When it comes to getting your plumbing needs addressed, there are a number of local San Mateo plumbing companies to choose from. However, not all San Mateo plumbing companies are the same, so it’s important that you choose carefully to make sure the job is done right.

To help you make the best choice for your needs, our team of plumbing experts has created this quick guide to point you in the right direction. While you read, remember that you’re always welcome to reach out to us directly if you have specific questions or needs, or need help right away.

First, identify your plumbing needs
Not all companies are equally qualified so solve all plumbing problems, which is why it’s best to first start by identifying your plumbing needs.

For example, if you’re experiencing an urgent plumbing problem like an uncontrollable leak, you will need to find a plumber with 24/7 emergency plumbing services, like our team at Performance Plumbing.

Other types of needs include improvement projects, like sink installations, toilet installations, shower installations, and more. Beyond that, there are still other categories of plumbing needs like sewer line repair and so forth.

Next, find a plumbing company with the right experience
After establishing a clear definition of what needs you’re trying to address from a plumbing perspective, you’ll be able to move onto the next step of finding the right company to help you address your needs.

At Performance Plumbing, we’re a full-service plumbing team that has worked on a wide range of projects in the past and can help you with pretty much every type of project. However, not all teams have this level of full service capability.

Some plumbers specialize in small repairs, and may not have a lot of experience doing other types of projects. Because of this, it’s important to make sure you ask any plumber you’re considering working with whether or not they’ve done similar work in the past.

Make sure you choose a plumbing company with a high approval rating
When evaluating plumbing teams for your project, you can get a head start by doing some homework and checking the evaluations provided by other customers on consumer review websites like Yelp.

Be sure to stick to plumbing teams that have a high overall customer rating, like our team at Performance Plumbing. In addition, any strong plumber should also have strong supporting anecdotes from customers leaving reviews, as our team has.

Look for professional credentials
Even before the age of the gig economy, handymen and freelancers were a common solution used by households for all kinds of work. Unfortunately, these quick sources of labor are often unlicensed and uninsured when it comes to plumbing work that they may also be inexperienced in. It can be a recipe for disaster.

By choosing a plumbing team that is fully licensed and insured, like our team to Performance Plumbing, we believe you’re choosing a less risky path and will probably have a lower chance of running into issues with your project. Should anything unexpected arise, having insurance in place to protect your property is also valuable simply for peace of mind.
