After sorting through contractors, carpenters,
electricians, architects and landscape designers, we finally
narrowed down the crew that we wanted working on our home's new
addition. But we still needed to find a licensed plumber or plumbing
contractor who could do the job right, unlike the last one.
Of the four licensed plumbers we brought out to
our property, all seemed knowledgeable and realistic in their
expectations. But one, unbeknownst to us, had already worked on
several houses in our neighborhood, and was even the licensed
plumber who worked on the addition that was built on the property
two blocks away from us. If we were to get a plumber from the
current lineup, it certainly seemed like this was our guy.
Admittedly, he didn't promise the lowest price or the best time
frame, but his experience in our area gave us the reassurance that
he had the most realistic expectations for these concerns.
Plumbing problems from ice cold showers and
freezing pipes to basement flooding and serious leakages - tend to
sneak up on us at the most inconvenient time. Chances of plumbing
emergencies are considerably higher in homes with poor plumbing
maintenance, but unfortunately emergencies have also been known to
occur in homes that have diligently maintained their plumbing.
