issue the same day. Fast, friendly, professional service.”

Miriam P.

“Had R&B in today to fix a leaking toilet and perform routing HRV and water tank maintenance. Great service! Their technician was professional and did a great job. I will call them again without a doubt!”

Andrew T.

“R&B stand behind their workmanship. They did a job at my place. There was still an issue after the first visit. They had to come back twice. No questions asked. No extra charges. They made sure the job was done right. Definitely recommend them.”

Stephen D.

“Great service -- very prompt, courteous and knowledgeable. We have had several plumbing issues and they have dealt with all of them successfully. Thank you!!”

Erika E.

“Thorough service and excellent communication. We would happily work with Sam and other R&B technicians again."

Aurelea M.

“I have called upon R&B several times for their services. Two clogged toilets and two pipe/faucet issues. In my experience their technicians are friendly and have done a great job fixing our plumbing problems. I will happily refer them and use their services again.”
