10 Important Questions To Ask When Considering a Torrance Plumber

April 7, 20219:45 am Published by : Categorised in:

Everyone wants to hire a plumber who can do an excellent job at a reasonable price. You will have a good chance of finding the best possible Torrance plumber by asking the following ten questions.

1. Licensed

We recommend one of the first questions you ask any plumber is if they are licensed. It proves they are a professional with the necessary training to complete any plumbing challenge you have.

2. Cost For Parts

It is essential to know how much a plumber charges for parts. It is common for a plumber to have all the parts they need to fix your problem when they arrive. Specialty parts could be a challenge and delay any services. You’ll want to know the costs involved with getting a plumbing part they do not have on hand.

3. References And Credentials

Ask for a plumber’s references and credentials. We believe this is important since a professional plumber should have extensive experience. Should a plumber not give you at least three quality references from clients willing to be contacted, they may not have the necessary expertise.

4. Specialties

Before choosing a plumber for a project, you should learn about their specialties. It is a way to make sure you are getting the best plumber for your specific plumbing project. When you take the time to get the best-suited plumber, it is a perfect way to make sure they will provide the best Torrance plumbing services.

5. Insured

Having insurance is an essential part of the credentials associated with a Torrance plumber. It protects you if an accident happens. You will not have to be concerned about the plumber defaulting or being required to pay unexpected costs.

6. Emergency Services

You will want to know if your plumber provides 24-hour emergency services. There are often two different plumber types—those who offer 24-hour emergency services and those who don’t. When offering 24-hour emergency services, these emergency plumbers usually do only emergency work. Plumbers who do not provide 24-hour emergency services will not come to your home after working hours.

7. Service Fees

A plumber should not have a problem telling you their service fees. Some plumbers will charge you a service fee for an estimate. It is a fee that is often non-negotiable. It is also vital you know if a plumber charges service fees just for visiting your home.

8. Travel Time

It is common for plumbers to charge for travel time to and from a job. It becomes expensive if a plumber is located farther from a job. You can say, “plumbers around my area will mean lower travel costs,” which is correct. They will know about all the local codes as well as the local building inspectors and more.

9. Response Times

You will want to know what is a plumber’s typical response time. It could be crucial if your problem is an emergency plumbing situation. Should a plumbing leak not be fixed quickly, it could easily destroy a home. Using a plumber available 24-hours a day could be the difference between a quick, inexpensive fix or water damage costing thousands to repair.

10. Service Contractors

It is also a good idea to know if a plumber’s service contractors are independently licensed. A plumbing contractor may have all the proper licenses, experience, and credentials. It doesn’t mean the people working for him also have adequate expertise or are even licensed. We recommend you learn if the plumber who will be performing the work on your project is licensed, insured, and has sufficient experience.

When you have plumbing work that needs to be done, you should contact the Drain Guys Plumbing And Drain Cleaning. They are licensed and have all the necessary credentials, experience, and knowledge you want to see in a plumber. Call them today to discuss any plumbing problems you might be experiencing.

Shavon was so awesome! She knew exactly what was wrong, was so personable, and knowledgeable. I felt like she was an old friend of mine. When it was time to unclog my pipes, the technicians made me just as happy. These guys worked so quickly and did not make a mess in my house like some of the other companies I have worked with in the past! They earn my seal of approval and recommendation.

A couple of friends recommended The Drain Guys when I mentioned I needed a water heater inspection. I called them and they come out really quickly and told me that I could repair the water heater. I was relieved because I thought that it was time to replace the unit. They saved me a lot of money

I was afraid to call a Redondo Beach plumber because I do not have a lot of extra money to spend. But, when I experienced a backflow issue, I had no choice. I am thankful they understood my financial situation and gave me such a great price. They were quick and professional on top of the great price.

I recommend this plumbing company hands down. Shavon is an industry professional and knows how to take care of her customers. No other Long Beach plumbing company has ever kept me informed and been so committed to my needs. It is a breath of fresh air, to say the least. The price was right and I could not be happier with my service. I definitely recommend The Drain Guys Plumbing and Drain cleaning.

I spoke to Shavon when I called The Drain Guys. She was professional and knowledgeable and seemed like she really wanted to help me. I appreciated that. She told me I needed a sewer line inspection, gave me a quote, and kept all her promises when the techs arrived at the job. Great company, the plumber arrived on time, and fixed my house right!
