Are you experiencing a leaky faucet? You will need to call a plumber.
It may not seem obvious, but hiring the right plumber contractor can be daunting.
Most times, you won’t need a plumber unless you are in an emergency. You might be coming home from work and find water pouring into your door from a leaking pipe.
You need to immediately hire a plumber who will fix the leak.
How can you make sure you hire the right contractor to do the job?
These five questions will help you assess a potential plumber quickly:
1. Are you licensed?
Many homeowners assume that all plumbers are licensed.
To make sure they are qualified for the job, ask if the plumber has been licensed by your local governing body.
Poor workmanship may result in a contractor being unlicensed. Unlicensed plumber contractors may not be up to date with the latest building codes, which could lead to more damage if they aren’t.
As proof of their qualifications, a good plumber should be able to give you a license number.
2. Are you insured?
This is a crucial question in plumbing that can save you money down the road.
If the plumber isn’t insured and an accident occurs during repair, it can cause severe damage. In such cases, you will need to pay for the damage.
Hiring an insured plumber will give you peace of mind in the event of an accident.
3. Are you responsible for cleaning up after the work is done?
It may seem like you are responsible for cleaning up after the plumber has left, but it is not, especially if the problem is a general repair.
It can also be difficult to get rid of old parts, boxes for making new materials, or other types of wastes that have been left behind in your home.
While some plumbing companies include clean-up costs in their quote, others charge an additional fee. It’s better to ask the question before you make a decision.
4. Are you able to offer guarantees or warranties?
A good plumber company will offer a guarantee that their work is guaranteed.
Importantly, guarantee and warranty details should be written to make sure everyone is clear.
This will ensure that any problems caused by plumbing repairs can be repaired for free or at a reduced price.
5. Who is doing the work?
Sometimes, when calling a plumber company, the person who gives you the quote will not be the one actually doing the work. If it is a large job, the plumbing company might send a team of workers.
Always ask who will be doing the job and what their qualifications are. If you don’t get a clear answer, it may be worth looking for other plumbers.
