The Bill Howe Way: August Award Recipients

Bill Howe is proud to recognize Gustavo Valle, Samuel Ramirez, Melissa Taylor and Miguel Paredes for upholding the Bill Howe Way.

Gustavo-1Gustavo Valle, San Diego plumber and Journeyman Apprentice student is the recipient of the August Bill Howe Excellence Award.




Miguel Paredes, EMS Specialist for Bill Howe Restoration & Flood Services, was presented with the Leading by Example Award for his outstanding achievements throughout August. He had perfect arrival times and attendance, and his gear, truck, uniforms and job sites are all clean and well organized. He is a stellar example of the Bill Howe standards.miguel-1





samuel-1Samuel Ramirez, from our heating & air conditioning division in San Diego is the Customer Service Award winner for August. During a recent new A/C installation, he discovered that the unit would not fit and would be unable to move forward with the install. It was on a Friday, and instead of calling it a day and telling the customer it would have to wait, he called the office and got approval to do a temporary repair in order to get the customer a working A/C for the upcoming hot weekend. In the 105 degree weather, Samuel crawled into the attic and began troubleshooting ways in which to make a temporary fix. He came up with a solution, and spent the next two hours soldering in the sweltering attic. Bill Howe technicians are trained to go the extra step, and Samuel proved how when something goes wrong, there is always a solution to keep our customers happy and comfortable.

Melissa Taylor, a customer service representative and part of our epoxy drain lining division, received the Above & Beyond Award for August. She routinely takes the extra step for the Bill melissa-1Howe Family of Companies, attending special events and assisting customers outside of her field of expertise. In August, she hosted the Food Bank volunteer night and made homemade street tacos, as well as having a group of 50 employees show up to help out. She also received two outstanding online reviews from customers and set up a tee box sponsor at a recent industry golf tournament. She truly embodies all that Bill Howe is.




Don’t forget, when you call 1-800-Bill Howe (245-5469), you can request any one of our star employees, but even if you don’t every member of the Bill Howe team is dedicated to you, our valued customer!

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.
