How To Choose The Right Plumber

How to choose the right plumber

When it comes to plumbers there are quite literally hundreds of options, and that’s just in your local area!

Whether you’re looking for someone who can install a new faucet, perform routine maintenance or respond to an emergency, it’s vital that you are able to call on the right plumber who is capable of safely and efficiently completing the job.

So where on earth do you start and how do you choose the right plumber for you?

Here are the top things to look for.

Track Record

Plumbers come and plumbers go, you can usually tell the good ones from the phonies based on how long they’ve been in business and what their customers are saying about them. The longer they have been in business, the more reliable, well established and trusted they are.

Qualifications

Professional plumbers are qualified for a reason… plumbing is hard and it’s most certainly not for everyone.

Insurance

In a previous blog, we spoke about how important it is to use a professional to ensure that warranties and insurances remain valid, and we’re bringing it up again here! If your plumber isn’t insured and if something goes wrong you could end up in a serious mess… Always ask to check a certificate of insurance for peace of mind.

Service Guarantee

When you purchase a new item you’re usually covered by a manufacturer’s warranty/guarantee, but what about the work done by your plumber? Is that under guarantee? The last thing you want is to have to pay multiple times for a service if it isn’t done properly the first time.

Transparency

Make sure that your plumber is being upfront and transparent about the fees associated with their service. It’s also important that they’re open and honest about what they’re doing. They should be confirming everything with you before they go ahead and start the job.

Local

Choosing someone who’s local will ensure that your job gets done quickly and efficiently.

Professional Online Presence

In this day and age, a professional online presence is a biggie. Think about this… if they’re not willing to invest in their business, should you be investing in their services?

Customer Service

Upon first contact, what sort of service did you receive? Did they seem professional, honest and ready to take on your job or did they seem sloppy and unprofessional?

 

Lastly, we recommend getting at least three quotes before settling on a plumber that you think is right for you. Remember that the best plumber for a job isn’t always the cheapest one…
