March 12, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies has grown into one of the largest, low-cost family- owned and operated San Diego plumbing companies. Additionally, they have opened two more divisions to offer the same high-quality services in San Diego heating & air conditioning and restoration & flood. Their success as a family-owned business has only grown as three of their daughters have joined the company over the years, as well as numerous employee families working together across the three divisions.

The Family-owned Business Awards are presented by the San Diego Business Journal and honor the “business and community accomplishments” of San Diego business as integral parts of the community. Family businesses represent approximately 50 percent of the gross domestic product as powerful economic forces and are present on the full spectrum of American businesses from small shops to large corporations. The awards ceremony will take place on April 3rd at the Paradise Point Resort and Spa.

The Bill Howe Family of Companies has been a staple in the San Diego community since opening their doors as a small one-man shop in 1980. Bill and Tina Howe have strategically grown that small outfit into a full-service one-stop shop offering high-quality services in plumbing, heating & air conditioning, and restoration & flood at affordable rates. The true family atmosphere Bill and Tina have cultivated has cemented the successful growth over the past 34 years. Three of their daughters joined the company after graduation, and have each worked tirelessly to uphold the high standards set forth by their parents, their niece recently celebrated her 17th year in the company and within each division, several families work side by side.

“We always come to our employees first whenever a position opens up in the company,” said Bill Howe, President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We retain great employees offering opportunities for promotion and inviting their family members into the same solid business model; it’s a win-win.”

This is the second time the San Diego plumbing company has been honored as a top family business. They are a multiple award-winning company with community recognition for promoting health and wellness, outstanding achievements in community service three years in a row and for the second time, the San Diego Business Journal recently named Tina Howe as one of 2014’s Woman Who Means Business.  The Bill Howe Family of Companies routinely gives back to the community through volunteerism, pro-bono plumbing, heating and restoration work, as well as a five-year commitment with the American Heart Association raising awareness and promoting healthy lifestyles throughout their community.

 “Just as our family members are part of our company, we think of all of our valued customers in San Diego as our family,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “Our community has supported us for 34 years and we are grateful to create a business that cares about them as we would our own family while offering only the best in everything we do.”

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.
