Most of the time when you hear the word “plumber” you get the willies. The word evokes thoughts of water overflowing from the toilet or the water heater. But in the case of remodeling, this is a professional that can really help, when remodeling your kitchen, a trained plumber will become your best friend.
While you can hire a general contractor to do the kitchen remodeling project, he is just going to oversee other contractors like the plumber, and to top it off, he is going to raise the price of the job by about 30% (his take home profit). Instead, you can beat the general contractor at his own game by hiring a plumber to do your plumbing remodeling job.
But just how do you find a plumbing contractor for your kitchen remodeling job?
Find a Reliable Plumber
This is the first step towards getting a reliable kitchen remodeling job done at an affordable price. Talk to your neighbors, especially those you now who have recently done some remodeling. Get names of plumbing professionals. Look for someone who wants more than an emergency repair, someone who is prepared to perform solid plumbing work and follow a work schedule and estimate.
Look for State Licensing
Call your state licensing office and see if the plumber you are considering hiring is licensed, or whether there are any unresolved complaints against him. Licensing means a plumber meets minimum requirements to maintain his license.
Know What You Want
Before you get an estimate from your plumber, know what you want. Draw out a rough plan so the plumber knows what kind of fixtures and piping you want.

This is the 1st time that I used James Caccia Plumbing and it will not be the last. I called early Monday morning to schedule an appointment for a clogged drain. They were able to provide me service the same day. They gave me a window from 2-4pm for service and they said that they would call if they could come earlier. They called 30 minutes prior to arrival for a 2pm start. My technician's name was Denver and he was fantastic. He gave a free estimate and clearly explained the scope of work prior to service. When the job was bigger than anticipated and he needed assistance with equipment, the office was able to quickly respond and send another tech for assistance so I did not have to re-schedule. Daniel was the 2nd tech and he was also great. They worked their butts off and were positive, friendly, and very focused. They did a great job and were thorough checking that everything was working properly before they left. Their work area was also cleaner that it was when they started. Thanks for a great service experience.
