Plumbers Longview TX: Tips For Hiring The Right Plumber

Plumbers Longview TXSome people like to think an honest face is enough reason to hire someone to do a job for them.  While an honest face is a good thing, choosing from among the plumbers in Longview TX based on their looks will get you into a lot of ‘hot water.’  There really is a better way – one that will get you a great plumbing job at a fair price.  Here’s what you have to do:

✓ Talk to friends, relatives and other repair professionals.  Unless you have a plumbing emergency that requires quick action, take the time to ask people you know and trust to find out who they’ve worked with and what the outcome was.  As for other repair professionals, if you have a long, professional relationship with your AC repairman or electrician, ask who they would trust to take care of plumbing problems in their own homes.  If you’re a longtime customers, they’ll be less likely to steer you wrong.

✓ Check the internet.  You can get a list of plumbers in Longview TX who are near you from the internet.  Once you’ve found a few, check for online reviews including those on the Better Business Bureau’s website.  After you’ve narrowed down your list to two or three plumbers, start making phone calls to get more information about each one.

✓ Ask questions.  Before you even invite plumbers to your home for an estimate, make a list of questions to ask them over the phone and keep the list handy so you can ask each plumber the same questions.  Find out how much they charge per hour, if you’ll get a written quote and a guarantee.  It’s also important to ask how long they’ve been in business and if they can provide references.

✓ Get in-person estimates.  If a plumber tells you exactly how much he’ll charge over the phone, without seeing the problem, there’s a good chance you’ll end up paying a lot more than that once the job is done.  Get all of the plumbers on your short list to come to your house to see what needs to be fixed and get detailed estimates in writing so that you can compare them to each other.
