November Awards Recognized at Bill Howe!

Bill Howe is proud to recognize Sergio Cota, Doug Powell, Edgar Godinez, and Jim Richards, Mike Castaing, Mel Sturla and garrett Serrano for upholding the Bill Howe Way. The Bill Howe Special recognition awards are presented at each monthly company meeting recognizing excellence during the previous month.

*Because of the Holidays, the November Company meeting was not held, so employees could enjoy Thanksgiving with their families. Both October and November award recipients were announced at the December company meeting.

Sergio Cota has been with Bill Howe Plumbing in San Diego since 2007. He first started as a lining tech, but joined the warehouse and has been an integral part ever since. He is meticulous and an exemplary employee, which is why he was presented with the November Leading by Example award.

Doug Powell is the Customer Service Award Winner for November. Bill Howe received an outstanding review form one of his customers, Mike T. that shows why he is the best San Diego plumber out there! The following excerpt speaks volumes and is not a surprise, as Doug is one of the best:

Google + review from Mike: “…NOT EVERY PLUMBER IS CAPABLE. An important lesson I learned. Without hot water or heat for my 5 and 3 year old, we got a referral and called the pros at Bill Howe. Doug came out the next morning and in less than 30 minutes, not only diagnosed the problem, but spent the rest of the day fixing it. I’M SO HAPPY I CALLED THESE GUYS!!! All of the other plumbers said they would need to cut out dry wall and do tons of patch and repair all over the house. Doug did the troubleshooting and cut 2 small holes. In my opinion, this saved me a TON of money. These guys are truly the best!!”

Edgar Godinez is one of Bill Howe’s Team Leaders, with excellent results in the improvement of company morale and his team’s performance. He is the November recipient for the Above & Beyond Award for his commitment to the Bill Howe Family of Companies volunteer efforts with the San Diego Food Bank, and impressive online reviews. He is also a regular attendee of Bill Howe sponsored 5k’s and willing to go out of his way to help his team and the company.

The San Diego lining crew, Jim Richards, Mike Castaing, Mel Sturla, Garret Serrano, and Ian Adame were recognized as a group and presented with the November  Excellence award for their work at a 20 story high rise in downtown San Diego. The project lasted for three weeks, and the crew lined 475’ of 4 and 5-inch cast iron vertical waste lines, as well as the vent lines. They completed the job ahead of schedule and under budget.

Don’t forget, when you call 1-800-Bill Howe (245-5469), you can request any one of our star employees. Whether you are in need of heating service or repair, or have a plumbing problem in San Diego, you can count on the professionals at Bill Howe.

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

I have been using Bill Howe since the late 1980’s, their service has always been excellent, plumbing, heating and restoration. I am most impressed by the integrity of their employees, not only do they know their work/skill, they do not waste time, they are so efficient, they are so helpful and they are a true “service”!

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

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.
