Plumbers: Knowing the Good from the Bad

Hiring a good plumber is like hiring anyone who can provide a service to you. There are plenty of options for you to choose from, but some are not as desirable as others. After all, what’s keeping anyone from saying they are a plumber, even if they don’t have any of the proper credentials? Nothing really.
That is why it is so important that you do the research that is required in order to find a reliable and knowledgeable plumber in your area. In a past post, we talked about the best way to narrow your list of potential plumbing company candidates. Today we are going to better prepare you with a list of questions you should ask candidates when you have narrowed down your list to just a handful of plumbing companies.

Consider asking the following questions:

  • Do you have reputable references?
  • What are your credentials?
  • Do you offer emergency plumbing services?
  • What are your service fees?
  • Do you charge extra for travel?
  • Do you complete smaller jobs like drain cleaning?
  • What do you specialize in? Installation? Service? Repair?
  • Are you insured?
  • Are your plumbers licensed?

Asking all of the aforementioned questions will prevent you from experiencing any unpleasant surprises when it comes to your chosen plumbing company in the future. In short, be sure to hire a company that not only has all of the credentials necessary but also that has a good reputation, as that is the best tell if a company worthy of your business.
