How to Hire a Trusted Plumber

At some point, everyone needs to call a plumbing company for maintenance, repairs and/or replacements.

Before getting any work done by a plumbing company – or any contractor for that matter – your Sacramento plumbing experts at Beutler Air Conditioning & Plumbing encourage you to follow these 10 simple steps to ensure you’re hiring a trusted and qualified plumber.

  1. Avoid plumbing companies offering door-to-door repair services. Instead, seek out companies with longevity; they’re still in business for a reason.
  2. Before you accept any work, check references and seek referrals from your neighbors.
  3. Ask for the plumber’s license number and verify that number on the California State license board website ( www.cslb.ca.gov) to make sure it’s both valid and current.
  4. Ask about worker’s compensation and business liability insurance. Every company should carry full coverage for its employees.
  5. To guarantee you are receiving the best service, take the time to research companies and ask for estimates on your plumbing repair or maintenance before accepting an offer.
  6. Be sure you fully understand any estimates you receive. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
  7. Get everything in writing, from the cost estimate to the project timeline.
  8. Before the plumber begins work, make sure he or she obtains any necessary permits for the plumbing repair or installation.
  9. Ask the plumber about service guarantees. The plumber should always guarantee their work.
  10. Ask if special military or senior discounts apply.
