What do we do?
Well, you might expect us to say that we’re a plumbing specialty shop — and you’d be half right. But, what we really do here is make people happy — the kind of happy a person gets when they find that exact, perfect sink to fit that exact, perfect spot and fit the style of their space, too. Since 1979, the Sink Factory has been serving the public as a purveyor of fine vintage and contemporary plumbing fixtures, providing truly personalized service that is geared to — you guessed it — make the customer happy.
We specialize in quality, classic, hard-to-find plumbing, especially from the pre-1940 period, but we have an extensive array of modern fixtures as well. You will find in our showroom a diverse and abundant variety of basins, vessels and sinks, including pedestal, top mount, under mount, wall mount and above counter models; corner sinks, double sinks and mini-sinks. We also offer cast iron-ceramic and stainless steel sinks for the kitchen and utility room; as well as beautiful antique tubs; water closets and toilets; and various paraphernalia, such as shower rods, shower heads, etc.
Though our in-house stock is extensive, if the item you want isn’t in our showroom, we will special order it for you. Whatever your needs and tastes, and whatever your style of home, our knowledgeable staff will help you find just the right fixture for you. And to complete your plumbing picture, our large selection of faucets, new and old, ensures that you’ll find one to complement your sink or tub superbly and please the most discerning eye.
Perhaps you don’t want to make a major purchase. Perhaps you just need to pick up a part from our vast supply, such as a gasket (washers, etc.) or stem, a claw foot or handle. We are happy to help you there, too. Along with sales help, we at the Sink Factory also provide you with precision repair and customizing services to meet your needs, right here in our complete machine shop. Perhaps you need us to fix an old faucet or adapt a new one to your existing sink. Done. And if you want a custom shower rod for that splendid bath tub, we do that as well. Our skilled, in-house staff is dedicated to make your selections not only work, but work beautifully.
We are known for our friendly, helpful service, our extensive selection, our encyclopedic knowledge of the products, and our quality craftsmanship. You’ll find on our website a sampling of what’s available in our showroom. But come see us at 2140 San Pablo in Berkeley and find out for yourself what makes The Sink Factory a special place for plumbing. — and, who knows, we just might make you happy, too.
