Before you hire a plumber for a routine job like fixing a leaky pipe or installing a garbage disposal or toilet, you want to do the work of finding the best plumbing company in your area. The best companies will be able to perform emergency and routine services as well as do them at fair prices.
It seems like it is easy to simply look online for these companies. But, you need to find out a little more before you call a particular company to book them for a job. Here are some tips to help you find the best plumbers in your town.
Make sure the company is licensed. Usually, a company will display their licensing information on their website. They should also be fully insured but you may need to call them to find this information out.
See what other customers have to say about them. Read reviews. Look for the services that have the most balanced number of reviews. Companies that have too many one-star reviews or too many five-star reviews should be looked into more.
Find out how long a company has been doing business. The best will often stay around for years. Plumbers that do not do a good job for their customers will often close up in a year or so. Make sure the plumber you choose has a physical address and not just a PO box.
While most legitimate plumbing services will not be able to give you a quote for service without going to your house to see what the issue is, most can give you an idea of what a job will cost. Call three companies over the phone. Listen to how they handle your questions and concerns.
They should be able to give you their hourly rate which you can then compare with others to find the company you want to work with. If they offer emergency services, find out how much extra you can expect to pay in the event of an emergency. Ask what sort of guarantee they offer customers for the work they do. Will they return to redo a job if there are problems and do so at no extra charge?
Once you take these simple steps you will be more likely to find a local plumbing company that is going to do the best job for you. They will also do it for a good price and leave you highly satisfied.
