Finding the right local plumber is not always easy. With so many service providers in the market, you can get overwhelmed when deciding. However, a little due diligence may be all you need in order to find what you’re looking for.
Are You a Licensed Contractor?
Most states have a licensing process for plumbers, but each has different requirements.
Many states offer a place on their website where you can search for the license number and verify the contractor’s license.
What Can I Expect The Total Cost To Be?
Before hiring a plumber, talk with at least 3 and have them provide you with written estimates. In many cases, plumbers will be able to provide you with an onsite estimate after they have a chance to assess the job.

Here are just a few of the most important questions to ask your local plumber.
