Looking for a Local Plumber?

If you find yourself in an emergency situation in which suddenly your kitchen gets flooded, the bathroom gets blocked or a pipe bursts, it is unfortunately the moment to start looking for a plumber.

A plumber should be brought in to your house as soon as possible to fix the trouble, the problem is that finding a good plumber in cities like London, Nottingham or Manchester can sometimes seem like an impossible task.

Although plumbing is nowadays one of the most successful trades, finding a good one is difficult as prices vary so much and that can really hit your pocket.

So here are 4 tips to help you set up an action plan for these circumstances and find a professional who will do the job right, and at a fair price:

Research Potential Plumbers

If you ask friends and neighbours you should be able to get a recommendation. Getting some referrals of what work they did with the average price and how long ago would be a good start. Reputation is everything when trying to find a tradesman and things like having a plumbers number already located with their contacts details on a fridge magnet will save your day in a crisis situation.

Check your plumbers reviews and Credentials

Check the plumbers training and/or experience, if they are licensed and if they are members of any reputable trade organisations. You want to be at least partially assured they have solid experience and proper training.

Enquire Thoroughly and Closely

I would suggest you to enquire with the professional about your particular problem. Ask them to explain what they think is wrong and how they are going to fix it. Don’t be afraid to ask direct questions. A good plumber will happily answer and explain, and won’t be evasive about the work required.

Get a Quote from your Plumber

Once the plumber is located first ask for a written estimate before work commences. This will give you some insights and guidance of the costs for the complete plumbing project.

And finally bear in mind two things, firstly, plumbing services are not cheap and most plumbers have a minimum time fee which doesn’t include the materials needed; plus an initial estimate is not a fixed price as it is possible that the final invoice could be different.
