Proudly Serving Rhode Island for Generations

Martel Plumbing and Heating, founded in 1926, has been run by four generations of the Martel family: Adelard J. Martel (1882–1963), better known by his nickname “Cap”, Roy Martel Sr. (1911–2003), locally known as “Jake the Plumber”, James Martel Sr. (1957–2012), and James Martel Jr. (2012–Present). Over the past 98 years of operation, Martel Plumbing and Heating has become Rhode Island’s oldest and most trusted plumbing and heating company, serving all of Rhode Island and neighboring Massachusetts.

Today, we have nearly 30 licensed specialists who provide second-to-none precision and craftsmanship. We also pride ourselves on staying up-to-date with the latest technologies and equipment on the market. To do so, we provide weekly personal training for all our specialists, both in-house at our state-of-the art live fire training wall and at factory trainings held by our local distributors and equipment manufacturers. With the 5th generation of Martel Plumbing and Heating currently active in the field, we excitedly look forward to celebrating our centennial only two short years away in 2026 and continuing to serve our community for generations to come!
