How To Select The Best Plumber Posted on December 29, 2015

There are many horror stories being told about plumbers who arrive on site, spend the next 10 minutes replacing a washer in a faucet, turn around at read the paper for the next 50 minutes and then present the homeowner with a hefty bill.

Stories like this may or may not have an element of truth to them but not all tradesmen, plumbers included, are con-artists but with such a high demand for skilled professionals the door has been left ajar for unskilled, unscrupulous characters to take advantage of those who simply don’t know what to expect in the first place. As a result, trades have been left in tatters, no one really knows if the person that shows up to do the work is truly a professional. What can you do to ensure that you get the best plumber in Deerfield IL when you are knee deep in water and really need professional help?

The best solution is to get recommendations but with so few excellent plumbers, and what few there are hard to find and fully booked as well, it might actually prove difficult to find someone you know and trust that has found a good plumber. In cases like this the only solution is to undertake your own search, assuming of course you have time to make a detailed search.

If you’re faced with a situation where water is rapidly filling the room you don’t have time to waste. At this time, you have two options; open the yellow pages and search the internet for names. Although the situation is one where you need help fast, don’t let the urgency stop you from making a few important inquires over the phone.

   * Ask the candidate how long he has been in business and if the business has a physical presence. The first indication of a fly-by-night plumber is that he works out of his truck using a cell phone. The best plumber in Deerfield IL will always be supported by staff and have a bricks and mortar facility.

   * If you feel there is time, ask for the names of past customers that you can contact. Try to get names from a year or so back, by talking to these people you will get a good idea if the work was high quality.

   * Find out if they carry liability and workers comp insurance.

   * Ask for details on the warranty they offer on parts and labor.

Once you believe you are close to making a decision explain as best you can what seems to be the problem. Ask for an estimate, it may not be accurate but ask for the best he can provide without seeing the job. Ask the same question of the top three plumbers on your list.
