Four Things To Look For In A Plumber

Posted by on April 30, 2018 in Plumber | 0 comments

Getting a great plumber in Melbourne is hard to come by, but not impossible. The key thing is to know what you are looking for. Here are some key things to pay attention to when looking for your next plumber.

Experience

Experience is probably the most important, if you are looking for an experienced plumber, make sure to have a look on their website, to see how long they have been in business, or if it’s a locally owned company, or one that hires inexperienced young individuals that have no clue as to what they are doing. You want to make sure that all the money you are spending to have good service is actually being spent on just that.

Up Front Rates

Make sure that what they quote is actually the final price. The problem with some plumbers, or some companies that contract plumbers, is that they have a base rate, then if something “happens” they charge extra without informing you, or waiting until everything is in pieces and is all deconstructed to tell you. You want to know where your money is going at times, so that is why you should be asking the rates up front.

Commitment

You want to make sure that you find a plumber that can offer you a personal guarantee, because you want the best service done by the best people. So make sure to look over past clients, or past jobs they have done (including all their services, such as roof guttering in Melbourne), to make sure it is done right, on time and on the price quoted.

Hours Of Operation

Depending on when you need service from a plumber, or when you need a job done, make sure to look or negotiate hours or times on which they are open. If you have an emergency in the middle of the night, you want to make sure that you can call an experienced individual that can get the job done within a certain time and as not to cause more problems down the line if the job is not done right away.

We all will have plumbing issues and problems, but the main thing to remember, is that you want someone experienced and committed to giving you the best service. Another thing to always remember, plumbing issues can happen any hour of any day, so make sure that you find someone that can come at any time, especially if it is a serious issue.
