Choosing the Right Vista Plumber for Your Business

Experiencing plumbing issues can be incredibly stressful. You don’t want to trust anyone to come into your business. Hiring someone without the right expertise can cause more harm than benefit and make even a small job incredibly costly.

When looking for the right plumber for your business, you may want to consider the following credentials:

  • Qualifications: Plumbing problems can often have multiple root causes. Understanding commercial plumbing systems and how they interact with other elements of the building often only comes with experience and education. When looking at different plumbers, it’s a good idea to see what information you can find related to their:
    • Training: Plumbers often don’t require a college degree but do require apprenticeships or a trade school education. Plumbing apprentices will work and receive training under the guidance of a master plumber or journeyman. These apprenticeships often take between three and five years to complete. Any reputable plumber should have the proper training.
    • Licensure: Besides education, you will want to ensure that any plumber you work with has the proper licensure to operate in your state. Plumbing is a highly regulated industry to protect consumers, and obtaining a license often requires that the plumber provide the proper credentials, receive ongoing training, and have insurance that meets the minimum requirements.
    • Insurance: A plumber’s insurance policy should cover the business owner if the plumber accidentally damages the property or gets injured on the job. Requesting proof of insurance ensures that your business will be covered.
  • Services: While it may be tempting to think that all plumbers offer the same services, that is generally not the case. Some specialize in commercial or residential properties. Some offer limited services, while other companies are able to offer a full suite of services, ranging from major repairs to water lines to minor leaks or appliance hookups.
  • Research: Doing a little independent research is also a good idea when selecting a plumber. Looking at customer reviews or websites, such as the Better Business Bureau, can give you an idea of whether there are any major complaints against the plumbing company. This research can also show previous patrons’ satisfaction with the work completed.
  • Review the estimate and contract: Before committing with any plumbing company, request an estimate that addresses the scope of work and has the terms spelled out. Before entering into any work contract, review the terms carefully. A reputable and professional plumbing company will allow you to review these documents before deciding.
