Making Sure Plumbing Work is Guaranteed

How long is plumbing work guaranteed for?

If you have a plumbing job that needs completing then you want to make sure it gets done well, by a dedicated and experienced professional. It’s worth remembering that paying the lowest price for a plumbing job is not always the best idea. There are competitive rates for certain types of work and paying less may mean that the job is not being done to a high standard, or that the work is not fully guaranteed when completed. 

If you speak to an experienced professional like Plumbing Detectives you should have peace of mind that the job will be done well. You should also receive a guarantee of the work and parts so that you know you can get help in the unlikely event that something does go wrong shortly after the job has been completed.

What about the guarantee?

Any licensed and reputable professional plumber should provide you with a guarantee of the work completed and the parts used. This will only cover parts that have been supplied by the plumber and not any parts that you have bought independently. The vast majority of plumbing work carried out by professionals does not cause you any problems. A guarantee is there to provide some security should anything go wrong. The standard guarantee is generally one year for work and parts. 

What else is important to consider?

When you are looking to a hire a plumber it’s not just the offer of a guarantee that is important to consider. You also need to think about some other important points:

  • Is the plumber fully licensed?
  • Do they have plenty of positive independent reviews?
  • Are they long established?
  • Do they provide detailed and precise estimates?

You need to consider all of these aspects at once, in order to choose the best plumber for the job.

What sort of plumbing jobs are the most common?

You can see what you need to consider when choosing a professional plumber, and why a guarantee is so important, but what type of work can you actually hire a plumber to complete. Here are some of the most common jobs that professional plumbers are asked to complete. 

  • Emergency response service. Most people have some sort of plumbing emergency in a lifetime. If you have a burst water tank that sends cascades of water through your house you want to make sure you get an experienced professional to fix the problem quickly in order to limit the amount of damage caused.
  • Toilet repairs. If you have a toilet that is not working as it should it can be both a huge inconvenience and very unhygienic. This is why hiring a reputable plumber to fix the problem is so important.
  • Gas and electric hot water plumbing. You cannot live your life without an efficient hot water system. It does not matter whether you are having a new one fitted, or a current one maintained, you need to enlist the services of a qualified plumber. 
  • Drain unblocking and maintenance. If you want your water system to work efficiently it’s very important that your drains are kept cleaned and correctly maintained. You do not have to wait until a blockage occurs to get help from a plumbing professional; hiring help to make sure your drains remain in good working order is an excellent idea. 
  • Gas appliance installation. If you have just purchased a new gas appliance then you may want help to install it. The same can apply if you are moving home. Gas can be dangerous if it is not handled properly so you need to make sure that you hire fully licensed professionals to help.

You can see how important it is to make sure that you hire a reliable professional to complete all of your plumbing work. You should expect at least a one year guarantee for parts and labour, from a reputable plumber. In all likelihood there will be  no problem with the work that has been completed but having a guarantee in place gives you extra peace of mind just in case. You should always make sure that you have all the bases covered and that you know you can get help should there be any problem after you have had plumbing work completed.
