Check for a plumbing license and insurance

Before you commit to a plumber for your plumbing repairs, the most fundamental aspect to consider is whether or not the plumber is fully licensed and insured.

For a strong plumbing team like ours at Performance Plumbing, accidents are almost unheard of, but we still believe in being prepared for any anomalies simply because of the nature of plumbing and what water damage can do to a property.

A good plumbing team like ours knows how to take all right precautions to avoid such issues and minimize any issues that arise, but you might not get the same level of professional knowledge and execution from an unlicensed plumber.

The bottom line is, there’s no need to risk your plumbing repairs on unlicensed, uninsured workers when there are plenty of well-qualified plumbers with the right credentials like our team at Performance Plumbing.

Check the plumber’s past history

Next you’ll want to make sure any plumbers you’re considering have a clean customer satisfaction track record on Yelp or other review websites. They don’t need to be perfect, but a quick check of their Yelp page will show whether or not they’ve had any serious grievances and how frequently any issues may come up.

At Performance Plumbing, we’re proud of our extremely strong customer evaluations on Yelp, so we suggest you don’t settle for anyone with a less than stellar reputation.

See if they can describe their process and similar previous projects

Do a quick knowledge check to make sure you’re talking to the real deal – ask the plumber if they’re performed similar repairs in the past, and ask about details like their process, how much time it typically takes, and other details.

A questionable plumber may give you questionable answers, but a reliable plumber like our team should typically be able to describe past similar repair work and how the issues were fixed in the past.

Get a free estimate before agreeing to start work

Before any work starts, it’s also important to ask for a no-cost estimate up front. Any plumber who is confident in their abilities and the quality of their work should have no problem with this, and a strong team like ours at Performance Plumbing won’t shy away from such a request.

If you’re ready to get your plumbing issues repaired, give us a call or send us an email and one of our friendly plumbing experts will help you out right away.
