How to Choose the Best Plumber in Ontario

In a perfect world, you already have a trusted plumber before a plumbing emergency. Unfortunately, life isn’t perfect. So when you’ve got a plumbing disaster on your hands, how do you make the right choice? There are a few qualities you should look out for. And beyond that, a plumber’s reputation says a lot about their service. You’ll see exactly that in our testimonials.

Alright, let’s get into the details.

The Best Plumber has the Best Price

As the likely first quality you’ll search for, the plumber’s price is a good indicator of their quality of service. In your search, you’ll find a spectrum from overpriced simple repairs to grand promises on a low budget. In general, you can expect to ‘get what you pay for’. Look for a plumber that has a fair middle price. You should expect simple projects to cost less, while larger problems might require more expenses. While price matters a lot and is a great indicator of a plumber’s skill and reputation, you’ll see it’s not the only important factor.

The Best Plumbing is High-Quality

Just like the price spectrum, you’ll find, you’ll also see a range of quality in plumbers that’s usually reflected in their price. The best plumbers will guarantee that severe repairs will see a long-term solution installed for a fair price. That being said, it’s better to pay once for the right solution than twice for one poor plumber and one expert. In many cases, there is more than one solution to a problem. That means that a quality plumber will give you options based on your goals and budget when they can.

The Best Plumbers are Professionals

The best plumbers are professionals. Being a professional means offering quality services, fairly, and at a competitive price. Professional plumbers take their appointments seriously and value their clients. And beyond that, they are experts in their fields. Plumbing is a problem-solving service, so having a wide set of skills and deep knowledge matters a lot.

The Best Plumbing Has Transparency

Reviews are a very important part of choosing a plumber. Although there are ways to manipulate the truth online, more often than not, a plumber’s reputation is revealed through their reviews. And if you’re tech-savvy, you can make yourself aware of the clues for when a business is padding its reviews. The best plumbers have high reviews across a variety of platforms online. So check out your trusted review sites and the plumber’s home page for testimonials.

Punctuality is another important factor of transparency. A good plumber won’t over-schedule and will prioritize being on time for their appointments. Each client is valued and connected to us at Plumbing Medic, which is why we emphasize our customer service. You’ll find that out when you give us a call!

Certifications & Warranties

Beyond what we’ve already discussed, quality plumbers will have the certifications to back their skills. The best plumbers have their general certification, and other specific certifications like water sense, CSA, NSF 14 and more. If you see these certifications, you can be confident that the plumber is experienced with that particular tool or skill.

Compare Competitors

The last step to making sure you’ve got the perfect plumber is to do a quick comparison to other local plumbers. This might seem like an unnecessary step, but if you notice that your plumber’s price or service descriptions are significantly different than competitors, you might want to think twice.

Plumbing is a service industry, so our client’s honesty is our currency. With the cost of plumbing repairs, it pays to have the expertise backed by a strong reputation. So once you have evaluated all your options, make your choice and commit to submitting a review yourself. Not only will you help other homeowners in your position, but you will also help your plumber build his reputation. And building this rapport is always a good thing with your trusted service professionals!
