A Few Things to Consider Before Hiring a Plumber

by Guest on Nov 26, 2013

As a home owner you know that things break and wear out. Home plumbing repairs may require calling a professional plumber to help you solve your problem.

Before hiring a plumber you may want to consider the following:

1.Ability: Choose a plumber or plumbing company based on the reputation and reviews of the customers rather than the cost alone.

2. License or Certification: Check for the license or certification, they may need to have it in order to make their company legitimate. Moreover every state issues the one.

3. Insurance: They must have both workers' compensation and liability insurance. The cost of hiring someone without it could be tremendous.

4. Visits: Group all your plumbing repairs so that their is only one visit to save the most money

5. Service Guarantees: What happens if after some minutes/hours/days after words the problem returns? Will it be re-fixed? Is the work guaranteed? Ask for a written warranty.

6. Safety: What if injuries or property damage occur during the repair work. It's always a good idea to ask rather than assume that hey will handle things in a professional manner.

7. Clean Up: Are they taking the responsibility for the clean up after the work has been finished? Will they properly dispose of the old fixtures or pipe?

8. Pricing: It is good to compare prices before you hire one. Sometimes lowest prices as well highest prices didn't give you the best value or result. Request a written estimate before you start.

Consider these things in order to make sure you are choosing the right plumber for your home and within your budget.
