When you are a business owner, you make multiple decisions every day on how to best invest your money and protect your property. You have the responsibility of stewarding your company money well, which can leave you wondering if you are making the best choices. When it comes to choosing a commercial plumber for your property, asking the right questions can give you the information you need to make a wise decision.
Here are questions you should ask during the interview or discovery process when you are seeking a commercial plumber.
How Long Have You Been In Business?
Longevity carries a lot of weight. Commercial plumbing companies come and go quickly around the Chicagoland area, and you definitely don’t want to work with a company that could not be around next month. Instead, search for a company that has been in business for at least ten years.
Have You Worked in the Area Before?
Chicagoland is a huge area, and each village or city has unique regulations for plumbing permits and projects. Inquire if the commercial plumber you are interviewing has experience working in your city or nearby. This could help you determine if they already know the ins and outs of permits and regulations, which could decrease the amount of time you spend waiting on approval from your city.
Do You Have Commercial References?
Not all residential plumbers are equipped to serve commercial properties well, so be sure you are asking for references for other commercial properties approximately your size. If a plumber is hesitant to give you references, proceed with caution. If they happily give you a few numbers, call them and ask about their experience as well as their results.
