Have you ever attempted a plumbing project only to get frustrated midway through? Not all repairs, installations, or maintenance jobs are DIY ones, which is why it’s important to hire a professional. Our team at DB’s Plumbing and Drain® has put together a list of reasons why we recommend hiring a professio
nal over tinkering with your plumbing system yourself.
First, We Have the Proper Training
Whether a plumber received formal training at a technical school, or they worked their way up the ranks at a company, all licensed plumbers receive extensive, hands-on education. At a technical school, licensed instructors offer classes and workshops that help prospective plumbers develop the skills needed to succeed on the job. Those who don’t receive formal training are taught in the field and usually possess some amount of mechanical knowledge or understanding of plumbing systems.
At DB’s Plumbing and Drain®, we provide a training program where all of our apprentices shadow our licensed technicians to learn every aspect of the trade. Additionally, our technicians are lifelong learners and we require them to continue to improve their skills via workshops, classes, or in-the-field training throughout the duration of their careers.
We Are Well-Rounded
Because plumbers are often on their own throughout the workday, they are responsible for “being their own boss.” This means that they determine their schedule, manage their time, interact with customers, and represent the company without a direct supervisor hovering over them at all times. All of these skills must be in addition to quality plumbing skills as well.
In order for our plumbers to be successful, they must deliver five-star customer service at all times, in all aspects of the job.
We also don’t specialize in just one area of plumbing. Every member of our team is capable of performing a vast array of services from water heater installation to drain cleaning.
We Have the Proper Equipment
Yes, some plumbing jobs just require a wrench and some Teflon tape, but there are others, such as trenchless pipe repair, that require more extensive equipment. Rather than purchasing all of the items that you would need to perform the service yourself, it’s much more cost-efficient to just hire a professional who already has the equipment and experience to get the job done quickly, safely, and efficiently.
We Understand Plumbing Codes
Because we are licensed, this means that our team has a thorough understanding of local, state, and national plumbing codes to ensure the safety of you, your property, and all those who visit or inhabit it. Having plumbing that meets the required codes is also one way to increase your property’s resale value.
