When you have a plumbing emergency at home, you need to find a competent, experienced plumber as soon as possible to resolve the issue. There are a few options for finding a plumber:
For a referral, ask your family or friends.
Inquire with a local real estate agent about a successful plumber she has used in the past.
If you’ve already worked with another contractor in your house, ask for a referral.
Request a recommendation for a reliable plumbing business from your nearest plumbing supply shop. Learn more by visiting Mesa Plumbers.
Look up reviews of plumbers in your area on the internet. If you use one of the famous search engines, such as Google or Yahoo, to look for a plumber in your area, you’ll find the search engines’ “Local Listing” of plumbers who are geographically close to you, as well as links to their websites and customer reviews of their work.
Always make sure you’re dealing with a licenced plumber by requesting a copy of his state licence. Plumbers who are licenced have the necessary work experience, training, and knowledge of current state and local plumbing codes. They must take annual continuing education to keep up with improvements in the codes, new products, and advances in plumbing, in addition to taking an exam to obtain their licence.
Look for plumbers who have been in business for 8-10 years as a strong rule of thumb. This will give you an idea of how sustainable and stable the company is, as well as whether they will be around long enough to justify the work they do on your house.
