One of the biggest investments a family makes is their home. Since your home is such a large investment, finding the right plumber is vitally important to the health of your home. It is very much like finding the right doctor for yourself. You might want to fix your own leaky faucets or clogged drains. At some point, you will need to hire a professional plumber for bigger issues. How do you find the best one?
One of the best ways to find a reputable plumber is to ask your friends, family and neighbors. They will be more than happy to tell you about their experiences. If you get a good recommendation from someone you trust, you know the plumber worked hard to get that recommendation. Websites that feature user reviews are also a good source of real life recommendations.
If hiring a plumber is not an emergency, you have some time to do research. You can check with the Better Business Bureau and request to see all of the licenses they need for the state you live in.
Once your research is done and you have a list of potential candidates, call the plumbers on your list and get a quote for the specific job you need and ask any relevant questions.
The more questions you ask, the more information you will have to make your decision. In addition to the proper licenses, make sure the plumber you choose has enough insurance to cover anything that goes wrong.
