Things to Look For
Licenses. All plumbing services companies need to have the correct licenses. If the one you go to balks at this question, go somewhere else. Reputable companies know this and will not have a problem showing you theirs.
Insurance. Make sure they are up to date on their workman’s compensation and liability. If one of their people is injured working in your home, that could cause big problems for you. Do not take their word for it, you can verify it before they work on your house.
Reputation. How long have the plumbing services company been in business and do they have references? Check Yelp and Facebook and see what other customers say about them. Ask your friends, family and neighbors. Most plumbers stay in one area so the odds are in your favor that one or more of your neighbors has used the company.
Price. Shop around for quotes from several plumbing services companies. Now, the price depends on a number of factors. Does your job require custom plumbing or is it basic? The time it takes to do a job does have an impact on the final price. Also, the cheapest may not be the best option and if they do really bad work, you are just going to need to have it redone. Conversely, the most expensive option may not really be worth the money. They just might be a super expensive plumbing services company.
Do you like the company? How are they at answering your plumbing questions? Do they provide and proactive plumbing solutions like things to prevent clogs or other drainage problems.
