Best Plumbers Servicing Kitchener-Waterloo – WRX Top 5

How to Pick The Best Plumber for the Job?

Picking the right plumber for the job doesn’t have to be tricky. In fact, you will find that you can easily “click” with the right tradesperson if you keep a few simple steps in mind. That being said, however, you do need to do your research carefully and make sure you pick someone who lives up to your standard.
Picking the right plumber can mean a lot of time, money, and headache saved on your part. Even if the prices aren’t as low as you had hoped them to see, choosing to work with the best suited tradesperson (as opposed to picking the cheapest one right off the bat) actually adds up to significant cost savings in the long run.

So what should we keep in mind? It’s always a good idea to shop around for a plumber when you are not in the middle of a plumbing emergency. It can be hard to make the right decisions if there is something urgent going on.
However, sometimes you just happen to find yourself in a pickle. If that is the case, then do try your best to be patient and calm during the selection process.

Whether in an urgent situation or not, the selection process does play out the same. You should always look at work history and experience as well as references. The more extensive the track record, the more confident you can be in your choice.
Probing further, it’s always a good idea to ask to see some of their previous work. In the age of smartphones, tradespeople can now snap some quick pictures of their projects on site for future reference.
An interesting point made by Mike Holmes comes to mind. A contractor is always proud of their hard work. Therefore it’s always a good idea to discuss what they have previously done and what their accomplishments are to date.
The older the projects that they are able to show you, the more clue you have about the longevity and quality of their work.
When looking at the specifics, you should check to see how neat and tidy the workmanship is. Attention to detail is key. For plumbing specifically, you can look at the strapping of the pipes and how they are supported.
The straps and supports themselves cost money, so you can use this as a point to measure if the plumber is taking a cheaper route and sacrificing durability of work. You should also look at the glue around the ABS joints as well as the soldering around the copper pipes.
Is it neatly done and looking clean? Or does it look hastily put together? You should also take a look at the slopes. If done properly, pipes will be sloped so as to not have stagnant water in them (which is particularly problematic if they happen to freeze).

Finally, you should always go with the tradesperson you feel like you have the most connection with. A skilled and professional plumber will always explain the job clearly and in detail to the customer in a way that they can understand (so not littered with technical jargon).
You should know exactly what you are paying for and you shouldn’t feel like you are being rushed into signing for the job. You should feel like you can properly communicate with the plumber and can fully understand what is going on and what you are going to be paying for.
