There is nothing worth than springing a leak. If you are a resident in Portland this problem can be exasperated by the fact that you have no idea which plumber to turn to.
While this service is absolutely necessary finding a reputable, trustworthy, and experienced plumber in this city can be difficult. Looking in the phone book alone will not cut it. There are over two hundred listings for “plumbing” in the Portland Dex phone book and they all say the exact same thing. Scan through the first fifty ads and count how many times you see “our customers love us,” “excellent customer service,” and “best in town.” If you went by what every person says about themselves you would swear that the president of United States was going to nominate them.
So, this begs the question, how do you find a solid plumbing company?
The following are three basic and easy suggestions that you should follow in order.
Ask a potential plumbing company for at least three references. Once you get to this point you should be 80% sure you want to go with this company. But, this should be the final test. If a plumber or plumbing company is as good as they say then several RECENT former customers should be able to validate that. It is not about not trusting someone. It is about understanding that the society we live in is not the most honest it has historically been and people, businesses included, will say anything.
Due Diligence Will Get You A Quality Company
By slowing down and taking a little bit of time you can find a great plumbing company. There are many good ones and there are more than a few bad ones around town. Your job is to find the people who take pride in their job and have built a solid reputation.
