Easy Way to Differentiate Between a Professional Plumber and an Amateur

Written by Posted On Wednesday, 04 December 2019 17:38

With the increase in the number of plumbers out there on the street and those inside their companies, it could sometimes be tricky for you to identify the best that can do a perfect job. Most of the plumbers or plumbing contractors out there are more concerned about what they can give than the services they can render. How about we carefully look at some of those things that could easily alert you to the possibility of hiring the wrong guy for your plumbing job.


As much as people would want to tell you to focus on skills rather than paper works, sometimes paper works are your only saving grace from shedding future tears. A professional plumber must have gone through several tests to obtain a license. Without passing excellently, it is difficult to get the license. When you ask a plumber for a license, and he can’t provide you with anyone, then you need to have a rethink about choosing him.


There is every possibility the person you are about to choose has a license, but he is far from being competent. Detecting this is very easy. If people don’t speak well of him and his services, then he isn’t the person you want for the job. Even if his credentials are very attractive, if he doesn’t have an attractive reputation, then he is not the professional plumber you seek. Refrain from choosing him else you might be on the list of people that will give the same negative comments you are hearing about him after spending lots of money.

Work Warranty

Only a plumber that is sure of himself and what he can offer would boldly offer a work warranty. Such a contractor is ready to face the consequences of making any mistake with your pipes and other plumbing accessories. An amateur would never try such because he/she envisages a higher possibility of a disaster than success. Once you notice anything of this nature, don’t wait too long before looking for an alternative.


A professional plumbing contractor has lots of experience on the job and even enough evidence to prove it, but an amateur seeks people to work with for him to gain more experience. You might be lucky to get perfect work done without any flaw, and your work might be another field of knowledge for the amateur plumber. The choice is yours but be wise with it.
