Hello! Welcome to my blog. My name is Col. I live in Perth and I have a passion for construction. I am pretty useless when it comes to construction work so I tend to leave it to the experts. However, I find that there is nothing more pleasing than seeing a team of construction workers complete a job. Over the years, I have hired many different types of construction worker and they have all taken the time to chat with me. During these conversations, I have learnt so pretty interesting things which I will be exploring on this blog. Enjoy!

4 Things That Set Apart A Great Plumber From A Good One

Ethan Burton

There are several directories, online or otherwise, that you can use to find plumbers in your local area. You can also work with referrals from friends and family. You will no doubt find some good plumbers to choose from, but the real question is, what makes a plumber stand out from the rest?

1.     Broad Service Range

A plumber that is only well versed in new installations will be of no help to you when are in need of plumbing repairs and service. It is disappointing to call a plumber and have them come out to you, only for them to turn around and tell you that they cannot be of assistance because they lack the expertise.

A great plumber will have you covered whether you need to add a new faucet or you are dealing with a leaky one that needs fixing.

2.    Trustworthiness

Is your plumber someone you feel safe and comfortable letting into your property? Will you be at ease knowing that you don't have to worry about the plumber making away with something belonging to you, big or small?

A great plumbing service will ensure that they do a thorough background check on all its hires. Drug testing also goes a long way into ensuring that the company only hires staff that you, as the client, can trust.

3.    Upfront Pricing

Most plumbing issues, especially repairs, simply cannot wait. That you did not make allocations for such a situation in your budget will not change that fact. A great plumber will not try to take advantage of your situation by inflating their service rates. You also do not have to worry about getting any surprises in the form of hidden charges when you receive the final invoice.

4.    Testimonials and Referrals

What do other clients who have worked with the plumber have to say about their work? Any plumber can do some impressive advertising. A good plumber will be well within their right to freely share their selling points. An exceptional plumber, on the other hand, may not need to put as much effort towards self-advertising, as previous clients will gladly provide positive testimonials and refer other clients.

If you are going to hire a professional to take care of your plumbing needs, then it had better be the best that there is in the market. The highlighted considerations will help you in selecting the best from among good plumbers.
