How to Hire the Right Plumber.
When it comes to certain home repairs or maintenance tasks, going DIY can often save you a pretty penny.
Still, if you don’t have the requisite skill, tools, time, and/or patience, sooner or later you’re going to need the services of a professional plumber or plumbing company. If that day were today, would you know the right questions to ask to help ensure your chosen plumber proved to be the right match? Someone you could trust to do the job right – first time, every time?
Not sure about that? Then we’re confident you’ll find the following recommended selection criteria more than a little useful:
Experience. Whether fixing a cracked water pipe or tackling a bathroom remodel, you want someone with experience and know-how. So ask how long they’ve been in business, what special certifications they carry, and what areas of plumbing they specialize in.
License and Insurance. In a perfect world, your plumbing issue would be resolved swiftly and without any hiccups. In reality, accidents happen. A licensed and insured plumbing company will be able to protect itself and your home should anything go wrong.
Reasonable rates. Be wary of contractors who grossly underbid their competition. While they may save you a few dollars initially, you could end up paying more in the long run.
Warranty. A trustworthy plumbing contractor will stand behind their work and back it up with some type of warranty or quality assurance guarantee.
Written estimates. When your bathroom turns into an indoor swimming pool, the last thing you want is a “ballpark” cost. Choose a plumber who will provide you with a firm written estimate in advance.
Emergency service. Plumbing problems rarely happen when it’s convenient for you. So ask your plumber if they offer after-hours emergency service, and if there is an additional charge for it.
