The experts at Hamm & Sons Plumbing understand how hard it can be to find a plumber that you can trust. Trust is built up over years of providing quality service with a customer-first attitude. We understand that when you call a plumber, you are inviting someone into your home or place of business, and you want to be assured that they will be experienced, professional and trustworthy.
There are a few key things to keep in mind when looking for a reputable plumber.
In the State of Indiana, all plumbers and their apprentices are required to be licensed, and should provide their license number to you upon request. If they do not have a current plumber’s license, they are operating illegally in the State of Indiana. You can check to see if a plumber’s license is current by checking the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency website at https://www.in.gov/pla/plumbing.htm.
In order to get a plumbing license, plumbers must meet rigorous training standards, including 4 years of classroom instruction and no less than 7600 hours of direct, on-the-job training. Both a written and a practical test are required before an apprentice can earn the rank of plumber.
When you hire a licensed plumber, you know that you are getting an experienced professional that has had years of experience and training.
Similarly, insurance protects both you and the plumber from damages or injuries related to a plumbing contractor’s work.
When you invite someone into your home to perform plumbing work, you want to make sure that they are not a felon or a sex offender. Make sure that the plumbing company you choose cares enough about your safety to perform background checks on its employees.
Review sites like Angie’s List can help you make sure that the people who have hired a plumber in the past have had overwhelmingly positive experiences. If the reviews are mixed, or if there are a few bad reviews that seem to follow a pattern, this may be an indication that you should continue your search for the right plumber.
A good plumber’s reputation is built slowly over years of providing exceptional service. Plumbers that have been in business for decades have a long history can be easily reviewed. Plumbers that have been in business longer have a better chance of having the experience and the large parts inventory you need to ensure that you can get the work done in the same day.
Review sites like Angie’s List collect the reviews of many people, so that you can see what other people’s experience has been and if there are any troubling patterns of bad service. A few bad reviews can provide an indicator of what you might expect when inviting the plumber into your home or business, especially if those bad reviews follow a pattern that indicates shoddy work or missed appointments.
The good news is that the Internet provides you with a wealth of resources to investigate plumbers before making your hiring decision. You can investigate the plumber’s website to determine their years of experience, services, hours of operation, and licensing, bonding and insurance status. Review sites offer additional information, and provide a real-world view of what clients actually experience when they hire a plumber.
At Hamm & Sons Plumbing, we believe you deserve a qualified, professional plumber that will be prompt, courteous and will get the job done right the first time. By keeping a few key questions in mind when selecting your plumber, you will increase your chances of getting a plumber you can trust.
