Whether it’s installing a new bathroom or fixing a broken shower, it’s important to hire a Greenwood professional plumber who is going to offer a quality service.
Steps to Choose a good plumber:
1.) Check to see if they have plumbing qualifications
2.) Get two or more references.
3.) Ask how long they have been in business.
4.) Get at least one other bid for the job to make sure they are not ripping you off.
5.) Find a plumber that will give you pricing for small jobs over the phone.
6.) Get flat rate estimates so you know the total you will pay beforehand.
The best place to start asking about plumbers is your family and friends. Other good sources of referrals include contractors, estate agents and your local plumbing suppliers. Your local council may even be able to provide a list of recommended plumbers who are familiar with the codes in your area. When asking for referrals, be sure to check the type of job the plumber was called in to accomplish. Also, determine if the plumber specializes in residential or commercial work.
Some good questions to ask:
Were you happy with the quality provided by the plumber contractor?
Everybody has their own ideas of quality, so you should take a look at their house and judge for yourself.
Were they courteous and polite?
This is a very important consideration. The entire experience, from beginning to end, needs to be as stress free as possible. Plus if the house plumber enjoys their job, the quality and attention to details will be better. The customers attitude can and will affect the entire paint job. Hopefully this will be the first question you ask. If the answer to this question is “no” then do not go any further, you don’t want to work with that person.
Is the warranty included?
If a warranty was included find out if it has a reasonable amount of time before expiring, 3 years is enough, and if it has any value. Simply stating a warranty isn’t enough. Get it in writing and understand its limitations! A good plumber is happy to stand behind his warranty. Good plumbers use quality materials and know their level of expertise. If a plumber will not offer a warranty this is a problem our my mind.
