Our History

Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling for the Washington DC Area Since 1912

At the turn of the century, when his competitors’ horses and Model Ts were getting stuck in the muddy streets of Washington, D.C., entrepreneurial young plumber John G. Webster was speeding around the city on his bicycle fixing leaky pipes and clogged drains before his competitors could even get to them.
He set out not only to be the fastest, but the best. And more than 100 years later, the John G. Webster company is still the very best, growing into one of the leading residential and commercial HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) and plumbing companies in the Washington D.C. metro area.

A proud history

John G. Webster installed Washington D.C.’s very first automatic boiler and gas water heater in 1912. The John G. Webster team has been writing the book on plumbing, heating and air conditioning for Washington-area residents ever since.
The John G. Webster company grew quickly.
Just 12 years after Mr. Webster founded his business, he opened the John G. Webster storefront on F Street NW, a Washington landmark for over 50 years.
The company was known for its fast and friendly, uniformed technicians and easily recognizable fleet of John G. Webster service vehicles.
