Questions You Should Ask A Plumber Before Hiring One
There are certain questions you should ask a plumber before hiring one in order to ensure that the job will get done properly. Details about several important questions to ask are below.
Inquire about the response time. Most plumbing emergencies do not happen during normal business hours. Ask the plumber if he takes emergency calls and if the response time is quick. Also ask about the regular hours of operation.
[Ask if the plumber is licensed.]1 Being licensed is not required, but having a license indicates that the worker is registered with a state or local governing body and his work passes inspection.
Find out what happens if something breaks. [Before you sign a contract you should ask if the work comes with a guarantee or warranty.]1 Get all guarantees in writing.
Ask about payment arrangements. Find out how much you are expected to pay upfront. Do not pay 100% of the cost before the job starts because you may not be satisfied with the service.
Ask about who will complete your job. Will the plumber giving you the quote be the one to do the job? Also ask about the worker’s credentials. Only hire someone who is experienced and licensed.
Ask about who cleans up the mess after a job is completed and find out if it is included as part of the price quote. Some plumbers do not cleanup after they are finished and the burden is on you.
Find out if the estimate total is a flat rate. You need to know in advance whether the amount will change because of labor costs. You should know what you are getting before you sign a contract.
You will be able to make an informed decision if you know the answers to the questions listed above before you contract with a plumber. **Are you looking for a home plumber in the Montgomery area? Call Cole Plumbing at (334) 279-8919) and get started today!
