1. Gather references.
Ask friends, family members, or co-workers if they have any local plumbing companies that they’d recommend. When it comes to getting information, you can’t beat firsthand experience. So while, “Well, my friend’s brother’s uncle is a plumber…” may work out, advice from people who have actually used the plumber carries a bit more weight.
2. Narrow down your list of potential plumbers.
From your references and perhaps some research of your own, make a list of plumbers who have good reputations in your area. From there, we recommend checking out their websites and giving each plumbing company a call. Get a feel for their professionalism, credentials, and work history. If any plumber doesn’t get back to you or doesn’t offer the services you need, cross ‘em off the list.
3. Pay attention to credentials.
Leaky pipes or a clogged drain can cause huge damage to your home. You want to make sure your plumbing repair or water softener installation is done right the first time. Therefore, your best bet may be to hire a professional plumber who is licensed and insured.
4. Interview at least three plumbers.
If your plumbing concern isn’t an emergency, then we recommend that you take the time to interview at least three plumbers personally. Be sure to get a consultation and written quote, and take time to ask all your questions. A good plumber will take the time to answer your questions and help you explore solutions to your plumbing concerns.
5. Don’t hire until you’re certain.
Again, if you have the luxury of time and water isn’t spewing from your kitchen pipes, take your time deciding who to hire. You want to feel comfortable with who is in your home. Plus, you want to make sure you choose a plumber who will do good but affordable work.
