If you’re going to hire a plumber than it stands to reason that you are going to make sure you hire the right one for the job. Whether you’re looking for a plumber in Ripley, Belper or Alfreton or somewhere else in Derbyshire, knowing the right questions to ask is a great way of ensuring that whoever you hire is up to the job.
What Can They Do For You?
Firstly it is a good idea to speak to them about their experience and skills. If you have a particularly big job to complete then speak to them about what you need and make sure they are up to the job. Ask them if they have completed a similar project before. If they have, they may even have photos to show you of before and after their work has been done, to help put your mind at ease that they will be able to do the job at hand.
When Will It Be Done?
Make sure to ask them when they will start the project and when they will be finished. Of course you should always allow for delays but you should get a rough idea of when you can expect to complete. You don't want to be waiting around for months before the job is finished. It is also an idea to ask them what provisions they have if it does run over, after all you don’t want it to go weeks over schedule if that can be helped by just a little forward planning.
What Guarantees Do They Offer?
If you’re hiring plumbers in Ripley, Belper or Alfreton or someone else locally to you to do the work, then it stands to reason you are going to want to make sure you get a good job and that it will last. It can be an idea to question them about what guarantees they offer and what would happen if the work they have carried out goes wrong after installation. Of course no one wants it to go wrong but this should give you peace of mind that if the worst was to happen then you will be well looked after.
Who Will Be Carrying Out The Work?
Just because the company has 50 years of experience doesn’t mean that the plumber who carries out the work will be the same. Ask them about which plumber will be carrying out the work for you and what their exact experience and qualifications are so you can make sure they have the skills to carry out the job for you up to scratch. If it is a boiler or heating related job, then make sure the plumber working on your job is Gas Safe Registered. You can check the Gas Safe Register yourself or ask them for their Gas Safe number.
What Do Their Customers Say?
A great way of knowing that you're going to get a great job is to check with the plumber if they have any testimonials. Many of them will display them on their website or have a portfolio of testimonials from happy customers. They may even have a few who would be happy for you to call them and check the quality of their work. Another great way to check on a plumber's work is to look on websites such as CheckATrade. These websites are very carefully monitored, meaning that all the feedback on them, good and bad, is from genuine customers from a genuine experience they have had with the company.
