Hello,

I am re-piping my house with copper tubing, and I received the lowest bid of $4680, is this too high. This bid is only for the pipes inside the house, not from the house to the street. Please respond I need your help.

Thank you

Rita

VERY,very,very cheap price.

I just used copper tubing in a home and charged over $396,000.

By the way for your information copper prices have more then tripled in lass then a year and It certainly would help if you happened to mention how many bath rooms you have how many kitchens what size diameter the piping is going to be does this include repairing the walls is the plumbing contractor a licensed master plumber fully insured?

It is like me asking HOW MUCH DOES A CAR COST ....no make or model given

Hello,

Thank you very much for responding to my message. The house is a one level, single family dwelling with crawlspace. It has 1 bathroom, with 2 sinks, 1 shower, and 1 toilet, and 1 kitchen with 1 sink no dishwasher or ice maker, and 1 water heater located outside, 2 outside faucets, and a washing machining in the garage. The current piping is in the walls.

On the estimate sheet the contractor made no mention of the type or size of pipe being installed. I will be inquiring about this when I contact him regarding his estimate. Yes the quote of $4680 does include the patch plaster and putting panel back up. The contractor’s credentials check out active license, bonded, and worker’s comp insurance. The contractor is installing the pipe coming up through the floor. Is this a common practice?
