WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A GREAT, PROFESSIONAL PLUMBING COMPANY

PROFESSIONAL PLUMBING COMPANY

Having to deal with plumbing issues can be a stressful experience. Especially if your service provider is not up to scratch. So when a plumbing problem rears its ugly head, you need a good, solid, professional solution to sort out your problem the first time around.

Getting the best professional plumbing company is not always an easy task. It’s a highly contested market, and many unqualified handymen also market themselves as the answer to all your low-cost plumping prayers.

So how do you find the best plumbing company to sort out your plumbing needs? Well, here’s a checklist of things to consider:

IS THE PROVIDER LICENSED AND INSURED?

A professional plumbing company or individual must be certified by an accredited body. This ensures that all rules and regulations are met, and quality and safety practices adhered to. The Plumbing Industry Registration Board or the Institute of Plumping SA are good places to start. Or you can trust the name South Africans have known and trusted since 1979 to always provide accredited, vetted plumbers. Yep, you know it – Drain Surgeon. For your total peace of mind, we also guarantee our workmanship and carry comprehensive insurance against “faulty workmanship” and “public liability”.

DOES THE COMPANY OFFER UP-FRONT QUOTES AND CLEAR PRICING?

A solid plumber or plumbing company will give you a pricing estimate before work commences. Whether it’s a home project or a commercial one, the contractor should do a thorough inspection of the concern to give you the most accurate quote possible. This avoids more costs being incurred later once the scope of the problem is accurately ascertained.

DOES THE PLUMBING COMPANY HAVE A GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE RECORD?

We think a plumbing company is only as good as its customer record. If the plumbing company doesn’t have a good reputation or good testimonials, steer clear. They might be inexperienced, or sorry to say, just plain dodgy. Don’t risk dealing with them even if the price looks great. If an issue develops afterwards and your calls go unanswered, you’ll have no foot to stand on.

In the same vein – you can tell a lot from a company or individual by how they present themselves. Is the vehicle branded and the person identifiable as a contractor for the company? Might sound like a lesser issue, but pride in their brand says a lot about the company’s culture and how serious they view their reputation. At Drain Surgeon, we realise that our brand is in fact our biggest asset. After our team of superhero plumbers of course.

DOES THE COMPANY HAVE QUALITY PLUMBING EQUIPMENT?

A professional plumbing company should have the correct tools and diagnostic equipment to handle the job correctly, no matter how complex. And the right tools ensure the job is completed quickly and thoroughly the first time. No funny fixes. Just right.
