A Guide for Finding the Best Plumber for Your Home


A Guide for Finding the Best Plumber for Your HomeWhether you're dealing with a leaky sewer pipe or want to install low-flow showerheads, having access to a reliable plumber can be a life saver. Finding the best plumber, however, can be a little confusing. With so many choices available in the Calgary area, you may not be sure how to tell the difference between each service. Here is a short step-by-step guide that will help you find a professional you can trust to get a variety of plumbing jobs done quickly and professionally:

  1. Ask your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers for suggestions. Word-of-mouth recommendations hold a lot of value for a reason. When someone you know puts trust in a professional plumber, you know that trust has been earned with hard work and expertise.While finding the best plumber on a recommendation alone is not enough, it's a really good start. 
  2. Research all your options. There are a variety of resources that allow customers to file complaints against businesses that have poor workmanship or don't fulfill the promises in their advertising. By reading reviews and requesting information from the Better Business Bureau, you can ensure the professional you pick is honest and committed to customer satisfaction. 
  3. Increase your knowledge with the right questions. A quality plumber will be able to answer any question you have about a plumbing job with ease. Whether you want to know more about their training or the tools they use on the job, the more information you have the more likely you are to make the right decision. Troubleshoot your plumbing problem first for increased knowledge. 
  4. Get your quote in writing. A written agreement that lays out costs, supplies and timetables will protect both you and the plumber. Most quality professionals will include guarantees on their work because they have confidence in their own abilities. You can use this estimate to make final comparisons with other plumbers.
