The Four Most Important Things to Consider When Choosing a Plumber in Torquay Devon
Most people start their hunt for a plumber when there is a problem. If they are lucky, that problem is something relatively minor such as a blocked toilet, but it could also be a leaking pipe, blocked drains or any number of other issues. The challenge is finding a reputable plumbing company fast, without employing a bunch of cowboys that could turn a drama into a crisis. In this article, we have listed the most important things you should take into consideration when hiring a plumber in Torquay Devon.
Experience Counts – How Long Has A Company Been in Business?
It is easy to lose a good reputation in any town or city and difficult to get rid of a bad one. Companies that deliver a poor quality service inevitably go out of business relatively quickly, so a good barometer for any service-based company is to find out how long they have been in business. Moreheat has been delivering plumbing services to the people of Devon for over twenty years and has an excellent reputation within the local area.
Choose A Company That Will Provide A No-Obligation In-Person Estimate
While specific trades can provide an estimate over the telephone, a plumbing job is typically not one of those services. With the possible exception of a blocked toilet, it is virtually impossible for a plumber to provide an estimate over the telephone; after all, they have no comprehension of the problem, how difficult access will be, or the length of time that the work will take.
If a company offers you a telephone estimate, this should be considered a red flag. Unfortunately, some companies will take advantage of the predicament you find yourself in and give you a quote on the phone to get the work. They may then turn up to complete the work, and decide that the original quote was not accurate. Moreheat will always attend to your property and provide you with a written quotation, free of charge.
Are They Members of Recognised Trade Bodies?
When it comes to working with Gas, most customers know that any engineer needs to be registered on the Gas Safe Register. However, there are a number of other recognised trade bodies that a company can become affiliated with. Typically, these organisations require the plumbing company to meet a certain set of standards.
Moreheat is proud to be on the Gas Safe Register, and to be members or partners of OFTEC, and to be Safe Contractor Approved. We have been awarded The Certification Mark for Onsite Sustainable Energy Technologies, follow The Renewable Energy Consumer Code, and are approved fitters of Worcester Bosch products.
Does The Company Offer a Guarantee?
When it comes to any type of service or product installation, there is always the potential for something to go wrong. When hiring a plumbing company, always ask about the length of guarantee they offer. At Moreheat, we stand behind our work, and for new boiler installations, we offer a 10-year guarantee to provide our customers with peace of mind.
