Hiring quality tradesmen can be challenging. While Melbourne has many residential and commercial qualified plumbers, consumers don’t always know who to trust. The tradesmen you should hire have much more than just qualifications. They have passion, experience, and commitment.
At Zabs Plumbing, we understand how important reliability and expertise is to our customers. A plumber should give you complete confidence that they have completed their job to the highest of standards. They should give honest advice, and good advice.
A great plumber will impress you, and make your life easier. They will complete their job quickly, with exceptional workmanship, and even clean up afterwards! Experienced plumbers are efficient and effective problem solvers, with extensive skills and knowledge.
What makes an experienced plumber?
Becoming a plumber requires years of study and on-the-job training, but the best experience is usually gained after that. Experienced plumbers are confident with responsibility, and have worked on many different projects.
An expert plumber will be good at working on the tools, and also at managing a business. When you hire a plumber, you will want more than great workmanship. The right plumber for you will have integrity, provide excellent customer service, and be cost-effective. All of these things come from experience in business, not just plumbing.
Always hire a licensed plumber
All plumbing work in Melbourne needs to be completed by a licensed plumber. To become a plumber, study and coursework are very important. Licensing however, is even more important.
If you have plumbing or gas fitting work at your home or business, this will not make a good DIY project. For your own protection, you are legally required to call a professional for these specialist projects.
Zabs Plumbing are licensed plumbers and gas fitters. Energy Safe Victoria writes ‘always use a licensed gas fitter for any installation, repairs or renovations involving gas work.’
Gas plumbers need to be called for the following projects:
- installing hot water systems
- installing gas-fuelled heaters
- renovations that involve disconnecting or relocating gas appliances.
Questions to ask your plumber
Before you commit to hiring a plumber, we recommend asking them several questions. Talk to your potential plumber about their experience. Ask them how many years they have been in business, and the types of plumbing solutions they are most experienced in providing.
You should also ask your preferred plumbing tradesman about their processes. Ask them how they charge, and how long the job should take them to complete. Ask your plumber if they provide regular servicing, commercial work, or any other services that may be relevant to you.
A qualified plumber will answer your questions with confidence. They will leave you feeling reassured that they are the best choice for you. One of the best skills a professional plumber can have is communication. This is an essential part of providing excellent customer service.
Zabs Plumbing is available 24/7, and we can help you with enquiries and questions at any time of the day or night. Call us now, in Melbourne, on 0448 177 762.
