4 Factors to Use When You Pre-Select Your Plumbing Service
Most of us are not all that proactive about emergency services. For example, home and property owners usually wait to pick up a phone and call a plumbing service until it is absolutely essential. In other words, they might choose a service provider only at the moment a disaster strikes, and that sort of pressure never leads to the best choice possible. To overcome that particular issue, we offer four factors to use as you pre-select your plumbing service provider.
Pre-Screen and Gain Peace of Mind
As the Better Business Bureau has said, “Selecting the right plumbing company can take the stress and worry out of your repair needs, whether they are large or small.” Pre-screening the right plumbing service lets you have their contact information on hand whenever you need it, and without any worries that you might have rushed to choose and selected a less reputable provider.
How do you pre-screen and find the right service? Let’s take a minute and look at the four factors:
Licensing and insurance – It should go without saying that all plumbers must be properly and fully licensed for the work they do, plus you want them to have the right level of insurance (to protect themselves and your property if possible). You have every right to ask for evidence of proper licensing and insurance, and if they hedge on this or balk at the question, look elsewhere.
Diversity – When looking for the right provider, you want to see that they have experience (at least a few years of experience) with a wide array of issues. Should you ever get an answer of “general plumbing” work, you may want to look elsewhere. A reputable and reliable firm is very specific and will explain that they do plumbing work as diverse as sinks, toilets and baths, but also specify the areas of the home or property, including kitchens, baths and so on. They should also handle drains, sewers and more.
Residential and commercial – It is best to find a firm able to do commercial and residential services as this proves their level of skill and expertise.
Emergency – Any plumbing service unavailable at a time of emergency is not one you want to load into your contacts list!
