Plumbing For Our New Addition – How to Get an Emergency Plumber
After sorting through contractors, carpenters, electricians, architects and landscape designers, we finally narrowed down the crew that we wanted working on our home’s new addition. But we still needed to find a plumber or plumbing contractor who could do the job right, unlike the last one.
Of the four licensed plumbers we brought out to our property, all seemed knowledgeable and realistic in their expectations. But one, unbeknownst to us, had already worked on several houses in our neighborhood, and was even the plumber who worked on the addition that was built on the property two blocks away from us. If we were to get a Plumber near me from the current lineup, it certainly seemed like this was our guy. Admittedly, he didn’t promise the lowest price or the best time frame, but his experience in our area gave us the reassurance that he had the most realistic expectations for these concerns.
Plumbing problems from ice cold showers and freezing pipes to basement flooding and serious leakages – tend to sneak up on us at the most inconvenient time. Chances of emergency plumbing are considerably higher in homes with poor plumbing maintenance, but unfortunately emergencies have also been known to occur in homes that have diligently maintained their plumbing.
Before jumping in head first, we asked our neighbor up the street if he was satisfied with the work that this plumber had done. He replied that he was absolutely thrilled with the plumbing repairs and work that was done on his property.
This made our decision pretty easy-as much as we’d like to get a plumber who promises the lowest price or to get a emergency plumber who assures the fastest delivery, we want the job done right more than anything else.
Our home remodeling last year set us back quite a bit more than we’d planned thanks to shoddy plumber work, hence our careful and deliberate selection process this time around- but we were thankful to finally get a plumber who knew what he was doing.
Getting it Done
Once the project was underway, the plumber we chose was able to lay down pipes to fit through the foundation before any concrete was poured. He knew all the right places to put them so that they would flow efficiently into all the outlets planned for the final product. He even navigated around the areas of the new addition that were most likely to settle over time, reducing the risk of cracked pipes and major foundational repairs.
After the project was completed, we had a simple but effective plumbing system that we were more than happy with. Sure enough, everything worked just as it was supposed to with readily available hot water and plenty of pressure in all the places we needed it most. Our addition was ready for guests, tenants, or whomever we needed to put up for a little while.
