Tom joined his father at Nicola Plumbing in 1988, right after he received his journeyman certificate.

He now has over 25 years of experience in his trade - sheetmetal and gas fitting - and is definitely the go-to guy for a new furnace!


He also holds a TECA certificate for heat-loss calculations and duct sizing and his pride and joy is the company's sheet metal shop, where he spends his time making custom orders.
