When hiring a plumbing contractor, whether it’s for a basic toilet leak or major pipe installation, you want to make sure that you are hiring someone that is both trusted and reliable. But with so many plumbers out there to choose from, it can be daunting to choose the right plumber to fit your needs. To help you make your decision process a little easier, we’ve listed some of the top tips you need to consider when choosing a plumbing contractor.
The first and most important thing to confirm when looking to hire a plumbing contractor, is whether they are licensed, certified and insured by the state. When hiring a licensed plumber, such as Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric, you can be confident that they have received adequate training and that they understand the International Plumbing Code. Licensed plumbers are also required to follow the rules of the state regulatory board which means that you can rest assured that their work will be of the highest standard.
While there may be some exceptions to this rule, it is generally a good idea to make sure a plumber has been in business for a few years before hiring them. Companies that have been in the business for over 30 years, like Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric, are guaranteed to give you 100% satisfaction!
A reputable plumbing company should have no problem providing you with some references or reviews of their previous work. Companies that have received multiple good reviews by previous clients are highly likely to provide the same standard of quality for you. Fortunately for you, the increasing popularity of the Internet has made it very easy for homeowners to leave reviews and feedback online. So, before you hire your next plumbing contractor, be sure to read some online reviews.
In most cases, licensed plumbers will also carry insurance that protects you if something goes wrong; a luxury that will not be afforded to you when hiring an unlicensed and uninsured contractor.
If your plumber makes a mistake, it is important that they have insurance to cover any additional costs. If they do not have insurance, you will have to pay for the mistake. It’s also a good idea to check if your plumber offers a warranty on their work or the parts they have installed.
While this may seem like an unnecessary point at first, being able to communicate openly with your plumber is essential to getting what you need done right the first time. By hiring a plumbing contractor that is both friendly and trustworthy, you can be sure that they will listen to your concerns and get to the problem in a timely and reliable manner. Build trust with your plumber to ensure that you always have someone to rely on – even when it means making an emergency call during absurd hours of the day.
Plumbing work is difficult and costly if left in the wrong hands, which is why it is so important to find a plumber that suits you and your needs. Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric provides reliable, trusted, and professional workmanship that promises 100% satisfaction every time.
