There’s obviously no shortage of plumbers here in this fine city. Finding the best, most qualified yet still affordable plumbing service can be tough. Here are some things to consider:
Plumbing Jobs Can Be Tricky
Unless you’re dealing with a standard installation or maintenance job, it’s not easy for a plumber to give an accurate price quote over the phone. Without actually seeing what’s involved in a repair job first-hand, it’s too hard to tell what the charges will be.
A drain clog is a good example. The clog may be very near the drain and easy to reach or it could be the result of hard-water scale buildup or even a tree root impinging on a sewer line. Each of these require different solutions and will vary in cost.
If a plumber you’re considering is quick to give a price quote over the phone for a job he hasn’t seen, this may be a red flag.
Choose a Quality Plumbing Service
You can ask friends or neighbors for a plumber recommendation or ask a quality service provider who’s previously done work for you. Chances are he may know a good plumber.
- Check any referrals you get online for the company’s background and time in business and then read some reviews.
- Check out their BBB rating.
- Make sure they’re fully licensed for the type of work you require.
- Confirm that they have the necessary insurance coverage to protect both you and your neighbors’ properties.
