4 Tips for Hiring a Plumber

There are more than 400,000 plumbers in the United States, but not all of them are equal. You’ve heard the horror stories in the news — the plumber that overcharges you or does a terrible job. Don’t let this put you off. There are loads of qualified, experienced professionals who can optimize your household plumbing system and save you money on your water bills. Here are four tips for hiring a plumber.

Tips for Hiring a Plumber

 

1. Look for Credentials

All good plumbers have the necessary credentials that prove they are up to the job. When checking out plumbers in your area, look for things like UWIN — a consumer service resource that provides you with extra protection. UWIN contractors have been properly trained, drug tested, and background checked.

2. Look for Experience

The best plumbers have served their local communities for years and worked with various domestic and commercial clients. These plumbers will have a strong local reputation and can provide you with the services you require.

3. Choose a Plumber Who Specializes in Various Services

Drains, water heaters, sewer repair — these are just some of the services offered by a qualified plumber. Choosing a plumber that specializes in a wide range of services will provide you with more bang for your buck. You won’t have to use several different companies and can solve all your plumbing-related issues in one go.

4. Check Out Referrals

Referrals are really important because they tell you whether a plumber’s previous customers received good service. The best plumbers post these referrals on their website because they are proud of them. If you can’t find any referrals on a plumber’s site, it could be cause for concern.

Credentials, experience, a wide range of services, customer referrals — these are just some of the things you should look for when you hire a plumber in your local area.

Looking for a UWIN-endorsed plumber with years of experience and lots of referrals who offers services like pipe repair, sewer management, and plumbing installation? Contact Benjamin Franklin right now and get a free quote.
