When you need plumbing repairs, consider these factors

Published On: October 30, 2017Categories: Plumbing Repairs

If you’re a homeowner, you should be advised that the day will come when you’ll need emergency plumbing repairs. It would be nice to think that this would somehow escape you. Think again. Systems break, parts wear out, and after years of neglect some pipes will burst.

Even if you bring wonderful maintenance to your home, the previous owner may have neglected systems for years. So in order to be prepared, it’s a good idea to line up a plumber to call when that emergency arises.

Criteria for Choosing a Plumber for Emergency Plumbing Repairs

Not all plumbers are equal. In fact, not all plumbers engage in the same kind of work. Some, for example, specialize in roughing out new construction. Others work mainly in commercial or industrial settings. So don’t assume any plumber will do. That’s not necessarily true.

Here are five factors or criteria to consider when choosing a plumber.

Experience. How much experience does your prospective plumber have doing emergency plumbing repairs? A burst pipe can cause hundreds of dollars of damage per minute. That’s not when you want to find out your plumber lacks experience. Look for a plumbing company that’s been around a while.

The Plumbing Source has been in business since 1985. We have more than a dozen plumbers and plumbing techs with extensive experience in home emergency plumbing repairs.

Availability. Can you reach your plumber 24 hours a day, every day of the year? If not, you have the wrong plumber. Murphy’s law says that a catastrophe will take place after hours or on a holiday when no one is available. Can you imagine the nightmare of doing online research hoping to find a plumber when your system is falling apart? That’s a depressing thought. Have a plumber who offers service 24/7 on your speed dial. You’ll be glad you do when the unthinkable happens.

We have a staffed emergency plumbing service phone line that’s open 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Put this number in your phone: 877-768-7239. Now relax. We’re here when you need us.

Accessibility. In an emergency, speed is of the essence. Believe it or not, the closest plumber to you may not be the one who can arrive first. The Plumbing Source has a collection of “warehouse on wheels” trucks that are equipped with GPS (global positioning system) technology. So if you need a plumber in Bedford or a Shaker Heights plumber, our truck might be just around the corner.

Professionalism. Of course, you expect your plumber to be professionally trained. At The Plumbing Source, we go way beyond the basics. We make sure, for example, that we protect your carpet and floors when entering your home. And we make it a point to leave the area we’re working in cleaner than it was when we arrived. Not only that, we’ll take the time to explain your options and give you accurate and reliable cost estimates after assessing your situation in person. We’ll help you choose the best decision that’s within your budget.

A Track Record of Success. The Plumbing Source has an incredible record of customer retention. Once people experience how we work, they become our customers for life. We are very proud of the way we treat our customers. Many of them have become life-long friends.

We have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, and we’ve won the Angie’s List Super Service Award for 17 years in a row.

Yes, I suppose this blog post is a big “salesy.” We can’t help it. We want to be YOUR source for plumbing, heating, cooling and excavation work. Nothing satisfies us more than creating and delighting new customers, knowing that a new relationship exists that will be mutually beneficial for years to come.
