Ensure That You Hire The Right Company For Your Plumbing Needs

by Pam on August 28, 2017

For homeowners everywhere, it seems the costs of maintaining the home, particularly as the home gets older, continues to spiral skyward. It also often seems that once one situation is taken care of, another issue arises that requires attention. From the deepest recesses in the cellar to the peak of the rooftop, regular maintenance must take place, and issues that come up that can affect the comfort or safety of the residents quite naturally should take precedence over other projects that may be currently underway.

One function in the home that can use regular maintenance, but is most often overlooked until problems, or worst yet, emergencies occur, is with the home’s plumbing. Some elemental, non-urgent situations, such as a slowly dripping faucet that proves to be an annoyance more than anything else, can be looked at and perhaps repaired by the homeowner themselves. Larger-scale and more extensive plumbing issues that can arise in homes of any age or size will more than likely need to be evaluated and repaired by a professional, licensed plumber. In some cases, one moderate problem that arises in the plumbing may very well be the result of bigger, more serious issues taking place down the line, or otherwise out of the layman’s view. A professional plumber can, if necessary, make a comprehensive analysis of the situation at hand, issues outside of the reason they were called, and recommend repairs necessary that will get the whole system fully safe and operational again.

If you live in Calgary and need some plumbing work done in your home, there are a considerable number of Calgary plumbing companies you can call. If you want to ensure that you hire the right company for your plumbing needs, there are some important factors you may want to consider when it comes time to make that call. A few of these factors include:

Experience. It always pays to look for a company that has been in the industry and area for a long time. A fine example of such a company is Quicker Rooter Plumbing & Heating, who have been in business in Calgary for 25 years and counting. There must be a very good reason why companies have stayed in business a long time, after all.

Services provided. High quality, trusted plumbing companies will specialize in a very wide array of services the homeowner could use help with. This can include, but by no means is limited to, drain cleaning; plumbing repairs in every area of the home; installation and replacement of sinks, toilets, hot water heater tanks, drains, faucets, and toilets; and even heating services (gas fittings, humidifiers, furnace repair and installation, and BBQ and gas stoves).

Emergency services. As it always seems like emergencies happen at the most inconvenient times, make sure the plumbing company offers 24/7 emergency and weekend plumbing services.

Qualification and certification. Make sure that the company and the plumbers are bonded and insured, and if you have any questions, check to make sure the plumbers are qualified for the job you need to be done. In addition, checking if the company is an Accredited Business with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) can be a very good gauge of their reliability and competency in the industry, with quite naturally an A+ rating raising them to the highest level of companies customers can trust and rely on.
