How To Hire An Awesome Plumber

How To Hire An Awesome Plumber

No one likes to wait to get their plumbing issue handled, which holds true for most homeowners. However, when we have a plumbing problem, we want to get it handled quickly. There is nothing is worse than a lingering plumbing issue. Maybe it’s that backed-up drain, broken water heater, or newly discovered water leak. Whatever the case, we need it handled by an awesome plumber and fast! For many of us, we call the first plumbing company we find, and either it goes to voicemail or the next appointment is two days out. 

Asking Your Friends and Family Is One Good Way To find An Awesome Plumber

Some of us prefer asking a friend or family member to get a referral. Asking friends or family is great, but you need to get all the details when requesting a reference. For example, some smaller plumbing companies working out of their home are not equipped to service all plumbing concerns. They don’t have the correct equipment, and in some cases, the workforce to accomplish the job. So they end up hiring a third-party plumbing company to complete much of the work. 

Not Every Plumbing Company’s Reviews Are 100% Reliable

Most of us have become accustomed to searching reviews for the right plumbing company. Going through reviews is a perfect place to start when looking for an awesome plumber. But even reviews are not 100% reliable. Did you know you can purchase reviews through a third-party company? The answer is YES! Many companies cheat and buy reviews. Have you ever wondered why some companies have hundreds of reviews and others have very little? The answer is simple, the plumber asks the customer for a review, and more times than not, they will get one. 

While some companies will fake many of their reviews, some work for them. Usually, plumbing companies that have many ongoing regular reviews are the best-trusted companies. Also, watch for companies with nothing but 5-star reviews because even the best well-equipped companies will have setbacks.

Let’s focus on some of the positives for a moment. There are plumbing companies that will provide the award-winning services you would expect right here in town. Let’s look at some comments posted about our plumbers at Big B’s Plumbing. It really tells us what makes an awesome plumber.

  1. In some cases, the plumber you speak to may not be the same person who will handle your job. They might use helpers or subcontractors, in which case you will want to ask about the experience and credentials they have. The person giving the quote may seem up-to-scratch, but if their workers are not, you could risk someone with less training or experience providing a lower level of service.

  2. Plumbing industries ought to be aware of their structures, to avoid perils and have the alternative to contact capable help before things break down. An obligation of appreciation is all together. Thanks for this article!

  3. Great read! Being a plumber myself I can totally relate to this, the fact that some plumbers fail to meet even some of the basic standards is beyond me. Being prompt , courteous and professional should be a something ever business person knows.

  4. The pipe in my kitchen is stinking and my mom told me to call a plumber for help. I agree when you said that a great plumber should be prompt, courteous and professional! I am not sure how to fix the problem myself so I would need to speak to a professional plumber to help me fix my pipe or sewer problem. Thanks loads for the article on how to hire an awesome plumber!

  5. Thanks for your tip about asking family and friends to get referrals for plumbers! My husband noticed late last night that we have a small puddle of water in our bathroom, and he’s not sure where the leak is. We’re hoping to call an emergency plumber to come out here asap.

  6. I appreciate you warning us that not all reviews are 100% reliable, so it’s best to look for them on trusted sites where the feedback for their services can’t be faked. I woke up to a dripping faucet this morning, so I wanted to have it fixed soon before my water bill skyrockets significantly if I leave it be. I’ll be sure to take note of this when looking for a plumber to contact soon for repairs.
