2 Big Jobs...Hire 2 Companies?

i have 2 big plumbing jobs in my crawl space:

1. replace cast iron sewer pipes

Cast Iron Sewer Pipe 1950s

2. replace galvanized steel pipes

Pex or Copper for Crawl Space

i'd like to do both jobs in a span of 2-3 days. the question is: is it better to hire 2 different companies to handle each job separately. or, use the same company for both jobs?

Use the same outfit---just let them know your time limit so they can charge you enough to meet your dead line---

Two companies will take longer,by far.

First company will do the drains--but the second company will not work on site,in the same space as the first company---so the job will take much longer.

By the way---to a plumbing company,that is not a big job---repiping a factory or hospital is a big job.A house,however large ,is just another repipe job.
