A lot of homeowners don’t have experience with plumbing, and usually are just looking to save some money, but what they don’t know is that hiring the wrong plumber to do the job is a recipe for disaster.

Going with Joe the plumber might not always be the worst thing there is, but when you end up with a burst pipe because he didn’t do something right or no reimbursement because he wasn’t licensed, then you will realise why hiring the right plumber makes all the difference. There’s just no substitute for someone who really knows what they are doing. Here are a few good reasons:

Hiring the right plumber saves you money

This one is often the biggest surprise to our customers, but it is the truth. The old saying goes that cheap services cost double because you have to do it again. With plumbing that is 100% true. A cheap company might look better in the beginning, but when you have emergencies because they made a mistake, you’ll end up calling real professionals and paying anyway. Getting the right plumber means it will get done right the first time.

Good plumbers are insured

Ever wonder what the biggest difference is between licensed and unlicensed plumber is? It certainly goes deeper than the price that you pay.

Licensed plumbers are insured, and that means you are protected. In the very unlikely event of a mistake or emergency, the insurance plans will be in place to help cover everything. If you go with the wrong guy who isn’t insured, then you will be on your own.

The right plumbers provide more than just good work
