Journeyman Plumber

Katie Byrd

Master Plumber & CEO

Sitting with her great grandfather eating raw oysters in 1989, Katie never envisioned that one day she too would own a plumbing company like him. Hard work and entrepreneurship run deep in Katie’s lineage. Falling into Clarksburg plumibng in 2010 after daycare was too expensive in MoCo for twins, Katie started learning all aspects of the trade and the business with her boys in tow. Adding a cross connection certification in 2018, WSSC Journeyman License in 2021 and WSSC Gas Journeyman License in 2022, Katie strives to do all she can to help the team. (She also has her Maryland Home Improvement license and facilitated the company earning nationwide WBENC certification in 2019.) When not at work, Katie is spending quality time in her garage gym, growing tomatoes in her garden and trying to remember to water them. She loves reading all books and being with her family.

JR Byrd

Master Plumber & Co-Owner

JR is a second generation master plumber, learning the trade from his dad at 12 years old. His dad owned his own business in the 80’s and 90’s and eventually became a plumbing inspector. So the standard he held JR to was top in the industry. JR’s favorite aspect of the plumbing trade is running pipe. He loves to see the straight lines! When JR is not working he spends time with his family, shooting guns, hunting and collecting shoes. His dream is to be able to pass his knowledge on to his children so they can provide an honest living for their future families.

At Clarksburg Plumbing we provide a

Personalized Plumbing experience

At Clarksburg Plumbing we know our customers want to feel in control and at peace. In order to be that way you need a plumber who will listen to you, hear your needs and worries, and strategize a solution with you.

The problem is there are a lot of options and you don’t know who to trust or how to vet plumbing companies, which makes you feel anxious and unsure about what to do.

We believe it is wrong to take advantage of anyone. We understand because we are home owners and a business owner living in your same local community. That’s why it is important for us to serve our community and our customers by providing honest, truthful diagnosis of your plumbing issue.

Here’s how it works

  1. We inspect and assess the issue.
  2. We give you a fair estimate (of cost and time).
  3. We show up on time when promised and will stay until the work is completed perfectly, leaving your property better than we found it.

Call for a diagnosis or book an appointment now (24/7),
so you can stop feeling out of control and regain your peace of mind and get your property back to running like normal.
