Experiencing plumbing issues in a home or commercial property can be extremely frustrating and inconvenient, so it’s important to have a plumber who’s professional, reliable, and skilled. With so many plumbers in the field, finding the right plumber fit for you and your plumbing needs can be challenging. Listed below are four questions to ask when choosing a plumber for your residential or commercial property.
Are You a Licensed Plumber?
This is one of the first questions you should ask your next plumber, especially considering that there are situations where plumbers operate without a license. When a plumber is licensed, it essentially means that they’re registered within a governing body, whether on a local or state level, as a plumbing contractor who is knowledgeable and able to complete designated projects and tasks promptly within regulations and guidelines.
Do You Have a Specialty?
Like most professions, plumbers often specialize in certain types of work such as installations, repairs, replacements, maintenance, and more. When choosing a plumber for your commercial or residential property, it’s essential to choose a plumber that can accommodate your needs, whether it’s a plumbing installation, repair, or replacement.
Do You Have Any References or Reviews?
Asking about references and reviews is an informative process that can help you narrow down your list of potential plumbers. A good plumber typically has plenty of references and reviews from previous customers. References and reviews provide an overview of a plumber’s reputation, showing how a plumber operates and treats its customers. References and reviews also allow you to see previous projects from other clients showing you what a plumber specializes in and the quality of work.
How Long Have You Been in Business?
Although the number of years a business has been around doesn’t determine their level of experience, typically, when a business has been operating for years, they’re more efficient and professional and have great customer service, more experience, references, and reviews. It’s important that you choose a plumber that’s established and has years of experience to ensure that you’re plumbing needs are met promptly and professionally with quality results.
