When Was the Last Time You Needed to Hire a Plumber?

The fact that a managers from one of the local home improvement stores personally delivered new flooring products to your home is an indication of just how wrong this recent project has gone. After a day of a contractor working on what seems like it should have been a fairly simply flooring installation the number of problems that occurred were incredible. And while you were initially caught up in the faulty craftsmanship of the team, a day and half later the real problem emerged. An improperly set toilet had been leaking for the last day and a half and the problem was only discovered when you realized that one of the toilets had been leaking when you saw the damage on the first floor ceiling below that toilet. An immediate trip upstairs led you to the problem where you shut off the water and quickly returned to the first floor to start evaluating the problem and cleaning up the mess. Fortunately, the drip had not started to come down onto the cabinet and the use of the in ceiling exhaust fan and an additional floor fan combined with the almost constant running of the furnace during one of the coldest day of the week, helped to dry out the problem. The remaining stain was significant, but you were thankful that you were home and that more damage was not done.

The delivery of new flooring materials is the start of the process to fix the problem by a flooring contractor who did not know how to accurately reset the toilet. Fortunately, after the first contractor was so careless, you were able to conduct a search for plumber Sacramento that led you to a more reputable person.
Licensed Plumbing Services Stand Behind the Quality of Work They Provide

Whether you are looking for drain cleaning, water heater maintenance, or someone to pull and rest a toilet during a flooring project, it is always in your best interest to make sure that you are working with a licensed and reputable plumbing contractor. And while it may, for instance, be tempting to call the first listing when you conduct a plumber Sacramento search, it is always important to check with the local better business bureau and to ask for referral recommendations as well. Unfortunately, when you hire work to be done by a contractor connected to a large home improvement retail company, the contractor you get may not fit any of the desired traits: licensed, respected, and trustworthy. The home retail store likely contracts their work out to a company that hires any number of contractors in the area. This means that you will be working with someone who is at least twice removed from the big retailer who you are paying. As a result, you may find yourself dealing with any number of challenges should something with the project go wrong.

Consider some of these facts and figures about the many times when finding the right plumber, no matter where you I’ve, is essential:

  • Nearly 10% of the U.S. households have leaks in their plumbing that can waste as much as 90 gallons of water a day.
  • Flushing toilets consumes about 38% of the average U.S. household’s water usage, so it is important to make sure that toilets do not also run nonstop or leak.
  • Even in a house without leaks, the average U.S. family uses more than 300 gallons of water every day at home.
  • A shower head leaking at 10 drips a minute wastes more than 500 gallons of water a year. That is the amount of water it takes to wash 60 loads of dishes in a dishwasher.
  • Not surprising, an undetected leak continuing for a year can cost $164.50 in those 12 months.
  • Plumber Sacramento or plumber New Orleans searches can be problematic. You may find the names of contractors, without any differentiation between those who can be trusted and those who cannot. Finding a way to navigate these listings, of course, is the key to making sure that any project is completed successfully. Every home project is important as it can add to the value of your greatest investment: your home. A simple plumber Sacramento search might not be enough to ensure that success.
