Finding a plumbing contractor in Pueblo

The book that sits close to your telephone probably has the phone numbers of all the people you need to know; the doctor, vet, police, but does it contain the number of a plumbing contractor in Pueblo?

A plumber is not just a guy that you need when there is an emergency; a plumber can help with your bathroom renovation or he can install a new sink or garbage disposal in your kitchen. What is the best way to get the right name in your telephone book?

To start with you need names. There are many plumbers in Pueblo but its best if you whittle down the numbers by asking family, friends and neighbors for recommendations from their past experiences. You can also get names from those who use plumbers frequently; building contractors, real estate agents and the plumbing supply store, if your city has a better business bureau that is also a gold mine of useful names.

When you’re considering a plumbing contractor in Pueblo, make sure you specify what you need. Are you going to do a renovation or add a new bathroom to your home or is your plumbing in need of repair? Plumbers who specialize in repair are often on call 24 hours a day and are equipped for any emergency such as a failed pipe or seriously clogged drain whereas plumbers who specialize in new construction or serious remodeling have different skills and work to different schedules.

Once you have developed a short list of plumbers in the area, there are certain qualifications that set them apart. Most states require a plumber to be certified and licensed. Call the licensing board to make sure the license is still valid and there are no claims against the plumber. Make sure that the plumber is insured, with coverage for workman’s compensation and liability. Ask to see a copy of the policy if you have any doubt. The Better Business Bureau should also be contacted to see if any complaints have been made and if so, what the nature of the complaint is.

To settle on the best plumbing contractor in Pueblo for your project, take the top three on your list and introduce them to your project. Have each of them give you a written estimate including a list of materials that will be used. Demand that the entire scope of work be specified including that which is not part of the job and what the terms of payment are. Demand to know what brands of components are included, many times the quoted prices will be wildly different and the reason is high standard components from one quote and low grade components from another. Price is not the only issue, as the plumbing is usually hidden; the best parts are the best idea if you do not want premature leaks and problems.
