There will come a time when the pipes in your home will develop a problem that could be over your head. Hiring a licensed plumber is your best bet to resolving the issue. There’s no better time to start looking for a plumber than now, when you don’t have this problem.
You need a plumber you can trust so the best thing to do is find some other folks who can vouch for a plumber’s reliability. Perhaps someone else on your street has had a similar problem and can give you the name and number of whoever they trusted to do the job. If you know or have worked with any contractors, they will definitely have a number or two to call. The next person to ask could be your real estate agent. People in the business of selling homes will also have friends in the business of improving them.
The phone book is another quick way to find listings for plumbers in your area. The same goes for the Internet where you’ll often find directories that include customer reviews for each business. In these cases you’ll have to settle for the past experience of strangers to help you choose the right plumber.
You should have a few questions in mind when you do make contact with a prospective plumber. First of all: Are they licensed? A reliable plumber should have no problem telling you their license number and what trade associations or unions they’re affiliated with. If you still haven’t heard any reviews, don’t be afraid to ask them for references.
Finally, ask the plumber for a price quote that includes any charges besides the hourly rate that may come with their service. Keep in mind that it’s harder to make an estimate if the damage isn’t immediately viewable, such as it’s behind a wall or under the floor, so the plumber may only be able to give you a range of prices. They should also be quick to guarantee their service to assure you that they’d come back to repair any mistakes at no extra cost.
