When you’ve been in business for 25+ years, you learn a thing or two about plumbing. One of the most common occurrences we see with plumbing issues is that they never have convenient timing. You have family over, and the toilet gets backed up. You’re running late for work and realize you have no hot water – we’ve all been there!
When things like that occur, the last thing you want to be doing is sifting through a list of faceless plumbers, trying to figure out which one will actually be able to help you. At Mallick Plumbing & Heating, we understand how difficult it can be to choose the right plumber, and we believe it shouldn't be about luck. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of helpful tips and qualifications you should be aware of when hiring your next plumber.
Always Choose a Plumber with Great Reviews
All plumbers will say that they provided quality work. But how do you really know? Local reviews are a great way to check the quality of work provided by your potential plumber. Google, Yelp and Angi are just a few platforms you can view reviews from their customers. Platforms like these take their reviews very serious, so customers shouldn’t have any ties to the business or receive any compensation for them.
Before hiring your next plumber, inspect their reviews and analyze what words are commonly used when customers describe their work. Are they positive or negative?
This is a great way to start your search when looking for a quality plumber!
Always Choose a Plumber That Is Licensed, Insured & Bonded
Even though plumbers are detailed and precise with their approach and their work, it is possible mistakes may happen. If that occurs, you are going to want a professional that owns the mistake and works with their insurance to resolve it. This is rare – but does happen. And if it does and you have hired a plumber who isn’t insured, it could be a messy and expensive cleanup.
It is Recommended to Hire a Plumber with Financing Options
As previously stated, plumbing issues aren’t the best with their timing. Unexpectedly they occur, leaving you to hustle to find a solution, which sometimes can lead to a surprise expense.
Instead of having to pay for that service out of pocket the same day, research for plumbers who have secure financing options that fit your budget and make sure you spend time researching this beforehand. When a plumber visits your house to resolve your issue, make sure you fully understand the service and what financial options you have at your disposal.
When you find a plumber who has financial options like us with our partnership with Greensky, you will feel more comfortable knowing you’re receiving a quality repair with financing that is flexible with your budget.
