All too often you hear about a family member or friend who had a terrible experience with a major plumbing problem. Maybe they hired a Plumber and this “expert” did not do a good job. Or maybe they went the do it yourself route and that turned out to be the wrong way to go. Usually these failed attempts at fixing major plumbing problems leave the homeowner or renter in a worse spot than they were to begin with. Maybe they ended up having to pay double to get another repair company in to fix the problem exacerbated by the first companies failed attempt to fix the problem. Or maybe the do it yourself approach lead to a major disaster that caused a domino effect of other problems that emptied your bank account trying to fix. Either way, this is not the situation you want to find yourself in.
When a problem like this arises in your life (and it inevitably will, especially if you own your own home) it is important to have the contact information for a trusted and reliable Plumber. You do not just want any plumber off the internet or found under “P” in the yellow pages. You want someone you can trust. You want to hire a Plumber that can assist you from major problems down to simple things like a clogged trap or no water pressure. You want to make sure that the plumber you hire is not only available to help in a timely fashion (ie. they can come to you whenever your emergency strikes) but you also want one that is punctual. There is nothing worse than spending an entire day or weekend waiting for a service company to come help you with your issue. Make sure the plumber that you choose is punctual and timely. You also want to be sure that they deliver quality work. What is the point of hiring a “professional” if they deliver the same quality of work that any stranger off of the street could do. You will just have to go back and fix their imperfect work later on down the road. So call the company’s references. Speak to people who have had work done by this Plumber in the past. What were their biggest problems? What was the thing they were most happy about when using the Plumber you are considering hiring? Other people’s experiences are extremely helpful when deciding upon a plumber. Also, do a bit of your own research online. Read any and every review you can find about the specific Plumber you are considering hiring to fix your issue. Though it should not be your one and only means of research, the internet is a valuable tool to give you insight into the type of plumbing company you are considering welcoming into your home. So do some leg work in the beginning and assure that you have a quality Plumber prepared and ready to go for when disaster strikes you and your family in your home.
