It is important that when you are hiring a Greenville plumber that you consider the following things:
1. Make sure the Greenville Plumber is licensed. There are many contractors out there that either won’t or can’t get licensed. They are a harm to you, because they could very well do damage, as well as the plumbing profession as a whole.
2. Make sure they are Bonded and Insured. Not only is being licensed important, but so to is being bonded and insured. Insurance to protect against potential damage and a bond to insure that they do what they say after signing a contract.
3. Do they have references that they are willing to provide? Any contractor, especially a plumbing contractor, should have references. This will indicate to you that they have provided a service that others are willing to share and refer you to.
4. How do they present themselves upon arrival? Most plumbing companies have dress codes. Th is means that the tech should arrive with a uniform that clearly states on the shirt as to what company they work for. A tech dressed in ripped jeans with a baggy t-shirt is a huge red flag! If they don’t care about how they appear, how are they supposed to care when they’re addressing your problem?
5. Do they give you a price upfront? You should never allow a tech to perform services without first asking for and agreeing to the price.
6. Do they try to sell you on things other than that which brought them to your house? A lot of plumbing companies in the area will try to upsell you on anything and everything, not necessarily products/services that you need, but those that will get the overall ticket price up in order to justify their trip.
7. Do they clearly and succinctly explain the problem and how they will adress it? Th is is very important. If you do not know what the actual diagnosis is, how are to know for sure that the root of the problem is fixed?
8. Are they polite as well as clean? A polite tech will go a long way in making this time a pleasant experience. A plumbing issue is bad enough that they problem doesn’t need to be compounded by a impolite tech. Do they also clean up their work area? This may include replacing dirt etc.
