What to Look for in a Plumbing Contractor


What to Look for in a Plumbing Contractor

Posted on April 6, 2015 by Melbourne Plumber

There are many plumbers here in Florida. All you have to do to find a random plumber is to pick up the Yellow Pages and make a phone call. However, there are many plumbers out there that just aren’t worth the money. Some will take your money and provide poor service. Not sure what to look for in a plumber? Look for the following characteristics and we guarantee you’ve found yourself a reliable plumber:

Licensed and insured

It’s very important for your plumber to be licensed and insured. Insurance eliminates risk. Should your plumber make a mistake and have an accident, if he isn’t insured, it could be a costly expense…for you. Additionally, being licensed proves the contractor has the skills necessary to perform certain tasks. You have a right to ask for proof of insurance and licensing. Don’t trust a plumber that can’t prove they are properly insured and licensed.

Has a professional demeanor

Imagine dealing with any so-called “professional” that treats you like you’re a second-class citizen. No one wants to deal with that type of business. Look for a plumber that treats you the right way. That means they are friendly, helpful, and willing to explain the cause of your problem. A professional plumber will also willingly provide advice on how to prevent the problem from occurring in the future.

Has an impeccable reputation

Don’t feel bad about looking up your plumber’s reputation. You can check on places such as Angie’s List to get an idea of what past customers have to say about your prospective plumber. You can even ask the plumbing company to prove their credibility. There’s nothing wrong with doing that. If they’re unwilling to prove their reputation, it’s probably a good idea to find someone that isn’t ashamed of their past history.

Charges reasonable rates

A super cheap plumber probably isn’t a reliable plumber. Like any type of service industry, why would a skilled plumber work for ridiculously low wages? However, just because a plumber charges outrageously high fees doesn’t mean they are the best of the best. It could mean they are full of it. You should find a plumber that charges fair rates. A quality plumber can get the job done at a price that is affordable to the customer and fair to the plumber.
