A common, prevailing notion in the construction industry is that it costs more to work with organized Plumbers. Albany's residents and business owners are increasingly recognizing this as a myth. Sure, you can always go lowest dollar on anything in life. However, it is also always true that you get what you pay for.
Going for the lowest bottom dollar in a building also carries risks, sometimes serious ones. In a situation where a Plumbers or Steamfitters shop is unaffiliated, workers may often have less training, the company may be less stable, and this poses the risk of greater work place and job site uncertainty and accident risk. Ultimately these costs are borne by the employer or the owner of the project.
