It is cold as can be outside and your tap is drip-drip-dripping. Time to call a Calgary plumber but how does one choose? With a phonebook filled with plumbers how do you know which one will provide you the best value for your money, plus do the job right – the first time? Before you make that phone call, here are a couple of tips.
1) Ensure the plumber you hire is insured.
This not only covers you if something goes wrong with the job, it covers you if the plumber is hurt while he is working in your home.
2) Ensure the plumber you hire is licensed and has gone through the necessary courses and testing to receive certification.
This ensures they have successfully learned their trade and have the papers and documentation to prove it.
3) Ensure the plumber has references.
This will give you peace of mind, knowing that the plumber has completed jobs to their clients’ satisfaction before.
4) Arrange for a free quote.
Usually if you describe the problem on the phone, a plumber will be able to give you a quick estimate.
5) Ensure the plumber’s work is guaranteed.
If something goes wrong with the project in the future, it’s always good to know that you can call that same plumber to get the repair done for free, or at a lower rate.
Following these tips will ensure your little drip doesn’t turn into a swimming pool of problems.
