A good way to find a qualified plumbing professional is through referrals from friends, family, or colleagues. Someone you trust is likely to have had a good experience with a plumber and can recommend one.
Of course, look for a plumber close to your area as travelling costs can quickly inflate the overall cost of the job.
3. Check online
It’s important to get quotes from a few different plumbers before making a decision. Quotes should be free and most plumbers are happy to get your business. As with any professional service, plumbers are known to give estimates that are somewhat high in order to ensure they make a profit.
Be sure to get written quotes from at least three plumbers to ensure you’re getting the best deal.
5. Ask about guarantees
When comparing quotations, be sure to ask about guarantees. A good plumber should always guarantee their work and parts they use for a certain period of time.
If you are doing an insurance claim, the insurance company will most likely use a plumber from their list of approved providers.
