Picking the Wrong Plumber can Cost you Dearly
If about three out of four damage to buildings is caused by moisture, it’s no wonder many of us fear moisture damage when buying a home. Choosing a serious plumber is one of the most important decisions you make regarding your home, and the following advice can help you avoid getting ripped off.
Research the market and collect offers
You probably know someone who has had good experiences with plumbers in your area. Talk to your friends and acquaintances and do your own research. You should also be able to find online procurement services where you can leverage the market to get an affordable price.
It is important to remember that your bathroom is the room where the greatest number of professionals are involved. It is imperative that their work overlap according to the building codes, which is why you should choose professionals who have a good understanding and experience of each other’s work.
Choose a total supplier
A total renovation of your bathroom involves various activities. You must get help from one electrician, a tiler, a carpenter and a plumber. The absolute best solution is to order the entire project through a plumbing company that can assist you throughout the renovation process. Choosing a partner to take on AZ’s project allows you to relax, let the experts coordinate the work, and simply communicate with one contractor instead of several.
For instance, Bad & Vvs, a popular plumbing company in Bergen, Norway, offers such total renovations and has many partners who regularly use them for their renovation jobs. They partner with the best carpenters, painters and tilers in Bergen and instill confidence in their customers with their wide range of expertise. Clients also really appreciate this because it means that they only have to have a dialogue with one company and not with 5-10 different contractors.
Choosing a total supplier usually puts you in safer hands than choosing an individual contractor for each part of the job.
Don’t forget the signature
My final advice, but definitely one of the most crucial, is to make sure you have a written contract that explains in rough detail what needs to be done and what price you’ve agreed upon. Unfortunately, many people are too lazy or indifferent to the contract, and only about one in three agree on a price before the plumber starts work. Is it any wonder that there are many differences of opinion?
A good plumber will bring the contract to you, but if the plumber you hired doesn’t, it’s essential that you take responsibility. After all, you are the one who has to pay for the consequences if your chosen plumber does not deliver what has been promised.
