Top 3 Questions Homeowners Should Ask a Plumber


If you want your plumbing project to be completed successfully, it’s wise to hire a trusted and friendly plumber. In addition to looking at online reviews and websites, it’s imperative to chat with the plumbers to figure out if they are good fit for your home or business’ plumbing needs. Here are 3 questions you should ask your plumber before hiring them:

How much does the service cost?

Knowing how much the plumbing services will cost is essential. Ask if the rate will be hourly, a flat price, or milestone based. Then, discuss when the payment should be sent and which forms are accepted. Digital forms of payments such as credit cards are easier to track with paperwork than cash.

Do you have insurance?

Ask the plumber if they are insured. If an accident happens, such as flooding or broken pipes, you want to stay protected if your home gets damaged. Ask to see credentials or paperwork, if available. Licensed professionals should be registered with a governing body or insured by a prestigious company with full protection against all accidents.

Who are you sending here?

Ask about the person they will send to your home. You need to know who they are and when they are going to arrive. You should also use this opportunity to ask about plumber’s and business licensing to make sure they are in accordance with the law.
