How to Find a Good Plumber Whether your project is big or small, the wrong plumber will not just cause disruption for you and the entire household, but it can also bleed your wallet dry. So instead of just hiring someone randomly, it’s always worth the time doing some research to ensure the work goes on as smoothly as possible. These are six ways of finding the right plumber: 1. Personal Recommendations
A Simple Plan: Plumbers
The best method of finding a good plumber is seeking recommendations from people you know. Ask them all – friends, neighbors, relatives, coworkers – if they know someone who’s done a good job for their plumbing before. If you know other tradesmen like builders or electricians, ask them as well. Let the plumber know who referred you and they might just offer you a discount!

2. Tradesman Schemes Check out tradesmen schemes that specifically vet tradesmen for their demonstrated skills. Trustmark and Buy With Confidence are just two examples of these bodies which are run either by government-approved operators or in conjunction with Trading Standards. Their websites typically have searchable databases of plumbers where you can just type your postcode and see who are registered in your locality. 3. Review Websites and Social Media As usual, the Internet is there to make your job a lot easier. Small businesses and independent tradesmen often don’t have the money to advertise in traditional media. Instead, they will rely on such websites as Top Tradespeople and CheckATrade, which collect reviews posted by their past clients. Basically, this is an expanded referral search. Certainly, the social media can help you too. A lot of people today are using the social media to share their experiences with different tradesmen or professionals they have worked with. If the plumber you’re considering has a Twitter or Facebook account, check their feed and pay attention to how they interact with the people. 4. Phone Estimates Even if it’s not the most important crucial for selecting a plumber, your budget is still important. If possible, get at least three price estimates over the phone from three different plumbers; if a quote is particularly high or low compared to others, ask them why. They may not give you an exact figure until they’ve personally seen the job, but you can at least get a good picture of who’s the most and least expensive among your choices. 5. Client References Don’t be afraid to ask for client references; when they give you some, call them and have a little chat with them. The people who can give you the most accurate picture of what plumbers are like are the people who have actually hired them.
