Top Five Considerations When Choosing a Plumber

Plumbing Solutions of Idaho expert tips

Most of the time, we don’t give our plumbing a lot of consideration. It’s there all the time, serving our washing, drinking, flushing needs every day in and day out, and we rarely give it a second thought. That is until something goes wrong. Then we think about it a lot. In fact, until it’s taken care of, we’re hard-pressed to think of anything else! That’s when choosing a reputable plumber becomes Job #1 until things are flowing along smoothly again.

​Choose the Best for the Best Results

A quick run-down of what to look for when choosing your Plumber will help avoid costly mistakes. And when it comes to plumbing, mistakes are not an option. When choosing a plumber in Boise, keep the following in mind:

  • QUALIFICATIONS & EXPERIENCE. Certification and experience are paramount. A certified plumber has made sure he knows his trade well, and he’s gone the extra mile to make sure you’re comfortable with his qualifications. An expert plumber won’t need to waste time trying to figure out your particular problem or your new construction project. He’s seen it before, and he’s got your back.
  • REPUTATION, REPUTATION, REPUTATION. Ask around. A local plumber lives and works among us and his reputation are like gold to him. If he’s doing a good job and has been in the area for a while, the community knows his company can be counted on to deliver superior results, and he guarantees those results. You don’t want to risk your construction project or repair on someone who can’t or won’t provide references. That’s a red flag, and you’ll want to keep looking.
  • AVAILABILITY. It might go without saying, but, when it comes to a plumbing emergency, tomorrow is too late. You want (you need) fast, guaranteed, same-day repair. If a plumber says he’ll have to get back to you, just keep looking.
  • PRICING. Grandpa said it and grandma brought it home. You get what you pay for. If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is. A reputable plumbing company has prices that fall in line with local markets. He offers quality products at quality prices, and can provide a quote so you’ll feel good going into the job.
  • HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY! Don’t hire a grouch! But you knew that already.
