Best Questions to Ask a Plumber Contractor
How much do I have to give as a deposit?
Some companies may require a 10% deposit, some may not require any. For larger projects, you'll almost always need to give a deposit, and it's good to ask how much the deposit will be before going forward with a project. The Indianapolis contractor will know how much they need for a deposit when they've given you the estimate, so ask early.
Does the Plumbing job require permits? If so, will you be pulling them yourself?
Many jobs in Indiana will require municipal permits in order to be approved by the town's inspector. It's always good to ask who will be responsible for pulling those permits, and if you'll be expected to do it. You'll almost never be told to pull your own, but knowing that Indianapolis Plumbing permits are required makes you appear to be a well informed customer.
Do you have any references that I can contact?
Always ask for references, and always check them. Keep in mind though that the only references you'll get are people who the contractor is certain will give him a good review. You'd also be well advised to check online review sources in Indianapolis as well, which will give you a broader view of customer satisfaction for a given company.
Is your bill for Plumbing in Indianapolis an estimate or a final price?
This is very important, since an estimate is just that. Many contractors will submit a "paper estimate", meaning they've written the estimate down on paper. The bill is the true amount owed and will almost always say "Invoice" or "Bill" at the top of the page. The bill should also list the date it was issued, the due date of payment, and a list of services rendered.
How long have you been in Plumbing business for/How long have been serving the Indianapolis area?
You'll always want to ask how long the company has been in business in Indianapolis. While this isn't a guarantee that the company will do good work, companies with longevity on their side must be doing something right. That being said, there are newer companies that do great work. If the company is under three years old, ask where the owner was employed before and for how long. If he/she has a long history of employment, it's reasonable to infer that he or she decided to go into business for themselves after so many years of experience.
