Hiring the Right Plumbing Contractor for Your Arlington Home Renovation ProjectWhether you need a new water heater or bathroom sink and toilet, it is important to hire the right plumbing contractor for your project. If you look at a phone list of local plumbers, you may wonder how to tell which plumbing business will do the job to your satisfaction. Here are some tips for hiring the right plumbing contractor for your Arlington home renovation project.
Ask friends and relatives you trust for recommendations. They can often tell you which plumbers they’ve used and what they thought of them. They may be able to alert you of any plumbers to avoid using, as well as plumbers who provide satisfactory service. You can also go online and look for the company’s previous customer reviews.
Check places such as the Better Business Bureau and companies that specialize in rating company service, such as Angie’s List. Once you have a list of three, four, or five possible plumbers to review, check out their websites. A good company website provides a wealth of information about the company including rates and services offered. Whatever questions are not answered by the website can be answered with a follow up phone call.
When making phone contact, either for information or to schedule an appointment, take note of how you, the potential customer, is treated. You want to work with a plumbing company that treats you with respect and answers your questions without the run-around.
Make sure the plumber has the necessary legal standing to do the work. This means the plumber needs to be certified, licensed, and insured for their protection and yours. Ask for personal references and check them out to make sure these are genuine.
Check out the address of the plumbing business to make sure it really exists. You want to work with a local company that has a vested interest in the community and in keeping customers satisfied and coming back.
Guarantees of service are also important. Make sure the job isn’t subcontracted to different plumbers that may not offer the same guarantees. You want the job done on time, and, if there are any problems, you want the plumber to repair, replace or do whatever is necessary to provide a satisfactory result.
