HomeBlog3 Red Flags to Watch Out for When Choosing a Plumbing Contractor

If you are planning to remodel your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room, then you will need the help of an experienced plumbing contractor. You’ll also need to call a plumbing contractor whenever you require plumbing repair services. Our team at Metro Plumbing has extensive experience in the plumbing industry, and we know what it takes to be good at this work.

3 Red Flags to Watch Out for When Choosing a Plumbing Contractor

We also know not every plumbing contractor is equally skilled or honest, so we have put together this list of red flags to watch out for when choosing a plumbing contractor.

  • Few Reviews – When searching the internet for plumbing contractors, always check out the company’s reviews. In particular, pay attention to how many reviews there are—if there are only one or two, that’s a bad sign. Reviews are like a business’ resume, so if they are sparse, we encourage you to look for another candidate for the position.
  • High-Pressure Sales Tactics – Another red flag to look out for is high-pressure sales tactics. Reputable plumbing contractors, like those on our team, will give you time to think about your options, so you can make the best decision. If the contractor is pressuring you to sign a contract right then or else you’ll lose a great deal, you should beware.
  • No Portfolio – The same way an established contractor should have a history of reviews, they will also have a portfolio of past work to show you. If you ask to see examples of a contractor’s past work, or ask for a list of client references, and they can’t provide any, that’s a serious red flag. In this situation, you should take your business to a contractor who can provide a documented work history.
