5 Things You Must Find Out when Hiring a Plumber

March 27, 2015

 

1.) Reputation

It’s worth every penny when it comes to hiring the right professional so definitely consider more than just price when you select a plumbing company. Typically companies that have an excellent reputation stand by their word, care about their customers and work hard to maintain that reputation. If you wind up going with a company just because they quote the lowest price, you may end up paying for shoddy work that’s not guaranteed and could wind up causing you more money in the long run.

It’s always best to shop by reading what people say about the company. Research reviews online to gather a general customer perspective of the company. After all, any company can buy ad space.

2.) What’s included?

A lot of times calling around to get a price is simply that. Sometimes people forget to ask what’s all included in the price. When shopping for an expert plumber you will want to select a company that offers full service, especially when purchasing a water heater. When purchasing a water heater there is the water heater price and the installation price. A good water heater installer will quote you something that includes what you really need: the water heater of the correct size and warranty, the installation, and the haul away. The haul away is essential if you don’t want to be stuck with a giant tank you don’t know what to do with.

When speaking with a knowledgeable customer service person over the phone, be sure to ask what’s included in the service. Doing so will help you to select the best plumbing company.

3.) Timeliness

Not only is it very important to hire a company that arrives on time and completes the job as efficient as possible, it’s also important for their services to be same day when it comes to water heater installations. DRF Water Heating Solutions installs same day if you call before 2 pm on weekdays or noon on Saturday. This type of timelines is important, especially when you need hot water or your water heater is leaking all over.

4.) Experience

A lot of times a good indicator of good experience, quality work, and professionalism is how long the company you’re considering has been in business. DRF Water Heating Solutions has been in business for over 10 years. The not so great plumbing companies come and go. Before even going with a company, make sure they’ve been in business for at least 10 years.

5.) Qualifications

Most states require that plumbing work, including the installation of a water heater, be performed completed by a licensed plumber. If you hire an un-licensed plumber or “handyman”, that could be chaos and money that comes out of your wallet. It may not affect you at first, but when it comes time to sell your home, you may wind up in a problematic situation that could have been done right first.
