There is no shortage of plumbing companies offering their services online and in local newsletters, but make sure to do your research before commissioning your next plumbing project.
Research cited in plumbingtrademagazine.co.uk suggests that consumers may not be doing their due diligence when selecting a plumber.
Incredibly, a study by the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) suggests that when making the final selection for a job, many customers will choose a plumber based on price. Have they never heard the term, “you get what you pay for”?
At Synergy Plumbing Services, we believe in competitive rates, but if the price sounds too good to be true, then it usually is. So, what are some of the best ways to source a reliable plumber?
Choose a Plumber that is recommended by friends
If someone you know recommends a plumber based on previous performance, then this is a good indicator that they can start and complete a job as asked. Of course, you should bear in mind that your project may have different requirements, and you should also make sure that there is no conflict of interest that may account for the friendly recommendation, but word of mouth spreads, and good plumbers are hard to find, so if someone comes highly recommended, then this is a great starting point.
Choose a Plumber that is well reviewed
Having one great recommendation does not show how the plumber works across other projects. For a better idea of reliability and consistency, make sure to check out the plumber of social media. Are they well reviewed on Facebook? Have people taken to Google to say good things? Make sure to read both the positive and negative reviews before forming a balanced opinion.
Choose a Plumber than is qualified
Plumbing is a highly skilled profession and should not SIMPLY be undertaken by anyone that owns a set of tools. Look out for a plumber such as Synergy Plumbing Services that are Gas Safe registered, and able to work on a variety of different boilers. Equally, make sure your potential plumber is insured.
