Have you ever hired a technician to perform work on your home only to have the same problem happen again? If you want the job done right, it’s important to hire a licensed plumber. But before you hire your next plumber, keep these tips in mind:
If you choose to go with an unlicensed contractor not only are you taking a big risk, any contract you make with them is null and void. This means that you don’t actually have any guarantee that the world will be completed or that the price will remain the same throughout.
Before you make your final decision:
Get a few references. Talk to your neighbors, friends and family members to see who they have hired in the past. You can also ask other contractors that have worked on your home in the past.
Don’t make a decision until you’ve gotten three estimates. Be wary that the lowest price isn’t always the best choice, they are cheap for a reason.
Get everything in writing. Don’t sign any contracts until you understand the entire thing, and always ask for an explanation if you don’t understand something.
Paying cash can become a problem. It’s a smarter idea to use a check or a credit card and always ask for a receipt.
