Finding the right plumber can be a daunting and difficult task for homeowners all across the country. They’re often stuck between choosing an expert that will get the job done right and trying to keep a few extra dollars in the bank account. So, how can you tell if you’re making the right decision? Here are some questions to ask and things to look for the next time your plumbing system needs some attention:
Do you have a license and is it current? This might be the most important question to ask when looking for a plumber. Unlicensed plumbers are not registered with a governing body at the state or local level and their work may not pass inspection. You can check the licensing board here: https://onlineweb.nclicensing.org/Lookup/LicenseLookup.aspx (Always insert Plumbing Class I to search for companies with a full plumbing license and only entering the first five letters of the company name may help in the search.)
Do you charge an hourly rate or a flat rate? Asking this question can help you prepare for the total cost of the job. It’s always best to know exactly what you’re going to be paying for and how you will be charged so you can plan accordingly. Flat rate pricing means the company can give you the price for the work to be done in writing before beginning, and that price won’t change. With an hourly rate, it’s difficult for companies to give an exact price before work starts.
Is the technician arriving with a warehouse on wheels? Oftentimes, plumbers show up to a job without the necessary parts or tools to complete the project right then and there. When you choose The Good Guys at Three Way Plumbing, we’ll show up with exactly what we’ll need for the entire job which can save you time and money.
Is the work guaranteed in writing before it begins? Or is there a warranty with the manufacturer that can be prorated? You want to be covered if something breaks a few weeks or months down the road, right? That’s why it’s important to ask if the service is covered.
