Plan Your Plumbing: Finding a Good Plumber

If you're planning any type of home improvement, whether it be an addition or just a remodelling job, it's important to always remember the plumbing repairs that need to get done. If you've never undertaken a big renovation project before, it may be easy to take plumbing for a given, Unfortunately it may be a more complex job than you think- possibly with significant costs you may not have considered from the outset.

That said, you're going to need a plumber - a good plumber who understands the needs of a home remodelling job, and will make a thorough and accurate assessment of the needs presented by your plumbing repairproject.

Get a Trusted Professional
How tragic would it be to finish your project, only to be rewarded with an annoying drip late at night? These unwelcomed drips are not just irritating, they may also cause damage you may not be aware of for years to come. That's why a good plumber is so important to have—one who doesn’t cut corners, or skimp on costs in order to boost his bottom line after the job is done.

Planning the plumbing repair is of the utmost importance, and a good plumber will be more than willing to help you in this process. Your master plumber will find out where all the pipes are, and will also help you determine the best places to put any sinks, toilets, showers, etc., A good plumber will be conscientious of electrical wiring, insulation and any other possible obstructions that may become a problem if not carefully factored into the plan.

Budget for the plumbing repair and renovation is also a foremost issue on most people's minds. Again, a good plumber will be realistic when estimating costs. Be wary of a plumber who tries to undercut others—they all likely pay the same price for materials, as well as similar rates for their labor. If you choose a local plumber based on the promise of low cost,you may just find yourself with a half-finished job and a bill asking for additional money if you want the job completed.

Don't Be Cheap: Hire a Good Plumber

Any good plumber will tell you that there's three levels of quality when it comes to a big plumbing repair or installation job—the low end, the middle of the road, and the high end ideal. Don't be cynical when the plumber steers you away from the least expensive option—a good plumber knows that this may not be the wisest option. Just because he benefits from selling you a more expensive option doesn't mean he's out to gut you, he's been in the business and he's surely cleaned up his share of messes made by cheap plumbing. Be prepared to at least take the middle option to ensure good craftsmanship and resale value.
