QUESTIONS TO ASK A PLUMBING CONTRACTOR

home

You have many things to consider before settling on any plumbing contractor. But above anything else, you should ask relevant questions to ensure you make the right choice. See further information here.

ARE YOU LICENSED? 

The first question you should ask any plumber is: are you licensed? Being licensed proves that your plumber is professional enough to complete any plumbing task you throw at them. Working plumbers with enough experience must perform government testing that certifies them as county, regional, or state plumbing contractors. Learn more about Factors Influencing Costs of Plumbing Services.

WHAT ARE YOUR CREDENTIALS AND REFERENCES? 

A good plumber has plenty of experience. Any plumber who doesn’t have at least three to five quality references from clients has probably not had enough experience to take on specific plumbing tasks reputably. Always check references out personally before getting any bids or signing any contracts.

WHAT ARE YOUR SERVICE FEES? 

Service fees can be accrued when a plumber visits your job for an estimate. Whether or not they perform the tasks and complete the job, many plumbers will charge a service fee just to show up at your house. This service fee is non-negotiable in most cases, so always ask what your plumbers will charge before you have them visit your home to ensure you don’t get stuck with hidden costs and fees you weren’t expecting.
