When it comes to taking care of your home’s plumbing, hiring the
right plumber for the job shouldn’t be taken lightly. Quality plumbers
are capable of repairing some of most important aspects of your home,
such as pipes, toilets, drains, faucets, and water heaters. You must not
make the mistake of hiring a plumber that’s extremely affordable,
since it can result in further damage to your plumbing or more costly
repairs in the future.
The following are tips to hire the right plumber for the job:
Ask to see their state license. Most states require plumbers obtain a license, including Tennessee.
Check for proof of insurance. Plumbers should always be insured or bonded, just in case an accident
or injury occurs.
See how many years they’ve been in business. It’s a great sign if a company or plumber has been in business
of several years, since it typically means they have a proven track record
Check their references. In addition to being in business for a considerable amount of time, plumbers
can and will provide references of past customers and past projects they’ve
accomplished. If they can’t do so, or refuse to do so, then it’s
time to look in another direction.
Ask them for an estimate. A qualified plumber can inspect your situation, understand what it takes
to resolve the issue, and provide an accurate price in order to complete
the job. However, it’s best to acquire at least three estimates,
but don’t go with an estimate that’s substantially lower than
Request a warranty. Plumbers should offer warranties for their work and parts, which typically
lasts for up to one year.
