Having your plumbing fixed or installed is an important task, and it shouldn’t just be assigned to someone unqualified and unreliable. Otherwise, you’re risking having the plumbing installation or repair job needing premature fixing (again!).
So, you have to be extra careful in selecting the plumber who would work for you. If not, you could be wasting your time and money.
To find the perfect plumber, these are some of the things you should look for:
Professional Working Experience
Experience is very valuable in almost every industry – and plumbing industry is no exception. Choose an experienced plumber over a rookie to make sure that the work will be completed effectively on or before deadline. Also, if the part of your home the plumber will be working on is particularly unique, like a ultra-modern type of toilet, ask the plumber first if they have specific experience working with that kind of toilet.
List of References
The key word here is ‘list’. For your prospective plumber to be counted as someone who has a solid working experience, they should have worked with more than just one client in the past. And, these clients should be recent ones, not ones they have worked for five years ago. Call these past clients and ask about the working style and etiquette of the plumber.
License, Insurance, Bonding, and Work Warranty
The plumber you want to choose should be fully licensed to prove that they have completed necessary training prior to working with you. They should be insured and bonded, too, so you can have peace of mind that you won’t have to pay for damages in case of unseen incidents such as the plumber getting injured while working in your house or parts of your property being damaged during the job. Warranty is equally important especially for times where the plumber’s completed work needs to be re-done.
