Unfortunately, there are many plumbers out there that charge unreasonable rates and don’t even provide a quality service. They prey on inexperienced homeowners. They promise to get the job done right but what they really do is overcharge you and don’t fix the problem completely. Not sure if your plumber is shady or not? If he exposes any of these signs, chances are he is:

He doesn’t have a positive reputation

We encourage you to check out our previous reviews. We are proud of the service we have provided our customers and work hard to leave every customer completely satisfied. If your plumbing contractor doesn’t have a positive reputation that you can verify, it’s hard to trust their word. Reputation is very important in this business. Trust only those you can verify.

He charges far more than anyone else

Every business charges fees that are based on what they believe their time is worth. And there’s no doubt we all charge different fees. However, if you come across a plumber that seems to charge fees that are well beyond standard rates, you should be cautious. He may claim his services are so much better than anywhere else, but chances are he’s really just a shady character.

He is very rude

We are in the service business. Keeping customers happy in any service business goes beyond getting the job done right. It also requires an ability to treat customers with respect. We have friendly plumbers that know how to treat a customer. We treat you with respect. If your plumber doesn’t, tell him to take a hike.

He doesn’t carry insurance

This is the most obvious sign your plumber isn’t legit. Everyone knows that a licensed contractor must carry the proper insurance. If your plumber can’t prove he’s properly insured, you need to move on and find someone that is. Carrying insurance is extremely important for the contractor and the homeowner.


He isn’t professional

We take great pride in our work. We work diligently to take care of our customers and get the job done right. Our plumbers won’t show up at your place smelling like booze or acting in a belligerent manner. If you’re dealing with a plumber that appears to have come over straight from the bar and is treating you like a burden, it’s time you looked elsewhere for a plumber.

Space Coast Plumbing is committed to providing reliable, cost-efficient plumbing services. We treat all customers the same – with the utmost respect. If your plumber isn’t taking care of you in the manner you deserve, contact us today and we’ll show you what it’s like to do business with a REAL plumbing contractor.
