Re: Cracked plumbing
Make sure you get an itemized estimate. The plumber you already contacted may have factored excavation, landscaping, and concrete repair into the estimate. You may find it less expensive to be your own general contractor, and hire the excavator, plumber, concrete crew, and landscaper separately.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
