Hiring a Company to Improve Your Home's Plumbing


You might have recently moved into a house with a very old and outdated plumbing system. This could become a huge problem for you and your family down the road if you do not take immediate steps to update and improve all of your home's plumbing. This will obviously be a very large job. Therefore, you should only trust a very experienced plumbing company to perform this task. So how do you go about finding a great plumber who will be capable of correctly updating all of the plumbing in your home? Here are some tips that you can use during your search.

1. Only hire a plumbing company that is licensed.

Unfortunately, there are many plumbers who do not have a valid license or insurance. This puts all of their customers at risk. Unlicensed plumbers will most likely have not passed all of the tests or received the training that is required to receive a plumbing license. This means that there is a greater possibility of an unlicensed plumber making a serious mistake that causes major damage to your home. Many people knowingly hire an unlicensed plumber to work on their home because it will cost them much less money. However, going the cheap route where your plumbing is concerned will inevitably come back to haunt you later. 

2. You also need to verify that the plumbing company is covered by insurance.

Hiring a plumbing company that is not covered by insurance could be financially devastating for you. A plumbing company's insurance will cover the cost of repairing any damage that they do while they are working on your home. Needless to say, it will be a bad situation if the plumber you hire damages your home and you later find out that he is uninsured. Do not take the plumber's word for it that he is licensed and insured. Ask to see their license and proof of insurance coverage. Make sure you look carefully at the date to see if both the license and insurance are valid. Do not let the plumbing company begin their work on your home until their license and insurance have both been verified.

3. Has the plumbing company handled a job this big before?

Improving all of the plumbing in your home is not the same as running a snake to unclog a toilet. It takes a great deal of skill and experience. Not all plumbing companies can handle jobs that are very large in scale. Therefore, you need to make sure that you clearly explain to the company what will be involved in the job you need them to perform. They can then decline the job if they will not be able to do it. This is much better than having the plumbing company come to your home and then discovering that they are not equipped to replace all of your plumbing.

4. Do you have any friends or family members who can recommend a plumber to you?

You should ask around to get some references for a plumber who can handle hot water heating repairs Toronto. The best place to get these references is from people who you already know and trust. Friends and family members will have no ulterior motives for recommending a specific plumber to you. You can get the names of some talented plumbers simply by calling the people you know. You should also consider talking to the people you work with. 

5. What is the plumber's rating with the Canadian Better Business Bureau (CBBB)?

You should also take a look at all of the info that the CBBB has regarding any plumber you are thinking about hiring. You will be able to see if the plumbing company has had any complaints or lawsuits filed against them. This is a great way to avoid working with a plumber who will be nothing but trouble. On the other hand, you will be able to see many plumbing companies on the CBBB website that have a very high rating. These are the companies that you should seriously consider hiring to improve the plumbing in your home. Call several plumbers to compare their rates.
