HELP! Tips for Finding a Plumber


ISO a reputable, local plumber? 


When your drains are clogged or your water heater is acting up, the last thing you have time to deliberate over is finding a trustworthy plumber. Making a rash decision now could result in more problems down the road. You want to hire a plumber that offers long-term results and gets the job done right the first time. So, what do you do? 


Here are tips from our plumbing pros at Best Home Services to help you find the best plumber for you: 



#1. Make Sure That They are Licensed and Insured 


Don’t choose a plumber based on price alone.  


While not always the case, their prices may be discounted because their work is subpar. Do your due diligence and look for a trustworthy plumber that is licensed and insured in case a catastrophe occurs while they are fixing your plumbing issue

#2. Ask How Long They Have Been in Business 


When you have someone coming out to perform repairs on your home, you want to choose an established company with a well-known reputation. A company that has been around for decades like Best Home Services is less likely to ghost you halfway through your plumbing project or repair

#3. Look for Customer Reviews and Testimonials 


Do not rely on their website or advertisements alone; look to reviews and testimonials before choosing a plumbing company. A quick Google search will reveal past customer experiences and provide insight into that specific company’s ethics, quality, and customer service.  


You can also check their Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating or look for reviews on  



#4. Ask for Personal and Professional Referrals 


Referrals are the lifeblood of many service-based businesses. Ask your friends and family who they use for their plumbing needs. If your neighbor mentions a plumber they use, or if a company is recommended several times, they have likely worked hard to earn those referrals and trust.   



#5. Ask Questions  


When you make the first phone call, pay attention to how you feel as you ask questions. Are they giving you the answers that will help you make the best decision?  


To get the most information about their company and services, describe your issue and concerns in as much detail as possible.  


Things to ask a plumbing company include: 


  • How many years of experience do they have?  
  • Do they have proof of license, insurance, and registration?  
  • Will they get the correct permits if required by the city?  
  • Do they have a specialty? 
  • Do they warranty their work? 
  • How long will the repairs take?  
  • Can you get a breakdown of fees?  
  • What are their payment expectations?  


Getting answers to all these questions will give you greater peace of mind throughout your plumbing project or repair and ensure that you have chosen the right company for you.

#6. Compare the Competition  


The beauty of the Internet is that you can learn a lot about a company before making that initial phone call. When searching, look for a plumbing company that delivers more than other companies in their industry.  


Before choosing a plumber, compare the competition. Are they active in their community? Do they regularly share their knowledge online or on social media? Do they have good reviews?  



#7. Find a Plumber BEFORE a Disaster Occurs  


Don’t wait to pick a plumber, do your research, and check for problems before they occur. That way you’ll have plenty of time to pick someone you trust and build a rapport with them over time.  


Having a trusted plumber come out and do preventative maintenance is much more cost-effective than waiting for an emergency. Plus, since you already have worked with them in the past, you’ll be able to have your favorite plumber on stand-by if a plumbing emergency ever occurs.
