In Reading, Pennsylvania there are multiple plumbers and heating and cooling specialists to choose from. But picking a plumber or HVAC specialist isn’t as easy as opening up the phone book. Here are three things you should look for when considering a long term relationship with a plumber.
They are licensed and insured!
Before you let a plumber or HVAC specialist into the house make sure they are licensed and insured. A professional plumber should be licensed with the state and has insurance in case they do any damage to your home. A professional plumber that is licensed and insured has taken the steps to protect your home and the craft. There are a lot of shady plumbers and HVAC specialist out there who will woo you, come into your home, take your money, and leave you left hanging out to dry. If they are licensed and insured you know they are serious about their job and their relationship with you. At the Plumbing Works we are both licensed and insured.
They are experienced and have the references to prove it!
Having a license and insurance means they are serious about the work and protecting their customers. But having a license or insurance doesn’t mean they are a good Reading, Pennsylvania plumbing or HVAC company. It is also important that they have experience in the field and are continually perfecting their craft with training. You should also have access to their references. If their past customers had a good experience, and keep using them, they are probably a keeper. At The Plumbing Works we hold weekly training sessions and our technicians have years of experience. We also have a number of glowing references available at our website.
They are never late for your date!
When plumbing problems arise they are often an emergency. So you can imagine how stressful it can be when multiple people are calling with emergencies. Plumbing and HVAC specialists with experience know how to delegate the right people to the right job, know how much time each job should reasonably take, and come with the right tools and equipment to get the job done. A good plumber should be able to give you a date and time that they can be at your home and then show up on time. At the Plumbing Works we offer same day service and flexible scheduling that focuses on your convenience. We also offer 24 hour Emergency Service when you need it.
