Choose a plumber with a strong reputation
Doing a simple background check on a plumbing company is as easy as ever with online review websites like Yelp. You may think of Yelp as a good place to find your next restaurant to try out, but it can also be a great way to check the reputation of the plumbers you’re considering using. Choosing a company with positive reviews and a strong approval rating like Performance Plumbing gives you the peace of mind that comes with knowing customers in the past had good experiences with the company. Of course, choosing a company with a low approval rating from customers is generally a sign that their past performance may not be up to par with your expectations.
Only go with a licensed plumber
You probably wouldn’t want to choose an auto mechanic who didn’t have the proper training and certification necessary to perform repair work on your car, and choosing a good plumber is no different. You may not realize it, but the overall value of your property is directly impacted by the quality of your plumbing system. Leaks and flooding can lead to extensive property damage, so it’s important to avoid shoddy work from low-quality workmanship. Choosing a certified plumbing expert like Performance Plumbing guarantees a certain level of professionalism and proficiency around the occupation of plumbing that other freelancers aren’t able to guarantee.
Check to see if they have experience with plumbing pipe installation
Of course almost every licensed, experienced plumber has performed plumbing pipe installation jobs in the past, but it’s still worth asking to be sure. This is a good opportunity to also see exactly how many years of experience the plumber has, and if they’ve done a lot of installation jobs in the past. Even a fully licensed plumber that’s a bit newer to the job may not have as much experience as you’d like to feel comfortable about choosing them.
Only choose plumbers who can provide an estimate up front
The plumber may need to go to your property in person, but whether it’s in person or over the phone, the plumber you choose for your pipe installation job should be willing to give you a full estimate of the costs before the job begins. The quote should give you an accurate estimate of the costs for parts and labor for the job, and a plumber who refuses to give an estimate may not know exactly what needs to go into the job.
