Hiring the right commercial plumber is an important decision, one that potentially impacts the day-to-day operation of your business as well as the bottom line of your business. Additionally, if you plan to continue business operations during the plumbing installation, you need a commercial plumber willing to meet your business’s needs and ready to help you succeed.
Selecting the right Dallas commercial plumber could be a daunting task, but it’s just a matter of asking the right questions and feeling comfortable with your selection. Here are 5 questions to help you get started finding the right commercial plumber for your project:
1) Can you provide references on other commercial plumbing jobs you have done?
Beyond simply any references, you are looking for plumbing references. Pay particular attention to prior jobs that are similar to your current plumbing need. In total you should request three to five references.
Questions to ask the references include:
- Was the project completed on budget?
- Was the project completed on time?
- Were there any unexpected challenges? If so, how were they handled?
- Would you hire this firm again for your next commercial plumbing project?
2) Are you licensed and bonded for the Dallas/Fort Worth area?
Not everyone who advertises himself or herself as a commercial plumber in Dallas is licensed in the state of Texas. Follow up by asking for the bond and state identification number, and then check the credentials with the state to ensure they are current. Commercial plumbing often requires adherence to codes and needs specific permits, as well as potentially having inspection requirements. Only a licensed and experienced commercial plumber can guide you through the process and ensure that all the proper permissions are acquired.
3) How long have you specialized in commercial plumbing?
Experience is the difference between a job done and a job done right. Among commercial plumbers, you want a plumbing firm with a wealth of experience to draw from in meeting your needs and solving your challenges.
4) What is the typical schedule of a project like mine?
You need to know how long your plumbing project will take and how it will impact your business. You also need a clear understanding of what a reasonable timeframe would be for a project like yours.
5) What does your current schedule look like?
When do you need the work done? And does this plumbing company have availability that matches your timeframe?
The more you know about commercial plumbers and how a project operates, the easier it will be to select the best commercial plumber to fit your needs.
