Trying to find a good service company can be pretty unnerving. When it comes to drain installation, you need to be sure you’re finding the right candidate because you want top-notch work done. Think of it this way: anytime you deal with water, you deal with drainage. Do you want to make a mistake? No way.
But how, exactly, do you find the right company to do the work you need done in your home? Well, you have to have a streamlined approach and a willingness to ask tough, but very fair, questions of prospective repair companies.
For starters, find out how much your drain installation will cost. This can be tough to find out as you may find some companies will indicate that they can’t give you a final price until they’re in your home. That said, always remember that hiring based on the lowest price isn’t the practice because you don’t want to skimp on quality, and investing in your home is always a good move.
A written estimate is also an important step to take. Again, if a company can’t give you an amount for cost, then find out if they provide free estimates and inspection of your property, and go so far as to ask if they will submit (and stand by) a written estimate. Not only does this become a way to narrow your choices, it protects you as a consumer.
Finally, look at their website (if applicable) and any testimonials. Don’t be afraid to ask for references. A reputable service provider will be proud of his/her work.When you do check references, ask questions about satisfaction with their work and issues with pricing & estimates. Once again, you as the consumer need to protected, so find out about the company’s licenses, insurance, and certifications.
Yes, finding the right drain installation company is not a welcome part of owning a home, but it is a necessary part of being a responsible homeowner. Be proactive and forthright in your rights as a consumer, and don’t be afraid to say, “No” to a company that isn’t right for you.
