We recommend that every customer gets in touch with at least three or four different plumbers for a few different opinions. Ideally these different plumbers should all visit your property to assess the damage, provide you with different solutions and give you an estimated quote for how much they would charge with the repair or service. Obviously, if you are in an emergency, it is unlikely that you will have the time to do this, so in this kind of situation it may be best to get in touch with your trusted, local emergency plumber that you can contact as easily and quickly as possible (so note down our number for ease.)
Plumbers do not have a standard pay rate, so this adds to the importance of getting several quotes and opinions as rates can vary greatly. It is also important that you do not rush into going with one plumber over another. As work like this can be expensive and some plumbing work can take a good amount of time, it is important that you make the right decision for you and anyone else that you may live with. Discussing it with others in your household is also important, and we understand that it may take time for you to come to a final decision as decisions about your home and work being done to it are very important and impactful to your home and everyone in it.
