Your toolbox is loaded and handy. You’ve done the research and maybe even watched a few “how-to” videos. Now, you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and tackle that pesky plumbing issue on your own – proud of your newly-acquired ability, and happy to save a few bucks in the process.
DIY home repair has its place. After all, calling in a professional for every minor fix can add up rather quickly. However, it’s important to know when to pull up the overalls vs. when to reach out to a qualified plumber.
Here are the primary factors a licensed and insured plumber bring to the table – beyond being licensed and insured, that is!
- Professional plumbers have industry knowledge. Not only do they bring years of experience to the table, they’re up-to-date on the latest plumbing techniques, materials, codes, and standards. They’re trained to work on routine maintenance, routine or emergency repairs, and new installations. Which means that whatever your plumbing need might be, you can trust that it will be taken care of properly.
- Plumbers can see and predict things that the average homeowner can’t. Everyone experiences a backed-up toilet from time to time. But while you might see it as not much more than routine annoyance, a qualified plumber will likely look further to discover the root cause, especially if the toilet in question is prone to clogging. Perhaps the toilet’s capacity is too small for household needs. Or maybe the sewer pipe is partially blocked. This insight can lead to a one-time solution that can you time, money, and headaches.
- As they say, time is money. When you hire a plumber, you save yourself the time it often takes going back and forth to home improvement stores for the right tools and materials. You also save yourself the and money often associated with trial and error fixes. Plus, when you hire the right plumber, you get a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. As in: if it isn’t fixed correctly the first time, they’ll return to correct any lingering issues at no additional cost to you.
