So many plumbing horror stories end with the person saying, “I thought he had insurance!”

When homeowners need a plumber during an emergency, the chaos can lead to them choosing a plumber that isn’t as experienced in plumbing skills or the use of tools as they hoped. One of the best ways to avoid any confusion is to ask for licensing and insurance right away. However, asking isn’t enough. The homeowner must see a copy of each item. This is the only real way to know the homeowner is in the right hands before the hiring process is complete. 

The best part about the insurance policy is that it covers all involved in the the accident. All professional plumbers will have this policy as an added safety cushion if unforeseen problems occur during repair or repiping

Don’t Forget About Online Reviews

Sure, credentials are one of the first things to ask the professional about. However, online reviews are great to read before the homeowner even calls the professional. Many people these days love to read reviews about a business before deciding to visit them. Customers want to know that their time is valuable to the plumber.

When reading the online review, it’s essential to read a few five-star reviews, a couple of one-star, and maybe one review that falls in the middle somewhere. Doing this gives the homeowner a relatively clear indication of how the company treats its customers. 

What About Service Memberships?

An added perk that some professional plumbers offer is a service membership. This is something typically offered as a loyalty program.

Some common things offered in a service membership are: 

  • Coupons
  • Priority scheduling
  • Rewards program

If these things sound nice to the homeowner, they should ask the company about a possible program before hiring them for the job.
