4 Things to know before you hire a plumber for any reason but especially Sump Pump Repair.
It’s so hard to decide when it is that you need a plumber. If you are new to the area that makes it even harder to find a good quality plumber.
Here are 4 things you need to know before you hire a plumber.
1. Ask your friends for a recommendation. They will be your best way to weed out people who are overcharging for work that doesn’t need to be done. I have referred a company over and over again after they told me, Yes I can fix it but it’s not worth it and you should get another one. This company wasn’t out for themselves they were out for the good of the customer. These are the type of referrals you want.
2. Ask if the plumber is licensed. You do not want a handyman doing your work. You need to verify that they are a licensed plumber and can do the job. Ask! Handymen aren’t licensed repairman. You could get one that knows what he’s doing. But it’s just not worth the risk of having to have to fix the problem all over again.
3. Ask questions that pertain to your problem. You want to know they’ve dealt with this issue before so make sure you ask the right questions so you can tell if they’ve already had that and know what to do for it! A good plumber with a few years behind him should know and have dealt with the majority of issues.
4. Get a few estimates. Estimates are a good way to judge how much it’s going to cost. So make sure that you get a minimum of 3 estimates and know exactly what will be done and how. Get it in writing so that you can refer back to what they said and be able to stand firm if they try to add in things you didn’t ask them to do!
Once you’ve done these things you are ready to hire the plumber and let him fix your Sump Pump Repair Problem once and for all!
