Pick the Right Plumber

Finding the right plumber to work with, whether it’s a small fix or a large remodeling project, is an important decision. Failure to hire a high-quality, experienced plumber can result in unnecessary and costly repairs in the future.

Hiring the right plumber will help you avoid this true-life example from a Kenosha Native who had initially hired someone OTHER than Lee Service for their project.  Here’s their story:

Imagine, you wake up one morning to discover that your drain is not working properly.  So, you reach out to a “local plumbing contractor”. It’s soon discovered that your system doesn’t have a required plumbing vent so the “local plumbing contractor” fixes the issue.   You pay the bill and expect all to be in good order … right?

Unfortunately, this was not the case for this Kenosha native. This customer suspected the repair job was not done correctly and later hired Lee Service inspection by the Lee Team, it was discovered that the first “local plumbing contractor’s” solution involved cutting a hole in the pipe, putting duct tape around it and running the pipe outside the house. Sadly, this is against code and is completely illegal. Lee’s expert plumbing team acted quickly and fixed the issue for this customer.  Unfortunately, the customer had already paid the first “local plumbing contractor” for the duct-tape fix and now had to pay to have the issue corrected for second time.

To avoid situations such as this, keep these tips in mind when selecting your plumber:

Make sure your plumber is licensed, bonded and insured: Both Wisconsin and Illinois, along with most states, require a license. Your plumber should also be insured.  Their insurance will protect you (and them) if anything unexpected takes place. Lee Service is licensed, bonded and insured.

Experience: A company with years of experience means they have a proven track record and the knowledge needed to get the job done right the first time. Lee Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric has been in business for over 40 years!!!

Warranty: Make sure your plumber’s work, including the parts, is covered under warranty.  A number of warranties will cover work for up to one year.

Feedback & references: Check the plumber’s references. In this digital age, there are countless ways to check into a business.  An example would be to survey your friends on Facebook.  Lee Service is proud to note that we have a 4.8 rating on Facebook, from our satisfied customers.

By keeping these hints in mind and by doing a little bit of research you are likely to find the best plumber for your project that will help you avoid unexpected issues.  To make a confident plumbing decision simply call the Lee Team at 262.584.4326.
