Hiring a Plumber 101

Published by Webmaster

Plumbers near Sacramento are a dime a dozen—but that doesn’t mean they are all qualified to do good work. When you are looking for a qualified plumber, be sure to ask for the license, the license number, and proof of bonding and liability insurance. Verify that the worker’s compensation and liability insurance is active.

If you have a specific project in mind, the plumber should provide you with a detailed estimate that includes the amount of time the job will take. Find out if the plumber offers emergency plumbing services; if you have a problem late at night, you will be glad you are already familiar with the plumbing company’s work.

Find out how long the plumbing company has been in business and how their prices compare to plumbing companies with comparable experience.
