Finding the “Best” plumber comes down to taking the time to do some research including typing “Phoenix plumber reviews” into your favorite search engine and reading through several of them. You can also ask friends, family or co-workers for referrals. It’s best to be prepared before you find yourself dealing with a plumbing emergency. The following eight tips for finding the best plumbers in Phoenix will guide you to the right plumber for you.
Expertise with the Job That’s Needed
The experience of a plumber is based on credentials that range from apprentice to master plumber. If the plumber isn’t licensed, the chances are good that they won’t have the expertise to deal with your plumbing issue, no matter how basic. Being licensed means they’re registered with a governing system at the local and state level. If you hire a plumber that hasn’t earned the right credentials, you run the risk of their work not passing inspection, and you won’t be protected because you chose to hire them in the first place.
Reasonable Prices for Quality Work
You may find that some of the Phoenix plumber reviews you read through mention unfair pricing. After inspection, an experienced and reputable plumber will know what needs to be done and will be able to provide you with an accurate estimate. It’s always a good idea to interview two or three plumbers, asking each of them for estimates. While you don’t want to end up paying exorbitant prices for the repair, you should be wary of estimates that are significantly lower than the others. The cheapest plumbing service probably cuts corners to get the job done or installs inferior parts.
Friends Recommend Them
It’s always a good idea to ask family and friend for recommendations. The best plumbers in most communities get the majority of their business from word-of-mouth referrals. These are the plumbers you want to work with.
Community Recommends Them
Community recommendations are an excellent way to find a good local plumber. Local networking events, the Chamber of Commerce and even the PTA can be great places to get a referral. You should also visit your city’s Facebook community/neighborhood groups to ask for a recommendation. Most communities have a Facebook presence these days, and the members are typically very active and happy to refer or tell you who not to hire. You should also visit the website of the plumbing services you’re considering.
A+ BBB Rating
Check to see if the plumbing service you’re considering has had any complaints filed against them. Another great tip is to look for plumbers who have earned an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB). The rating is determined by information they’re able to obtain regarding the business, including complaints received from consumers. Based on the data gathered, they assign ratings that range from A+ to F.
Phoenix Plumber Reviews on Facebook
Another good source for Phoenix plumber reviews is Facebook, and it’s a great way to find out how they interact with their customers. Most Facebook pages for services like this also feature reviews, both good and bad.
Phoenix Plumber Reviews on Yelp
You can quickly get a good idea of which plumber to hire by checking out Yelp reviews. A Vendasta poll taken in 2016 found that 92% of consumers read online reviews (88% in 2014), and approximately 40% form an opinion after only reading two to three compared to 29% in 2014. Even more important, consumers today seem eager to share both good and bad experiences that they’ve had with services, including plumbing.
One of the most important things to look for as you read through Phoenix plumbing reviews is a history of excellent customer service. It’s important to work with a plumber who will communicate openly with you, is respected in the community, shows up on time, and has excellent work habits.
