The profession Seattle plumbers at Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter understands that plumbing repairs are an investment for your home. Services needed can vary in cost and time needed to complete the repair. One of the best ways to ensure you’re getting the best plumbing price for a home project is to get a second opinion.
Getting multiple estimates for installation or plumbing repair work will give you an idea of what you should be paying, but it also can warn you of companies that may not have your best interest – and budget – in mind. The highly-skilled technicians on our team are dedicated to treating each home like their own.
We Will Always Give You a Second Opinion
We offer reliable solutions and transparent pricing before we begin any job. When you’re in need of a plumbing professional in Seattle or the surrounding communities, consider these warning signs that you need a second option on your plumbing or sewer project. If you’re considering plumbing or sewer work for your home, look for these warning signs that a second (or third) opinion on a solution, budget and timeline may be in order:
Over the phone estimate: In order to know exactly what’s happening within your plumbing system, the technician needs to see your plumbing system. If a plumbing company is only interested in estimating the cost over the phone, call Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter for a second opinion. If not, you leave yourself vulnerable to a higher rate once the workers arrive on site.
Drastically lower bid: A trustworthy plumbing company will offer fair pricing and transparent fees, but be wary of plumbers whose bid comes in drastically lower than any other company. The low estimate may not account for all the labor needed, and once the plumber begins the work, he’ll let you know of the additional fees before completing the project.
Inflated bid: Getting more than one opinion about viable solutions and pricing is the best way to snuff out when a plumbing company is padding the estimate.
