What questions should I ask a plumber before confirming a job?
When you’re hiring a plumber for the first time, you’ll want to feel confident that they’re the best person for the job.
MyBuilder has a rigorous vetting process for all applicants – we check out work history and certifications, with a third being rejected from joining MyBuilder due to not meeting these tight standards. You can also read their reviews to make sure that other homeowners have had a positive experience.
For extra transparency and peace of mind, here are a few questions you might want to ask your plumber before confirming a job:
- what kind of experience have they got?
- have they got any accreditations, for example NVQs or City & Guilds qualifications?
- can they provide any references from previous jobs?
- are they Gas Safe-registered? This is essential for any work that involves gas pipework.
- do they charge extra for urgent work or out-of-hours jobs?
