Finding the right plumber for anything from a simple repair to a major remodeling project is hardly a “no-brainer.” The most prudent homeowners take care to find a plumber with a proven track record of competence and dependability.
When looking for a plumber, homeowners should consider:
- Years in operation – Like any other service industry, it takes time for a professional plumbing company to build a positive reputation in the community. Over time, the best companies will have enormous success while those that offer subpar service will go out of business. A homeowner should choose a professional plumbing company that has five or more years of experience.
- Range of experience – The average DIYer usually can handle a leaky faucet or a clogged toilet. More difficult is the installation of a dishwasher or garbage disposal; and when it comes to cleaning a drain line or installing plumbing, only a licensed, bonded and certified plumbing company should be used.
- Company references – The internet has made it easier to find a reputable plumbing company. Most, if not all, professional plumbing companies maintain a well-managed database of previous clients. A homeowner can view these references to get a better idea of the plumbing company's competence and customer service.
- Emergency service – Plumbing emergencies don't arrive at particularly convenient times. The best plumbing companies develop a process to handle a broken pipe or other plumbing emergency on a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week basis. They also have the resources and people to respond to an emergency in a timely fashion.
