If you are a homeowner and are faced with a plumbing emergency you might be in a panic state. That is why it is a good idea to have a few questions to ask the 24 hour plumber you choose before they get to your house. You should have these questions written down so in your emergency situation you don’t forget them. You should start by finding a Longwood emergency plumber. This is not because they can get to you quicker it also effects the cost, the longer the plumber has to drive the more it costs the consumer. That is why it is best to have a plumber that handles emergency plumbing repairs already stored in your phone. Make sure it’s one that has worked on your plumbing and knows your system but if not here are some questions to ask the plumbers you call:
- First confirm if the plumber is licensed and insured. Ask them what their licence number is and what their insurance policy limits are. If they hesitate to answer call another plumber because you want a Longwood plumber that is licensed with the state and has a decent insurance policy for protection. Mistakes do happen and if your plumber makes a mistake you want his policy to cover it.
- Ask what the plumbing repair will cost. Most of the time the plumber can give you an estimate over the phone for basic repairs however if the problem is in the walls or under the slab it is a lot harder to give an estimate but they should give you a worst case or best case scenarios on the cost of the repair.
- Next you should ask if they offer a warranty and how long is the repair guaranteed for. If they do not offer a warranty call another plumber. It’s also good to make sure if the plumber is personable and answers all of your questions and explains everything in detail.
