Before you hire a plumber, you need to ask them questions. There are also questions to ask when they’re performing the work and after they’re done. Knowing the answer to these questions can help you to hire a good plumber and to be informed about what they’re doing and why.
Are You Licensed?
You only want to hire a licensed plumber, so this should be your first question. Plumbers need to be certified by the government. They must pass tests to become a plumber and pass re-certification tests. They’re up to date about building codes and practices.
Are You Insured?
The plumber you hire should be insured. While it doesn’t often happen, plumbers can have an accident or make a big mistake. This could be a big problem if the plumber doesn’t have an insurance policy that includes workers’ compensation insurance.
What Are Your Repair Options?
The plumber will likely provide you with the best solution for your plumbing problem. Find out if there are different ways to fix your plumbing issue and what the cost would be for each. The plumber may have options that better fit within your budget than the best solution possible does.
