New Construction or a Remodel? We’ll handle it!
Whether you are building a new home from scratch or remodeling the one you currently live in, plumbing is an integral part of the process. Using professional, expert plumbing contractors will help you cost-effectively and efficiently install your plumbing needs from start to finish.
For regular plumbing issues, you can all a plumber to take care of your needs. However, detailed work like renovations and construction requires the person you hire to do the job to have a training and license specifically as a plumbing contractor.
When Would You Call a Plumber?
Plumbers can handle the main things that most people need regularly, such as overflowing toilets and clogged drains. In other words, they easily handle minor repairs skillfully.
Plumbers can install or repair faucets, toilets, showers, shower drains, bathtubs, sinks, and other basic fixtures.
What is a Plumbing Contractor?
A plumbing contractor can be an individual or a company that deals predominantly with new construction and remodels or renovations. These specialists can handle plumbing well beyond simple repairs.
When you have issues that require handling of water supplies, septic systems, or more in depth plumbing concerns, you would want to be sure you hire a plumbing contractor rather than a plumber.
When Would You Call a Plumbing Contractor?
Plumbing contractors can handle services that are more difficult than those you would need a regular plumber for. Plumbing contractors can do all that a plumber can do, but they can also do things like:
- Install gas connections and water heaters,
- Work with homeowners and construction workers during planning of a new construction site,
- Determine if new construction or renovations are in compliance with local, federal, and building codes,
- Provide yard line and water leak repairs,
- Handle gas leaks, and more.
If you need any of these services or anything beyond the scope of a licensed plumber, you would call in a plumbing contractor.
Other Information on Plumbing Contractors
Your general contractor may recommend a plumbing contractor that they know is reputable, but you should always do your research. It is not as easy to find plumbing contractors as it is to find a plumber.
Plumbers generally expect payment when services are rendered or shortly after, but a plumbing contractor may give you an estimate for the job they are going to perform and require a deposit up front. The remaining balance is generally expected when the project is completed.
