Why Hire a Professional Plumber: The Benefits of Professional Plumbing Services

There are many small plumbing tasks that homeowners can easily do themselves such as tightening a loose faucet or clearing a clogged toilet. In today’s world, you can find instructions online for nearly any plumbing service you need. However, in most cases, it is still best to call the professionals. From broken pipes to installing a water softener or clearing a backed-up line, the benefits of hiring a professional greatly outweigh the benefits that may be associated with attempting the work yourself. Let’s take a look at a few of the reasons you may want to consider hiring a professional next time you are in need of plumbing services. 

Extensive Knowledge and Skills

Licensed plumbers have extensive knowledge and training when it comes to plumbing systems, codes, and regulations. The training they go through provides them with the skills needed to handle a wide variety of plumbing issues. This means that regardless of the plumbing issue you are experiencing, they will be able to accurately diagnosis the issue and safely make the necessary repairs. They also will be able to handle more complicated installations for appliances such as water heaters and water softeners. 

Tools and Equipment 

Many plumbing tasks require specific tools that most homeowners do not have on hand. While you could easily go to a local hardware store and purchase the needed tools, you may find that they are quite expensive and not worth the investment if you will rarely use them. There may even be a learning curve while figuring out how to use the tools. A licensed plumber will have the proper tools, equipment, and parts on hand to get the job done correctly. They will also have years of experience using the tools and equipment. 

Quality Work and Long-Lasting Solutions

When you hire a professional plumber, part of the investment is the confidence that the job will be done correctly. When you attempt plumbing projects yourself, you may not always have that same level of confidence or peace of mind that the job was done correctly. A highly skilled, professional plumber will be able to get the job done right the first time. They will show attention to detail in the work they do, and the job site will be left clean. Licensed plumbers will also be up to date on industry standards, as well as codes and regulations that need to be adhered to. 

Guarantees and Warranties for Work

When you hire a professional plumber, you will get high quality work that is done correctly and to industry standards. Most licensed plumbers will offer some type of guarantee or warrantee on their work. We can’t speak for every company, but at Stan’s, we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on the plumbing services we provide. If you are dissatisfied with our service in any way, we will work with you to make it right. If we can’t, we’ll refund your money. 

Risks of DIY Plumbing 

Attempting DIY plumbing might seem like it will save you time and money, but it could lead to larger problems and repairs down the line. It can even be more expensive due to the tools that you will need to purchase. If your diagnosis is not right the first time, you may end up purchasing several sets of tools and supplies before getting to root problem. Not to mention the amount of time and energy you will spend attempting the project or repair. If you make an error while doing the repair, you could end up causing more damage. When you hire a professional that will get the job done right the first time, it will actually save you time and money in the end.
