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.
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. 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?
Please respond I need your help. Thank you.
