Best Questions to Ask a Plumber Contractor
Does the Plumbing job require permits? If so, will you be pulling them yourself?
Many jobs in Colorado 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 Loveland Plumbing permits are required makes you appear to be a well informed customer.
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 Loveland contractor will know how much they need for a deposit when they've given you the estimate, so ask early.
How long have you been in Plumbing business for/How long have been serving the Loveland area?
You'll always want to ask how long the company has been in business in Loveland. 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.
How many contractors do you have working for you? How many vehicles are in your fleet?
This is important mostly for larger jobs. Clearly a two man operation is going to build a home much slower than a 15 man crew. This is also a good indication of the overall size of the Plumbing company, if that's an area of concern for you. The reason you may want to ask about the fleet is that fleet size is a good indicator of the mobility of the company. Mobility may not sound important, but it's hard for the Loveland contractors to get to job sites if they lack appropriate vehicles.
Are you insured and/or bonded for Plumbing?
You'll certainly want to ask them this. Steer clear of any company that is not insured in Colorado, because that means that any incidental damage they may do on your property will be a real hassle to recover compensation for. It is never wise to work with uninsured tradesmen of any kind. Most states also require that someone have insurance in order to be issued a trade license. If they say they're licensed but not insured, they're being less than truthful.
