What to expect from your plumber? The fact is many homeowners rarely need a plumber. If we really stop to think, most of us can count the times on one hand that we have called for a plumber. Some of us were taught to plan for problems, and I’m sure that included plumbing problems. At the very least, we should have a plumber or plumbers phone numbers available should we run into a plumbing problem. Whether we want to believe it or not, we will need a plumber at some point.
Your Plumber Needs To Be On Time
What should I expect from my plumber? First and foremost, you want your plumber to arrive on time. In many cases, the homeowner will take time off work to get the plumbing issue handled. A plumbing company has a pretty good idea how long certain plumbing jobs take so scheduling should be fairly accurate. However, there are times when a job doesn’t go as planned for your plumber. Whether your plumber is going to be early or late, he or she should show the courtesy of a call, informing the homeowner when to expect them.
Your Plumber Needs To Be Courteous
Expect your plumber to have the right courtesies, in other words, good manners, and decent communication skills. They should be clean and well groomed. I noticed that some people posting reviews online said: “My plumber smelled like cigarettes.” At Big B’s Plumbing, technical skills, plumbing skills, communication, and cleanliness is all part of the training process.
Expect Top-Notch Plumbing Skills
Without question, you can expect your plumber to have top-notch plumbing skills. Some plumbing companies have specific plumbers for specific jobs. For example, a plumber may excel at water heater installation, so they become a specialist of sorts at installing and repairing water heaters. Likewise, there are others best at installing and soldering copper pipes. Whatever the case, your plumber must be able to perform plumbing skills at a high level.
Get An Estimate Before You Plumber Starts Work
Your plumber must give you an estimate of costs before they start work. Be mindful that some plumbing jobs are easy to estimate such as a toilet installation, water heater install, or installing washer hoses. On the contrary, some plumbing problems are unknown. For example, you may have a clogged drain, and while most drains are easily unclogged with a plumber’s snake, there are times when a plumber may need to bring in some heavy equipment such as a hydro jetter. The point is this, no two plumbing jobs are the same. While your plumber will give you an estimate based on what he sees in front of him, the issue may change.
It’s The Plumbers Responsibility To Leave The Job Clean
Expect your plumber to leave the job better than when he arrived. Plumbing is a dirty job, but it is the plumber’s responsibility to leave the job clean. The homeowner should never have to clean up after your plumber. Call your Big B’s Plumbing expert today contractor license #9786152.
