plumbing nightmares and how to avoid them
Whether you need a plumber to repair a leaky faucet or perhaps repipe your entire
home, beware these dreaded realities that can turn your plumbing experience into
- The Drive-by Plumber: some plumbers are in and out of
your home in a flash, which is a good thing, right? WRONG!! These fly-by-the-seat-of-the-pants
plumbers are most likely not using the proper techniques, tools, and supplies that
are so critical to preventing callbacks. In fact, they may be quick but when there's
a problem, which is likely due to their "get in and get out" philosophy, they need
to come back and you get to deal with the mess and inconvenience all over again.
A Preferred Plumber™ selects only the highest caliber materials and is trained
and skilled in the proper techniques that ensure that we do the job right, the first
- The Long Engagement: some plumbers may say they'll be
in and out of your home, but the work seems to drag on for days, or worse, possibly
because they are waiting for materials or they are busy finishing someone else's
plumbing job. A Preferred Plumber™ is there when promised ... stays long enough
to do the best possible job, then they're out of your hair!
- Your Home = the New City Dump: neat and tidy are not two
words that are often associated with plumbers. In fact, many drive trucks up on
your driveway, leave tools and supply packaging lying around your house, and drag
who knows what into your home on their shoes. Not when you deal with a Preferred
Plumber™. They treat your home and property as if it were their own, leaving
nothing behind but an outstanding plumbing job and your complete satisfaction. Preferred
Plumbers™ even wear special foot gear to cover their shoes and clean up after
themselves as they work to keep your home spotless!
- The "Concrete" Guarantee: some plumbers offer a "concrete
guarantee" ... that as soon as their truck leaves your concrete driveway, their
guarantee expires. Many offer guarantees on materials, but no guarantee on workmanship
... and poor installation can void many manufacturer material warranties that are
meant to protect you. A Preferred Plumber™ will offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee
on their work (see for details) ... that's on top of any material guarantees.
