How to Choose the Right Plumber

When most homeowners think of a plumber, what comes to mind is someone who fixes a clogged toilet. But there is so much more to plumbing.

Plumbers take care of your home’s water, gas and sewage needs by installing, maintaining and repairing pipes used to carry these elements through your home. In fact, it is sometimes said that the plumbing profession will never go out of demand due to the necessity of having properly working pipes throughout the home.

Selecting a Quality Plumber

A reputable, experienced Arizona plumbing company will be able to provide a wide range of services, including: water heater installation, repair and replacement; cleaning and unclogging drains; fixing or replacing sewer pipes; septic system maintenance; reverse osmosis system installation and maintenance; and more.

Here are some tips to make sure you are working with a reputable, experienced plumber:

  • Proper licensing: All plumbers with an Arizona plumbing company, including sub-contractors and journeymen, are required to be licensed by the state.
  • Get an estimate: Ask for an estimate that includes everything that will be completed for a given price. Some plumbing companies charge according to time and material expended while other companies charge a flat rate for a job.
  • Warranties offered: A quality Phoenix plumbing company should guarantee their work for an acceptable period of time.
  • Online reviews: Visit an online review site that specializes in home repairs and make sure the plumbing company you choose doesn’t have a laundry list of negative customer reviews.
  • Availability: A plumber touches many important areas of the home. As such, a quality Phoenix plumbing provider should be available for emergency needs 24 hours a day.
  • Business stability: Is the company new to your area or do they have a history of providing quality service?
