Bathroom Renovations 101: Running New Pipes

When I decided to add a pedestal sink and claw foot tub to my bathroom, I had no idea how much new plumbing I had to run. Since I had never run pipes before, I wasn't sure how to do it properly. I did a lot of research before I started so that I could be sure that I was doing it right. As I was researching, I knew that it would be helpful to have all of the information I found in one place. That was the inspiration for this site. I hope that the plumbing resources help you with your next home improvement project.

4 Ways To Tell Your Plumber Is The Real Deal

When you are looking for a contractor, you want to find somebody you can rely on. Plumbers are no exception to the rule. Legitimate plumbers are there to help you, providing you with a service that you need. You want to select a professional plumber with care. These tips will help to ensure that the company you call is on your side. 

1. A good plumber asks all the right questions.

A good plumber does not waste time. He or she needs to know how the issue started and when you first experienced problems with your drainage system. Even over the phone, you can pick up on whether or not you find the plumber on the other end of the call to be a professional with experience in the area you are calling about. Secondly, don't be afraid to ask questions of your own if you are not sure about something. A good plumber will answer them for you, no problem.

2. A good plumber understands that you have concerns about their findings.

You may have heard about the old trick that a bad company might create a problem that is much more serious than it really is. Generally, you should ask lots of questions if you aren't sure about something. Additionally, a good plumbing company will understand if you want to ask for a second opinion. After all, this is your house or place of business and you may have concerns.

3. A good plumber will let you see the evidence.

When a reputable plumber shows up at your door, he or she is prepared to show you what the problem is. If you have a drainage issue that requires more than the basic amount of work, the plumber is likely to show you a video of what the inside of your pipes look like. This helps you build a trusting relationship with the plumber.

4. A good plumber has a good reputation.

Reputation matters, more now than ever before. When you call a plumbing company, make sure that you use the number listed for them on their own website, but also make sure to Google the company for additional results. This allows you to find a reputable plumber you can count on.

A good plumber is there to help you, whether you need your drains cleaned or you have a serious concern. Got plumbing questions? Call a local plumber to learn more about your options.
