Things To Look For When Hiring A Plumber

Whether you’re looking for someone to help you install a new sink, or have a few leaky pipes causing issues, finding the right plumber to take on the job can feel like a challenge — but it doesn’t have to.

Are you looking for a plumber in your area, but aren’t sure where to start? Don’t panic. We’re here to help.

Here’s everything you need to know about what to look for when hiring a plumber and how to find a reliable one in your area.

One of the best ways to figure out whether or not a plumber is worth their rates is by checking to see what other people who used their service have to say.
Thanks to the internet, finding reliable customer reviews is easier than ever before.
Checking the reviews of plumbing companies in your area is a fantastic way to sift out any unreliable businesses and start compiling a list of potential hires.
Once you have a list of well-reviewed plumbers, you can do a little more digging to figure out which company is best for you.
Does your plumber charge by the hour, or do they have fixed rates for specific services?
Before hiring a plumber, you should always make a point to ask how they determine their rates.
You should also ask about potential financing options before deciding which company to hire as well. Complex or time-consuming jobs can get pretty expensive. So, you may want to consider looking for a plumber that has financing options already in place.
Make Sure They’re Licensed, Bonded, and Insured.
Before hiring a plumber, make a point to ask whether or not they are licensed, bonded, and insured. Accidents happen, and asking this question can help protect you and your property.
A reliable plumber will have no issue confirming this, and may even be able to produce some proof on command.

Do you have proof of liability and workers’ compensation insurance?
The PHCC also recommends reviewing the plumber’s proof of liability and workers’ compensation insurance. This ensures that you will not be held liable for any accidents on your property.

If you hire an unlicensed plumbing contractor and they slip and fall in the water from the leak, you’re the one paying for the medical expenses – and the plumbing repair.
