How to Find a Qualified Plumber

Posted on: July 6th, 2011 by zach

What should I look for in selecting a plumber?

The choice of plumbers can make the difference between a good experience and a disastrous one, so it is important to do your homework. And it is best to make the selection before an emergency occurs. A good way to start is to ask trusted friends and neighbors for local recommendations of plumbers they have liked. In addition, plumbers should be licensed and insured.

Ask whether they provide 24-hour service, and what sort of response is offered in emergency cases. Do they have all of the parts they would typically need on the truck to save a return visit? While you can compare prices, it is not always the best way to make your selection, but do ask what payment methods they accept. It is more important to have a positive feeling after interviewing a plumber or company, as that professional will be working in your home at a particularly stressful time.

Check out their service warranty and confirm that they remove replaced fixtures. Plumbers are great sources of advice, so listen to the voice of experience — the plumber who has been in business for a while, and has solved many problems, most likely offers all kinds of additional services to complete your job.
