No matter where in your home you are at the moment, you wouldn’t have to walk very far to come in contact with water. That’s because it’s everywhere, even in places you can’t see it.
Now, how far would you have to walk or drive to come in contact with your plumber? Hold on a second: did we hear you say that you don’t HAVE a plumber? One that you can trust absolutely for great work, on-time service, honest value, and your guaranteed satisfaction for jobs large and small?
Well, if that IS what you said, then you should take steps now to find that one special plumber you can connect with, no matter what the need or time of day. That one special plumber that connects with you, too, by listening to your concerns, understanding your priorities, and making you feel important to their business.
You see, the best time to hire a plumber is before you really need one. That way you can take your time, seek information from and about more than one local plumber, and let them earn your business rather than you simply bestowing it – in an emergency – on someone you know little or nothing about.
And while you undoubtedly have you own very specific concerns and selection issues, we at LBA Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing to include the following items in the search for your family plumber.
1. Are they licensed to work in your state, i.e., Kansas and Missouri?
2. What kinds of insurance do they cover, and exactly how do those coverages protect you and your home?
3. Are they members of the Better Business Bureau and, if so, what is their current status?
4. Do they provide estimates in writing and explain exactly what’s included and what it isn’t?
5. Do they warranty their repair work and, if so, for how long?
6. If permits are required, will they obtain them on your behalf?
