The hunt for a qualified plumber

When it comes to servicing your plumbing systems, Binbrook Plumbing & Heating in Binbrook, Ontario, recommends homeowners shop around for a reputable company.

Even if you’re a do-it-yourselfer, sooner or later even you may end up needing the services of a professional plumber. But how do you find a good one?

Start by talking to people you know who have hired a plumber to find out what their experience was like. There are also many user-reviewed websites and the Better Business Bureau site to help you learn more about a specific company and how they rate.

Once you have narrowed down your search to a few good prospects, make a list of the work you need done and then contact the plumbers for an estimate. Make sure the scope of work is the same for each plumber so that you can compare the quotes easily. The plumber you choose should be licensed and insured, with a minimum of five to 10 years in the business. A plumber who has had their own business for over 20 years is usually well-established with a strong customer base and will offer competitive rates.

If you have a large project, your plumber should be able to provide a contract that clearly outlines the work to be completed and the supplies that will be required. Some projects may become more involved, especially in a large renovation where walls are being removed and new challenges present themselves. A professional plumber will anticipate potential problems and discuss them with you before they start a job.

Most reputable plumbers want to make sure their customers are satisfied, since much of their business is based on word of mouth. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about the guarantees they offer or warranties on products.

These simple steps can help you find the right company for your next plumbing project. Binbrook Plumbing & Heating has been serving its customers for over 25 years and know exactly what they expect from a qualified plumber.
