How To Hire a Good Chula Vista Plumbing Company

When you are in need of plumbing services, where do you turn to find a good plumbing company? It can be overwhelming looking in the yellow pages or online for a plumber in your area, so ask your friends and family first. Reputation is one of the most important aspects to a contractor’s career, so find one with a good reputation and you found a good contractor.

By asking around to family friends you are able to get honest and trustworthy feedback on the plumbing service and price. If anyone you know had recently had any plumbing work done in their own home, ask them if they were satisfied with the service and of course the price.

If you have to turn to the yellow pages to find a good plumber then make sure you do your homework. Read reviews, get background and experience information and always compare pricing. The lowest price is not always the best way to go, keep in mind that you do get what you pay for. In some instances you can consider a price decrease a good thing, with a larger company you will pay more and maybe get a more professional level of service but with a smaller privately owned company you are able to get a more intimate level of service.

When you call a large company you can ask all the questions but the plumber you are speaking with may not be the one who comes out to your home. Private owned companies that are smaller will usually include the owner of the company onsite.

How To Know Your Chosen Plumber Is Qualified

There are several qualifications you should check before hiring a plumbing company. Below are the main points that should be checked out before you agree to hire the plumber or plumbing service.

State License or Certification: Several states require plumbers to carry a license and/or certification in order to work in that state. Call and verify that the plumber you chose has met the requirements and that there are no complaints lodged against them or the company.

Insurance: Be sure that the plumbing company you are considering is fully insured and bonded. There should be both Workers’ Compensation and liability insurance. Always ask for a copy of the policy to ensure that it is up to date and offers the necessary coverage and protection.

Better Business Bureau: before hiring any plumber in Chula Vista, always contact the BBB to find out of there are any complaints filed against the company.

Don’t Be Afraid To Ask Questions

Once you have narrowed down your search for the right plumber to a few, have them come out and write up an estimate at your home. Never go with just one estimate, get several to ensure you are getting the best price, the best time frame and the most experienced plumber. The plumber should be able to clearly state the terms of the estimate and explain the scope of the project, the payment terms and any items that are excluded and why.

Quality of Materials

The differences in quote price from plumber to plumber may have to do with the quality of materials they are using. Be sure you ask what materials are being used, if they are using inferior parts you could end up with a much larger problem on your hands later on down the road. Get familiar with brand names and quality parts to ensure that you know you are getting the best. Find out about the manufacturer’s warranty on the parts and be sure that you understand that you do get what you pay for. What might cost less now may end up costing you much more in the long run.

Talk to your plumbing company about alternative parts choices. Ask the plumber if they use FlowGuard Gold CPVC pipe fittings or other alternative superior products. These types of pipe fittings have several benefits over the standard copper piping. They are designed to never scale, corrode or pit. This could help to eliminate future failures and save money on re-piping.

Plumber Experience

Always ask how long the plumber has been in business. Get an idea of their background and their experience level before making your choice. If you have been personally referred you may be able to overlook the lower experienced level issues, but if not they are going to be very important to your decision.
Find out of there is a guarantee for the work completed. You want to be sure that if something goes wrong you won’t have to pay for labor costs again.

Permits a Plumber Needs

On some projects you may be required to pull permits to complete the work. Ask the plumbing company if they are responsible for pulling these permits or if you are. There are fees for permits, so find out if they are going to pull them if that price is already included in their estimate.

Clean Up

Ask the plumber if they intend to clean up after the project is completed. Be sure that the cost of cleanup is already included in the estimate if so and you don’t get charged for it later.

Ask about protection that is used to prevent accidents such as oil spills on the rugs or cuts from various metal or copper fittings left on the floor.

Pricing for a Plumber

Always compare prices with several plumbers before making your final choice. Consider the quality of materials used, the time frame for completion and the experience that is offered. Make sure that every detail is included in the estimate, such as the model numbers of items you are using, color and descriptions as well as price. Ensure the pricing estimate covers everything that is to be done. Keep in mind an estimate is just that, an estimate. You may need to pay more out of pocket than expected but that should be discussed before any work is completed.
