Bill Howe All Stars: September

San Diego Plumber, Bill Howe “knows Howe!” But, so do the employees in the plumbing, heating & air conditioning, and restoration & flood divisions. To reward our team’s excellence, each month we present four company awards to individuals who have exceeded the Bill Howe standards.

For September achievements, we were proud to honor Jimmie Cook, Gilbert Zazueta, Joel Pearson, and Doug Powell.

Jimmie Cook is our September Above & Beyond Award Winner. He has consistently improved his skill set and craftsmanship since he began working at Bill Howe, and has even started to join the Bill Howe events, has outstanding customer reviews, and is one of our best at helping customers in need of our other services

The Leading by Example award is our Human Resource Manager’s Favorite. Leading by example is doing things the Bill Howe Way and being an example for the entire company. It is one of the hardest to choose each month, as we have the best team. For September, we were happy to honor Gilbert Zazueta. He could, and should have, received this award many times already and is the perfect example of an exemplary Bill Howe employee.

Miguel Gomez, San Diego Journeyman Plumber, is our Customer Service Winner for his achievements in September.  We could go on and on, but we’ll let two recent customers share their story:

“Miguel Gomez cleared a shower drain 2 1/2 years ago when no one else could. I asked for him to clear this difficult drain and he did it again. What most impressed me was how he was going to work on it until it drained properly. I will always as for Miguel when I need service.” Sharron via Bill Howe Website

“Yesterday Miguel Gomez came to clear the kitchen sink and check a leak in the laundry room. The window of opportunity for him to show up was from 8am-1pm. He got here at 8:00!! Awesome! Miguel was polite and well mannered and so respectful that my 86 year old mom wanted him to come back and visit her sometime […] he replaced a cracked pipe in the wall of the laundry room. Total cost $166. Total time spent: less than 2 hours, that includes having to go to Home Depot for the pipe. Other companies I had called to quote started at $350. He also left the laundry room cleaner than when he started. Miguel spoke highly of the Bill Howe family/company and so will I! Thank you Miguel!!” Gloria via Bill Howe Website

Our Excellence winner has been recognized for his craftsmanship multiple times. Doug Powell, possibly the best gas related San Diego plumber (we’re serious) handled a recent gas lockout with absolute perfection. He had to run over 170 feet of gas line, but he also had to ensure it was strapped up above ground, which meant installing chain link fencing temporarily. When asked if it passed inspection, Doug replied, “Do you have to ask?”

Whether you need an expert San Diego plumber or water damage specialist, we have you covered with the highest trained team of all-stars. Call 1-800 Bill Howe (245-5469). You’ll be glad you did.

What Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
