Things to consider before hiring a plumbing company

As a Gauteng homeowner, you shouldn’t be entrusting your plumbing repairs to just anyone. Remember, you’re putting your faucet, toilet, and water heaters in their hands. A faulty repair may lead to more expensive and complicated problems in the future.

Consider these before you hire a plumber:

Experience

Always check the length of time your plumber has been in business. Bigger groups usually have more experienced plumbers, but better check just to be sure. Years of experience can mean that the company has built a good record.

Pricing

Plumbers would know the cost of repairs and should give you an accurate quote. More complicated repairs are a different story, though. But ask for quotes from different plumbers, and check for big differences. If the cost is too low, there’s a risk that the plumber is cutting corners, or using substandard parts.

References

Experienced plumbers should be able to give you references. Check with their past customers so you get an idea of how well they work. If they can’t provide you offline or online references, it’s a good idea to look for someone else.

Insurance

This is important. An insurance is you and your plumber’s protection in case of accidents or injuries. It’s best if your plumber is bonded, too.

Warranty

A plumber’s work should be covered by a warranty. This usually lasts for a year, and gives you a guarantee of their work, and the parts they used. If the plumber can’t give you this, you’re better off without them.
