When it comes to boosting the value of your home from a personal and monetary perspective, finding a good Milpitas home improvement plumber can make a huge difference.

If you have questions as you read on, or simply need some additional help, don’t hesitate to call or email us — we’re always happy to help.
Carefully Check Over Customer Reviews
The last thing you want to do is put your Milpitas home at risk by hiring a bad home improvement plumber. Even if bad plumbing work isn’t immediately obvious after the job is done, weaknesses can be exposed over time as your plumbing work is used more and more. As we all know, even the smallest leak can build into a moldy nightmare and the smallest cracks can grow into big trouble.
To weed out the bad and focus on the good, scour customer review websites like Yelp and look for both a high overall rating and positive specific comments. If possible, check the comments for home improvement projects, as positive comments for quick fixes might not really reflect how the plumber performs for your project. At Performance Plumbing, we’re proud to have stellar reviews from our happy customers, so we think you shouldn’t settle for anything less.
Look for Experience
In plumbing, experience matters — but it matters even more for home improvement projects. Home improvement projects are more complex, more involved jobs that can span far more days than a basic plumbing fix. Make sure the plumber you choose has several years of experience, like the team we’ve built at Performance Plumbing.
Check for Previous Experience Related to Your Specific Home Improvement Needs
Experience matters, and experience in home improvement plumbing projects matters, but the most useful aspect of experience to check is whether or not the plumber did projects similar to your specific project in the past. This might not always be possible, but if the plumber can describe how they successfully completed a similar project in the past, that highly relevant experience might come in handy as they’ve already experienced and overcome challenges that can arise in such a project.
Check for a Professional Plumbing License
It may sound like just covering the basics, but checking for a professional plumbing license is important. At Performance Plumbing, we’re proud to have a full plumbing license because it helps guarantee to our customers that we’re professional plumbers who focus on plumbing specifically and exclusively. Other handymen, freelancers or temporary laborers do not come with that guarantee of professional dedication and training.
Treat it Like a Job Interview
A home improvement plumbing project is serious work, so you should treat the hiring process as seriously as you would a new team member at your workplace. We all know what it’s like when a team hires the wrong person for a job, so doing everything you can to prevent that will help ensure your project is a success and without major delays.
