Turriff Plumbing
My mother has just turned seventy last year, and with my father being passed away my mother is in her house by herself most the time, and this worried me. Especially because she suffered a fall a couple years ago, and will not consider a nursing home for the life of her. My biggest worry is when she does laundry, because that is the only time she needs to use steps, because her washer and dryer are located in the basement, I didn't think there were any possibilities to fix this. But i decided to try Turriff Plumbing since my friend said they are very good at safety precautions for seniors. Once I called I was amazed to find that they could put in a a washer and dryer upstairs, and after meeting with them at my mother's house I found they were able to squeeze a stackable washer and dryer in a very tight closet located right by her bedroom that i wouldn't have thought possible, and at a price that was significantly less than what i predicted. Great business and i recommend them to anybody.
Tips & Advices
  • Are you licensed and registered?
  • Are you insured and bonded?
  • How many years have you been in business?
  • What, if any, professional associations do you belong to?
  • May I have a list of references?
  • Do you offer a written warranty for your work?
  • Will I need a permit for this work?
It is important to have a written warranty for any work or repairs done to the plumbing in your house, especially if it is a major repair. Look for a professional  who is willing to  stand by his or her work.
Before you hire a plumber, contact their past customers if you're able to. These people can be a wealth of information if you ask them the right questions. Pose the following queries to these former patrons when you get the chance:
  • Were you pleased with the work done?
  • Was the project completed on time?
  • Did the plumber give you a written warranty and guarantee his or her work?
  • Were there any unexpected costs that arose?
  • Would you hire this plumber again? If not, why?
A permit provides added assurance that the work is done correctly. Having this in place means an inspector will check the work your contractor or plumber does to ensure he or she did the job correctly. If you plan on putting your house or commercial building on the market, a real estate agent and prospective buyers will want to check any large work you did to make sure it was done properly.
A trustworthy plumber will have both commercial liability insurance as well as be bonded. The insurance and the bond protects the plumber from paying for any damages made to your house out of pocket. Having professionals that carry both of these policies can protect all of you from any mishaps that could occur while they work on your building.
