August 22, 2014 5:47 AM Subscribe
We're doing a pre-war renovation in Jackson Heights, Queens, NYC where our co-op requires we have a plumber replace the branch piping, new valves and shower pan for both the bathroom and the branch piping/valves in the kitchen. Questions: i) Is the below cost estimate reasonable. ii) Any recommendations of pre-war savvy licensed/insured plumbers in Queens or North Brooklyn?

i) What do people think for this kind of cost below. Bear in mind our General Contractor is doing all the demolition and wall rebuilding.

Total cost $6250 before tax and permits. (closer to 7.2k once that's done)
ii) IF anyone can recommend a plumber who would be more affordable, is licensed and insured and has worked in JH pre war co-ops before, please reply or message me!
PLEASE: If they are not licensed and insured forget it, as this needs to go to the board.
