1. Check Experience
Open up the phonebook or run a quick Google search, and you can easily find a dozen plumbers. With something like a slab leak, however, especially one that needs repiping, you really want a plumbing company that specializes in slab leak repair. Slab leaks require specialized knowledge, tools, and expertise, so it pays to hire someone that has these at their fingertips. We’ve been in business for many years, with the customer satisfaction record to back up our reputation.
2. Are They Licensed?
Remember, if you hire a “handyman” that seems to be willing to work cheap, you may be getting what you pay for--or not even that! A licensed plumber can ensure that all work he or she does is up to code, and you know that the plumber has attained a high level of professional competence. A handyman or non-licensed person who is attempting plumbing work may or may not know what they’re doing. You won’t know until the job is finished, and you may find that the work is not up to your standards. We are licensed plumbers, and are willing to answer any questions you may have about that.
3. Are They Used To Working With Insurance Companies?
While insurance companies vary, typical homeowners insurance does cover the cost of locating a slab leak and repairing any damage that the leak caused. Dealing with insurance companies, however, is much easier if you have a plumber who is used to filling in the paperwork and working with your insurer. Being knowledgeable about the insurance claim process is one of the advantages to hiring a plumber who is experienced in slab leak repair, vs. one that rarely deals with slab leaks.
4. Will You Get Your Money’s Worth?
When you hire a plumber, you want to ensure three things:
- the job is done right
- the job won’t have to be done again in a short time
- you get billed fairly and honestly
When you hire a licensed plumber with a good reputation, you can rest assured that these three goals will be met. If you hire someone just because they’re cheap, you may not get any of them. But your choice isn’t between a quality plumber and a cheap plumber--our prices for slab leak detection and, if necessary, repiping service are very competitive.
A slab leak is an unpleasant experience for anyone, but we’d hate for poor plumbing service to make your experience worse than it has to be. It pays to be choosy about who you call in an emergency. We’re here for you, and waiting to help you get back to normal life as soon as possible.
