My parents needed a complete re-piping of their water pipes, plus a new water main to the city's water connection. I called various plumbers to get estimates. Bill from Advanced Repipe specialist was very professional and gave me a folder full of information and the best quote. On the day we agreed upon, Ramiro and crew were out at my parent's house and in one day replaced all the water pipes with new copper pipes. While I'm not a water pipe expert, I do a lot of home repairs by myself and the materials they used appear to be top notch (brass fittings, stainless steel connectors) and I was impressed with the quality of work. Going under the house is tough, dirty work, but they put down floor protectors to keep dirt contained and made quick work of this big project. I wanted to give them 4.5 stars, but this is my first yelp review and I don't know how to score a 1/2 star! The only reason I am not giving a full 5 stars is a few minor hiccups in the process. 1) The water heater gas wasn't turned back on so I called PG&E to turn on (quick and free); 2) the wire netting for the crawl space ventilation was cut to give access to install copper pipes and while the wire was bent back into place, I felt it should have been sealed to prevent rodents from entering crawl space; 3) after installation of water pipes, there was a week delay in completing the project (patching drywall and filling hole in front yard due to a problem with permit (city error). Once the permit was corrected, they did great job of patching drywall holes. I would recommend anyone using this firm (or any other contractor) to inspect work and use new connections before final payment.
They appear to be honest, hardworking people and I definitely recommend this company. It's been about a month and the water pipes and faucets are working great! In fact, I have asked for a quote from Advanced repipe to install a new tankless water heater in MY home. Thank you Ramiro, Bill and crew!
