What to Ask a Commercial Plumbing Company Before Work Begins

Hiring a plumber for a commercial property is a big decision. Commercial plumbers typically service businesses, multifamily high rises, and other large developments. You want a company that is knowledgeable, trustworthy, and able to take great care of the property. After all, your plumbing is extremely important to maintain your business.

That’s why it is always vital to ask questions before allowing a commercial plumber to begin work on the property. You deserve to know you have picked a plumbing company that can service your property with skill and trust.

Is the Plumber Licensed, Experienced, and Insured?

These should be the top three qualifying questions to ask before contracting a commercial plumber. Licensure and insurance go a long way. Particularly when hiring a commercial plumber, the outcome of the job they do impacts all the people who use the building daily.

Insurance gives peace of mind that your building will be covered in the event of a freak accident. Although licensure and insurance show the plumbing company is vetted, experience speaks volumes. It’s best to hire a commercial plumber who has successfully worked on buildings like your own.

Does the Plumbing Company Charge for Estimates?

Quality plumbing companies will assess your property and create an estimate before work ever begins. This way, they can go into the job with the knowledge of what needs to be done, and you can prepare for the payment due at the end of the job.

However, some plumbing companies charge to send someone out to assess the property and create the estimate. Whether you are willing to pay for an estimate is up to you, but it is good to know their policy ahead of the inspection.

How Long Has the Company Been in Business?

As previously mentioned, experience speaks volumes. A plumbing company with a lot of experience under its belt is more likely to be able to handle the nuances of a large commercial job. It’s always wise to look through online reviews and testimonials from previous customers.
