5 Signs of a Great Plumber in Arlington VA
If you’re in need of a quality plumber in Arlington VA, you might be like most people and honestly have no idea what constitutes quality. Few people have any direct experience with plumbing, plumbers, or even leaks in the pipes in their home. They could have someone come in who has no clue what they’re doing, but they might sound as though they do.
That’s why we put together 5 clear signs that the person you hire for plumbing in Alexandria VA and other parts of the area is going to know what he’s doing and get the job done right … the first time.
Sign #1: He’s licensed.
Please don’t misconstrue the pronoun here; ‘he’ is simply a term and there are female plumbers, but more than 95 percent are actually men, so it’s an easier way to talk about it. That being said, when a plumber is licensed by the State of Virginia, he’s had to go through all sorts of test to make sure he knows what he’s doing.
Sign #2: He has direct experience.
Anyone today can claim that they have experience, but that doesn’t make it so. A plumber worth his weight should be able to highlight documentable experience (the kind you could easily verify).
Sign #3: He’s been doing this for years.
There are so many aspects to plumbing that someone who’s only been apprenticed for a couple of years won’t have the kind of experience you deserve. Make sure the person or team you hire has been doing plumbing work for years.
Sign #4: He’s responsive.
How many times have you called a contractor, left a message, and never received a return call? Sure, they might be busy, but that’s no excuse for not calling you back. You deserve a plumber who is responsive every single time.
Sign #5: He’s reasonable.
When it comes to hiring a plumber in Falls Church VA or anywhere else in the area, make sure his prices are in line with other quality and qualified plumbers. If the quote sounds really low, there’s a reason and it won’t have anything to do with offering you a great deal. If it’s too high, you can do better.
