Your property, whether residential or commercial, is fully-reliant on operational plumbing. The plumbing system is arguably one of the most important operations within a home or business, making it vital to stay on top of regular maintenance and repair. Sometimes, your plumbing needs require a more skilled level of service than what your everyday plumber can offer.
When you have extensive plumbing repairs, replacements, conversions, or remodels on the agenda, a master plumber is the proper contractor to call. But be very careful who you hire for your master plumbing work; there are thousands of scammers and fly-by-the-night plumbers who advertise as master plumbing professionals, but in fact, are not.
Continue reading to learn the top 3 most important attributes to look for in a qualified master plumber, as well as, where to begin your search.
❶ License and Insurance
If you want to make sure you are hiring an actual, state-licensed master plumber, you need to be prepared to ask them for their license number. In fact, it is state law for plumbers to display their plumbing license numbers in all of their marketing, including their websites, coupons, ads, and more. If a master plumber is state-licensed as they should be, they are not hesitant to provide it, whether upon request or through advertising their services. If you ask, and they give you a bunch of excuses, move onto the next candidate.
Even if you find a state-licensed master plumber, it is still important to consider length of experience and extent of knowledge. For small work, like appliance installations and replacements, a beginner master plumber might be the right fit, but for more larger-scale or serious work, you probable want someone who has decades of experience under their belts. Look for a state-licensed master plumber who has at least 10 years of hands-on experience for best skills and knowledge.
In addition to licensing and experience, you want to know that their past clients are happy with their service. The best way to know this is to read customer reviews and testimonials. You can also directly ask the master plumber for actual referrals that you can contact and ask about their experience with the contractor. Keep in mind that plumbing can be an unpredictable and complex industry, so it is common to see a few bad or negative reviews. However, more than a few can be a red flag that they are problematic in some way or another.
