Hiring a Plumber – Are You Making the Right Choice?
Hiring a plumber for your home repair needs is nothing to take lightly. Anytime you hire a so-called “pro” and allow them to come into your home you are taking a bit of a gamble. If you have never worked with this person before you have no real idea of how professional they are, how good their workmanship is or if they are worth the price they quoted you. Hopefully, these tips can help reduce your risk of making a big mistake.
Top Tips for Hiring a Pro
Before you take a gamble and let anyone in your home for your plumbing repairs, consider some of these tips to get you on the right track.
Check that license – In most states, including Washington, a professional plumber must be licensed. So for a Snohomish plumber to work on your home there is no excuse for them to not be currently licensed.
Insurance – Too many “pros” in the business claim that without the added costs of having a license and insurance they can offer you a discounted rate. It is never worth saving a few dollars to let someone work on your home that does not have proof of a license and insurance.
Warranty – A true pro should stand behind his or her work. At Apollo Plumbing we guarantee 100% satisfaction on the quality of the work – and the same should go for any industry expert.
References – Not only should you be able to get some feedback from previously satisfied customers but find out about other credentials. For instance here at Apollo Plumbing we have an A+ BBB rating, are a member of the Washington State Certified Plumbers, have an Angie’s List A Rating and more.
Pricing – This isn’t always about getting the lowest bid because a bid that is too low could also be a red flag for inferior work or parts. Get your three estimates and then remember that you get what you pay for. Even if one company is slightly higher but their ratings are all A+ then it is worth the excellent service.
