What You Should Look for in a Plumber
We live in the Information Age. When you want to locate a service professional, finding information on one is easy. But there’s often too much information—meaning too many professionals—who pop up when you type a few terms into a search engine. If you’re looking for a plumber in the Durham area, and you type “Durham plumber” into the search engine box, you’ll find plenty of plumbing contractors offering their services. In fact, we imagine that’s how ended up here at our website.
So how do you choose the right plumber out of all your options? Here are some things to look for:
- Licensed: Always look for the plumbing contractor’s state license number on the website. This is the first indication of a professional company that is bonded and insured for your protection. (Our license number is 15764.)
- Emergency service: A plumber that only answers the phones during regular business hours isn’t going to be much help when you have a plumbing emergency in your house like a burst pipe or backed-up toilet. These types of emergencies have a habit of happening at the least convenient times, like late Sunday night. But no time is inconvenient for a plumber who offers 24/7 emergency services!
- Experience and history: Young companies are certainly capable of delivering excellent service. But it’s much easier to trust a plumbing contractor that has at least 10 years of history behind it. This not only means a company with extensive experience at solving problems and handling jobs quickly, it also indicates that the contractor has earned the trust of numerous customers and the community at large. (We’ve been in business for over 30 years!)
Honestly, however, you don’t have to look hard to find these criteria in a plumbing contractor… because you’ve already found one! You can trust to our experienced plumbers for the finest quality service.
