Choosing the Right Plumbing Company for Your Needs

Most people don’t think much about plumbers until they need one. When your toilet’s running or your washing machine won’t drain, how do you choose the right plumbing company for your needs? A quick online search can inundate you with options. Here are a few tips from your friends at 1 Call Plumbing on how to pick the right plumber.

What Kind of Plumbing Do You Need?
The first thing to determine is what kind of plumbing a professional provides. Do they specialize in large-scale commercial jobs? Are they known for their work in homes and rental properties? Some plumbers work most often in private homes while others specialize in restaurant plumbing, office plumbing, and so on. Take a good look at the way a company describes itself to determine if they’re a good fit right off the bat.

Which Hours Do You Need Service?
Although it’s easy to assume all plumbers provide 24/7 service (after all, plumbing emergencies don’t just occur during regular business hours!), not all plumbers work around the clock. If you’re looking for emergency service – maybe your toilet is overflowing or your basement is flooding – be sure to choose a plumber who works all hours to remedy your situation and can be at your property ASAP.

What Kind of Experience Do They Have?
In plumbing, experience is everything! Anyone can watch a YouTube video on how to snake a drain, but only years of experience will teach you what to do when the snake gets caught or the drain curves sharply. First-hand learning on the job is the best way to figure out how to resolve issues quickly and cost-effectively. Look for a plumber who has years, if not decades, of combined professional experience.

Do They Offer a Guarantee?
Any good professional will guarantee their service, plumbers included! Great plumbers will guarantee the work they do and offer to return free of charge if your plumbing problem comes back within a reasonable time frame. Of course, all the materials and parts they use should be guaranteed too, both by the plumber and the manufacturer.
