Sutherland Plumbing – a REAL family company!

We frequently hear talk of “Local,” “Family-Owned” or “Family-Operated” companies. Sometimes it’s true, but sometimes these companies are actually huge corporations or franchises! 

At Sutherland Plumbing we pride ourselves in being the Portland metro area’s premier family-owned & family-operated plumbing company. Each & every time you work with Sutherland Plumbing, every single customer will always work with a real Sutherland family member at some point during the process.  No huge offices & no endless bureaucracy.

That’s just one of the Sutherland Plumbing differences!

Why Choose Sutherland Plumbing?

Clear, accurate estimates with no surprises:

Today is no different from the past – businesses compete over price and sometimes price alone. One way businesses do this is to quote cheap prices over the phone or advertise low rates and then tell you what it’s really going to cost once they are in your home or business!  A.K.A “the bait and switch!” The cheap rate over the phone is often half the truth. The low rate or quote “sight unseen” may not include or cover a variety of items that usually cost extra.

Sutherland Plumbing technicians will look at the issue, explain the process in detail and answer all of your questions prior to work commencing. This way you know what all of your options are and what costs those options carry before any work begins!

Master Plumber Ti Sutherland will personally provide you with a clear, concise, accurate, written estimate prior to any work commencing. Just call (503) 719-4015. Call Today!

aka Katrina Sutherland!

Katrina loves spending time being involved with her Church, taking trips to the coast with the family and spending quality time with her Dad, Danny J Fullerton.

Dan Fullerton is a Veteran of the United States Army with years of distinguished service to our Nation including:

Fighting in Vietnam, Recipient of the National Defense Service Medal, Recipient of The M-14 Rifle Sharpshooter Badge and Recipient of The 45-Caliber Pistol Marksmanship Badge.

(He’s definitely not the kinda guy you wanna mess with)!

Dan was stationed everywhere from Kansas to Germany and was honorably discharged in 1972.

As you can see, Katrina’s busy 24/7/365, but she still finds time to relax and enjoy life!

Meet Katrina Sutherland – The Woman Behind the Scenes! (Part 2)

Continuing to meet the woman behind the scenes: aka Katrina Sutherland! Where would Sutherland Plumbing be without Katrina?  Well, let’s see…

Katrina moved to Portland in 1999 to go to radiography school (x-ray). She graduated in 2001 and started working at Legacy Emanuel Hospital. After a couple of years of x-ray work, she applied for a CT (cat scan) position.

Shortly thereafter, Katrina took her board exams and became certified! Katrina worked full-time until March 2013 when she had her first daughter. After Mckenzie was born, Katrina stopped working full-time and took an on-call position at Legacy Emanuel. In December 2014 Katrina had her second daughter, Makena!

These days, Katrina is so busy with Sutherland Plumbing, that if she does pick-up a shift at Legacy Emanuel, it’s usually only on the weekends.

Katrina’s able to do all of this while educating & entertaining three young children: Presley, Mckenzie and Makena!
