I recently completed a project with Bill Howe Plumbing. It involved restoration and reconstruction of my bathroom. It started with a bad odor and turned out that the flange in the toilet had been leaking for quite awhile without me knowing. It caused a lot of the floor underneath the tile and parts of the walls to be contaminated and damaged.

I called Howe after my regular plumber told me he wouldn’t be able to look at it for days. Howe sent their EMS Lead Technician, Carlos Paredes out within hours. Carlos told me what he proposed would need to happen in order to get it dried out, sanitized and ready for the next step which would be reconstruction. I liked Carlos and what he proposed. I was happy to know that, if I decided to go further, that Howe would continue the project through restoration. Since I recently had a contractor run off with $1600, I didn’t want to deal with trying to find random people to help me with so many different pieces of the project. I liked that everything could be completed as a package. I am so happy that I made that decision. Carlos immediately brought machinery and people to do the job. He even did much of it himself!!

Howe then sent out their reconstruction estimator, Luis Paredes, who just happens to be Carlos’ brother. I liked the fact that they are brothers and I liked Luis. He and I seemed to have similar taste in how we would redo my bathroom. He heard what I said and sent me an estimate that contained all the elements that I wanted. I decided to do it all as long as I could have Luis as my project manager even though that isn’t part of what he does. My request was granted by his supervisor and we got to work. Luis coordinated the project and advised me along the way with decisions that I just couldn’t seem to make myself.

I really enjoyed working with these brothers and I just can’t say which one I liked better!!

I LOVE my new little bathroom!! There were so many people who made it happen.

DJ Williams is one of the plumbers who had worked for me once before on my old floor furnace. I have had lots of people work on it but it was never done right until DJ came along. He even came back a year later when I had a question about it. It was a minor thing. He showed me how to deal with it and didn’t charge me for his time. He also did a great job with my new bathroom plumbing. I like that he is always happy and smiling.

Jose and Vi Duran were the tile installers. They worked for days and did a beautiful job on all the tile in the shower and on the floor.

Gerardo Cervantes removed the old wallpaper. Alfred Adams is an excellent painter did a great job. The final plumbing was done by Christian (who needed to modify the sink hookup) and Mauricio. Also the original plumber was Brandon Gomez.

Unfortunately I don’t have the names of everyone involved, but they were all friendly and professional. They would ask me if there was anything else that they could do for me while they were here and they did whatever I asked!!! Great company. I will definitely use them again.

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.

What Michelle says about us

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.
