When about three out of four building damages are caused by moisture, it’s no wonder that many of us fear moisture damages when buying a house. Choosing a serious plumber is thereby one of the most important decisions you make regarding your house, and with the following advice, you’ll secure yourself from being scammed.
Investigate the Market and Gather Offers
You probably know someone who has good experiences with plumbers in your local area. Talk to your friends and acquaintances, and make your own investigations. You should also be able to find tender services online where you can use the market to get an affordable price.
It’s important to remember that your bathroom is the room where the highest number of craftsmen are involved. It’s imperative that their work overlaps in a way according to building regulations, and because of this, you should choose craftsmen who have a good understanding and experience with each other’s work.
Choose a Total Supplier
A total renovation of your bathroom includes several occupations. You need to gain help from an electrician, a tiler, a carpenter, and a plumber. The absolute best solution is to order the entire project through a plumbing business that’s able to assist you through the entire renovation process. If you choose a partner who takes care of the project from A-Z you’ll be able to relax, let the experts coordinate the work, and just communicate with one contractor instead of several.
For example, Bad & Vvs, a popular plumbing company in Bergen, Norway, offers total renovations like this and has many partners that they regularly use for their renovation jobs. They cooperate with the best carpenters, painters, and tilers in Bergen, and instill trust in their customers with their wide range of expertise. Customers also appreciate this a lot as it means they only need to have a dialogue with one company and not 5-10 different contractors.
When choosing a total supplier, you’re usually in safer hands than when you’re choosing an individual contractor for each part of the job.
Don’t Forget the Signature
My final piece of advice, but decidedly one of the most crucial, is to make sure you have a written contract that explains in raw detail what is to be done and what price you have agreed on. Unfortunately, many people are too lazy or indifferent about the contract, and only about one in three agree on a price before the plumber begins their work. Is there any wonder that a lot of disagreements arise?
A quality plumber will bring the contract to you, but if the plumber you’ve hired doesn’t, it’s essential that you take responsibility. After all, you’re the one who will have to pay for the consequences if the plumber you’ve chosen doesn’t deliver what was promised.
