Residential plumbing issues can be a nightmare for any homeowner and anyone living, or even visiting, inside the home. Because residential plumbing issues can start off as such small occurrences and then subsequently grow into major issues that cause both overwhelming stress on a homeowner and a significant amount of expensive damage to the actual home. That’s why you should get professional help as soon as possible if you notice even the slightest problem with your home’s plumbing.
Leaky faucets can actually waste 2,160 gallons of water a year if you don’t have that problem fixed in a timely fashion. You need to know when to call your plumber and have them inspect your home and fix any issue with your home’s plumbing. Finding a plumber can be quite difficult if you’re not sure of where to look, or, more importantly, what to ask.
Here are a few plumbing questions to ask prospective plumbers before you have them come into your home and resolve any issues.
Can I see Your License?
This is the most importance question when finding a plumber, or any contractor that’s going to perform major repair jobs in your home, because it’s a great way to separate the scam artists from the professionals. Sadly, because of the Internet, people are able to impersonate professional servicemen and women more than ever before. Someone can design a website that looks completely legitimate and then offer exceptional rates, talk to you over the phone, exchange financial information, and be off with your cash. That’s why you need to do everything you can to ensure they are actually a professional and licensed plumber. If they can’t provide you with their license, you can go ahead and assume they’re not legitimate and look elsewhere for professional assistance.
How Long Does Each Job Usually Take?
Obviously every situation is different and you can never really tell exactly how long a certain plumbing fix is going to take, but if the plumber in question admits to taking days to complete even rudimentary plumbing issues, you should think about finding help somewhere else. It’s important that you get your plumbing issues taken care of as soon as possible, but that doesn’t mean you should work with unqualified people.
