What should I look for when hiring a local plumber?

When you’re stuck in a emergency situation and you need a local plumber right away, what should you check before making the call? Elsea Plumbing would like to share three important points you should take into consideration before hiring any plumber.

Does the Plumber have a valid Plumbing License?

It is vital that when considering to hire a plumber in your area that they are fully licensed locally in your area. This ensures that you are protected if any errors are made on the plumber’s part. Plumbers in Arizona are required by law to have a contractor’s license. Do not hire anyone that doesn’t have one.

Is the Plumber Insured?

Plumbers should be insured and possibly bonded. While it is very unlikely an experienced plumber will make major mistakes, hiring a plumber who is licensed and bonded protects you allowing the plumber to pay for any damages caused to your home by their negligence. This would also protect you if an injury occurred. A plumber’s accident history is publicly available and should be checked if you feel unsure about hiring.

Is the Plumber Experienced?

It is important to hire a plumber with experience, so you know that they can adequately do their job. Don’t be afraid to ask the plumber questions like: How long have you been in the business? Are all your staff licensed as well? Do you have any references from previous jobs? Don’t just assume that they are adequate to hire, make sure that they are the person for the job.
