Need a reliable plumber?

North Shore PlumberAfter a hard day of work, no one wants to come home to an overflowing toilet, a busted pipe or water flowing down the hall. But it happens. Parts wear out, clogs happen and breaks occur. However, it isn’t enough to grab a wrench and go to work, unless, of course, you have the knowledge to do so. Instead, that’s when you need the services of a good plumber. How do you find the right plumber in the North Shore for your needs? Here’s what to do.

Research: At one time or another, everyone needs the services of the plumber. If you don’t know which plumber to use, consult friends and family. Ask for recommendations. Go online to find plumbers in the area. From all you’ve learned, make a short list. Check out websites and read online reviews about these companies. This helps narrow down choices. 

Check and Ask: Look for a plumbing company that has been in business for a while and not just starting out. Look for a company that has become a valued member of the community and holds a good reputation within their service area. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. While you can glean much information from a website, follow up with a phone call. Look for a plumbing company with staff that is friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating to your time and schedule. 

Credentials: A plumber needs more than tools to go into business. Check ads, websites or ask in a phone call about the company. Make sure the plumbing service you choose is insured, bonded and properly licensed. You’ll also want to check work experience as well as the training and expertise of the plumbers hired.

Cost: The right plumber will be willing to provide an estimate and explain what needs to be done. Do check prices and look for a plumbing company that isn’t charging a great deal more than other plumbers in the area. Check what guarantees are offered.

Respect: The right plumber will show up on time and treat you and your property with respect. The right plumber will do the work as agreed and do it correctly the first time.
