Make Sure You Partner With the Right Plumber
Finding the right plumber to partner with is perhaps the most important aspect of getting your bathroom plumbing needs fulfilled, and is without a doubt the first place to start.

First, we recommend checking consumer review websites like Yelp. A strong plumbing team like ours at Performance Plumbing will have a strong overall rating with specific customer stories that support the plumber. Remember to avoid plumbers with too many negative reviews or too few reviews, as this usually indicates the plumber is either of poor quality or unproven.

Additionally, we strongly recommend choosing a fully licensed plumbing team. At Performance Plumbing, we’re proud to have earned our license as a professional plumbing team, as we believe it underscores our professional dedication to the practice of plumbing. We strongly suggest you stay away from less professional freelancers or contractors who are unlicensed.

Keep in mind that even the smallest plumbing problem like a leak can grow into a huge problem over time, so don’t put your property value and quality of daily life at risk by using unlicensed, untrustworthy help.

If You Need a Quick Fix, Get Quick Service
If you’re simply in need of a quick fix, make sure you choose a plumber who can respond quickly and get the job done effectively and efficiently.

At Performance Plumbing, we’re proud to offer 24-hour emergency service, so if you have a serious plumbing problem that you need fixed immediately, we’re happy to respond and take care of it to get your plumbing fixed up as quickly as possible.

Even if you don’t need 24-hour help at odd hours, knowing that the plumber is able to respond quickly at a moment’s notice is usually a strong indicator that they can act quickly and resolve the problem swiftly.

If You Need Home Improvement Work, Know the Possibilities
If you’re in need of a home improvement project that can take your bathroom to the next level, make sure you know what you want ahead of time.

Look at examples of bathroom improvement projects that other people have done, such as upgrades to showers, tubs, sinks, fixtures, lighting, toilets, heated floors and other aspects. Find photos if possible of examples of what you like, so you can present them to the plumber you partner with to help visually illustrate what you’re looking for.

Make Sure the Plumber Can Provide Examples of Similar Past Work
When you choose your plumber, be sure to ask them to provide examples of similar work in the past, as this usually indicates they’ll be able to perform the same work again. Even better, if they have photos of that past work, you can see exactly what kind of work they do.

That said, many plumbers don’t keep photos of every single project they do, so don’t worry if they don’t have them on hand. As long as they can describe their process and how they would do the project, that’s already a basic indicator that they at least know what they need to do.
