Ross Caples, was born and raised in Santa Rosa, CA. After high school, he moved to Redding, CA, with his family and then attended Wyoming Technical Institute. Ross graduated with an Associate's degree in Business Management.
At the age of 19, Ross began working with his older cousin as a plumbing apprentice and worked with several local plumbing and mechanical plumbing companies throughout his career.
Ross excelled at the PHCC plumbing apprentice program in Sacramento and the Shasta Builders Training Program in Redding. Ross carried that success into his career - within the first 3 years, he was running projects.
Ross eventually worked his way up to lead journeyman plumber for a successful local company, overseeing jobs ranging from small service calls to large commercial jobs.
Continuing his plumbing education, Ross gained every certification that he could, including a med gas certification which allowed him to work inside hospitals and medical facilities.
Ross soon was estimating projects and attending job walks for the company's owner. However, as much as he loved the job and the freedoms he had, he recognized that he would always be an employee unless he took matters into his own hands and started his own company.
Ross took the leap of faith and is now in his second year as a licensed contractor and business owner. He attributes his early success to his parents, and his older cousin and other older and wiser journeyman plumbers that he gained knowledge from along the way.
He believes that great companies begin with great people and he strives to put his beliefs into action by giving the best service possible. He not only wants to become the customer's plumber, but their friend. What Ross loves most about his trade is that he can make someone's dreams a reality, or be there when needed to save the day.
As Standardized Plumbing's founder Ross has quickly grown his company into a well-respected, successful company. Ross values: honesty, values, hard work and family. He looks forward to growing his family one customer at a time!
“ I started working with Standardized Plumbing through a referral from a contractor friend. We used them for a remodeling project, an emergency sewer line replacement and routine service calls. We found them great to work with, always thinking through with us the various options/cost for the project. They over communicate on project timing and when they would get started on a specific day…..very helpful! We also found them very price competitive.
I really recommend Standardized Plumbing."
