Run a Background Check: Check your potential plumber’s credentials by asking to see their plumbing license. Even if this plumber has a certified plumbing license there are still more questions you have to ask. Ask about insurance. What type of insurance does this plumber carry? Is it full insurance with a reputable company? Speaking of reputations how is this plumber’s reputation? Ask to see a list of references. Call each reference the plumber provides and ask about their work. Online reviews are helpful, but they can also be misleading. Asking real people over the phone about this plumber’s work and pricing will save you time in the long run.
Get More Than One Quote: If you’re worried about the price of a job, ask more than one plumber how much this is going to cost you. Try as hard as possible to get the plumber you’re interested in to offer a fixed rate, rather than an hourly rate. Hourly rates can be misleading and the job might end up costing you a lot more than you were expecting to pay. A good way to get a ballpark pricing idea is to ask the potential plumber to diagnose the problem and quote you the cost of the repair. Then use the internet to research the average price of the problem you have been diagnosed with. Lastly, make sure this potential plumber comes with a money back guarantee in case you are not satisfied when the project is completed.
Don’t Just Research the Plumber, Research the Company: Trusting a new plumber with your leaky sink is probably not a good idea. Companies that have been in business for years and maintain decent ratings are a much safer bet.
