quote; that plumer said $10,000 and i asked him for a materials list... have not gotten one yet
And if I were the plumber, you would NEVER get one. Why should I take the time to generate a material list, then give it to you, so you could either give it to someone else to give you a bid, or use it to DIY the job. You are trying to do a complete plumbing job with e-mails over the Internet. That is a recipe for a DIY nightmare installation. I bid a remodel a couple of weeks ago, more extensive than yours but it still ran over $16,000.00.
