You pull into your driveway after a nice evening out with the family, open the garage door and are greeted with a wall of water. First thought is, “what the heck is going on here?” Your second thought is, “All my Christmas decorations are ruined.”
Then panic ensues: where is all this water coming from, how do I shut it off, what about all my stuff? Who am I going to call at this hour?
And finally, I wonder how much this is going to cost me?Who are the best plumbing companies in Riverside, CA?
Whether you are a homeowner, a landlord, or a property manager, this situation is never fun and certainly not what you want to deal with on a Friday night.
Now, begins the real work: finding an honest contractor that will fix the repair without charging you an arm and a leg.
It is always a struggle to find a good reliable vendor or contractor. As a homeowner, you want to make sure you are getting good quality work at a fair price.
Over the last 8 years, I have spent countless hours on the computer, at Home Depot, and at Lowes in search for that contractor that you can send a work-order to and know that you are going to get great customer service, workmanship, and for a fair and honest price.
Do your Homework
As a property management company or a homeowner, it is imperative to research out a contractor before having them perform work at your home. It is important to make sure any contractor doing work at your home is licensed, bonded and insured.
Did you know that if a contractor is injured at your home, you could be held liable? That’s a whole other can of worms to talk about at a later date.
With access to the world wide web, you can research out plumbing companies in your local area without much effort. A simple search of Yelp Reviews, Google Reviews, Better Business Bureau, and Angie’s List for plumbing companies in Riverside California will provide you instant results. It pays to read the reviews and make sure you are getting the best customer service and pricing out there.
