Brad & Lallenia Birge
My name is Brad Birge and I have over 18 years plumbing experience but have been a workingman since the age of 14. I started in the construction industry working for a local company learning window, seamless steel gutter, and siding installation. I quickly worked my way up to foreman learning what it takes to manage my own jobs and a crew of men. After evaluating my future, I decided to launch my career into a trade profession.
Owner & Master Plumber, Brad Birge
I considered framing and carpentry companies, and the ironworkers local 21 before applying at multiple plumbing companies (not knowing exactly what I was getting into). A commercial/industrial plumbing company took a chance on me and enrolled me in the apprenticeship program. For the first month, I thought I had made the worst mistake of my life as I dug ditches in 100-degree weather with a foreman barking orders at me. However, in time, I started to get the hang of it and soaked up as much information as I could. During this time, I began to appreciate the beauty and art involved in plumbing and was hooked!
I have had the privilege of learning from some of the best plumbers today. They taught me plumbing theory, code, and tricks of the trade to make me efficient, professional, and knowledgeable. After years of hard work, I have earned the level of journeyman plumber and was promoted to foreman by my last employer.
I decided it’s time to take another leap towards improving and investing in the future for my family and myself. I have now accomplished getting my Masters License and owning a plumbing company. I have a beautiful wife, amazing son, and precious little daughter, for whom I want to provide the absolute best. It is my wish to use the gifts with which the Lord has blessed me, as well as my education and experience to bring the best possible plumbing service to the Omaha Metro and surrounding areas using the best practices and skills I have acquired over the years.
Deep in my heart, I believe I was destined to serve you as Big Birge Plumbing and it is my honor and privilege to offer my customers the best service and fairest prices around.
Thank you for stopping by – Brad

Hi! Unlike my husband, I do NOT have years of plumbing experience nor have I dug ditches in 100-degree weather. Honestly, I’m sure my husband has had to use our drain machine at our house more than most of his “regular” customers (pun intended). I did not realize you aren’t supposed to flush wax down the toilet or not put all the food scraps from your plate or grease into the garbage disposal (oops)!
My background is in the fitness industry! When I first met Brad, I was a personal trainer at the gym he worked out at and have been in the fitness industry for over 10 years now. I LOVE working with people and helping them become stronger and healthier.
After we had our first child we decided to start Big Birge Plumbing. I did not realize everything that would go into this company and raising a little one so I had to reevaluate our situation and decided to back off full time personal training and learn how to run and operate a business.
Now I put my energy into being a wife, mother of two amazing kiddos and helping in every way possible to make our dreams of having the best plumbing company in Omaha and surrounding areas a reality.
