Where do you live Bill? It's not in your profile. Do the risers (supply pipes feeding the 2nd floor) need replacing too? You need to give more information. Are you getting a new water service from the city main to your water meter?

That price is right on for L.A. Make sure your plumber pulls a permit and also uses "type L" copper or better. erik

It's almost a year-old posting, but I live in Eagle Rock and have to re-pipe my house. Would love to know who you used, BillR!

Can you please post here or e-mail me at jimmyjames900@hotmail.com?

Hi Bill, I was wondering if you could give me the name of the guy (or gal :) you used for your coper piping. I know it has been some time now since you posted on the matter, but I thought I would give it a shot.

Thanks!

I live in the San Diego area and am attempting to get estimates for copper repiping of my 1400 square foot manufactured home. So far, I received a quote of $5,900 which sounds way too high. I was wondering what the going rate is for copper repiping of a manufactured home. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Personally I think the price is way to low.

Considering a legitimate master plumber has insurance, over head such as an office and of course if a LMP decides to send a journeyman (not an OJ trained stumblebum) but a qualified mechanic and the mechanic should be compensated properly for her or his skills

Paying someone in the envelope $45 is considered a fair price as a skilled person also deserves to make a living wage plus the benefits of sick days /personal days /vacation days /heath insurance as not all of us believe the socialist government is to take care of all the needs of society

You get what you normally pay for and if you want cheap I would strongly suggest you hire some illegal’s pick up "M" tubing strictly imported fittings and valves NOT file the job ( as it only protects you)

You certainly would not want to get my hourly rate as you would need a second mortgage then again most professionals should know their worth as many lawyers are content working as ADA's or for the government for their chump change and a decent lawyer starting right out of law school can demand over $125,000 per year.

Any plumber or so called plumbing contractor willing to give a price not knowing the other contractors over head is either working from their home or lives from pay check to pay check because they were to cheap /stupid to crunch the numbers of knowing what the true cost of doing business
