    How to Find the Best Plumber for The Job

    Would you trust an un-licensed doctor with treating your family? He may be a awesome person — and smart too. But how can you be sure he has the knowledge to give you the treatment that you need? That’s why you look for licenses, insurance and credentials.

    A serious, unexpected, and often dangerous situation requiring immediate action. By definition, it is difficult to plan for an emergency.

    The first thing to cross a homeowners mind when they have an emergency repair is generally: “How much is this going to cost me?”

    What happens when we combine a lack of forethought with an emergency situation is that we throw out everything that is hard-wired into us as planners and we resort to the important, but often risky, response of: “I have to find the cheapest way possible to fix this right now!”

    When you’re dealing with a plumbing emergency, you can’t afford a cheap fix. A cheap fix today often results in an expensive repair tomorrow. Most people can’t afford to go with the cheapest plumber.

    Tips for Finding the Best Plumber

    What should you look for in a plumber to take care of your emergency? Here’s a few rules of thumb to help determine your best option:

    1. Pay attention to who you talk with when you call to schedule a plumber to come to your home. Are you talking with an answering machine or does the person on the other end of the line care about you and genuinely want to help fix your problem? You can tell a lot about a company by how they answer the phone.

    2. Try to find a plumber with 24 hour emergency service. If the problem arises again, it is good to know that you will be able to get someone out to look at it again. No one wants to wait the weekend without hot water or heat.

    3. Check online reviews. You’re probably not the first person in town to need a plumber. Rely on Angie’s List and other websites that have a bank of real reviews written by people in your community.

    4. Ask if the technician coming to your home is drug-tested and background-checked. Your home and your family are your priority. A company that invests significant dollars making sure that employees are trustworthy and safe in your home tells you that your home and family are a priority to them, too.

    There are honest, reputable, trained, trustworthy plumbing companies out there. Knowing what is important to you before you invite someone into your home is essential, especially in an emergency. If you know what you want in a plumber before you pick up the phone, you don’t have to worry about being bound by the cheapest option.
