Need a plumber?
If you are having some serious problems with the plumbing in your house, or if you are a brand new homeowner who just wants to make sure things are in working order, you are going to want to hire a plumber, preferably a good one. With things as serious as this, do not try to attempt your own do-it-yourself projects. Plumbing is a crucial part f the inner workings of a house. The last thing you want to do is leave yourself stranded without water and a working toilet. So when you’re on the search for that perfect plumber, just keep a few things in mind.
For one, make sure you actually have a licensed and insured professional. Don’t use your neighbor’s brother’s wife’s uncle just because he said he tightened up a leaky faucet in their home once. You can easily go online and look up reviews on quite a few reliable websites with honest, real people that can give you perspective on what you could be paying for. Get referrals from friends, but check them out first to make sure they know what they’re doing. You might also want to ask another professional you have used for a different project (kitchen remodeling, electrician, etc.) if they have anyone they can recommend.
Once you think you might have found a candidate, ask them how long they’ve been in business for, what their guarantee is on the work they do, and how much they’ll charge for a certain task to be done. It might seem to be convenient for a plumber to give a price over the phone, but you both don’t really know what the full situation is until he comes to look at the damage. You could end up paying more than he has quoted, leading to some confusion and tension.
Keep all of these things in mind when you consider which plumber you’d like to use for your next emergency/maintenance call. Remember: You could be paying a lot for a less-than-mediocre job if you don’t ask the right questions.
