Questions You Should Ask A Plumber Before Hiring One

North Shore PlumberLooking for a plumber? Before hiring any plumber there are some things you will want to ask. We have all of the information that you need to make an informed decision about whether or not to hire a plumber.The first thing that you will want to know is whether or not the plumber offers free estimates. This can be important because if you decide that their price is too high you may still owe them money for just looking at your problem. This also gives you a chance to see the plumber in action, so to speak, as he looks around and examines your problem.

Another important thing to know is if the plumber has the proper license for the work that you need done. Licenses vary from county to county and city to city and may even require multiple licenses in some locations. Always ask to see the license just to make sure that it is valid and up to date.

You will also want to make sure that the plumber you hire is properly insured. This insurance will cover any damages that may result from mistakes that the plumber may make. Without the right coverage you could be stuck hiring someone else to fix what the plumber has done costing you even more money.

Plumbing can make a mess that spills out into other parts of your house. You should find out if the plumber you are thinking of hiring cleans up themselves. This cleaning can be frustrating and difficult after the plumber leaves. Finding a plumber that does their own clean up in important.

Does the plumber guarantee their work? Find out how long their guarantee is good for and exactly what it covers. Some guarantees cover only the work while others cover the parts used during the job. It is important to know exactly what kind of guarantee that you are getting.

How much will it cost and how do you charge. Some plumbers charge by the job while others charge by the hour. This can be an important distinction. Many times they will provide an estimate based on how much long they think it will take and if it goes over they will charge you extra.

Make sure that everything you talk about is included in the contract before you sign it. Are you looking for a home plumber in the North Shore area? Call Tai Irwin Plumbing at 02 9451-1863 and get started today!
