5 Tips for Choosing The Right Plumbing Company

Posted on: Sep 23, 2015

Hiring a plumbing company is an important decision that you shouldn’t take lightly. Hiring the wrong plumber can result in costly, unforeseen repairs.

One of the best ways to find a great plumbing company is to check with friends, neighbors, or work colleagues for references. They may have had good or bad experiences with local plumbing companies and will offer invaluable advice or even recommend a company. Alternatively, head to your local building contractor and ask them to recommend two or three companies. Thereafter, conduct your own research and make an informed decision.

If the two options listed above don’t work, head to the internet. You’ll definitely find a reputable and reliable plumbing company there. To help you make the right choice, here are five factors to consider;

1. Insurance

What happens in case a contractor breaks your window in the process of fixing your plumbing? What if you (the homeowner), your loved one, or visitor is injured by one of the plumber’s tools? This is why you should only choose insured plumbers. Insurance will protect both you and the plumber in case of an accident or injury.

2. Warranty

If a plumbing company has complete confidence in their work, they will back up such work with a solid warranty. Most warranties cover the plumber’s work for one or two years. If the company is reluctant to provide a warranty, then move on.

3. Experience

Most great plumbing companies usually have plumbers with several years of experience in the industry. This kind of experience is important because it helps the plumber to solve even the most complex issues.

4. Pricing

See if the company offers a good price for the project in question. By now you must have learned that you should never compromise quality just because you’re getting a lower price. So, shop around, compare prices and determine the company that promises the greatest value.

5. Consumer ratings and reviews

There are several websites that exist primarily to review and rate contractors, including plumbing companies. The best of the lot is probably Yellow Pages where users go to rate and leave reviews about past clients. The other one is Angie’s List.
