How to get plumbing done at any time of the day

Posted By: timothyharvard

Your little book beside the telephone has the phone numbers of everyone you need to know; the doctor, the vet, police and fire, but does it have the number of a 24 hour plumber in Pueblo?

A plumber is much more than just a guy whom you need when an emergency occurs. A plumber is also the guy who can help with the renovation of your bathroom or to install a new kitchen sink or garbage disposal. What is the best way to get the name of the 24 hour plumber in Pueblo into your little book?

First, you need names:

There are many plumbers, but rather than take a shot in the dark its best if you can whittle down the possibilities by asking friends, family members or neighbors for recommendations from any past experiences they may have had. Names are also available from those people who come into contact with plumbers often, such as building contractors, real estate agents or the local plumbing supplier. Always check and see if you have a Better Business Bureau, they can be a wealth of information.

What is it you expect?

When you are looking for a plumber, you need to know what you need him for. Are you going to start a bathroom or kitchen renovation, add a new bathroom to your house or do you have a problem that needs repairing? A 24 hour plumber in Pueblo is equipped to handle emergency jobs such as a burst pipe or seriously clogged drain. Plumbers who specialize in new construction or major renovation projects have different skills and work to a completely different schedule.

Qualifications:

Once you have a short list of plumbers based on your need you need to set them apart further by analyzing their skills. Most states require that a plumber be certified and licensed before he can offer his services. Call the local licensing board and check if your candidates are licensed and whether or not it is up to date. You can also check to see if there are any open claims against the plumber. Make sure your plumber is well insured, including workman’s comp and liability. If you are in doubt, ask to see a copy of the policies. Once again, contact the Better Business Bureau and see if there are any complaints and if so, what the nature of the complaint is.

Take the top three on your list and show them your project. Have each of them prepare an estimate, including all material and labor. Have them include the entire scope of work and specify what, if anything is not included. Get the terms of payment. It is also a good idea to have them specify the brand of components they plan on using; there are inferior products in the market that an unscrupulous plumber may try to use.
