You wouldn’t hire just anyone to work on your vehicle, right? Or to provide you with home security? Then why would you hire just anyone to work on your expansive and important plumbing system? You want to make sure the plumber you call will get the job done quickly, correctly, and reliably.
You may go online and find a number of professional plumbers that fit the bill. But do you know the qualities that are most important to look at before you hire one? We’ll share some guidelines to help you choose the right professional plumbing contractor for your home.
They Offer Emergency Services
Have you ever heard of a plumbing problem that happens at a convenient time? Yeah, neither have we! Something urgent such as a burst pipe or sudden leak tends to be a problem you don’t want to wait around to have fixed—especially since not only are you dealing with water loss but you’re also risking water-related property damage, too.
A quality plumbing company will offer same-day service to ensure your plumbing problem is dealt with as quickly as possible. Check the top of this page for our phone number and give us a call when you have an emergency plumbing situation on your hands.
They Are Reputable
Would you work with a company you knew nothing about? Even if it wasn’t a home services company and was for something minor, you probably want to at least see if you have a trusted friend or neighbor who has used or visited the company before—or you at least want to see what their customer reviews look like.
Most reputable plumbing companies will have great customer testimonials that demonstrate the quality and proficiency of their work. In addition to these good reviews, most reputable plumbers are also affiliated with leading industry certifications. Interested in learning more about our certifications? Give us a call!
They’ll Give You an Upfront Estimate
It’s rare that a plumbing company would start work on your plumbing system without first diagnosing the issue, and then submitting an estimate of the cost to you. In fact, if a company skips out on doing an estimate of their work beforehand, you should probably skip out on them.
A proper diagnosis and estimate lets you know exactly what you’re dealing with right away, so you aren’t suddenly surprised by hidden costs or anything else unpleasant.
Their Website Is Updated
Typically, a plumbing company that has a frequently updated blog, seasonal promotions, an active social media presence, and recent reviews is a plumbing company that is active and busy and does everything it can to ensure its customers are satisfied. An active online presence is a great sign of a professional and customer-centric plumbing company.
They Offer a Variety of Services
It’s easy to come in and fix a clog. What’s harder is to relieve deep clogs from a sewer system, diagnose where a leak is coming from, install new fixtures and determine when plumbing pipes need replacement, or to know what your water treatment opportunities are. A seasoned and effectively trained plumber will be able to do all of this and more.
