Looking for plumber in Detroit Metro area to help with bath remodel

Hello all,

I live in Southfield, MI, and I have recently started a major remodel of our small master bath. I am going to do all of the work myself, and feel pretty competent with most everything. Except for the plumbing that is. I think I want that done by a pro.

I need the shower drain and toilet drain moved (1 foot for the shower drain, about 3 feet for the toilet). The bathroom is on a concrete slab (ranch house, no basement). I also want the shower head and controls moved to the opposite wall in the shower stall.

I have only lived in the area for four years, so I don't have many contacts for referrals for professionals. And I know I want a plumber that will do it right the first time, since the plumbing will be under concrete after it is finished.

So I will probably have other questions for the group but first off I could really use a referral for a good plumber in the Detroit Metro area. Thanks for your help.

Greg

Hi Greg, Welcome.

Put a post in the Pro Hangout, too. See if someone there can help you. Personally, I think moving drains is the easy part.

Hi John,

Thanks, this is a great website you have here.

So you really think moving drains is a DIY?

I already figured that I would do the concrete busting and re-pouring myself to save money. Maybe I should consider doing the drain plumbing too.

Again, thanks for supporting such a great site.

Greg

Greg,

NOW is probably going to get on me for saying this, but we have girls moving plumbing. They get a little help with the heavy lifting is all.

Greg, If you want to DIY, the folks around here will help you. Once you've got the hole busted, the rest is easy! If you have a digital camera so you can shoot pics and post them to this forum, you're all set.

Cool, more home improvement stuff I can try myself.

I used to be braver about trying new stuff when my grandfather was still able to help me, but unfortunately he doesn't have the stamina for these types of projects anymore.

I still think I'll have davem's friend come give me an estimate, as I have some supply side plumbing that needs to be moved also.

Thanks for the motivation and support!
