There is a plethora of options and like everything else in life there are good plumbers and not so good ones, and there’s even the flat out bad plumbing companies that you want to avoid. Instead of naming names and pointing fingers we thought we would bring to your mind a few things that you might not have thought of yet when looking for a good plumber.
- Just because a plumber gives you pricing for a job over the phone doesn’t necessarily mean that they are a good plumber. In a lot of cases a customer doesn’t know the exact issue or the details of the issue and a good plumber might want to be able to see and be in front of the job before giving a quote. The only thing worse than not getting a price over the phone is being told one price and then getting an entirely different price after the plumber has had a chance to actually see the problem and assess all the factors.
- Ask how long they have been in business. Being in business for 30+ years isn’t necessarily a sign of a good plumber but a plumber who has been in business for a few months might and should cause you a little hesitation. There won’t be much of any time for others to have reviewed them online and who knows whether they’ll end up disappearing on you. Unless you have a good recommendation or a personal relationship it’s recommended to only hire a plumber who has been in business for at least a year or two.
For quality and affordable plumbers we encourage you to use the tips above. After doing so we hope you end up giving us a call and allowing us the opportunity to gain your trust and your plumbing business for life.
