Plumbing Questions In Detail
- How Much Will A Plumber Cost? –
When it comes to the cost of hiring a professional plumber, there are several factors that go into determining this fee. These include the length of time it takes to fix your issue, how many people are necessary on site, whether or not other repairs need to be made, and if the materials are on site or need to be brought in. Typically our rates start as low as $29 an hour depending on the work and how many plumbers you need at your job.
- Who Is The Cheapest Plumber That You Know Of? –
As you probably already know, there is no such thing as a cheap plumber! Even extremely low rates add up over time and could end up costing you more than hiring a reputable company. We are offering industry leading rates on the lower end since we are a larger company, we can afford to do so, but a licensed plumber does cost more than the cheapest options out there. Dependability is important too though, which is what you get for a fair rate when you call us for your plumbing service needs.
- What Can I Do To Prevent Plumbing Issues In My Bathroom? –
Regularly clean out the excess water and soap behind your shower and/or bathtub, as this can lead to building up and causing mold or mildew to grow. If you notice excess water behind the shower or tub after taking a shower, wipe it dry with a towel and leave the bathroom fan on for at least 30 minutes. These are a few good preventative maintenance steps for your plumbing.
- Are All Plumbers Insured And Bonded? –
All reputable companies are insured and bonded, but individuals should always ask this question before hiring them to do work in your home. Not only is insurance necessary for any type of profession, but it also protects you, the homeowner, in case anything was to go wrong during the job or after. Any job done from Cleveland Plumbing will be done under the appropriate insurance or permits required by your city.
- What Types Of Plumbing Services Does Your Company Offer? –
Before hiring a plumber, you should always ask what services they offer so there are no surprises later on in your bill. Some plumbers offer everything under the sun, while others specialize in certain areas. We offer every type of commercial or residential plumbing services you need, all under one roof.
- What Are Your Rates? –
The rates for hiring a plumber vary greatly, depending on where you live and what services are included with the job. It’s best not to hire one until you know exactly what they’ll charge so there are no surprises later down the road. Ask what our hourly rates are for your job and we will be as transparent as possible.
- How Many Years Have You Been In Business? –
Lastly, how long the company has been in business is important. If it’s a reputable, long-standing business you are more likely to have your needs met. A new company may not have the experience necessary to get the job done correctly on their first try! We have been in business since 1964 and have over 70 years of experience with just our master plumbers.
