When it comes to fixing a plumbing issue or planning a plumbing project for a property, we find that many folks are unsure about how to choose the right San Francisco plumber for their job. To help you find the perfect San Francisco plumber for your needs, we’ve put together this quick guide of simply, easy-to-understand tips to help you make the right choice.

Remember, if you need help fast or simply have questions that need to be answered, call us at (650) 583-3311 and we’ll send over a friendly, experienced plumber as quickly as we can.

#1 – Reputation is Everything
When it comes to plumbing – like many service industries – reputation is everything. We strongly recommend you only choose a plumber like Performance Plumbing, who has a strong reputation on Yelp or other review sites.

In our experience, strong positive reviews from customers and a high satisfaction rating typically indicate that the plumber is dedicated to keeping customers happy to fulfilling their needs in a timely, professional manner.

A poor reputation for a plumber may indicate that the plumber isn’t serious about customer satisfaction, and the quality of the job may end up failing to meet your expectations as the customer. Don’t risk it – pick a plumber with a positive reputation to help ensure things don’t go wrong on your plumbing job.

#2 – Experience in the San Francisco Area
The San Francisco Bay Area is historic, and many buildings are old or have very unique plumbing situations – especially in the city of San Francisco itself.

Make sure you choose a plumbing company like Performance Plumbing – we’ve found that our many years of experience in San Francisco have really given us an advantage in helping us be prepared to handle the many types of plumbing configurations that exist in this unique location.

If you pick a plumber with less experience, or experience mostly outside of San Francisco, they may not be as quick to understand and resolve your plumbing issues, or correctly implement your plumbing improvement project.

#3 – Performance Under Pressure Matters
Whether or not you need emergency plumbing services, you should look for a plumber who offers 24-hour emergency plumbing services. At Performance Plumbing, we believe that passion for the profession is a highly underrated area to take note of. A dedicated plumbing professional like Performance Plumbing offers 24-hour emergency plumbing services because we really care about our neighbors from a community standpoint. Probably the most fulfilling part of our job is making sure peoples’ plumbing problems are resolved quickly and thoroughly, so they can have peace of mind and not feel stressed out during a daunting situation. We like to step into high-pressure situations and go to work right away to get things resolved, and we believe plumbers who avoid high-pressure situations aren’t preparing themselves enough to work quickly while still at a high level of quality.

#4 – Friendly Professionalism
When we say friendly professionalism here, we’re talking about a couple of things. First of all, having a friendly plumber can go a long way to making the job as stress-free as possible, whether it’s in your home or at the office. Second, professionalism refers to the ability to get the job done according to professional plumbing standards, so make sure you choose a plumber who is fully licensed specifically in plumbing, like Performance Plumbing. Being friendly or having licenses alone aren’t a guarantee of good service, but having both can make a big difference in the plumber you choose.
