If you are having trouble with any leakage, the first instinct that you might have is to fix the issue. When the time comes to fixing your homes plumbing issues, it is important to make sure that you are choosing the right plumber. Choosing the right plumber can be tricky, and you need to know what you should look for in a plumber.
Here are some tips for choosing the right plumber:
Does the plumber have a license?
In Tennessee a plumber must have a valid license to perform any work. Without a license there is no way to prove the expertise of the plumber. If you want the job done correctly and up to standards, it is important to make sure you hire someone who is knowledgeable and has proven their skill.
Do they have proper insurance?
On top of having their license, you are going to want to make sure that the plumber you choose is properly insured. Your plumber having the right insurance is important because it protects you and your plumber in case there are any accidents that occur during the job. You may also ask the plumbing company if they are providing their plumbers any form of insurance. They should be insured for general liability and workman’s compensation.
Do you know and understand their pricing?
It is not uncommon to not be sure how much plumbing services are supposed to cost. On average, a licensed plumber will typically charge anywhere from $45 to $150, and this does not include the costs for any of the repairs. Reputable plumbing companies can give you a general idea of how much plumbing repairs cost, and getting these quotes can help narrow down your plumber search. At FiveStar, we always give you a quote before we begin any work. We believe it’s fair for you to understand the cost you’ll incur with any repair or new job.
How long have they been in the industry?
It is always smart to consider the length of time a plumber has been in service. Like anything, it’s good to know that your plumber has a lot of experience in their job. Although every company and plumber has to start from somewhere, it is always a good choice to work with an experienced plumber or an experienced company that only hires the best employees.
Do they offer any warranties?
One of the more important things is to make sure that they have a warranty. Reputable plumber will have some warranties that last up to one year. When the company has this in place, clients can always contact their plumbers if there are any complications after the job has been completed. A good company will offer this to ensure the quality of their work and build a relationship with you.
