How to Choose the Right Plumbing Company

Are you having plumbing problems in your home?

Are you unsure of which plumber to call for your plumber needs?

Are you having trouble knowing the differences between plumbers in your area?

There are many plumbing companies in the Ann Arbor area, and many offer the same services. So how do you choose? Is there a reason why some offer different costs and rates? There are several resources to help you when choosing a plumber.

Look to Friends and Family for Suggestions

It’s possible that your family or friends have hired a plumber at some point. Reach out to them for recommendations or suggestions. They may have someone in mind who they’ve had a nice experience with. It never hurts to ask around.

Online Reviews

Secondly, online reviews can be very helpful. If people consistently have good experiences with a certain company, it will show in the reviews. Both quantity and quality are important. Look for the good and the bad that people have said about the company. If the reviews are consistently good, you may have yourself a plumber!

Licenses/Insurance

Call or talk to your plumber in person and make sure that they have the correct license to do what they do. Plumbers are required to have a state license. An unlicensed plumber or a friend might take shortcuts, which could give you problems in the future. You should also check to see if the plumber has proof of insurance. For your protection, ensure that they have general liability and workman’s compensation coverage. Our technicians are all licensed. We’ve been a family owned business in Ann Arbor for 29 years.

Age of the Business

As with any business, it’s important to consider the age of the business. The amount of time they’ve been around can tell you a lot about them and their stability. The longer they’ve been around the better. If they’ve only been around a very short amount of time, they may not have had much experience.
