When looking for help with plumbing problems or plumbing projects, it’s important for everyone to make sure they have a solid process for evaluating which of the Santa Clara plumbing companies to work with. To help you make sure you project is a success, we’ve put together this quick guide to choosing Santa Clara plumbing companies so you’ll know what criteria to make your selection based on.

Reputation matters
First, we highly recommend working with a plumber with a solid reputation.

For plumbing teams, customer feedback is a critical reflection of how successful the plumbing team performed the work needed by the customer.

If a plumbing team has a very weak customer reputation on online platforms like Yelp, chances are that their customers had bad experiences with them in the past, and you may not be comfortable with that level of frequent failure to produce acceptable results.

Instead, look for a company with a strong overall rating and comments from customers that are supportive of the quality of work they received. A strong plumbing team that cares about customers will have these characteristics, as our team at Performance Plumbing is proud to have.

Professional qualifications are proof of commitment
Next, it’s worth ensuring that the plumbing teams you’re considering have a professional license and insurance. While things usually do not go seriously wrong when a capable plumbing team is performing plumbing work, your property is an important investment that should be protected, and any serious plumber will recognize this and have insurance already in place to protect your investment.

Additionally, a professional license can be considered proof that the plumber is serious enough about the professional to provide it and get a professional license, and can be seen as another indication that they are dedicated to their work as a plumber. Some freelancers or handymen who are not primarily focused on plumbing may not bother to get a license.

Match plumbing skills to your needs
When evaluating plumbing companies, don’t be afraid to ask about their experience and past plumbing projects that they’ve done. A good plumber should be able to speak clearly and professionally about their past projects, and explain how each worked as they were being completed.

Think about your specific needs, and what you need to accomplish with your plumbing project. You can ask the plumbing company directly if they’ve done projects like yours before, to confirm that they have experience in the area, and you can ask them for details about the project to make sure they know what they’re talking about.

Estimates should be free of commitments
Finally, it’s important to note that leading plumbing companies like ours at Performance Plumbing will always be willing and happy to provide a free estimate up front before any work is agreed upon, so you can know all of the costs and time involved up front.
