Choosing the Right Contractor!

This week’s topic is regarding Plumbing Contractors! We’ve all experienced the plumbing contractor who comes out and says that they can do this and do that and of course is it always under your budget.. UNTIL the bill comes! Somehow the bill is much more than you discussed, the contractor didn’t show up as promised and has left you feeling taken advantage of. Not to mention your questioning thought of, “Is this contractor even licensed?”

Choosing Best Plumbing Services as your Plumber shouldn’t be a hard decision.  Not only will the above not happen, but we will make sure you are pleased with our services and are left with a feeling of, “Wow, what a great company!”

Here are a few tips to think of when interviewing Contractors:

1 . Hire only licensed contractors. Best Plumbing Services is Licensed and Bonded.  St. Lic. 921858
2. Check a contractor’s license number online at www.cslb.ca.gov .
3. Get at least three bids. Written and dated.
4. Get three references from each bidder and review past work in person. A reputable company will be glad to provide this at any time.
5. Make sure all project expectations are in writing and only sign the contract if you completely understand the terms. If the contractor makes you feel uncomfortable, there is probably a reason behind this.
6. Confirm that the contractor has workers’ compensation insurance for employees.
7. Never pay more than 10% down of $1,000, whichever is less. Always track your deposits or progress payments.
8. Don’t let payments get ahead of the work. If the contractor wants money to begin the next process, something is wrong.
9. Keep a job file of all papers relating to your project, including all payments. The contractor should also have records of this, ask!
10. Don’t make the final payment until you’re satisfied with the job. And be sure to ask about warranty work!
We hope to hear from you soon!
