It’s easy to forget about your water heater but when it breaks, it quickly becomes your top concern. Hiring a reputable repairman will save you the stress and strain of dealing with your broken heater, but finding the right company can be difficult. Exercise caution before hiring a new plumbing contractor to perform even the most basic repairs.
Here are a few qualities to consider before letting a plumbing repair company work on your broken heater:
- Reputation: The last thing you want to do is lock yourself into a poor repair service. Before hiring a contractor, make sure they’re reputable. Check online for client testimonials and reviews from others in the community. Once you have a general idea of their standing in the area, ask the company for references to determine if they’re worthwhile.
- Clear Pricing & Estimates: Unfortunately, some plumbing repair companies do not explain all the potential charges and costs associated with a repair. When a company provides you with an estimate, make sure it’s clear and thorough. If you have any questions regarding specific charges or lack thereof, ask the plumber for more details.
- Business License: Any plumbing repair company you hire should possess a valid license and current insurance policies before performing any work on your property. Without insurance, you may be liable for damages that happen as a result of the water heater repair. If you’re concerned about whether they have a valid license, ask for proof. Reputable companies will happily provide you with the information.
