Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Plumbing Contractor, Shelton, Connecticut

When working on any home project, you want to partner with someone who is professional, reliable, and friendly. The next time you seek to hire a plumbing contractor, vet them with these three questions. This will help you find the right person for the job, and if need be, you can work together again in the future.

Do you Have Proper Certification?

You might have gone off the recommendation of a friend or found a plumbing contractor through Yelp. Before you go any further with working together, make sure this person has the correct documentation and certifications. You need someone who is insured, registered, and licensed. These items should be easy for a legitimate plumber to produce. And if they can’t offer you these documents? It’s better to err on the side of caution and continue looking for another plumber.

Can You Provide References?

In addition to proper paperwork, it helps to vet a plumbing contractor by reviewing their references. Once you’ve secured the contact information of a past client or personal reference, you want to ask about the project’s timeline, if the job was performed correctly, and if they have any other concerns or praises about the company.

Have You Done This Specific Job Before?

All plumbers should know how to deal with quick-fix problems like clogged drains or a running toilet. But if you have something more challenging on your hands, it helps to find a plumbing contractor who’s worked on this particular job in the past. Provide as much detail as you can about your plumbing problem and ask for a time when the contractor completed a similar task.
