The Best Way To Find A Great Plumbing Company

Have you ever come home from work only to find your sewer line backed up? Maybe you got up early in the morning, ready to take that hot shower only to find out that there is no hot water. Can you relate to one of these situations? Or maybe you’ve had your own lousy plumbing issue. Whatever the case, it left you scrambling to find a good plumber. We’ve heard stories where homeowners get ripped off by a plumber or plumbing company. One thing is for sure, don’t base your search solely on cost. If you’re looking for the cheapest plumber, you’re looking for trouble. There are many ways to find a good plumbing company, so stay cool, calm, and collected. Your great plumbing company is right around the corner.

Find A Plumbing Company With A Great Reputation

A good plumbing company will have established a good reputation for themselves. What are the signs of a plumbing company with a great reputation? 

  1. They do what they say they are going to do.
  2. Customers have nothing but great things to say about them.
  3. They take ownership when mistakes happen.
  4. The company gives back to the community.
  5. Employees are respected and well cared for.
  6. Uncompromising principles
  7. The company invests in itself, such as top-notch equipment or education for its employees.
  8. They never stop learning.

The fact is, nothing is hidden from the public anymore. If you want to find out something about a plumbing company, it’s easy to search online. If you happen to search online for a particular company and nothing comes up, stay away. You can build a significant profile for a company by checking reviews.

The Safety Of The Customers Are Number One

Let’s face it, we live in a different world than ten years ago. Find a plumbing company that puts your safety first. Ask if the plumbers have had background checks. When a plumber comes to your home, that person is a complete stranger. A background check will tell you whether or not your plumber is a sex offender or has a criminal past. Many plumbing companies say that they complete background checks, but they may not. Find a company that uses a third party to do their background checks. At Big B Plumbing, we use for all our background checks. The Seal will provide the plumbers with a photo ID to confirm a completed background check.

Hiring A Plumber Solely On Price Usually Comes Back To Bite You

Beware of companies that guarantee the lowest bid or claim to beat anyone’s quote. If you have estimates that are close in price, go with the company you feel the most comfortable. Hiring a plumber solely on price usually comes back to bite you. Remember, there is nothing wrong with asking a plumbing company to match an estimate close in price.

Verify Your Plumbing Company’s License

Never hire an unlicensed plumber. Some companies say that they are licensed but the only way to know is by checking. At Big B’s Plumbing, we hold ourselves to a strict standard of accountability. Our third-party verification service, The Seal, verifies our license, bond, and insurance annually. Did you know that you can check a license with a couple of clicks of your mouse? If an unlicensed person in your home is hurt from doing work, your homeowner’s insurance might not cover the claim.

Here Is The Best Way To Hire A Great Plumbing Company

  1. Look for top-notch reviews across all social networks.
  2. Never hire a company that you cannot see on the internet.
  3. Make sure plumbers have had background checks by a third party.
  4. Don’t base your decision solely on price.
  5. Hire a licensed, bonded, and insured plumbing company. (Check A License Here)

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
